Snaps – Tried, Bought, Want

 I love taking pictures of just about anything and everything and I’ve been spending way too many hours to admit playing around with a lot of the photo apps I’ve been able to find. So far I’ “up on”: Aviary, KitCam, Split Pic, Picfx, FrameMagic, A+Signature, Snapseed, PicStitch, PS Express and Pic Collage. I used Pic Collage  above with some snaps from a day of shopping on the last day of 2012. If you know about any that I’ve missed, please let me know.

The nail polishes are Chanel colors Emprise, Fracas & Accessoire from Chanel’s Spring 2013 line up. I found them at Macy’s. I’ve been posting my nail pics on Instagram, but I haven’t worn any of these as a full manicure yet.

The high top platform lace sneakers are from Rachel Roy, also at Macy’s. Now I’ve seen all the cool, hip cats around town rocking their platform high top sneakers. Since I am neither hip nor cool, I just figured they weren’t for me. However, I love these shoes. They stopped me dead in my tracks. I’ll be watching them like a hawk to see if they go on sale.

At The Limited I found some cute pants and a pair of gold toned knot earrings. The fitting room lighting isn’t doing the pants any justice. They are a perfect blush tone.

Finally, I have a little tradition where I have to start the new year with a calendar. Not just any calendar. I mean a calendar carefully chosen as I walk the aisles of Barnes & Nobles for hours thinking about my hopes and dreams for the new year.  Do I want one that’s going to make me laugh, one that will inspire my love of travel,  my love of beautiful things? It’s a serious process, so imagine my shock & horror when I found out days before the end of the year that my local Barnes & Nobles was closing ?!? Shock and horror!?! I tell you. Now I know they sell calendars in lots of other places but it’s not the same. In my dismay I turned to the Internet, and found the one above online. The company had a local branch in my mall so I picked it up on New Year’s Eve for 50% off. So.. Savings: 1. Tradition: 0 (my heart cries out).

Thanks for reading! Be well ^-^

    The wedge sneakers are awesome – I totally want a pair but I don't think I'm cool enough to pull them off. I love that pair you spotted!
