Red carpet Manicure

I couldn’t sleep last nite and I saw an informercial on Red Carpet Manicure. It is an at-home gel nail kit. The manicure is said to dry quickly and last up to two weeks. The cost was two payments of $39.99 + S&H. The kit is also sold at Ulta (the basic starter kit is $59.99). Please leave a comment if you have tried this manicure brand.

LCN Crocodile Nail Polish

I was at the beauty shop yesterday reading shape magazine (April 2012 issue) while I waited to get my hair done, and I noticed an ad about the LCN croc nail polish-the color featured is Rescue Red. I thought it was really beautiful. I had never seen this style before. I think it would be a nice alternative to change things up when if you get tired of the crackle polish. I love it and will def try it soon and give a review. What do you guys think?


Yard sale finds

These are a couple of tops I found at a yard sale this past weekend. They were $1 each. I love butterflies  so I had to get the one on the left. The purple striped top has a cute cutout in the back-it will be great for summer. To see more of what I got ck out my yard sale haul on youtube channel bgwalking1. Here’s the link:

Your Style Journey

I can’t stop wearing this fringe bag! It’s fun, a perfect size to use daily and is such a great color that matches most anything. I own two other white bags, a Versace hobo and a Bottega Veneta clutch but when I wear those I gotta be honest, I worry  that they’ll get dirty and with a bag this affordable there are NO worries at all! I included this bag in a fringe post that I did a while back but after much use…..I’ve decided it’s my favorite bag…..until the next one comes along;)  So far I’ve worn it with  a t-shirt and jeans and some Spring dresses . I usually wear it with the shoulder strap, but I have recently tucked the strap in the bag and have worn it as an oversized day clutch, SO CUTE! I also realized when I wear it as a clutch, it…

Ck out miss renaissance!

Happy Friday, Lovelies!! A bunch of you have asked me to do a “What’s in your Bag” Post….so I finally decided to spill (pun definitely intended) the beans on what I lug around with me on a daily basis. It’s funny how women are curiously fascinated with what other women carry in their purses, while men tend to be slightly terrified by said contents of women’s purses…odd social study material, dare I say. I may have arranged the above items in a way that makes them pleasing to the eye, but believe me, they were all truly floating around in my bag, no staging here. Sooo…I showed you mine – now it’s your turn! What’s in YOUR bag??

Ck out polish you pretty


We wanted to add some bright shades to our tips, so we used a fresh sorbet palette (mmm, instant craving). We love taking a simple look and playing around with different colours on each nail to creating varying patterns vs. picking one and sticking with it – hey, sometimes we’re indecisive. Behold, our summer sorbet overlapping mani!

Step 1: After applying a base coat (CND – Toughen Up) paint each finger a different colour: Essie – Mod Squad, Sally Hansen – Sunkissed, Misa – Be My Valentine & a new (to us) brand – Nail the B.Y.T.C.H – Not Ya Honey! Honey! Nail the B.Y.T.C.H not only has an amazing name (standing for “be your true creative heroine”), but has beautiful shades with cute cheeky names. Not Ya Honey! Honey! is a smooth bright yellow shade & applied evenly with 2 coats. See more polishes here!

Step 2: Starting on your first…
