Favorite Trends for Spring
Am finding myself in the midst of déjà vu moments of late. Which, as a general rule is a good thing according to my granny. She always said that experiencing déjà vu meant that you were on the right track in life and were on your way to fulfilling your destiny. Which is how I knew with absolute certainty that these new strappy sandals were meant to be mine; an immediate and almost spiritual connection when I slipped my feet into the soft supple leather. That and the fact that they were exactly what I needed to complete my stylish weekend ensemble. Any accessory that bridges the path from day to evening is meant to be, especially if that item happens to be budget friendly! Same rule applies to jackets, jeans, skirts and tops. And handbags. (Handbags are NOT accessories, they are necessities!)
Anyhoo, was feeling pretty perky, having snapped up those new sandals, as well as a great duffle for upcoming weekend getaways. Had also secured a major find with this fabulously design savvy pen, which will make the perfect and most unique gift for so many of my family, friends and business associates/higher-ups (as well as score me major brownies points with said business associates/higher-ups, at which time they will realize that my thoughtfulness and ability to scout out the truly exceptional and distinct is a trait worthy of immediate reward in the form of career promotion, higher pay and a corner office). But I digress. Where was I? Oh yes, feeling perky. So there I was, strolling confidently down the sidewalk when I caught a glimpse of myself reflected in a shop window. Normally, when this occurs, I pretend that said reflection is a complete stranger who I am about to have the pleasure of meeting and this is where the voices in my mind take over:
"Just look at that strikingly gorgeous and confident young woman! What a fabulous sense of style she has in her chic designer jeans
and schoolboy blazer
. And that glossy hair! She must be a Pantene model—how divine.Oh my goodness, look at that! She has the exact same handbag
as me! And the same wedges
! Oh, she's headed right toward me..."
Usually at this point I am able to rein in my imagination before I start a conversation with myself. Unfortunately, today's shop-window-reflection reaction was a different story altogether:
"Wait a minute, where did this navy blazer
come from? I know
I put the black one on this morning (note to self: replace lightbulb in closet). And what's with this skirt? Not only does the black look so very wrong with the navy blazer but did it shrink? Again? (I look like a sausage; should have dug the Spanx
out of the hamper. Again.) Yikes, my hair has a life of its own in this humidity. It is definitely time for a good deep condition
and a trim. Better book a mani/pedi too; my cuticles look like gnarly fish scales. And what was I thinking with the sunless tanner? So much for the golden glow—looks more like a nasty bout of hepatitis. NEVER use last year's leftovers. I've got to get out of here before someone I know sees me…"
Too late, for as I was skulking back to my car I ran headlong into one of the higher-ups from the office. I don't think she recognized me, what with all of the shopping bags and shoe boxes flying through the air, and as she scrambled on all fours to retrieve her Jimmy Choos and Prada I was able to make a quick getaway.
Whew! After such a harrowing experience I have decided that the best course of action for restoring my usual composure, serenity and impeccable sense of style is the standard raindrops-on-roses-and-whiskers-on-kittens approach (as well as the purging of all things chocolate from my condo to counteract perceived sausageness). So here you go girls:
She She's Favorite Things for Spring:
My always-look-hot-in-these jeans
. The one pair of jeans that seems to be a little more forgiving of that last Krispy Kreme (or two). Not to mention to chocolate bunnies now sitting on my pantry shelf.
Burberry Body perfume. I adore this scent — fresh, clean and elegant all at once. Makes me feel posh, pampered and ready for my close-up.
- Lady-like lace. Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge wore that gorgeous navy lace dress I've been on the hunt for the perfect little lace number! Luckily, lace is very haute this spring, and the choices are endless.
Fabulous flirty skirt
. There is nothing like a great skirt to put a girl in the mood for spring!
- LAVANILA's Pure Vanilla Luxury Set. I adore each and every product in this fabulous gift set.
LAVANILA carefully infuses pure essential oils with 100 percent active botanicals for natural fragrances that are fresh, clean, and nurturing, and I love they way they make my skin so soft!
Luscious ligloss. My fave for spring is tarte's maracuja diving shine lip gloss in tipsy (coral)
. Not only do you get gorgeous color with a great shine boost, but your lips are hydrated and moisturized while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,, which gives lips a fuller, plumped-up appearance.
- Mama Mio's Get Waisted. This is the holy grail of slimming potions; packed with NINE well proven ingredients designed to help combat fat deposits, tighten your tum, reduce puffiness, and – most importantly – maximise lipolysis.
Lipolysis is the way your body breaks down the fat stored in fat cells; giving you slim fat cells and a slimmer silhouette. Get Waisted’s ingredients are well proven in lab tests to dramatically increase the destruction of fat.
Well dearest girls, there is nothing quite like happy thoughts to put the sparkle back in my eye and a spring in my step. I do, however, think that I will take a bit more time on my wardrobe selection before hitting the shops again (I am sooo going to ditch the sausage skirt!)
Shop smart, stay happy and smile pretty!

Get a Better Body Out of a Bottle!
With only 30% of Americans feeling happy in a bikini and many considering their need for some tummy tightening*, it’s no surprise that Mama Mio has seen a 55% rise in sales of its miracle ab-rehab cream Get Waisted. Celebrity fans, including super-diva Christina Aguilera, can’t get enough of Get Waisted’s waist-whittling powers – and stomach-conscious women are seemingly seeing the same effects with one bottle selling every 45 seconds worldwide (and no personal trainer in sight!)
In a recent Daily Mail (a leading daily newspaper in the UK) feature, Mama Mio Get Waisted received a rave review for reducing the waist and hips by an inch.
Consumer tester Amy Finlayson, 32, can attest to the powers of this body shaper in a bottle. In just one week her stomach was noticeably flatter, smoother and more toned and after a full four week trial, a full inch had been taken off her waist AND hips. Fitness expert, Dani Mears, confirmed the results, saying “I used a caliper to see if Amy has lost weight on her stomach. Incredibly, after the four-week period she had lost an inch from her waist and an inch from her hips.”
