Just what are those Gossip Girls wearing these days as the Gossip Girl season finale approaches? Blair opts for yellow Christian Louboutin heels paired with a green cape from Barney’s Co-Op. Jewelry by MCL will appear on both Blair on Serena, and leggings by Hue are popular with Georgina. And speaking of Georgina, she’ll be wearing a large Swarvorski ring, Coach earrings, Jones NY brown fur coat (faux I hope!), and bags by Chanel and Valentino. There’s only one look that I’m really feeling – and it’s another Blair Waldorf outfit…

I love how Blair pairs a hot pink pencil skirt with a more conservative white spring blouse. It ... Read More

Have you seen that new Lea Michele Dove commercial? She twirls in the cutest of all possible girly dresses while singing  “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. It makes me want to twirl and swirl and sing and maybe eat a pink cupcake and find a posse of men in snazzy tuxedos to dance around me.

Lindsey Ray is our Current Favorite Musical Suggestion for all Hopeful Dreamers and Lovers

Add the name “Lindsey Ray” to your musical radars. You’ve likely heard her music without realizing it. Her collaboration with Tim Myers of OneRepublic was the song behind a national ad campaign for Target commercials from 2008-2009. And you know how those Target commercials make you feel energized and like your cramped closet is just full of potential to be organized and transformed? Half the reason those commercials inspire you like that is because of the sounds paired with them. And I’m not at all surprised that they opted to use a  Lindsey Ray duet.

Her hopeful and clear voice reminds me of one you’d expect to be singing for the voice of a modern Disney Princess (they’re all hopeful heroines, after all! and I can’t wait fo ... Read More

The Pretty Fashions on ‘Gossip Girl’ Tonight

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

gossip girl fashion

Are you a Gossip Girl fan? We’ve got the official list of what those gals are wearing tonight.

Serena’s tan dress by Carlos Miele looks like she either accidentally walked by a cobweb, or she couldn’t figure where else to put her lacy hanky. Jenny’s Marchesa dress is gorgeous, but a pout doesn’t look good with any dress.  Blair saves the day in two amazing outfits that include Valentino and YSL. I really love that bright blue Foley and and Corinna bag. Click under the jump to see the full collage.

Bright Idea: Merge Your iPod Case with a Portable Speaker

Sunday, April 25th, 2010


Isn’t it a drag when you have your iPod but no speaker around? Who expects you to carry one of those larger speakers around? This is why the RockBoom Speaker iPod Case is handy. It lets you protect your iPod, and it also has a built- in speaker system so you can share your music wherever you are. I personally love it for listening to music while I’m in the shower or if I’m working outside in the garden (read: lounging and looking at flowers).

The case itself comes in black or camo, and you do need two AAA batteries. But it’s really easy to work. You just put the batteries in and put the speaker plug into your ipod. Then you flip a tiny switch and you can use your ipod as normal – adjusting sound levels and changing songs. The peaker itself is totally invisible (it’s hidden) which makes it very easy to carry around, and doubtful that anyone will steal it (if they knew what this cool thing was – they would definitely steal it). For such a small case, the sound gets pretty loud.

Katherine Heigl Accidentally Dresses like an American Girl Doll

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

katherine heigl style

Katherine Heigl was out on the red carpet for an event looking like she was inspired by none other than the American Girl Kirstin. I remember when I thought these were cool, and Samantha was my favorite. I did a book report on one of the Kirstin books called “Kirstin Saves the Day” wherein “Kirsten discovers a bee tree packed with honeycomb. She tries to bring the honey home but has to compete with a family of bears for her treasure, too!” I remember drawing her, and she wore a pale blue and white striped sundress in this book.

What’s even more alarming is that apparently they have discontinued the Kirstin Larson line from American Girl. WHAT! She was awesome! Protip? Don’t dress like an AG doll. It doesn’t work.
