Welcome Spring with four new Limited Edition Rose Powder Blushes from Milani. These highly pigmented blushes are finely milled, silky soft, and have a matte finish.

I tried the 06 Lady Rouge {top right} which is a perfect shade for me and you can't beat the price at $7.99. Available in four bright and beautiful shades in Walgreens during March and online at

You'll certainly feel chic and beautiful after using the Land of Milk n Honey Body Wash by ME! Bath...and your skin will smell wonderful too!

Miucha sandals made in Brazil
Bring on Spring, bring on the bling! These chic leather sandals from Miucha are adorned with sparkling stones. I wish you could see them in person because the image doesn't come close to showing their beauty and sparkle. Ice crystals in different sizes and shapes dance in the light and dress up any outfit. Made in Brazil, they are item #1301 and are well worth the $54 price tag at

Online fashion retailer W Concept has brought abstract street artist, Paul Richard's, paintings to the fashion world.
