My favorite metal: Rose Gold

Hi there,

Rose gold.  Oh yes.  It's not gold or copper- it's like a pinkish gold mixed with blush.  It's all over the place and I get irritated because I love something and then suddenly, it's everywhere.  I've loved rose gold for years and it's hot right now.  Here are some of my favorites.  I'll start first with this heinous photo from 6pm.  I don't know who would pair this with a chambray lumberjack blouse and velvety payless-lookin' hooker heels, but okay...

Then for the rich girl in all of us....a beautiful metallic over $500 KitchenAid mixer.  Won't mix better for the extra price but you'll look fancy, oh yes, you will.

Add some sequins and laser cut heels and dang girl, you fine.

Why can't I have drapes that look like I pulled them out of a trunk in a circus wagon?  Who makes the rules anyway on this stuff.  Glittery sequin curtains?  Yes, ma'am.

Even though glitter polishes are murder to remove (use alum. foil with cotton balls soaked in nail polish remover like little hats for your fingers, leave for a few mins then remove the glitter like butter)...this is beautiful.  Pair this with Orly 'Rage' and you got some rose gold tips!

China Glaze, 'Glam' or you can try Essie 'A Cut Above' layered with Orly 'Rage' 
I love long, sparkly heirloom looking earrings.  I want to channel my inner countess who lives in a castle and wear these to Wal-Mart.

Or I can be delicate about it and wear these instead.

Kate Spade
Or we can throw delicacy out the window and go whole hog- roses, napkins, fountains of flowers, and gazebos all over the joint!  ROSE GOLD!

 And of course the fiasco of marketing that was supposed to be fabulous- the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette...best of the bunch.

Get your bling on with rose gold Swarovski crystals.  I'm going to glue them to my eyelids and go around signing Gwen Stefani songs.

Oh won't this look pretty in my hair or around my scrubs.  Yes, rose gold nursing outfit!

Blush/Champagne dress to wear the sash with....oh heaven.

MAC's Rose Gold pigment is too dark and bronze, but Melon is a beautiful peachy copper that is beautiful!

Or if you've got the Deluxe Shadow Box from Urban Decay, get a little Scratch on top of your peepers for some rose gold goodness.  If you put Baked in the center of your lid it's even better.

Now I know it doesn't look like rose gold.  You're thinking that mauve with gold flecks is not the right shade...but when you match this with your skin you get a rose gold flush that is gorgeous.  It's not too orange or pink.  Nars blush in Sin is worth every.stinking.2400.pennies.

MAC's lipstick in Ramblin' Rose isn't this granny plays bingo orange and gold- it's this beautiful pinky gold that looks just like rose gold on your lips.

And if you're broke from all of the above, $3.00 will get you a latte or it'll get you this beautiful baked eyeshadow from ELF.

Okie doke- I love rose gold.  That about sums it up.  Now I am waiting for rose gold nachos, hair color, and toilet paper.  Then I'll be all set.

Have a great day,
