I’m Baaaccckkk…4 good

Hello to those of you still checking in, and those who will view going forward.  I know no posts in 5 months, terrible.  I have truly been swamped with life, and can finally see some light emerging so that I can restart my blog.  Actually this time away has inspired me to become more serious and active.  I will release a posting schedule this week.  And I’m on the look out for more traffic and exposure.  Hang out, enjoy the journey because it’s about to get really interesting in here.

Candy Like

I love these sandals. I was lucky enough to nab these on the clearance at H&M for 10.00 they were originally 49.99.

They remind me of old school Candies–hence the title.

The polish is a mint color from one of the H&M mini polish sets.

A Wedge of Gold

These wedges I purchased last year on clearance for a whopping 12.99!

They are Dolce Vita for Target. Very comfortable, very stylish!

Chocolates and Lace

This outfit is comprised of one of my fave peices, a pink lace top with puffy sleeves that I bought from The Limited a while back. The chocolate pants are linen and from JCPenney also an older purchase.

 

Enjoy….

 

American Gangster

I love Jay-Z! Always have.  I was preparing for a garage sale this weekend, and going through old cd’s and junk.  I refused to repurchase my American Gangster CD, because I knew I owned 2 of them already, I just could not find them.  I finally found them going through all of my junk.  I listened to it today, and now I remember, American Gangster was way before it’s time.  The music is so relevant to today, he should re-release it, and sell another milli!

Track after track of genius work, what will we do, if Jay decides to go be a stay at home dad???

 

Enjoy.

Pixie Dislikes 2012

I have two products that I gave the old college try, last month.  Neither of them worked for me!

1.  GHD Thermal Protector for Normal/Fine Hair

First off, I don’t have Normal or Fine Hair!  But this product, which I got free from Sephora, made my hair hard and dry.  It has alcohol as the 2nd ingredient so that should have been a clue.  It smells of alcohol and feels like hair spritz.  I can’t use this on my hair!!

 

2.  Ultra Sheen Supreme Super Smooth & Hold Flat Iron Spray

Some one on Long Hair Care Forum gave this code for a freebie, I said what the hey, its free right?  Well once again, it didn’t work for my hair.  It had the same effect as the GHD, alcohol, dry, hard hair.

If you would like to try them, subscribe, and leave a comment.  The first person to do so, will have them mailed to their address.  It’s worth a try, they may work for you!
