    Have you seen this shoe? I'm talking about Stuart Weitzman's "Nudist" sandal, seen on every celeb's well-manicured foot these days. They have a simple elegance (er, because they're barely there) and they'll go with almost everything in your closet. I love them! If only they did not cost $398 I would have one in every color. Or even just one pair.

    But guess what -- the Nudist is already being knocked off by everyone. And this is great news for us non-celebs who spend all our shoe money on sneakers for the kids. Here are 8 version of the It-sandal of the season you can actually afford.

    My once-blond hair has been getting darker and darker, especially since I haven't had the time or the money to get it professionally highlighted. I have really thick, long hair, so not only does it take hours at the salon to get it done, but it costs hundreds of dollars too. (It doesn't help that I live in one of the most expensive cities in the whole country, either.)

    So in the interest of protecting my pocketbook and hectic schedule, I tried to lighten my hair myself.

    My first stop was the hair color section at my local Walgreens, but all the chemicals and the fear of screwing up scared me. And what happened to SunIn? I didn't see that anywhere!

    Instead I decided to try something I hadn't done since I was a teen: use lemon juice to give myself some natural highlights. How did I do it, you ask?

    I like the idea of dressing up for Valentine's Day. I find myself wearing the usual rotation of skinny jeans (or leggings) on a daily basis, so it's nice to break out of my rut for a special day -- even if we are just staying home and eating pizza after the baby goes to sleep.

    But at the same time, I don't want to break the bank on a "special occasion" dress since I'll likely only wear it once or twice a year. I want stylish and cheap. Is that so much to ask?

    Turns out, no! There are plenty of pretty red "Valentine's Day" dresses out there. Here are 5 Valentine's Day dresses for under $50. Score!

    No matter where you live or who you are, if you're a woman, chances are you're a tired womanWith so much to think about -- kids, home life, work, investments, love life -- it doesn't often feel like we get a whole lot of time to think of ourselves, or even better, to pamper our weary bones. 

    Who can blame us? Most beauty treatments are totally expensive and there's very little point shelling out lots of money to look better if we're just going to feel guilty afterwards for spending an arm and a leg. But, if you ever find yourself with an extra $25 to squander and a little bit of well-earned free time, you may want to consider one of these 10 ways to easily -- and affordably -- get yourself looking even more gorgeous.

    Nothing can ruin your morning like a frizzy head of hair. It doesn't matter what you are wearing or how perfectly you've applied your makeup if your mane is a mess. That seemed to be my constant problem -- and not just in the summer months. Whenever there is a hint of humidity in the air, my hair blows up like a bush. I have tried every smoothing product out there and I had almost given up hope. But I think I have found the best do-it-youself frizz-fixer out there and it won't break the bank. Check it out.

    With approximately one zillion beauty products available (and that's just eye shadow), sorting out what really works from what just looks good in the package can be a real hit or miss experience.

Here are 9 of my all-time favorite eye makeup beauty picks that are not only beautiful and high quality, but totally affordable.
