Revamping Old Clothes: Lace Patches + Sweatshirt

Sometimes I wish I could just buy everything that “strikes my fancy” when I go clothes shopping.  Especially now, because the styles are so versatile.  Stores are carrying several different styles & there seems to be something for everybody now!  Even more  important than personal, individual “i don’t care what you think, I like this” style – is the almighty PRICE.  Because of this, accessories seem to be more of a priority now – More bang for your buck.  ‘Tired of trying to mix and match your accessories?  ‘Broke, but wanna spruce up your wardrobe? ‘Got an old shirt with sentimental value, but you totally can’t wear it like it is?   Here’s an idea I happened upon that is quite eye...

Boo Boo Bling: Really Makes It “All Better!”

Boo Boo Bling: Really Makes It “All Better!”

Recently I was visiting someone’s home, and she lent me a band-aid.  My flip flops, as cute as they were, had rubbed a blister on my toe.  She reached in the cabinet, and said “What do you want – Toy Story or Cars?” I picked “Cars” (I think), and quickly put it on.  It certainly did the job, but I noticed it looked like a sticker!  My mom even asked me, “Why do you have a sticker on your foot?”  I realized I probably have had 2 fun band-aids in my life – a hot pink one in college, and this “Cars” themed bandage.  How fun was this?! I can see how these colorful cover-ups cheer up little ones after accidents. That “Cars” sticker reminded me of another band-aid incident that...

The Moustache Trend

The Moustache Trend

There seems to be a trend sweeping the world that is affecting men, women, AND children.  It’s the moustache trend.  Men are growing them and/or donning fake ones of all shapes & sizes.  Women & girls are wearing apparel & accessories that hail the almighty moustache & some are even wearing fake ones, too!  Tattoos, school supplies, bumper stickers, underwear….. you name it – a moustache is showing up as a prominent image in today’s culture & has been for a while – particularly, the handlebar moustache (like the Pringles’ guy…). Why am I blogging about this?  Why is it a trend?  Where did it start?  WHO CARES!  I noticed when I see a baby with a fake moustache pacifier and a onesie to match, a...

How to Apply Eye Shadow For Dummies

On May 21, 2010, Oprah Winfrey had Dolly Parton on her show for an interview.  When asked about her everyday makeup & if she would ever go out without any, Dolly replied, “Not unless my husband was dying, and I was having to run get help.”  “The only way I would be caught without makeup is if my radio fell in the bathtub while I was taking a bath and electrocuted me.” I can’t imagine taking lots of time to put on make-up, but make-up today has changed.  If you want to try something new – you can. Thanks to places like SEPHORA, it doesn’t take much time. (….Especially if you need to run for help after you’ve electrocuted your husband in the bathtub!) Trying something new in the make-up realm can be scary –...
