Water Marbling

I water marbled! Yay! 

Its the coolest thing ever, I swear! 

If you are going to do it, I strongly suggest watching a couple of youtube videos about it first, since it is very complicated. Heres the video I watched. 

Heres how mine turned out

You will need: 
Two or three [high quality, non-gloopy] nail polishes of your choosing. I used China Glaze Rich and Famous and China Glaze Up All Night.
Toothpick, or something pointy
Cup of water. Cold works best
Tape. I used masking tape.
Drop the colors alternating in the water, they should spread. After you feel you have enough rings, drag the toothpick through it to make a cool design, then put you finger in the design and before you take it out, clean up the remaining paint.

Basically, this is super hard [I think] My boyfriend helped me with mine [he was interested in the science of it!] You really have to experiment with it. I love how mine ended up turning out and I started some sort of revolution because now everyone is doing at my work and stuff haha!
If you try it, blog it and tell me about it!

1 More Day!

So right now, I am pretty much dying in anticipation.  Why?  In less than 24 hours the Zac Posen for Target collection will be available!  This amazing collection is exclusive to Target and will be available in stores nationwide.  Ranging from $16 to $200, this collaboration offers a wide range of women's apparel, outerwear, accessories and swimwear for a fraction of the price of Posen's runway pieces.  However, just because they're afordable don't expect them to be boring.  The designer boasts that in this collection you will find a tuxedo for women, dresses with detachable ruffles and Target's first-ever gown (among many other delightful things)!  These pieces are a fresh take on some of Posen's iconic pieces and offer a modern edge to classic looks. 

This is one collection you won't want to miss!

To the Beach!

    With summer just two months away, it's time to start thinking about summer make up.  When this time of year rolls around, everyone wants to look as smoldering as the sun, and this season, MAC's To the Beach collection has all the tools you need to look sultry and sunkissed.
This collection, ranging from $12 to $50, includes several different shades of eyeshadow, liner, lipcolor, blush, powder, nail laqcuer, and bronzer.  Special brushes that guarantee great application are also available, as well as a fabulous beach tote.

And as if the gorgeous shades aren't great enough, this entire collection is covered in whimsical sea prints.  Being fairly pale, I am really looking forward to trying out the Marine Life highlight powder ($26) as well as the eye khol in Float on By ($14.50).  What do you think of this collection?  Anything you're dying to try?

My current obsession:
They give you models, you choose looks, and camera effects, and PRESTO you have a fabulous look! I just started yesterday and I have to say that I give this site two thumbs up! It's really the best thing out there for virtual styling. The site provides you with tons and tons of designer clothes (it's super easy to sort through it all) and you click and it goes on the model! Once on the model you can choose how/where some of the looks lay.

Here's some of the looks I created.

Seeing Turquoise

Am I the only person obsessing over the nail colors from Chanel's summer 2010 make up collection?  This collection, entitled "Les Pop-Up de Chanel", includes several vibrant shades for nails and lips.  I'm especially looking forward to the nail lacquers, specifically in Nouvelle Vague.  Its lively turquoise hue definitely adds that extra pop to any summer outfit, and I'm sure it looks absolutely stunning in the sun.  Chanel really knows how to do candy colors without being tacky and overdone :)  This collection will be available online and in select department stores starting in May, so start asking around if you want to get your hands (or nails, so to speak) on this amazing color!  Don't have thirty dollars to fork out on finger paint?  Try China Glaze's For Audrey nail lacquer

Liberty of London for Target

I visited Target tonight with my good friend Chelsea and all I saw right and left was Liberty of London! The kitschy floral style is not usually my type but there must be something about the way they are made, all of the items are so pretty!
They have clothes, swim wear, accessories, home items, stationary, boxes, gardening tools. Everything you can imagine in pretty florals just in time for spring!   
I bought the Stationary Box for my sisters birthday.

I also have decided to be a grown up and start wearing heels more [we'll see how long that lasts] So tonight I bought these. I think they're quite sensible while still being sexy. 

 What do you ladies [and gentleman] think about Liberty of London for Target?
