Why do I need/want these?

PLwtebuttonlegwarmers

Have you ever seen something and instantly knew that they didn’t have any place in your life, but..you still wanted them? Well, that’s how I felt about these button leg warmers I spotted over at Plasticland.

There are so cute, yet victorian thanks to round gold buttons that give the look of old time spats. I’m not a leg warmers girl and short skirts and shorts are nowhere near sight, but I would just love to have these in my personal archives. However, I need a reason. Any suggestions?

Louboutin Straratata

LOUBOUTINstratata
Here I was, all ready for winter to sweep through with all its cold weather so I could indulge in warm cozy sweaters and boots. However, leave it to Christian Louboutin to have me almost immediately forget about snuggly smocks and instead about spring and summer garbs.
Aren’t these Louboutin Straratata freaking hot?! When I saw these, all I wanted to do was shave my legs, shine them up with some oil, and strut in the shortest shorts my figure would allow me. Unfortunately, not as short as I would like.
Anyway, the multicolored suede straps and sole just plateaued my want for summer to return. Time to go say a little prayer for rush order seasonal weather.

Nail Buds

nailbuds_main

I’m a sucker for a cute product in a cute package and that sucker syndrome got me to buy these Nail Buds this morning at the drugstore across the street from my job.

Nail Buds are a handy pack of “go-to” mini nail files that look a like pack of matches. Yes, the cute factor. Mine were only 99 cents, but I they are really great quality to nail files. Since they do come in the same size package as a envelope of matches, they are not that big, but are perfect for filing away snags and quick shape-ups.

There are 24 in a pack and are a great addition to the bottom of your purse for when you need them! Look around online or a local drugstore for Nail Buds.

Holiday Gift Guide…E.L.F Makeup 50% Off

elfhalfoff_09_09

For the past few years, there is always one box under the Christmas tree from me to my little sister that she instantly looks for, finds, and shakes to hear for rattling. If she hears the rattling, then she already knows its my annual gift to her…a box filled with makeup!
She loves makeup! So, I always try and give her a box of various makeup and brushes. I tend to put in about 50 pieces of makeup, brushes/applicators, and maybe a cosmetic bag in the box and all of it comes from E.L.F!
In case you are living under a drab rock, E.L.F is a cosmetic line that got its fame and glory by offering high quality makeup for a $1. Now, they still have $1 makeup, but they have grown over the years to offer other items that are just a couple bucks more, but still great quality. Actually, E.L.F’s affordable makeup and wide selection is what gave me the idea to create this little annual gift and I love that my sister looks for it every year and this year will be no exception.
E.L.F. is currently offering a Buy 1 get the second half off promotion. Needless to say this is just the right time for me to gather up the items I want to add to this year’s beauty box for my sister. Time to go order $75 worth of E.L.F cosmetics, because $75 equals FREE SHIPPING which are my favorite words this time of year!

Velvet Angels’ Whiskey A Go Go boots

VELVETANGELwhiskeyagogo

One of the hardest things to find is a pair of fly red booties. The ones I tend to find are super simple and clean line or they have a ridiculously high heel/platform that look super slutty/hooker-ish.

Well, I spotted these red Whiskey A Go Go booties by Velvet Angels and I instantly started fawning. I know some of you might be turning your nose the faux croc red skin, but I love it paired with the stacked wood heel and platform. I guess you can say it softens the blow!

Although, I’m already imagining the dream scenarios the red boots are going to star in my dream, I’m also loving the black and natural, also! Especially the natural, because I feel you can never have too many natural shoes!
