Only in My Dreams: Christian Louboutin Shoes

I don’t own any Christian Louboutin’s. They are so fab, but I can’t afford them. Lol! But I could dream, can’t I? If I have truckloads of money I’d probably have lots of Louboutins in my shoe closet.

Why? I love it! Christian Louboutin always has this classy, elegant look to his pieces. I read some chick lit before with the main character’s mantra is “you can’t go wrong if you’re wearing Louboutin’s”.

Exaggeration, perhaps but really what girl wouldn’t feel great if you’re wearing something as fab as this two..

Drool worthy shoes, imo.. But since I don’t have lots of money {yet =)}, I’ll settle to just staring at them..

Pretty Girly Wall Stickers from Kohls

You probably guessed right. I wouldn’t pass up posting something as really cute, pretty and girly! For the past few days, I’ve been so engrossed with updating my ‘home styling and home decor trends’ blog that I’ve missed updating my other sites. And to top that, I was so into it that I’ve ended up creating another blog with its own domain and would be dedicated to home decoration finds and tips. My tentative title for this blog is Simply Home Style. I’ll be featuring about this soon, and of course, readers who have an interest in home and living features are most welcome..

It’s one of my passions – home styling and home decor! I guess its one hobby or interest that I share with a lot of women out there. Since this is a women themed blog and I always feature online product finds, I’ll also be including pretty finds that you might want to add to your home, you know to glam it up a bit, to prettify, and to make it a bit more unique and feminine..

Anyway, I think I blabbered enough already.. I couple of days I ago I was hopping on some home-related online shops looking for some wall decals. We’re planning to make our daughter her own ‘girly’ room and I don’t want bare walls so I was looking for something cute and pretty to spruce it up a bit..

Here’s what I find from Kohl’s..

Mirrored Butterfly Wing Stickers – in silver, so it could balance out if you’re using very vibrant colors on your wall. And its on sale! From $19.99 grab it now for only $7.99.

Mirrored Butterfly Wall Stickers

Dry Erase Bird Wall Stickers – this is totally usable! I could actually leave notes for my daughter there to say ‘clean your room..”or “do you homework” or ‘no TV after 8 pm’.. This would come in pretty handy..From $19.99 grab it now for only $7.99

Top Tips On Choosing A Swimsuit

Not everyone has the perfect body, but of course this should not stop us from enjoying the beach, and wearing a head-turning swimsuit. The trick really is choosing the swimwear that would flatter and highlight our assets.

Phenomenal Woman By Olivia Newton-John

I call this, “THE” song for women. It just speaks to me whenever I feel down  and not feeling confident about myself. Whenever I hear it, I believe it. That I might not be model-like in figure, or I bear no resemblance to Christy Turlington, or I don’t have that Angelina Jolie pout, but still I’m a woman, a phenomenal woman..

Woman

Women, we all come in all shapes, looks and sizes, but there’s something amazing in each one of us.

Here’s the lyrics,

Pretty women wonder
where my secret lies
I’m not cute or built to suit
a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them
They think I’m telling lies.

I say
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my steps
The curl of my lips.

I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman
(yes indeed)
Cause i’m a woman
Phenomenal woman
Baby that’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And to a man
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
Like a hive of honey bees.

I say
It’s the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth
The swing of my waist
The joy in my feet.

I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman
(yes indeed)
Cause i’m a woman
Phenomenal woman
Baby that’s me.

Swarovski Handbag Hangers

How many bags do you have? I’m sure most girls would answer an average of more than 10. Lol! I have lots of bags, some stashed in a cabinet, some I rarely use stashed inside my unused luggages and I have a whole lot in my room back home in the Philippines.

For bag lovers, one particular concern is to be able to care for your bags. Of course, while using it you don’t want to place it just anywhere, where it could get stains, tears etc. Here’s a handbag accessory that I think would come in handy for us..

Handbag Hanger - Neiman Marcus

Swarovski Handbag Hangers! It can easily attach to a surface so you can hang your bag, in a easy-to-reach distance, out of the floor, and out of others way.Its available in pink, green or clear crystal colors and costs $28 at Neiman Marcus.

I found another item to add to my ‘ONLY IN MY DREAMS’ category. As I’ve mentioned in my first featured item, these are luxury items I find online that I find interesting and wouldn’t mind having if and when money is not an issue.

Stuff I could probably only buy in my dreams =) unless some Russian billionaire comes over and gives this to me hahaha..

The Solange Azagury-Partridge Ballcrusher 18-karat gold and pearl ring.

Styles I

Here’s another dose of those cool user submitted styles from ShopStyle. I just love this look created for the group Italian Style. What drew me was the colors used. Pale, muted shades of beige, off white with splashes of pale pink and gold. Perfect to tone down the glare of the summer heat.

And of course, those sculpture shoes are eye-catching and I am impressed with the clothes and accessories picked to enhance the look. My favorites? The shoulder bag by Christian Louboutin, earrings by Max & Chloe, and those sunglasses by Roberto Cavalli.

A perfectly stylish and elegant look.
