Trend: two finger rings

Ever since I saw Lauren Conrad sport a double finger nameplate ring on The Hills last year I wanted one for myself.  Celebrities are even rockin the 3 or 4 finger rings!

I didn't want a personalized ring with my name on it so I opted for this beauty.  I adorn the Erica Anenberg Bow Twosome Ring almost every day.  I love it and it's my favorite way to embellish my outfit.

me lucky charms

Over the weekend the huz and I did a little shopping at Nordstrom Rack and I found a huge selection of Betsey Johnson jewelry.  I snagged this necklace for $16.97.  The original price tag was $42.   It has two charms.  One is a bow and the other is a pump.  I love cute small delicate charm necklaces!

Chocolate 'do

Ciao bellas!  Today I sat in the salon for two hours & got my hair done!  I had it colored a shade of black called chocolate.  I also had it deep conditioned and had my stylist take off two inches.  My hair feels so healthy now!  It was so dry & I had a ton of split ends!  Now my hair is shiny & as smooth as silk.  It feels faaabulous.  Click on the pics to make them bigger. :)

Here are a few pics of my new 'do.

Hello hotties! I just wanted to pop into blogger & post a few magazine scans. Who doesn’t love to flip through magazines to look at fashion-inspiring spreads?

Do you like the magazine scan posts? Should I do more in the future?

Lust list

What a day! Twitter was down this morning for about 4 hours which means I would've been better off staying in bed all day since nothing else matters jk jk *.~
After reading emails, looking at friend's pictures on Facebook & refreshing Twitter a hundred times I was finally able to catch up on blogger. Every time I read posts from the beauty bloggers I follow I have a post-it note as long as my forearm of things I lust after.

Here are a few items on my lust list.

  • A new digicam. I'm not sure which model I want yet. I'll need to do more research but I think I'd like something in the Nikon Coolpix range. 12.0+ mpx is preferred. (my strong argument point for the hubz will be "I need a good digicam to pick up all the adorable moments our future kids have as babies!")
  • Japanese cosmetics: Shiseido Majolica Majorca, Lunasol by Kanebo & Shu Uemura are the three brands I'm lusting to try. Their products look so fab. x3
  • A subscription to Japanese fashion magazines. The magazines I'm interested in are harajuku, kawaii, & manga type fashion mags. The fashion world in Japan is completely different and I love flipping through pictures for inspiration. Here are a few magazine scans from Eki's blog. Check it out. She's so cute!

  • So what are you pining after?

      I'm turning a speedy 30

      I'm getting old. I'm turning 29 in August and this makes me sad. I'm loving my 20's! I'm not ready yet! I decided to draw up a wishlist of items I would like to receive for my birthday. It sounds completely selfish and it is but this would truly make me a happy woman who will be one year away from turning 30! Here is a photo of Audrey Hepburn sporting a Louis Vuitton Speedy 30.
      Ok scratch that, I only have one item on my wish list and I truly believe this item will make me look younger than 29. ;) This is the Speedy 30 from the Damier collection in Azur. I might want the Speedy 25 since the 30 might be too big for me but it's only a difference of $40. I'll just have to take a trip to Neiman Marcus to see which size suits me better. I prefer the pattern of the Damier collection rather than the classic LV design because it's not so in-your-face look at my Louis. Yup, so this is all I want for my birthday. This and a few cupcakes from Cupcakes Actually (my favorite store ever). It's beautiful, no?

      Studded handbags

      Here is Mary-Kate Olsen (lookin' like she crawled out of a dumpster again) rockin the beloved Alexander Wang Coco Duffel. {le sigh} It's beautiful. It's not completely out of my price range :rolls eyes: however it is sold out on every online shop. (This highly sought after handbag retails for $850!)
      An alternative would be this gorgeous piece right here. I present to you the Studded Satchel by Tory Burch for a mere $595. :) I love it however I will not be hauling it anytime soon.

      I did manage to find this beauty and the price didn't look too bad either! Behold, the Shawna handbag from Bakers. I purchased this for $69.95 and to my dismay I looked at the website today and it's on sale for $49.99. Don't you hate when that happens?! I haven't even used this purse yet! Regardless I'm still happy I hauled it and I just wanted to share that with my lovely readers. :)

      Forever haulin

      My package from Forever 21 arrived today! I bought two maxi dresses, two short strapless floral dresses ($12), a Hello Kitty tee & chandelier earrings. I love maxi dresses however I'm only 5'0" so I don't buy too many. These maxi dresses were $22 each and if I choose to get them hemmed I'll have to pay half of what the dress cost just to get them hemmed. I think I'll just shop for new comfortable wedges that'll add on 3-4". OR I could just learn how to hem them myself since every singe pair of pants I buy needs a trip to the taylor. Meh. I'll just buy the wedges :D

      Hope you have a good rest of the week! Friday's almost here!
