Let’s get ready for the Tuesday…or Wednesday bling-tacular spectacular!!!
First thing’s first, don’t forget to check out the last of yesterday’s posts where I talk about my first ever giveaway here!
Haha, ok, now that I’ve got that off my chest, how’s your Hump Day going? Mine is crazy busy (well, I think all the work days of the week are for me!) between “normal” work activities, travel planning for business trips this month and next, as well as the hot issues of the day, I’m not sure how I have time to breathe.
This is actually why Mr. Entropy and I took off for a week to Traverse City, MI-that’s a city that’s right on Lake Michigan on the western side of the state. I’d never been to that part of the state and we’ve been a little cash poor after the emergency, uninsured feline spinal surgery earlier this year.
[Tangent] The little, orange guy in the photo below was having trouble walking at the beginning of this year. When we took him to an emergency specialist the weekend his hind legs completely failed him (we had already taken him to the vet twice in the span of 1.5 weeks), we found out he had ruptured a disc in his spine. This required a very expensive MRI and surgery. He’s no longer as mobile as he once was, and he can’t run and jump like he wants to, but he can stand, walk and use his litter box all by himself now, so we’re pretty pleased. 🙂
Anyways, we rented this beautiful condo that was probably less than a five minute drive from downtown Traverse City that was on the second floor of what was the Northern Michigan Asylum. Yeah, you read that right. The place we stayed used to be a mental institution! Those who know me fairly well would assert that this would be an appropriate venue for us to stay. 😉
So, while we were there. Gilt had a sale on several designs of Converse including styles like Chuck Taylors and Jack Purcells. It was during this sale that I saw these bad boys and HAD TO HAVE THEM!
Yep, those are indeed ombre sequinned Chuck Taylors in lovely, varying shades of blue. I’ve decided that they are my fancy sneakers for when I want to be classy and add a touch of bling to my outfit. 😉
Speaking of bling, I didn’t want to leave you hanging w/ just one shoe pic to get blingy w/ it. The polish I’ve decided to showcase today is by Color Club called Revvvolution from their Spring 2009 collection, “Femme Fatale.” Yep, three “V”s. It’s cooler that way. 😉
As you can see below, it’s a really unique dark grey/black holo much like OPI’s My Private Jet (or so I’m told b/c I don’t own it for comparison). I can’t say enough how gorgeous and amazing this polish is. You could get away w/ just one coat of this stuff, but just for posterity, I used two coats. I also couldn’t decide between all the photos I took so you get to stare at the four below. 🙂
If you really love this, I got this polish from Head2Toe Beauty for only $2.75!
Has anybody else fallen in love w/ Revvvolution?
