8 for 10

According to an article on MSN this morning, the following are the 10 Accessories every woman should own. I usually don’t agree with the ‘lists’ that they come up with, but I have to say that I like, and agree with, this one!

I’m 8 for 10.... what about you??

1. Pumps. Whether they have pointy, round, or square toes, these classic heels look smart at work and sexy at night. Always have a black pair.

2. Flats. Simple ballet slippers or skimmers are a more comfortable answer to the all-purpose pump. They’re great for when you’re on the go.

3. Diamonds. Rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets: No matter what form they come in, these sparkly stones will always shine — even if you are wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

4. Pearls. A classic, ladylike staple, these lustrous beads, as tidy little earrings or a single or multistrand necklace, always add polish and elegance to your outfit.

5. A structured bag. In a medium size, a sturdy, top-handle leather bag will serve you well every day.

6. A clutch. For evening, it’s essential. A slim, sleek little bag that fits just the necessities is the piece to carry at night.

7. A belt. This piece can turn an ensemble from sloppy to sleek in an instant. It’s a good idea to have multiple waist cinchers — thin, medium, and wide — in your closet.

8. A cocktail ring. Give your evening style a glam punch with a big-stoned bauble. Try bold, colorful stones for added effect.

9. A cuff. A thick bracelet in gold, silver, or enamel is a timeless accent and works day or night.

10. A metal watch. A high-quality, classic timepiece, like a tank or a bracelet style — whether gold or stainless steel — will last you a lifetime.

A 'sorta' update

I've become quite a lazy blogger lately. The problem being that I have WAY too many things to blog about, and no where near enough time to do it in!!

Here is a link to my friend Courtney's blog. She's a much better writer than I am, so just read her post, and enjoy the pictures!!! Gatta love those flapper dresses!!

This weekend, I had my first Bridal Shower!! Courtney, Diana, Megan and Sheri did an excellent job!! Man, I'm going to miss these girls!

The 'Party Planners' - Sheri, Megan, Me, Courtney, and Diana

The AMAZING food!! Everything was home made, and tasted great!

Me and the gifts!! Which may or may not have been about 90% lingerie :)

I could easily have blogged about many other things - such as:
-Belly Dancing classes
-The 'Man Shower' that Matt's friends threw for him
-Being 'homeless'
-My adventures in house/Dog sitting for a friend of mine this week
-Getting my Endowments taken out in the Portland Temple
-Wedding planning and the details of that
-All the car troubles that Matt and I have been having
-The annual Ward Camp out
-My mom's quick trip to Portland
-Matt's first Pedicure
-Movies in the Park on hot summer nights
-My first experience at the Crepe Cart in downtown
-The amazing Portland Cello Project concert last weekend
-My first Monster Truck rally
-All the things that I'm going to miss about Portland
....... and the list goes on.

But that's all for now!!!
