PIPM: Pretty in Pink Megan: December 2011


We just recently made some last minute NYE plans. This is the first year in a while that we've actually had NYE plans. I am normally a proponent of staying in and not partaking in the hype and fixed menu prices, but this year I am breaking out of my shell.

In true fashion, I looked last minute for a sequin dress and decided to go with Rent The Runway. Because really, how many times will you re-wear a sequin dress? Probably not many times. I will be wearing this Haute Hippie Sequin Sheath.

However, if you are still looking for a NYE outfit, here are some good options:

And if you'd rather not participate in the "omg it's NYE let's wear sequins" thing, try out some festive nails! I got OPI's Bling Dynasty with a layer of gold sparkles on top.
What are your plans this year?

Vlog + OOTN

Tonight I wore a f21 Poncho (or as Rob calls it, my "mexican drug lord cape") with legging pants and DvF boots and a Louis Vuitton Epi Speedy.

I did a quick little vlog for you all on how I roll my hair since so many of you asked in the comments from last week's post. Enjoy!

I had to break the video up in two parts.

Bridal Jewelry from American Bridal!

I recently came across a great site for wedding favors and accessories called American Bridal. What I loved most on their site were their hair accessories and jewelry selection. They have tons of beautiful bridal jewelry for women to wear on their wedding day...and they have styles that will go with any type of dress or wedding theme. All of you newly engaged gals should check out these feather hair accessories, beautiful pearl jewelry sets, and much more on American Bridal's website!

And this pearl jewelry set:

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to you all from my house to yours. Here is our card this year that was designed by the talented M.Ellen Designs.

Christmas Eve Eve Eve

Last night I wore this fur vest circa 2002 that I found in my parent's garage. I am pretty sure it's from high school.

I am also working on my Duchess hair. I need to learn how to make the curls more tight on the bottom like this:
That's all I've got today!

Dear Santa

Clockwise: Navy Vintage Chanel Purse, Chanel No. 5, Sisley Paris Supremya, Starbucks Gift Card, Keurig, David Yurman Bracelet

Here are some things I wouldn't be devastated to get on Christmas morning.

I am having a vintage Chanel moment right now. I love the look of navy and gold together as well as the tassel.

I recently have a renewed love for Chanel's most popular fragrance.

I love the free sample of Sisley Supremya that I received a couple of months ago.

Starbucks gift cards are self-explanatory.

Our Tassimo is about to bite the dust and the options for K cups far exceed the ones available for the Tassimo.

David Yurman is self-explanatory as well.

What's on your list?

Monday Thoughts ...

This was my "trugging" outfit this weekend. I wore orange J Brand jeggings, a Theory sweater and my trusty ole Uggs.
So, I have a bone to pick with you all. I have a good amount of "members" via the Google Friend Connect tool on the right hand side of this blog, but I have way less than half of that number on the PIPM FB page. Google is going to do away with the "friend connect" widget in March, so please go over and "like" the PIPM facebook page. I like to keep track of you all and love to be able to communication via FB, so get your butts over there and like it now! Okay?! No pressure.
I tried these two Kerastase products this weekend and LOVED them! I am also using the elixir leave in treatment. My hair felt like silk!
Here are the ones that I am using:

The Post

In which I wear a huge infinity scarf that doubles as a neck brace! I was inspired by the photos I posted last week of chunky infinity scarves. I ordered this blue one from Etsy. I am wearing it with Rag & Bone jeans and J.Crew Leopard pumps.
Why do tripod photos look so awkward? I just can't get the height to be right or something. I'm still working on it.

Thursday Randomness

Are you all getting sick of blog sale stuff yet? I listed some more items here. It's good stuff!

I got OPI's "Let Me Entertain You" on my gel nails. I love how festive it is!
I cannot believe Christmas is next week. Christmas snuck up so fast this year, more than ever. I am still not done shopping for Christmas presents. Oh well. Procrastination station right here!

Accuweather dot com released their Christmas snow forecast and looks like we will not be getting any snow. Boooooo.
I love snow. We don't get enough of it here in Memphis. Just once I'd love for it to look like this here:
I'm not talking some light little dusting. I want a full out snow storm.

Campus Book Rentals

Note: This is a sponsored post. I was compensated with chocolate covered strawberries in exchange for this post. For real. Nom.

So how many of you spend too much money on textbooks for college? I know when I was in college I could kiss around 500-600 dollars goodbye per semester!

Well, friends, there is a little site called Campus Book Rentals that allows you to rent your textbooks with some awesome perks!

Some perks are:

save 40-90% off of bookstore prices

free shipping both ways

can highlight in the textbooks

flexible renting periods

they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

What is Operation Smile?

We're ecstatic to announce our 2011 Making a Difference Program. We have officially teamed up with Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. The long term Improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope To beat that number, but it's a significant commitment.

So for EVERY book rented starting now, we will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with our sights set on meeting and exceeding our goal of 1,000 lives changed. So add that extra book to your cart, and consider this goal as you go back to school this year. Thank you for your support.

How does it work?:

So get out there and rent your text books, y'all!

Girls Say

I mean, really. How many of these things do you say? I am guilty of nearly all of them, especially the stuff about computers.

Hello There

I got a new fragrance last week. I decided on Bond. 9 Saks Fifth Avenue. I have wanted to try Bond fragrances, but just couldn't decide on a scent. What Bond fragrance do you wear?
Speaking of beauty products, did you all use the Sephora 20 dollar off coupon that ended yesterday? I got a new mascara and another smoky eye stick. I got a sample of the LORAC mascara.
I have been using an old dried up tube of Chanel's Imitable Intense. I am just not feeling it anymore.
While it does separate and lengthen, it doesn't volumize very well as seen above.

Are you all going to watch the NBC "Inside The Royal Marriage" special tonight? I definitely will be watching!
My favorite Slatkin candle scent right now is the Fresh Balsam. I am going to have to buy another one in a week's time if I keep burning this one.

What's new with you?

Chill Out Playlist

So you all know I love me some weird music. One of my all-time favorite genres is chill-out/downtempo/lounge music. I listen to this when I am just needing background noise or when I am needing to get some things done. I posted my techno playlist a while back, but wanted to post this chill mix as well! Enjoy!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


Sorry there has been a lack of posting this week. I am currently out-of-town for work and have been for the past week.

Here is an OOTD from today consisting of an old Milly dress, turtleneck and dvf boots:
I ordered some Kerastase hair products after doing a little survey asking what brand people like the best. I am excited to try out the "green line" that was suggested to me for my hair type.
I just love SJP. She will always be Carrie Bradshaw to me. This outfit is so crazy, but I love it because I know it's something that CB would wear:
I have encountered quite a week with traveling. My rental car mini-van (I always request the mini-vans, a whole other story) broke down in the parking lot of an office yesterday. Thinking it was just the battery, I called Enterprise roadside assistance who sent out a AAA service vehicle. Turns out it wasn't the battery so the mini-van had to be towed and I will be getting a new rental today. I rent cars so much for work, this was bound to happen sometime. Anyone have any funny rental car stories?

Oh Hai

Happy Wednesday, friends! Here are a couple of outfits from this week.

{Theory dress, Tibi Sweater, tights, DvF boots}
{360 Cashmere shawl, DvF leggings, Hunter boots}
