Rebecca Minkoff Black Friday Weekend Online Sale!

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.

Origins Peace of Mind: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

origins+peace+of+mind Origins Peace of Mind: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideHere’s one of my holiday pet peeves: you’re involved in a gift swap and the max amount you can spend is $10. Don’t cha just hate that? What inevitably ends up happening is you wind up buying some throwaway gift and you think to yourself, “I should have just put an Alexander Hamilton in an envelope and been done with it.”

Well, this year when you find yourself in that situation, I have the perfect gift pick: Origins Peace of Mind.

Peace of Mind is Origins’ original stress-buster. When the world closes in on you and your head feels a size too small, apply just two dabs and you’ll feel a tingling sensation as pressure, tension and tightness begin to melt away.

Any time I’ve got a lot on my mind and have trouble relaxing before bedtime, I dot this stuff on my temples, between my brows and on the nape of my neck. It’s like a creamy, liquid lullaby. So next time you have to buy a present and penny-pinch, give the gift every one wants and needs: a good night sleep.

Origins Peace of Mind is available at Macy’s and origins.com.
