I spoke about the trend of matching makeup to clothes, now matching nail polish to your shoes is also becoming popular. When I was in high school we changed our polish every night to match our outfits, but never a pedicure! Seems a little time consuming, but beautiful non the less.
Do you do this, I may start now … cause I’m really liking it!
Happy Saturday and I hope your days are more exciting than ever right now. I have a fun new contest next week, can’t wait to share it with you!
Thanks for reading and commenting….you guys are the best! XoX

Words cannot express how much I love these boots! I saw them at Barney’s online a few weeks ago. Perfectly paired with rolled up jeans makes for a killer outfit.
And just imagine my excitement when I found this DIY. My weekend project for sure.
Instructions are so simple, pictures tell the whole story!
What a great way to start off the week, right?

Has your hair lost its sparkle? Maximize your GLOSS effect with these techniques!
Mix several tablespoons of honey and olive oil. Then, apply this homemade mask to ends, working your way up to coat the entire head. Leave in for 20 minutes and rinse out with shampoo and conditioner. “It’s mother nature’s secret to shiny hair!”
Over time, the accumulation of styling product can be a drag. It clings on like a needy boyfriend, weighing hair down and stripping its sparkle. To ditch the buildup, I recommends adding one tablespoon of baking soda to two tablespoons of your shampoo. The sodium bicarbonate will remove the stubborn, sticky residue.
You wouldn’t brush your teeth with sandpaper and the same should be said of your locks. “Upgrade to a natural boar bristle brush,” says Jill Guzzo, stylist at NYC’s Butterfly Studio Salon. Natural bristles evenly distribute the natural oils in hair and smooth the cuticle to create a polished finish.
Natural coral lipstick, topped with a light layer of gloss.”
Makeup artist Matin Maulawizada, brand ambassador for Laura Mercier, was inspired by the rock ‘n roll vibe of the 1980s when he created Claire Danes‘s eye-catching look at the 2011 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. But rather than giving the star a thick swipe of opaque lipstick, he opted for a more contemporary finish: Gel lip color in a sheer red orange.
Whether it be your hair or lips, both look better shining! Gloss always – thick heavy lips that look dry are just not kiss worthy!

Incredibly stylish, fashion forward and simply styled in such an elegant way. Alix Cherry never disappoints with her outfit posts!
The ASOS socks or over the knee nylons are my favorite part. Inspiration X ‘s three on this one.
Finally completed so much more of my decorating to do list, I’ve been crossing them off feverishly. I’ll take more pics this weekend and share. Finishing up is the best part, ya know, when it all starts to come together. Right?
Hope everyone has had a great week so far, if not, well hell it’s Friday tomorrow, so it’s about to get better!

A little pink and orange inspirations for your Wednesday. I have been a long time fan of these Brian Atwood pumps. While saving up to purchase them I came across this Alexander McQueen Wool Crepe dress. Wow is all I can say, color blocking at it’s finest!
But before you crush your budget, maybe save up for the heels, and find an amazing look alike for the dress! That’s what I am going to do.
Looking forward to restarting my DIY dining room project again tonight. Last night’s progress, I completed over half the table!
Hope you had a lovely Wednesday?

I Am Loving These?
Now obviously if you’re my age you won’t pair these stirrups with this skirt! But with a longer Tunic sweater and a Belt yes you can pull this look off! Just because we’re not 25 years old anymore doesn’t mean we can’t still look stylish and sexy!
Just take the NEW LOOKS that are available out there and make them your own! Modify, modify!
If you want the look of a smooth, supple stirrup/boot with the sexy style of your favorite towering pump, slip on these thigh high stirrups. Smooth fabric zips up the back of your leg, snapping across the back of the thigh for a stretch fit. Footless stirrup buttons under your shoe to finish the look. Stretch leatherette fabric is cut to contour and fit close. Height: 27″. Available at BeBe $69
