Purse Accessories from FUMI

Monday, October 25th, 2010

You can accessorize purses with some great products from FUMI. Two of their great purse accessories include the FUMI Bracelet Pursehook and the FUMI Scarlett Sash.

FUMI stands for: Fashionable, Unique, Multipurpose, Innovation

I received a FUMI Bracelet Pursehook. The FUMI is a pursehook, bangle bracelet, and works as a decorative purse accessory. It can hold up to 25 lbs.  The FUMI pursehook is all ecofriendly, right down to the packaging and recycled rubber padding. I did NOT think I would like this as a bracelet, but it turns out that I do! I like it because it’ll be with you at all times, you can get it any style, and you will never have to put your purse on a restaurant floor again. These would be great as bridal shower favors. These are also great for birthday party favors for adults or teens. Especially if the party involves taking a trip somewhere, where you’d use the FUMI purse hook.

Violet Love Boho Headbands Review

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

boho headbands

Boho chic is my new favorite way of dressing. And what goes perfect with a boho chic aesthetic? Fabric headbands. Nothing says “glamorous hippie” like a headband that goes across the forehead! But the Violet Love headbands can be worn in more ways than just that.

First off, love the name of the store. Right? They specialize in headbands, but also offer leggings and shirts. I was sent two of their headbands to review.

Strut, strut, strut! Fall & Winter 2011 Boots

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

fall 2011 boots

The website Ssense.com has some great designer selections for winter 2011 boots. They also have lots of designer fashion on sale if you are persistent enough in your searching.

I focused on Winter 2011 boots and found three pairs of boots I would wear in an instant. The first ones, would look great with some black tights and a floral dress and cardigan over that. In case you think I’ve thrown ALL practicality out the window, the last pair are flat boots that are chic, despite having zero heel at all.

Guy and Eva Jewelry Review and Giveaway (Taylor Swift Jewelry!)

Taylor Swift Jewelry Preference: The Gabriella Earrings by Guy and Eva

I didn’t know about Guy and Eva until a couple weeks ago, and they are a company very worth knowing about! This is the part where I arch an eyebrow and ask if YOU know about them. Nudge, nudge.

This jewelry line started off being sold in stores and boutiques, but so many people wanted to be involved, that now Guy and Eva is sold by hostesses who benefit from sharing great jewelry with friends, family and even strangers. People can be advisor’s or a Hostess. When you do this, you’re making money and getting free jewelry. Not bad, eh? (You can buy the jewelry online too. Just press “1” if you don’t have an advisor.)

Celebrities Wear and Love Guy and Eva

See, Guy and Eva is actually pretty big. LOTS of celebrities have this company on their radar, which is surprising to me because the jewelry isn’t all that expensive at all.

Celebrities who wear Guy and Eva include: Eliza Dushku,Taylor Swift, Paris Hilton, Victoria Justice, Ashley Greene, Aisha Tyler (and magazines like Lucky and InStyle have both featured Guy and Eva jewelry.) Plus, even Gossip ... Read More

Giveaway & Sanuk Reviews: Junebug, Donna, I’m Game

sanuk

If you want comfortable shoes (and Lord, who doesn’t?) then I have a really wonderful shoe brand suggestion for you. Only, they don’t market themselves as shoes. (They’re shoes, don’t get me wrong, you wear the on your feet and all that.) But even the IDEA of shoes makes you think of something tight, uncomfortable, and annoying to put on. So, meet SANUK:”These are not shoes, they’re sandals.” You get what a shoe needs to be, with the comfort a sandal has. Do the math and it adds up to: YES.

Fun fact: Sanuk is the Thai word for FUN.

How to say Sanuk: Saah-nook

You can get Sanuk’s for Men, Women or Kids. They make flip flops and sidewalk surfers, and even a couple boot styles.

I was sent some Sanuk’s to try out. What did I discover? Uh, that I loved them. And then everyone else was trying them on and discovering that they loved them, too. Suddenly, I might be left Sanuk-less if I don’t hide them!

The soles are soft and conformed to my feet as I walked (like a top model, for sure.) Slip-on shoes are pretty much ideal for a slacker like me, and so I love them. I recommend the sidewalk surfers to be worn in spring, summer and fall. The ... Read More

Some of the Best Everyday Sneakers for Wide Feet (Brooks Brand Review)

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

best shoes for travel walking

As a casual sort o’ gal, I love to wear sneakers –  A LOT. When it came time to get a new pair, I was looking at the Brooks Brand of Shoes.While I hadn’t worn any before, I figure that it can only do me good to branch out into knowing and wearing more sneaker brands. Just because I know other brands more doesn’t mean they’re more suited to me. I reached out to Brooks Brand, and they were kind enough to send me out a pair of sneakers to try out.

But first, I told them exactly what I was looking for. And what DO I look for? Comfort, for one thing. And the shoes need to be durable, since, as I said, I wear sneakers a lot. And call me shallow, but I care what things LOOK like. I don’t want to wear ugly shoes, you know?

I was sent the Brooks Glycerin 8. Immediatley after slipping these puppies on I could feel a comfortable difference in these sneakers over other’s I’ve worn. Also, these are super cute-tastic. They’re sporty, but not without an artistic design element to them.

womens winter hats

It’s getting time to think about scarves, gloves and hats! Well, now I’ve got the hat part covered thanks to Isis, a shopping site that specializes in women’s wear for active women.

View it! My New Wrought Iron Headboard Decal from Trading Phrases

wrought iron headboard decal

Hopefully you are already aware of what wall decals are, and how much they can help transform any space in your home, apartment or dorm room. (I WISH I’d known about these when I was in an ugly dorm.) Trading Phrases has a great selection of wall decals, and I really love their name. Because really, isn’t that what wall decals are all about? Getting a fun change up to a room, without a permanence to it. This means you can decorate a nursery and not let your kid grow up into their teenage years with little ducks on their walls. (Unless they had a thing for ducks, and wanted to.)

I was able to sample a decal from Trading Phrases. It arrived quickly, and in a tube (because the decal I picked was the Wrought Iron Headboard Decal, meaning it’s all one long piece.) I am going to be eco-friendly and ke ... Read More

Life Unexpected Style: Lux at School

life unexpected style

It was hard to find the right dress for this Life Unexpected Lux Style Feature. I picked a dress from Mod Cloth, since I figure Lux would realistically shop there.  Aside from what I linked below, you might like this blue ruffled dress. I ended up picking three Modcloth dresses.

To complete this look, have some tousled, messy hair and wear a long pendant necklace and some knee-high boots.
