Fish and Chips and Rimmel

March 19, 2015, 12:30 p.m.

Hiya. Let's talk beauty. Here's my dirty little secret: I don't like to spend a lot of money on products. Sorry. Would much rather save those g's for bags, shoes, and clothes, which has led me to the following discovery. 

 Not only do the British have a delectable accent, fish and chips, and the royals, they have ace makeup in the form of Rimmel. I am quite positive Kate Middleton would love. It is fit for a prinCESS (emphasis on the cess). Try it, and see if it works for you. That is all. Cheerio.

P.S. Please read this entire segment with an accent. Please.

Frankly, My Dear

If pictures could sing, you would be able to hear the stirring, soulful melody of Tara's Theme floating through the air. And perhaps if pictures could talk, these would tell you the story of one Miss Scarlett O'Hara imparting the hope felt in her voice becuase "after all, tomorrow is another day." Maybe if pictures could love, you would feel the deep desire buried in the heart of Mr. Rhett Butler. 

Gone with the Wind. Please carry me away.

First Round Draft Picks

Sept. 2, 2014, 1:50 p.m.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Selecting a nail color is stressful. There. I said it. Is that shallow? Absolutely. Is it honest? Unfortunately. Personally, I wanted to save some room in my worry bucket for my Fantasy Football team, so I did a little research which will allow me to sail into the fall nail trend colors with ease.

Good thing I drafted Peyton Manning because these babes are definitely first round material.

P.S. Take this quiz to discover your nail polish personality. I couldn't resist (insert demure giggle).



Met Gala Glam

If you want to feel like a star, all you need is some red carpet. Perhaps a coutoure gown or two. Even better if it's custom. Top it off with a man on your arm and the glow will be too bright to handle.
