My cute hair stylist, Jessica, told me about this mascara! It is currently at Costco, sold in a pack of three. Oh my gosh. I have been using the $29 Lancome Definicils for over 10 years now and this ECLIPSES any mascara I have tried. Thanks Jessica, I love it!
My favorite summer book! It is set in the majestical city, Paris. The street names are familiar; the subject is historically fascinating. You will absolutely love it. I could not put it down. I highly recommend it.
I decided to throw a little party this weekend--just for fun, to celebrate Spring's tardy arrival in Utah. It was really easy, even with a brand new baby, I just threw it together. What do you think?
JUST KIDDING. You weren't invited to the party because there really never was one! BUT I did come across this party planner's website and I think this is the best fashion for a party table I have ever seen! Check out her site: www.amyatlas.com. Click on the eye candy link!
friends have recently asked me where they can find a cute handbag for spring without paying designer prices. there are definitely some great options. I tend to pick tote bags that provide space for all the necessities! one of my favorite looks is a monochromatic outfit with a solid-colored leather tote bag. it doesn't matter what you wear . . . your bag becomes the focus.
here are a few affordable options:
1) Banana Republic's Large Leather Tote $98 in PLUM --
2) Dooney & Bourke's Large Zipper Pocket Sac $265 in ORANGE -- a personal favorite! I have two and I LOVE the gold hardware and very durable leather. Comes in a variety of colors!
3) J. Crew's Bisbee Satchel $268 in SUMMER HYACINTH-- also available in tawny brown & jalapeno
My two darling friends, Emi Edgley and Arlene Lauper, both encouraged me to enter one of my dress designs in Shabby Apple's "Dare to Design" dress contest! I did it .. and found out just yesterday that my design -The Kate Dress- made the top 15 dress designs. Now I must garner enough votes to see through to dress production! If you get a moment, log on to Shabby Apple's Blog, then go to Comments. To vote, you must post a comment and specify #14. All it needs is a #14 for it to count as a vote for my dress design. Voting goes until November 30th. Thank you for your support!
