I'm loving the sweetheart neckline and the fitted bodice. It gives that "tinsy tiny waist" look. I also like that the bodice is still so eye-catching without being beaded or lace. The sheen and texture of it totally pull me in. Imagine this dress in a bright, pearl-white.
I'm sitting at the airport, and, boy, do I see some sights. Right across from me is a burnt orange Snooki look-alike. Her upper lip is so orange with self-tanner that it looks like she has been chugging orange soda all day.
Tip: NEVER saturate your upper lip with self-tanner. Since your upper lip is naturally drier than the rest of your face, tanning chemicals will absorb into that skin WAY more.
Oh, yep, there went the girl gang of lil kim-wannabes. It's 7:16 pm, and they are wearing sunglasses.... inside... as they order fast food from the airport's Chickfila. It seems fitting that they are also in Juicy Couture sweatsuits that are one size too small. One of the girls has a "Babygirl" plastered across her arse in rhinestones. Get the picture?
Tip: Don't wear sunglasses at night to "make a statement." The only statement that you're making is that you might be confused, either about the time of day or about how you're not the celebrity you think you are.
Across the concourse I saw a girl walking in a skirt and boots. Cute, right? Not when you are also wearing a backpack that pulls your skirt up with each step you take. She does have cute panties on. I'll give her that.
Tip: Never wear a backpack with a skirt. It's going to pull the skirt up, and you probably won't notice that your giving everybody a free "backstage pass" until it's too late. You know what I mean?
This last observation is the final straw. There is a lady breast-feeding her 3-year old as she walks down the concourse. Yes, I said "breastfeeding" and "3-year old" in the same sentence. The kids legs are dangling all the way to the lady's knees. From what I can tell, it's her son. But I cannot quite tell because the kids head is stuffed under her shirt.
Tip: Many psychologists agree that a child's personality is molded from age 0-5. Basically, you need to nip this habit in the butt, or should I say the nipple.
Christina Aguilera in "Burlesque" was fantastic. Here's my favorite track from it- "Express." This song makes me wanna let down my long curly locks, put on a tiny sequin dress, and shake what my mama gave me. The hair inspired by this movie is very natural and sexy. I plan on rocking this look in London next semester since my flat iron probably will not fit into their outlets.
Meet the "bubble shirt" aka the "banded tunic"aka the "omg-there-is-an-inner-tube-around-your-waist-shirt." Honestly, we need to stop pretending these tops are cute. Face it, these shirts won't even flatter the Olson twins or an 85 lb teeny bopper.... same thing. Anyways, take a look.
She could probably float with all of the air in that shirt, not to mention, the buoys on top.
Pregnant?...Or not? Pregnant?....Or not? You never want to be the butt of that question.
No matter how smokin' your body is, never put a band around your widest part.
You want an "Apple bottom"? This looks more like a "Saggy bottom."
In the words of my boyfriend, "This shirt looks like a deflated circus tent."
It's finals time. I'm currently cozy on my bed studying Information Technology while my "Homemade Cookies" candle burns beside me. Sounds great, right? Not when you have been doing this for the past 3 days. What's a better pick me up than puppies and cupcakes and pretty pink things? Probably nothing. Hope this makes your life a little more cute and a little less stressful :)
Looking at these make me feel so happy. Which picture makes you happiest?
Meet Dan. He's a senior at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minneapolis, MN. If you're looking for a tall, athletic, Christian, Conservative guy, Dan is your man. Did I mention he was a lifeguard? Here is Dan's advice to the ladies: "It's OK for girls to make the first move. Some guys may be too shy, or they might have no idea you are even interested. If things are moving too slow, go for it. Guys are attracted to self confidence just as much as girls are." Leave a comment if you're interested, or check him out on Facebook here.
The Travalo. When traveling, you don't want to carry a huge glass bottle of perfume. You're basically asking to drop it on the floor and spill $75 worth of fragrance. Not to mention, a big bottle weighs you down, takes up way too much space, and always gets scratched while rolling around the bottom of your purse. This little gadget is about the size of your pointer finger and extracts your favorite fragrance from the big bottle- MESS FREE! Check out the video. Oh, and it comes in many colors, even black and silver a.k.a. man colors.
