Baubles, Bangles and Beads

Want some accessories and sparkle without breaking the bank?  Glamour and Cosmo have some ideas for you. Glamour also has some ideas on what toenail polish you should get to go with these sandals. Since Easter was eight degrees colder than Christmas, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the piggy toes can make their seasonal debut soon.

Since it’s April and there may be some more showers on the way, the New York Times did a feature on umbrellas.  They’re a welcome dash of color on a dreary day.  Just watch out for the Cartier ad on the side of the page, it likes to pop open.

It’s amazing what a difference the right makeup can make. Allure has put together a slideshow on how wearing makeup incorrectly can age you up to a couple of years. This brings me to my new fave, Bare Escentuals. I’d watched the infomercial and thought whatever, that stuff isn’t real.  However, when my sister started wearing it, I started thinking differently. It provides coverage and might actually improve your skin. Nice.

NY  Times photographer Bill Cunningham got some great pictures of Easter in NYC.  Cunningham, who has been taking shots since World War II, gives commentary to his pictures. Definitely worth watching.

Esquire’s list of Best Dressed Real Men has some Philly Flavor.

And while not exactly local, the show Britain’s Got Talent has had some amazing contestants as of late. I don’t want to give it away, so just watch this singer and these dancers.
