Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

rebecca+minkoff+stud+devote Rebecca Minkoff Black Friday Weekend Online Sale!

rebecca+minkoff+stud+devote+handbag Rebecca Minkoff Black Friday Weekend Online Sale!Rebecca Minkoff’s Stud Devote handbag (above) is my handbag soulmate. I am OBSESSED with this bag, and you can see why. If I could design the perfect purse, this would be it. I love its modern sophistication with rock and roll edge.

The Stud Devote is a conversation piece. Every time I wear it, strangers stop me on the street. In fact, earlier this week when I swung by my local Starbucks to pick up a Caramel Brulee Latte (soy, no whip), a woman stopped me to ask who made the bag and where she could buy her own. At $550+, depending on where you purchase, this bag packs quite a pricey punch. But with a handbag this gorgeous, it’ll be the only one you care to carry.

Now through Monday, November 30th, Rebecca Minkoff is hosting a Black Friday sale; she’s slashing prices on her collection. The Stud Devote (in Almond, Papaya, Plum and Steel) is $400 – down from $695. Hit up the sale now…quantities are limited.

Also, this entire weekend, Rebecca Minkoff is raffling off three bags a day! So don’t miss out on some seriously chic arm candy.

If you love the look of the Rebecca Minkoff tote, but your purse strings are a little tight, this one by Deux Lux is a budget friendly alternative.
