Would you?

Franco couldn’t do it. Neither could Renee. Nina wouldn’t do it. But Hollywould. Make a decidedly sexy leather peep toe pump that is covered in a sensuous floral pattern. Hopefully you will join the list of people who would and do wear this shoe.

Kiss Me

Have the following lines ever been said to you?
"Kiss me! Please, just one more kiss. I really, really need one more from you!"
If not, then you haven't been using Labello UV-Alpin lip balm. This moisturizing lip balm contains shea butter and SPF 30 sunblock. But what makes it even better is that while it moisturizes your lips, it does not leave them feeling waxy, leaving you with utterly kissable lips.

A Clever Worm

The book worm always finds a way to slide in between the pages of every book we read. But then again if it didn't, how would we know where we left off? This clever wood page marker is magnetized so that it can secure itself to the pages of your book and mark the spot where you stopped reading. This is one clever item that we are truly happy to have found.

We adore Libra

Being that we try to be straight forward with our readers, we must share the following with you: we did not like Toni Braxton’s new cd Libra when we first listened to it. Initially we only found 2 songs on the disc that we wanted to hear over and over again, did not think it would be well received and we put it to the side. Then a funny thing happened, we put the disc on last week to hear one of those two songs and ended up just letting the disc play (something we NEVER do). Well since that time, this disc has been in active rotation in our listening station and we can say without a doubt WE ADORE LIBRA. Listening to the lyrics, we can share Toni is talking plainly about love and the everyday trials and tribulations that go along with it. We are truly grateful that we gave this cd a second chance as we would have missed out on a true gem. Hopefully you will be open to giving this cd a listen and let us know your thoughts about it.

Sexy Papers

"Sleek. Simple. Modern. And very sexy." This is how Carta describes their Roma line of journals. Not necessarily what one would associate with a notebook but once we saw it, we had to revise our opinion. The smooth cover and silver gilded edges entice one to want to write down anything just to use the journal. And while we can't say what we are writing in our journal, know that we are immensely pleased with it in every way!

Miss Sophia!

Just the other day we were strolling through one of our favorite style emporiums when we came across a dress from a designer we had never heard of before. Seems that this young designer has been around for a few seasons but this was the first time we had ever seen any of her work. Well we do not want to keep her a secret any longer. Check out the dress that did it for us from Sophia Kokosalaki - a name you don't want to forget! (Thanks to our friends from romanFrance for providing us with the photograph.)

Enough said

While it has been around forever and is a staple for many people, we don't want to ignore it or not give it the proper respect it is so deserving of. So we will go on the record and state Kielhl's Creme de Corps is the ultimate all-over body moisturizer! Enough said.

Power! If we are honest with ourselves, we all want it. In some shape, form or fashion, we all desire the power to do something. Be it at work, in our personal lives, or in our community, we all crave the power to transform something. Sadly, we haven't discovered a magic potion that grants us the power to do those things. But what we have discovered is a ring that can help one feel more powerful on the inside. The power ring from Diane von Furstenberg by H. Stern is a brushed yellow gold ring whose shape is inspired by the cut of a diamond. Its bold size commands attention to the wearer's hand. And while the ring does not hold any special abilities per se, it does give the possessor a feeling of inner confidence that is projected for all of the world to see. And that, my friends, is half of the mystique of having power. The other half you will have to discover on your own!

Attention Francophiles

How would you like to go to France? If you answered in the affirmative, we have some great news to share with you, we would like to go also! BUT, as it does not look like we will set foot on the Champs-Elysées today, we will fill our longing with this sweater comprised of a mélange of subtle colors from French Connection. Hopefully this will sustain our longing until our feet reach the city of lights.

It’s sheik, it’s subtle, it’s classic. We can’t be talking about anything other than the intermezzo hobo from Bottega Veneta. What’s better, it has been updated with an unassuming floral print embossed on the leather. So while we can call it a lot of things, it’s never called out of style!
