There are certain ZARA items that have reached cult status among bloggers – these colorblock heels, THAT napkin skort and last winter’s sought-after plaid scarf. Two popular items from this season are the Court Shoes with Bows and the Mini City Bag with Zip Details.
I saw the Mini City bag in person, and I’m in love – it’s a GORGEOUS taupe-ish pink color…and looks like a cross between the Celine Nano (structure & zip) and Pashli Mini bag (button tab on the handles). Although I was seriously tempted by the bag, I left it in store so that I could think about it. What would you do – get this adorable faux-leather bag (which costs less and may last a season or two with heavy use) or invest in the Pashli Mini (which is pricier but made of real leather, with a reputation for durablity?)
I’m featured on Blossom Lounge’s blog after completing the Blossom X BKR Water challenge! In my mind, I had always thought of myself as someone who drinks a lot of water (I never leave the house without a bottle!)…but in reality, I wasn’t drinking as much as I should have been. Participating in this challenge made me more aware of my drinking habits – and it showed me that consistently drinking adequate water REALLY does help my skin look its best!

Gwyneth Paltrow has been in the news non-stop since she decided to ‘consciously uncouple’ from Chris Martin. Although she used an unusual (and some might say pretentious) phrase to describe her separation, as long as she has her family’s best interests at heart, I can’t fault her. On a more frivolous note, I’ve always had a huge style crush on her – if you have too, you’ll want to check out my Steal Her Style post – which includes some fashion misses as well as hits!
