Oh how I Love thee Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is back and we are all excited, not only because its so thrilling to see Lonely Boy'sbaby, if in fact its his, or Chuck somewhere in the Czech Republic, but also because we get to gaze at the wonderful styles of Serena and Blair.
Don't we all wish that we would wake up in Paris, dress in the bestest of Couture and sample the wonderfulness of French Chocolatiers.
But thats not all, they also visit museums and randomly run into Royals with which they then have the pleasure to dine.
And of course they always look extra gorgeous.
Now wouldn't it be great to look like this but not spend a fortune?
Lets take Blair in the museum with the floral dress for example why not
use this dress (27.18$) and this purse (33.98$) (both from and accessorize with the necklace from forever 21(14.80$) and pair with this wonderful pair of tope colored pumps (59.99$) from Altogether this outfit will cost you only 135.95$.
Now the outfit blair is wearing while she is trying out the sweets,here we have a light top with black details (missguided 28.88$) paired with a simple back skirt(forever21 9.50$). On top she is wearing a Boucle Tweed Jacket ( on sale 26$). As accessories we have tights (forever21 6.80$), headband (forever 21 5.80$) and a creme colored purse (missguided 44.18$). As for shoes classic black pumps like these from bakersshoes for 49.99$ are perfect. Altogether you will have 171.15$.
Basically here are some ideas of how one can get more for less and look a million bucks at the same time. So have fun trying out these looks!
Yours truly,

My lovely nails!

For those who are having a hard time making room for constant appointments at the nail salon, wouldn't it be great to have nails polishes that stay put longer than just a few days? You could have acrylic or gel nails? Acrylic holds nail polish for a very long time and you can remove and reapply color any time you want. Disadvantages are the thickness of the nail and also the health of the nail. Such applications on the nail may cause the nails to dry, change color and cause them to break or split easy.
Now if we want to avoid this and we can schedule at least some time at the salon I would recommend using Shellac from Creative Nail Design. This is a nail polish based on the idea of gel nails. 4 coats are applied base coat, 2 coats of polish and top coat. Each coat is dried in the UV lamp just like gel, yet the whole process only takes as long as a regular manicure.
If you do not work too much and too intense with your hands the nail polish should stay on for about 2 weeks!
The day I got my nails done (CND color Fedora)
3 days later! All is in place no chipping and they are still shiny and perfect!

So go ahead and try it!
Yours truly,
