You smell delicious!

Tried and true...goes strong all night long...through the smoke and sweat of a dance floor.  Not to mention it smells amazingI've been wearing Michael Kors perfume for years now thanks to a friend with amazing taste!  I dare you to wear this to a smoky Casino or Bingo'll be the only one to come out smelling amazing (tip...spray some in your hair).  How do I know you ask?  Lets just say I know...wink!

I'm sorry what? I was distracted by something shiny!

I have to say it would be a goal in life of mine to be able to wear some kind of sequin item at least every other day of the week...something about the shine makes me feel...well shinny...and that makes me happy!  So here and there I'll wear something with a little sequin...but New Years Eve I'm sporting THIS!

Love Love

I've always been a sucker for love...still am...think I always will be.  So it's fitting that I'm the owner of this necklace...and even more fitting that I found it on my Honeymoon in a super cute boutique!
Zoe Chicco
I prefer white gold...though I've recently warmed up to yellow gold...both are the same price.  If you're feelin' like a baller go ahead and get the version with diamonds in the "o" for a mere $558.00!

What? I can't hear you...

Do I need these?  NO!  Do I want them super bad?  HECK YES! 

Marc By Marc Jacobs why do you have to make these super cute headphones that I don't need but find myself wanting SO BADLY?  It's all I can do to refrain from entering Bloomingdale's Coupon in my google search box to give me the "excuse" I need to buy these for myself!  Wow...even I'm disgusted by myself!  For $68 you can be the super cool proud owner of these headphones...I know I want to be.

Ok, don't judge because right now you're thinking that's pretty cute...don't deny it.  Yes I'm a grown woman who still loves Barbie...but to a degree people...I'm not playing with or buying dolls...I heart grown up Barbie stuff.  I mean if Jonathan Adler is doing a line for Barbie it has to be grown up, right?  These note cards, a part of The Blonde Collection, are a mere $18.00 (includes 8 notes with envelopes) at 
It's like sending a more fabulous version of me in the mail!  Barbie...plastic and fantastic!

Lipstick Queen

I was FOREVER on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick...if you've ever been on the same hunt you'll know what I went through...and for those of you who haven't...imagine stained lips, shades that bleed, reds that look amazing until you get them on and so on.
Then i found Lipstick Queen's Opaque Lipstick in Red Sinner...needless to say I was soon the proud owner of the rest of the items pictured below.  Who says obsessions aren't healthy!
Sinners - Opaque Lipstick $18.00
in Red Sinner

Shine - Hard Core Gloss $22.00
in Red Sinner

BIG BANG Theory - Illusion Gloss $20.00
in Energy

Chinatown - Glossy Pencil $20.00
in Mystery, Chase & Genre

Invisible Liner $18.00

The glamorous the glossy glossy!

I can't remember how long I've been this way but I do know it's a for sure obsession...I have makeup bags dedicated to lip gloss...I have stories of meeting people and all they can remember is our talks of lip gloss!  Seriously.  So here are some of my love love them! 
Too Faced Lip Bronzer $17.00 each
My fave color Sun Bunny

Too Faced Mirror Mirror Lip Gloss $16.00
My fave color Damn I'm Hot & Envy Me

Urban Decay XXX $16.00
My fave colors Guys Love Betsey & Quickie

DuWop Venom Gloss $18.00
My fave colors Lantana & Tulip

Throw it in the bag!

Why is it so hard to find a cute makeup bag that doesn't cost an arm and a leg...and one that wont fall apart in a hot second?  Your guess is as good as I've decided to use this!

I'm pretty sure it wasn't made for the purpose of being a makeup bag but that's what it is for me!  From this Zipper Pouch will set you back a mere $5.99...what could be better than that you ask...well it's also made from 95% recycled post consumer material...SWEET!  Here's hoping this bag holds up longer than my last...but if it doesn't...heck it was only $5.99!

FCKH8.COM is working to raise money to fight for equal rights..."Some chicks marry chicks. Get over it." "Some dudes marry dudes. Get over it."

Love, love, LOVE this cause...that's why I bought the t-shirt and two mini-buttons!  Check out FCKH8.COM for a sweet video and even sweeter gear to support the cause!

$2.00 each

OMG. Shoes!

I fell in LOVE with these lovelies...then I turned them over and saw the price and knew we couldn't "be friends" clearly we were in different income brackets!  That was until the day I happened upon them on the SALE RACK!  I took a deep breath…held it...and turned them over once again…ahhhhhhhh much better.  Better but still spendy…but I knew it was fate and they had to be mine so I bit the bullet and swiped my plastic and we lived happily ever after! 

