Retro Swimsuits For Me Please

If your like me, I have all kinds of mixed emotions when it comes to buying a swimsuit.  First of all, I love water and water activities, probably just as much as the kids do.  So, not wearing a swimsuit, because I’m not 100% happy with my body is not an option.  So, I am thrilled that there are a ton of swimsuit selections out there for us curvy divas who like to actually swim, and retro seems to be the swimsuit style for me.   I love how these suits can cover the areas that I’m most concerned about, and since I’m pear-shaped, I like to have a little extra cover on my butt & thighs.   Awww…..heck who am I kidding, I would say no matter what size you are, most ladies like a little coverage in the arse.  LOL  So, below are some retro suits that I think are made to play in the water, and look good while you’re at it.

(Just so you know… can now pay for Amazon Prime on a monthly basis.  $10.99 a month, or $99 a year, it just depends on how much you shop here.  

(I shop at Amazon a ton, I also enjoy the music, movies, and digital books, so a yearly membership makes more sense for my family and me)!

Although the wedding day is very special, it’s the ring that let’s everyone know that you found your someone special in life.  In my own love story, I’m going to tell you that I lost my wedding ring twice.  You heard it, and how that happened I have no idea, but I did, and I was young, and didn’t have insurance on it.  Ouch!  Having said that,  I decided to replace it with something that had some bling, without the price.  I opted for a simple 1 ct. 14K gold band ring with simulated diamonds, that if it were real deal, would cost me over $2000 today.  In reality I got this simple beauty for the super saving price of $200.  Cha-Ching!  🙂          





I have had this ring for over 20 years now, and it looks just as good as when I purchased it all those years ago.  In fact, I have bought several other pieces though out the years, and I am a huge fan of all things big, bold & beautiful without the huge price!   AND this brings me to your wedding day and how you can save on your jewelry accessories for yourself and your bridal party.
