Lashed

4 Jul

I was traipsing around Target the other day and stumbled upon these beauties:

 
I don’t know who Vegas Nay is, but her Grand Glamor eyelashes are exquisite. The box says “lightweight” but they did feel a little heavy after the initial application. 

I felt so sultry with them on, lol. I love the multiple layer effect. 

  

  

 

Fashion=Art

24 Jun

I had a fabulous day at the IMA. I took my boys to see the awesome  Dream Cars exhibit.  One of the other exhibits I visited was couture fashion.  Here is a peek of what I saw! 

  
  
 

The layout was very sleek and sophisticated. 

 
Although most of the pieces were from yesteryear, it was exquisite and I would wear much of what I saw. 

 
Fashion is definitely a work of art! 

  

Yes to the dress! 

  

And these as well…

 
Adorable print in the blue.  

Pas De Deux

8 Jun

I have my eye on two things at the moment, both so pretty and girly. The first is a pair of pale pink heels with an oversized bow by Jeffrey Campbell. I really, really like these! 

  
  
This is known as a bum” bag in Great Britain aka a fanny pack in America. I know that they might not be in style, but this one is so stylish. The sequins glam it up a notch. Plus, these bags are totally convenient. 

  
What’s on your most wanted list? Do tell! 

Wanted: Cute, Comfy Shoes

4 Jun

I have many pairs of shoes, but not of all types. I have lots of heels, sandals, and tennis shoes. However, I recently noticed that I only have one pair of casual flats! 

Don’t get me wrong-love my high heels, but even I must admit that they are not always practical. Especially the older I get. Also, I don’t like walking in them on uneven surfaces because it wears them down faster.  When I go to work in the mornings, I put my heels in my bag and put them on in the building to avoid walking in them on the rough parking lot. 

So it looks like I’ll be investing in some casual flats in the near future! 

Haute Mama

5 May

It’s getting hot outside! I thought I’d take my kids out of their usual element to get some work down. Of course I couldn’t resist snapping a few pics. 

   
I’ve worn this skirt several times before and I love it. It’s such a classic look. I paired it with a simple, white short sleeve button up, and camel colored sandals.

Viva Las Vegas

4 May

Hey dolls, I spent the weekend in Las Vegas to partake in the fight and all of its festivities. We stayed at the colossal MGM Grand. It was my first time visiting Vegas but I doubt my last.   It was so many people from all over the world in town for the slug fest. I was quite overwhelmed by the masses. Next time I go I’ll be sure to avoid any major event.    

 We still managed to enjoy ourselves and went sight seeing, shopping, and dining before viewing the long awaited match between “Pay”weather as I like to call him and Pacman. 

   
              The food was yummy and plentiful.

It was definitely a once and a lifetime event.  

  

  

  

  

  

  

Fight night

  

  

 My pants drew a lot of attention 😳. But the weather was so hot that open legs were very welcoming.

After a long weekend, we made it safely back home. 

Wax On, Wax Off

30 Apr

Today I got my first ever Brazilian wax! I read a few articles online about the procedure so I had an idea of what to expect. Some people thought it was painless while others were appalled with the process.

I must admit that I was on the appalled end of the spectrum, lol. But I do have a very low tolerance for pain so it doesn’t take much to get me riled up.

Brittany over at My Little Secret Waxing Boutique did a great job assuaging my fears. She talked me through the process which helped.

However, I would be lying if I said it didn’t hurt. It felt like I was being tortured with each rip of the muslin cloth squares that removed the ultra hot wax. 

I can hardly believe people get this done on a regular basis because I was near tears, lol. It doesn’t take very long but during the actual waxing, it feels like a million years. 

The end result was a soft, smooth surface, though I believe I can achieve the same result in another less painful manner!
