While I can’t paint my fingernails because of my future profession, I still can’t help from buying various polishes. Luckily pedicures aren’t outlawed for me, so I can indulge a little in the latest nail trends. Fall/Winter 2010 seems to be about the reds, grey colored plums, and sparkles. Some are holograms (seriously)! Which just blows my mind.
It seems as if everywhere I look people are raving about the Chanel Paradoxal color, which is in the top of this post. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and it makes me anxious for holiday parties. Butter has an ode to the late Alexander McQueen with their All Hail McQueen (a beautiful gold) and Bumster (a dijon yellow). I’m most in love with their purple Marrow color. And OPI took inspiration from the Swiss! Their collection is filled with various reds and blues, with some surprising colors thrown in.
Overall, I love these fall and winter colors, especially the purples and golds. I can’t wait to find some of these colors and try them out sooner rather than later.
I got this Lock-It Larchmont Leather Shoulder Bag from Saks.com in late February. I had been eyeing it since before Christmas and it had finally went on sale. I was so excited when I got it, and I immediately started carrying it. Within two weeks the front panel had a place in the leather that was weak enough that if I caught it on anything it would tear a hole. Luckily that hasn’t happened, but the spot is so thin it wouldn’t take much.
Also parts of this bag have begun to turn blue! I’m not certain why this is happening. I took it to a leather repair shop and they thought it was the dye that was used. They also checked the weak spot and told me there was nothing that could be done. While the bottom of the bag is in excellent condition because I always hang my purses, these spots just can’t be explained.
Another problem I’ve had has been with rain. The rain stains the bag if it even gets one drop on it. I didn’t have a jacket to stuff it in one day and so I had to run to my car, these water spots have faded a bit but if you look close they’re still there.
This all being said, I love the interior of the bag! It’s so roomy, and the lovely purple color compliments the neutral beige tone so well. The pockets are handy and the shape is wonderful. Overall I was severely disappointed with this purse, and I know I’m not the only one. A friend has the exact same one and her’s has turned blue worse than mine has.
I love this girl! I honestly don’t care if she is (or isn’t) dating Joe Jonas, she’s gorgeous! Her body is absolutely amazing (she obviously works hard for it too!) and she dresses it in some of the most gorgeous designers. From Valentino, to Urban Outfitters she looks gorgeous in everything she wears.
Her style is closest to my own (or what I want it to be) which is why I had to have her be my first spotlight. I have caught myself studying photo’s of her just to find out that we have the exact same shirt, jeans, or pair of shoes!

While many people don’t admit it, I do completely. Hi, I’m Sarah and I’m a Twilighter.
After spending time in Seattle, Brian and I decided to take a trip on the 101 around the whole peninsula. I am so glad we did this even though it took all day. The whole area is gorgeous, not just Forks and La Push. Crescent Lake and the Hoh rainforest absolutely floored me with their natural beauty. If you ever have the opportunity to take this trip I absolutely recommend it!
Also, I was blown away by the interior of the store Dazzled by Twilight. I couldn’t help taking a picture, it was just too fun.
After a long night in a hotel that looked nice online, but really was trashy Brian and I picked up our rental car and made our way to Seattle. I can’t express my love for this city enough. While we were there on a sunny day, we had some of the most gorgeous views of the city, sounds, and everything in between.
We just hit up the two major tourist attractions in the Belltown area, and absolutely fell in love with it. It was so clean, people walked everywhere it seemed, and there were so many fun shops we ended up looking through. Seattle you have captured my heart, treat it well!
