My new #SelfieRing from Glam Screen.

Relax While Taking A Selfie

Like other bloggers, I belong to many social networks including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram all of which encourage users to share photos in their updates including "selfies" ("a self-portrait taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone" ~ Wiki).

Real Techniques Miracle Sponge

The sizes range from 14 to 26 (some tops go to 28). Here are a few of my favorite mixed and matched styles: Paisley Halter … [Read More...]

Plus size chiffon tops from Igigi are great layering pieces for summer.
