Shoe Lust

I can't decide if I like the brown or black one more but I am learning towards the brown since I have an overabundance of black heels and not one single pair of brown ones... suggestions please?

I also really want these Target heels, they look almost identical to the Sergio Rossi ones. I don't like the exposed zipper on the Sergio Rossi anyway so I'm glad the Target pair doesn't have them! I tried them on in store and they are surprisingly very comfortable and easy to walk in. That's a lot coming from me since I am quite clumsy when it comes to heels...

I like the gladiator look, but only when it's done right without a million straps. I like these DKNY sandals because they don't overload with the caged look. To me they are reminiscent of the Elizabeth and James ones but not as extreme.

Kiss on the Lips

After seeing this sexy photo...

I was sold.
(how does he even make applying lip balm look so smoooooth?!)

I've been looking for a new lip balm to try since Burt's Bees always leaves not so pleasant white residue around my lips and Vaseline just gets too messy. After seeing my favorite Mr. Ed Westwick using these EOS Lip Spheres I had to test them out for myself! They're made with antioxidant-rich Vitamin E, soothing shea butter, and jojoba oil to keep lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth. Did I mention that they're 100% natural and petrolatum and paraben free? Perfection.

I couldn't decide which yummy flavor of the three: Honeysuckle Honeydew, Summer Fruit, or Sweet Mint to try so I just made things easier for myself and ordered all three online! :) I've only had the chance to try the Honeysuckle Honeydew and it is so delicious! The people at EOS told me these will be available at larger Rite Aid stores this week and in Walgreens coming August. Just be careful not to drop them on the floor like I did since they tend to roll. Is it creepy that I'm thinking about how this is (possibly *crosses finger*) the closest to Ed's lips I'll ever be? Oh, Chuck Bass, how I pine for thee... Sorry, still being creepy here.

p.s. to anyone who got my title reference, congrats! you're a Gossip Girl junkie like me :)

Fork in the Road

I don't know what to do with this blog anymore!

Should I make it more personal, journal-like?
I do miss long xanga entries...
Should I stick to a beauty/fashion theme?
I read beauty/fashion blogs religiously...
Should I remain anonymous?
I am a little shy about coming out...
Should I post more photos of my life?
Not sure how I feel about strangers getting a peek into my life...

I like anonymity but I also want to be able to look back at this in however many years and have memories preserved of the most random things, not of just purely superficial banter. Oh choices...

What I really should do is do whatever the hell I want! I don't know why I always want to follow "rules" and a "theme" anyway... says a lot about how I live my life doesn't it?
