Loving My Color NYDJ: #FashionFriday

Color jeans are all the rage, and I am now in love with my ankle jeans by Not Your Daughter's Jeans ("NYDJ"). NYDJ is one of the first jeans to help flatten your tummy, and they do it quite well. I remember when NYDJ came out, and I had to have a pair. I fell in love instantly. I got my mom hooked on them too. I even gave her all of mine after having my 1st, and I couldn't fit into them anymore. … [Read more...]

My Nails Are Feeling Blue

This current beauty obsession is blue/teal nails. I wanted to find the right shade, and wound up with 3 shades to try.

I was pleasantly surprised by the choices, and of course the price is right. I … [Read more...]

Searching For A Tote Bag With Pockets – #FashionFriday

The perfect bag for me to take to work would be a tote bag that had a lot of pockets for organization. Doesn't sound so unreasonable right? Well it seems my new obsession isn't as easy to find as I would've liked. In my usual obsessive manner I got it in my head that I needed to find a tote bag to take all of my non-purse items to work.
