Saturday Surfing: Birds of Paradise, Funky Earrings and Angelina Jolie

Published in: Just For Fun

Hey, hey, cutie pie! Howzit going today? Tabs and I are just sitting here at my desk reading the December issue of Vogue. He’s been eyeing the picture of Angelia Jolie on the cover with great interest.


He’s a BIG (about 15 pounds) fan of hers and also hopes to make the jump from modeling into movies and philanthropy. πŸ™‚

I’m mesmerized by Angie’s eye look here… That brownish beige smokey eye looks killer, right? It turns out the eyeshadows are from the Dolce & Gabbana Desert Quad (the one from the Ethereal Beauty Holiday Collection). I think I might give the look a try this afternoon, and if it turns out okay, I’ll take some pictures.

Speaking of pictures, remember the chandelier earrings I had on yesterday?

I found them at Forever 21 last week for — I think it was $7? They’re my new favorite pair because they seem to go with everything, I guess because they’re so busy and dangly. Here I’m wearing them with a green, yellow, gray and purple top, but I think they even look cute with basic black and white tops too (the other end of the spectrum).

Really, you can’t beat the price. $7 is less than lunch (well, it’s less than a $7 lunch)!

And that leads to my tummy, which is rumbling like crazy. Hmm… How about heading to Panera for a chai latte and tomato soup? YUM! Doesn’t that sound delish?!
