All Wrapped Up

The scarf is a limitless accessory! There are a zillion to choose from in multiple colors, textures, prints, and prices, it’s enough to make a girl’s head spin or have her moving into the poor house. But we all have our go-to scarf. My fav the Tricky Threads black and white peace sign print, it’s super cute and versatile, plus it was so reasonable. I love it! It’s been seen on celebrities like the Olsen twins and Kris Jenner; it was even featured on Beverly Hills 90210.

My only problem is that I always wear it the same way. I desperately need to breathe some new life into my scarf routine. Luckily there is help for the scarf challenged. I found this video on, check it out.

Holy Lips!!!!

Ok, does big bold lip color freak anyone else out? I love the way red or even plum lip color looks on other people, but I am terrified to try this trend myself. I guess my fear steams from not really knowing how to pull it off and not look like a clown. Luckily there is help for the lipstick challenged.

I found tips on the dos and don’ts of dark lipstick on In a nutshell it is about keeping it simple. If you are going to go with a bold lip make that the focal point, keep the eyes and cheeks subtle. Pulling back your hair into a ponytail or a chignon will also add to the drama of this bold look. Pairing bold brows with a plum lipstick is also another way to work this look. If you have a darker skin tone going super dark is definitely a do. Another trick is to pair a stained lip with tons of black mascara. Using your finger to apply the lipstick will give you this effect.

As for what you want to avoid, lining the lips with dark lip liner, overdoing all your make-up, going Goth with black lips and of course the dreaded lipstick on the teeth. To avoid the dark ring around the lips, use a q-tip in translucent powder to line the lips and keep dark shades in place. Lipstick on teeth? Try a little Vaseline on your teeth.

After learning how to work the dark lipstick look I am ready to jump right in. So what do you say girls, you want to join me?

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells...

Thanksgiving is upon us and that means that the holidays are around the corner. One month away, crazy! Knowing that the economy is in shambles makes it hard to be in the holiday spirit for most and gifting this season even harder. We have created some gift themes that will help save a buck or two and make gifting fun again this year.

Finally, Treat Your Feet. I think this is the best deal we are offering! Flex Flops are the ultimate pedicure essential. The flip flops are durable enough to run some errands after a fresh coat of polish but then fold up so you can keep them in the car when not in use.

Step Into Fall

It’s November in Arizona and the temperature has finally dropped to something resembling fall so let’s take a look at our favorite fall fashions. From fall florals and plaids to slouchy trousers and long dresses, everything this fall is sure to impress.

Don’t be prude with patterns this fall, express yourself in vibrant florals and pulled together plaids. Spring’s much loved trend has carried over to fall and we are seeing flowers bloom on dresses, tops and coats. Pair that floral dress with tights and booties and you ready for a night on the town. Plaids are coming right off the London runway so call out your inner Scotsman and pull out the plaid. We love Elizabeth & James "Starr" plaid cotton skirt paired with a fitted blazer for a breezy fall day.

Another fall must is the jean version of the slouchy trouser and the floor-grazing dress. Steal your boyfriend’s jeans because this fall fashion is being sported by our favorite celebrity trendsetters from Kate Beckinsale to Jennifer Aniston. Our favorite is Prps Ripped Boyfriend Jean paired with your sexiest stilettos to complete the look. Bringing the maxi dress into fall, the floor length gown is perfect for this year’s social season. Make a statement in an autumnal hue, like gold or rust, or go bold in blues and greens.

Enjoy the fall fashions while you can because we’ll be back to tank tops and flip flops soon enough!
