Sperry Top-Siders for the cold season and invest in a pair of smoking slippers. I've seen dozens in dark shades or bedazzled- but these have a sweet feminine side. Designed by Vince Camuto, you can purchase them at Nordstrom.
hooked on bareMinerals foundation, bronzer and blush products, I decided to dabble in the eye shadows. I ordered the Rare Find palate at a deep discount with my Beauty dot com dollars and it came in two short days. The earthy and subtly shimmery hues lend themselves to my Autumn wardrobe beautifully. I'd suggest investing in bareMinerals Prime Time eye primer as well. It's light and keeps that color on for hours.

The Loneliest Planet is the tale of an engaged couple hiking through Georgia's Caucasus Mountains with a hired guide. In synopsis:
"...Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, play games to pass the time of moving through space. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture that’s over almost as soon as it begins...Once it is done, it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and about themselves."
The film opens on 25 October in select theaters and will be On Demand come 30 October.

Trotterpup today and couldn't help but share. Did you know that a study found that looking at cute things may increase concentration? Good thing I have photos of my Pug in my cube to keep me on my game.

My husband and I have been tossing around various ideas for Halloween, with no real commitment, given the amount of traveling we've been doing lately. I love pumpkins and gourds, but I'm not particularly committed to a carving party. Honestly WTF featured a pretty DIY to craft lace pumpkins.
Thin Black Lace Applique or Fabric
2 Medium-sized brushes
1 Small brush
>Using one of your medium brushes, paint the pumpkin(s) white. Allow to dry, then apply a second coat and allow to dry.
> With the small brush, paint the stem black
>Place the lace or fabric in desired areas and coat with the Mod Podge. You may need to allow certain parts of the lace dry at a time, to fully fuse the material.
Fun and a bit sexy, no? Perfect decor for a cocktail party.

Lululemon work out clothes to me in the past few months. I popped into the Union Square store, as well purchased a few items and took advantage of their "We Ordered Too Much," section of their webpage.
Having had a chance to try them out while jogging during my recent trip to Europe, and a few mornings at the gym in my apartment building, I am seriously hooked. Soft, light and built to work with your movements, I have to say these are the best workout clothes I've had. I ordered a few more jackets and a headband today for more outdoor workouts in the cool Fall season!
Olive Manna fabulous? Each one is unique, like a hand print. The average size is 9"x11," but some come a bit larger, some a bit smaller. The seller offers to do her best to select the size you desire. Find yours here.
Check it out at MAC.

I wore a feathers in my hair (and a veil for the ceremony). I love this pretty head band from Be Something New! It's the same colors as my wedding- canary and dove grey! If I had found it earlier, I certainly would have considered it over my pretty feathers.

I'm a Miss Dior girl, but I recently discovered Demeter Fragrance Library. The scents are amazing- they smell exactly as they are described from paperback book to a Black Russian cocktail or brownie. I purchased the honeysuckle scent, which reminds me of childhood- when we'd pick the honeysuckle flowers in Northern California and suck out the sweet nectar. It's a flawless, light every day scent.
