Marilyn Meets Johnny

The prettiest bras on the planet…

Awhile ago I got into touch with the designer of Marilyn Meets Johnny. Sophie, who is the designer, started making bras 2 years ago after going to a Pussy Cat Dolls concert. Before she had a successful business, she was making these gorgeous bras for the girls at her work. Sophie decided that she was going to put one on Ebay and it sold right away. Within 2 months, she had a full order book and she quit her full time job to make bras full time and ship them to ladies all over the world. Sophie started this business with only $40. Her, and the two other ladies she works with, live in Liverpool, UK.  Real Swarovski crystals or DMC mirror glass pieces are used and the bras covered in sequins are hand sewn.

These bras are amazing and one of a kind. Sophie has had offers to have everything made in China but she has declined because she wants her customers to be able to choose their own design and to keep a reasonable price tag on items. The sizes she has for bras are 30A – 42G.  She can bling anything!!

Bras are not the only things that are are blinged out by Marilyn Meets Johnny. They have a full selection of items including gloves, masks, high waist spanks, briefs, thongs, g-strings, heels, and the list goes on.

When Marilyn Meets Johnny approached me, to say I was excited to be on board is a complete understatement. I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t want a gorgeous sparkling bra?

I was instantly drawn to the Rhianna Carnival Bra collection. I got the Rhianna crystal bralet. From the name, you can tell this collection is inspired by Rhianna herself!!

Like I said, the most gorgeous bras on the planet! No matter where you are, one can be shipped to you. Marilyn Meets Johnny ships worldwide.

I really like these bras because they can be fashioned in so many different ways. You can wear it alone for some extreme fun or style it like I have with high waisted shorts and a button up sleeveless shirt over it. Spring and the dead heat of summer cannot come fast enough. I am just waiting to show this bra off and not freeze.

A gorgeous purse and eye catching jewelry always make me smile…

I won a giveaway not that long ago that was hosted by Mo from Belle of the Bean. She has some amazing style and this giveaway was a big win for me!!! I have been on the hunt for new, affordable jewelry but I haven’t found anything that spoke to me. When Mo announced this giveaway, I had to enter because every single item was screaming that it needed to be in my life!!

Above you see: a purse from Arden B., a necklace and bracelet set from Arden B., necklace and earrings from Adorned Boutique, and a necklace that says “DREAM” from BCBGenteration.

Thank you so much Mo!! I love each of the pieces!!

Treasures

I love going to a shop and finding things that speak to me…

I went to my favorite thrift shop and picked up some new treasures. I have found that thrift shops that are like boutiques have much better finds.

World Market Bag

Patina is a local thrift shop that always has the most unique items. The owner of the shop had this bag on her sorting rack. I knew it wasn’t out yet but I had to check it out because it was so unique and vibrant…needless to say I brought it home with me.  My birthday is right around the corner so this bag is going to be incorporated into my birthday outfit!!

statement makeup

I also picked up this statement necklace. I love the gold and the the sprinkles of paint on the circle piece. I purchased this to go with a dress I also bought that is straight from the 90’s. There is nothing like finding an amazing statement piece at an affordable price.

Remember, thrift shops can be your best friend. I am on a budget and I want to get the most bang for my buck and thrift shops provide me with that.  Plus, I really like vintage pieces and unique things and thrift shops, like Patina, feed my craving.

Do you go thrift shopping? What have you found that you love?

The Sun and A Pop Of Color

Just because the weather may suck during winter doesn’t mean your color selection has to as well…

pop of color

I know it’s so cliche to talk about the weather but the weather here has been absolutely beautiful! I enjoy the sun while it is out  and so does my little dog Cairo.

Even if the sun wasn’t out, I would still wear my bright yellow shirt and bright blue scarf. I think it’s ridiculous that when the weather changes people stop wearing bright and cheery colors. I think everyday deserves a little pop of color!

Do you switch the colors in your wardrobe from season to season?

Vegemite to Lip Lacquer

Rosie and I decided to do another swap…

New Year Swap Box With Rosie

Look at all this goodness!!!

As I said, Rosie and I decided to keep swapping items every so often and the picture above are items from our most recent swap. We did one during the summer that you can find HERE. Please go pay Rosie a visit at her awesome blog, A Red Lip and A Nude Shoe.

Needless to say I was BEYOND EXCITED when I saw the package from Rosie sitting in my mailbox.

She sent me…

Vegemite – – Awhile ago, Rosie and I started talking about Vegemite. She showed me this video on YouTube of people eating spoonfuls of it and then basically puking afterwards. Me, being the adventurer that I am, asked Rosie to send me some. Not so I could do a Vegemite challenge because that is just stupid. I love to try new things and Rosie assures me it is delicious.

Chi Chi Brights palette – – I have heard nothing but good things about Chi Chi cosmetics and they are an Australian based cosmetics company which means I can’t get them at stores here. Rosie was kind enough to send me a palette and the colors are highly pigmented and gorgeous!! Yes, expect a review!

Lucas PaPaw Ointment – – I l-o-v-e this stuff and so does my skin especially during the winter!! My skin gets super dry during the winter time and this stuff has helped it not become cracked.

Napoleon Lip Lacquer – – Now, I love me some lip gloss and eyeshadow. I can’t wait to try this stuff out! The consistency of it reminds me of OCC lip tar.

Gorgeous Cosmetics Kohl Eyeliner – – Who doesn’t need eyeliner? Eyeliner was the first makeup item I ever bought. I can remember when Avril Lavigne came out and she had her eyes all smokey and I told myself I needed my eyes to look like that. At the time, I seriously thought I looked great…but pictures from back then say otherwise. No worries, I have since then perfected my smokey eye look!!

Jane Iredale Mascara – – This mascara is a mineral mascara and I can’t wait to try it. It is going to go in my ESK kit that Rosie gave me the idea for creating and carrying around. Not sure what an ESK kit is, read about it on Rosie’s blog HERE.

People for Plants Organic Lip Balm – – Everyone needs a good lip balm and I have found that the organic ones provide the best moisture to my lips. I am excited to try this one out when my current one runs out!!

Thank you so much Rosie for all the goodies!! I hope that you enjoy the items I have sent you as much as I have enjoyed yours xo

Any movie recommendations?
