Current Obsessions

Happy Friday Everyone!  How was your week?  Mine was busy!  Went to see one of my favorite bands (Gin Blossoms) on Tuesday and it was EPIC, then I had a networking event at Perle in Market Square, and now I get to focus on the GA/GI fashion show for the rest of the week and into the weekend (more of that to come).  Here's a couple little things to spark your interest.  Have a safe and Happy Weekend!!

New York Fashion Week Spring 2014

It is a life goal of mine to one day go to NYC Fashion Week. It is currently happening as we speak and every time I think of it a little part of me dies for not being there.  Just being immersed in that culture; the designers, the shows, the photographers, the parties - one day.  :)

A Rockabilly Community

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a different decade?  I came across this the other day and found it fascinating. This community lives, breathes, and IS the 50's.  From the way they dress to their home decor, everything about this place is like a scene right out Leave It To Beaver.  Check out the gallery of photos from this community here.

Wake Up Makeup


This weather has made my skin look literally gray (ok and maybe my lack of sleep and water isn't helping either).  I wanted to find a tutorial on how to wake up your look without using too much makeup and staying fairly natural looking.  Lisa Eldridge is slowly becoming one of favorite makeup artists to watch on YouTube; everything she does looks so fresh and not overdone.  Her tutorials are easy to follow and she explains things very well (plus her accent is just adorable).  Here, she teaches us how to wake up our faces for a fresh and natural look. Check out this tutorial on how to look fresh faced and alive.

This Video

I confess, I bawled when I watched this.  This video is just beautiful, the little girl experiences rain for the first time and her reaction is the epitome of pure joy.  Very heart warming, grab the tissues.


Another life goal of mine is to one day go to France.  I've heard from many sources the French don't go out of their way to cater to non French speaking people, especially American tourists.  Therefore, I've been trying to find easy ways to learn French that don't take away from my schedule.  Duolingo (which was created in Pittsburgh!!) is a FREE, very easy, very flexible, interactive way of learning any language.  It has a hands on approach to it and grades you just like back in high school.  It's amazing how quickly and easily I've been picking it up.  Pretty soon I'll be une femme qui parle fran├žais in no time!
