Plenty of Peplum

You’ve been seeing celebrities on red carpets wearing some extra fabric around their waist. You’re probably staring at it with mixed feeling, it’s attractive in a weird way. Well that little bunched up fabric at the waist line is called a peplum and I’m sure you’ve seen it before on the edges of blazers and jackets. Recently, when the trend came in this year, it’s just gotten  more exaggerated and been popping up on dresses and skirts. It’s been featured on the runway from the fall of 2011, through Spring/Summer of 2012 and is expected to reappear when the colder months come in.

Summer Beauty Essentials

I really wish I was sitting on a beach right now.  The water looks so gorgeous! Instead, I’m in scorching weather, attempting to keep cool.

Here are 6 essential beauty products that I need during the summer…

NOTD: Sally Hansen Rose Wine

20120708-092058.jpgToday I have a quick nail of the day! I’m out of town this week (no worries, posts will be up!), and I decided to give myself a fresh manicure last night. Of course, by time I got up this morning one nail had been chipped out of an otherwise perfect manicure. I decided to go with a simple pink color that would go with anything. The one I picked is from Sally Hansen’s Hard As Nails line, which I absolutely adore! The colors are really pretty, and the nail polish dries pretty fast which provides for minimal damage. The coats are not that thick, so for a lasting mani I suggest coating about 3 times. The color I used is Rose Wine. It’s a really pretty, simple pink, but it tends to change color in different lights which I love. For more pictures and other pink polishes keep reading… Continue reading
