Disco Duo

 Calgel is becoming super popular.  It is a nail gel that last for 2 weeks without chipping and allows fun designs and covering your entire nail with glitter.  I don't know about anyone else but I think I would get tired of glitter on my nail for 2 weeks but would like to get this adorable look that's really hot right now.  Forever 21 sells a set called Disco Duo and only cost $1.50 where calgel on the other hand costs around $40. These two nail polishes work together and make it seem like your entire nail is covered in glitter

Irish Fishermen

One thing you can count on this fall season and even into the winter is over sized sweaters.  One of my favorite variation of the over size sweater is the Irish fishermen sweater, I have been wearing them for years and they made their way onto the runway in Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 ready to wear show and let me tell you I am so ready.  Now the Marc Jacobs sweater cost $1,400 at SAKs but can can find them in endless amounts of websites like L.L. Bean and will typically cost $129, which is much better to work with.  Buying a mens sweater will be best to roll with the over sized look.

Benefit Your Lips

Sometimes lipstick can be a little over powering and just too much, but we all wanna put a little umf into yourselves.  A great way to achieve a low key red lip is with a stain.  My favorite stain is made by Benefit and comes paired with a gloss.  It's called a pocket pal and will fit in anything from a clutch to a tote so its perfect for everyday wear.

Steel Grey

For those who follow my blog you already know that I am trying to break my red nail polish habit.  I'm all about red nail polish all the time, but I want to start changing it up.  Another thing my followers know is that I die for Gaga and when I saw the cover of Vanity Fair I wanted to be here.  Well I can't be her but I can have her amazing nails!  Gaga isn't the only one sporting gray nails it's a huge trend this fall. Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro in Steel Grey is a great gray and it is also said to last 10 whole days without chipping.  I'm on my one first day and skeptical, time will tell.

Greetings from Montenegro!

I haven't written a post in quite some time so I will take a a break from my glorious vacation to share one of my favorite tricks.  This is something I have taken full advantage of while in Montenegro having been in the sun a lot.  I hate sunburns and the only part of my body that actually burns is my face; its awful.  There is one trick however that does not make me cringe at that thought of it and that is how amazing my bronzer looks over the sunburn.  Its something about the contrast of the red and the brown that just do magical things.  The bronzer I use the most and love is Tarte in Park Ave Princess its not too shimmery like most bronzers and you'll never be orange.

Scallop Please!

I love the soft feminine feel of a scallop trim.  Summer is also the best time for such a lovely detail because it embodies the , like I mentioned before, the soft feel that only a summer night's breeze can create. 

This first piece is a GORG clutch that is wonderfully done in my favorite color, mint.  This clutch is not only fabulous but it is also on sale for 20 Euro from French Connection.

My heart stops and this is loooove.  This is the most amazing swimsuit I've seen thus far and my loves at Chloe have made it.  The only down fall is Chloes only down fall the price, $205.

These shorts also done by my favorite Chloe are perfect.  They can be dressed up or down and are perfect for any summers day or night.  They have a price tag of a whooping $206.50.

These shoes are darling!  They are made by Charlotter Olympia and cost 635 Euros.
