Take Eucerin’s “Skin First Pledge”

I am always on the hunt for that perfect hand cream. You know the one that doesn’t feel greasy, but can still moisturize. Yes, I’m one of those skin health people. You should be one too! When was the last time you took a second out of the day to handle your skin care business? It’s so important! That’s it…you need to take a pledge…now! Eucerin is here to help and you get a free sample (I love free!) of their Daily Skin Balance while you’re at it (for a limited time). All you have to do is take their…

Bank Breaker V$. Bargain: Snakeskin Pump

Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly need another pair of shoes…I start craving a pair of snakeskin pumps. Man, I have shoe issues. I have my eye on these Dolce Vita Adra Peep-Toes, but unfortunately they cost $231.95. That’s beyond my budget at this point. Let’s see what the bargain pump can do for me.The ‘bargain’ pump is the Madeline Gabean Peep-Toe for $32.97. Not bad, not bad.So, is it going to be the ‘Bank Breaker’ or the ‘Bargain’ pump?

New York City: Part II

Guess what lucky duckies? I found a few more pics from New York City. Ok, they aren’t the best quality, but it’s all I have. And I really want to encourage you all to head out to San Diego for next year’s BlogHer conference.The first pic is an outfit I wore to do some running around in.

Handbag Delight: Rebecca Minkoff

As I walked across the BlogHer Expo, I came to an Ebay/Bill Me Later booth. That is where I saw almost every woman walk by and pick up this black leather clutch.

I had so much fun making new friends, networking, and learning from the best in the blogging world. Plus there was so much swag! Amazing!But, it wasn’t the perfect trip…let me briefly explain.

RikkeCopenhagen, Denmark Sticky Sweet Danish Who is your favorite fashion designer and why? I actually don’t have a favorite, I like to mix things up. And I don’t think that clothes have to be expensive to look good. But no doubt Balmain has great influence this season.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
