Betsey Johnson Sandals

Posted in Shoes on May 31, 2008 by au13

Saw them while browsing at Victoria’s Secret online store.  Cutest thing for summer however Im scared of the heels. I am so careless and such a klutz and I will surely die in these shoes (or probably permanently break my ankles) . Haha.  I love both colors and Im sure they will look great with dresses and jeans.


Patchwork is Back

Coach, who are you kidding? This is the same denim patchwork bag from last season. Same pattern but you just made it diagonal! But this is not the worst. Check out the Burberry bag with its checkered pattern made into diagonal patchwork! Its hideous!

Time to change brushes! I bought these brushes on sale in Harmon. Its 50% off the original price. I got the ones that I need. Foundation brushes (liquid and powder), concealer, blush and eyeshadow brushes. Total cost is about$30.  The brushes are very soft and  I love the red handles. And the old ones are going to be recycled as detailing brushes for my husband’s car.

Check out this new exercise gadgets from . I saw it from the infomercials and it caught my attention. This one is actually for your breasts, ladies. It firms and lifts and increases the cup size! The commercial looked very funny coz you see breasts twitching with every push and pull of the gadget. Im not sure if im buying this. Im the laziest person on earth and I dont want to turn my boobs into a lump of muscle.


Lucky Shopping Manual

Posted in Books on May 29, 2008 by au13

There was this funny moment that happened at the counter of Barnes and Nobles. I bought two books after an hour of waiting for my husband who was browsing in Sears (god i hate to be stading in those aisles filled with tools). The first book I bought was The Finish Rich Workbook by David Bach. Its a financial plan to get out of debt and plan for a richer future. Sounds good right? Definitely a beneficial book that I could learn a lot from. The irony of that moment though is when lady scanned the next book. Which is the shopping manual by Lucky Magazine. Haha. Its a actually a cool book, states the obvious what and what not to wear. But it also gives cool ideas on which clothing matches, and accessories and all other good stuff. It helps you to build that closet of only the things you need and actually wear. None of those impulse buying of things that are cute but you’d never wear. Its easy to read coz its mostly pictures. Lol and obviously it was the first book Ive read versus the financial book 😛

But ill keep it for my collection just in case they come out with more in the future. Watch out bonus gifts! youre mine!haha!

Destination Shirts

Posted in Clothing on May 29, 2008 by au13

Dont get me wrong, not because its branded makes it my favorite. I also love the non branded shirts especially the Destination Shirts. Im not talking about the oversized shirts that has one size fits all! Souvenir shirts have definitely caught up with fashion Im talking about the lightweight tees, that has the comfiest and softest feel and its 3 for $15 bucks and feels like the Roxy shirts. I love wearing my Miami shirts here in NY. Reminds me of the good times my husband and I had during our vacation. I have several shirts from Virginia Beach and Maryland and some other states. Some of them are cool enough to wear casually with jeans and the older ones I just wear at home.
