DownEast: Beautiful and Modest

Beautiful and modest.
It's as if I am writing about myself.
Ha!

Growing up, I was always modest in my appearance.
No low cut shirts, short short skirts, skimpy clothes in general.
It just wasn't me.  For the love of God, I used to sleep with my bra on.  (Trivia fact for when we play "fun things you didn't know about me.")

Being raised LDS also contributed to my modest dressing.  Going to church on Sundays we are requested to wear a dress for Sacrament meetings.  The 80's lead to some horrific dresses, modest or not.  Thankfully, DownEast has stylish yet modest casual dresses.  I like to casual some Sundays.

What I like about DownEast is that the dresses they have can even be worn on the job.  While I don't see the public in anyway shape or form and feel I should be allowed to go in pj's to work, the owner doesn't quite get that idea so he requires four out of five days we dress business casual. The fifth day is jeans day...yay!

Also I am a little, how do we say, fluffy.  Ok, fine, I am overweight.  It's a fact.  I own it.
Well DownEast also tells you what dresses flatter what shapes.  No more Omar the tent maker for me!!!

I have fallen in love with this dress:

Reminds me of the dress Julia Roberts wore to the polo game in Pretty Woman.

I digress.

Really, in this day & age, it's hard to dress modest at any age.  Skin is in, as they say.  What is so great about this modest casual dresses is that they are in style for any age.


Check this dress out...perfect for on the job:

Pair with tights and flats...perfect ensamble for a fall work day.  Or running errands if you want to dress up but not go over the top.  Even knee high brown boots would look good.  No nude hose though, I am anti nude hose.  Personal choice but that is just the way it has to be.

Modest goes a long way I think.  Always leave them wanting more.

Tell me, check out DownEast & tell me what your fav item is...anything at all.  I'm dying to see what you pick.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
