Now I’m not a paid or even unpaid sponsor for ESSIE to be giving the company this much praise, but rather a new fan of their brightly beautiful colors,  long wear, and quick fast drying polishes. I really adore the soft hues and nicely branded packaging that shows the true color of each inside shade. Like in My before post I featured a Beauty site that did a review on ESSIE MATTE ABOUT YOU . Which just proves that ESSIE is more than just nail Polish alone! There is an entire line of ESSIE based products that you are sure to like. And Luvs there are plenty of other awesome nail polishes at their best out here for our pleasure! Another one of absolute Favorite Polish is *PISTOL POLISH * where this company has the koolest design of creative charm jewelry for their nail polishes that I have ever seen. Around every cap on their polishes is a unique little pistol to compliment the name Pistol Polish. Aside from that the colors on these adorable bottled polishes screams *HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR, meets ROCKSTAR SASS* =} don’t believe Me see for yourself!! And who can forget the Legendary OPI.

♥ ESSIE Manicure ♥

CAM00262-1929205200 {Mint Candy Apple} CAM00264-979377525 So I realized that I almost forgot to show you everyone My super cute manicure, that I had done at My regular nail salon. I guess by the time I actually got home from running all My other errands that same day, I really wasn’t in the mood to show off anything!! But I did manage to remember to snap these two pics in the car really quick between trying to warm My car and keeping My hands warm in the process, hence why My hands are red, cold, and in need of some serious moisturizers. =} To say the least all week it seems like since April actually came, it has been a raining mess in Michigan. I know it’s probably raining daily in other cities and states as well but I just can’t shake the feeling that we here has gotten the most backlash of it all!! On top of that it’s BEAUTIFUL-SpringTime and somehow I always feel the need to still turn on some form of heat. How crazy and backwards is that?? {lol} Back to My manicure I am now obsessed with ESSIE Nail Polish as well as OPI. I think they both are of a extremely amazing quality, not just the names but the overall textures and wear of the products. I was noticing as the lady polished My nails with the Mint Candy Apple and I was impressed on how smooth and sleek the brush applicator glided across My nails so evenly so perfectly it was like {LOVE AT FIRST FEEL} when they met each other!! And when she finished it settled in to be the absolute perfect blend of a Matte finish. Which again is all the rage Rt now 🙂 And the color is a cross between a smooth iced baby teal and a punch of Robins Egg. Which means its all around unique! I do personally highly recommend this color for the transition to lovely Spring. I also love ESSIE “Cute As A Button ” which in My opinion is a great must have Summer pink shade. SO there you go folks~everything you need to know about My Manicure!! Enjoy xoxo

R~I~P TO THE ICONIC LILLY PULITZER 11-10-1931/4-7-2013

The world has lost a truly Beautiful Soul today. And with that being said, I believe a *TRUE* Designer was born~NOT made! LILLY as I will call her for the sake of this reading was completely more than just a Designer. She was an ICONIC FIGURE whom loved the work she did and the lives she touched especially Women!! Best known for her dashing *Floral Florida Inspired Prints* she brought whimsical and prestige to every design she created. During the early 60’s was a time of carefree living, charmed atmospheres, and socialite status, LILLY was amongst the crowd and league all by herself. Infant she was so above her times that that same Floral Beautiful Print I mentioned earlier was of sheer accidental mistake. It came about as when she told her seamstress to make riveting prints that covered up juice spills and stains! This mishap occurred from her herself spilling orange juice on her dress and getting inspired by the bright color and need to “cover up” the awkward feeling of an ugly spot. This launched the very famous and very popular dress wear of Lilly Pulitzer. The likes of her fashions could be seen on the most ELITE Women recognizable still today such as Jacqueline Kennedy on her *Life Magazine Photo Spread.* And countless other Inspirational Women throughout our great history overview! {Lilly Shops} are what lover’s & likers alike often called her stores, because they were moreover than just Women’s Clothing~wearing a Pulitzer original was stepping out into the world as it was you’re canvas and you were the paintbrush dipped in colorful, vivid, one of a kind paint. Though Lilly retired her working hand directly in 1993, she still had a Hugh impact to overseer every single cut, stitch, fabric, pattern, and model that pushed to the forefront carrying the Famous Lilly Pulitzer name. She indeed was a hands on visionary Woman! Who, by friends and family accounts loved to attend her shindig gatherings with Lilly always easy and free styled with a touch of class in her own created cocktail lounge dresses always pleasantly humbled hosting barefoot!! Lilly Pulitzer died at age 81 on April 7, 2013. Her life was not one that she took purely by chance or granted. She in fact was driven by the same force that kept her young at heart all this prosperous years and that was her obsession and love for Fashion and making the American Woman feel happy with themselves!! Her clothes were not just limited to Women’s Dresses but Men’s Clothes, Children wear, Country Club gear, and much more. The way that she incorporated her SouthHampton, West Florida Key Getaway Vacation feel & sense of styles which we’re High Class into wearable clothes for the everyday housewife or woman is remarkable. She designed for the young cause at that time she was young.

