OK, so Pan Am is now a defunct airline. And you might travel in coach more than first class … But that doesn’t mean the luxury the “Pan Am” show calls to mind is off limits to you when you travel.

If you would have told us a few years ago that we’d want to wear sequins all over one day, we would have laughed hysterically. But now we’re adding sequins to the list of things we said we would never wear yet can’t get enough of. Sequins are a dazzling way to take part in the metallic trend and are totally appropriate for day when the other clothes you’re wearing are simple. For instance, if you’ve decided on a pair of sequin pants, then add a simple, white button-down blouse to contrast the glitz. Ditto goes for a sequin skirt or shorts. Sequin jackets look amazing with distressed jeans for day, but wearing black crop pants at night is a playful take on a tuxedo. Sequin dresses are best left for nights out and sequin T-shirts will become a wardrobe staple.

They’re only (ha!) $200 each, or $900 for the whole set. A small price to pay for the ability to claw someone’s eyes out, wouldn’t you say? [Etsy]
OK, so this has been the year of skin woes for me. First, I accidentally burnt my lips using two common beauty products — teeth whitener and Blistex. After a few weeks, my lips healed for a short time, and then began to peel again. Few products offered any long-term therapeutic relief, and after speaking to my dermatologist, we realized that I had eczema around my lips.
You’re probably wondering, What does this have to do with a Spa Sonic Skin Care System Face & Body Polisher? Allow me to explain.
