A few weeks ago, I ordered custom hanging wall letters for my son’s nursery. They just came in the mail, and I can’t get over how amazing they turned out! I bought them from Jarrett Creations on Etsy and they personalized them based on my color preferences, animal preferences (West’s room is jungle/safari themed) and the design of my crib bedding set (I sent them a link to a picture).
If you have a little one (or one on the way) and you’re in the market for wall letters, I highly recommend Jarrett Creations. Even personalized, each letter only cost $7. Great product, wonderful customer service and excellent price!
Okay, back to your regularly-scheduled beauty programming…
When I first saw this photo, I thought to myself, “Surely this is proof that the ancient Egyptians rocked nail art.” But this is no mummy manicure. Sadly, these hands belong to a real live human being – with tacky taste, access to a digital camera and, apparently, no hand cream.
So my question to you is this: if your fingers were this wrinkled, would you draw attention to them with gaudy nail art?
A few weeks ago, Mr. Spoiled Pretty shared a particularly hilarious anecdote from his childhood growing up in Cheney, Washington.
Between the ages of 10 and 12, Graham would travel to downtown Cheney to get his hair cut by a man known as ‘Shorty.’ Shorty charged $3.50 (not $3 or $4) for his signature cut – the flat top. By signature, I mean that the flat top is the only style he knew how to perform. Thanks to his bargain basement prices, Shorty earned a steady clientele of local farmers and young boys.
One detail of Graham’s story that intrigued me (besides the crazy $3.50 flat top price tag) was the fact that Shorty’s barber shop stocked an extensive selection of Playboy magazines. Which got me thinking…
If I were a guy waiting to get my hair cut, wouldn’t I feel weird flipping through a Playboy in public? The answer is a resounding “yes.” But, apparently, Playboy magazines in men’s barber shops are fairly common.
Despite Mr. Spoiled Pretty’s insistence that there are articles in Playboy that men actually read, the phenomenon of men casually perusing Playboy in broad daylight – in a place of business – still strikes me as pervy.
One of my BFF’s (best blogging friends) is the lovely Erika, from Makeup Bag. She has three daughters who are product-obsessed, just like their mama. But her youngest, Janey, takes beauty to a whole nuther level. She might just be the most entertaining 7 year old ever.
This video is absolutely hysterical, so I had to share. Erika, I think it’s time Janey got her own blog.
Okay…so I think we all agree that Baby Bangs is a terrible idea. I’m very relieved to know that I’m not alone in my sanity, though there’s gotta be some looney toons out there keeping this company afloat.
I just can’t wrap my mind around a parent who would slap a toupee on a baby’s head and think she looks cute. The only conceivable use for Baby Bangs would be a day care production of Julius Caesar.
Anyway, I’ve found a much better way to spoil your little one pretty. Heelarious has these absolutely adorable high heel slippers for babies. So cute – in fact – that after perusing their inventory, I immediately started popping folic acid supplements. How precious would Baby Spoiled Pretty look with her lil tootsies in this pair of Brooke heels? Hell, I want an adult-sized pair…just to kick it around the house.
