Friday, July 29, 2011


This time last week I was in Sunny California with my loves (seen above) having the time of my life *le sigh*. I'm back in the midst of this heat wave happening on the east coast and I've got a few things on the schedule this weekend! Feels good to be home because that's where the HEART is for sure. Without further delay, Have a wonderful Friday and live it up this weekend...I KNOW I WILL! <3

Feeling BLUE: Harper's Bazaar Smurfette Style!

I'm super excited to see The Smurfs movie, I may have to take one of my niece or nephews so I don't look like a creep being one of the only adults but I have to see it! LOL! Anyway I found it super cute that one of my Fashion Bibles also known as Harper's Bazaar appreciates them as well. Smurfette, star of The Smurfs movie got her own spotlight in the pages of August 2011, Harper's Bazaar Magazine. Smurfette gets an official #StyleandGrace STAMP from us!

MAC ALERT: MAC Seasonally Supreme Collection

"Tokyo scenesters, Seoul trendies, Shanghai’s brand-conscious sophisto-chicks, all are contributing to make Asia a haute-pot that stylishly sizzles. To add to the frenzy: M·A·C’s new collection Sheen Supreme, a sweet and spicy palette of twelve cream-or-frost-finished shades that speaks to the region’s colour preferences in the fusion of Lipglass’ high-shine finish with the saturated colour of a Lipstick. Colour-customized, culturally tuned."
