I’m always on the look out for different pieces of jewelery. Especially, different shapes. And I’ve kind of been leaning towards triangles. It’s something a little different and always interesting. There’s nothing like adding a little bit of shape to your necklace, ring, bracelet, or your earrings. I love that black Marc Jacobs bangle. It’s on sale too! It probably won’t fit me because I have man hands! LOL
I’ve been looking for a magenta shoe and I’ve found it. Say hello to my new love affair. I really don’t need many words to describe the love for a shoe. It’s something you either understand or you don’t. And doesn’t a picture speak a thousand words? Just look at these gorgeous H by Halston pumps/wedges I bought at Baker’s yesterday. Yes, they were on sale. Sorry, they aren’t on the web site. I think I actually drooled when I saw the sole on these shoes.
Sometimes, I get a little weird about my eyes. It could be when a makeup artist is putting on eyeliner, rubbing them when I’m tired, or I feel like there a loose eyelash roaming around in there, and especially taking off my eye makeup.
I’ve tried the makeup up removing wipes, but sometimes they’ll burn my eyes. Does that happen to you? And what do you do when you have something irritating your eye? Do you splash it with water a million times, hoping it will come out?
Thank goodness I don’t worry about that anymore. A few months ago, I got a free sample of these VISINE Soothing Wipes. Hellooooo life saver! These bad boys remove eye makeup, irritants with a couple of gentle swipes and no burning! Yay! And like the name say’s, they are soothing. They retail for around $5.99 and up for 30 wipes, but there’s a coupon for $1 off here. Your eyes will thank you for it.
Disclosure: The item was gifted, this is NOT a paid post. The above is my true and honest opinion.
I’m really not sad. LOL. I’m just loving this blue top! I bought this at a yard sale that was held by Stylist Reah Norman. Thanks Reah! It’s by Daniel Rainn and it has these amazing ruffles and pockets. You know how I feel about pockets. I wore it to a high school graduation last night. Which had a whopping 680 graduates by the way and it was in a sports arena! WOW.
Back to the outfit…I went simple with my jewelery, only because the color was so bold. My earrings are these cute little rhinestone bows I bought at Torrid and my bracelets are from Lane Bryant. My shoes are from the Kenneth Cole outlet. These suede wedges have a cool magenta stripe on the heel. The belt is from another top and I had to wear it because the top was a little big and I wanted to add some shape. I really liked this look, I’m guessing it was the color. It made me feel a little sassy! LOL
Handbag shopping is not for the weak. Buying that perfect bag isn’t an easy task. There’s so much to consider; style, color, price, size, designer, and the wow factor. I know! It’s stressful just thinking about it, right?
What if I told you there’s a place, where you can not only shop from an inventory of over 25,000 bags, but you can also sell your own handbags, interact with the sellers, and chat with your buyers all in one place? Do I have your bag obsessed attention now?
Bags Bonanza, is an online marketplace selling designer bags at discount prices. Now, it’s not just any normal marketplace. In fact it’s the best eBay alternative out there. Search for your future bag by brand, style, color, material, and price. It’s sooooo easy to use.
In fact, I’ve been on this vintage handbag kick lately. I found three vintage bags that I’m really interested in. The Dooney and Bourke ($144.95), Gucci ($139.00), and Coach ($18.95). OK, I know the Coach bag is an amazing price, but I’m loving the other one’s too! Ugh! Decisions…decisions.
If you decide you’d rather make a little cash, then selling on Bags Bonanza is really the way to go. Remember, when I said they were the best eBay alternative? Well, they are. Just take a look at their fees. They are over 50% lower. You can even start selling right away and you’ll get automatic Google promotion. Excuse me while I sift through my bag inventory…I just might start selling.
Find the handbag that was meant to be yours. Brands like Fendi, Christian Dior, Burberry, Chloe, and Louis Vuitton are waiting for you! Visit www.Bags.Bonanza.com today.

The minute I saw Chanel Iman in this amazing turquoise dress, I knew I had to write this post. I’m not sure who the designer is, but I do know she wore it to the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
Raise your hand if you wish a designer would make this gown for us curvy girls (raises hand).
This has always been one of my favorite colors. It reminds me of the turquoise jewelery my mom would buy me from Arizona. Did you notice there are even a few aqua colored items that made the cut?
Doesn’t this cool blue makes you think of water? This really makes me think of the beach. Which has me crushing on #10 from Style369.com. Can you tell summer is right around the corner?

Here are some awesome photos by John Sciulli from the COVERGIRL Beauty Bar event at the Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood. You can see below Makeup Artist Amy Nadine applying blush, before I got my hair done. Read the post about the event here.

I’m sorry I don’t have any pics from this event. We weren’t allowed to take any photos or video. But, I can tell you this chic salon was packed.
I got my makeup done by the very sweet and talented Amy Nadine. My braided hair was courtesy of the salon. They have a Braid Bar there and only charge $25 to have your hair braided in your style of choice. I know I’ll be back!
They also offered manicures, pedicures, blow outs, and spray tan. Hypnotic was on hand with their new Harmonie Liqueur vodka. We enjoyed purple cocktails, eats, and sweets. We also walked a way with a bag of goodies.
I was going to wear a dress, but it was cloudy here in Los Angeles. I wore this feather-inspired flowy top from Nordstrom Rack, my (fave) City Chic wide leg jeans, and these (new favorite) coral Dolce Vita wedges I also scored at Nordstrom Rack. And you know I’m bangle crazy right now, so I wore these that I got at Avenue, my ring is from H&M, and the earrings are from a small boutique.
