I love makeup as much as the next girl, but I’ve never been one to spend a lot of money for it…especially when it comes to trends.
Right now I am loving bright pink lips! Over the past few weeks I’ve picked up four different lip sticks/stains/balms and glosses…all available in nearly every drugstore, and all under $15! Check out my new favorites…
Even Khloe Kardashian is rocking the hot pink lips!
Do you have a particular pink lip product that you swear by? Let me know in the comments below!
I am so excited about this post for a variety of reasons. First off… does anyone listen to the Elvis Duran show in the morning? I tune in on my way to work every single day, and it really is the most entertaining program on the radio, I love starting my mornings with that crew!
Back in December or so everyone on the show was tasting and raving about these amazing cupcakes and truffles! They mentioned that she sold her truffles online and I was dying to check them out. Once at a computer, I immediately found her website and looked through all of the delicious treats she had available. I hate to admit that I never ended up ordering any… but was thrilled when I heard she was opening up a shop in Avon, CT…which happened to be very close to where I currently live.
I’d been following Miriam, the owner/designer/baker extrordinaire on Twitter and Facebook for a while now and have been completely blown away by the legitimate food porn that she creates and posts on a daily basis.
Taste by Spellbound has officially been opened for less than a month, and I finally made the trip to check it out!
I must say, I truly admire Miriam for a number of reasons…
1- She has a kick a** style. Holy moly, this girl has such a unique but elegant/feminine look…not to mention she has mastered the perfect top knot/ bun!
2-She is so ambitious, a risk taker, and go-getter.
3- She is beyond talented. Let her desserts speak for themselves…you can honestly tell how amazing they are just by looking at them.
I was so glad to finally visit this charming place! Everything was truly delicious and I will surely be back! (I’m dying to get my hands on one of her famous salted caramel cupcakes!)
If you are in Connecticut and looking for some delicious desserts…THIS is the place to go!
I am in an amazing mood this Saturday morning! I woke up at 7:30 (which is pretty early for me) and was lying in bed dreaming about some upcoming beach trips, and the amazing bikini I bought last week when I had a serious urge to workout! I was debating between a run, a hike, a bike ride…I almost got up and joined the gym down the street! I snapped back to reality, and went into my living room to do a couple rounds of ab, arm, leg and butt exercises. After about 30 minutes of crunching and squatting I wanted to do something different. Then I spotted my roommates Body by Bethenny DVD!
The DVD has 3 portions, a 40 minute yoga segment, a 10 minute strength training, and a 5 minute booty blast! I started with the 10 minute strength training- it was so simple and Bethenny was complaining the entire time…my kinda girl ;). It was just my pace. It felt really good to do a little work with weights.
After the strength training I did the Booty Blast! It was ridiculously simple and quick- I did it twice!
Honestly, I’m not a fan of yoga- I don’t have the patience, or mindset for it, but I decided to give it a try. I did about 15 minutes of the yoga workout which was a nice opportunity to stretch out after everything I had already done.
And Ta-da! It’s not even 9:30am and I got in solid hour workout, and a new blog post!
So glad I got a workout in….I’m looking forward to enjoying this beautiful day! Have a wonderful Saturday everyone! XOXO
After about a 3 week hiatus, I am back on my gel manicures! I was missing my long lasting, shiny, strong manicures. After posting about the new Gelish Candy Land Collection I was dying to pick up their new yellow shade “Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss”.
I was so excited that there was one left…it appeared to be a pastel-yellow, but when I took a closer look, it was much more Frenchs Mustard-ish…with a hint of shimmer. I was so bummed, I didn’t end up getting it 🙁
This Sallys had a poor selection of Gelish colors in general, so I didn’t end up buying anything new. I got home and decided to work with colors I already had.
I used Rendezvous, a deep magenta/pink on all of my fingers except for my thumb, and ring finger…which were painted with Starburst.
UPDATE: (I like to note the longevity of my gel manicures) I tweeted a picture of my manicure on day 11…it was still holding up, but I am really ready for a change.
