What YOUR bag says about YOU!

Yahoo! Finance has a great article about bags and what that cute, handy, sometimes expensive, and definitely important accessory says about the type of woman you are. It may show how luxurious, sporty, fun or powerful you are. Handbags, totes, purses and clutches all fit the category and any kind of bag is a MUST when it comes to accessories. You can go without your sunglasses and even leave the house without some jewelry but going out without a bag??! Forget about it! So see what your handbag says about you; you might be surprised!!

Also: Urban Outfitters has some GREAT affordable bags so find one that suits you HERE.

Well it doesn't have to be MAC; that's just my makeup of choice. An article on SHINE by YAHOO! found that one third of women refuse to leave their houses without makeup on. Also, nearly half of the women who participated in this poll (about 3,000 women) said that they would rather wear makeup than show their bare face. Why is that? Is it because we care that much about what people think about us? Maybe the media has taught us to always look our best because it's already some type of competition. Maybe we just feel good when we look good? I personally hate to admit that I feel a little bit better on days that I wear makeup, but I do also go out without it. What is it about makeup that makes it such an essential part of our daily routine? Thoughts?

oh and FACT: less... is DEFINITELY more.




The Hunger Games (which is a bestselling book series by Suzzane Collins) is currently in the process of being turned into a movie. The Hunger Games is one of my favorite series and the final installment (book 3: Mockingjay) was released last August. I truly cannot wait for this movie to come out. I am a little ahead of myself however because they are currently in the process of casting. Elle Fanning, who is the younger sister of superstar actress Dakota Fanning, is being looked at to play the role of Prim Everdeen who is the younger sister of the series' main protagonist Katniss Everdeen. For those of you who have read the series, is she a good choice? I personally think she would do the role justice. Thoughts?

We live on a planet with very finite resources. Everyone is worried about global warming and recycling and this is all very well but do we all consider the simple things we can do to protect the planet? And when it comes to water the best thing to do is throw out (or rather... RECYCLE) all those plastic bottles lying around and opt for a reusable water bottle! This way we save resources and save a lot of money on water that we can get from our sinks at home. Although this plan is IDEAL, let's face it... many people like to go for convenience! And even though plain old tap water (filtered of course) is the purest water you can get for FREE, it isn't always conveniently obtained. So... if you MUST ruin the Earth by polluting it with all your littered, PLASTIC water bottles, you might as well be getting the best out there. Yahoo SHINE! has a great article about the highest and lowest grade bottled water out there. Take a look and see if the bottled water you spend countless dollars on is really any better than what you can get from your kitchen sink. Check out the article on Yahoo HERE.
