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…

December 23, 2008

I love driving around the beach looking at Christmas lights and decorations — it’s one of the best parts of the holidays! This house in Alys Beach is so perfectly wrapped with its bright red bow, you can’t help but stop and admire it.…

Sparkly Jewels!

August 26, 2008

Heavy jewelry is on its way in this fall as tons of chunky necklaces, bracelets and earrings pop up with supersize gems in a rainbow of colors. Sorrelli is, of course, the local favorite with full lines based on cute color collections like the pretty pink Rosy Cheeks, earth tone Cherokee Sunset, silvery Bedazzled and yellow Lemon Drop. These will definitely lighten your change purse,…

Back to Black

August 23, 2008

You know how the designer lines at Target are kind of hit or miss? Well, the Botkier line there now is just that. There are a few great bags and a few……well, not so much. My favorite and perfect pick to carry into fall is the Satchel in black. It goes for $49.99 and is roomy enough for all your essentials without feeling like an…

Get Your ‘Hills’ Kicks

August 20, 2008

Attention LC addicts! If you find yourselves glued to the tube like me every time The Hills is on to see what Lauren Conrad wears next, then listen up — I found her tennis shoes (or at least some pretty close look-a-likes). LC was out in Hollywood getting a little exercise with her roomie ‘Lo’ and was sporting a fresh pair of Asics not too…

Funky Blue

August 15, 2008

I stopped by The Blue Giraffe in Blue Mountain Beach yesterday after hearing about their new location in Watercolor and great things about their eclectic collections of jewelry, art, and home décor and found myself wanting to take home one of everything! Well, almost. This fun little shop is overflowing with beachy finds, and while that isn’t really my style I still found myself coveting…

Wake Up with PJ’s

August 14, 2008

PJ’s in Redfish Village is fast becoming part of my daily routine for leaving zombie mode behind in the morning. I’m a big fan of frozen coffees and their Velvet Ices are ridiculously good. They have freshly blended Mocha, Vanilla or Chai, so I like to rotate a different one every time for a little variety. Try a medium for $3.60. As if the logo…

Sonya Renee Mini Stamped Necklace & Lucky Charms

August 13, 2008

After seeing several of her pieces on celebrities like Rachel Bilson and Jessica Alba, I tracked down Sonya Renee’s website to see just what I thought of the necklaces and earrings that were making this Dallas jewelry designer a big name. I immediately wanted to buy almost everything on the site and, surpisingly, most of the pieces are very budget friendly. I found these cool…
