Belle's Weekly Reading: Volume IV
May 21, 2010
The Rainbow Connection. My birthday is coming up, and I can think of no better way to celebrate(?) the long, precipitous drop toward 30 than with a rainbow birthday cake. Seriously, how awesome is this cake?
Summer Lovin’. I suppose, given my advancing age, I should jump back into the dating pool. If only because it will make my Father stop asking me when I’m going to “find a man.” This means that I need to start stocking my closet with dresses. Thank goodness that Elle magazine has compiled a list of stylish dresses in a many shapes, styles and price points to keep every woman looking fabulous this summer.
In the Mood. In junior high, I was obsessed with this fifty-cent mood ring that I won at the carnival. I wore the bauble until it turned my finger green and had to be trashed. If you too are a fan of this psychedelic trend, a nail polish company has produced a lacquer that changes color based on body temperature just like a mood ring. And while it might be a better indicator of how your Boss feels about air conditioning (my office is pro-AC to the point of frigid), the color changing lacquer is certainly a cute idea.
Leaving on a Jet Plane. I have been searching all spring for the perfect pair of aviators to wear this summer, but I still haven’t found the perfect pair. But Makeda’s Glamazon Diaries piece about the hot new looks from Ray-Ban certainly have me considering a pair of classic gold frames.
Think Market. Planning to do a little flea market shopping this summer? The Glamourai has a handy guide for what essentials you need to make your shopping day a success while you look like the most stylish shopper on Earth.
Beautiful Girl. Wit & Whimsy has an interview with Beauty BFF host Jenn Fallik about how she broke into the beauty biz and a list of her makeup essentials. She’s super cute, and I love the hot pink lipstick!
