Fashion-forward brand Baby-G has done it once again! This time, they’ve partnered with Ke$ha to design watches that couldn’t tie in any better with her hit song “TiK ToK”. So far, there are two watches available: a red, white, and blue watch inspired by the American flag (LOVE), and a leopard print watch, perfect for fall!

Baby-G is running a sweepstakes and they’ll be giving away four Baby-G watches to four random winners! To enter, like Baby-G’s Facebook page and tweet your favorite Baby-G watch with the hashtag #babyg.  Make sure you check out the Baby-G sweepstakes and I hope you’ll comment back to let me know which watch you like best – sweepstakes rules.


The Scoop From Baby G

  • Launched in September, the Baby-G and Ke$ha collaboration watch models display the head- turning style that make both Ke$ha and Baby-G unique to loyal fans. Ke$ha tackles two of her most signature themes in the design of her timepieces – animal print and All-American. Both watches are also adorned with Ke$ha’s signature “Ke$ha” logo.
  • The BGA200KS-1E harkens to Ke$ha’s wild side, as well as what is arguably the most identifiable theme in Ke$ha’s music, imagery and style, by using an animal print. She designed this watch with a leopard print pattern on the watch’s face and also its black resin strap.
  • For her second design’s look, Ke$ha created the patriotic BG5600KS-7 model, which features the colors and shapes of the American Flag’s imagery with red, white and blue complete with stars.
  • The attention-grabbing watches also have the functionality that sets the Baby-G brand apart. The BGA200KS-1E is shock resistant and 100M water resistant and is equipped with an LED Light, world time from 48 cities and 29 time zones, a daily alarm, 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer, 12/24 hour formats and a mute function. The BG5600KS-7 features 100M water and shock resistance, EL backlight with afterglow, 48-city world time, four daily alarms and one snooze, countdown timer, 1/100 second stopwatch, mute function and 12/24 hour formats.
  • The watches are available at Tourneau, Nordstrom, select Macy’s stores and fashion boutiques, with an MSRP of $120 for the BGA200KS-1E and $99 for the BG5600KS-7. Check out the collection on for more information.

TRESemme Dry Shampoo Review

Have any of you ever tried dry shampoo before? I LOVE it! I try not to wash my hair everyday to help preserve the color and health usually stripped by detergents in shampoo. Dry shampoo helps me get by with an extra day or two without washing it. If you’re new to dry shampoo, it is a wet powder that you spray into your roots that dries to soak up excess oil and makes your hair smell freshly washed. If you have thin hair, its great for adding a little texture.

One of my first reviews was for Salon Grafix Dry Shampoo. At the time, I thought it was the best thing ever, until TRESemmé sent me a bottle of their Fresh Start dry shampoo. I’m going to compare the two so that you can get an idea of what to look for in a dry shampoo.

  • Sprayer: My main problem with the Salon Graffix dry shampoo was the sprayer. I got a buy one, get one half off deal and the sprayer on both bottles was broken. Luckily I was able to return them for replacements, but even the sprayers on the new bottles were spitting at me. The TRESemmé sprayer offers a super-fine even mist of dry shampoo. Who wants clumps of thick powder on top of unwashed hair?
  • Color of Powder: The Salon Graffix dry shampoos come in a variety of colors such as brunette, black, and blonde. I loved this idea at first, but after a while, I found brown overspray on my floor and in my ears lol. Dry shampoo gives your hair a matte finish, so I never spray it on top of my hair. I always spray it in sections under my part and push it through the rest of my hair. Therefore, I prefer the clear/white of the TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo.
  • Availability: I couldn’t find the Salon Grafix dry shampoo anywhere in town, so I had to purchase it online. I have seen the TRESemmé in all drugstores, WalMart, and Target.

Make Your Own Flip Flops Havaianas


Who knew Havaianas had such a wide variety of flip flop sandals to choose from? I’ve loved their women’s sandals for years, in particular their graffiti-style beach flip flops, but they offer so much more!

Had I known 3 years ago that Havaianas carried bridal sandals, that would have made my search for the perfect beach wedding flip flop so much easier. They also expanded their collection to include university flip flops! These are a must have for fall and they’re adding new schools to their line-up often.

What I was most excited to discover about Havaianas is that you can make your own flip flops starting at $25! It’s such a fun and easy 4-step process! You start by selecting your sole and strap colors, and then finish the sandals off with up to 4 embellishments of your choice including crystals, initials, starfish and more. They even have a gallery of famous creations – flip flops designed by celebs for inspiration.

