Celebrity or Not?

This has not been a good week to be someone famous, and I, for one, am content to be myself, just Linda, normal suburb-living wife and mother, driving the kids around in my minivan.
Yes, I envy Farrah Fawcett's beauty and especially her smile, but she had to put up with a lot of criticism throughout her life, which ended earlier this week due to cancer.
No, I never wanted to trade places with Ed McMahon, although he was a very lucky guy to have spent so much time with Johnny Carson. Johnny was a class act, which we no longer see on tv.
And I definitely am glad I'm not Michael Jackson, or LaToya or Janet, or any of the Jacksons! They may all be famous, good-looking, and rich, but I would never want to live in the bubble of celebrity.
He may not be a household name, but Billy Mays sold household products through his infomercials, and he also passed away this week.

As I said, I'm happy and content leading a quiet and normal life. And in my quiet and normal life, I like to wear comfortable clothes. No glittery gloves, no fancy duds, and certainly no tight red bathing suit! I am blessed to feel good and look good in the many offerings of Jockey Person to Person TM. The clothes are both classy and classic; they won't go out of style in one season. The exercise clothes make you look great as you're working out, which then makes you look better in the casual clothes when you're lean and fit.

Look through our catalog and select your favorites. You won't become famous, but you will look better and feel better, so your own life will be transformed.

Clearing the Clutter

I admit to being the world's worst packrat. I keep everything, partly because I don't want to put more stuff in the landfill (if you've never toured a landfill, you should go see one someday -- it's an eye-opener) and partly because you never know when something just might come in handy! This weekend, however, our family is holding a garage sale. We have TONS of STUFF to purge from our house: Barbies, Spiderman toys, stuffed animals, books, dollhouse, puzzles, and clothes. Unfortunately, people don't buy grownup clothes at yard sales. Kids' clothes sell great, but what to do with my silk blouse from the 1980's that looked so sharp way back when? I plan to donate my clothes to our church, which in turn gives it out to the neighborhood friends who come by on Saturdays for meals.
How do I keep from accumulating so much in the future? One way is to make smarter purchases. The Jockey Person to Person clothing line can help. We have clothes that can be mixed and matched into several different outfits. Take a pair of capri pants, put it with a matching camisole, and maybe a hoodie jacket, and you have a great all-around "on the go" look. Change the capris to a skirt, dump the hoodie for a shawl, and you're ready for a night on the town. Save the capris for working out at the gym the next day, or a hike through the park.
By using only 5 pieces (2 bottoms, 2 tops ,1 jacket) you can maximize your wardrobe dollars by making at least 8 looks. Add your own accessories to dress up or dress down the outfits, or use one of our shawls that come in 7 fabulous colors.
