Interesting article on plastic surgery & how it relates to fashion today…Perk & Work – http://www.style.com/vogue/feature/2009/03/perk-work
(Linking isn’t working on my blog for some reason lately…uggh)

Fashion designers now design for augmented bodies. Great! More pressure to go under the knife….sigh. Will there ever come a time again that celebrates a real woman’s beauty without her feeling that she has to have the smallest waistline, the largest breasts and the tightest, little bodies in order to be considered pretty? I find it disturbing that the trend is to have SURGERY in order to feel good about oneself. Let’s celebrate ourselves as we are…real, natural, and beautiful regardless of what the media dictates to us!

M·A·C Backstage Trend Update: Tendertone. “Tender tones, leached out shades, ice cream scoops of colour. All applied playfully – as if this were your first makeup ever. What’s key, the colour contrasts and how fresh they appear – as a sheer wash, a fabulous cloud of fairy dust…”
I could see this makeup look with crimped hair…a fun, fantasy sort of look!

    Looking for something new to do in Vegas for fun? Maybe you should try ‘Dinner in the Sky‘ (fine dining 160-180 feet in the air). It was here for a brief time over New Year’s and now it’s back! My son, Austin worked as a waiter aboard Dinner in the Sky when it was here the last time and is working it again. That’s Austin wearing a bow-tie in the pics! I seriously do not know where he gets his bravery from….certainly not from me!
