Karen’s Closet – Going to a Concert

 

 Lady Gaga is in town and we are going to the concert! What is a girl to wear?

Hi friends! Join me as I explore fashion for ladies of a “more interesting age” as my sister-in-law, Stephanie, calls it. I love this season of life because I finally feel that I can have clothes that really define who I am.  I have gotten rid of the clothes that sit in my closet that I never wear and replaced them with clothes that make me feel beautiful!

We were invited to join a group of friends in a suite for the Lady Gaga concert here in Seattle. As with any event one of my first thoughts is: What am I going to wear? I had heard that many of the Lady Gaga fans come to the concert dressed in outfits inspired by the diva herself.  Seashell tops, angel wings and assorted creative  clothing is all the rage for the younger generation. Those sound fun and inspiring, however, I  think I will go for something fashionable but age appropriate. Let’s see what we can find to wear as I search my closet for something fun, with a little flair!

What do you like to wear to a concert and what are your favorite stores? Share with all of our friends in the comments below.

Come feel beautiful with us here at friendsfavz.! Karen

Making Mama Giacomina’s Meatballs with Laurie London

My friend Laurie and I had lots of laughs while filming the other day as we tested out a new recipe for meatballs, which came with an interesting story as well.

Laurie London is a NY Times and USA Today bestselling paranormal romance author. You can catch her on my new friendsfavz web show coming soon to You Tube and hear about  her latest book in the Iron Portal series. She loves vampire stories and has been watching a web series called Vampire Mob. Joe Wilson, the creator, decided after the loss of one of Marcia Wallace, the actress who played one of the main characters, to turn the show into a graphic novel to keep her character “alive”.  He is funding this project through Indie GoGo and you can hear the entire story of how this came about at Vampire Mob on Indie Go Go.

Laurie signed up to support the Vampire Mob graphic novel and one of the perks was a meatball recipe from Mama Giacomina. We decided it would be fun to film our experience making the meatballs and testing out the recipe. They were molto buona!

If you want the exact recipe you will have to check out the Vampire Mob Indie GoGo site!
