Pretty little things

I am having another leisurely day today, just sitting on the couch drinking my iced coffee, blogging, reading mags and such. I saw that this month’s Lucky has a ring just like one I just purchased  a month ago in the “Our Obsessions” section. I have to agree, I am obsessed with this ring! And, I love that I am on the cutting edge. It makes me happy happy.

I got mine at Vis-A-Vis in Nantucket for a mere $40! Its such a delicate yet stunning little number.  The only in Lucky is very similar and has a more hammered look to it, but is equally feminine and sweet. Its  by Robindira Unsworth for $100 if you want to snag yourself one! (click here to go to the site).

Vis-A-Vis doesn’t have my ring on the site, but they have SHA-MAZING jewelry, and tons of gorgeous vintage pieces. If you are an accessory fanatic like moi, you must pay this site a visit (click here to browse).

I succumbed…

Yep, it’s true. I am wearing jeggings. I tried to shun this trend but it took over me. And might I say, they are effing comfortable!

Don’t get it twisted though, I do not have Jegging bum ( the denim cousin of Legging bum). Long cardi and flats make this office appropriate (at least ad agency appropriate). The business is covered, and for now, we can all live happily in elastic waistband pants land.

Spring-y thingies

This 60 degree weather today has me obsessing over spring shopping, spring colors, warm weather, fun makeup and cocktails al fresco!  I am technically not supposed to be shopping, so I web window shopped tonight. Here’s the outfit I came up with – a smattering of adorable season appropriate items from my fave sites:

Aren’t these items TDF? Oh how I want thee.  I even have a makeup look I would wear. Dewy, fresh and light of course. Given that I am not allowed to shop if  I am ever going to get a beautiful house on the ocean someday, I will refrain from pulling the trigger on these gorgeous pieces. A  gal can dream though, right?

Lincoln Park 2.0

In the vein of Amazon – if you like this you’d love…..(the suspense is killing you, isnt it)…. OPI Black Cherry Chutney!

I was at the cutest nail place ever last night – MiniLuxe on Newbury St. in Boston (more on this later) and as I was meandering around Lincoln Park the woman about to do my nails was extremely aggressively pushing me toward the Black Cherry Chutney. I was really wondering what her deal was and why she wanted me to get it so bad.  It was quite strange really. But, I said whatever, it was a free mani, make this cute yet aggressive little lady happy and try it out.

Well, now I know why she was pushing me so hard. She really did have my best interests at heart. ITS THE BEST! Its one of those colors that has kind of a shiny sheen in the bottle, which I ALWAYS shy away from. This gal knew her stuff.  OPI describes it as a black/red but it does come out deep purple-y/burgundy and has that really dark effect. What I didnt realize is that sheen doesnt make it look tacky – it makes it look extra-laquered once you layer on the top coat. GENIUS!  She told me after my nails were done that most gals who used to go Lincoln Park go Black Cherry Chutney. DUH…why didnt you tell me that when you were creepily insisting I use it?

In any event, she was a mastermind of the mani and my nails look more than fab. If you like Lincoln Park this is a guaranteed winner.  And if you are of the home manicure persuasion, you can get this at Amazon new for $5.25. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Sophia Loren was such a hotsie in her day.  And she’s still holding it down at 76 years old! Seriously, what a stunner! Good genes yes, but I bet she takes spectacular care of herself. She’s an original gorgeous gal (hence the O.G.G., not to be confused with an O.G., which is an original gangster says Dr. Dre). Lets bask in her gorgeousness and be inspired!
