I happened upon Henri Bendel purses accidentally. I’d never really heard of them before, and am rather bummed it took me this long to discover them. Since my fiancé and I will be traveling in a few months for our honeymoon, I wanted to get a purse that was both versatile & cute. Insert the Henri Bendel Jetsetter Mini Convertible Backpack!
This little beauty can be worn three different ways (purse, cross body, or backpack) and is water resistant. While it comes in a larger size, I thought my petite frame would look better with the mini. So glad I chose it! The colors are stunning and it looks so high-end. I paid about $180 for it (this included the site discount and a 20% off coupon for joining the email list). Totally worth it! This will make traveling so fun and luxurious!
On a side note, Henri Bendel constantly has sales, so keep on the lookout. Also, the colors of the bags change all the time. If you see one you love, be sure to purchase it ASAP!
Happy Monday, everyone!
Most of us have been enjoying the beautiful summer weather while on vacation. I love summer traveling because I am able to wear outfits that I might otherwise be unable to show off normally (such as that fancy dress for a night on the town). Beach vacations are my favorite, & I love to wear outfits that are beach approved! Beach resort wear is that easy look that is both comfortable & fashionable. These looks help to make you feel more relaxed while enjoying those sunny days!
I have a big sweet tooth. Particularly for cake. Specifically chocolate cake. So many of my vacations involve trying delicious desserts at new places. A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to visit Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. This is an adorable little town! While exploring, I found a cute bake shop, called nothing other than “The Bake Shoppe.”
We tried a few different things. A cannoli, cheesecake, sugar cookies, & tea cookies. My dad said the cannoli was really good, but my favorite was the cheesecake!
This was so good! You could tell it was made fresh, & the crust was perfect!
All the desserts looked delicious! Also, the portions were big for the prices. Some of the cinnamon rolls were as big as my head!
On future trips, I will definitely be going back to The Bake Shoppe!
Here are a few of my outfits I wore while on vacation. When at the beach, I go for more casual looks. Shorts & t-shirts are a must!
On Monday I took a shopping trip to Bethany Beach, DE. It is the cutest little town! It has so many shops that are unique & adorable! One store I went into was called “Yuppy Puppy.” It had hand-made dog treats, dog toys, & dog gifts. Bethany Beach is definitely more family & community oriented. The whole town is very clean & has a very mellow atmosphere. I loved it! 🙂
With spring arriving, and summer on its way, many of us are making plans to vacay. I know I am! So I thought I’d do a post on a few of my travel essentials.
1. Luggage ~ If your traveling on a plane, having luggage that is sturdy & durable is a necessity. Let’s be honest, having your luggage burst is not a pretty sight. So make sure your luggage has a zipper that can make it through being thrown around. Also, make sure it meets the weight limit once filled. You don’t want to be that person who has to stuff clothes in your coat so your luggage meets the weight limit. Yes, I’ve been there…
2. Tote ~ This is helpful for carrying items you want on the plane. And anything you couldn’t fit in your suitcase. A tote with a lot of inside pockets is a bonus!
3. On Plane Items ~ Magazines are perfect for leisure reading. If you want something with more substance, books are great. However, I’d get a Kindle which is lighter, & offers more reading options. An iPod is a must. This can help drown out any plane noises, & make for a smoother flight. Be sure to have comfortable headphones, too. I usually bring a sleep mask, especially if the flight is during the day. Finally, a Starbucks drink. I usually go for a frap. While there may be some calories, it’s a vacation!
