NBA is back!

After word that the NBA was in a lock out, I hugged my Celtics t-shirt tighter in hopes that these athletes would stop being so greedy and just sign the deals already! I mean, what would I do all winter without Ray Allen's fluid shooting, Garnett's trash talk, and Pierce's intensity? Watching football 3 days a week, I suppose. With that said, can you imagine the huge smile on my face and fists pumping in the air when I found out the C's will be squeaking their hi-tops on the court this year? Sa-weet! Now, I'm on the lookout for some really cool Celtics gear. I bought a rad (yah, I said it) winter hat last year. This year, look at what I have my eyes set on: 
Boston Celtics Women's adidas Originals Green Court Series Hooded Sweatshirt
I mean, WHAT?! The buttons and precious white Adidas stripes make this girl giddy!  Do you ever just see an item of clothing that you want so badly, you can already feel it's fabric on your body? Well, that's what this sweatshirt does for me. A pair of white Celtics tear-away pants wouldn't hurt either...

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

What's better than Clinique's Black Honey?

Clinique's Black Honey Almost Lipstick has had a cult following probably before my first makeover the summer before I started freshman year in high school (which was ions ago). It looks scary and dark in the tube, but glides on beautifully, leaving behind the perfect my-lips-but-better stain. The cost is $15, which really isn't so bad for a lipstick. 
However, I have recently come to find a product that closely resembles the i-just-ate-a-cherry-popsicle color of Black Honey...

... Maybelline's Baby Lips in "Grapevine!"

And, how cute is the packaging? I'm 31, yes. I am still attracted to color and bubble letters! Deal with it.

At $3 a pop, I say try it. It feels super soft on the lips, leaves behind a sexy sheen, and surprisingly lasts a long time. It comes in a clear, pink, and peach as well. What a great stocking stuffer idea, eh?
Let me know if you try it and how much you love it!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
