No More Mammogram Excuses!

Nicole Oswalt

This post was sponsored by Hologic.

IMG_1358.jpeg

 Hello, my mid-life ladies! I know I usually talk to you about fashion or entertaining, but can we get serious for just a minute? I just spent a few hours with my daughter Brittany and my precious granddaughter Lottie Jane, and every time I do that I think about how I can’t wait to watch my grandchildren graduate from high school, or walk down the aisles at their weddings, or have kids of their own. So at this point in my life, I try to do everything I can to make sure I am going to be around for a long time. That means staying active, making healthier food choices, and yes—getting regularly scheduled mammograms. No woman looks forward to it, and many actually fear the discomfort they THINK is inevitable. In fact, a 2017 study actually found that to be the top reason women put off having their first mammogram.¹ But ladies, I have learned about Hologic’s Genius™️ 3D Mammography™️ exam and I am here to tell you that now there are truly NO MORE EXCUSES to put this off. The Genius exam uses the SmartCurve™️ breast stabilization system, which uses a CURVED surface (imagine that) to mirror the shape of the breast. The SmartCurve system has been clinically proven to make your exam more comfortable.² 93% of women who previously had reported moderate to severe discomfort with standard compression reported improved comfort with the SmartCurve system.² Not only is it more comfortable, but the quality of the image is not compromised.² Hologic’s Genius exam detects more invasive cancers, reduces false positives, and is FDA approved as superior to conventional 2D mammography for all women, including those with dense breasts.³’⁴’⁵

IMG_4513.jpg

Like I said before, I know I usually post more about bags and shoes than medical exams, but when Hologic approached me about this post and I read about this technology, I knew it was something that I HAD to spread the word about. So NO MORE EXCUSES, ladies! When it comes time for your mammogram, be sure to check out which medical facilities offer the Genius™️ 3D Mammography™️ exam with the SmartCurve system. To find the nearest facility that offers this technology, visit www.Genius3DNearMe.com and enter your zip code. 

The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam (also known as the Genius™ exam) is only available on a Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system. It consists of a 2D and 3D™ image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired 2D image or a 2D image generated from the 3D™ image set. There are more than 6,000 Hologic 3D Mammography™ systems in use in the U.S. alone, so women have convenient access to the Genius exam. To learn more about the Genius exam, visit http://www.Genius3DNearMe.com.

The first look is a confetti print top $42.95 with some great fitting cut offs $62.95. I wore a small in the top (it runs large) the shorts were a great length with the cutest little stars on the side. The next look was this fun purple snakeskin A-line dress $62.95. I wore a medium.

Inspiring pretty looks from Blue Girl...

Nicole Oswalt

Blue Girl is located in Meridian MS and if is full of fashions for all occasions. People ask me all the time what my style is. I really just love change. Clothing is a way I express the way I am feeling that day. One of the reasons I love this boutique is there are so many different inspirations in one place. The first look is the red and pink combo with a beautiful pink top-$36 and the pleated midi skirt $49. This is definitely a Carrie Bradshaw outfit. The blue floral dress-$69 has a boho flare that satisfies the free spirit that I will never shake. And finally this flirty feminine lace top $62. This top does require a cam but it is so pretty. I paired it with these two-toned frayed jeans $49. These jeans fit great and have so much stretch. The bags are so cute for summer tote $49 backpack $48 and round bag $39. . I have done a video of some of their really fun accessories on my Instagram stories. You should follow them on Instagram @likeablugirl and on Facebook @bluegirl. They are happy to ship;

My favorites for the Beach and Pool

Nicole Oswalt

I send a lot of time at our pool in the backyard and love to go to the beach when I can. All of the suits below I have either tried on or own. So they revery flattering. You can shop these Items by clicking on the pictures. I know finding the perfect suit as a mid-lifer can be. a real challenge. So I thought I would share a few of my favorite suits and accessories.I also thought you might like a few tips.

  1. You need a new suit at least every 2 years. The style change and wearing a suit that is not on trend can really age you.

  2. DON’T do matchy matchy with the cover up and swimsuit.

  3. A black chic suit with a great hat and cover up is always a safe bet.

  4. Big floral prints can me risky. They don’t work for everyone.

  5. A swim skirt is fine but you are way past the cheerleader days. So no big pleated skirts.

My Amazon Haul for May

Nicole Oswalt

Hi Y’all! I have linked all of these cute amazon items, I also want to share a few things about a few of the items. The Black top with flowers took about 3 weeks to get here but it was well worth it. The flowers are not embroidered like they appear in the ad but the shirt is adorable and well worth the money. The red striped to runs big so size down.. The red ruffle top and high low top run a little on the small size. I was please with everything on this haul except the pink dress with embroidery runs very small but it is cute. I will send it back. Also the kimono is cute but it has some words from another language on it. I still may keep it. I you would like to buy anything I would really appreciate you clicking on the picture and going through that Link. It will give me a small commission. Happy shopping!!

Vacation Looks from Pink Possum

Nicole Oswalt

If you haven’t checked out Pink Possum lately you are missing out!! I have always loved shopping there and this spring they are flat out KILLING IT. The first look is a romper. I know not all Rompers were made for all ages but this one is sexy and Soo flattering without baring it all. This color is chic and neutral. This next look would be so cute for Memorial Day. This striped dress has the cutest ties on the shoulders. It is flown and hits about 2 inches above the knee you could also wear it tunic style with white jeans. The last look is a beautiful midi dress. It is perfect for a cover up but the fabric is plenty thick enough to wear as a dress out to dinner. The print is so pretty and looks designer. You can Follow Pink Possum on Instagram and Facebook for new arrivals and shopping events. You can use my discount code Jane15 for 15% off.

Sephora Favorites

Nicole Oswalt

I have several must haves for Midlife ladies. My new Favorite is the Laura Mercia setting powder that DOES NOT settle into your lines… Un yes finally.. I have found a make up primer that BLURS your lines: it is a little pricey but can you really put a price on that. I love the Lancome Highlighter. I have heard many women my age say they can not use highlighter but I swear this on makes me look younger. My most common questions are about my tan. I spray tan in a booth or from Haylee but I keep it fresh an extend it with Tan Luxe Butter. It is the ONLY tan extender that truly does keep you tan and moisturized. It is crazy good. I also love this setting spray so much. I have linked them all below. Simply Click on the photos. My outfit is linked al my Liketoknowit page or you can click on the pick at the top of the Blog. The knew IT Foundation is a game changer. Last but not lest are the Tarte H2O lip glosses. They are so fabulous.
