Metallics are still pretty big, so I'm thinking about this pair of Steve Madden's. Normally $80, it's on sale for $31.97...and now you can get an extra 15% off on top of the sale price!
Piperlime's secret sale! Enjoy 15% off women’s final sale shoes, already up to 70% off. Enter TOPSECRET at checkout by April 27.
Aw, crap, I just remembered that I was on a clothing fast! No shoes for me ;(

I used one of those metal Altoids mints holder for this lipstick case. If you're a sticker collector like me, all you have to do is gather some of your favorite stickers together or you could even break out acrylic paints if you really want to get fancy ;)
I carry my lipstick, those small perfume samples, a spare battery for my voice recorder, and any loose change in my case. I have another box that I'm going to use as a business card holder.
What kind of projects are you doing for Earth Day?

Recently I've been seeing all those Aveeno commercials on TV which piqued my curiosity. Then one day I noticed a bottle of the Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Body Wash in my shower. My brother or his girlfriend accidentally left it during their visit. So, I tried it out and liked it ;) I put it on a face towel and scrubbed my body. The real test was to see if it would dry out my skin... So I didn't put on any lotion after my shower. Even after 12 hours after my shower I still don't have to put on lotion. I believe that less is more when it comes to putting products on your skin. I think that's part of the reason why so many people have skin cancer.

It's important to take some time out to treat yourself every now and then. Everyday stress is what makes us look older! Take care of your inner beauty - your mind and spirit - and it will take care of you...

What do you tell your little girl when they don't win? Oh sorry, Honey, but you just weren't as pretty as the winner. Why would you want to put your little girl through that?
In one scene a mother was attempting to put lip gloss on her daughter and the daughter just wasn't in the mood...
"I have to do this!" the mother exclaimed.
"You don't HAVE to do anything!" the daughter shouted back. Hilarious!
Here's a little clip of the show...
I'm not sure what compelled me to watch the entire show, but I was just awestruck that this kind of stuff still goes on. Well, what would make me think otherwise, I don't know. Note to self: Stay away from VH1!

So, have I been successful so far in this challenge? Well...um...I have to say No. I blame it on my birthday :) I received a couple gift certificates to Amazon.com and purchased two pairs of shoes. However, I have to return them anyways because they just didn't fit right!
In my defense I have to say that I really do need these shoes. They weren't just some frivolous purchase. I do need a pair of black flats...and the puppy chewed through the only pair of black heels I have, so those are needed as well.
Well, only 20 more days until the challenge is over!

Well, I had no idea that Bongo was still even around until I came across these photos of Kim Kardashian who is the "new face" of Bongo sporting Bongo gear at their fall launch in Los Angeles...
And speaking of Bongo, I did come across these cute Bongo dressy ballet flats that would be great for fall...

I think I'm the only person I know who loves to wear hats. I wear everything from baseball hats to berets to big floppy hats. There's something about a hat that just makes the outfit look more put together. Here's just a very small sample of the hats that I own...
For the summer I think my next purchase will be a big white hat like the Helen Kaminski Organdy Hat pictured here...

So, I celebrated a birthday last week. Can you believe I actually forgot how old I am? I had to calculate it in my head...Ok, so I was born in... Most women my age start to look at their face and really scrutinize every line and sun spot, but me...Well, I've been looking at my hands and noticing every crevice, knuckle wrinkle, and vein. Are my hands looking old? I used to see my mom put hands on her lotion every night before bed and now it's my turn!
I know that I shouldn't really fret over such things. After all, I'm not going to be the pianist that I used to dream of being when I was a little girl. Nobody really pays attention to hands, right? Besides, it's all about what's inside that counts ;) And nowadays there are inventions like lotions and creams that can make your hands lookin' smooth!
This week I've been trying out Curél's new Targeted Therapy Cream which contains soy milk, monoi oil (an interesting blend of Tahitian tiare flower and coconut oil), and of course, Vitamin E...
The cream goes on a little greasy for me (I'm used to using thicker lotions), but then it is quickly absorbed by the skin. It does make my hands noticeably soft after just one use - as stated on the bottle. Even after washing my hands I don't have to reapply the cream. And for me that's pretty exciting because I like everything to be low-maintenance ;)
Check out another review of Curél's Targeted Therapy Hand & Cuticle Cream over at The Makeup Girl. Available at drug stores nationwide or Amazon.com
