…Smart Shopping…

I would love to share my top 5 favorite online boutiques. I am a thrifty lady, so I can assure you that you will always be able to find something that fits your budget on these sites. A good boutique makes me feel like I have a personal shopper, like they stock their shops just for me! The small boutiques in my town and in the city are where I spend a lot of my free time and money, but having these online boutiques is really inspiring, fun and so easy.

You Should Have…

I recently came across Tom Ford’s 15 Things Ever Man Should Have:

1. A sense of humour

2. A daily read of the newspaper

3. A sport that you love and are good at

4. Tweezers

5. A good cologne that becomes a signature

6. A well cut dark suit

7. A pair of classic black lace up shoes

8. A smart blazer

9. The perfect pair of dark denim jeans.

10. Lots of crisp white cotton shirts.

11. Always new socks and underwear. Throw away the old ones every six months.

12. A classic Tuxedo

13. A beautiful day watch with a metal band

14. The perfect sunglasses

15. Perfect Teeth. If you don’t have them, save up and get them fixed.

I have to admit, I completely agree! And it got me thinking…what are some things every woman should own?? Here are my Top 10, what are yours?

Daring to be different! Garner and Anitson were about the only two ladies who decided to show some color at the Oscars and they both looked gorgeous doing it. I have to note, I could not take my eyes off the gorgeous necklace that graced Jennifer’s neck!

Gushing Over: Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is taking the world by storm. Her acting range is impressive, to say the least… She has been a lead role in blockbusters like X-Men: First Class and The Hunger Games, as well as award winning films like Winter’s Bone and Silver Linings Playbook. Through this award season it has been delightful watching Jennifer receive her awards. Her grace mixed with her sense of humor is absolutely charming. Not only is she receiving acclaim for her acting chops, but she is also ranking high on the best dressed list.

I cannot say enough about how much I loved Silver Linings Playbook.  Jennifer’s performance as Tiffany is painfully beautiful as she connects with Bradley Cooper’s character Pat, helping him deal with his mental illness only to begin to heal her own emotional wounds. I am so excited if she pulls away with Best Actress on Sunday at the Oscars and to see what the gorgeous star will be wearing! She has dazzled us in Christian Dior so far for this award season, but she has not limited herself to only Dior. As the past has shown she cannot go wrong with Calvin Kline! Who do you think Jennifer Lawrence should where to the Oscars?
