I got a new Hermes Birkin bag...well, almost :-)

So...I have been wanting a Hermes Birkin bag for well over 10 years, since I was 16. I love the style, the shape, size and even the fixtures of the bag. As much as I love the bag, it's really expensive- a Hermes bag costs more than what I presently owe on my car loan, I know I won't be getting one any time soon or maybe even ever!

I will settle for a look alike and that's exactly what I purchased from Just Fab. Just Fab is one of those membership sites like Shoe Dazzle, that sends you a monthly showroom of items to possibly purchase based on your style preferences. Just Fab sells shoes, handbags and even jewelry. 

I purchased this bag last week, it's called the Law bag. It's inspired by the Hermes Ostrich Birkin bag. It's made out of faux ostrich material and it comes with gold fixtures. It's available in 7 other colors perfect for Spring, three of the colors are already sold out. This bag is huge, the size is 17 length x 12 height x 5.5 width. It can be carried by the handles or with the detachable strap that's included. It's big enough to be carried as a tote or purse. 

I love Just Fab, it's sponsored by my girl-Kimora Lee Simmons Hounsou- (I love her!) and the site has some of the best stylists including the lovely ladies from Who What Wear. This is my second handbag purchase from them and I just love their bags, they're stylish, sturdy and, they're big enough to carry anything. 

It comes lined with three pockets inside and a one compartment in the back. 

I'm so in love with this bag, it's still sitting on my sofa at home... I haven't even worn it yet because I'm still admiring it, I love it! The price of their items are $39.95, which includes shipping and handling. The only thing that I don't like about their bags is that when you receive them, they have a strong new smell to them. I usually let the bag air out a few days before carrying it...other than that, I'm so in love with this bag and I will be strutting like it's a real Hermes :-)

Do you have a favorite handbag on your wish list?

Thanks, Lynnie!

I love it, you should get one.
I love the bag and your nails! Cute. Cute. Cute. The bag's color makes it more versatile so you can get a lot of wear out if. Can't wait for the OOTD post :-)

@GirlRatesWorld: Thanks, Nicole! I really would love to do an OOTD, I need to find someone to take a good pic though...I'm usually never satisfied with my outfit pics.

@Agent Elle: I'm glad you got it, you really should get the second one. I called Just Fab today and the rep said it will only be available until the end of April.

@Goddesslily Seymour: Thanks Ms. Lily, I know what you mean... if I was rich, I would have a Hermes bag in every color!

@socialitedreams: Good choice, I've been wanting the Michael Kors Astor bag for a while now...I'm going to get it one day. He has an outlet store not to far from me.

@Dreek: Thanks, girly!

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…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
