When I was reading the newspaper this morning, I came across this article in the Wall Street Journal. I thought is was interesting and that I should share it with you.
The article is about fact handbags and how to spot them. The article also has great pictures with it.
Read the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304791204576401534146929212.html#articleTabs%3Darticle

But, I feel obligated to tell you about another scam that is going around. Recently, I heard that people are buying a pair of shoes or a purse from a high end department store, like Saks, then buy the fake of version of the bag. Once they receive the fake version of the bag, they return the fake to the store to get there money back, while they still have the authentic bag. So before you buy a product, researching it, know what they look like and how to spot a fake because you never know if you are getting the authentic or the cheap knock-off.
This is just an outfit I wore out doing arrands on my bike before I left for vacation. I loved it and thought it was so cute a comfortable, I took pictures of it.
Shorts: Eddie Bauer(my sisters)
Scarf: Forever 21 (?)
Bracelets: I don't know where they are from I got them for my Confirmation but I thought they were/are so cute.

Even with tan skin, this bright neon color just look overwhelming. The baggy jacket on Fergie already looks bad, but the bright safety yellow attracts attention to the wrong area. Not that Fergie is fat or anything, the way the coat lies makes her look bigger. It is just a Fashion don't.
On Vacation, I saw this cute little bath store, if you didn't know I am addicted to bath stores like LUSH, Fortune Cookie Soaps, and/or Lux Naturals, so when I saw this store I thought "I must go in". I went is and the customer service was amazing. I didn't want to buy a lot because I didn't know if I would like it. So I just bought something small. I bought the Milk & Honey Bite Size Cupcake Gift Pack because it was just samples and only $6.95.
I haven't tried the bath bomb yet but I bought it mainly for the soap. The soap I loved! It lathered extremely and smelled good. I am officially obsessed with this soap and highly recommend it.
The purchase came with 2 samples, which I don't have in front of me right now but I will post reviews on those products once I use them. I talked to the cheery women who checked me out and they both said that even when you buy online they give you samples. They also told me that the shipping online is $5.95 and to play around with the shipping because "you can buy one soap and pay $5.95 for shipping or you could buy 9 soaps for $5.95 shipping, play around with it." So the customer service was amazing. Not just in store. When I was in the store, one of the women was on the phone because someone was placing a phone order and she was so nice and accommodating to them.
I really recommend this store. If you order anything from there, post a review in the comments or a link to the review in the comments.
In the summer, I constantly bike up to the strip mall down the street. In that strip mall there is a Target (with Starbucks), Sally's Beauty Supply, Game Stop, Kohls, etc. I always stop at Target a pick up a grande Mocha Frappachino with nonfat milk and no whip cream. Then I walk around target a little bit and check things out. Go down the sidewalk to Game Stop to see if C.O.D. Black Ops is on sale yet, and stop in Sally's to look at the new nail polishes and hair brushes. I rarely ever go into Kohls because I am not a hand of there items but, I did find a cute dress there the other day (the first time I went into kohls in a year) and it was only $10.
Anyway, I was looking for suggestions of products I should look at, pick up, check out, or maybe drinks to try. Also, If you would like me to take pictures of cute outfits I see people wearing or take pictures of pieces I see and show you suggestion I think you should wear with them. For example, take a picture of a top I see at Target and a pair of shorts I see at Target and basically put those pictures up here and say I think these would look adorable together. Obviously I would give you the prices too.
Let me know what you guys think and if you have any other suggestions, let me know! If you have an suggestions of stores to go to also let me know. I love riding my bike around town in the summer. To bad the mall is not closer.
If you follow me on twitter, I was tweeting about how I redid my bulletin board, do you guys want me to post a picture of the new bulletin board on here or do you just want a twitpic.
Okay, final question, I lost one pair of sunglasses and broke another, so what kind of sunglasses do you wear or do you have any suggestions of sunglasses to buy?!
Did you not believe me when I said every piece of Valentino was a work of art? Check out their Resort 2011 Collection and tell me what you think now!
