Happy Saturday my friends..A new month has begun. About 70 days left until Halloween! I love the Fall and I love Halloween! We still have a bit of warm weather left so don’t fret. Yet. This week I have a few fun things to share with you..
A few weeks ago the lovely ERICA from CAFE FASHIONISTA sent me an email telling me I had won a contest on her blog. Seeing as how it was a Rafflecopter pick I am shocked! I am still convinced “RC” does NOT like me. I have a lot of conspiracy theories BTW..Just ignore them..Back to the contest..You all MUST check her out! NOW! She has a TON of awesome fashion/beauty tidbits posted daily & she is helping this “Plain Jane” Slooowly transform into a not so “Plain Jane”. I stalk her INSTAGRAM daily too.

Last week my neighbor/friend Sophie and I go out to eat & she has an arm of cool charmed bangles. I fall in envious love with them. They are by “Alex & Ani” I rush home to buy them..Well, at anywhere from 25$-1,000$ EACH my admiration would have to be from afar. I remember ETSY! After an EXHAUSTIVE search I find these beauties! They are “Alex & Ani” CLONES! I got my first 5 in “Russian Silver” the other choice is “Russian Gold”. Each one has a charm that means something special to the wearer. My ETSY “connect” has a lot of cool, symbolic, charms too BTW. If you covet the “Alex & Ani” look BUT not the price hit this lovely ETSY gal up & go BUCK WILD!

- PS: I bought “Russian Silver” & IRL they are a pretty, true, silver. My iPod cam sux.
I put the “L” pic on INSTAGRAM a few days to show off my kewl kat “Ray Bans” & there was a comment or two about the reddish tone to my hair. I wash 1st with normal shampoo to prep and remove the yukkies, then suds up good with this “SSH”. 5-10 minutes later, rinse & voila! I got this shampoo for 1$ at “The Christmas Tree Shop“. I bought another bottle called “Autumn Harvest” for blond hair for .50 cents! I am MAD I did NOT stock up. Why? Well, since you asked I found it for like 12.95$ on ebay! Ugh. BTW the color was intense, but I toned it waay down. I was looking too “Strawberry Shortcake” like.
I saw this on INSTAGRAM a few days back & thought it looked like fun. I participated today. I forgot Day 1. I am determined to make it a FULL month one of these months. All of the deets are in the pic. Please follow me on Instagram & I’ll come “LIKE” your #BSMPhotoADay images!
I want a tattoo. I saw this and I love the key. I would alter it slightly for my tastes. I am collecting a ton of tat images for inspo and will go to a good tat guy or gal and create my forever masterpiece…This is the easy part. Anticipating the pain is the hardest..
Do any of you have any tats? How did you decide what to get and where to place it?
Be sure to stop by the above mentioned places,people,links and say “HI”. I hope all of you have a beautiful weekend. Please take care of yourselves and each other..
Until next weekend my friends…
