Song of the Week

I have heard this song for a while on my Pandora, and I love it. The singer's stage name is September, a Swedish pop star who I guess has been pretty successful back in Europe. All I know is this song is perfect for time on the Elliptical machine.

Celebrity Style File- Beyonce

I should be writing a five page article that is due tomorrow, but I just cannot get into it right now. Instead, I threw on my iPod and thought about writing a blog for this week. I just watched the Thanksgiving special that was on for Beyonce "I am...Yours" and I was really thinking about how I love her style. She is just one of my personal fave celebrities who not only looks great but serves as a great role models for girls of all ages.

I don't know about you, but I don't have the paycheck of a celebrity. Instead, I need to find cute clothes in retail stores that the average person could afford. Here are a few of Beyonce's outfits that I like, as well as the less-expensive counterparts that anyone can find.

Forever 21 $27

Steve Madden $50


ModCloth $65


Target $15

Banana Republic $152

Song of the Week

I have loved this song since the minute I heard it. I have always been a fan of Alicia Keys and Jay Z, and add in that equation a song about New York City and I am in love! This song makes me want to pack up a U-Haul and get on my way already!

2009 American Music Awards

So I just sat through three hours of the American Music Awards, and I can sum it up in about one word:


Janet Jackson opened the show, and I know she is way popular but this is the second award show she opened up in a matter of months. I can't help but think that if Michael Jackson hadn't passed away if she would still be out there with this much exposure. Her outfit was a MESS. She needs to fire her stylist...PRONTO.

Who is this you ask? No, it's not Lady Gaga although it appears they are sharing clothes out of the same closet. It's Bobby Trendy. Yea, no one else knows who he is. I happen to remember him from Anna Nicole's show on E! years ago. That's where he should have stayed.

Adam, Adam, Adam. There is nothing else to say about this guy! Aside from the shock value during his performance, I have no interest in him or his music. Lame! He should have stayed on Broadway with his theatrics. 

Can someone tell me where Shakira is? I LOVE her, but I am not a big fan of this new music or her performances. Please, Shakira we liked you the way you were. No need to morph into a raunchy pop star to get already have us!

One of my fave songs of the night were Kelly Clarkson. I am not into her new music after the last few CDs were overplayed beyond necessity. She sounded great live and the song was really nice. She needs to get a new dress though, this one is not flattering at all.

I am thinking of starting a Sunday posting of my fave songs of the week...Sound like a good idea? Since I am always listening to Pandora or XM there is such an awesome blend of songs from different genres! If you have any cool songs, let me know!

This week is Bad Romance by Lady Gaga...LOVE this song right now!

The other day, the hubby and I went to the mall to window shop, get some ideas for Christmas gifts for each other and look at the decorations. I love the holiday season, and I am really excited to have my first white Christmas; however, I have this feeling Colorado will have a heat wave and there will be no snow. Weird, I know but that's just how my life goes.

So, we went into Victoria's Secret to check out the goods, and I was admiring all of the PINK items: velour suits, t-shirts and loung-y pants. As we left, I was telling Rudolph that I especially loved the PINK line because it was practical, cute and comfy. Just as I finished describing the line to the guy who just looked at them, he said, "Yea, it's kinda like loung-erie" What kind of genius hubby do I have? That was brillant.

While I like lingerie, there is a time and a place for it. On the other hand, the PINK line allows me to be cozy, comfy, yet still cute for the rest of the day. Here are some cute goods I think should be under the tree come December 25th:




$34.50 - $39.50

Relaxing those Feet!

The other day, I was writing an article on foot detox spa treatments when I came across an AWESOME site for home pedicure soaks. Now, I told you before that I loved trying things made from natural products, and being flip flop queen I need to keep my feet looking good!

Going to the spa is not always easy or cheap, so doing your own foot spa treatments is perfect for those days you want to relax but not leave the house. I came across one recipe in particular that has simple items meant to leave skin feeling soft.

Skin Softening Soak

2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 cup of Milk
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup lemon juice

Mix all of these ingredients together and soak your feet as long as you want to! I will be trying this recipe tonight since it has been awhile since I have done any relaxing..

If you have tired feet (and I know what heels do to our feet) a great recipe is to mix sea salt with warm water and soak them. The salt will relax the feet to get rid of that achy feeling. You can find sea salt anywhere...Target, Sephora, even a drug store...Epsom Salt is found everywhere as well, and is especially used for relaxing muscle aches after a workout.

For a Foot Relaxing Soak

1/2 Sea Salt or Epsom Salt
Enough water to cover the feet

Mix warm water and the salt to create the soak and then relax the feet as long as you want. To use an Epsom salt bath after a workout, just mix one cup in a tub filled with water. 

Like to buy products? Here are some great products to try from my fave store Bath & Body Works:

Stress Relief- Tranquil Mint 

Footloose & Fancy Fizz Bubbly Foot Bath

These Boots are made for Walking

I have officially survived my first snowstorm here in Denver, but my shoes are not made for walking in the snow. I LOVE my Coach shoes…think Vans but with little silver ‘C’s all over them and fur on the inside. Yes, my uber-comfy shoes were perfect, until I had to run an errand in two feet of snow. Soaked is what they were, and sliding around is what I did.

Now, I am looking around for the perfect boots that can get me where I am going without broken bones, yet do not look like I raided a tire store and threw something on my feet. I was looking around at Target, and I found some cute rain galoshes. Now, my mother made me wear galoshes when I was in elementary school..when NO one wore them. I was mortified to be the only kid showing up to school dry. Lame, I know. So now that I am 20-something, I want to re-visit the galosh look.

Target $25

I am all about comfort. It probably explains why the shoes in constant rotation are either slippers or flip-flops, but now I see that where there is cold weather.. there are boots. Here are some other cute styles I like, yet still look pretty comfy..

Nine West $129
Car Shoe $610 (steep I know)

Chinese Laundry $ 99

Coach $478 (hint hint honey!)

Naughty Monkey $90
