What I’d like to read now

December 29th, 2011

I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading over the holiday break, mostly about investing and stocks (I know how boring lol). Now I’d like to switch gears and relax my brain and read about fashion. I’d love to have these fashion books on my night stand and on my coffee table.

Happy the day after Christmas

December 26th, 2010

I hope everybody had a fantastic Christmas!! And Happy Boxing Day to my Canadian readers. Hope you score great deals if you are out hunting. All I’m going to buy hopefully is diapers on sale, haha! Before I head out, this outfit is some of the new clothes I got for Christmas (except the skirt). My mom-in-law got me this pink top with lace-up back, my sis-in-law got me the cute yellow cardigan. The necklace and the knee-high socks with lace trims (somebody was reading this blog) and the fuzzy boots are from my guy.

And the best gift I got from my guy was this dun dun dun…

SONY READER!

I have so many ebooks on my laptop that I have yet to read.  As you can see I’ve loaded 29 books on there already.  Now I can read them before I go to bed every night.

Back to eBay

March 15th, 2010

I can’t believe how long I stayed away from eBay for, exactly two months! The itch somehow came back today and I had to browse. And I’m glad I did. The first things I looked were shoes (of course) and I found this lovely ebay store that sell trendy shoes for amazing prices. It’s definitely going on my favorites list. I’m so tempted to click on Buy it Now on all these.

Want expert cosmetics reviews? Subscribe to Beautypedia.com!

January 23rd, 2009

So everybody knows how big of a fan I am of the Cosmetics Cop Paula Begoun. Her website and her book, Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me, 7th Edition, have armed me for years when I go shopping for new skincare products and makeup. Now she will no longer publish any more editions of her book (the 7th edition was her last one), but she has an even better tool to help women — her new website, Beautypedia.com! It is literally an encyclopedia of most beauty products on the market today. That’s thousands of products from hundreds of lines that she has reviewed. I immediately subscribed to it, it’s only $24.95 for a year. It is kept up-to-date with new products and new lines added constantly, so I can read up on any new products that I’m curious about. It has really saved me money so far when I wanted to splurge on expensive ones that didn’t pass Paula’s tests. Her reviews are all scientific and unbiased, and she definitely doesn’t play favorites towards to fancier department store brands over cheap drugstore brands. I have recommended this website to all my friends (now they don’t have to borrow my book anymore) and I’m recommending it to you darlings. I’m pretty sure I’ll be a life-long suscriber.
