5 Bags Every Woman Should Own

All of us have a little crazy bag lady somewhere inside of us. At one point I was carrying 3 different types of bags everyday! But since I've got older, and my children are a little older(i no longer have to carry a diaper bag) I only carry one bag. A big part of being a fashion consultant is to break down every woman's wardrobe into what is called the essentials or what we need. This is my list of the 5 essential handbags that every woman should own.
The Everyday Bag:
This is a bag that you will carry everyday. It should be large enough to carry all of the things you need .It should be a neutral color or a classic color like navy, white or black that will go with anything. Since you will be using it all of the time, it should also be made of great quality. Michael Kors and Tory Burch have a great selection of everyday bags.

The clutch:
the clutch is one of the smallest bags made so you will only be able to carry your necessities in this bag. Always make sure when you purchase a clutch that it was pockets in the side to hold your drivers license and Visa because you won't be able to fit your wallet in most of these bags.

Investment piece:
This is a bag that is timeless and will only increase in value as it gets older. Don't buy trendy bags or bags with crazy prints because they will not be worth as much as a classic black or other solid colors.  Do your research on the top brands before you splurge. Also check out some online auction sites like eBay, sometimes designer bags sell for at 3 times the original amount that was paid for them. Make sure the is bag authentic before you buy it, if you buy a fake bag it is worthless. 

The Classic Quilted Bag:
Of course it doesn't have to be Chanel, but doesn't every woman deserve a classic Chanel quilted bag? It doesn't have to be black, it can be a fun red, pink, white or whatever you like. You would carry this bag on date nights, meetings or other special occasions. It doesn't have to be a specific style either, it can be a clutch, satchel, or shoulder bag. 

The On Trend Bag:
This is an inexpensive bag that you would buy because it is trendy or popular at the moment. You don't necessarily have to have just one, if your like me you will end up with dozens. Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, and HM have great selections for on trend bags every season. Backpacks, cross-body bags, neon colors, bright floral prints, and cutouts are huge this season.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
