Nailed It!

A couple of nail-art inspiration pics from the spring runways.  I think this elegant "moon mani" would be pretty simple to pull off at home provided one has the proper tools...

I'll be adding this to my fall beauty shopping list:

Sally Hansen Nail Art - Pen, Black - 1 ea
Sally Hansen black nail art pen $7

and this:
Going Nude, Eh? Nail Colour
OPI "Going nude, eh?" $9

P.S. I love the numbers scrawled on her ring finger, it's like a secret code!

Velvet has seen its share of fashionable moments in the past (remember the 90's?)

And now it is back on trend for this fall.  For Moms (expectant and otherwise) who wish to adopt the trend, here are a few stylish suggestions. 

Mix velvet into your wardrobe sparingly, wearing one piece at a time.  This cardi would be great for day over skinny jeans and a tank, or dressed up for evening over a LBD.

These leggings are a comfy interpretation of the trend and are easy to mix in under dresses and tunics.

Hair Envy

While I am completely smitten with Alexa Chung's recently released collection for Madewell ... is her hair style in the ads that has me mesmerized.  It seems so effortlessly 70's autumn glam, all tousled and perfect looking.  I'm still lacking a few inches of length to pull it off properly, but it is definitely my hair inspiration this season!

Pretty Printed Products

Today I stumbled across the Erin Condren website via One Kings Lane.  What a delicious array of candy colored printed paper products!  Every modern mom needs an arsenal of awesome stationary at her disposal; whether to jot down a last minute birthday greeting or send a timely thank you note.  I find that if I have cool paper products these "chores" are much more fun!

Rain, Rain....

Dallas is underwater and in honor of the flood we'll discuss rain boots today.  I was a teeny bit excited to bring out my boots for the first time this season-even if it was just to visit the pediatrician!  Rain boots may be something you don't wear often (depending on your geographic location) but when it does rain it is nice to have a go-to pair to pull out of the closet.  Stella got her first pair of rain boots last week and has worn them every day since then.

Check out my Mommy and Mini guide to the hottest rain boot trends this season:


La Canadienne Pully Boot $160                                                     Lands End Kids Wellie $28


      Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2010                              L.L.  Bean Kids Duck Boots


UO Printed Rainboots $48                                      Hatley Kids Boots $18

Enjoy your rainy days!
