I don’t know about you but my favorite four letter word (hands down) is SALE. Now if that certain sale item just happens to fall under the category of fashion-all the better and if it’s something that really makes a statement… well then put down your iPad pronto and count me in. To that end I just had to share this sale going on TODAY on Haute look. Fashionable Canvas Prints from Oliver Gal are soooo fabu and stylish you might be inclined to purchase more than one..or two..or three. ENJOY!
How could I resist..
Today is National Lipstick Day. How fabulous is that! I can’t think of any other make up item that can brighten your day let alone your smile in one fell swoop. Ohhhhh how we love a great shade of lipstick.
Some interesting facts about lipstick…
1. Your lips are 100 times more sensitive than your fingers.
2. 40 percent of women wish they had softer lips.
3. Guerlain invented the first lipstick in a tube in 1870, called “Ne m’oubliez pas,” or “Forget Me Not” in French. Chic.
4. People buy the most lipstick in Miami, Portland, Ore., and Atlanta.
5. There has been a 50 percent increase in “nude lipstick” searches on Amazon this month.

There’s just something about July….
I don’t know about you but as July draws to a close I can’t help but feel a sense of Summer’s end drawing near. Now you may be thinking that I’m getting a little ahead of myself considering that the temps in Los Angeles for the last week and continuing for at least the next dew days are in the high 90′s. But there is always that ONE sure sign of Fall’s entrance just ahead. I seem to always find that first Fall footnote exactly where it should be-in the SHOE department. Yes, it seems that literally overnight one goes from eyeing the perfect summer sandal to a lux pair of leather boots. So TODAY it happened- right there smack dab in the middle of shopping I spotted Rachel Zoe’s 2014 FALL footwear collection. Once again-Fall is giving summer the boot! So what is the messege of this whole story-well actually it’s two fold.
1 Somehow the arrival of a new season always gives us something to look forward to.
2. Enjoy every moment of whatever season you are in right now.
Have a great week ahead.
