Shopgirl: Morris Museum to celebrate 25th year

We are so fortunate to have the Morris Museum of Art here in Augusta and for 25 years now, the museum has brought art, specifically that by Southern artists, to our lovely town.

 

To celebrate the Morris’ 25th birthday, the museum will be hosting a free birthday bash from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 23, complete with docents in costume, art projects, birthday cake, party favors, and an all-day symposium with artists, historians, and collectors.

This event is designed for the entire family and art aficionados alike, so bring anyone and everyone. The museum will also be exhibiting recent acquisitions and restorations to the permanent collection.

WHAT’S NEW. The iPhone 8 is about to drop and one London-based store wants to take your iPhone game to the next level.

Goldgenie will take your shiny new iPhone and make it even shinier with a plating of 24K gold, rose gold, platinum, or for the truly statement-seeking: diamond-encrusted gold.

And if you don’t think plating is good enough for you, they’ll take the casing off and replace it with solid 18k gold. They are taking orders in advance, so you don’t even have to wait to save your place until you have the iPhone 8.

Check all these options out at Goldgenie.com.

WHAT’S TRENDY. It’s hard to beat a good, nude nail polish for a look that is flattering, season-flexible and won’t break the bank. Especially this time of year, when the weather can’t make up its mind, a neutral nail goes with literally everything. As a bonus, a well-matched nude elongates fingers, and makes your hands look sophisticated and elegant.

Experts suggest when you’re searching for the perfect shade, hold it up to the back of your hand for the perfect match. A good medium shade you should be able to find anywhere is OPI Tickle My France-y. And if you’re more of a fair complexion, check out Jin Soon’s Nostalgia.

Olive skin tones should look for something like Essie’s At The Barre and deeper skin tones should go with an espresso shade, something like OPI Linger Over Coffee.
