The Eyes Really Do Have It

Eye love it!

Eyes are the windows to the soul and eyeshadow is the accessory to the eyelids. Taking eyeshadow to a different universe with increased dramatic, artistic personalities is something many makeup artists are creating.

Roller-Skate Stilettos

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love a pretty and unique pair of high heels. Foot candy is an important fashion element for any wardrobe. So when I read this article, SAINT LAURENT’S ROLLER-SKATE STILETTOS ARE THE BEST THING YOU’LL SEE ALL WEEK, I couldn’t believe the combination of elements designed into such fanciful footwear for that unique fashion statement. It’s quite an art piece.

Although this accessory is a jaw-dropping splurge if you had a lot of disposable income, would you pay £1,995 ($2,638.39) for them? I do love these shoes, but for safety reasons, I can do without the rollers and only take the stilettos. Just sayin’. Click here to read more of this fashion story.

Hat Fun in the Summertime

Hats, Summer, Heat Relief Safety, Straw Hats

Let’s face it, the heat this summer is intense and can be extremely dangerous. Besides wearing sunscreen to protect your skin and staying hydrated while you are outdoors, UV sunglasses help to shield your eyes from harmful sun rays and sun hats are always a fashionable and chic way to stay cool and protect your head and face.

Hats with a wide brim to shade the face, head, ears and neck are great for sun relief safety. Sun hats, straw hats, hemp hats, fedora cloche hats, visors, Safari and Outback hats, ivy caps and baseball caps are fun, fashionable and functional.

Have a little fashion forward fun with hats this summer while you’re staying cool and protected from the brutally hot sun!

Kiddie Tats

Okay, so personally I am not a huge fan of tattoos. No, I am not talking about the character Tattoo played by Herve Villechaize who was the sidekick to Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalban) on the television series “Fantasy Island” (1978-1984). I’m talking about good ole body ink. But, what do you think about toddlers donning such a look?

For those who adorn themselves with this body art, there is a myriad of personal and inspirational reasons why they go through hours of inking their bodies with a sharp needle. No-can-do for me sweetie pie! Now, while I am okay with tattoos on adults, I gasped when I came across an article about a father giving his son an actual ink tattoo because the boy reportedly said he wanted to be like his dad. Totally freaked me out right? I was unable to personally process the sense of logic around that story. But, of course, I am not this child’s parent or guardian either.

I know children are intrigued with peel off stickers they can put on their hands or face painting they have done by an artist at festivals and special events. I explored some more kiddie tattoo related stories, that made me less nervous about the real “ink” deal. I found where some parents were not as extreme with their tot’s tats. They opted for an airbrushed tattoo where designers spray inks on the body that can wash off. I also came across a company called TotTude, founded by Tera Christianson that produces hip, edgy, trendy shirts and body suits with tattooed inspired sleeves to mimic that of real adult tat sleeves. Where have I been?

While these popular tattoo applications and fashion trends are cute, theatrical and not permanent, would you let your youngster sport a look that is this edgy and grown up? Do you think it could send a confused message to children? Or do you see this as a fun and lighthearted fad that is harmless and simply artistic?
