Fumbling Towards Friday...

 Somehow it's been a protracted week, folks.
So let's hear it for the deeply superficial. 

Three cheers for cheeky punctuations, particularly pillow speak

Here's to dusting off doppelganger lamps and giving them the space to shine. 
They'd hibernated, coiled in cobra cords, for quite some time.

Go, go, go Rodeo!

 Cuz there's nothing quite like the Houston Livestock Show

Let's give it up for cheap-fix drugstore finds

 And taking the goods for a test drive in the carpool line

    If birthday etiquette indicates Go-Kart, just do it, succumb and dress the part

Encourage inclusion -- celebrate the multicultural mixing of metals

 And last but not least, Nero can't help but relish a nod to my eternal footwear fetish.

Is that the new Pat McGrath for CG lipstick? What's your assessment?

Love the lamps there. I wish I was cool enough to wear those spiky pumps, but I have to admit I like your velcro tennies better. Where did you snag?

Hi there Raina,

Why yes, indeed it is the new Pat McGrath Runway collection for Cover Girl.
I walked in looking for one shade and walked out with a trio of pinks.
So far Spellbound (shown above) and Siren are the ones I like best.
As for my assessment of the product, it's richer than the standard drug store lipstick, has a pleasant scent/taste and leaves a helluva stain.
Overall, a good buy for chump change.
Cheers, Alcira

Greetings Candita,

Ah yes, surely you may recall those lamps from other times.
I had stored them in my closet temporarily, worrying they'd get knocked over or broken. But hiding them away seemed to border on the criminal, so I guess in this case one must embrace the rather cluttered, Console o' Curiosities vibe.
As for the kicks, they hail from that wonderful Canadian purveyor of footwear that's meant to be worn today and chewed on by the dog tomorrow, Aldo.
Cheers, Alcira

LOVE it all! I love peeks into your home...always so fab! And a rodeo!? How fun! I haven't been to one in ages! Love your amazing arm party! And the CL' comment necessary.

I just started my own blog a couple of weeks ago. I've been following yours for some time now so it would mean a lot if you took a peek at it and, if you like what you see, follow. :)

Hello Kecia and welcome to the wonderful wilds of the Blogosphere ;)

Thanks for popping by and for the kind props.
The arm party belongs to a good friend of mine -- alas much as I chant in tongues, lie prostrate or fast and pray, my thighs will never be so lithe, nor my arms so lovely and long.
Great stack, right?
Cheers, Alcira
