Well, we made it to our destination and I am currently in lovely, exotic, fabulous Bronx, New York. Yes, yes that may not sound all that fabulous BUT we are within one single bus ride of Manhattan which IS ultra fabulous and I've been having a grand time observing what makes a Manhattanite-Socialite woman (at least in appearance). I've broken it down into 4 easy steps for you to recreate at home if you too would like to look like a "true" (read: rich) NY woman:
1. Big huge sunglasses
2. Short flow-y dress, either long sleeve or strapless.
3. Hair to be either in a ponytail at back of neck or long, straight and parted in the middle.
4. Mega flat sandals (yes, unfortuntately the "gladiator" look is upon us) OR super high heels in tropical colors.
And there you have it! Easy peasy, yes?
I will have loads of pictures to share when I get home next week, including many of Toot shopping at the finest boutiques 5th Avenue has to offer and a picture I took of two doors with "Lucy" on one and "Desi" on the other which turned out to be dressing rooms of some someones shooting a movie....hmmmm....
In other, craftier news: I was the July Guest Designer for QTea Kits!
"What?? You can't be serious Maggi! They have the cutest embellishment kits ever!"
"Oh but I am serious my shocked friend, someone was actually smart enough to add me to their design team for a month, it's madness!"
You can go here and here to see what I did for them and to tell them how awesome I am (just kidding! No, I'm serious...nah, just kidding! Maybe...) or you can just scroll down to see my creations with their July kit. This is an Australian based kit club that specializes in vintage-y embellishments you can use in any sort of craft and they are loads of fun:
An 8x8 layout:
And these next three are from my 3x4 altered book:
Not too bad for my first sort of Design Team work ever I think.
Anyhoo, I am checking my e-mail and have been so loving hearing from you all! I haven't been able to get to any of your blogs, BOO, but will try my best to catch up when I get home!
I hope everyone's having a great week!
