Current Obsessions: March Edition

Dear #theSCNYSblog readers,

Please pardon the slight life-related ramble and then we'll cover the really fun stuff - my current obsessions for the month of March.

Perhaps watching "Bridget Jones's Diary" and "Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason" on Netflix back to back in my current emotional state  wasn't the best idea last night. And by emotional state, some of the feels have stirred up again. Not sure where it's going to go... Stupid feelings. And listening to Ray Charles, Marvin Gay, Sinatra, and Sam Cooke may not be helping me either... Sigh. And so it goes.

Now after getting that vague bit of emotional-ness off my chest or my heart, here's an interesting read I stumbled upon on Elephant Journal - This is How to Love a Leo. That being said, I am not necessarily "full blown" Leo as I am born on the edge of the Cancer-Leo cusp and I've always had an affinity for my Water-signed friends (and ex-boyfriends). Nonetheless, this article had some valid points though I am struggling with my creative soul. I used to be an artist and yet I don't know how to redefine that part of my life. I might venture to the MOMA tomorrow since I have a Friday off (YAY) and the museum is free from 4pm-8pm on Fridays. Perhaps a little art will stir up my creative soul again?

And now back to our regularly scheduled beauty and fashion blogging...

This Blistex Lip Vibrance is awesomesauce. A nice rosy-pink tinted lip balm with a hint of shimmer that has enough color to hold up on it's own but still pairs well with my other lippies as a base coat.

Thank you for keeping my lips soft.

To those who know me well, I tend to wear a lot of black or black and white prints. These blue suede Nine West Deputy flats are a fab way to add a pop of color. You can find them at both Nine West and Nordstrom (both sites also qualify for eBates - yes, that is my referral link). FYI, they do run about half a size large in my opinion or a full size if your foot is narrow.

You're so pretty. Oh so pretty. 

This Forever 21 t-shirt is point blank true. My cat is cuter than your boyfriend. Even if she does shed a lot and wakes me up at 4:00 am for breakfast. But she's still cute.

Oh and I am also obsessed with Manic Panic's Hot Hot Pink hair dye. SEE?!? I need to update my blog profile photo with the new hair but how cool is this color?!

C'mon winter, let it go...

Dear NYC, why did you tempt us last week with some "balmy" above freezing temperatures? And now it's supposed to snow tomorrow... Seriously NYC, let's get it together. I am OVER winter. I am ready to take my winter coat to the dry cleaner and stuff it in the back of my closet.

But even if I have a sweater on, I can still channel spring a bit... Today's day off was at least above freezing so I embraced my Chico's boyfriend jeans (these seem to be this years version) and Nine West "Hannah" mules I purchased last summer. If you want your own pair, you can still find them at Amazon, Nordstrom RACK, or 6pm and trust me, the 3-inch stacked chunky heel is quite "walkable" especially for NYC sidewalks.

Now "if" we get snow tomorrow - I am not wearing these except inside my store and commuting in with snow boots. Fun times! I need to move somewhere warm... Virginia at least was warmer today! Oh how I miss the south...
