LOOK WHAT THE STORK BROUGHT! A Blog Revisited, November 10 2006

Ever so far from what you'd have thought. Stork as inTHE STORK CLUB (a little click there will get you to a cool website about legendary nightclubs). I've been working with the estate of a lovely gal named Eleanor, she of heavenly lingerie fame (see tomorrow's post for that!). A woman with wonderful taste, and well travelled as well. Within this estate I came across these..... Three lipsticks, a parfum & a leather holder, all from the fabled Stork Club. Squealworthy!

Panning for Vintage- A Blog Revisited, November 8 2006

Nice thing is, I can be online & do my vintage thing, the blog thing, the MySpace thing......email, surf, shop. I came in today as a favor of sorts so I had no sitter, so not only am I working at the SHOP, I'm working online AND minding a bored 3 year old. Who just now reminded me she "almost puked three times". Yep. The joys of motherhood....

I've decided to move my old blog here in copy/paste style because it's no longer showing up online AND the pics are hosted by Photobucket which is a nightmare photo host site. Here we go!   A Shiny New Blog Blogs intimidate me, I'll be honest. I know its the new thing, the way to network....read blogs, write blogs, link blogs. Its freaking blogtastic. Bloggerific. Its MIND BLOGGLING. Yep, I said it. Yet I have no idea what I'm doing........I've done my own wee bit o' blogging on MySpace but I made this one a while ago to be able...

Beauty Give-Away!!

beauty bondi sands fashion give away vintage vintage fashion

As some of you may already know, my "day-job" is in beauty and I get a LOT of product. Some I buy on a whim, I get some boxes here and there, I get some gratis. I try to test everything I can. That said- I really, truly have WAY too much! So I've decided to start doing some give-aways! Obviously these things will be un-used. I've got self-tanners, makeup, skincare, sunscreen, masks...you name it! Tonight my ask is that you follow me on Instagram. That's it. Click here, or the image above, and follow me.
