These boots were made for … – Sole Society Boots are here

Hello PSers,

I am feeling a little under the weather – so cheering myself up by not doing any real work, writing a blog post and drinking hot cocoa (a.k.a the good life). This post is a little outdated for die hard Sole Society fans (such as I!), but Sole Society has officially inaugurated their FIRST boot collection. Here’s what’s on offer:

Sole Society Olivias

Hello PSers,

Apologies for my infrequent posting (but I finally have a thesis lab and am hopefully moving forward in the PhD track!). I am here to review my latest purchase from Sole Society – the Olivia shoes. It took me a while to get to this as I had to return my first set. I am usually a 7.5 but these shoes seem to run a half size bigger. This was not posted on the shoe description itself (this would be something nice to have before ordering, then exchanging).

Stuck at home and still stylish!

Hey PSers!

Hope all of you who are in Irene’s path are staying safe and dry. I know I am trying to! I’ve been stuck at home since yesterday, so I took the chance for some ME time! 🙂

I’d been meaning to try french tips using hole protectors for a long time…so here are the results!

It’s still Summer…and there’s still time for some fun manicures!

There’s still a bit of summer left and I for one, intend to make full use of it! 🙂 So I took the opportunity to try out a new bright manicure.

I tried to combine a few different summer manicure trends this time – combining a muted color with a brighter color, graphic stripes and painting a single stand out nail.

Here’s the outcome:

Jewelmint Review: Modern Love Set

Morning PSers!

Though it didn’t take me too long to jump on the Jewelmint train, it did take me a little time to make my first purchase….I’d blame my tight graduate student budget! 😦

My first Rue La La purchase

Morning PSers!

I apologise for being away from the blog for so long! But what with moving, and finally getting to see my boyfriend after 2.5 months…things have been pretty crazy!

But things are never too crazy for some online shopping! 🙂 So long ago, I got an email from Paypal a long time ago, asking me to sign up for Rue La La…and the best part was that I got a $20 credit just for signing up through that email.

So  a quick background on Rue La La….it’s another designers-for-less website…along the lines of Gilt, Beyond the Rack, Hautelook, etc. But what also sets them apart, is that they not only have sales for clothing, home accessories, etc. but also for special deals in your city and around the world….sort of like Groupon. They often have great sales on fabulous getaway locations around the world!! If I only had the money…:) Also, every Sunday night is the Rue La La Styleathon with great sales starting at 8pm! Which I really appreciate since most of us are at work during regular 11am sales.

So I finally used my $20 credit to purchase a military green and yellow digital watch by Puma. Here it is:
