Sneak peak into the Honeymoon

20120523-185515.jpg

Yes, the wedding actually happened! It was the most incredible day ever and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! I know I went completely missing from the blogosphere for a bit while i was busy planning and working, but I have a TON to tell you as soon as I get back from the honeymoon! Here’s a peak at what I’ve pretty much been doing everyday in Anguilla. I don’t ever want to come back!

Reader Question: Where can I find a bag big enough for my laptop, but sleek enough to wear for a night out?

Q:  I am looking for a bag, preferably black, but a splash of color never hurt anyone. I need it to be big enough that I can slip my laptop in (13″ mac book), but still sleek enough to wear for a night out. I’ve been searching, but I can’t seem to find something nice and still semi-cost effective. Can you help?- Migdalia

A: I know what you mean- it’s definitely always ideal to have a practical bag that you can carry all your essentials for work in, but can easily be brought out with you for that after work cocktail. The good news is that I scoured the web and found some great options for you! Pour La Victoire’s Marseille satchel and Topshop’s leather side zip satchel both have a great shape for your laptop to easily slide in and out of, while still being sleek enough to transfer into your nighttime look. For a more elegant look, try this patent leather one from Kate Spade. And if you’re looking for a little more edge (my personal favorite), go for this leopard number from ASOS. The mix of  leather and animal print will instantly spice up your look!

Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers!

Stocking stuffers are such a fun part of Christmas, mostly because you really don’t know what will be inside… Here are some great stocking stuffer ideas (for the ladies, of course!).stocking-stuffers

1. eos lip balm This egg-shaped lip balm smells incredible and its unique shape makes it easy to find when digging through a large handbag 🙂

2. H&M pom pom socks Fun, comfortable and cozy!

3. J. Crew Archie Grand notebook These notebooks come in a few different colors with cute phrases on the front.

4. Pond’s cleansing towelettes Face it, we all have those nights where we are just too lazy to take off our makeup. Well, this is my secret shortcut. A few sweeps over your face and your ready for bed!

5. Hanky Panky undies I wear these every day! They come in so many pretty colors and are so comfortable that you don’t even feel them.

6. Foot Petals shoe cushions By now, you’re already familiar with my love for Foot Petals…They are great to have on-hand to slip inside your shoes for that extra cushion to get you through the day/night.

7. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish I gave myself the perfect salon mani with this polish! The special design of the brush makes it easy to cover your entire nail in just one swipe.

Latest Obsession: BaubleBar

baublebarIf you follow me on Twitter, you’re already familiar with my latest obsession of fashion jewelry e-commerce site, BaubleBar.  Filled with the latest trends and regularly updated with newest, hottest items, BaubleBar has seriously become my go-to when I’m craving a new statement necklace or chunky bracelet. The best part? It’s a lot of the same pieces that you see in high-end department stores, only at much lower prices!! How could this be true, you ask? The combination of being web-based and dealing directly with designers, allows them to eliminate the high markup. And with the holiday season upon us, I encourage you to take advantage of the online jewelry mecca for your holiday shopping (I already did!).  They even have gift cards available 🙂

Right now, BaubleBar is featuring their 20 Days of Buried Baubles.  Every day through December 20th, they are marking down one “Buried Bauble” (you’ll have to find it with help from their daily clue) to only $10! See today’s clue and find out more here.

Warning: With so much sparkle to look at, BaubleBar may become highly addicting!!