*Also from Tory Burch...and yes I got these before the Linden do you think I knew to look for a bag from her that was just as fab as these sandals!?!

Bling bling!

So I'd have to say that a big influence on my style is music...

"Everytime I come around yo city"
"Bling bling"
"Pinky ring worth about fifty"
"Bling bling"

These bracelets from Banana Republic will make you feel "iced" like a gangsta rapper without the bank account of one!  $29.50 each (right now buy 2 or more & save 30%)   I went with the Black Diamond (top image) though the Clear (middle image) and Peach (bottom image) are equally Bling-tastic!

Loves it!

So I was on a FOREVER long hunt for the perfect bag with pyramid studs that didn't weigh 15 pounds with nothing in it!

Say hello to the Linden by Tory Burch!

A tad smaller than I'd least this way I can't cram a ton of junk into it making it oober heavy!  You can wear it year round dressing it up or down...think of it as a basic with edge!

If the shoe it!!!

*Disclaimer...just because it fits doesn't mean it can be fugly...just saying.

Good, now that I've made myself clear on that I can explain the title of this entry.  "If the shoe fits, buy it!" comes from my husband...yes...he encourages me!  But...thank the Lord...he has good taste and I'm sure he'd be less encouraging if I was shopping for shoes that cost as much as our mortgage payment! 

This friends is the Sidesaddle from J Shoes...and shocker I got them at SEEDSTORE for $165.00.  The color is even better in person...the heel is the perfect height and the leather is so soft it feels like you're putting your foot in butter!  I think I found a new brand to add to my favorite shoe brands list!

Could this obsession explain my platnium blonde hair?

Barbie. I've been a fan since before I can remember...she wears pink...she plastic and she's perfect!

Perhaps the best memory I have of Barbie…when I discovered my Mom’s collection in my Grandmas basement.  She had the original Barbie Fun & Fold House made of almost 100% cardboard…well fancy cardboard anyway.  Everything was a MILLION times better than anything I had in my collection because…well…it was VINTAGE.  She even had one Barbie that had her hair in an up do…the hair was plastic like most Ken dolls now days only this Barbie had 3 wigs…no joke!  Her plastic hair was brunette…she had a blonde, red and black wig all with different hair styles…every little girls dream!  Or maybe just mine. 

These fabulous finds come from Jonathan Adler's Barbie collection. The coin purse and the specs case will set you back $38.00 each...I've been pining after both of them for some time now!  Why am I so obsessed?  Because these creations are current with a nod to the vintage Barbie that cemented my love/obsession for Barbie in the first place.

With so many obsessions I think this is one I'll save...maybe Santa will bring them to me!

Aloha Sunset

So I’ve been obsessed with this nail polish color for more than a year now…the color Aloha Sunset by Island Girl.  I get a ton of complements…for me the shade provides me with an endless summer…that’s right…I pretty much sport it year round!  It’s almost a hot pink color with a slight touch of neon orange giving it that extra punch of fabulous uniqueness! 

I discovered the polish at the ABC Store in Las Vegas…yes Las Vegas has ABC Stores…six to be exact.  ABC Stores are most known to residence and tourists of the Hawaiian Islands…beyond Hawaii you can find ABC Stores in Guam, Spain and (like I said) Las Vegas.  I got my Island Girl polish in Fashion Show Mall…but you can also hit up the ABC store in Planet Hollywood’s shops…I couldn’t tell you where the other four Las Vegas locations were!   

These polishes are a steal at $2.99 each and come in a variety of colors…though I’m purely obsessed with the Neon Colors.  Another note…these polishes are exclusive to ABC Stores though I’ve found two shades for sale on eBay…but boring ones.  So the next time someone says “Can I bring you back anything from Hawaii, Guam, Spain or Las Vegas?” be sure to tell them you want one of the super cute shades of Island Girl nail polish found at ABC Stores…I recommend Aloha Sunset…duh!

(Top image Aloha Sunset is the first color on the left.)

Savin' up for something fabulous?

My Mom always told me to save my pennies for a rainy day...this was a tad confusing since I'm from Seattle and it rains a lot.  Perhaps I can blame my shopping addiction on the rain...yes...I like that idea. 

Well today I slipped and fell on my credit card...the good news is this ADORABLE Rebecca Minkoff pouch helped break my fall!  Ha!  Thanks to my savvy shopping skills…and the frugalness my Mom instilled in me I got it on the cheap and with free shipping! 

I’m a true believer you can have almost everything you want as long as you’re willing to work for it…I plan to use this lovely as an aid in savin’ up for the next spendy obsession!

