One of the trends in jewelry, necklaces specifically that I’m completely on board with and totally loving is the bib necklaces, the elaborate oversize necklaces that lie flat at the collar, are not only gorgeous but they sit so perfectly at the decolletage as if they are an extension of whatever top you’re wearing. And they cover such a large area, they will make any plain top look fabulous.

Pearls have been on the forefront of accessories since Carrie wore a long strand of pearls to bed in last year’s Sex and The City movie. And they seem to get bigger and flashier and edgier this year. Now that it’s getting warmer and our necklines are getting lower and barer, a big bold pearl necklace, fake or real, classic white color or multicolor, is just the perfect accessory to bring the whole outfit together.

Soiree Ribbon Front Slingbacks $65. These slingbacks are such a fun hybrid of bootie and peep-toe pump. Makes it a versatile shoe for work and play. And I love how you can arrange the bows to make it simpler-looking or more like a flower.
AVON seems to have become my go-to inexpensive beauty brand besides the drugstore brands. And I love their frequent sales so you rarely have to buy anything at the full price. From today, April 10th through April 23th, you can save up to 67% at The Spring Makeup Sale! Plus, with FREE SHIPPING on any order $40 or more. I picked up a few things for just around $10! Not a bad haul
I just picked up this GLAZEWEAR Liquid Lip Color for just $1.99 (was $6)! Last time I tried it in Rosebud shade. It’s a fabulous neutral color that is suitable for everybody. It makes your lips look so shiny and smooth like glass. The lines on the lips literally disappear! This time I decided to try out more colors, so I went with Tickled Pink (a very light pink), Real Red (a deep wine red), and Rave (pink with shimmer, one of the Dazzlers for evening wear). When it’s only $1.99 a pop, you can buy a whole bunch to experiment.
This MagiX Tinted Face Perfector is one of the newer products AVON just came up with. And as soon as I saw it has SPF 15, I had to get it, only for $7 (was $10)! AVON makes very good powder foundations. This one is said to visibly minimizes pores with patent-pending Optix Light-Diffusing Technology. And it holds back shine for up to 10 hours. I hate reapplying powder throughout the day until it gets all cakey and fake-looking. So this will really help me.
MOISTURE THERAPY Intensive Moisturizing Lip Treatment SPF 15 $0.99. I buy this lip balm with SPF 15 by the truckload. It keeps my lips moist and soft and safe from the harmful UV rays everyday. Summer’s coming, girls, remember to wear SPF on your lips tooMakeup, Sales/Deals | Comment (1)
The long weekend’s almost here, yay! I’m in the mood to wear pretty pastel hues. I even painted my nails a light lavender shade. I love me some pastels in the early spring, from exquisitely printed satin dresses, candy-colored blazers, light coats and ruffled mini dresses, to candy-colored accessories and even handbags to keep you looking fabulous and polished all the time in spring.

I can’t believe it’s snowing like it’s January today! I already took my snow tires off. I was really nervous driving home on the semi-bald summer tires. I had to put on a winter jacket and boots. The last thing I want to look at is winter jackets and boots! What I want are these super cute and super light cotton jersey tanks and tees from Insight. It’s time to get the skin breathe.Tops/Blouses | Comment (0)
Now that I’ve finally put away all the winter boots and suede pumps, it’s time to update my work shoes. Sure, I can pull out the good ol’ classic pumps and flats. But really, it’s spring! It’s good to inject some new blood into your shoe wardrobe with something still properly corporate but with a little bit of unexpectedness like some cutouts here, little bows there, or totally pretty prints.

In a new season, I need new tops and blouses for work again. Browsing on Gap’s website, I found a series of tops with pleat and ruffle details that really appealed to me. Just pretty and simple enough for work. And they are super easy to layer under cardigans and blazers. This weekend I will have to pick up a few pieces if I feel better.
