beauty equations

A day of beauty research at work equals:

Moon Manicures
or the Reverse French (that sounds sexy!)

Top Knots

Chanel Jade available in October
Sculpted Updos

There is nothing about this that I don't like

nude and black

I'm seeing and loving the nude/black combo everywhere for clothes and accessories this season. So, I'd like to translate that into a little nail art. Let the search begin.

a sign of the times

quote of the day

"it's not so much about greed, it's about speed. We know what we want and we want it now."—Glenda Bailey



"Steampunk fashion is a result of a mix of influences, and the style is also an expression of a desire to return to ritual and formality, incorporating the structured gentility of the Victorian age".
Cool. Btw, the Japanese are totally into this look and even have anime about it. Check out Steamboy.

Ok so I'm having une petit obsession with Chanel, Mais Oui?

Also, I have a wee bit of a style crush on Ms Chung. Love those shoulders!

high contrast


Headbands: Gonna rock it, you can't stop it

Why yes Karl, I was looking for a low maintenance/ high fashion hairstyle. How kind of you!

I am impatiently waiting for someone to make a version of the following tights for fall:

Seriously, its the end of August and these polkadots are NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. And lord knows I'm not dropping $40 on a pair from France. H&M I'm looking at you here. Hurry up already!

Louis may I?

something fishy

Edamame and Bacon salad. Fresh Cedar Plank Salmon and steamed Corn with Cumin. Yum.

Obsessed with bottles

Okay, I will admit to my love of alcohol. I am non discriminate in that love. It doesn't leave anyone behind. But I am a sucker for a well designed bottle. If you read my post about Veuve Clicquot, you know this. I bought this bottle of Kentucky Whiskey solely because of its packaging. Well...I did drink it. C'mon...look at its delicious amber color. Sigh, I digress. This bottle is amzing. The colors, the label. C'est magnifique.

Oh look! The Whiskey ran into its good friend Drambuie! What a coincedence seeing you here!

Together, they make the ultimate drink....the RUSTY NAIL

Spice Rackery

So, I made a spice rack. Now all my loverly spices have a home! Oh yes, that is a crackle glaze. So happy you noticed.

Damn you Wang

Swoon! I'm in love. For $650 big ones, these would complete me, along with about 12 outfits I currently sport. DAMN YOU WANG. I love tough, shit kicker boots. These are all that and a bucket of chicken.
