 This came to my inbox the other day and I  had to check it out.  If my kids names were Suri, Honor or Pax I just might be tempted to buy all this up. It is so freaking cute.  Could you imagine seeing a 5 year old rocking a Gucci purse?  Maybe someone will do a cute knock off.  To see the whole collection visit

Santa's Little Helpers: Hangover Kit as party favors

Are you having a Adult Christmas party and want a cute favor to give to all of your guest?  How about making "Hangover Kits!"  I made these for a bachelorette party and they were a hit.

Some suggestions for your kit...
Individual packs of Advil
Gatorade Power Mixes
Rubber Bands
Gel Cooling Eye Mask

Check out your local dollar store or buy in bulk from Amazon.

I put mine in Chinese food containers but you could also do Cello Bags. A great source for containers is Nashville Wraps. 

Tie with a cute bow and use a cute tag like this one.  If you want this tag like us on Facebook or re-post to FB or your blog. Leave us a comment with your email address and we will email you the PDF!

Holy Hermes! World's priciest purse sold for $203,000

Friday, December 9, 2011

You know I am totally all over this. Hermes is my fantasy dream brand (maybe my husband is going to surprise me for Christmas)....but WOW!  REALLY!?!?!?

I thought I would write my own blog post on this but the one written by Justin Fenner for Styleite just summed it up all too well...Check this out...

Holy Hermes! World's priciest purse sold for $203,000

A record-setting Herm├Ęs diamond Birkin bag
The record-setting bag was sold to an anonymous collector.

Clearly not everyone in America is still feeling the strain of the recession. Early this week someone very, very wealthy bought a handbag for over $200,000 at an auction in Dallas, breaking the world record for the highest amount of money ever bid on a purse.
While the person who bought the handbag chose to remain anonymous, the bag itself is known all over the world. The pricey purse was an Hermes Birkin, easily one of the most iconic and expensive handbags ever made.Women’s Wear Daily reports the record-breaking model was made from shiny deep red crocodile skin and accented with 18K white gold and diamond hardware, and sold for exactly $203,150. Who needs a nice, solid, single family home when you’ve got style like that?
Hermes made the first Birkin bag for actress Jane Birkin in 1984, and since then it’s become an almost legendary piece of fashion history. Until April 2010, the bags were produced in such limited quantities that women who wanted them had to sign up for a wait list — and some of them waited for as long as six years before they were invited to make an actual purchase. The bags come in four sizes, all of which are lined with goatskin, and prices can vary wildly depending on the materials used on the exterior. But chances are, even the plainest of Birkins won’t sell for less than $8,000 to $10,000.
But even though the bags are expensive to begin with, this one took the cake. Even the auctioneers were surprised that the bag went for that much, saying “this was certainly an exceptional price, exceeding our highest expectations at every corner.”
If by “highest expectations” they meant “the boundaries of common sense and restraint,” then they’re absolutely right.
