This should be an obvious one but in the last week I have seen two women fall prey to this faux paw. When you don't pay attention, your otherwise gorgeous outfit gets taken down a few pegs. I'm talking about the dreaded run in your nylons/tights/pantyhose - whatever you are calling them nowadays. Check your outfit in front of a full length mirror before you leave your house each day. Once you get into this habit, you will most likely notice other things out of place before you have someone like me point it out to you. Throw some clear nail polish in your purse to stop runs before they are visible - hairspray works in a pinch and carry a spare pair in case the damage is visible. It's always a good idea to check your nylons throughout the day as nasty snags can turn into a run when adjusting them after a washroom break. A quick spin in front of the washroom mirror should do it. If you find that all of this is too much work, then go without nylons. Trust me it looks better than a set of train tracks running down your leg screaming out for my one poo rating.

I don’t know about you, but this gal loves to look good AND save money. What better way to save money than to buy five pieces you can get ten outfits out of? I decided to create this look from Reitmans as they have a lot of cute, reasonably priced items. And as usual I am not being paid to endorse anyone or anything. Here’s the breakdown:

Last night Joelle watched the Lyrid meteor shower from 2am to 4:30am with Tim. She is sooooooo exhausted today! She quoted Roger Murtaugh, “I’m too old for this s**t.” She’s now taking a cue from How I Met Your Mother, and adding staying up that late to her Murtaugh List.

1. Do not wear an evening scent during the day. An evening scent is stronger and more powerful than a daytime scent which is lighter and more office appropriate. If your favourite evening scent has a light eau de toilette/cologne version, it might be appropriate for daytime.
2. Women: apply perfume before you get dressed. Hold the bottle six inches away from yourself and spray one spray on each wrist and on the neck. Alternatively you can spray one spray into the air and walk through it. Do not spray perfume onto your clothes because it will be scent overload and could possibly ruin your clothes. Men: spray cologne on your hands and apply to neck, ears, and chest. Or spray one spray directly on neck, ears, and chest. Use a maximum of three sprays.
3. Be intimate with fragrance. Fragrance is not supposed to overwhelm, it's supposed to be subtle. Marian Bendeth fragrance expert and owner of Sixth Sense has said, “People further than an inch away from you shouldn’t be able to smell your perfume. If you’re applying more than a spritz because you can’t smell it yourself anymore, it’s time to introduce your nose to something else."
If you don't comply to the above, I give you this rating:

I’m still saddened by Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon. Tim and I will continue to pray and send love to all affected by this senseless act of violence.
With spring still trying to happen for us here in the Canadian prairies, I thought I’d do a sunny Celebrity Style For Less entry as I haven’t done one in such a long time. All prices are in Canadian dollars.

Last Wednesday I discussed my five favourite products and now I will tell you of the products that I wouldn't waste money on.
I'm tired right now, so let's skip the yap and get to the crap:
