NewsSex and the City Update: Aidan or Mr.Big?

Sex and the City fans everywhere are no doubt greatly anticipating the release of the second movie later this month. If I wasn’t excited by the first trailer, the newest ones have me floored.
 
Upon seeing Carrie’s past love interest, Aidan Shaw, added to the mix, I quickly cried to my roommate, “What are they doing to me?”
 
A lover of the good guy with no tricks up his sleeve, I was a big Aidan fan and disappointed to see him go. Bringing him back now would just be toying with my heart.
 
That’s when I wondered what other fans thought. Were there any second thoughts in regards to losing Aidan, or was Mr. Big the right choice? 

I took a quick poll of fellow LuLu*s workers who watched the show, asking if they’d choose Mr. Big or Aidan for Carrie’s soul mate. Outcome: Mr. Big won by two votes.

While many of us would have picked Aidan ourselves, there was a general agreement that he wasn’t right for Carrie. Now, that I can understand.
 
Now it’s your turn: Who would you choose? And please, no spoilers!

FashionNew Trend: Denim on Denim

Denim is like the comfort food of clothing. Rare is the girl without a pair of blue jeans in her closet, and no matter what sundress I wear, my blue denim crop jacket always seems like the perfect companion.

But denim on denim was a place I dared not venture. That is, until I saw the trend step stylishly on the Spring 2010 runway.

One trick to pulling off the trend is to mix up the washes and textures. Pair a distressed jean with a crisp jacket or a light, chambray top with dark blue skinnies.

 

I love the two looks pictured above from Ralph Lauren and D&G. For even more inspiration, check out the street stylin’ bloggers below found on Lookbook.nu!

BeautyA Few of My Favorite Things…

I thought I would share with you guys my favorite new buys for each week. Most of them are beauty products and face washes (since that’s what I’m addicted to), but anything that strikes my fancy is up for game. I’ll let you know why I love each item and have added it to my routine. (P.S. I bought all these items with my own money and was not paid for my opinion)

First up – Purity Made Simple, One-Step Facial Cleanser.

There’s nothing worse than finding leftover foundation hanging out on your freshly washed face. This cleanser takes care of that, leaving you with pure, supple skin. My skin is very dry, and this does leave a slight “tightness,” but as long as you follow up with moisturizer it shouldn’t be a problem.

Number 2 – Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Non-Dairy Dessert

My sweet tooth seems to go crazy when the weather warms up, and Coconut Bliss really hits the spot. I love that they use Agave sweetener which is gentler on your system. Plus, the coconut milk adds an unbelievable richness.

Number 3 – Maybelline Great Lash, Clear Lash and Brow Gel,

I can’t believe how long I’ve gone without this product in life! Keeping unruly brows in place is no longer an issue. I also love using this gel after regular mascara. It helps separate the lashes and add a little gloss.

Number 4 – DERMAdoctor KP Duty Body Scrub

I bought this scrub last summer and am getting it again! For those annoying dry skin bumps of the winter, this scrub kicks major butt. This is also great for creating a smooth canvas the day before a self tan.  

Share with me one of your favorite things!!

CelebrityHow Dita Does Coachella

Dita Von Teese, queen of burlesque and hot retro style, took in the sights and sounds of this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Dita spent the three-day event looking flawless in a variety of outfits that adapted retro glamour for life under a sunny desert sky.

(Left): I am in love with Dita’s nautical-style, high-waisted trousers. Her updo is also rockin’, managing a put-together look that is also casual.

 

(Above): From the mary jane wedges to the layers of bangles, this is Dita’s awesome version of boho beauty. I love all the earthy tones on that tropical print dress!


(Above): Ladylike charm is what it’s all about in this look. Soft satin ruffles, that polished hat and a pretty chain purse keep Dita looking elegant. Psssst, recognize that lovely lady with her? Yep, it’s Katy Perry looking day-glo pretty.

What was your favorite Dita look?
