Happy National Handbag Day

Hola!  Happy Friday to you all!  Did you know that today is a holiday?  Well it is National Handbag Day!  Deemed by the ladies behind the Purse Blog, today is a day to celebrate something that almost all women love…handbags.  I must say that I have always loved a fab bag (and shoe) over clothes any day which is why this is one of my new favorite holidays.

I have selected a few of my favorite bags that I would totally splurge on it if my bank account allowed it.  Featured a crossbody, backpack, clutch, bucketbag, a tote and more…there is something for the handbag lover in all of us!  Let me know your thoughts and don’t forget to share what bag you plan to rock today.  Enjoy NHD!

Friday Sass—Lady Luxe

Hola peeps!  Happy Friday to you all!  Since fall has officially arrived I’ve had the urge to adorn my body in opulent fabrics and textures…soft cashmere, rich wool and smooth leather.  Today sass—Luxe Chic is a reflection of all of my cravings.  I plan to replicate this look without the huge price tags very soon.  Take a peek and let me know your thoughts.  Enjoy your weekend!

My Hair Update—Nerdy Chic to Voluminous Vixen

Hola!  I’ve been having lots of fun with my hair lately.  I give props to the nonexistent, low to no humidity fake summer that we’ve been having here in the Northeast.  I am sure you caught the sarcasm; don’t get me wrong the weather is great for hair but sucks for someone like me who loves warm summer temps.  So on that note I decided to give the dreaded twist-out a try again!  I say that because they have never worked for me except when I was transitioning, well not this time.  In a matter of a day I went from nerdy chic to a voluminous vixen —all because of a fab twist-out!

Read on…

I started out with a slicked back bun which was really an old WnG.
I then washed, detangled and blow dried my hair with low heat.
I put my hair in about eight chunky twists and rolled the ends. The next morning I fluffed and spritzed lightly with hairspray and this is what I got.

I am loving my hair in this fluffy twist-out, if the weather stays the same I just may rock this style for the rest of the summer.  I enjoy the stretched hair and less products, it is a great way to give my hair a break from WnGs.  So thoughts, do you like?  Do tell.
