This post is dedicated to my fashionable niece, Sadie. Now, I must forewarn everyone that Sadie is the cutest little girl you will ever see in your life so don't be jealous of me :) I could definitely post 800,000 pictures of all the adorable outfits my sister-in-law, Stephanie, has put Sadie in but to spare everyone from too much of my gushing I've chosen the outfits that I have chosen for Sadie (if you would like to see more of Sadie visit Steph's blog at

These first pictures are my animal-print influence on Sadie when she was about 3 months old.
It just so happened that day when I went over to visit Sadie that I was wearing leopard print TOO! Who woulda thought?! I guess it's not that surprising, animal print most likely makes an appearance once a week on me.
What a cutie!
Here's another outfit I got her that we decided to put on and snap some photos while we were all in the leopard mood...although, I'm always in the leopard mood!
Here is Sadie at almost 2-years-old in an adorable shirt that I got her for Christmas. She's such a great model! I remember sporting similar scotty-dog shirts, skirts, hair bows, ect when I was young too so when I saw this in Target I had to get it for her.
Sadie is wearing the red ruby slippers that I got her on Christmas, SO adorable! Honestly, I wish they made those in my size, I would still wear them :) ...actually now that I think about it, the grown up version of those would be some hot red sparkly pumps...I'll have to put those on my to-do list.

That's all for now of Sadie. I'm sure she'll make an appearance more as a little fashionista on my blog. Especially now that she's getting older and able to make choices of her own, she's a smart little one so I imagine she will put together some great outfits herself.

Pink Friday!

It's a pink day today with my new special edition Pink Friday Mac lipstick by Nicki Minaj. Seen here is Nicki Minaj's latest album cover titled "Pink Friday" where, conveniently enough, she models her own perfectly pink lipstick she designed with Mac.
A few months ago this lip color went on sale on Mac's website only for Black Friday (makes sense now, huh?). Mac sold out of this hot color very quickly (something like before 11AM) so luckily they made it available for purchase every Friday for the 4 weeks after Thanksgiving. Since it was so limited I knew I had to have one of my own.  And here is my Pink Friday on this beautiful Friday afternoon:
The color is a very fun matte bubblegum pink. I must say it's not a lipstick for everyday wear, but it is HOT. It's so vibrant that it's almost cartoonish so I felt the need to tone it down with a tinted lip gloss, as seen below.
I also did a fun purple eye with this lip color that was inspired by the Barbie's of my childhood like such:
Barbie always had fun bright colored eyeshadow in blue, pink, purple, ect, that girl had some style! I seemed to remember this morning a particular pink clad doll with purple done up eyes that inspired me at my makeup vanity when thinking about my new Pink Friday lipstick. So here's to you Barbie!
I hope you enjoyed this very pink post and all have a happy Friday and fabulous weekend!

New Year and New Things!

Welcome to 2011 all! I don't know about your plans but I plan for this year to be a HUGE year for me. It's been a bit of a rough first week for me filled with stressful life related things but I've spent the weekend relaxing and re-prioritizing in order to accomplish my ultimate goals, i.e. makeup.
SO, what's new? Firstly, I would like to introduce these little babies (caution, please ignore my gross cankles, yeah I know it's the new year, I will be getting on the workouts asap):

Please welcome my newest addition, the Ironstone Suede Air Zelo Cole Haan ballet flats! Wow. That was quite a mouthful, which is well deserved for all these have to offer (not to mention the arm and leg they cost). Essentially, they are adorably cute ballet flats that are stylish with any outfit, casual or dressy, PLUS they offer Nike Air support making them the WORLD'S MOST COMFORTABLE *CUTE* SHOES! I decided to make the investment since I begain working in retail (all of 1 week ago) because after my first day of working in unsupportive flats I came home and shed tears over my tattered feet for hours. These shoes have definitely changed my feet(s) lives and they will forever yearn for more Cole Haan to comfort them.

Next new item on the agenda is my semi-new eye gear. Today was a beautiful and bright day so I sported these lovely Betsy Johnson sunglasses that my mom got me a few months ago.
She always seems to be able to find great deals on my favorite Betsy Johnson gems and these were an ultimate find! There's a really unique floral pattern on the sides which adds to all my reasons to love them. I also wore my Betsy Johnson elephante necklace that seems to be popular among the masses because it's one of my most complimented jewelry items. Unfortunately, it was cold and windy out so it's hiding under my jacket but I will have to post a picture of it soon for all to marvel at it's glory.

Last but most certainly not least is my new business cards! May I present the result of my mother and I's hard work...
My mom is not only wonderful but extremely talented in all things computers. Over Christmas we designed these from my mental picture. I love them because they're unique AND original AND bedazzled due to my free time today. We put a lot of work into these and I feel they rightfully represent me and my business so they will definitely be doing their job well.

Well that's all for today, new shoes, new shades, and a new business. No big deal. Just a day in the life :)
