Handbag Trends and Great Beauty Buys
I am so so so excited! My birthday gift from Hubby is currently circling around in a truck, just waiting to be delivered to my door. I have checked the package delivery update every 20 minutes since I woke up this morning. I’m tired of reading the “on truck for delivery” notice.
I’ll tell you what it is. It’s a brand new Matt & Nat tote! I’m not even going to wait until my birthday to break it in, I’m just so excited. I completely heart Matt & Nat.
Naturally, this soon-to-arrive gift has inspired me to research Spring 2010’s handbag trends (you like how that rhymed?). Here are the highlights:
Oversized: I love oversized bags. Love them. Especially when they have funky textures and cool embellishments. Glad they’re back this season, because admittedly I have quite a few in my closet Hubby’s expecting me to “get a lot—and I mean a LOT of use” out of.
Embellished: From pretty floral treatments to bejeweled studs and even funky chain, the cool adornments are big this spring. I've got my eye on the New Garbo Tote from Be & D. This handbag is equal parts classic and rock, with studded embellishment, whipstitch detail and crisp logo plate. In a word: gorgeous! And it's just the thing for spring, especially with a ladylike dress and a pair of haute heels!
Jewel Tones: Good news! All those fab brightly-colored bags you purchased (or coveted) last year are back in full swing. Break out those amethyst, ruby, emerald and sapphire babies because you are definitely going to be able to get your money's worth out of them this spring! Which is excellent news, because it gives me a little more leeway in my budget for the reapportioning of funds to wickedly wonderful wedges and fabulous flats!
Classic: You can never go wrong with classic styling and exquisite detail! These timeless handbags will still be in style five, ten or twenty years from now! A quintessential handbag is an investment, so don't stint here girls!
On the beauty front, I wanted to point out a few great products I’ve recently discovered. So let’s get to it, shall we?
Delish: Scent is one of the strongest senses we have, which is why we all love great smelling lotions and potions. A delish soap like Jason Satin Soap will leave you feeling refreshed and energized, and a moisturizing lotion like Noah’s Naturals Coconut Vanilla Body Lotion will calm and relax.
Nutrish: Jason Natural Vitamin K Creme Plus for Intense Skin not only moisturizes deeply and leaves skin smooth, it is formulated to reduce spider veins, help bruises heal quickly and lighten undereye circles. Sort of a kill-lots-of-birds-with-one-stone deal.
Soothe, soften and moisturize your skin in the tub with an emollient-packed oil like La Roche-Posay Lipikar Bath Oil. Definitely a go-to for perking up dry winter skin.
Youth-ish: Hmm, sorry. I was really trying to get this category to rhyme with the other two. Anyway, these are some of my fav new good-for-you potions. La Roche-Posay Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate is great for evening out skintone altogether.
Noah’s Naturals Exfoliating Face Scrub is an affordable exfoliant that leaves your skin baby soft and glowing. Follow it with Noah’s Naturals Anti-aging Gel Serum, which is
packed full of antioxidants and immediately rehydrates dry skin and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Youth-ish might also imply blemishes? I didn’t really know where to fit this one in, but it’s so awesome I can’t skip it! No seriously. I wish I had this as a teenager. Or the night before my wedding when I got that stress-induced mountain on my cheekbone. Ugh. Anyway, the First Aid Beauty Blemish Eraser is an over-the-counter acne treatment that literally zaps zits overnight. Even large blemishes improve considerably with one treatment.
And that wraps it up for this month, girls. Shop happy!

Tripeptinon by AminoGenesis
Tripeptinon by AminoGenesis uses the power of amino acids to replenish the skin’s moisture and rebuild its cellular structures. Using 17 select amino acids found in collagen and elastin, this incredible new product is designed to dramatically lift, firm and strengthen facial connective tissues. Derived from plant sources, each amino acid is purified before being added to the final product. These amino acids are the most important protein blocks for healthy skin, as they are the primary players in keeping and locking in moisture.
Key ingredients for younger, more radiant skin:
- Ceramide 2: The connective tissue of your skin can be damaged by the sun, wind and other environmental factors. Once this occurs the skin begins to sag, wrinkle and may look prematurely aged. This wonder nutrient penetrates rapidly to bolster and strengthen crucial skin connective tissues to improve the appearance of sagging, discoloration, dryness and other signs of aging.
- Ubiquinone: This renowned antioxidant is the most powerful in the world, helping to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging
- Amino-acid Ogliopetides: Clinical trials revealed this amino acid complex actually triggers the skin’s own collagen-making and repair mechanism to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, often caused by sun damage
This miracle product gives you flawless skin that would make any Hollywood celebrity envious.
