Are you a Nasty Gal kinda girl?

Chill. It's a clothing web-site, although, it use to actually be a pornography site but is no more...


Nasty Gal


So let me tell you how I stumbled upon Nasty Gal. I was on the very addictive and utterly amazing site pinterest, when a dark haired, very pregnant beauty caught my eye. She was sporting a stunning  outfit consisting of a sheer leopard blouse knotted right above her baby bump over a solid black maxi. The description read "blog with adorable 'maternity' outfits. this could def come in handy one day!" So I pinned away to my "Oh baby baby" board and went on my way. After actually opening the pin, it linked me to a wonderful blog which I now follow, THE HONEYBEE, by the lovely Andee Layne. After reading the comments on the post she informed her followers that she purchased the top from NastyGal.com. Say WhAt!?! NastyGal.com? What type of clothing am I going to find there? Well, as it turns out, lots & lots of styles that I love! I bought a gorgeous leopard print scarf that is a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe.  I receive so many compliments on it every time I wear it, however, I must admit that when asked where I purchased it from I was hesitant to reply "Nasty Gal". (This is where I would try to keep from blushing. Keep in mind I do live the very deep south and in a very small-town to boot. Eyebrows were raised, ok?) Anywho, I will no longer hesitate to answer any inquiries about my purchases from Nasty Gal after reading the Naughty in Name Only article by Forbes on Nasty Gal's founder, Sophia Amoruso. Call it girl power or whatever but her story is very inspiring and empowering to me. So you know what, screw all the nay-sayers and haters. If you are looking for something fresh and original, give her site a go. I'll admit I don't & couldn't wear some of the looks sold on the site but any fashion loving gal is bound to find something they covet on there. So if you have never stopped by Nasty Gal, give it a whirl. You'll be surprised at what ends up in your tote. And if you're wondering why she named her store Nasty Gal, then you need to read the article. Happy Shopping!

She's so MAJ!

If you are wondering what the heck my title means then it is obvious you are not familiar with Rachel Zoe from The Rachel Zoe Project. I'm SUCH A HUGE FAN! I am finally, repeat FINALLY able to watch her show as it airs since I switched to DirectTV and a package that includes BRAVO. ( I know, I know...why have I not had BRAVO until now?...long story- not getting into it) Anyway, her show airs at 8pm central on Wednesday nights & I am obsessed. She started out as a stylist and still is (hello!?... she styles Jennifer Lawrence & Anne Hathaway- we know how I feel about those two ladies) but has recently started her own clothing line as well. And I love me some Rachel Zoe Designs! Anywho, if you love anything to do with clothes, shoes, fashion, design or just plain drama then you will enjoy her show. I mean this woman came from nothing: fighting her way into the shows during fashion week and now styles the stars, has her own clothing line, a multimillion dollar business and not to mention the cutest little boy who has a heck of a wardrobe. And don't let me forget about her husband, Roger, I mean this guy is incredible. He runs the "business" side of her company and is obviously a heck of a business man but, is one heck of a husband and Papa to boot. You can tell he loves and worships his wife or else I don't think he'd stick around. I mean Rachel is hella crazy and he just rolls with it.........just watch the show and you'll see what I mean.

Notice the blurred out face of security gaurd in the background? That's not for Rachel but, for the MILLIONS of dollars worth of loaned out jewelry you see on the table there. Nothing MAJ, just another day at work....



In the Rachel Zoe Studio. Decisions, decisions...


I think we need more shoes.
Always stylish even with baby in tow.


Momma Zoe. Look at that adorable babe!


Power Couple. Gotta love some Rodg.




The Rachel Zoe.
 




So, are you a fan of Rachel Zoe? Do you watch her show or follow her work?
I think she's BA-NAN-AS! ;)

The Fame Game & Lauren Conrad of course...

I just recently finished reading The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad. It got me to thinking about how much this girl has accomplished and she is the same age as me! While she might not have come from nothing she has definitely busted her hump to get where she is now. That's pretty motivating. Anywho, I can't wait to start reading the second book in this series, Starstruck. I also can't wait to see what this little lady will come up with next. She has her own clothing line at Kohl's and now has a higher end line Paper Crown. She's definitely someone I'd like to meet and view as a positive role model for young girls.
The Fame Game   Starstruck: A Fame Game Novel 
Infamous: A Fame Game Novel


I just adore Lauren. She's so cute, yet so relate-able.
And not to mention always on spot when she steps out in public.



I have all 4 pictured above and have read and LOVED them all.




Has anyone purchased her Beauty Book?



And if that wasn't enough Lauren Conrad, you can get more of her by visiting her web-site LaurenConrad.com. It's a daily visit for me.  Obsessed?......  maybe.

The Host

Well I finished re-reading Stephenie Meyer's, The Host. I had to refresh my memory since the movie is coming out March 29th. I will absolutely be in attendance. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of reading this novel I suggest that you do. I admit that it is hard to get into the book but once you get past the 5th or 6th Chapter you are hooked. I think it takes us a minute to grasp the souls and all the different names of everything and the fact that we have been invaded.....
Anywho, don't toss it to the side,keep reading and see for yourself.

 





Be sure to check out the trailer for the movie.
 

And one more if that didn't peek your interest.....

 
So what do y'all think? Will you all be attending the movie? Do you think they've done the book justice so far? I have to say I'm pretty pleased from what I've seen in the clips & trailers.
