IN THE PINK

It's hard not to focus on just staying warm and dry these days, but Target is rolling out their spring fashions and, girls, pink is back! Pick up one of these cute items -- after all, if Punxsutawney Phil is correct, then warmer temps are right around the corner.

Their Mossimo Floral Printed Scarf is lightweight, a lovely floral pink and costs only $12.99.

Or free your feet from their black leather prison and wiggle your toes into the pink Converse One Star Women's Lace-Up Oxfords, which go for $29.99.

Maybe if we all collectively wear these great pink items, we can will spring to come sooner!

WARM IT UP

Heat things up Beyonce style with a spritz of her new perfume -- Beyonce Heat Rush. It is a delightfully feminine scent that comes in a pretty tangerine-and-gold bottle -- the combination of colors and smells will transport you somewhere tropical and sunny.

The scent is a cross between flowery and fruity. According to the press release, it is built with scents from Yellow Tiger Orchids, Mango Blossoms and Orange Hibiscus.

The 1.7-ounce bottle will run you $49, and there's also a shimmering body cream that is $24 for 6.7 ounces. Find it in department stores. There's a store locator at www.beyonceparfums.com.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"... Musically they were just fantastic. And since then, I have gotten every album that they've made. It's the only band whose albums I buy. I'm not into music -- the only music I like is musical theater, but I have every Ween album."

-- "Social Network" actor Jesse Eisenberg on his favorite band, Ween, in Spin magazine.
