I have this top on today...I thought the color would wash me out but I look very tan and bronzey in it. Oh, and I wearing a size Large, hehe!
I wanted this vest but not for 24.99 because I will not wear it enough.
I almost got this but it look way too Maternity top on me. Plus the lavender color looked bland on me.
I FINALLY got Target after trying ignore it for about two weeks, to scope out the Patrick Robinson for Target goodies. So, who's been shopping in the 'Burg because the picking were slimmie-slim! Seriously, there wasn't alot left but the sizes for myself( L-XL) were plentiful.I saw none of the batik print stuff, it was all gone. So who's been shopping in the 'Burg with some kinda style because SPBG,no offense, ain't that stylish. Probably Wofford and Converse College girls scooped it all up!( just kidding...I love the 'Burg what would I do with out it:))

Two chattering 2 year olds in their room talking about the cars outside...
A headache and a neck ache
A growling, empty stomach
And two grown a$$ men pitching a baseball in the middle of the street and talking loud.( one is a amateur baseball player for the minor leagues)
And...situations of financial despair on my mind...
I felt like crying. BUT I pressed on...got the boys dressed and fed, myself dressed and fed and had the best cup of home brewed Starbucks coffee:) and imagined my day smooth easy and good. Last night I had been working on my Lookbook so looking at all of the ripped pages and my great book made me happy. I'm good now...til lunch.:)
Last night I decided to pull Self Seduction by Mikki Taylor. I can't understand why she is on that show Charm School with all those hoochies. Maybe she believes her grace will make a difference one of the girls.Or maybe she believes in a check! But by all accounts she's exudes fabulousness. I would love for her give my her pearls of beauty each day. And maybe some of connections in the beauty industry...:)
This weeks Fashion/Beauty Soundtrack is Monifah's Home. It's soooo old, circa 2000, and completely slept on, even then, but I love it so much. My favs are four back to back songs, I Can Tell, Too Late,How You Gonna Love Me, Hard To Say Goodbye.
Okay...I'm hungry again but I'll be back with a Rural Glamour Things to check out at the Drugstore List!

Included with my breakouts is patchy skin...even on my lips! I hate lip balm...probably the only girl on this planet that does. All of them make my mouth look "greasy" not "glossy". But at CVS I discovered Einstein Lip Therapy Hydrating Lip Cream. It's like moisturizer for the lips. Soaks in good and primes my lips for any gloss or lipstick. And I don't look I just ate a 3-piece dark from Auntie M's Mini Mart.
Good folks at Tarte love me. They really do. Because they sent me hands down my mostest, favoritest, lip gloss in the whole world...right now...like this week.:) Tarte Rise and Shine in Mauve is the shizit!!! That's all I got to say. A girl's is looking real black Angelina Jolie with funkiest, sexiest lavender color I've ever since. Even ole' Fashion Boy said, "Your lips look fatty-fat...delicious...*smack on the lips*...and they don't taste like...lipstick *smack on the lips*...What's that MAT( He meant MAC) *smack on the lips*?" He country ya'll...:)

This intersection is what she calls"tha fo' faulk"( the four fork). She always tell me the story of standing alone waiting to catch the school bus into Union for school since they close down the rural schools. She always says she stood alone because the other kids had to help with planting and raising crops and animals and were not allowed to go to school. Her mother didn't allow her to sharecrop. She had to go to school.
