Olsen Twins: look like twins again!

They are back to the little blonde bombshells they were a few years ago, when guys cheered when they turned 18. (LAME!--some of my friends actually couldn't wait) Anyway, today the MK and A were spotted at "the Toronto set of MuchOnDemand, the Canuck version of Total Request Live. " (

They looked fantastic! "Both girls sported heavy black liner, but MK favored a matte red lip while Ashley went with a creamy nude pout. A small difference, yes, but one that definitely made it easier to tell them apart now that they’ve both gone back to blonde. Which look do you prefer?"

I have to say I love love love the fact they are both blonde again. I've always been fascinated by them since their Full House days and since we are the same age.

What do you think? Love or hate the Olsen twins?

*sigh* Its August, but I'm ready for boots!

The title says it all. I am ready to wear boots and dresses, jeans, tights, leggings, and more. I popped into payless earlier this week to see if Christian Siriano’s new line was in yet (the clerk didn’t even know about them) but they weren’t. I did however get wrapped up at looking at their boots. They had brown, black, grey and even turquoise, which I was captivated by!

This got me started on daydreaming about boots. Last year, I got a killer pair of black high heeled boots, a slouchy gray suede pair, and some black ankle boots. The only ones I’m still completely enamored by are the black high-heeled! I’m loving the idea of motorcycle boots, flat black boots, and a hotter pair of ankle boots! Anyway, here are a few pairs I’m digging!

What about you? What kind of boots are you looking forward to wearing?

Doing the Dye!

Last night I attended a going away dinner for a friend, and for some reason the conversation turned to eyelashes. The girl across from me was a natural blonde and mentioned that her eyelashes are so light that she hates spending 15 min putting on mascara.

Then she said something that made my jaw drop.

She gets her eyelashes dyed. DYED! Maybe I've been living in a dark hole, but I've never heard of it. She said its not that expensive, and that it lasts about 6 weeks.

I have to say I'm definetly intrigued! I hate putting on mascara every day cause I tend to pick it off, leading to no eyelashes which is NO BUENO!

I'm thinking of trying it.

Have you ever heard of dying your eyelashes? Do you dye your eyelashes? What is it like? What do you think?

Hair Dilemma!

I'm in a pickle! I got the most adorabe, expensive haircut back in May. I cut off about 5 inches to get a cute "lob--long bob" with bangs. I have terribly missed my long hair but did love my fabulous new haircut. Well fast forward 3 months later, my hair has grown out to a length I'm super happy with, just about in between long and where it

was. But I'm starting to get split ends and worried that its gonna that as it keeps growning its gonna loose its "lob" shape. So I'm gonna get a trim.

Dilemma: My last hair appointment was expensive, it included some coloring too. I don't have that kind of money now and would really prefer to just go to a Mastercuts type place for a quick trim with little cost.

But, I'm afraid that they'll mess up my shape!! So what do I do?

A) Fork over the over $40 for the TRIM that I know will turn out right, but will make my wallet sad?

B) Go to a quick place where I can get out for under $20 and hope the cut goes well?

What would you do?

Comfy is the way, today.

Today, I appeal to your comfy senses, instead of your fashionista senses. We all have are beautiful dresses, edgy tops, rocker heels and so on…but we also have our comfy clothes. Why? Because you’re not going to wear your 5 inch stilettos and liquid leggings to clean in right! Anyway, everyone has a few t-shirts and bottoms (shorts, sweatpants, yoga pants etc) that you lounge, do chores, or workout in. My absolute favorite and most versatile “do-all” piece is a pair of black Soffe shorts! Here are a couple reasons I love my pair:

They are perfect for a workout. The breathable and stretchy material allows me to move, bend and sweat with out feeling constricted like I would by elastic waistbands and itchy poly-blend materials.

Waking up at the crack of dawn to take my puppy outside, I prefer to look like I didn’t just roll out of bed. So the penguin covered pants or pink camo boxers just won’t work. (With the Soffe shorts it looks like I could have been working out?!)

If someone pops over for a visit unexpectedly, I won’t feel as if I look like a slob. A t-shirt and the Soffe shorts is better than the aforementioned penguin pants.

Also, If I have to run to the local drug or grocery store for 1 item, Soffe shorts are a better choice than any pj bottoms or sweatpants(which I’ve seen many people wear many places. I personally think it looks tacky)

Most of all, I can clean, cook, and lounge and feel completely comfortable, not worrying if I get them really dirty.

The other fantastic thing: $7.99. Who can beat that price?!?!

Soffe shorts are definitely my go-to comfortable clothing.

What about you? Do you wear Soffe shorts? What’s your go-to comfy do all item?

Perez goes Coco for Fashion!

I'm pretty sure everyone has heard of Perez Hilton. He's the hottest gossip blogger, I think, on the planet. I am addicted to his site and check probably 3 or more times a day. Anyway, if you don't know or just haven't been keeping up lately, Perez is making his mark in other areas besides drawing inappropriate objects on celebrity pictures. Lately, he's moved into starting a record label and a tour.

