Fantasies of Bite Beauty’s Lip Lab

We were on the way to have dinner in Manhattan with my husband’s old college buddy and his family this past Friday.  Since we arrived earlier that afternoon to expressly browse through some shops, like McNulty’s Tea & Coffee on Christopher Street, I happened to also tack on a quick walk to Bite Beauty’s Lip Lab located in Soho.  Too bad they were getting ready for a private party since I would have had an old favorite lipstick remade… a beautiful mid-tone pink I can’t seem to find a good dupe for believe it or not though I’ve looked everywhere and driven various SAs mad over it in the process.  I will have to schedule an appointment one of these days.  I heard that they do an amazing job so I can hardly wait ;)!

Hawaii On My Mind

I haven’t thought about Cinnamon Girl Boutique in years. The first time I shopped at Cinnamon Girl was in 2001, Oahu, Hawaii. I instantly fell in love with their floral island dresses with velvet trims and spaghetti straps. Unfortunately, I ended up giving them away to family because I couldn’t fit size 0 any longer. I wish I had the foresight to buy in medium. Oh well, that’s life. But I did keep their satin floral flip flops which I usually take on vacation with me. I’m so glad that adult shoe size doesn’t change. The pic below is of sandals similar to mine except for the color of the satin flowers (mine are in shades of mulberry/berries). I’ve included a link above to their site though it’s currently under construction.

Another thing I was nuts about was Crazy Shirts and their Sharka logo. Crazy Shirts shops are spread throughout the Hawaiian Islands and I believe they are also a popular West Coast brand (California).
