red and green

red and green are familiar colors of the holiday season so its no surprise that they are the leading nail polish trends right now. debuting on the paris runways was the emergence of the chanel jade polish, a minty green polish that looks more like split pea soup then glam polish. I say skip the green and go right to the cherry red pop of essie's lollipop. a perfect stocking stuffer or pressie for friends when tied up in ribbon with nail file, clippers and cuticle oil.

parlour tricks

where can you get a massage, a new 'do, freshly made ice cream and tattoos all in one fell friday swoop? at the 20th installment of ryan mcginness' 50 parties party, parlour night, of course. beauty props from this beauty expert as the girls were rocking n' rolling early 1950 updo's with a punk twist that made it feel like prom. lucky for us, there was the freshly made ice cream offered in the ice cream parlor of the burnt sugar and pumpkin spice variety to accompany the urban innocence of friends getting fucked up at a friday night house party. yumm. me and maaj waited on line for tattoos, of which ryan chose some of his choice images for guests to permanently parade around. never made it to the front of the line but met some lovely (and tall - hi karen and mamie) new friends along the way and saw many of ryan's friends get their tattoo cherry popped. mazel. made our way out as the party was winding down and michael hearst packed up his theramin. can't wait for next week when our t-day leftovers will be put to good use.

uniquely uniqlo

ever since M. got a hot pair of jeans that show off his incredibly hot bum, I've been jonesing for a good pair myself. I have recently fallen in love with the very cool japanese brand, uniqlo. situated on broadway in downtown new york city, they have soft and wearable v-necks for guys for $4.90 so you can imagine the collection they carry for girls. ooooo child, I picked up a pair of deconstructed straight leg skinny's that are medium waisted, alleviating my muffin top and lifting my ass. G*d, I love these jeans. check out the site, the store and run, don't walk to get your hands on a pair of anything from this affordable, trustworthy and trendy brand.
