Just fell in love with this quote:

-Rev Run



Shopping could not be simpler on this website. The site offers the latest in clothing, accessories, shoes, and even make-up. I ordered from the site a few months back and received my order quite quickly. I have recently placed and order with them today, in fact, this morning, and my item has already been sent. With my first shopping experience everything that I ordered was extremely reasonably priced. I even managed to get a few pairs of gladiators shoes for about $5…..five dollars…Can you believe that? AMI has the best clearance selection of items that I have ever seen. Shoes marked as low $4 if you catch it before it’s gone. Don’t let the prices fool you, the lower prices, does not mean the have fudged on the quality of the goods. Everything is top quality. My order totaled over $50, so I was able to swipe their free shipping code (AMISHIPPED) and my package was shipped UPS Ground. Another fun shopping tip: If you sign up for the email newsletter, you will receive great promotional deals straight to your inbox. Don’t have and email, check back on the site frequently for special codes listed right on the home page. Happy Shopping!!!
**In the picture to the right (I have the polka dot tank on): I am wearing a pair or grey suede peep toes pumps, strap detail around the ankle, and extremely comfortable shoes were one of the luck clearance finds on amiclubwear.com***

Wyndham Cozumel Resort and Spa

The Wyndham Cozumel Resort & Spa was a beautiful resort from the moment we arrived the open aired lobby decorated in modern Mexican art and the friendly smiles of the staff were extremely welcoming. We stayed in the Sabor section of the resort however during the leisure part of the day such as the beach, pool, and restaurants it wasn't just Sabor members only which was fine with us (me and my boyfriend). Our Private Bar Tender at the Sabor Pool Bar was not only fun and entertaining, I believe he was a friend to our group, his name was Rigo. The all inclusive package included mid grade liquor and above. Our shot glasses runnith over with Patron and Captain Morgan’s. What a nice surprise. Our bartender certainly did a great job at making the guest feel welcomed. Adriana at the personal concierge desk was outstanding, and she was always willing to help us with our safe and towels when needed. The most amazing part was no matter how many hours the staff worked, it seemed like they were happy to be there. Their infectious spirits and the overwhelming sense of home that the brought me and my boyfriend will be forever engraved in our minds. The restaurants were a delight, the food was fabulous and the service was superb. I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about the resort, except we had to leave and come home to Virginia back to reality.... The resort was a great mix of ages and groups with lots of activities such as snorkeling, diving, jet skiing, volleyball, and much more. The beaches were beautiful and the margaritas were always flowing! Can't wait to go back and see all of my great new friends I made in Cozumel.

New Kanye West Louis Vuitton's

Kanye West had a sneaker-endorsement deal with Nike, but now he's got a new line of sneaks for Louis Vuitton, selling for $900 US and up.
Louis Vuitton Don's, Don’s, named after Kanye West’s right-hand man, is the rapper’s take on the classic lace-up sneaker. In addition to the padded heel flap, it features a tongue specifically constructed to stand straight up, creating a hip urban look. Previewed in eye-popping red calfskin at Louis Vuitton’s Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 fashion show in January, it caused a sensation on the runway, and proved − as Kanye West intended − that it looked as good with formal wear as with dressed-down jeans
Louis Vuitton Jaspers. Jaspers is Kanye West’s signature hi-top sneaker, which comes with laces and padded Velcro straps in black suede or off-white calfskin with suede and patent leather trim. In addition, a flamboyant leather patchwork version sports suede tassels with gold-finish accessories and a fluorescent pink outsole inspired by Japanese pop art.
Louis Vuitton Mr Hudson, The same tassels and fluorescent outsole also feature on the leather patchwork version of the third style, Mr Hudson, which gives the iconic boat shoe an edgy street-style update. Named after an artist who features on Kanye West’s latest album, 808s & Heartbreak, Mr Hudson is also available in bright white calfskin with patent trim.
