Thursday Moda #52: One Year Celebration continues with a Collaboration.

Welcome to the 52nd Thursday Moda linkup, yes it has been a year! Hooray! Thank you all for making this linkup super fun and bringing your awesome sense of style each week (while inspiring me along the way), by linking up. If you stopped by yesterday, you know that I started the celebration early. My mini me and I coordinated our outfits complete with Fresh Flowers and all. Vivi stole the blog, as always. Today, I am continuing the celebration but I am totally getting all fancy on you. I am sharing a Stunning Red Gown I recently received via "Places to Go" - a local boutique here in Michigan. It came at the perfect time because it was 'the dress' to style for my one year anniversary of Thursday Moda.

To help me celebrate today I got together 9 beautiful ladies who have their own style blogs. They also got dressed up and in spirit are celebrating with me today - I cannot thank them enough. Each outfit is so different from the next - they all have very different styles - but they look equally amazing. Below in the post you will get to see every outfit up close and I listed these lovely fashion bloggers in the chronological order that I have gotten to know them through blogging. With most of them I have had the lovely opportunity to collaborate with, before. Pop by their blogs and take a look at their outfits, too! =)

So I mentioned this Beautiful Red Gown (my favorite color and it is just right to wear it today in celebration of one year of Thursday Moda) was gifted to me c/o "Places to Go". They also included these Gorgeous Block Heel Sandals on the package and let me tell you they made the perfect fancy duo combined with the fancy red dress. This lovely boutique sent me a few other things and you will get to see those on the blog in the upcoming weeks. I had received this package close to Christmas but I 'saved' it to style these pieces for today. I amped up the volume with an arm party, a few semi-dainty rings, some fabulous statement earrings which have stones in burgundy, gray and olive green and my most favorite red lipstick (this one). I am carrying a little fan-shaped maroon clutch that I have had in my closet forever. It is from Old Navy just like yesterday's Fabulous Red Fur Bag. And yes I put my hair up (though it was difficult because it is still a pretty short bob) but a few bobby pins helped for a tiny bun, which I accessorized with a red polka dot bow barrette. Oh and my new marble sunglasses match the marble face of my watch. I got them both very recently for a steal at Wet Seal (they are closing their stores) so they had some fantastic sales.

  34. The remainder will be taken care of by the shampoo, which will get rid of the THC metabolites from the scalp. Look no further than Testclear’s Toxin Rid Rescue Mouthwash when you are in a stalemate because of an imminent swab test. With its specific recipe, this mouthwash lives up to its name and literally comes to your rescue. It is also quite simple to use, as it functions similarly to normal mouthwash. Simply grab your tiny bottle of Toxin Rid Rescue and excuse yourself for a few moments. Take a drink of your mouthwash and dash to the nearest restroom. Toxin Rid Rescue, as effective as it is at achieving its primary goal, does not have the finest flavor though. The flavor is likely to be metallic, harsh, and salty. Testclear’s Toxin Rid Rescue Mouthwash is a detox mouthwash that claims to aid in the passing of any saliva drug test. It is a potent formula that can completely cleanse your mouth and help you pass any saliva drug test within an hour of taking it. Put one-third of the mouthwash in your mouth before you are going for the oral drug test. Many of the best synthetic pee kits also contain heating pads to maintain the perfect temperature range.If you plan to keep samples around just in case, it’s important to remember that a pre-mixed solution has a very short shelf life. You must store the container in either the refrigerator or the freezer. This requirement is adequate if you live alone or with understanding roommates. However, when you combine the appearance of the synthetic urine with a slight smell, it is not easy to hide from people you don’t want knowing that you cheat your drug tests.
