Blue Suede Smoking Slippers

So I have been dying for leopard smoking slippers, but I think these may be my new obsession. These fabulous Steven by Steve Madden blue suede shoes are on super sale at Bloomingdales! For only $59.50, I might be able to afford a leopard pair too!

I couldn’t not share this

Thank you to beautyandmakeupblog for sharing this on FB today.  I just couldn’t not also share it!  We all love the braided fish tail look. In fact it’s the next thing I have to learn to do now that I have mastered braiding. But how cool is this look for your finger nails?

The top picture is easy enough to follow.  You need three colors to choose from to create it. You probably could do more but it might be overwhelming. Best part is that you don’t have to have a steady hand because your lines do not need to be perfect.  You’ll be covering your imperfections with the next color.

Sooooo much fun, and I love how they only did the ring finger design.  I must try this!

This week the Madison Square Garden will be hosting all the Big East teams as they compete to be the best in the Conference

Keywords: big east, big east tournament, ncaa tournament

The Big East tournament will kickoff today with a plethora of great games. DePaul and reigning NCAA champs UConn will start the action at 12. Following that game, my St. John’s Red Storm will take on Pittsburgh at around 2. A full slate of games will be played today, later tonight at around 7 Providence will battle with Seton Hall and at 9 Villanova will try to take down Rutgers. If any of these teams manage to make it to the final game of the Big East Tournament, it will mean they will have to play 5 games in 5 days. UConn accomplished this last year and that seemed to work out perfectly for them. It doesn’t matter how bad of a season any of these teams had up until today, if they can win out, then they will earn a bid to the NCAA tournament.

Hard not to laugh!
