Ah, the '90s were a simpler time. It is very unlikely that you didn't play your Nirvana cassette tape single "Smells like Teen Spirit" while you rubbed on your "Pink Crush" Lady Speed Stick , knowing it was you and Kurt against the world. You can still buy this stuff.
I'm just wondering if it's strong enough for a sweaty something woman asking for a friend. If you're currently weeping for your lost plastic charm bracelet that marked you as a good little trend-follower in your elementary school years, you can dry those tears. A few years back, Nylon published an editorial lauding this style, and a '90s-inspired replica made by the Organic Peroxide brand. This post-new millennium copy is no longer available in stores, but never fear! You can get the real thing ' now-vintage '90s plastic charms — on eBay.
So yeah, you're basically buying your stuff back. Taking your allowance or your chore money to Claire's on the weekend was kind of like the precursor to spending your whole paycheck at Sephora , amiright? And if you weren't lucky enough to have your ears pierced — or even if you just had the classic two holes, and wanted to do it up like a cool hippie girl with multiple earnings per ear — then that meant splurging on a constant influx of stick-on, 3D, gem earrings.
For special occasions, putting these babies on your temples to highlight your eyes was a never-fail move.

If you are there make sure you stop in here. The store is full of fun gifty items and specialty things made in Colorado. The lady with whom I spoke when I was there was incredibly knowledgable of the inventory probably the owner.
I love this shop. I found some of the nicest smelling soaps I have found here too. Marlene is wonderful, and has great neighborhood spirit. No doubt you will find something you love, too. I adore the handcrafted jewelry, especially by the woman who uses stones and then little dragonflies and things on top for her necklaces—I cannot remember her name. The prices are reasonable and I love that everything except the things hanging from the ceiling are made in Colorado from local artisans.
I bought dozens of super cool sushi plates of all sizes, dual wasabi, ginger bowls and chop sticks for our annual Christmas Eve party. I used some of the plates as candle holders around my bath tub—divine.
I adore this store. Unique gifts and specialty items.

I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed it. View 1 comment. Jun 09, Betsy rated it really liked it. A great start to a new series! The only thing that prevented a higher rating was the number of characters introduced. It was hard to keep track of who was whom and I assume Sarah's grandmother will be back for the next book to further complicate things!
Cheers to the other reviewers who pointed out Ryan's Magical Cats series; they will be added to my "to read" list!

Elvis was sitting in the middle of my desk when I opened the door to my office. Sarah Grayson has moved to North Harbor, Maine to open a second hand store. She had spent her summers there with her grandmother and it was a good place for her to start a new life. Soon after moving to town she acquired a scarred travel worn cat that she named Elvis.
Sarah becomes a sleuth when her grandmother's friend Maddie is accused of murder. Maddie's friends join the investigation and the adventure begins. It is quite obvious that Ms. Ryan has spent a great deal of time around cats. She understands their personalities and is spot on with their mannerisms. This is the first book in the series and it starts out with a bang. I'm so happy that I found another series by this author to love.
Elvis shines as a character. He isn't magical but he certainly is intuitive and smart. I love the interaction that he has with Sarah and her motley crew of detectives. Maddie's friends are a varied lot and true friendship is evident in their faith that Maddie was not a killer.
I am particularly fond of Mr. His introduction mad me laugh out loud. Sarah's high school crush is back in town working as an investigator for the medical examiner. Nick wants Sarah and her crew to stay out of the way so that he and the police can do their jobs. Like that is going to happen! The store employees, Mac and Avery, are well rounded characters that add to the storyline.
It is great to see people from teens to senior citizens working together for a common good. The mystery has some twists and turns that keep your interest. I look forward to the next book. Oct 02, Vintagebooklvr rated it liked it Shelves: mystery.
