Sex On Heels

Meet the newest member to my shoe family... Lita. I am a self proclaimed shoe addict yet I have never purchased a pair of Jeffrey Campbell's until now. I always felt that they were over priced and not very practical for everyday wear. But the high high heels and spikes did catch my eye so a few weeks ago I began my hunt for some JC's. 


I surfed the internet to find a deal but had no luck until I randomly went on UrbanOutfitters.com. They had tons of pairs for 40%-60% off plus I was able to use my 10% off promo code. So what did they cost me you ask.... retail $159 / my price $85.


I chose the classic Lita's in dark brown leather. I figure since the shoe is already so outrageous I might as well keep the embellishments to a minimum. I am shocked at how comfortable they are. They run true to size, I am an 8 1/2. I was wary after reading reviews that JC's run rather tight. Tip* they only are if you don't unlace them properly.

I am totally in love with my Jeffrey Campbell's and already think I need another pair.

Take The Test - KA'OIR Snookilicious

(KA'OIR SNOOKILICIOUS)

 I am not entirely sure when it happened but I have become mildly obsessed with Snooki. Like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, she too is a branding queen! From slippers to sunglasses (which I own too... oh the shame) she markets it all.

From following her on Instagram and Twitter I discovered her lipstick by KA'OIR. The lipstick line from KA'OIR is amazing! The range of colors is outrageous, from beautiful nudes to blues and greens. Ms. Nicole Polizzi's lipstick is appropriately called SNOOKILICIOUS. It is a very wearable matte bright baby pink

I love that the lipstick is matte. It is definitely pigmented and long lasting. Unfortunately I found it to be very drying. The color sets in fine lines and any flakiness is noticeable. I also found it to bleed slightly past the lip line. 

I placed a clear lipgloss over Snookilicious and gave it new life! Maybe it is the novelty of the lipstick that makes me want to love it. I definitely plan to keep wearing my Snookilicous.
