Things I Love Thursday
My new Countessa Fluorescent opaque lipstick from LimeCrime, I seriously plan my outfits twice a week so I can wear this
Making adorable gifts for my friends upcoming birthdays, shush one is tomorrow and the other is celebrating on the 3rd so I'll post them later :)

Planning planning planning, I have so many cute ideas for fixing up my kitchen, planting a drawer full of seed packets around my yard, re-organizing my office space, the list goes on.

Having silly dreams of multi-colored hair and living on a cliff in Ireland in a house with a roof like a greenhouse and spiral staircases

Following my favorite authors, actors, musicians and bloggers on Twitter for daily happies and colorful twitpics

Free Gardening classes at my library

Family visiting, cleaning up and making up the spare room, makes me want to go shopping for new decorations in there...this or this or this or maybe just all of this:
I'm in a very springy green mood :)

I have never been a big fan of High Fashion, starved models, ugly outfits, silly hair. But I do have two designers I keep an eye on for inspiration. Also, find some trends that you may find intriguing but haven't a clue how to work it all together. So here are some pretties from John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. After the break I have posted a few spring 2010 trends that I am looking forward to along with a few set examples.

Sadly no longer with us

Here are a few Spring 2010 trends:
  • Gladiator style heels
  • Floral print anything- Peonies and Poppies are big
  • Clogs
  • Warrior: Ancient civilizations (ancient Rome, to Egypt, to the Celtic warrior woman) mixing with military style. Look for metal plating, leather tunics an chain-mail inspired details and military jackets
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Denim matchy matchy
  • Nude coloring
  • Waist belts
  • Feathers - only on accessories for me though

My all time favorite Makeup Site: Lime Crime Makeup will provide a charitable donation to Bideawee based on a portion of the company’s March 2010 sales volume.

Lime Crime Makeup was started by Doe Deere in 2008 because she could never find brightly colored makeup! The line has highly pigmented eye shadows and lipsticks in beautiful bright colors! Do not fear, she frequently posts tutorials on her site and all orders come with a limited edition tutorial booklet!

I have put in my order today and will post my own little tutorial here on how I prefer to apply shadow. Click to visit her store any time on the Lime Crime banner in the left column or here:
