Handbag Cravings

For those of you who know me, you know I enjoy a nice handbag. I have always had an attraction for a nice quality handbag. Burberry, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Coach.. should I go on?

The truth is, you don't need a new handbag every month or even every season (need? NO want? ALWAYS!). Choose handbags that will be a staple in your wardrobe. They're worth the investment only if you continue to use them. The tricky part is picking a handbag you could use all the time. Stick with solids and neutrals that can go with any outfit, and be switched within the different seasons.

Current Favorite Bag
She's casual, but professional. I love her!
I've been switching her back and forth with this
Michael Kors bag since the Fall.

Michael Kors (different color here)

Here's an inexpensive alternative to the Tory.
It even has fun studs on it.

On my wish list. . . 

I'm still looking for the perfect neutral toned bag that can go with everything. 
This Coach bag is sexy & professional. Gotta love it.

What's your favorite handbag and who is your favorite handbag designer?

Happy Reading!

Favorite 'Go To' Make-up Products

I generally wear make-up everyday. Depending on the day, or what I have to do, it varies on exactly what I wear and how much I wear of it.

A little foundation and some eyeshadow goes a long way, especially if you're just going to class or to work. I never leave the house without a quick application of my favorite 'Go To' products.

 Maybelline New York Volume Express The Colossal
(For a more dramatic look, layer this mascara, and it'll look like you have fake lashes!)

bareMinerals Primer
 bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation
(I use N20, it works great transitioning from sun kissed skin in the summer to a more pale tone in the winter)
 NARS Blush : Outlaw

Although some of these beauty brands run on the more expensive end, they are well worth the extra money considering what great products they are. You won't regret having these in your make-up bag!

Happy Wednesday!



So here I am...

Today I made a decision, one that I've been contemplating for a while now. I am starting a blog! I thought about the different things that I could blog about; art, history, school, wedding planning, my adorable dog Daisy, my future husband, decorating my apartment, my friends, fashion, beauty, hair, cooking, books I'm reading, etc! But then I thought Why not blog about all of it? I have so many fun things going on in my life right now that I think it'd be amazing to implement all of them into my blog, and maybe you don't relate to one thing but can totally relate to another?

So here I am. . .

My first blog. Welcome!
