Jewel Nails

Coco recently got the new Milani Jewel FX glitters from CVS in Houston. (Too bad I can't find them here in L.A.) They give a bombshell glam look on a budget!>
A while ago, say 2009, I blogged Coco trying out Minx nails. Well Coco moved on from Minx nails to Rockstar nails which were much more elaborate and EXPENSIVE. 
Finally she started doing her own nails and boy am I amazed at her creativity.
She has got to teach me how to do this stuff.

Leopard Print Dreams!

Clockwise from Left to right: Tripp NYC Leopard Skinny Jeans, Brian Atwood "Lola" pumps, H&M Tribal and Leopard Jumpers, Giuseppe zanotti leopard wedge
So it just so happens every year I make fashion trend predictions  and they come to fruition. Unfortunately, I make these predictions only to myself and have yet to find a way to make it a bankable asset without making me look like the crazy leopard lady.

This year (and every year since the Spice Girls formed) I have been an avid supporter of animal print. My favorite of course is leopard! I have a unique feeling we will see more of my coveted Subsaharan prints this spring. H&M has already released photos from their Urban Vibes campaign which highlight animal and tribal prints.

Oh yes 2011 will be a very good year!

1995


While I was in Texas for the holidays, I noticed my aunt had an old dance picture of My sister and I. I believe this is from a Christmas Dance pageant in 1995. 

I miss those days of Saturday practice complimented with a Shipley's glazed donut and orange juice. (Houston folks know about Shipley's!)

Sidenote: Beyonce and I had the same dance teacher, Miss Darlette. I guess that explains her obsession with the fleshtone dance tights. I remember watching MTV one day to see Destiny's Child talking about Popeye's chicken and the next thing I notice Miss Darlette pops up on the screen! Small world. 


If I was only 7 years older we could have been in the same class and then I could be singing "Say My Name" on stage and not the school bus...le sigh!

I was sad when we stopped taking dance lessons at Kids N' Dance. I think I traded dance for piano lessons which I later traded for Theatre which I later traded for cheerleading which....(yah, I'm all over the place.)

Ya'll I'm just rambling and reminiscing about the past! I wish I could find my Kids N' Dance classmates...or remember their names? 

I guess the lesson here is love the life you live!
