Dare to Bare, NO Makeup...

Hey Glamour Dolls!

I was inspired by the gorgeous Sabina at Makeup Addict. She did a Dare to Bare, No Makeup post earlier in the year... I finally got up enough nerve to bare my face without any makeup on my blog. Here goes...

It pains me to post this pic but it is what it is... I really only wear a full face of makeup 2 days a week, you would think I would be more comfortable without makeup!

Do you to Dare to Bare?

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…
