Heat or cold is no excuse not to wear a dress!

Our Wear the Dress Challenge that starts today…… I’m so EXCITED for the ladies that have already joined us to make reparation by wearing a dress this lent.
But how can you wear a dress in the cold?
Sweet Marian wrote, “Sorry sweetie, when it’s 14 degrees with a wind chill of -2, I am NOT wearing a dress.” 🙂
Aww Marian thank you for writing!
Aww Marian thank you for writing! Sending lots of warmth your way <3 🙂
But the whole purpose of penance is that it IS hard right?
So, wearing a dress in the cold sounds like a perfect lenten penance to me? 🙂
But, I hate to break it to you… Wearing a Dress in the cold actually will NOT make you colder at all.
In fact in the 20+ years that I have been wearing a dress (skirt) everyday we have had -28F temperatures in winter, and we have had 105F temperatures in summer….
so heat or cold is no excuse not to wear a dress!
Dresses (skirts) can actually be warmer.
Let me explain:
  1. If done properly, they trap heat closer to our bodies.
  2. It is easier to have many layers under a dress.
  3. And lastly, YOU CAN WEAR LEGGINGS or even Pajamas Pants UNDER your dress if you want?! (See Marian you can do it and be warm too!) 🙂
Plus, by joining in our challenge I will help you with any obstacles you mighy have by giving you tips for staying warm or tips for finding skirts or whatever you come up with. 🙂
Wear the dress challenge
 SO won’t you join us for  Wear the Dress Challenge for Lent this year?
 Doors close Sunday, so we can hunker down for 40 days, making reparation wearing dresses together!  Join us now while you still can. 🙂
With MUCH love to all the Marian’s out there <3 ,
Rita xo 🙂

Need a bit of pampering this February?

Remember when we were kids and Valentine’s Day was exciting? We would get those small cards and heart-shaped sugar candies. Each heart was printed with a message such as “Be Mine”, or “Cutie Pie”, or “Miss You”.

I just received a Valentine’s box with three wildcrafted products from Annmarie Skin Care to create a spa quality facial at home. Opening this bundle brought me the same excitement as when I was younger–except this time these “treats” are infused with herb botanical extracts and are actually good for me. Haha 🙂 During this boring lockdown Valentine’s Day I’m going to take time for me at home.

My at-home facial starts with the Charcoal Cacao Mask. It is gentle, with soothing organic aloe vera and coconut charcoal to help pull out impurities. After washing it off, my senses are awakened and my skin glowing.

The next step is the Kaolin Micro Exfoliant, with a hint of lavender, sage, and lemongrass. ahhhh A perfect blend smell  and essential minerals to help leave  skin polished and flawless.

The last of the pampering steps is the Illuminating Pearl Mask. This royal treatment will leave skin feeling like you’ve stepped out of the spa and spent hundreds of dollars. It’s a gorgeous formula with wildflower honey, soothing organic turmeric root, and brightening pearl powder. It’ll get you glowing and elevate your skin routine to pure bliss.

I was so much in love with these products, I reached out to Annmarie Skin Care to see if they would create a Valentine’s sample set with these pampering favorites for me to share with you.
