London Calling....

OBSESSED and want to try some of these products. Love the colors, the names and the web site.

I polish my own nails on a regular basis and have for years. In fact, I am usually (thought not at the present moment) pretty meticulous about them. Ladies (and men too), I hate to break it to you but there is nothing worse than nails that are not taken care of properly. It destroys your look.

When it comes to nail polish I typically stick to neutral classics for the hands (think Essie Ballet Slippers, OPI Bubble Bath, Essie Mademoiselle) but my current job allows me to feel as though I can experiment a bit so when a colleague turned me on to "Waking up in Vegas" from deborah lippman I decided to take a risk. I must admit the $13 price tag with my discount was a stretch, probably the most I ever spent for a bottle of polish but I am so glad I did. I have gotten oodles of compliments on the color and I know I will use this polish to the very last drop. The greyish color polish with lavender undertones is the color worn by Lady Gaga on the cover of Vanity Fair's famous September Style Issue. I so look forward to that issue as I love seeing who makes the Best Dressed List.


I am in denial that this wedding of mine is taking place in just 16 days! Most details are where I want, some aren't and won't be and I'm OK with that. It's going to be a great weekend but I am SO ready to just be married and get on with our life!

When I was thinking about the look and feel of the reception I wanted clean, timeless and elegant. I went back and forth on my wedding bouquet and was a bit sad to learn that two of my favorite flowers, ranunculus and peonies, are not in season during September and therefore I would have to make a different choice. I thought about orchids until I saw this photo. Leave it to Tom Ford. My choice has been made.
