Anklet Time

anklet

I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather was beautiful, and I spent the majority of my time pool side. I love it when all of the neighborhood kids come over and jump in my pool, it’s so cute. And, I even figured out a way to make them eat healthy snacks by serving veggies and nuts in cupcake liners. (Insert evil laugh.) It’s all about the packaging.

Anyway, when you’re in the sun all day, you start noticing things like, toe nail polish colors, spots you’ve missed while shaving and your lovely, bare ankles. Seriously, it’s time to break out the anklets. When I realized that I didn’t own a single anklet, I started researching and found this great DIY site http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-anklet/ .

I hope you’re all inspired to pull out your anklets, to create your own, or to purchase a new one this season. I’m going to see some of my jewelry vendors this week, so I promise to keep my eyes peeled for some cool anklets for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Until then, stay stylish, stay creative and stay happy!

Emerald City

When Pantone speaks, everyone listens! Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color. From designers to manufacturers to retailers to customers, Pantone is the one everyone looks to for color trends. And with that being said, the new color for 2013 is “EMERALD” aka #17-5641.

“2013 is all about a vivid, verdant shade of green that enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Although there are many other exciting hues in the color spectrum this season like African Violet, Monaco Blue and Lemon Zest, the newly crowned green is said to focus our energies on growth renewal and prosperity.

I could definitely use a huge dose of renewal and prosperity. Therefore, I will be searching for items in this color not only for myself, but for my customers at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique as well.

Go green!

Turquoise Toes

ImageImageImage

Heidi (AKA Retro Redhead)  is our “Type A” store manager at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Everything has to be perfect and orderly (LOVE HER), so you can imagine she’s a bit obsessive when she sets her mind to something. Last summer  her signature nail polish color for the season was yellow and this year she was in search of the perfect turquoise. She was on a mission! She wanted a bluey, minty, oceany freshness for her toes. So, first a bottle of “Model Behavior” from Sally Hansen came home with her.

“I hoped she would behave and be the summer color that I wished for”, said Heidi. “I tested her on my nails since I wasn’t getting my pedi for another day or so. Off to work I went wearing my favorite, leopard, bow ring to put the color test. Hmmm…it’s blue, but more electric than ocean. Not bad, but not the perfect summer signature color.”

Another day, another search, and then home with another bottle of polish. Could “I Need A Refresh-Mint” from China Glaze be the one? There was no time to test this on her hands, so out the door to her pedicure appointment she went.

“I closed my eyes while Nancy the nail lady painted away.” Tells Heidi. “And guess what? It’s the most perfect turquoise! My toes are smiling and so am I.”

I’m so glad that “Retro Redhead” found her color for the season before she started testing paint on other things (like the dressing room walls at Roadkill). So if you want happy feet, do what Heidi did and paint your  toes turquoise!
