My friends inspire me in so many different ways. Each woman is so unique; in fact, they’re so different, I sometimes can’t believe they are ever in the same room together. Each lady possesses specific qualities that make her very special to me. This post is dedicated to my friends; even though we are scattered in different cities, I always keep them close to my heart. Here is what my girls are obsessed with lately.
Dark Green Nailpolish
She thought she’d try a lighter green shade since it’s finally spring. “It looked like algae was growing on my nails.” She’s sticking with dark green, which is tres chic for spring 2010.
This Jersey City girl lives near the PATH train; in a hop, skip & a jump across the river, she’s in NYC, usually on the Lower East Side, where she has a new hangout. She says Whiskey Ward is “dingier, but always has some good music on.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race
This girl is obsessed with this show. Seriously. She won’t stop talking about it. I wake up in the morning to texts from her about it. “It’s the most amazing fabulous show!,” she says.
Vibram Five Fingers
I can’t believe I’m blogging about such ugly shoes! But Danielle’s excused for wanting these, cause she’s a runner. She wants to get a pair of these to help her with her form while running. Enthusiasts of barefoot running claim the foot moves more naturally when unencumbered by shoes. These slip on to mimic the natural motion of the feet, and provide a light rubber sole to protect Danielle from dangers that may be lying in the Baltimore streets. (But maybe she needs to buy a pair of fancy heels to counteract this purchase??)
Another thing Danielle is psyched about: having a washing machine that works again. “The joys of home ownership,” she says.
MAC eyeshadow in Club
My oldest friend turned me onto this shimmery, prismatic shadow. It catches light in certain ways that make it look green, brown and irridescent violet. “It looks different depending on what color you wear,” Jen says.
Sweet Tea Vodka & Lemonade
“It’s so refresing and delicious, and it doesn’t even taste like alcohol!,” Steph gushes. To make this easy, summery drink for yourself, mix one part sweet tea vodka (Firefly is a great choice) with one part lemonade. Add fresh lemon slices to garnish. Stir. Sip. Love.
Bedhead Queen for a Day Thickening Spray
Who needs a professional hairstylist with this girl’s arsenal of hair products? She uses this to plump up her locks and avoid flat hair. “Smells like grapefruit & really makes my hair voluminous!”
