Pashmina Wrap {review}

Do you want to know how to simply update your look without spending an arm and leg on numerous amounts of expensive accessories? It’s easy to do with a wrap, shawl, or scarf!

You can wear a wrap, shawl, or scarf in numerous ways that all look great! I would totally encourage you to Google “How to wear a Shawl” to see how stylish and  professional you can look!

Recently I was able to review a A Pink Pashmina Wrap from Pashmina Ladies. I love this wrap! It’s hot pink (fuschia) with a light pink jacquard pattern pashmina shawl which is made with 70% top-quality pashmina wool and 30% luxurious silk. This wonderful crafted wrap, in beautiful hot pink with light pink, is 27″ x 68″ in size with 3″ hot pink tassels on both ends. I love wearing it whether I’m looking to dress casual or more formal!

I love the selection of colors that Pasmina Ladies offers and thinking about possibly getting a blue one! I’m falling in love with the Cosmos blue with navy jacquard pattern pashmina shawl!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you haven’t gotten your mom something yet or your are still currently looking how about checking out Pashmina Ladies. Most scarves start out at 19.99.

Reverse-A-Purse {review & giveaway}


After recently being introduced to Reverse-A-Purse, I may never purchase another purse again! What makes these purses so much more appealing to me than others on the market?  Well, one reason is that it lets me create three different looks! I don’t know about you, but personally I like to change up the look of my purse every once in awhile to match my outfit or the current seasons we have throughout the year.

There are several different purse styles available from Reverse-A-Purse that you can choose from.  Some of the styles include the Swing Clutch, Contemporary, Tote, Club Luxe, and many more. I choose to go with the Urban Wrap. I choose that specific style because it can convert from purse to hipster. I almost went with the tote because I tend to have my children in tow with me but I figured it would be nice to get something specifically for myself for when I go out without them that wasn’t too big.

As shown in the photo, Reverse-A-Purse lets you create three different looks with one new purse by simply reversing or removing the outer decorative cover! They have many great patterns to choose from and I being partial to the color red and Asian looking things went with the “Lip Stick Pattern” for my purse.

I love Reverse a Purse, the covers are so easy to change and reverse with ease! You simply attach the cover onto three buttons on the outside that are covered by the top part of the purse. I love that I no longer have to move all the things in one of my purses and that I can easily change the look by having a few more decorative covers on hand!

This purse is a smart frugal buy and would make a wonderful gift! I’m looking to eventually purchase another patterned cover for the spring and summer seasons soon! I would recommend fanning Reverse a Purse on Facebook & following them on Twitter for all the latest deals and news!

Special Promotional Code!

Joey Junior Purse Organizer Review and Giveaway (closed)

joeylogo2zebraorganizer 83912
I’m for organization, though if you took a look into my 2 bedroom little apartment, you might say otherwise. I’m s till organized but everything seems cluttered, you know how that can be when you don’t have a lot of room to work with.

One item, I struggle to keep organized is my purse. I’m constantly digging through it, things get moved around, stuff gets misplaced with I transfer things to another purse, and the end results is time lost and frustration. With my purse, I never seem to win. That’s why I have to be appreciative of companies like Joey Junior whom noticed this issue and created several stylish sizes and variations of Purse Organizers for women!

I am reviewing the Joey Junior Original Purse Organizer in the Mountain Zebra Print. Sure, I could have gone with a solid color or luxery ultra suede but I was in the mood for a fun animal print!

I set my new organizer on the table and went to work in making  my purse a new improved place. The fact that this organizer stands up and folds together so easily with it’s velcro so compact is so very helpful!

blbagopenThe Purse Organizer has several roomy pockets for things like your cell phone, business cards, lip balm, compact, pen and paper, and whatever else you may find in a purse. A clip and tether is also added to keep your keys safe and secure, not to mention easy to dig out!

I can now find everything I need in a no time at all, and if I so choose to switch out my purse for a date night, for church, or in the name of fashion, I can do that easily with my Joey Junior Purse Organizer!

I have no dislikes about this product, I just hope they’ll eventually come out with a larger organizer in baby friendly patterns for easy diapers bag organization!

The Joey Junior Purse Organizer is a great purse accessory that I would highly recommend to all. Retailing from $14-$25 depending what size and type you purchase, the Joey Junior Purse Organizer can be found on the Joey Junior website as well as at other online retailers.
