It is nothing new, but it is a fact that all fabulous people are simply obsessed with shoes, and the shoes must always be impractical. Yes your feet will hurt, but you will look and feel like the whole word is at your feet- which they are, gawking at your shoes! I am a firm believer that shoes must be THE item of your wardrobe, and the impractical the better!

Having a baby, I was tired of having to whip out my cellphone camera to capture one of his many precious moments, the resolution was rubbish and it was a serious schlep. The CA8 is the answer to my prayers. It shoots individual clips, awesome for uploading as there is no need for editing into bite sized pieces.

Ok, Im going to kick of the Fab-Find Friday feature with a couple of things. I have been looking for a moisturizer for the longest time, while I’ve been waiting for my Clinique one to run out. Last night I finally had zippo moisturizer left – and surprisingly enough on the very last drop of my Mac foundation.
So, today, I popped into Edgars to get some moisturizer and perhaps a new foundation. Although I’ve always been a fan of Marvelous Mac makeup, I’ve always wanted to try Bobbi Brown cosmetics. So, I figured ok, lets go test this place out – see how the foundation wears and decide tomorrow.
You have a big event coming up, a friend’s wedding or an awards dinner, and you need the perfect outfit. You hit the stores. You try on a series of dresses, but none of them thrills you. Some of them downplay your best features and play up your worst ones. You try on a few others that you deem just okay, but you’re not in love with any of them.
Total afro-chic awesomeness is an attitude as much as an outfit.
