There is something soft and romantic about it without looking childish.  It reminds me of Marie Antoinette, dreamy wedding cakes, and fancy tea parties.  Here is my pink and gold inspiration that brought me to purchase FierceMagenta's lip gloss in Romance:

Shopping For Free: I Love Polyvore!

Hi there!

Oh my heck have I been a polyvoring fool.  I won't blather on about it- but here is the result of only 2 days of wasting a few hours on Polyvore.  It's like shopping but for free- love that it links to where you can buy the items you find.  I'm hooked.