Well ladies and gents, He's moved to fashion! Perez Hilton presents a sister site to his new fashion site: (after Coco Chanel, get it?)

In an exclusive interview with The Thread's, Sarah Bernard, he revealed that the new site will launch Aug. 13 (tomorrow!!!). He also took on questions about his critics, Vogue Editor-Anna Wintour, and his love for Heidi! Read the whole "perezcious" interview here!

The Thread is a special section of A place I hold close, since I also put most of my posts on there, and since they've given me the incredible opportunity to be a Shine Beauty Guru. I <3 shine!

5 Ways to Stay Feeling Fab in Horrendous Heat

August is the worst of the summer months. The temperature is beyond just hot and it is almost impossible to feel sexy. Clothes feel tight and sticky; make up feels heavy and pore-clogging. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are 5 products to make yourself feel sexier quickly and easily!

Ponytail Holder-There is nothing easier than throwing your hair up in a ponytail, chignon, or bun. Whether yours is low or high, you’ll look instantly chic, and won’t have that nasty neck sweat. My favorite is the Goody Ouchless Elastics in Neutrals.

  • Sunglasses-Aviators, Wayfarers, Round, Square or Oversize-they all look good. If you have to be outside and don’t feel like caking on makeup, throw on a pair of sunglasses! No one will ever know you have a naked face, and better yet it’ll make you seem mysterious! Every girl should have a little mystery to them! I love cute cheap ones like these from Forever 21.

  • Razor-In the heat of summer, nothing feels better than smooth shaven legs. Waxing and depilatories take too long. The fastest way to silky gams-a razor. Grab a can of shaving cream or even your conditioner bottle and get to work! I’ve been known to nab some of my boyfriend’s disposable razor for an extra close shave but my normal razor is a Venus!

  • Light Lotion/Moisturizer-Lotion and Moisturizer are two of my favorite things, but during summer, thick creamy lotion just won’t do. Nothing is worse than sweaty lotiony skin underneath your clothes. But the sun and water can drain the moisture out of your skin, so lotion/moisturizer is necessary. Gel based lotions are perfect for summer. You get all the moisture without the gross creamy feel afterward. Nivea’s Smooth Sensation is one of my favorite brands.

  • Self-Tanner-No summer is complete with out golden tan skin. The safest way to get a bronze glow is by self-tanner. Formulas have come a long way over the years and it is easier than ever to swipe on some self-tanner and look brown, not orange. My favorite is Loreal Sublime Bronze Towelettes. They are quick easy and fast drying.

Beat the heat, while looking hot yourself!

When is it appropriate to go sleeveless to the office? And at what age?

Its 101 degrees here. My office building was built in 1888 and doesn't have great A/C. Thus, I'm constantly hot.
My usual wardrobe has sleeves but lately I've been going sleeveless, wearing dresses and tops (not spaghettie straps, but with about 2 to 3 inches thick straps). Its just too too hot to wear a jacket or cardi.

Now, under any other circumstance I would never ever ever ever do this. I think its inappropriate in a professional setting. So, why do I wear it?

My boss wears sleeveless tops and "dress" shorts. So my thinking is, if she does it, I can too.

I'm never gonna wear shorts at my office, even if they are dressy. We are not some high fashion office, just average. And shorts are not in my comfort zone. But sleeveless is different. I mean I'm 23 with semi-toned/tan arms and I know it won't look bad.

My boss on the other hand is 65. The first time I saw her in a sleeveless shirt and dress shorts I was shocked. Because I didn't realize it was ok office attire

Am I in the minority to think that it is slightly innapropriate for her to be wearing these clothes, to the office? Would you wear sleeveless to the office? Would you were shorts to the office?

Look for the day! What do you think?

Rihanna was spotted this week in NYC wearing this cute little number! I happen to love this patterened dress. Its perfect for summer! And her simple black sunglasses still make statement.
But those shoes! They are fabulous no doubt! I'm not sure I love them with this sweetllittle dress.
Seems they are more night-out wear, but again this is Rihanna who shatters more fashion walls everyday!
What do you think of this outfit? Like it or Leave it?

2 stores that my town needs!

Tyler, Tx  is only so big, but more and more stores are being built every day.  Well, the stores that I want are NOT being built.  Here are the two stores I think Tyler should have and why:

1) Forever 21

We need a Forever 21.  I’m 23 and feel like I’m outgrowing some of the styles at Wet Seal and Body Central.  But I’m not quite ready to go to the Misses department of Dillard's or Macy’s.  (Tyler has a much older population thus the stores cater to them) Not only does it happen to be my favorite store, Forever 21 offers the perfect balance of the cute trendy fashions and “real world” appropriate clothes.  Ok, so I’m really biased for F21, but Tyler still needs one.

2) Sephora/Ulta

This is technically 2 different stores, but Tyler needs some kind of beauty store.  I happen to love both of these stores because they both offer some of my favorite brands.


Tyler doesn’t have a store where I can buy all my beauty products and can compare  prices all in one stop.  We NEED one!!!


Well I want these stores to come NOW.  I NEED THEM!  Ha-ha, just kidding. Are their any stores that you want in your town?
