Change is Good for the Soul :)

I've been wearing the same makeup and the same hairstyles for the past six months or so. Today I vowed to make some type of change. I put my hair in big curlers to add some volume and put on ruby lip gloss. Boy, what a boost in energy and confidence I got just by doing that! It's amazing what a little change will do :)

My New Addiction: Project Runway

After America’s Next Top ended their season, I’ve become addicted to the newest fashion reality show: Project Runway. Hosted by Victoria’s Secret , Heidi Klum, Project Runway is a competition with aspiring fashion designers clamoring to be the next “It” designer.

Each designer is creative in their own right, and at this point I don’t really have a favorite. I will say that I like Santino’s innovative vision. He definitely does not want to be like everyone else.

Now's the Time to Shop!

With the holidays over with, this is the time that most stores want to clear out their fall/winter products to begin making room for spring merchandise. This is also the time when most retailers do inventory, so many markdowns are being done to get rid of stuff. If you want some great deals, now's the time to shop :)

I've shopped Macy's and it seems like their whole store is on sale! They have some really cute stuff at 50-60% off....
