Happy Wednesday, Blonde Ambitioners! This week has been another crazy one at work, so needless to say, I'm ecstatic that we're thismuchcloser to the weekend.
For the first time in a few weeks, I'm actually sore following last night's workout. I went to yoga yesterday evening (back to Level 4 again following the Great Yoga Disaster of 2010, haha) and was still pretty energized after it was over. So I thought I'd take advantage of the post-yoga endorphin rush and hit the treadmill for some good ole' cardio. I have to say, there's no better feeling than the one you get following an amazing sweat session, even if it does mean my calves are killing me today : )
On an unrelated note, The Rachel Zoe Project's new season premiered last night on Bravo and I was so bummed that I missed it. As most of you know, she's a fashion role model of mine and I got hooked on her show last year. I can't wait to watch and find out about all the drama surrounding Taylor and her reason for leaving Team Rachel...drama!
Speaking of fashion related things, what do you say we take a look at some of the new fall make-up colors today?
This autumn, it's all about deep purples, rich beiges and smoky grays for nails and eyes.

Last spring, Chanel debuted their amazing gray nail polish Particuliere and beauty mavens everywhere went nuts. In May, Beyonce appeared in the Telephone music video with Lady Gaga sporting some day-glo nails in another Chanel shade, Nouvelle Vague. Once again, make-up junkies flocked to cosmetics counters across the U.S. in search of this mega-bright lacquer. And this season, they've done it again. Meet the new "it" polish for fall/winter 2010, Paradoxal.
Celebs like Rachel Bilson are already addicted to this almost indescribable eggplant hue.

Starletts like Nicole Richie are also using plum shades on their peepers. A purple-n-gray smoky palette is flattering on almost every eye color and can add depth and drama to any make-up look. My current favorite is Guerlain's Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Champs-Elysees (below).
