I love jewelry.  On the way home, I realized that I need a cool necklace.  Something that screams frum fashionista.  I don’t do gold unless it’s white gold; I prefer silver.  Lucky for me, I found this:

DIY is a holdover from my punk-rock days.  I tend to try to do everything myself!  Most of the time I can pull it off fairly well.  Alas, I lack the time to play with my beauty products all day, so I try to find the quick and easy way to do things.

Thankfully, there are tons of new products out there now to help me with my nail maintenance!  Do these six steps so you have great looking nails without hitting the salon.  Scope out the goodies after the jump!

[tweetmeme source=”frumfashionista” only_single=false]

Shavous is closely nipping at our heels.  Since I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York Cheesecake is on the menu in my house.  As if there was an alternative…

my weekend got hectic…and this week is even worse

I ironed 12 loads of laundry on Mother’s Day.  That’s beyond sick!  So I took the opportunity to check out my closet and see what fits and what doesn’t.  I really need more button-down shirts.  The problem is that I have really long limbs and a short torso. As a result, shirts come up short on the arms.  I decided to try out Gap’s mini-floral roll-up shirt in tall.  I hope it works out better than the Old Navy camp shirt.  Those were too sheer, even with a shell underneath it.

I guess I should post about what I want in my closet eventually…

Finding a mother’s day gift won’t be hard with my budget-friendly gift guide!

Flowers are the no-fail mother’s day gift, but they can be surprisingly pricey.

Not this simple chic bouquet from FTP.com!   They’re only $20 and just a little different from the standard dozen red roses!

Of course I’m getting ready for Shabbos right now.  I tend to either stay up really late or I get up really early to prepare for Shabbos.  This week, I did a combination of the two.
