Fabulous Faux Leather Handbag

Living in LA, vegan and faux leather options are all the rage. I have never found a handbag I have liked that wasn’t real leather. The reason is the faux options tend to look cheap and do not wear well, with the styles sometimes being dated and more trendy than classic. Well, listen up all you hippie dippy, kind hearted souls….there is a fabulous array of handbags that won’t break the bank and will keep your conscience clean.

I have fallen head over heels for the Large Structured Handbag from the Daily Look. This bag resembles the Celine bag that everyone owns, but is only a fraction of the price and is a fashionable non-leather option for those who simply will not wear leather. I still love the Celine bags out there and of course, would love to own one, but this is a wonderful way to get the look without wearing leather and compromising on durability, feel, and style.

I purchased the beauty in black and love the versatility of it. You can add the long strap to wear it on your shoulder and also expand the sides to accommodate an iPad or some magazines and snacks for the plane. I was so pleasantly surprised when I received this handbag in the mail and took it for a spin around my neighborhood. I already have received so many compliments and cant wait to take it out more.

You can buy this bag at http://www.dailylook.com for $74.99 in black, navy, or raspberry.

Get Your Fixx

I recently went to Scottsdale, Arizona to visit some dear friends of mine. As I was in AJ’s specialty store picking up some flowers for a friend that has been ill, they were sampling Fixx Chocolate Bars. I admit, I was skeptical and just thought, okay, I will have a little bite of sugar while they wrap my flowers.

I was so very pleasantly surprised when I tossed the first bite of the Chelle’s bar in my mouth. It is a handmade chocolate bar that is comprised of creamy cashew nougat, caramel, and roasted cashews. Um….move over Snicker’s bar… Sheriff Chelle is in town. This dream of a chocolate bar was so beautifully presented in two smaller bars in a white box. They are fancy little chocolate bars that are full of the most expertly mixed flavors and textures that delight the tiny little taste buds and make your eyes light up with joy. The Fixx bars are the best chocolate bars I have tasted in a long time. And anyone that knows me, knows that I will never pick chocolate as my favored treat, but in this case, I have been won over and in fact, I now crave it. I will start lobbying to all the local markets to start stocking my new favorite candy bar so I can get my weekly Fixx. Yes, fellow skinny girl Angelenos, I will openly admit that I am going to eat sweets every week!

If you are lucky enough to live in Scottsdale, venture out to AJ’s and grab as many bars as you can because when I went back for more, they were sold out! Make sure you are going straight home though, because although the pretty box it comes in will protect it from getting crushed, that Arizona heat is sure to melt it in mere seconds. I mean I almost melted in that heat too!
