Shock Boutique!!

I was contacted by Jill, the owner of Shock Boutique, to check out her site. I love supporting etailers, and Shock Boutique offers some super cute clothes for really great prices! I'm putting together a small shopping list now for when I get some birthday money, because all of my Christmas money went to the outlet and bills!

My fave feature is the shop by celeb feature. It features some great celebs and items that the store has that match their look in the photo or their style.

I'm really loving the zipper tees a la Kim Kardashian and Meghan Fox and the Grandpa sweater from the High School Musical gals.

Great news ladies! Jill offered a code to my readers! Enter "Thrifty" at checkout to save 25%!

Birthday Lust List

I decided to steal Bombchell's idea and create my own lust list, but since Christmas is only four days away, I'm making it my birthday lust list since it's pretty soon and I'm turning a quarter of a century- BLAH!

I've always been seen as the "good girl" and sometimes I just want to shake that image! I think this may be one way to start!

Carousel Stretch Corest and Carousel Panty from Trashy

A designer pair of shoes- Any super designer- Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Manolo, Prada, Dior..your choice lol
I'm such a shoe whore, but can I really call myself that if I don't own one of the classics?

My Beauty Diary Masks
I've been on such a skin care kick lately. The better the skin, the less make up needed!

Belts, Belts and Belts
I need to cinch my waist while I have one!

Headbands, Headbands and Headbands
I get so friggin lazy with my hair sometimes, but I still want it to look somewhat cute!

A trip to Europe..London and France have been calling my name for QUITE a while!

Clarison MIA- I want to see what all the friggin hype is about!

And finally..the biggest lust item of all, which will only be accepted from one person..........

Diamond and Sapphire Engagement Ring

This is my dream engagement ring with a platnium setting and a larger center stone. There is a very dorky and totally sweet reason why I want a sapphire in my engagement ring. One day.......

Review: Almay One Coat Triple Effect Mascara

A couple of weeks ago I picked up Almay One Coat Triple Effect Mascara to use for an every day mascara. I wear glasses 98% of the time, so I didn't want anything super dramatic- just enough to make my eyes pop a bit under my lenses.

The mascara claims to build, extend and and sculpt lashes. I don't know if it sculpts lashes, but it does extend a bit and builds them. It definitely makes a difference with my glasses on, but for those looking for a dramatic or maybe even a super noticable difference minus glasses, this is not the mascara for you.

::Please do NOT mind my brows. I usually do them Sundays, but I had a killer migraine last night. I'm getting to them tonight.::

With out Mascara

With Mascara

Price: $7-$9
Where to buy: Drugstores, Walmart, Target,
Would I buy again: Yes, it's perfect for my fellow glasses wearers

Rachel Zoe Gift Guide

I'm a subscriber to Rachel Zoe's newsletter and beyond love The Rachel Zoe Project. I'm not even put off by those drawn out words and overuse of her lingo- in fact I'm intrigued by it.

Anywho, so I love the Rachel Zoe newsletter I get in my inbox everyday. Most of the items are WAY beyond my financial reach right now, but she always includes a "Parallel Universe" which is a similar item that is a lot more affordable. For Christmas Rachel put a fab gift guide of all items under $100. Visit here!

Here are some of my fave items on the list:

50 Dresses that Changed the World- $11.70!!

I love "coffee table" books and beyond love fashion books. This sounds so interesting to me and I'm all ready trying to pick out a few- the dress on the cover obviously! Marilyn's white dress, Princess Di's wedding dress...just a few I came up with!

Miele Blanco Diagonal Stitch Tote- $79

I'm really attracted to this bag and think it would make a good work to dinner transition bag with the use of the handle and strap.

Betsey Johnson Kiss Earrings- $25

Look at them!! Need I say more?
