Alright, I'm going to just come clean. Things around my home have been a little strange lately. Not as weird as that spoke word interlude about the necklace from the Titanic in the album version of B. Spears' "Oops (I Did It Again)," but weird nonetheless.

More exciting weird than anything else.

There are lots of announcements to make, but I'm not ready to share all of them.

But first, a few confessions...

I haven't watched Gossip Girl in 3 weeks. And I don't miss it. Weird, right? Although I continue to love Blair's clothes and Chuck's quips, I think they lost me when Serena uttered Barney Frank's name. In THE SHORTEST SKIRT KNOWN TO MAN.

I'm in a style/makeup rut of somewhat epic proportions. I blame it on the weather (blame it on the rain! Sorry.) and the fact that I see flip-flips everywhere even though it's still 40 degrees out, but I need a serious inspiration. Stat.

It could also be blamed on the fact that the dry cleaners is holding my tax refund's worth of clothing hostage.

I never got into Kell on Earth. I just couldn't do it. There was just so much crying over such low stakes. I mean, get an IT guy. This isn't brain surgery or even lawmaking.

Conversely, I still love Real Housewives of New York, even though I feel a little dirty after I watch it.

I'm seriously peeved that I cannot seem to a nail polish in the color I want. I'm looking for an opaque (not sheer!) cafe au lait color. Not putty, but maybe taupe? Chanel colors need not apply.

Already, enough whining. I promise to let you in on these changes soon and start getting inspired soon. Soon.

Oh, ok, fine. I'll give you one now.

My sister is engaged!!!

Yes, it's awesome. It's all the fun of planning my own wedding, but BETTER! Because I don't have to get married! So...expect some bridal beauty posts in the future!!

Re: nail color - I'm currently wearing OPI's You Don't Know Jacques and it's great. It's on the darker end of the taupe spectrum, but it's different than everything else on the shelf!

Try OPI's Over the Taupe...was just sporting it last week, it's pretty fab.

Congrats to your sister! As far as the nail polish issue, I wish I could help! I've been looking for something in a putty color too! I will let you know what I find!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Wet Clay is pretty.

My sister in law is getting married too so I agree completely. It's better than planning my own.

Looking forward to some more Cap Hill fun. Miss your posts!

Orly's Prince Charming is nice, as is Essie's Jazz (although this one is a wee bit lavender/grey).
