Valentino Platform Couture Bow Patent Pump

 

I am certainly not a girl who can resist Valentino’s obsession with bows. Their purses are beautifully & the heels are glamorous. As wedding season soon will be upon us I think we all know it is necessary to have in your closet that perfect show to go with your well thought out wedding guest outfit. Now we all know you take your shoes off once you hit the dance floor but you need that striking shoe for when you walk down the aisle… as a guest of course.

I know the right shoe is just as important as the right dress and for this lady there can be no other classic formal shoe than Valentino’s “Platform Couture Bow Patent Pump” which comes in various colors of red/black/nude lace/black lace/gold metallic color/ bronze pearl and will cost you $745…it is like filling up your oil tank …and that heats your house for a few months!

Sometimes a girl has to make some sacrifices …but not on style, just the maker. I found a great look-a-like that won’t even make a dent in your wallet at under $100 but comes with all the glam by Paris Hilton. Yes, Paris Hilton has a shoe collection but I must admit from a girl who owns a pair of her heels, I get compliments every time I wear them & while they are sky high they are VERY comfortable.  Paris’s shoes come with hot pink soles and I really have to admit her “Señorita” it is hard to tell the real from the fake apart! Just imagine how many other pairs of shoes you could buy with that savings… or maybe use it to fill up your oil tank for heat & still wear your fancy shoes to all those weddings & showers this spring & summer!

See you barefoot on the dance floor! :)

IN MY OPINION: bareMinerals Redness Remedy

In My Opinion… 

bareMinerals Redness Remedy

Some women buy various blush or cheek polish to give their apples a glorious blush pink glow… I have a natural pink tone to my face… and I’m trying everyday to tone that down! I guess the saying is true you always want what you can’t have .

There are products you can buy over the counter that say they work but the question is do they work like what you can get a a dermatologist office? Well I am a beauty-junkie always at various makeup counters and I like mineral makeup so while at a Bare Essentuials boutique I saw “Redness Remedy”. For $27 I couldn’t resist … just visiting my dermatologist costs almost $100 ( I have a huge deductible plan :( ) and add at least 2 products when I leave I’m out a good $250 … if it does works it is like I found this product 90% off from my usual!! SCORE – I hope…

CLICK HERE: Redness Remedy, bareMinerals $27

 

My Mission: Use this product for 3 weeks to see if bareMinerals Redness Remedy actually did what it claims: reduces redness and additionally minimize the appearance of broken capillaries.

My Daily Use: Apply every morning & night after my moisturizer (I used bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer with Rare Mineral Active Soil Complex)

My Results:  Sorry to say I don’t see the redness on my face any less red after I applied then before! This was disappointing to me after reading so many positive reviews online but on a positive note the brush that comes with the mineral complex is very soft and the redness remedy mineral itself smells lightly fragrant, lavender maybe.

Unfortunately it looks like I have yet to find an over the counter treatment that is more cost effective than the dematorologist but that works just as well… or at least works!

My search continues & I will give you my results on the next product review!

I’ll see you in the Return Line!

YUMMY-YUMMY

CHEESECAKE STUFFED STRAWBERRIES

It was my husband’s birthday last week so I threw a little dessert party that evening for a few but since the hubby had no clue I couldn’t make any of the goodies!  Thank goodness my sister-in-law came across this recipe, it was EASY, YUMMY & best of all partially healthy!

Cheesecake filled strawberries … a great fast dessert to bring to a summer picnic, whip up for a Christmas party or sweeten up your Valentine’s day!

I would make one addition to this recipe and cut the bottoms of the strawberries slightly so they can sit on their own but not cut through…then dip them in melted chocolate & let them chill then follow the recipe…. Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Filled Strawberries …. HEAVEN!!!

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Ingredients:
-1 lb large strawberries
-8 oz. cream cheese, softened (can use 1/3 less fat)
-3-4 tbsp powdered sugar (4 tbsp for a sweeter filling)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-graham cracker crumbs
 
Directions:
1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out with a paring knife, if necessary (some may already be hollow inside). Prep all strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill strawberries with cheesecake mixture. Once strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

 

Happy Eating…I’ll see you at the gym!

