Good Afternoon GL'AMore Babes!!
I've been wishing upon a star for Sundays the way they used to be, when I was a civilian. A bowl a cereal, my favorite pillow and throw, plenty of Mandarin oranges, and good TV. Not just any TV, I'm talking TMC or Lifetime. Saturdays were sacred for cartoons. A down side to being overseas in Bahrain is that the TV guide selection is slim to none!! I need my Sandra Dee, Judy Garland and Katherine Hepburn! Its crazy how much money I've spent on DVDs in the past 6 months.
I was in dire need of a good movie afternoon so I bought The Blind Side, Brothers and The Men Who Stare at Goats. A nice change from my usual Sex and the City, Selena, Evita and Peter Pan. I was not in the least bit disappointed. Loved every minute of them. I didn't want The Blind Side to end.
What are your favorite lazy day movies?

Yay! It's coming back around to my favorite time of year when Old Man Winter starts packing up and moving out!! Im so excited for spring and all the colorful prints, wedges and gladiator sandals, blazers, sundresses, sunglasses.... can't you tell how excited I am?? One advantage to being stationed in Bahrain is the its warm all year round. Being the fashionista I am, I try to stay as current as possible with the seasons latest and greatest. What can I say, I don't want to miss out on anything. So far these are the items on my GlamEyeAm wishlist:
This darling boyfriend blazer is $395 made by Elizabeth and James (can be found at piperlime.com)... not quite in my Seaman budget. So I searched high and low for this little number...
Topshop's Rouched Sleeve Blazer $125 (topshop.com) , now that I can handle and still eat for the rest of the month. I actually like this one better... we can do so much more with grey.
After months of lunges, sprints and crossfit I can finally put shorts on my wishlist and boy did I fall in love with this season's boyfriend fit bermuda shorts. I just hope they're in clothing regs so I can wear them on base.
I wish the Navy paid me enough to afford these Joe's Jeans Loose Rolled Shorts (piperlime.com) $150...yea, not happening right now. But good ole american eagle came to my fashion rescue when I found these:
American Eagle Boyfit Denim Bermuda shorts on sale for $29.95!!
There are so many ways of getting these looks without living paycheck to paycheck. You can find a men's blazer and get it tailored, recycle an old pair of jeans and cut them into shorts or even buy the blazer or jeans on sale and play fashion designer. You will feel so much more satisfied with your ensemble and feel even better that you saved some cash!!

Our reigning queen of the industry has warmed our hearts yet again with another selfless act. Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles, the flyest mother-daughter duo, has come together and opened a school of cosmetology for women recovering from substance abuse and diagnosed mental illness. The school is called the Beyonce Cosmetology Center. These women are looking for a fresh start and the opportunity to learn a trade in order to change for the better.
The center is in Dumbo, Brooklyn and is located at the Phoenix House. Beyonce Cosmetology School will offer a seven month cosmetology training course to the women of the Phoenix House. Not only has Beyonce invested her blood, sweat and tears into this project but also a pretty penny. She donated her salary from her role in the film Cadillac Records, where she played Etta James, to the Phoenix House even before she opened her cosmetology center.
Good ole B, working to make the world a more beautiful place...literally. What would be your TruGlam contribution to make the world a more beautiful place?
