Fun and easy Halloween crafts to do with the kids! If I can do them, YOU can certainly do them too! :)  

Football Fanfare!

It’s football season! A few weeks ago, I had you dressed and ready to go to the games and/or the watch parties. NOW, let’s take it one step further for all of those Oklahoma collegiate fans….

GIFTS! GIFTS! GIFTS! GIFTS! 

Whether it is a gift for yourself, to spruce up a watch party, and/or to give as a hostess gift, we have you set up certainly to make a touchdown! So many fun things from coolers to totes, whimsy plastic cups, coozies, and yummy treats for kids (big kids too!)! The chevron cooler is a ‘must have’ this football season. One, because it’s in your favorite school colors and you’re ‘on trend’ with the chevron print. It’s everywhere this season!

There are so many choices, it is hard to choose! I’m in love with the darling picture frames that have an element of ‘old school/throwback’ feel. The stone signs are perfect for the ‘die hard fan’ and/or the hostess. (“Love, Laughter, and Cowboys Welcome.” – “Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Sooners”) As well serving up your guest’s favorite beverages in the fun and funky wine and pilsner glasses.

If you are the one to throw a watch party for this season’s football games, you will definitely need these! These platters are certain to liven up the ‘playing field’ when it comes to the food. Super cute!

And, according to my sources, these are FANTASTIC to serve to the non-beer drinkers at your football watch parties. It is wine-a-rita! Add these to your favorite bottle of wine and you will have a slush, a ‘wine-a-rita’, if you will! They come in a variety of flavors and so popular they can’t keep them on the shelves. Another touchdown for your female football guests! 

Happy Shopping for all of those fabulous football fans!

Transformed…Inside and Out!

FNOTulsa Makeover Contestants - Lynn (left) and Julie (right)

I had the opportunity, in the past few months, to participate in Fashion’s Night Out Tulsa – Makeover Contest. (For those of you that don’t know what Fashion’s Night Out is..you NEED to know about it and will tell you in a minute!) I  was part of a team of ‘specialists’ (hair, makeup, fashion stylists) that helped ‘transform’ the top two contestants, Julie and Lynn, and have the community vote for the ‘most transformed’. (Voting is still open at www.FNOTulsa.com)

Julie - at Little Black Dress

 

I had the pleasure of working with Julie. I fell in love with her immediately, because of her kind and gracious demeanor. As well as,  she has a smile that lights up a room. Julie is a busy mom who is looking to go back to work, so we kept that in mind when shopping for her. I wanted her to step outside of the ‘safe zone’ a little bit and find something with a little ‘edge’. Something that could go to work during the day, but, still be used to create a look for a night on the town too. 

We started at Little Black Dress (Brookside, Tulsa). We found a beautifully, colored, tribal print, uneven hem, blouse that can be easily worn with a straight skirt or straight leg dress pant for work and throw it on with a pair of dark denim for an evening out. We, then, headed to J.Cole Shoes (Riverside – King’s Landing) to compliment the look. Julie had been ‘doing her homework’ and read about how every woman’s closet should have a good nude/neutral shoe. It lengthens the look of the leg. So, off we went to in search of the perfect nude shoe. We found a beautiful Calvin Kein number that I’m still wondering why I haven’t gone back to get for myself. Beautiful! 

 

Here is what I loved about this whole experience. One, this wasn’t your ‘typical makeover’ where you whisk them in, run them through the paces and spit out the final result. We wanted the contestants to really be able to learn from each specialist, so they could continue on their own. And, two, it was very simple things that Julie said that made my heart fill with joy. She was so excited that I helped find her ‘inner fashionista’ again. She knew her fashionista side was in there, she had just lost track of her over the years. And, what really brought me to tears was the fact that she “already considered herself a winner whether she wins the final transformation or not”. Then, I knew, our job was complete. We had found that confidence and inner beauty that was already within her…it had just been shadowed over time. 

 

Now, for those of you that don’t know what Fashion’s Night Out is…you NEED to know! And, for those of you, in Tulsa, there is a Fashion’s Night Out Tulsa too. It all happens on September 6th, 2012. And, when I say, it ‘all happens’, I mean it is happening all over the world on the same day/night! It’s a global initiative started by American Vogue, Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to create a fun and electric night of fashion and shopping to support the local community.