Designing your own sandals is the perfect way to color coordinate with your favorite team, sorority, or just to mix and match your own personal favorite colors. Check out the video below on making your own Havaianas. Is this something you’d try out? If you already have, let us know what you think about your custom kicks.

My favorite pair of jeans all time ever are from Express. I was never into “fitted” jeans, but my friends talked me into a pair from Express, and I’ve never had so many compliments on my booty before lol. My husband definitely appreciated my friend’s advice! This particular pair of jeans have just a bit of stretch to them for comfort and the perfect fit. They quickly became my everyday jeans!

From boot cut to flare jeans and even the ever so popular jean leggings, Express has the denim essentials you need! For a limited time, enter the Express giveaway for a chance to win free jeans! Express will be giving away 50 free pairs of women’s jeans that you could possibly be rockin’ on the sidewalk!


What type of jeans are you missing from your wardrobe?  I can’t wait to try a pair of their jean leggings and I’d love to pick up a pair of wide leg jeans just in time for fall!  I love pairing them with a long tunic and a fitted cropped blazer.  They also have a wide variety of the popular colored denim trend! Do you own any Express jeans? What do you think of them?

Bags Bonanza Handbags Look For Less

The Breakdown

I just discovered Bags Bonanaza and it was love at first browse. I really didn’t know much about the site, so I decided to dive right in and quickly realized that it is very similar to Ebay, but better! Bags Bonanza is an online marketplace for buying and selling handbags faster, while having more fun.

The feature that I like best about Bags Bonanaza is “the obvious”, it’s all about handbags. Unlike Ebay, if I do a search for a particular type of handbag, I’m not going to get some sort of weird result from the housewares department. The interface is so user friendly – all the information I need is so easy to find and their search and browse features are super easy to use. Additionally, I know that they sell new and used handbags, but I didn’t see any washed up old handbags that looked like a purse someone couldn’t get rid of at a garage sale. I also feel protected with the seller ratings and feedback.

The super hot style right now is to accessorize with bright bold colors, so I picked a few handbags that are right on trend including a Mariposa Orange Pleated Satchel, the Big Buddha Yellow Shoulder Strap Tassel Handbag, a vintage Coach Soho Waverly Tote, a bright Green & Gold Envelope Clutch, and a beautiful Rebecca Minkoff Purple 3-Zip Rocker.

Interested in selling a handbag? Here are 7 great reasons to sell on Bonanza:

  • Free listings – It’s free to list on Bonanza. Yes. Always.
  • Low fees – Sold an item? You keep about 97% of the money.
  • Free distribution – Every item you post is sent directly to Google and Bing.
  • Free sales consultation – We have real humans available to help you sell, fast.
  • Checkout options – Use PayPal, Google Checkout, or both.
  • Bonanza-only features – Every store has built-in chat, customization available.
  • Relentless simplicity – We obsess over “the small stuff” to keep selling painless.

Slim Fast Ad

New Year’s resolutions came and went. You’re still not in swimsuit shape. You promised yourself you’d be ready by summertime. Well, it’s here. Summertime. There’s no more time to waste – you need to get slim quick!

That’s where Slim-Fast! comes into play. The Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan Plan helps you lose weight NOW. It’s clinically proven and ridiculously simple.

As simple as 3-2-1:

  • 3: Snacks – Pick 3 nourishing snacks a day – Slim·Fast 100-calorie snack bars, nuts, fruits and/or veggies.
  • 2: Shakes/Meal Bars – Choose two Slim·Fast shakes or meal bars.
  • 1: Balanced Meal – Enjoy one 500-calorie balanced meal per day.

For the first time ever, I’ve found myself making excuses to avoid swimsuits. The beach is my favorite place on earth and I can’t believe I passed up an invitation last weekend. I’ve got a little work to do before I’m beach-bod ready and summer is just days away!

It also doesn’t help that I just finished up my spring cleaning and purged a pile of cute clothes because none of them fit anymore! My husband and I pinky swore to lose a few pounds in a few weeks, so I am definitely going to go pick up the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan – they have so much to choose from! Snacking at work is my main issue, so I’m really looking forward to trying their snack bars and shakes!

If any of this sounds familiar, I hope you’ll give Slim-Fast a try and let me know what you think!
