Red Bottoms

The other day while I was lounging around on twitter a particular tweet caught my eye. It read "Getting ready for the Black Tie & Red Bottom event tonight." I found myself intrigued until moments later when it hit me. I was immediately faced with the fact that if I was ever invited to such an event I would be out of luck since I do not own a pair of Red Bottoms yet. Louboutin's also known as "Red Bottoms" is today's most sought after shoe. "Christian Louboutin's trademark glossy red soles are an undisputed stamp of fashion excellence." Celebrities love to rock them, rappers love to rhyme about them, and woman love how sexy those red soles look with anything. With that said, I find it time to invest in my first pair of Red Bottoms! This will NOT be an impulsive purchase but one that consists of planning, bargain searching and making sure I get the cutest pair I can possibly find. Thus far here are a few that caught my eye. What do you think? The 4th one is totally amazing.

Holy Kohl's It's Vera Wang!

I have never been a huge fan of Kohl's. It was never personal but I always equated it to a Sears or JC Penny. Imagine my surprised when I went there to look for a crock pot and walked out with these! These Vera Wang beauties was a steal and they do exactly what I like my shoes to do.....they command attention. I paired these leopard peep toes with black skinny pants and a natural top and it looked fabulous. The compliments poured in and as I listened to people rant about how pricey they probably was I smirked to myself at the irony that I had actually purchased them from Kohl's.

At about 3.5 inches, my new leopard Vera's are incredibly comfortable. While I have only worn them once I already know they will look great with jeans, shorts, skirts, leggings and dresses. As I walked around the store I suprisingly found quite a few items that caught my eye. I left with only the purchase of the shoes but that was due to extreme discipline. I am totally pleased with my new Kohl's purchase and the JC Penny/Sears theory has vanished.

Some of the the new collections recently launched at Kohl's are: Jennifer Lopez, Vera Wang, Lauren Conrad and Daisy Fuentes to name a few. If you are like me and have never stepped into a Kohl's before, go ahead and check it out you will be surprised at what your find.

What have you got from Kohl's lately?

Schweddy Balls Anyone???

I saw this and I could not help but laugh. Ben & Jerry's has released a new flavor of ice cream named after a Saturday Night Live skit called Schweddy Ball's. The provocative name is a tribute to the 1998 skit in which Alec Baldwin plays a baker who is trying to promote his rum balls, cheese balls and popcorn balls as "Schweddy Balls." I personally find the name hilarious and I really found myself chuckling when I first read the flavor. Advertising and marketing companies are always looking to step outside the box and come up with unique ideas, I think the A&M team at Ben & Jerry's nailed this one.

The new flavor is a mixture of rum flavored ice cream with fudge covered rum balls and chocolate malt balls. Not only does this sound absolutely delish the name of the flavor yields a automatic childlike grin from anyone just saying it.

Schweddy Balls is not the first provocative flavor from Ben & Jerry's. Schweddy Balls will join the group with similar enticing flavors such as Karamel Sutra, Magic Brownies and at one point there was even Hubby Hubby. As if eating ice cream is not fun enough, Ben & Jerry's has found a way to make it just a little more exciting.

What is your favorite provocative Ben & Jerry's ice cream?

I Knew I Liked Him When.....

There is always that moment when you date someone and you find yourself doing something ridiculous that undoubtly tells you that you must really like this person. For me this moment occured after a night of innocent fun. While the state was declared with a category 3 hurricane here I was nestled away with my cutie playing board games, drinking wine and watching movies. Just in case for once the new casters was not exaggerating and were right in their predictions neither one of us wanted to get stranded alone. Though we would not admit to it and we both played it cool, we used that night as the perfect night to conveinently hang out. It is something to be said when you can hang out with a man and have good clean fun without any funny business going on.

As the night progressed the weather progressed as well. We experienced severe winds and heavy rains and at one point the electric even went out. My hottie crashed on my couch so he wouldnt get blown away and although I played it as cool as a cucumber I was more that happy to let him stay. When I awoke up I came out and peaked on him and I realized he was still sleeping. I tiptoed to the bathroom, freshened up and and then did something I will never forget. I curled my hair! Here it was 8:00 on a Saturday morning and I was secretly curling my hair so my hottie would think I just woke up looking this great. As I yawned it hit me...I must really like this guy if I am here curling my hair at 8 am.

It's funny the things woman will do when we have a new crush.

What are some of your funny eye opening moments when you first realized you like someone?

Is Kim K an Attention Whore??

Over the past few years America has become infatuated with Kim Kardashian. She is a beautiful girl, has an amazing fashion sense and from the goodie too shoe she appears to be on Keeping Up With The Kardashians we almost have to remind ourselves that this is the same girl who made a sex tape with Ray J Brandy's brother.

In a recent conversation with a friend she referred to Kim K. as an "attention whore". I was a little shocked by that particular label however I was couldn't necessarily disagree. From the love affair with Reggie Bush to the break up with Reggie Bush, the Playboy pose, the butt x-rays, the 3 month post Reggie Bush boyfriend, the 6 month relationship to Kris Humphries followed by an fairytale engagement which followed a 20 million dollar wedding to now the honeymoon which now has lead to speculation of a baby, one must wonder does Kim K. know the meaning of private or is she an attention whore?

Never giving much thought before to the awful title "attention whore" I recently read Kim K. was tweeting from her honeymoon in Italy and that there were even pictures of her and Kris on their honeymoon. It appears that some of life's most intimate moments Kim K. has willingly exploited them herself and in exchange she has made millions in doing so. This same self exploitation has allowed her to make a brand for herself earning a net worth of at least 35 million dollars.

In the end one must wonder is it worth it?

Do you think Kim K. is an attention whore and if it made you millions would you do the same?

One More Reason Why We Love B!

Is it me or is the thought a baby between Beyonce and Jayz exciting. The world's favorite celebrity couple is now expecting and Beyonce could not have shared the news in a more astonishing way. 4 days ago at the VMA's after performing Love On Top Beyonce slyly revealed her baby bump as a thrillful Jay-Z jumped up and down. A definite publicity stunt but for a couple who has always been so private about their relationship we loved it. The baby is expected in January. Congrats to the happy couple!!!

What do you think of how the couple revealed the news?
