February 3, 2009

It’s February (already) and Valentine’s day is a short time away, so you might as well get in the spirit and treat yourself to a few chocolate-themed beauty goodies. I wouldn’t mind using some to add a little color to my face or smack to my lips and the best part is … these chocolate delights won’t go straight to your hips.Photo: InStyle view full…

To Dye For

January 20, 2009

It’s another cold day at the beach, so I’m trying to survive by focusing on the warm weather and sunshine coming this way soon. I love this dress on Ashley Tisdale. Her Gypsy 05 tie-dye would be perfect as a beach cover-up or even better dressed up for some shopping or lunch out. You can choose from a few colors at Madison boutique, but I’m…

Short Hair Do

I’m not sure I’d ever have the guts to chop my hair off, but if I did, I think I’d want it to look a little something like Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland. It has just enough texture and a great swoop in front. Maybe I could sport that after all! view full post »…

Redfish Village After Hours

January 19, 2009

This month’s Walton Area Chamber After Hours was at Redfish Village and even though it was a cold night, there was a nice crowd there to network, sip wine and check out the Village. Aside from the main tent set up on the lawn, there were 3 condos open for viewing with wine sampling in each. The Village Boutique and The Aesthetic Clinique had their…

New York Lights

January 3, 2009

One of my favorite blogs is The Weblicist of Manhattan. All I have to do is flip through all the great pictures and feel like I’m there – hanging out in the city that never sleeps. The photos are amazing with so many colors and cool perspectives — I can’t get enough! One of my resolutions for 2009 is to try to travel more often…

Happy New Year!

January 1, 2009

It’s 2009!! Happy New Year!!! Our New Year’s Eve celebrations were so much fun, but made for a very late night. There are a few movies I’ve been waiting to see and haven’t had time to squeeze them in. I think today might be perfect for doing a double feature! I wanna see Marley & Me (like every other dog owner) and either Benjamin Button…

Olivia Palermo Has Perfect Hair

December 30, 2008

If you watched the premiere of The City last night on MTV, I’m sure you noticed the perfection that was Olivia Palermo’s hair. There was not one strand out of place and her version of Whitney’s side twists is a little more put together. Just buy a pack of those little butterfly clips, part your hair in the middle, curl repeatedly and pin back a…

Great Hair @ Warren Tricomi

If only there was a Warren Tricomi Salon in this corner of the world! I would be that much closer to great hair like LC and Amanda Bynes. The Daily 10 had a cool segment today about the latest in hair extensions that certain unnamed celebrities (ahem) take full advantage of. The experts at WT are using surgical tape to sandwich the extensions between two…
