Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection

Hi Angels,

It's been pretty quiet for me makeup wise this week.  Now you all know I am a makeup snob.  LOL.  That only pertains to quality.  In fact I used to live at Walgreen's before I had my babies.  Today I stopped by one of my other favorite stores.  

I was in Harmon  and look at what I saw.  One of my favorite brands just released some beautiful nudes.  Who, you ask ? Why Maybelline of course.
Look at this pic:

Excuse the flash!

There are some new color tattoos shown in the pic.  They are perfecting for layering or wearing alone on your eyelids. 

Below is the other display that shows some beautiful shadow sets, hi lighting blush, nude lipsticks as well as Master Glaze blush.    

Pictured next is the fabulous Jessica White beside some gorgeous  nude color elixirs. They are liquid colors.  They a pack a lot of color and moisture in that little tube.   She is wearing Charming Cocoa.  And if you're asking, yes I bought the last two.  It looks like my lips but better. And at six dollars a pop, I can't beat the price.

If anyone is looking for some high end nude alternatives, these are worth a try. 
So Angels, what do you think?  Did you see something you like?  Let us know if you do.  If you shop at Harmon, don't forget your Bed Bath and Beyond 20% off coupon.  

Until next time Angels

Bucket Bags for Spring

Hi Angels!!

I never thought I would say this, but I am currently loving bucket bags!  I saw the newest collection by Louis Vuitton, and I have to admit, they are beautiful.  I decided that I absolutely must add this style to my collection.  I really like how it can be worn very casually, with jeans and a tee, or dressed up for work.  I also don't mind that there is ample space for storage.

As always, I searched for a similar look, and was not disappointed by Vince Camuto.  I'm going to be picking up the Colby Drawstring bag this week for $198.   It is all perforated leather, and comes in an array of colors.  I am sticking with black, but the white and orange options would add a nice pop of color to a spring or summer outfit.  I also spotted the Janet bag, which is on sale for only $79.99 (for those not willing to make a large commitment to the style).  What do you think about this trend?

My Peter Pilotto Haul

Hi Angels,

I don't know what got into me today.  I woke up at 7:00 a.m. and drove to my local target. I was the second person there.  At 8:00 a.m. The doors opened and there were twenty women charging the collection.

Since there was already playful conversation outside, the mood was light.  Everyone was polite and only one ole lady was trying to troll carts while others were in the fitting room.

Here's my haul:
Cropped Cardigan: $39.99

Floral check sweatshirt: $29.99

Wowzer Red t-shirt: $19.99

All the items I tried on ran true to size.  No complaints from the other shoppers as well.  So what do you guys think?  Anyone else hitting the stores today?  Let us know what you think.

Until next time Angels

Zac Posen's Truly Zac Posen for David Bridal

Hello Angels,

If you've read our info, you'll know we love the world of Bridal.  In fact we have been instrumental in helping many brides create a custom look for their special day.  

I guess we are not alone in this for the darling of fashion is now designing bridal gowns.  That's right ladies, the man that has designed for Lena Dunham, Christina Hendricks and Rihanna now designs for you.  

On February 6th Truly Zac Posen will be available for all brides at David Bridal.  The sizes range from 0-26.  He has been known to style women with curves so this is not something new.  

“His new collection speaks to the beauty, grace and glamour that each woman deserves,” says Brian Beitler, a David’s Bridal Vice President tells the New York Daily News.  “Our consumers have been anxiously awaiting ... his standout designs.” 

Here is a sneak peek of some of the gowns featured on

Aren't they pretty?  For those of us that can't afford a $10,000 gown this is a welcome alternative.  

So what do we think?  Do we have any brides that are interested?  Let us know if  you decide to look at the collection and what your opinion of the dresses are.

Until next time Angels
