Fashion shows, birthdays and valentines, oh my!

February is a fun month for me! It kicked off with a fabulous fashion show at the Total Woman Show. Audrey Wilson of Gemini Models is not only stunning, but she has charisma, and is gracious and all heart! This year’s winner of the Most Total Woman over 40 search goes to the elegant Sherry (age 43). I think her husband was more thrilled, as he hopped up on the stage and gave her a loving embrace, you’d think he had just won a million dollars! Well, he can certainly be proud of his beautiful wife!

It was great being together again. We are family!

I modeled for Northern Reflections,  Just for You Lingerie and Sears. Love those yellow skinnies – I’m not a faded BF jeans girl, I want those yellow jeans!

I had my birthday this week and Jean posted this on my FB.

I love hearts and I always have, perhaps that’s because I was born in February and I am a hopeless romantic and very sentimental! I keep all my cards and letters that I’ve received over the years. Here’s one from my mom, she always made me feel loved and special.

What I’m wearing for Valentine’s Day.

I have a collection of heart necklaces, earrings and rings. I’d rather have fashion jewellery than diamonds!

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day!

My love to you


And Happy Birthday to all my February friends!!!

  1. Excellent modelling! You did a good job of “selling” the clothes–even though you’d prefer the yellow pants. I love the curls in your hair too. I am not surprised at your extensive collection of heart jewelry (that isn’t all of it, is it?). It’s nice to have a signature style, and hearts is yours. Perfect for a February birthday.

      Thank you Jean! I may go back to get the yellow pants. Wish I could do my hair like this myself.

      You’re right, this is only a sample of my extensive heart collection. Did you notice the ring of hearts you gave me? See how they match the earrings with three hearts? I have a necklace that matches too.

      I ❤ hearts!!

    Belated happy birthday and you look so fabulous, I am not worried of getting older, looking at you!

      Thank you Ute! I feel happy and I have as much energy as I had in my 20s. Like you, I believe it’s important to be thankful for the little things every day! Being kind and forgiving does wonders for wrinkles: instead of grumbling, having a bad attitude and holding grudges.

      Have a happy week!

    Very nice collection of hearts! I like them too…

      Oh my dear Dan! How generous you are with kind words!! Thank you so much!!
      Coming from a youthful, beautiful woman is quite a compliment–you look fabulous in a bikini! And “they” say women over 40 shouldn’t wear bikinis. Ha ha!!

      Have a lovely week!

    Congratulations Carmen, for your birthday and for your participation in this very nice show. It’s a very interesting idea to organize a fashion for mature women. Your hairstyle was very nice, and your participation is perfect in the video.
    Have a nice collection of hearts, is very interesting. In Catalonia we do not celebrate Valentine’s Day, our lovers day is on 23 April, St George, men and women that day we give away roses and books. Your mother, always telling you, she was a great woman. Now, you have a daughter who loves you, lucky.

      Thank you Josep-Maria! You are also a February baby! Thanks for sharing some interesting facts about St. George’s Day on April 23 in Catalonia!

      Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine’s Day!
      Wishing you a year full of happiness!!!
      ♥ carmen
