Show and Tell.....

So, I'm totally obsessed with my pink lipstick. As you can tell, I was in a silly picture-taking mood.

Pink lips...

I got my hands on some pink lipstick and I can't wait to try this look out! I've been contemplating purchasing a tube o' pink for awhile and was sold when I saw all these dark-haired beauties rock the look. Of course, a list of dark-haired beauties had to include the beautiful and fashionable blogger, Naomi. After seeing her pink lips, I ran for the nearest Sephora!

Bottoms up...

I have been working at a German bar/restaurant for almost a year now and today marks my first day as bartender. I will be tending bar a few days a week and I'm thrilled! This economy has really shaken all the beliefs and expectations I had for myself. No, I'm not an account executive at a company neither am I in Law School or married with child. I am just a 26-year old bartender/waitress. While that thought would have probably given me chills 5 years ago, I couldn't be happier. Life is too short to be doing something I don't enjoy. This job gives me the flexibility to do so much when I'm not working. I can take sewing classes, be in a band with my friends and hang out with my boyfriend regularly. Maybe in a few years, when the economy is on the up and up, I'll start feeling the pressure to work at some corporate office, for now, I'm perfectly content with uttering the words, "Can I get you another drink?"

Fashion epiphany

I have been shopping for myself and picking out my own clothing for about 10 years now and although my style and preferences have changed a bit, I've pretty much kept my same "look" through the years. I'm pretty sure that is the same for any girl. However, I've never experienced an intense fashion epiphany until as of late.

I own a multitude of sleeveless and strapless dressed and yet when I buy a dress with sleeves, I find myself wearing it more often than not. As in twice in the same week. I reach for the same dress even though I have plenty of other options that are sans sleeves. So, the other day I said to myself, I should buy more dresses with sleeves. Eureka! However, it's not so easy to find dresses with sleeves but I did spy two cuties that even though they are way out of my price range, are super adorable.
