Mix Maven Update 9-17-2008

Hey Pumps and Glossy Ones,

Just wanted to update you on some Pumps and Gloss info.

I am sure that you have noticed the changes in the layout (not the final layout) and more changes are coming.  One change, better yet addition is the Swatch Gallery (upper right hand area).  I have placed all the swatches that I have posted in previous blog entries, plus additional Too Faced eye shadow swatches.  (Sidebar: I have new found respect for the bloggers that create makeup swatches for readers….my hats off to you!)

More Hello Kitty finds:

Run to your local Target because the Dollar section is being updated with new products, which means items are 50%, which is 50 cents… cannot beat that with a bat! Here are some of my Hello Kitty finds:

Hello Kitty Black Case

Hello Kitty Black Case

I am totally obsessed with travel makeup storage.  I can never have enough!

So I will definitely be using this case for housing eye shadows (can hold about 5 MAC eye shadows and 2 eye shadow brushes) When I am on the go, this case will come in very handy.

Pink, Green and White Small Hello Kitty Tote

Pink, Green and White Small Hello Kitty Tote

The cutest little tote bag.  I will use it for storing non-cosmetics HBAs, so I can easily locate them once we arrive at our destination.  I promise that you will not see me toting this adorable little bag on the streets. 🙂

What are some of your fun, inexpensive finds?

Birthday Wish List

Hey yall,
Today is my 25th birthday, yes 25! *wink wink* 😉
Everyone deserves to be showered with gifts on their birthday.
Here is my birthday wish list *operative word is WISH*
First on the list is the iPod Touch.  I really like this gadget because I can have access to the Internet without having to get an AT&T mobile phone plan.  I like my current mobile carrier and I do not want to switch.  I also love my smartphone,a BlackBerry Curve *BlackBerry Brigage Unite!!*,

but I do not always have access to certain websites.  On the iPod Touch, as long as there is Wi-Fi, users can have access to the real Internet via Safari, plus loads of games and other fun features and yeah the iPod part too.  I have a feeling that Apple will release a pink iPod Touch next year, so I can wait, but I still want one. LOL

I am new fan of Asos, a UK e-tailer, and I found a couple of things on the site that I want:
The Betsey Johnson Multi Charm Bracelet Watch.

I love baubly jewelry and I enjoy the sound that charm bracelets make.   I like the fact the bracelet doubles as a watch. Cute and functional!

Paul's Boutique Patent Ostrich Twister Bag

This bag is huge and shiny, a great combo in my book. 😉 The older I get, the more accoutrement I need to help me through the day.  Now, I do not like the skull and bones on the purse, but a quick snip should do the job!

Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Rose Print Pleated Dress is the cutest!  I do not wear dresses often because I am a top and skirt kinda lady.  One can never go wrong with separates if built differently on the top and bottom.  I am not even sure if the dress hides any sins, but I love monochromatic charcoal grey pattern….whimsical yet elegant design.

The MAC Palette created by Manisha Arora.  Yes, the colors are dupable and I even own some of the colors, but I love the packaging.  MAC Cosmetics knows how to tug at my purse strings.  lol  The corally pink and gold casing with heart-shaped gems, one word “Gorge” lol

I will try to have tons of fun on my birthday, which may include a nap, LOL.  But know for sure that I will be celebrating all week. 😉
Have a great day
Stay beautiful,
