Lauren Moffatt Spring 2012 Collection

I’m totally feeling this spring collection from Lauren Moffatt. The looks are clean, with nautical-inspired designs & geometric patterns. Her swimwear looks are cute, especially when paired with a tunic or skirt, make a perfect combo when hitting the beach. Scanning thru her Lookbook really makes me wish it was spring already! The images are just some of my favorite outfits, but you can see more by clicking on Lauren Moffatt’s link below.

All That Glitters Friday: Statement Necklaces

(Image: via Stella & Dot)

These over-the-top necklaces can be seen making its mark in runway looks and street style. Since Mardi Gras was celebrated this week on Fat Tuesday, the statement necklaces are reminiscent of the bundles of colorful beads which people are rewarded for heavy drinking & boob-flashing in the streets of New Orleans. You then grab as many bead necklaces tossed from the carnival floats. I just love the variety of looks the statement necklaces has making this trend easy to pull off with such looks as: the bib, collared, layers, vintage, & geometric necklace style. Have a great weekend my awesome readers!

How To Write, An Internal Memo From David Ogilvy

Iconic businessman and original “Mad Man” David Ogilvy wrote these ten tips on writing to all agency employees. It’s brutally honest on many levels, & true to its words as well.

The better you write, the higher you go in Ogilvy & Mather. People who think well, write well.

Woolly minded people write woolly memos, woolly letters and woolly speeches.

Good writing is not a natural gift. You have to learn to write well. Here are 10 hints:

1. Read the Roman-Raphaelson book on writing. Read it three times.

2. Write the way you talk. Naturally.

3. Use short words, short sentences and short paragraphs.

4. Never use jargon words like reconceptualize, demassification, attitudinally, judgmentally. They are hallmarks of a pretentious ass.

5. Never write more than two pages on any subject.

6. Check your quotations.

7. Never send a letter or a memo on the day you write it. Read it aloud the next morning — and then edit it.

8. If it is something important, get a colleague to improve it.

9. Before you send your letter or your memo, make sure it is crystal clear what you want the recipient to do.

10. If you want ACTION, don’t write. Go and tell the guy what you want.

These ear cuff are TO DIE FOR! Diane Kruger was wearing the black gold Berbère multipiercing four ring earrings for the ‘Les Adieux De La Reine’ Premiere during day one of the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival at the Berlinale Palast on February 9, 2012 in Berlin.

Hospitals Scare Me

This was just last week, but it still freaks me out thinking about it. O had to be admitted to the hospital because his doctor found out he was anemic & was afraid he might have colon cancer. With a thorough treatment & biopsy, the doctor found he’s negative on having any cancerous tumors. However, he does have ulcers in his stomach that he has to take medications for. I’m just glad his doing well now & is being the same silly boyfriend of mine that he’s always been 🙂
