Random #2



Thoughts to share...

1) I finally have a twitter account, but I'm still learning how to use it. More on that later.

2) Walgreen's has a sale on the Sinful Nail Polishes, 2/$3...I don't think it's for all the colors (I could be wrong about this) and the sale probably ends on Saturday or Sunday. My sister J4 was kind enough to pick up these lovely spring shades for me...

Sorry, it's a phone shot so the quality isn't that good.
Clockwise from the top: Boom Boom, a bright pink; Purple Diamond, a sheer lavender with sparkle; and my new favorite, Tapping Nails, orange with a gold undertone. Gorgeous! I looked for the sale on line, but I didn't find it, so it may be an in store sale only.

3) If you're into art, here's a site with a twist www.wordsintocolor.com
The artist, Cecilia Illes-Hostetler, has synesthesia, which is the ability to braid together different sensories. When she sees a name or a group of numbers, she also sees them as colors and is able to put it into paintings. That's sort of a simplified version, but check out the site, it's fascinating!

4) These shoes...

A little more cute than what I normally pick, and the heel, while not really a true kitten, is much lower (about 2 inches vs. 4 and up,) than I normally wear. I purchased them about 4 years ago for work and the in the same week, they instituted a closed toe shoe policy. Go figure. Anyway, they've been hanging out in my closet and often get pulled to the donate pile but never seem to make it to Goodwill. I've worn them maybe 5 times in total, they get compliments and they're relatively comfortable. I know a lower heel is in this summer, so my question to you...should I keep them or send them off?

Ooh, I have a color similar to Tapping Nails that I adore. It's like a bronze-ish hue...love love!

As for the shoes...typically, when I see that I don't get much wear out of an item, I hold onto it; then, the next time Goodwill cleaning time comes about, if I haven't worn it, I give it away. Given the fact that these have made it into the Goodwill pile numerous times, maybe it's time to officially say goodbye? :/

I'm with CF. I think you would have worn them more if you really loved them. Send them on to new owners. Love the bright polishes!

if you look, the polishes periodically go on sale,sometimes 2 for price of 1 or 2 for $3. just make a point to check everytime you stop at walgreens, the display is usually very close to if not at the cosmetics counter. i can't seem to stop buying them!

I love those shoes!! That's a tough decision. If you don't think you'll wear them a lot, then I would send them off. But they are so cute!!! I think they'll be nice in the summer for a slightly formal&casual look. I would love to wear em. :D

Ohh wow I just recently past a Walgreen's on my way home frm wrk & was wondering why so many females were online hmm dat must of've been why , Anywho as far as those peep toe heels (Is dat wat u call em?) goes I say if u don't wear em send em' to some one who will I guess, I tend to do dat as well own a million shoes/sneakers and never seem to want to let go. lol

Before you send the shoes away, make a few outfits with them. If that doesn't make you fall in love with them, then away they go!
Thanks for your comment!

gorgeous nail polishes! i can't ever seem to get enough colours and shades...

you have to keep those shoes! they are so cute!! i gave away a pair of low heels i'd had sitting around for ages last spring, because i'd only worn them a couple of times, but now i really regret it, and my closet misses them dearly!

Plastic Redhead said...

I honestly think if you can't wear those shoes in a way that you love that its time to donate it. I say they would look good with some black skinny ankle pants and a striped shirt ala audrey hepburn?

anyway i am obsessed with nail polishes. you should try china glaze fifth avenue. its my absolute favorite!

Looking forward to the twitter updates. I've just set up an account myself, but found myself really lost! Hahahahaha! I'm so beyond these technology! Why can't we just write letters? It's so romantic... :p