I always hear girls saying "OMG, I love her hair...I wish my hair would curl like that.  How does she do that?"  Well ladies "she" doesn't...her stylist does.  But now you can thanks to the "You Curl" from Conair.

"Three words, Fab U Lous."

"Two snaps and a twist!"

If you don't know those quotes come from Men on Film, In Living Color...YouTube it! the spin pin from goody.  It's's two pins (not snaps).  Just twist these two genius pins into your romantic, effortless bun and "whoomp there it is"!  I'm takin' it back to the old school cauz...okay okay.   

Seriously I've been on the hunt for these things ever since I spotted the commercial and they've been sold out everywhere.  I finally found them on for $6.49 and I'm SO glad I did.  These bad boys will keep you steady rockin' all night long and they wont fall out...I even sleep with them in so I don't get the rubber band crease...I wash my hair every other day when possible.  That being said, if your hair is super clean and soft and barely long enough for a bun then they might not stay put for too long...easy fix...add some texture to your hair with hairspray or by adding volume with a few curls and your pins will stay put!

Le pouvoir des fleurs!

Flower power!

Sorry, I couldn't help myself!  Nor could I pass up this purchase!  

This ring is a statement in itself but you don't have to let it be the statement piece in your outfit.  Wear it with something simple like a gray deep v-neck t-shirt,  medium tint destructed denim bottoms and a simple sandal or ballet flat.  Or get fancy in an off white blouse, dark or medium tint denim, a patent nude heel, and some long layered gold necklaces!  Oh, and keep the hair simple and romantic...perhaps I'll add a picture of me rockin' it in the near future!

Don't forget to stop n' smell the roses!

Cozy Fashion with a Rocky Twist!

I fell in love with this from across the room!  The color is amazing but when you put it on...the soft cozy warmth makes you just melt!  

The Rocky Eco-Fleece Zip Hoodie by alternative apparel comes from SEEDSTORE in San Francisco, CA.  Fully worth it's $50.00 price tag in my opinion because not only is it AMAZING but it's a little organic, a little recycled and the yarn (fabric) is even dyed with low impact to the environment.  

Comes in 11 colors of which I have 2...can you see why I've named my blog "my endless obsessions"?

I’ve ALWAYS been obsessed with Halloween, I love plotting my costumes and making decorations…finding new things to bake…I just love Halloween. This laser-cut table runner comes from Crate&Barrel for a mere $29.95…after all you can use it for years to come! Let this be the show stopper to your table or use it as the foundation…I can’t wait to grab some table accessories to pair it with to set the spooky mood…I’m thinking items covered in black and/or orange glitter!!! Can’t wait!

You Fancy Huh?

Yay for!

The Sister Store of J. Crew recently launched it's website and I couldn't be happier!
I recently purchased these three lovelies online...the first of many I fear! All three finds can be worn year round...challenge yourselves ladies...and as much as I like the first necklace it's the second and third that I'm obsessed with because of their vibrant hot pink pop...these two gems can really become the show stopper of an outfit.

I'm in love!

Will Work for Shoes


So, my amazing friends just opened up this AWESOME Men's, Women's & Vintage Goods store in the Inner Richmond (San Francisco) by the name of SEEDSTORE.

They have some amazing brands...but beyond brands they just have plane old awesome stuff! I personally have brands I love...but I don't claim to know them all...and the work these girls have done to find the undiscovered is truly impressive.

Kid in a candy store I's like Christmas every time I'm there! They "let me" open new shipments...I love to see everything "first" to feel the fabric...see the detailing and learn all about the labels. Hence "my endless obsessions". I say "let me" because well...I'm working...but to me it's not work. I work for food, well that's what I said they could pay me in! I love my friends and wouldn't think of letting them pay me!

They did however pay me in shoes, Swedish Hasbeens Red T-Strap Clogs! I'm in love...or should I say obsessed!

MAC Viva Glam is not only a wonderful cause but now they have the perfect pink for your pout...and go figure the spokesperson for said pink shade is none other than Lady Gaga!

I picked up the Lipstick as it launched before the Lipglass (I'm more of a gloss girl)...and to be on the safe side I picked up 2 of the Lipglass' last Thursday when it launched...can't run out after all!

100% of the proceeds go to Men, Women & Children living with HIV/AIDS!

Yes Please

There was no avoiding was truly a matter of time. One of two things were going to was going to sell out or I was going to get lucky and find it on sale...I found it on sale.

They, who ever they are, say you should practice what you I blame toady's purchase on THEM! You see I always say that if you LOVE something you should have it...what ever it long as it doesn't harm anyone (including yourself).
