Old School Pink Manicure

Hello All,

So I forgot that today is Pink Wednesday and was not prepared to post anything. My nails aren't even pink today. I'm actually wearing O.P.I. Black Shatter. I sincerely apologize for not having anything prepared. I do have a throw back from when I used to get gels. The picture I'm posting is a pink color gel with sparkles. I do love my gels but decided to get my nails a rest and just wear my own. This gel color is very pretty in person. I don't know who the brand is but I would like to share with you. Everyone enjoy your pink mani's today.

xoxo - Lexi

Haute Fringe Bags

I found these bags over at and thought they were so pretty. The fringe on the bag reminds me of grass and the colors are so on hit for summer. I could definitely use one of these bags. I also think of Hawaiian fun in the sun when I look at this bag. I shouldn't say bad its more of a clutch. Its the perfect item to add to your wardrobe for the summer.

You can pick one up at and if you enter the code INSTYLE20 you can receive a 20% discount. I love the words...DISCOUNT! The offer on the discount is from April 23 to May 18th. Price is $79 but $63.20 after the discount code used.

Its Time to Lolly on over to Pink Wednesdays

It's that time again. I actually look forward to Wednesdays just so I can paint my nails pink. I can't believe its been an entire week since my last post. Well I don't have many followers anyway kind just post for me I guess. (LOL). Anyway, my excitement for pink Wednesdays had me thinking about colors all night just the concept of it. I thought about the colors in my house. My whole house is drowning with the color teal and yellow. So that made me inspired to do a mani that brought out the colors in my house.While polishing my nails Lolly I turned to my stove and stared at my pot that is teal. See below.

I grabbed my Phoebe and proceeded to dot my nails but something was missing so I grabbed my favorite polish of all my polishes...China Glaze O.M.G. These colors are matte and I'm not a big fan of matte because I love shine. I left my nails matte for an hour and couldn't take it so I painted one hand with my SV topcoat. What do you guys think? Does the polish look better matte or with a top coat on top. I personally think matte is only pretty when its solid with no design. Well here it is hope you like it.

Step Right Up! To Pink Wednesday!

As part of "OnWednesdaysWeWearPink" I decided to paint my nails a light pink from the O.P.I.'s Femme De Cirque. I never been a fan of the lighter shades of polish but my local beauty supply had a little case of the miniature polishes. I love the minnies because I tend not to use all my polish anyway. I just wish I filed my nails before putting these pictures up and my mother still has my camera. All I have to work with is my camera phone that takes really crappy pictures. This line of polishes actually makes me a fan of the soft shades because they are really pretty. The colors lets me change things up because I have been wearing very bright colors lately. Well hope you can enjoy!

Lightening Bolts anyone?

Dear Melody Ehsani - I need each pair of the lightening bolt earring you tweeted today. Major obsession with these earrings.

H&M unisex line Fashion against AIDS

The store that everyone loves to shop at is coming out with a unisex line. What is a unisex line you say? Both men and women can wear the clothing. It will be interesting to see men and women rocking the same outfits from H&M. You'd probably only see the metro sexual in these pieces because no men over 200 lbs. could probably pull the outfits off. That's just my opinion. I will be picking up one of the graphic tees.

The concept is a really good idea! AIDS does not discriminate against men or women so why should fashion. Majority of the consumers are youth that shop at H&M and our youth should be made aware how serious the AIDS epidemic is. 25% of the sales will be donated to AIDS prevention around the world. Keri Hilson, Akon, and a few other known celebrities even jumped on to support the campaign. She definitely makes the the jump suit look good for us women. Akon also makes the hoodies look good on men. The collection will be released April 26th 2011. Check out some of the photos for this great cause.

All I See is Yellow

Okay, I have a huge obsession with yellow. I think this color will be my fav this summer. I'm attracted to you yellow. It's such a bright fun loving color. With that said. I painted my nails yellow this week. I used Sally Hensen's Xtreme Wear brand called "Mellow Yellow" number 27. Thanks to my mom I don't have my camera so my pictures are a little blurry due to the low quality of my camera phone. I wish you could see the polish the way I do in person. I have been receiving tons of compliments at work. As many as you know its hard to find a nice looking yellow. This color is creme and light. It goes on a little thick but that is how I usually put on my coats anyway so the color has more depth. I also noticed some streaking while applying. One to two nails also had bubbles which I'm not a big fan of. I started to pick at my nails if I see any bubbling. For the cost of the bottle I think I got my dollars worth.

Yellow Peter Pan Collar Blouse

While browsing today I came across this blouse on TopShop. The first thing that caught my eye was this beautiful color. I'm a big fan of yellow at the moment. I have yellow nails on right now. I even bought some yellow TOMS shoes that really doesn't look yellow at all but that is a different story. This blouse I absolutely love! I'm not really into Viscose fabric it just doesn't agree with me but the color of this blouse does. The front pockets on the shirt are pretty as well but if you have large chest which I do I suggest not to wear a shirt that brings attention to your chest area. This blouse is a great pick for work or a beautiful spring day. This season is the time to bring color to your wardrobe.

Charles Albert Jewerly

Can I just say that my taste are way above me. I discovered that this weekend when I when shopping with my aunt to help her find frames. Of course, I picked out the Juicy Couture frames and she fell in love with them but were over her budget. She asked me why did you have to always pick out the expensive stuff. Hey I don't try to I just pick out what I like. With that being said I fell in love with this cuff from the jewelry line from Charles Albert. His pieces are pretty prices. You won't see me wearing one anytime soon. Maybe I can get my hands on a ring.

The jewelry in this line is stellar and very unique. I have seen many pieces for example I was just in Costco and there was a booth selling gemstone jewelry but nothing compares to Charles Albert. These pieces are really a work of art..the creations are mind blowing. The jewelry is hand-made of the finest gems and silver in the world..I can believe it. Many pieces are worn by celebrities which also make the price of these items rise. Nevertheless I think the pricing scheme on these pieces are worth it. Could you see yourself rocking one of these fancy rocks?

Wildfox Couture Spring 2011 Collection

Every since I watched Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette in 2006 I have been inspired by the clothing in the movie. Kirsten Dunset was stunning in this movie. Although I didn't understand why everyone had an accent and she didn't. Wildfox has created a collection based on Marie Antoinette's style in the movie. Everything about the collection is feminine and flirty. The phrases on the shirts are typical sayings from the times but catchy. The pieces depict royalty and revival as noted by ScarJo. Please take a look at the video below. I know you will get inspired. I just purchased "Let them eat cake" shirt and can't wait to rock it. The clothes look very comfortable but Wildfox shows show you how you can take a sweatshirt and turn it into something marvelous.Vive La France!! Thanks to Logical Harmony for the photos.

I Vant To Be A-Lone Star

If you're looking for something boring and with a good girl image go for O.P.I. I Vant To Be A-Lone Star. This is not a band thing it just doesn't scream excitment for me. I do have to admit that the color has lasted on my nails for a least for days. I should probably thank Seche Vite top coat for that. I first applied a base coat and then 1 coat of the Lone Star polish next I applied a top coat and then the polish and finally the last top coat. It sort of like a sandwhich wrap so the polish can last longer. I decided to paint my nails this color because the company I work for was having a conference so I didn't want to be to over the top. The polish is a bit streaky so that is why I decided on the wrap. This is great for a job interview, a first date, a meeting, etc. Don't mind the polish on the skin...I cleaned it up when I was done.
