Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today's trend is bold lips.  This is our first beauty trend.  The Trend Spin Linkup has been up and running for almost a year now, so we are excited to start adding some new fun and different trends to try.  We already have themese lined up for the next couple months, but if you have any ideas for the future, we would love to hear them!  I just started wearing lipstick about a year ago.  I remember being so hesitant at first, but now I absolutely love it.  I am still trying to ease into darker plums, hot pinks and bright reds.  This Lancome lipstick is my newest color.  It is a pretty plum color. It is a great color to make a statement, but it's not too much.  It's a little darker than what I would normally wear to work, but it is great for a night out.  I actually wore this exact outfit last Thursday during my presentation in Fort Worth.  I wanted an outfit that would stand out but still be professional.  And when you're a little nervous about speaking in public, I highly recommend a great pair of high heels and a beautiful shade of lipstick to add a little confidence.  Now it's your turn to show us how you wear emerald green. It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it. Here are our top 2 scarf looks from last week!
