Twittermoms and Sears Kenmore has teamed up for a fun new call for blog submissions asking me to share 10 tips for weaving the hottest runway trends into your day-to-day looks,  you can read more about this request here

Im sure if your anything like i am its very important to look our best out in public!! The hottest runway trends are always changing from season to season and keeping up is very important!! I have a teenage girl who will refuse to go to the mall with me inless im some what on point with the todays fashion world,in her eyes my hair has to be the correct color,my nails has to have the coolest design,my make-up has to be applied a certain way and my clothes has to be from the hottest line.I quess you wont see me out to often with her!!

Im no superstar or no plain jane,i just like to look nice and presentable.I have a few tips i would love to share with you for weaving the hottest runway trends into your day-to-day looks.

  1. Keep your favorite blog bookmarked- I found a blog online where all the latest beauty products are updated on a daily basis.It posts all the different beauty products that are out along with reviews and prices.I always read the reviews before i purchase beauty products.
  2. Subscribe to your favorite fashion magizine- Find a good subscription deal on a magazine that you can always count on to show you the latest styles.Its good to read about how to apply make-up and see the latest shoes out.
  3. Keep up with the fashion reality shows- Tons of reality shows on tv are up to date with fashion.I love the Hairshow,i learn all the different hairstyles that are in.I watch the talk shows and im in love with the Style Network channel.
  4. Be a frugal shopper- Yard sales,consinment shops,and coupons will carry you a long way with being able to save on the beauty products, fashion purses and clothes we all love.You can even find good deals online.
  5. Watch the fashion shows- Jerseylicious is a reality show that i watch faithfully!The girls are all hairdressers and dress well.I learn so many hair styles watching them.I love their make-up.
  6. Get measured-In order to look good,you must have your measurements in the correct places.You dont want to wear a pair of slacks with the bottoms touching the ground,or your bra snapping open.
  7. Department Stores/Outlets-From my experience,when i shop at the outlet stores i find more deals and the lattest fasion.I can find bargins with department stores but outlets are discounted allready.
  8. Shop in your attic- Im sure some place in your house or storage you have clothes bagged that went out of style yrs ago,well these days all the fashion from the past has come back.I found so many neat scarfs in my attic along with the colorful pants i thought were never going to come back into style.
  9. Trade and borrow- Family members and friends will always be willing to trade or borrow different items.The pink shirt your sister dont like would give to you for your blue eye shadow.
  10. Watch Entertainment Tonight-  All the celebrities are always up to par with the hottest fashion.The latest purses,shoes and make-up styles can be watched on Entertainment Tonight.

I hope these tips are useful to you,please feel free to share some of yours below.

Who brings comfort and joy to my life!!!!

Twittermoms and Kleenex has teamed up and requested me to share with you who brings comfort and joy to my life! You can read more about this request here

When i first saw this request posted at Twittermoms i knew i had to share,this would be a good topic to share with my readers because it was something i was just thinking about yesterday.This hits home for me because its something so special and dear to my heart.My good friend Zabrina,she brings me comfort and joy in my life on a daily basis.I could blog atleast 40 pages about all the comfort and joy she gives me.

For me a friend is someone who i can trust and believe in,someone who is here for me and willing to give me their shoulder to cry on at anytime.In return im that same friend to them.In my life i have had many good friends who i have been able to laugh and cry with.We would be close for many years and share many secrets.I still have these friends but i have this one special friend named Zabrina.When asked to blog about who brings comfort and joy in to my life i have to say she is off the charts!!!!
Our friendship is so special to me in so many ways.I struggle on a daily basis with excessive sleepiness called Narcelepsy.I can barely funtion even with taking medication,it takes alot of energy for me to just get up out of the bed in the mornings to shower.Getting showered and dressed daily is much more like a 2hr job.As a mother of 4 children i have been so blessed to have Zabrina as part of my life.Not only does she work a full time job she also helps me care for my 4 kids.Many mornings are hard for me,my 3yr old is like having 4 toddlers! Zabrina is right by my side helping to get him ready for school and out the door on time all before she starts work.The other kids are teens so they pretty much can do alot themselfs.
Zabrina has been here for me through thick and thin,on those days i cant open my eyes its her who will pick the kids up from school,help them with their homework and loves cooking dinner! I would be so lost without her,,on many days when i would cry and be ready to give up Zabrina would lend me her shoulder to cry on and give me that extra push to keep going.We have been friends for the past 17yrs and i look forward to the many more years to come!!
