First off let’s just deal with this product’s unfortunate name. Chubby Stick. Perhaps I am just a twelve year old boy but I giggle every time. My very favorite color is Fuller Fig. So I myself, like a fuller Chubby stick. But I digress. As a product junkie I am […]

Budget Friendly Ankle Booties

Posted November 9th, 2011 by Victoria Mason in Fashion

  You can’t turn a page in a fashion magazine or even a Sunday flyer without seeing an ad for ankle booties. Personally, I hate that they are called booties.  It makes me feel all the more frivolous for wanting them.  Can’t we just be grown-ups and call them ankle boots.  […]

Self Tanning Confessions

Posted October 26th, 2011 by Victoria Mason in Beauty, Uncategorized

Mad Men Style at Banana Republic

Posted September 7th, 2011 by Victoria Mason in Fashion

To me nothing makes being put together easier than taking tips from the styles of the 1960’s.  There was elegance, tailoring, panache and sensibility to the way people dressed.  Incorporating looks from this era are easier than ever with the popularity of AMC’s hit show, “Mad Men”.  Now, for the second season, […]

Learning and Loving Eye Liner

Posted September 2nd, 2011 by Victoria Mason in Beauty, Fashion

There is a beauty product out there that scares the beejeezus out of everyone.  Even the most accomplished make-up artist has a weak spot.  Mine, is eye liner.  The preciseness, the fine lines, even smudging techniques make me feel like an epic failure.  Hating failure and thinking that being scared […]
