glitzerland

VMA.  DNC.  FNO.    Thursday was a night of acronym’s.  I watched two of them and actively participated in one of them.   FNO, aka Fashion Night Out.    Score, an excuse to wear fun dresses:

Didn’t end up wearing either of them, but hey, still fun.

I had an event at a mall and ended up being set up right next to this, ahhhhh glitzerland:

So many fabulous over the top sparkly things.   I knew I couldn’t resist.   I had to at least try a few things on:

Doesn’t every girl need a giant bejeweled sunflower necklace?  I mean it’d go perfect with a t-shirt and jeans, right?

I did decide to jump on the tangerine tango bandwagon with this cute little necklace, and because I can’t resist green with sparkle I grabbed this fab necklace as well:

A tiny boost to the economy and a little extra sparkle.   Win win!

i’ve been distracted

So the lovely Krystal inspired me to update my little blog.  I love my corner of the web but I’ve just been distracted with work, family stuff, feeling chubby and scruffy.   So here’s what’s up.

I can explain the chubby part.  Snacks.  I really try hard to stay away from sweets but when I fail I fail hard.  I tried a bite of a Cadbury Cream Egg BAR that someone sent to the station.  Yes, a whole bar o’Cadbury Egg, that’s how they roll in the UK.   I’m pretty sure this bite sized piece had about 2,000 calories, and totally not vegan.   It was amazing.

When the circus came through we checked it out from the nosebleed section at the TU.  Seriously if you ever want the best seat in the house, go upper level, it was awesome.

I celebrated my birthday, so lucky!

I discovered a crazy, yet functional moss purse.   The ultimate spring accessory. 20120518-232803.jpg

Of course I sparkled more stuff. Here’s some color blocked frames

Made some delicious vegan meals.   Arugula, squash and mushrooms.   Awesome!

Made a quick trip to the city.   Managed to find the beauty in cabs.

Bought a rock bracelet, made me feel like Shera, Princess of Power.

Discovered a delicious vegan snack.  Housed this

Fit into an 8 year old t-shirt.  No really, that’s amazing that it still fits.  My metabolism was on warp speed 8 years ago.

Enjoyed Mother’s Day with the cutest cake ever (I only had a taste.)

Discovered some radio audio gems in my desk.  FLY92 from the early 90’s.  Listen here.

Discovered my new favorite beer (and I hate beer) Shipyard Applehead (apple beer!!!_

20120518-233504.jpg

Frightened a Starbucks drive-thru peep with this crazy ass knot I got stuck in my hair while trying to rearrange my ponytail.   I know, I know, I shouldn’t be a lazy drive-thru user.

Fell more in love with my orange mani.   Tangerine Tango may be my favorite color of the year yet!!

Became more obsessed with this song.   Watch the video.  Love love love it.

Rocked my 7th grade basketball jersey during dropoff.   I’m too sexy for real grown up clothes before 9:30am.

Aand re-embarked on the summer spray tan.  The foot positions always remind me of a dance chart, now you’ll think of it to the next time you’re nekkid in a Mystic booth.

pantone color of the year – tangerine tango

I don’t know why but for the last few years I look forward to Pantone’s Color of the Year announcement for the New Year, last year was honeysuckle, before that turquoise, and before that mimosa (yummy!)   2012 shall be the year of TANGERINE TANGO!

The color of the year isn’t just for fashion, but it’s how I usually embrace it.   I love the color, I wasn’t sure if redheads strawberry-blonde heads could pull off tangerine, but once I started searching for tangerine looks I found –  it can be done, well at least by models.

This dress by Diane von Furstenberg is technically neon tangerine (still in the tangerine family)

I’m ALL OVER using tangerine tango as an accent color, like in this fabulous Michael Kors bag.   Hint, hint manfriend.


I could definitely see myself sporting this tangerine tango necklace from livjewellery

I’d be glad to add to my shoe collection with these fab peep-toes in tangerine tango from Steve Madden:

Maybe some tangerine tango inspired manis for the new year?

I’ll definitely be on the lookout for tangerine pieces.   Tangerine was actually the inspiration for my first radio name, Tanji Martin.   Yea, the name Tanji only lasted about a week.   Ally won that battle.