Couture to Copy : Pearl Platform Pumps

Pearl Platform Pumps

 While recently browsing the Neiman Marcus website in search of new shoes to lust after I came across the “Pearl-Platform Satin Pump” by Nicholas Kirkwood with a 5″ covered heel . These heels are gorgeous & would add a touch of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” glamour to any outfit!  Can’t you just imagine her in that famous little black dress, sparkly tiara, endless pearl necklaces and these shoes?!?!

 

CLICK HERE: Nicholas Kirkwood Pearl Platform Pumps, Neiman Marcus $995

 

If you can’t part with a grand this month to splurge on these fabulous stilettos here is a great alternative at a substantially lower price-point!

 “Pearla0” by Red Kiss is selling on E-Bay & various online retailers like Shiekh Shoes for about $30 to $60. The red and nude look very close to the Kirkwood heels while the black has silver-toned pearl detail.

 

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Nude $29.99

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Red $29.99

 CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Black $29.99

 

I believe every girl can wear any shoe, and how can a pair of pearl platform pumps not be part of your shoe collection? Sure I want to have the original pair of pumps for $1,000 but for under $100 I can have a pair in all 3 colors…. I’ll be expecting a very large box in the mail very soon & my collection will be one step closer to closet-heaven!

Twenty Dollar Trendy Feb 2012

TWENTY DOLLAR TRENDY

FEBRUARY 2012

 

I have been looking lately for a structured bag in a neutral tone that looks polished enough for life in the corporate world but still says I have style, love my designers and own the latest trend.  But I love my bags like I love my shoes which means I have too many to wear and it makes justifing $1,000 on one purse hard at times.  I love how Payless Shoes features some great designer collections like Lela Rose & the fierce Christian Siriano. His clothes are amazing and his ever changing collection at Payless keeps me coming back for more! This crossbody bag in Navy/Tan is a STEAL at just under $20 so when the fashion changes or I beat this bag up & it is on to the next at least I know I looked good while it lasted for just Twenty-Dollar Trendy!

 CLICK HERE: Women’s Liam Crossbody (Navy/Tan), Christian Siriano for Payless $19.99

 I love my IPhone 4S! I’ve had an IPhone since the original & I could never switch to any other phone. The IPhones are big & boring looking even though their technology is amazing! I love the beautiful Sworavski crystal encrusted IPhone covers that cost $300 each but I’m too rough and know I’ll damage that in a matter of weeks! Now there is a cheap solution to that boring case problem!  For well under $20 you can get a blinged out IPhone case from Charolette Russe in clear & pink crystals with a big heart!!!      

CLICK HERE: Bling Heart IPhone Case, Charlotte Ruse $9.50

   I <3 this 

 I love a good statement necklace but I do have my classic Tiffany necklace that tends to be a staple item worn on an almost daily basis which is why I hate to spend too much on costume jewlery. I also noticed gold-tone all over the Fall 2012 Fashion Week runway so thought a great way to add in this bold trend & still stand out was on a great neckalce! For under $20 you too can get this fashion statement and update your wardrobe!

Happy Shopping!

We all know the greatest fashion houses create some of the best shoe designs but those designer duds can cost a pretty penny. While I sometimes splurge on the real thing, my budget cannot cover my shoe fetish at a thousand dollars a pop.  I love walking through Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus just as much as I love to browse through the racks at Target and Ann Taylor. I believe a girl should always invest in good staple items such as the sexy black stiletto, a polished nude wedge, the perfect ballet flat, a basic black pump, a chic pair of boots and glamorous summer sandals…. but let’s be honest, I love shoes too much to only own a few pairs in the closet, even if they are all high-end designers. This brings me to the “Couture to Copy” section of my blog where I will show you a fabulous designer shoe & if it isn’t in your budget but a must-have of the season where you can find it for less but still just as stunning.
