If there is only one thing I want for Christmas this year, it’s necklaces! And the fun ones, not those super expensive single diamond/jeweled ones that my Dad buys my mother every year. I really don’t understand the appeal of those kinds. Give me something with a little bit more personality to it!
I finally got my latest Black Bag purchase. I actually spend a whole week trading items with other Black Bag shoppers. It took a really long time for me to be satisfied enough with what was in my bag this time!
The one thing I definitely didn’t want to give up was the Nila Anthony Mesh Satchel. When I saw it, I knew it would make an awesome gym bag. I know, GYM BAG! But it’s sleek and stylish, compared to my carry-on that I was originally using.
I’ve started a massive collection of ZAD jewelry. Now add on these two: ZAD Zig-Zag Printed Cuff and ZAD Hammered Collar. I really like the collar and it was a big hit at the bridal shower along with the new asymmetrical dress I brought this weekend. (Will take pictures of that soon, I hope. I’m really bad at finding time to take pictures)
The final item I got is the Case-Mate Waddler Case for the iPhone. Like I really need any more iPhone cases, but this is so cute. However I kept trading it for other cases like the mummy or the vampire one. But somehow the waddler kept coming back. Had to keep it!
This is going to be my last black bag for a while, since I really need to set aside money for (1) my Hawaii Trip in August/September (I’ve already brought my plane tickets and BFF is super, duper excited); (2) my friend, Amy’s Wedding in July (still need to purchase wedding gift and book hotel); and finally (3) purchase my RUN FOR YOU LIVES 5k Obstacle course run in August. My summer weekends are getting book left and right!
I finished my 5K on Sunday in about 32 minutes. Totally beat my goal which was to beat my sister’s time of 39 minutes. 7 minutes different! YES! My girl Holly finished her in 41 minutes and she’s looking good. She wouldn’t let me take a picture of her yet, but believe me, she is going to be that really hot red-headed soccer mom all the teen boys….well you know! Her weight-loss program is totally different from I went through, but whatever works and helps!!

Got my second Little Black Bag purchase today! I spent a couple day of trading with other members for something better, but stuck with my first choice: BCBGeneration Natural Leopard Clutch (Reg. $68). I orginally got some plain earrings and a wine holder along with it, but kept trading them with others till I got items I like, and would actually use!
Etsy has to be my favorite place to find unique and fun stuff. My favorite piece so far is my Harry Potter Cuff (above, yup big Potter fan)! I wear it everyday. Today I’ve been searching for things that fly. Birds, clouds, planes….
Anyone else excited about the L.A.M.B. for nOir Jewlery?! I already love nOir jewels especially their fun animal rings (I put ‘Jules the Octopus‘ and ‘Natalie the Shark‘ on my 30th Birthday gift list)! Add in my obsessive collection of Gwen Stefani fashions/accessories, and you’ve got a happy girl!
I would really love to get the two above. Let’s hope that I will be able to order me some! The collection will be available at department stores, high end specialty boutiques, and online at noirjewelry.com sometime in February 2012! So far I haven’t found a confirm date yet. Has anyone else?
