Beauty Buzz: Benefit

Oh!! How I wish I was bold enough to wear eyeshadow colors like these from Benefit.

Man, it’s not fair! Why didn’t I get that daring make-up gene? Sometimes, I will by an eyeshadow in an amazing color…and it just sits there. Just waiting for me to try it. Poor little lonely eye-popping shadow…sigh.

SSSSSSSnakes…

There’s something about this slinky reptile that makes me want to crawl out of my skin! But, jewelry…I can do. Add a little edge to your outfit and accessorize with snakes. Don’t be afraid! These won’t bite!

The Red Carpet Issue

It’s definitely a Monday. So blah when I woke up…so uninspired…until I turned on my television.

If you have “On Demand” go over to the Sundance Channel and watch the documentary “The Red Carpet Issue.” It’s a behind-the-scenes look at how the red carpet, fashion, designers, and celebrities come together to form this mega-money making business. It’s pretty interesting. It’ s broken down here in 4-part previews. Enjoy!


Pretty in Paisley

Sometimes, I like to dress a little girlie. When this feminine mood strikes, I throw on a skirt and a frilly top. Believe me when I say it doesn’t happen very often. But, it does happen. Today, was one of those days. I am in love with this paisley skirt! I found it at Macy’s for only $7.99! I told you I’m a bargainista! This is my first time wearing it. It makes me feel like a hippie! (That’s a good thing.) I was going to try and add this pretty violet belt, but I HATE to over accessorize. It’s one of my pet peeves. So, I went without it. A great outfit for a beautiful spring day in L.A.!

Do you dare?

I love shoes.
I love pretty shoes.
I love interesting and creative shoes.
I love eye-catching shoes.

I am not loving these shoes.

I’m sorry shoes.


Bargainista Finds II

Yes…this chick went on a little shopping excursion yesterday. I finally made it out to the “Bargainista” shopping center. You know…the one with Marshalls, Ross, Old Navy, and Nordstrom Rack. I didn’t make it to Nordstrom Rack…booooo!

This (left) is what I wore, but I think I look yuck…so I played with the pic a little bit. Anywhoodles…

I had been in the market for a simple black cross body handbag, but I didn’t want to pay too much for one. Considering I go through handbags like crazy. This Nine West bag is perfect and it was only $22!

The shoes were a steal…the peep toe Madden Girl’s were on clearance for $20 and the tan gladiator wedge was $14.99. I can’t wait to wear them!

I also picked up two tee’s on clearance at Old Navy. My work is never done!

Straw Fedora Comeback?

Are you a hat lover? I admire those who can pull off a hat. Especially, a fedora…how about a straw fedora? Also known as the Panama Hat, this could be spring’s hottest hat…or will it just hit the ground face first? I love them! I think they are very chic, but some think otherwise. I would take any one of the hats below. I want to know what you think. Yes or No?

Curvy Girl Travels: Sun, Fun, and Baseball

I’m baaaaack! You didn’t know I was gone? I took a road trip this weekend to Arizona. My hubby bought us tickets to see a Los Angeles Dodger’s spring training game versus the Angels. Since my mother-in-law lives out there we decided to make it a family weekend. Read more
