OPI + Pirates of the Caribbean=LOVE

Inspired by the highly anticipated Disney movie "Pirates of the Carribbean: On Stranger Tides," the nail booty is bursting with luscious colored nail polishes that highlight the wild escapades of stars Johnny Depp and Penélope Cruz.

The collection includes six limited-edition nail polishes, each with a quirky, clever name. The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' collection ($8.50 each) will be available beginning in May at Dillard's, JCPenney,Regis and ULTA.


Ummm….you have something on your lips…


The newest fad to hit the streets are temporary lip tattoos. Now you too can sport polka dot, fishnet, or bedazzled lip. By Violent Tattoos. $14.95 gets you 3 applications.

I think I’ll pass.


You can’t judge a book by it’s cover


The newest fashion must have is the book clutch bag. Adorable clutch purses designed to look like classic books. Natalie Portman was seen carrying a Lolita clutch-bag by Olympia Le-Tan at the premiere of Black Swan. Olympia Le-Tan, a newly-established French designer, designs beautiful box-bags made to look like famous novels. Ms. Le-Tan’s bags are limited numbered editions so they go quickly. You can oew one for only 1090 euros ($1568.00 US)


If you looking for something a bit more affordable…Kate Spade has also entered the arena with some very cute clutches of her own.

I love The Great Gatsby. These can be purchased at Saks 5th Ave for a more modest $325.
If you crafty, has a wonderful tutorial on how to make your own. I’m going to try it and I’ll post my results when I’m finished.




I just finished Hexed, a 4 story anthology written by some of the top urban fantasy writers of the genre, over the weekend. All I will say is if you a Ilona Andrews fan like me, you MUST get this book. MUST!! Set to release June 7th. My review will be coming soon to Smexy Books.


How Cute are THESE????

Gwen Stefani has collaborated with Monster to make some of the CUTEST earbuds EVAH! The Harajuku Lovers Headphones. There are three different sets, which feature the iconic dolls that can be seen on Gwen Stefani’s line of perfumes. Each pair of headphones is made to be tangle-free and comes with interchangeable earbuds.  The Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style In-Ear Headphones (seen above) feature five different cute doll faces that can be switched up and heart shapes printed on the earbuds. They come in adorable packaging with a compact case

Amazon was feeling left out….:(


Amazon launched a new site May 4th called- Myhabit. Already besieged by he endless emails from Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, and Ideeli promising the holy grail of fashion at a low price Amazon will now be vying for our attention get even further lost in the world wide web of reduced-price clothing. I do like that they're offering free shipping and free returns, and have 800 designers at the ready to make and ship them items for the flash sales. The site is very modern in it’s design and free of random annoying clutter. Looks to be a winner.
