I can’t believe Mother’s Day is this sunday! This year is going by SO fast and I don’t know about you but I need me a stylish watch to help me keep track of my time! Sure my cell phone will do the trick but it’s not going to look pretty with my bangles or new mani. All moms are busy and have to keep track of time for just about everything, like picking up the kids from school, doctor appointments or meetings which means that no matter what a stylish watch helps keep track of your fabulously busy life. One of my favorite brand of watches, Timex, is giving one lucky stylish mama a must-have watch for all year round: the gold multifunction watch worth $85. It’s got that boyfriend watch look that’s perfect to dress up and accessorize or wear alone for a more casual look.

I’m on a first name basis with the beauty consultant at Walgreens (Brenda) and have been for quite a few years. She’s always so helpful and quick to point out any new products that I might like. So when I was asked to review some Neutrogena products I was so excited! Brenda knows I love me my mascara and the fact that I go through an enormous amount, so as soon as I asked her which Neutrogena products she would recommend her immediate response was the NEUTROGENA® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I then told her that with the summer heat starting to get a bit intense my current eyeliner was smudging way too easily – so she recommended NEUTROGENA® Nourishing Eyeliner (and because she knows me so well she grabbed Neutrogena’s new revitalizing lip balm as well).
The NEUTROGENA® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are amazing! I wish I could have gotten the tub but they were out so I got the refill pack instead. Because I have sensitive eyes, I buy tons of cleansing towelettes and most other products are dry and scratchy. These were so soft and it slid my makeup right off which is important for me because I use a lot of mascara. The towelettes did the job! They were strong enough to remove it all but sensitive enough for my eyes.
When Neutrogena says its eyeliner won’t fade boy do they mean it! I really put the NEUTROGENA® Nourishing Eyeliner to the test. I did my usual cat eye and it glided so effortlessly that it made my usual clumsy job look flawless! Then I headed out for a night of dancing and it lasted all night even through my sweating.
The NEUTROGENA® Revitalizing Lip Balm was probably my favorite item and I’m so happy Brenda pointed it out. It’s got all the bells and whistles wrapped into one handy lip balm: it leaves my lips soft, has a slight tint and is SPF 20 (which is a must for me all year round). I’m hooked!
I usually try to keep myself to a monthly visit to Walgreens because I can be dangerous in there and also because I like to accumulate as many points on my Walgreens balance rewards card.

I live in my flip flops but there’s always a day where I want to be a bit sporty yet stylish and I’m not gonna lie it’s not an easy thing for me. I feel most comfortable when I know I can easily slide into my shoes and just as easily kick them off. I think Florida is starting to grow on me Most of the time I can safely pull off a pair of Keds but even then I feel a bit awkward. Check out some celebs who flawlessly pull off summer sneaks and some affordable cute pairs.

I’ve been stacking different types of bangles on my right wrist for as long as I can remember. The routine is simple: I get dressed, grab a handful of bangles, slide them on and away I go. But not long ago one of my boys found two leather bracelets while digging through my jewelry and strapped them on my wrist (my little boys are fascinated with the amount of jewelry and shoes I have).
Anyway, I have yet to take them off…I even sleep with them…and now I just pile on cuffs, watches and other leather bracelets that I’ve had for ages but never even worn. I know this going to sound a bit eccentric but I’ve never liked the way new jewelry, shoes (more boots and sandals) or bags look so most of the time they don’t become a favorite they’re all worn in – which is why I love the leather bracelets so much. When you pair a somewhat masculine piece to your accessories it has a “I don’t care” accidental style. And that’s what accessorizing is all about. Check out some pieces below that would perfect for a stylish mom this Mother’s Day.
After a few failed attempts in creating a pretty spring manicure I came across these matte nails.
I love the green it’s a nice change to my favorite Essie polish in licorice and I just bought Revlon’s matte polish. I figured this a nice way to ease myself into an actual manicure and I’m pretty sure I can handle this one.

I’m obsessed with these samdals! I live in sandals most of the time and these are a perfect way for me to get the feel of wearing an actual shoe rather than just a flat sandal. The chunkiness of the sole and the metallic details give the otherwise simple sandals a more modern and sleek look. And Yeswalker is still running its BOGO with free standard shipping to the United States…how can you resist? Check them out below along with some of my favorite sandals.
Metallic T-Strap Sandals – $52

I’m determined to give myself a decent mani and have been looking everywhere for easy DIY tutorials and inspirations. I’ve never had the patience to sit down and try to do anything other than a basic two coat mani, but the nail craze has bitten me and I’m on a mission! Below are some of my favorites that I’ve yet to try, but when I do if (and it’s even half way decent) I will definitely post about it.
Simple, pretty and sparkly!

Now it appears that Robert Pattinson is once more off the market, it’s time to turn our attention to a new form of arm candy, and this season’s clutch bag trends are sufficiently gorgeous to make us forget about R-Patz… for now, at least.
Jewel-toned metallics are hot this season, thanks to Burberry’s runway of shimmering metallic trench coats, and clutch bags are no exception to the candy-wrapper-esque look. Pick a purse in a shiny shade of emerald, ruby or sapphire, or else embrace the season’s other colourful trend- Neon. Eye-burningly bright fluorescent hues are big news right now, with popping pinks and citric tones courtesy of Oscar de la Renta, Simone Rocha and House of Holland to name a few. MSGM’s cruise collection takes on two trends, centring pieces around neon florals and bold monochrome stripes, which provide a refreshing makeover to the boring black bag. For those magpies amongst you searching for some sparkle- the statement embellished clutch is for you.
My favourite clutch of the season is for the fashion risk takers- the revival of the transparent Lucite bag, once popular with a certain Ms Monroe back in the 1950′s. These perspex purses have been spotted on many a member of the fash-pack, displaying their contents for the world to see. But for those more concerned with their privacy, opt for a style with an inner pouch.
Where shape is concerned, structured box bags take centre stage with fashionistas trading in their soft purses for a modern, hard case clutch. Elsewhere, SS13 also sees clutches of the fold over style alongside maxi envelope clutches for chic daytime carrying.

I absolutely love it when a video is so provocative and visually striking that it immediately captures your imagination from the first frame. To help launch designer Roberto Cavalli’s new fragrance, Just Cavalli, a new video was created to help promote the scent’s sexy spirit. And it worked! The video is definitely provocative and edgy and includes Cavalli’s trademark animal print motif. I also adored how the video had a hippie vibe mixed in with a modern day urban spin to highlight the perfume’s aura of youth and seduction. Discover the Just Cavalli universe below and see for yourself!
Just Cavalli for her is a sexy and provocative new fragrance by Cavalli. Just fun. Just more. Just free. Just now. Just Cavalli.
