Upstate and what? Where you been woman? I know, I know, its been a while. Summer is a sloooow fashion season and my life has recently become far more hectic with the addition of a 2nd job but I'm still here and will do my best to keep you in the loop of all things cool, cute and fashionable, I promise.
I have much to share. Part 1) comes with the humble admission that on rare occasions, I've been known to run a quick errand at WalMart, solely because its convenient to work and when you have two jobs and two kids, convenience is key. Anyway, I stumbled upon the super fun and not terribly inexpensive boutique line of makeup: Hard Candy on my last stealth visit. You might think, whatever, the stuff is for teenagers, not for me, as the colors are pretty bold and there is more than a little glitter going on. That said, we all need a little glitter once in a while and I grabbed a great nude lipgloss and purple mascara (every redhead's secret weapon) for $6 each. Not bad at all.
Part 2) I just discovered a great blog The Art of Accessories. Its one woman's tutorial on how to accessorize with bags, jewelry and well... accessories. She's got a new post every day (!!)) as well as a very cute "monday manicure" section where she reviews a different polish color every Monday... gives it a test run for you. A fresh perspective AND an impressive Chuck Taylor collection, what's not to love!??
