Shrek-Tacular!!!!!!!!!!!!! Opi Goes Shrek!!!!!!!!

Inspiration comes in all forms these days! Case in point, the Shrekology makes its final debut this spring with Shrek Forever After! And what a way to go out with a bang, than by introducing a hot line of fun-tastic nail colors!!! I have been sporting the powder blue hue, aptly named "What's the Cattitude". Other Shreky colors include: a lovely lilac, "Rumple's Wiggin", a ocean deep blue, "Ogre the Top Blue", and of course an ode to the movies namesake, "Who the Shrek are You?" You've gotta love the creative collaborations behind the awesome shades of OPI. They never cease to amaze me with their eye-popping, conversation sparking, nail candy!!!

Shrek up your nails and toes for the summer!!! Now playing in a salon near you!!!!

Jimmy Choo Does Sneakers!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so I'm not the type of girl to use the term sneakers(we from the West Coast prefer the term "tennis shoes") but going with the East coast for a minute, I must say these Sneakers are HOT!!!!! And if I were in the business of dropping $500 bucks on tennis shoes, these would quickly be part of my wardrobe! In the meantime, I will just admire from afar. Jimmy Choo, known for their very feminine, dainty heels(Auti represent) has decided to take a step in the more comfortable, athletic direction! Comfort and fashion all merged in one??? What more could a girl ask for! The summer collection launches this Summer! Check here for more details!

A Whole In One!!!!!!!!!!!

Things just keep getting better and better in the Friendship Heights area of DC. What's to come next??? Well, I was more than overjoyed at the opening of the new Whole Foods Market at Friendship Heights! Located in the new retail epicenter of The Shops at Wisconsin Place, the new addition to Chevy Chase, Maryland is filled with lots of space and tasty treats! The highlight for me...The Falafel station!!! Yum! I'm pretty new to these Mediterranean, chick pea balls, boy was I missing out! There is also a burger station, fully equipped with full-size and mini-burgers. And of course all the usual WF treats: salad bar, hot bar, pasta bar...all that's missing is a cocktail bar, but MD. doesnt permit such, so you wont find wine or beer here. Not a problem; as there are certainly other ways to get your fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop in today! Oh, and did I forget to mention the fancy conveyor belt system that carries your groceries down for you to drive up and pick up??? Gotta love that!!!!

Love At First Frost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Small. Round. Yummy!!!! Words that come to mind when I think of the decadent bite of a cupcake I devoured this Mother's Day! Frosting...A cupcakery or boutique of desserts, I call it, opened in Chevy Chase, Md. recently!!! The little slice of heaven comes with a great love story that is sure to tug at your heart-strings!

Fallen Angel!!!!!!!!!!!!

It goes without saying, we have truly lost a gem in the untimely death of the most gracious, Lena Horne.
An unbelievable talent and beauty, who just seemed to get more beautiful with age. Lena Mary Calhoun Horne, was born June 30, 1917 in Brooklyn and went on to become a celebrated screen and stage jewel in the African-American community. Activist for change, Ms. Horne participated in many movements of the 1960's, including the March on Washington! Read more about the life and contributions of Ms. Horne here.

She celebrated her last Mother's Day, May 9, 2010. She was truly one of the greats and will truly be missed.

The Long and Short Short Of It All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mini Dresses!!! As a follow up to the "short-shorts" edition, may I introduce the Mini!!! Again, great legs are not a requirement, but attitude and style are a must!! You've got the attitude, here comes the style!!! I'm loving the selection of mini-dresses featured here! The mini dress is the perfect look for a warm spring/summer day! And by far the easiest look to pull together: all you need is the right dress and a pair of ballet flats, glads(gladiator sandals) or go sky high with a fun wedge! For a night time look, pair this mini dress with a sheer hose and black pumps and your set for dinner and dancing!! This look works for all shapes and sizes!!! Forgiving and flattering, all in one!!

Out with the Long in with the Short...Mini that is!!!

Live Long and Dress Short!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
