Glamorous Glamorous

I was feeling glamorous so I decided to do a little nail shop, just for me.

I gathered all the essentials. Cuticle pusher, cuticle clippers, files, nail buffer and polish.



Since I was feeling glamorous, I decided to add a little sparkle. Nail stickers!


Just stick, press, and file down tips.

My Color of the Season: Gold

This season, I'm loving gold. I think it adds a special glimmery feel to the season. My style is to add in a bit here and there - an accent. Because too much is.... too much!

Here are some of my favorites right now:


Earrings: American Eagle

Headphones: Target

Travel Phone & Card Case: Target

Flats: Forever 21

Scarf: Target

Here's to a shimmery, glimmery season!

Granny DON'T, Granny DO

With the return of some granny fashion, sometimes we can make big fashion mistakes. Take these cute little granny sneakers, for example.


My fashion DON"T would be pairing the granny sneakers with ordinary jeans. Not only does it look dated, it adds weight to your frame.


My fashion DO would be to pair the grannies with a tapered leg jean, which not only has a slimming effect, but is more current too. Isn't it funny how such a tiny variation can make such a difference?


Even better? A little roll-up on the cuff:


The trick when adding in a granny piece is to add just one, and mix it with something current. A little bit of granny goes a long way.

Shoes: Target

Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft (both pairs)

My Color of the Season


My color of the spring and summer season this year is Coral. Coral feels like 1960 to me and I love it - in small doses. On my toes, or perhaps a summery scarf, or a cute little clutch.

And Coral is perfect paired with summer favorites such as White, Navy, and Bright Pink.

This season, it's all about color!

Hi! It's me!

I wanted to tell you about my favorite fashion accessory right now: Gold!

Photo 491

Not real gold, silly. Faux is just fine, and affordable too. Faux is still just as pretty to me.

Here are some of my current faves:

Gold Lace Pocket Watch Pendant (Spool No. 72) $22


Fan Disc Earrings (Forever 21) $1.50


Athena Bracelet (Etsy Seller Cosette) $20


Well, that's what's making me smile right now. Do you have accessory phases too?

Fall Favorites

Adding a few special things to your seasonal wardrobe is like a little pick-me-up. A "Happy Day To Me, From Me" sort of treat. Here is what I'm loving for fall:


1: Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon - I love the look of a stained lip. Not overly made up, but lovely, nonetheless. And, yes, it feels velvety, not dry like a normal lipstain. I love this stuff! My fave? Mulberry Nude. $7.99 at Target.

2: Maybelline Express Finish polish. I love how quickly this polish dries. Perfect shade for my toes: Mocha Blast. $3.49 at Target.

3: Maybelline Express Finish polish. I like the shade Ivory in Seconds for my hands. $3.49 at Target.

4. Aviators (on the cheap!) Let me say that I've owned really expensive sunglasses and really inexpensive ones and the expensive ones break and get lost just as easily as the cheap ones. My vote? Wal-Mart $4.99.

5. Minnetonka moccasins. If you're going to buy moccasins, don't go cheap. I think Minnetonkas are the best, and aren't they just the cutest for fall? I got mine for a great deal: $29 at TJ Maxx. (Normal retail is $45, but well worth it).

Note: I was not paid to endorse these items. I just happen to enjoy them.
