I love shoes, I mean really, love shoes like most women right? but these killer Nine West 70's Platforms are the joint! I love the two tone color pattern and I like the fact that they have a chunkier heel which means comfort to me. I can see these being worn with a summer dress or a cute pair of jeans cuffed with a great tee and jacket. Anyway you work these hot little numbers I guarantee you come up a winner. Note to self add Nine West 70's platforms to my must have list for summer. It is important that you find a great shoe for this summer that you love and are comfortable. When searching for that great pair of shoes make sure they have some color stay away form the basic black and white if possible and get a hot shoe that speaks to your style.
Got your eyes on a cute pair of shoes this spring ? let me know what are some of your favorite shops for shoes.

Hey everybody, hope all had a great weekend it seems they fly by faster every week, the saga continues with my quest for that darn iPad 2 so I think I'll just stick with the original. I am currently doing well on my quest to a healthier me however I really need to get back into the gym I'm taking it one day at a time and enjoying the process along the way. I wanted to share with you all today one of my favorite skincare products it's by Iman Cosmetics and it really works it's the Time Control Liquid Assets Gentle Foaming Cleanser and this stuff is great for taking off your make up and leaving your skin nice and refreshed, one of the many things I like about this product is the foam action you put a little on your face, rub it in, and wash it off, it's that simple and you can do this everyday without harming your skin. Since I've started using this product my skin has drastically improved and it's a daily part of my skincare routine now if I can just throw in the 6-8 hours a sleep a night I'd be on to something (smile) What's your favorite skincare product?

Happy Friday ! I am so excited I can hardly contain myself and why all the fuss, I'm glad you asked I have been waiting for Apple's release of the ipad 2 for months, I have talked about it to everyone and anyone with ears. My husband is to the point if anyone starts to say something and it seems as if it starts with and I, he starts shaking and breaking out in sweats that's just how much I've been talking about it. Today at 5 pm the ipad 2 goes on sale I could not be happier and my husband can't either. I may just wait until next week when all of the apple junkies have fed their obsession before the hubs and I venture out for mine. I don't know what this obsession I seem to be having with Gucci lately but their ipad case is the Hot! I have to have this case simply because I think it's extraordinary. Have a great weekend see ya Monday!

I am a jewelry girl without a shadow of a doubt, I am crazy without a watch, at least two rings and some sort of bracelet on my wrist everyday. I love it, I think the right pieces simply make an outfit and the wrong pieces can destroy a look . Take a look at these scrumptious, sexy, just enough pieces from Gucci how cute is this set I simply coined the 2pc snack (all my chicken lovers get that) the perfect set for a nice girls night out with jeans a cute top and blazer or take in the office with a classy suit. This is on my want list for real it's simply finger licking good. How would you rock this set?

I was a little hesitant about posting this but decided at the last minute why not. I recently had a birthday and I promised myself that If God allowed me another year of life I would really take better care of myself, now I know you're probably thinking what is she talking about well you know how we dress everything up on the outside and lose focus on eating right exercising as we should and neglect to take the time of our skin, I mean really take care of yourself from the inside out. Well I started my journey today and I want to stick with it and Lord knows I can certainly drink water, so today's post is more of an announcement I guess you could say to a healthier me. Stay tuned for the journey from time to time I'll throw in a post to let you know how I'm doing ........Here I go.

This week's Friend Friday questions were a no brainer you know how we girls love ourselves some beauty products and this week Katy from Modly Chic has Beauty products as the topic here's what I had to say.
1. What's your favorite drug store makeup product and your favorite higher-end product?
IMAN COSMETICS - Second to None Cream to Powder this gives me that flawless looking skin I purchased this one day when I couldn’t make it to the mall to the MAC counter and I was pleasantly surprised. It can be found in certain Walgreen’s, Ulta, Target aw well as other select retailers and the great part about this product is it only cost $14.99
2. Is there one type of product that is your go-to, can't live without?
Yes, I can not live without Burt’s Bees replenishing lip Balm with pomegranate oil, I tend to gets those irritating cracks on the sides of my lips and this is the only product I have found that actually helps. I love this stuff.
3. What's the best hair product you've ever used?
Foam Wrap-Set Lotion leaves my hair nice and soft and very easy to manage
4. Fess up, what's the worst beauty look you've tried to rock and look back at now with a little shame or apprehension that you actually did that?
At home false eyelashes, I tried them several years ago when they were all the rage. I went out one night with a few friends and let’s just say when I made it back home I looked like a hot mess, Lesson learned false lashes for me…see a professional.
5. When it comes to beauty products, we all use the same basic products. What do you use that helps show off your personal flare and personality?
I never leave home without mascara and lipstick/gloss these are my staples like most girls and I always feel my best with these two items.
Now that you know a few of my favorite beauty products, what's yours?
If you would like to be apart of Friend Friday contact Katy Modly Chic for more details.

It's rare I post celebrity fashions but there are times when a girl needs to make an exception and this is one of them. I love Jennifer Hudson's look for the 2011 Oscars she looks so well put together her hairstyle fits perfectly with this gorgeous Versace silk gown she looks confident and flawless. It's definitely a "New dawn, a New day" can't you just hear her belting that from her repetitive Weight Watchers commercial.. yeah! go J-HUD do the darn thang!!

Yes, I did take a few days off for my birthday..Yeah! and I had a lovely birthday I might add thanks to my loving family. Now on to Tea Time Tuesday's . I am in love with this canvas tote from Thursday Friday it's a lightweight canvas tote emblazoned with an image of the Hermes Birkin from every angle (the bottom even has little studded feet printed on!) and are in such high demand that there's been a three month wait list but the great thing about these totes are the price $35 unlike the $5,000 price tag on the Birkin. This is a great way to maximize your style while toting your items with style. This bag is extraordinary and I'm waiting for my order to arrive, but until it arrives check out this plastic tote I purchased in Ross the other day(gotta love Ross) it's a green purse printed on the front and a yellow purse printed on the back and it was only $2.99 tell me ladies what do you think about these totes, ordinary of extraordinary? I want to know.
Thursday Friday Canvas bag $35 Ross find $2.99
