Empire State of Mind
As I was listening to Pandora, windows down - sun roof open, on the way home from school, "Empire State of Mind" began to seep through my pulsating car speakers. Cheesy, I admit, but this song inspired me to write an ode to one of my all time favorite vacay spots: NYC.

 Ode to NYC
             Blinding bright lights, larger than life dreams, ear piercing taxi horns, 
Broadway musicals, one of a kind fashion, abundant creativity, massive skyscrapers…
all of these things come to mind when I hear the words, “New York City,” 
but New York City is so much more than all of these common clich├ęs.  
New York City is the medium through which dreams are actually reached 
and one of my favorite places to roam.

a strong innate desire to rove or travel about


Twinkly lights are the key to my heart

Add a little POP to your pout

Being the make-up junkie that I am, I have always had a thing for vibrant lips. Although I don't consistently have the guts to sport outrageously intense and bizarre lip colors, I still get my lipstick fix with subdued reds, dusty roses and peachy tones.  Adding color to your lips can be the key to brightening up both your face and your outfit. Bright lip tones can be that extra little 'oompf' needed to compliment a predominantly neutral outfit, without being gaudy and over the top. The lip color of your choice can also help bring out the natural shades of your eyes. But enough with the practical reasons behind applying color to your lips. Let's be real, sometimes we just want to feel like the spunky Marilyn Monroe. So come on girls, let your inner pin up girl out.

and for all you daring souls...
