Beat Boxin & Bee-Boppin

"The way we get loose, we move our shoulders. Forward. Heads Back. Get in control like Janet Jack." In a world totally immersed with Ob-illary {Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton} and the possible threat of a recession, now really isn't the time to be uber extravagant and splurge on anything. Well if we are headed towards a recession it likely that we will turn to our music to get us through. So why is it we've spent so much time customizing our coveted iPods {which have taken over the world BTW} and not anything else that comes with them? Content are we with the standard white ear buds that come inside the package and the white cloth case. Since we spent the time to say whether we want a Nano or Touch, I feel that would should take the time and say, "Can I get Studded headphones with that, oh and that fly case too?"

Welcome to the world according to Lexie H :)

Just Gotta Have "Em!"

You know the pair of shoes you just gotta have? The ones you saw who-knows-where that just won't get out of your head. You know the ones you were describing to your girlfriend but you couldn't get it right so you going to have to take her to see them? The ones that just might be worth being late on the lease for. Here are four pair that I just can't get out of my mind. I saw them only yesterday but they are still with me. I meditated and after I got Zen I knew I had to get these shoes!

I think I have gone to heaven three times! It was like the celestial choir started singing and I could hear someone say, "This is your shoe. The two of you were meant to be together."

Now we all have got a pair of shoes that you just lose your cool about. I feel like my neighbors little boy did when he just laid down in the middle of the floor and said, "I WANT IT!, I WANT IT!, I WANT IT!" And I want it now!

Now this IS NOT your ordinary shoe. This is a shoe that I'd keep under lock and key! For me only! NOT MY PROBLEM---is what I'd be telling anybody close to me with an excuse to borrow my shoes!

Perfect Spring/ Summer Nail Hues


They're at it again. {And you thought they wouldn't be} MAC is back with a new hott fire collection coming out in May. The collection will be called Neo Sci Fi, but that's not why I am bringing this up right now. It's the time of year when everyone is dumping their Chanel Blue Satin and Dior Midnight Poison & Poison Blue shades for something a little more lighthearted. Something geared a little more towards the birth of renewal, translation, Spring. Ironically, the MAC powerhouse has the perfect prescription. All four nail colors that will be featured in the Neo Sci Fi collection are perfect for spring {and summer}

The Four Colors Are:
  • Phosphor {Bumblebee Yellow}
  • Neon 8 {Orange with Orange Pearl}
  • Plasma Blu {Turquoise Blue with White Pearl}
  • Metalist {Brown with White Pearl}

However, I understand that sometimes waiting a whole month for something hot to hit the shelves in store can be a bit too much too bear. So in light of that, here are some alternatives until the funky flyy colors hit:

Opi Nail Color in DS Jewel (Pictured Left) & DS Treasure
Nars in Domiva
Sephora Brand Nail Polish in Iridescent Rosy Copper

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in Marine Scene (Pictured Left) and Crushed Frost
Sephora Nail Lacquer in Mangue, Curacoa, Mrytelle

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren's Spring 2008 Collection, a campaign was created to compliment the preppy-chic look that’s taking over the fashion world by storm. To raise intrigue over the collection, the fashion house has released a series of how-to videos, such as How to Tie a Bow Tie, How to Layer, and How to Cuff your Pants. They’ve even launched their own Rugby video channel on YouTube.
RL offers both men and women’s wear, the pieces bringing to mind images of private schools and riding gear. For the men, the palette is toned down a little, but for the ladies, the more vibrant, the better!
Joining designers like Andre 3000, whose new line Benjamin Bixby mixes the quirky yet put-together, Ralph Lauren’s collection includes tailored pieces like shrunken blazers and vests as well as high-waisted trousers (there are a lot of mixed feelings about those!), madras, bow-ties and suspenders.
If you’re ready to channel Annie Hall, then take a browse through the collection and examine the print campaigns to find out how even women can look adorable in menswear inspired looks. Trousers held up by suspenders become Indiana-Jones chic when paired with a pale Fedora. (ralphlauren)
