NY Fashion Week 2012 - Louis Vuitton

Who has not wanted to have a luxury piece of Louis Vuitton in their closet? I would think every woman in America and beyond! Rightfully so, might I add. The designer label, Louis Vuitton, is known for their huge collections in apparel,watches,jewelry, home,and,of course,luggage. But, did you know that the very first Louis Vuitton store front was opened in Paris in 1854? It is amazing that til this day, some 158 years later, this fashion icon is still moving strong without having missed a beat! Another side note to add, did you know Marc Jacobs has also been designing for Louis Vuitton since the late '90's? Interesting...

Get The Look: Smoked Eyes by Hard Candy

Hard Candy

This morning after taking Lil Diva to the bus stop, I made my way to Walmart. While in the retail store I walked through the cosmetics aisle. I really was not looking for anything in specific, but I came across Hard Candys' makeup display. After browsing the collection, I noticed that they have this little booklet called: Get The Look!

I looked at it briefly. In the inside of the booklet, Hard Candy has 4 styles of eye makeup: Smokey Eyes, Glam-our Eyes, Cat Eyes, and Glitter Eyes.

Of all the makeup out there, I love to play-up my eyes with fun, funky but stylish eye-shadows. My favorite eye looks are smokey, cat and glam-our. I found the tips to be quite helpful, especially for those who are not quite sure how to achieve these eye looks. Which is the exact reason why I chose to share them with you in four (4) individual posts.

Today it's all about the Smokey Eyes:

Hard Candy Tip:

1.Using Kaleyedescope in Bad Reputation, apply a dark shade along the lash line and blend up to the outside corner of the lid. Add a highlighter shade just below the brow bone and to the inner corners of the eye for a brightened effect.

2. Apply Walk the Line liquid eyeliner along the upper and lower lash line.

3. To complete the smoked look, apply Ginormous Mascara in Black Out  to upper lashes.

Stay tuned for our next post in this mini-series of "Get the Look via Hard Candy" where we will be sharing tips for the Glam-our Eyes Look.

JCP: Fair and Square

As if we didn't love spending some of our hard earned money at JCPenny, they have revamped their marketing. Now we don't have to worry about missing a sale, expiring coupons, or being hassled when we have to return an item.

I am, of course, super excited about this change. I was never much of a fan of JCPenny as a young adult, however, now as a wife, mother, and a wiser shopper, JCPenny has become on of my favorites. I can always shop there for my daughter, my husband, or anything for the home,always sure that I will find great savings.

How about you? Are you excited about the NEW changes to JCPenny? Do you plan to go shopping today, or are you waiting for the masses to "die down" before going?

We Love Wu! Jason Wu for Target That Is!

Have you heard the latest news happening at Target this month? If not, I have only one question for you: "where the H-E-double-L have you been hiding?"

During the past few months, Target has made changes to the types of apparel they are marketing to us, the consumers. If I say so myself, these changes were well over due and are much appreciated!

One of the NEW designer fashions seen recently was the introduction of the Missoni line. Once the Missoni pieces hit their racks, Target stores were flooded with shoppers, their online store site crashed several times, not to mention, Missoni pieces were completely SOLD OUT within the beginning hours of the introduction sale!

Unfortunately, I was among those who were left out in the dust to rot. I tried logging into my Target online account: NO MISSONI. Drove to my favorite Target store, which is less that a mile from our condo, NADA MISSONI. EVERYTHING WAS GONE!

Well, this may happen to me once BUT it is not going to happen to me twice!

On February 5th, which is only 4 days away, Target will now introduce us to the styling wisdom of Jason Wu. According to Targets' advertising, Jason Wu apparel, "signature are clean lines ans smart details."

To give us an idea, look at these pieces:

If you like these pieces, then this Sunday, February 5th, try to make your way to a Target near you, or if fighting the masses is not your thing, then shop Jason Wu online.

Now, what are you going to do this Sunday? Are you going to shop Jason Wu in store or online?
