Zombies, Lmfao, and honey badgers OH MY!

Monday, October 31, 2011

First off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween weekend, filled with ghouls, thrills and fun! This year I had to take it easy because I injured myself and have a boot on my foot and crutches as my accessory BUT I made it work!

While I couldn't be more elaborate with my costume, my boyfriend knew exactly what he wanted to be and I took the reigns on styling his look!

Check out this years funky costumes, can you guess what we were?
My babe was the guys from LMFAO while a I was a little elephant, my favorite animal!

We took it easy going to a house party with lots of friends. One of my best friends showed up as the awesome Honey Badger and of course some of our friends rocked the zombie look!

This year I wasn't able to go all out but the last two years were definitely my favorite costumes! Here's a look back on Miss J. Cookie and I'm on a boat! 

Hope everyone has a great Halloween! 

Sarasota Fashion Week

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

The first ever Sarasota Fashion Week kicked off yesterday as volunteers, designers, press and guests mingled the night away. While tonight was the sponsorship appreciation party, tomorrow is the beginning of four days filled with runways, models, and the latest fashions. 
As a volunteer I am thrilled to be apart of this exciting time for Sarasota's up and coming fashion scene. 

The Style Swap, which is tomorrow from 9a-1p, is the main event I will be volunteering for, as I am so excited to be apart of it!  It's a great way to be eco friendly and still get some really cute pieces to spice up your wardrobe. There will be DIY workshops on how to turn a t-shirt into a necklace, purse or scarf, the actual swap, where all swapaholics discover new, fabulous finds, and last but certainly not least, a style showcase where local fashion influencers will show off outfits created right there at the swap! So bring out your gently used clothes, jewelry, shoes, etc and swap your hearts out.

Review of Sally Hansen's Salon Effects: Kitty Kitty

Thursday, October 13, 2011

As I have confessed, I have a slight obsession with all things leopard. I've kept it hush hush for the most part, but this fall the trend has exploded and so has my collection of pieces! About two weeks ago I even participated in the newest bloggers do it better assignment, Animal Instincts, (my favorite one yet), showing my wild side in all things leopard print. 

I have been debating on buying the stick on nail strips but I couldn't resist any longer. I recently purchased the fun nail polish strips and in 10 minutes the look was complete. 
Sorry for the backwardness, I took it with Photo booth :)
The pack comes with 16 strips in two sealed cases, so I figured ok, one for each finger including the thumb would leave me with 6 left over BUT, I tried to carefully file off the excess so I could use the other side for my other hand (if you have longer finger nails it might not work, but I keep them pretty short so it was perfect!). I alternated, right finger, left finger, and so on.

**I am right handed so I knew it would be easy to do my left hand, that's
why I suggest starting with your dominant hand, in case you need help
putting the pieces on.

**Sometimes it's not the same fit so you will have to use another strip,
 but I only had that problem once. 

I have only had them on for a day but they have held up well and look awesome! I'm loving this manicured look. 

The patterns and colors they have are SO fun and they even have a halloween collection now. The best part, they're immediately dry! 
So if you're looking for a great alternative to dress up your nails, these polish strips are great. For 10$ a pack, I've got two manicures in 1! And while some people might not be able to use the strip for two nails, you still have a super cute look!

For more information on how to apply watch the tutorial below. 

Enjoy! xx

You’ve been busy little bloggers—some trend reporting here, a little schmoozing backstage at Salvatore Ferragamo there, and a lot of DIYing. You’re veritable blogging animals, with fabulously-spotted hides to match! Yeah, the animal trend—prints, furs, style stalking, what have you—with this round of posts, consider it done. And well-done, I might add.

Animal Instincts: Meow

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

So I kind of have a secret obsession with leopard print. When I found out the new Bloggers Do It Better challenge was titled "Animal Instincts"I literally eeeeeee'ed with excitement. 

With the animal prints being so popular this fall, I have made a few purchases that make me oh so happy. A few months ago, while writing my trend post, The Cat's Meow, I found the "leopard on me" top from ModCloth, and I HAD to have it. After patiently waiting for it to become available again, I snatched it up at the end of September. September 27th, the day that little package arrived on my doorstep, was one happy day for me! The next morning I woke up to a new BDIB email announcing the new assignment and I was SO excited to participate! It was meant to be :) 

So without further adieu, meet the animal in me. 
Two days after the new BDIB I found this precious little skirt with leopard bows and wallah! I had my outfit. While it's a little crazy for me, there is just something about this outfit that makes me feel good! It's bringing out my inner feistiness that I normally don't show!
Needless to say, I really do love leopard print. I have a few pieces that just spice up an outfit. 

And I just had to include my little precious bug, Tika because like mother like daughter, she loves leopard too ♥