I Designed Collections Around My Fancy… Fruits, Vegetables, Politics, or Peacocks! I Entered In With No Business Sense.

~NO ONE EVER TOLD ME I WAS PRETTY WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL. ALL LITTLE GIRLS SHOULD BE TOLD THEY’RE PRETTY, EVEN IF THEY AREN’T~

Reject, outcast, Homeless, Detached, Hopeless, Beautiful, Dysfunctional, Lonely, Sad, Sex~Symbol, Unreliable, Dumb Blonde…. These were ALL the names in which Society deemed this Incredible soul of a Woman!!! So who was this mysterious dark-haired turned blonde Beauty You ask???

~Well her name was {Norma Jeane Mortensen} but we knew her ravishingly as Marilyn Monroe. But really, who was this World Famous soft-spoken blonde dream!! Well that’s exactly what she was a DREAM presented to us as one of the first female actresses who graced the screen and scene in the early 50’s and 60’s. A time in which women in general to a Man had NO place on magazine covers, big screen, or any other public broadcasting for that matter. In those days Women were to be seen as meek and humble ladies, paving the way for men to be outspoken and live! But in Monroe’s case she challenged the minds and opinions of those who often thought she should not be as GLAM and flamboyant as women of her era. She emerged this luminous bright light and dashing beautiful looks that made the prettiest of women question their status. She broke the modes and appeared to be someone or something ahead of her age and time. Far from the seemingly “Common” coming of New Age woman. Despite her troubled and rough upbringing’s of despair and heart breaks of those around her and closest to her, whom she trusted only to love and care for her not as a woman but as a human being, she triumphed and overcame every negative system that was placed at her feet! The life story I read about this precious lady was more than just a good read. It was an eye-opening experience to travel in her heels for just about an hour. She was Brilliant in her thinking as most deceased Great people were. She was so much more than her makeup, elaborate fitting clothes, and shiniest Diamonds. She was a poet in her own rights, an entrepreneur, a very vivid detailed writer, a natural sweetheart to her core, but most importantly she was a graceful woman whose biggest wish was to only act!

~The females including well-known celebrities of our generation if asked about Miss. Monroe would most likely smile at the mention of her name. While being in obsession and in total love with the thought of Monroe based on the Seduction of her big piercing water blue eyes, the extra “wiggle” that she thrust in her walk, or the way she could get any breathing man’s demanding attention just by her presence walking in a room. They all, even Me Awe her strength and vitality as an independent carefree woman. I know personally My favorite two movies of hers is SOME LIKE IT HOT~1959 & GENTLEMAN PREFER BLONDES~1953 these and a list of others made Marilyn Monroe the extraordinary actress and role model of centuries to come and go! And all us ladies know her world-renowned Legendary song in which turned slogan of 1953 “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” 🙂

~She was also ranked 1999’s sixth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute http://www.AFI.com So as You can see Marilyn Monroe was an inspiration to all women whether young or old. And yesterday {8-05-2012} marked her 50 years to the day after her death, which entitled that in her death she was more Famous than as she was alive. So in writing this post I salute and pay homage to the most influential~gorgeously astonishing woman full of character and elegance. Who indirectly taught Me how to be a real lady and love heels. And that You should never give up on your dreams, because dreams do come true….
