The Joys of a Tuesday!

November 28, 2007

These are Hot Kiss “Cameron” boots from Famous Footwear. Also – since I bought my boyfriend some hot shoes, too… Mine were half off because of their “BOGO”-style sale, weighing in at $22!

Beautiful payday was yesterday, providing me with enough money for Christmas gifts… As well as my annual Christmas gift – for myself. I’m donning these beauties today:


They’re Hot Kiss’ “Cameron” Boot from Famous Footwear. The best part? They were only about $22!! I know! Famous Footwear is having a delicious post-Turkey-day sale where, after you buy one pair of [well priced…] shoes at full price, you get the second pair half off! I suppose they call that “BOGO” or something, yes? I bought my boyfriend a pair of hot Sketchers’ Urban Cleats (I was impressed, since I wore Sketchers in Jr. High!) and so I got my little babies for cheap!

I’m extremely happy with my purchase. I’ve worn them since approximately 10am (it’s now 6pm) and I’m not dying, my feet aren’t screaming… They’re wonderful!

Everyone ought to buy themselves a Christmas present, I think… We spend the most time with ourselves, and it’s important to appreciate the things we do. Here are some reasons to celebrate yourself this Christmas:

  • Eating healthy, indulging every so often…
  • Going to school, work, or whatever it is that you do to sustain yourself.
  • Hitting the hottest concert and treating your ears to something you love.
  • Appreciating the environment and recycling, eating organic, or using sustainable products in your home.
  • Donating some green, time, or energy to a non-profit organization.

These are all great ways that you take care of yourself every year, so you ought to be treated well by the most important person… Yourself!

Enjoy, my lovelies!

Making tuition REALLY worth it…

August 9, 2007

So we students all know that it’s extremely hard to be well dressed as a fulltime student while being well-fed and well-educated. Tuition is really *$#!ing expensive. Well, I’ve discovered a great way to invest in hot style without sacrificing your education bucks.

When it comes to handbags, it’s all about the clutch for painting the town red and drinks with the girls… But during the day while you’re running from class to class, job to job, from the office to the nearest Starbucks… The shoulder tote is booming like never before. Take a hint (a slight one, anyway) from MK & Ashley Olsen. Their bags are, quite often, larger than they are! It’s not necessarily “the bigger, the better”-syndrome, but a large bag ensures that you’ll have everything on hand, and the opportunity to look extra chic whilst having everything at your fingertips is only becoming more available.

Logically, you’d think “littler bags are already a fortune, especially for the hottest ones… isn’t a big one going to be a disaster for my bank account?”

NO!

There are tons of carry-all bags to fit your budget! They may not be made of the finest leathers or authentic cobra-skin (ew.), but they’ll carry everything you need – including your books. That’s right. Use this bag as a book bag during the week and a sexy handbag during your weekend shopping trips. Come on, any excuse to incorporate school into your curriculum-ridden school schedule is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed!

Here are some fantastic finds that will work perfectly in school, or on the streets:

1. Merona Tote Bag – Red; Target – $24.99
This bag is HOT. Buckles are also becoming really stylish lately, and the deep red color of this bag is noticeable without being totally flashy, and the richness is perfect for fall.

2. Grey Leather Tote; Topshop.com – £50.00
Grey goes with everything – from a business suit, to a boldly colored trapeze dress. And the size is definitely nothing to complain about!

3. Isaac Mizrahi Canvas Tote; Target – $29.99
Metallics are HOT for fall – bronze, gold, silver, copper… Whatever it is, it’s eye-catching and gorgeous. This is a white canvas bag with silver metallic trim that will leave you feeling super-hot whatever you do.
