Top 5 Mardi Gras Bags

Top 5 Mardi Gras Bags: Phat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but any holiday that encourages you to indulge in decadent foods (Did you know Mardi Gras was originally a binging festival so people could stock up, so to speak, on fatty foods ahead of giving up their favorite treats for Lent?), wear anything and everything flashy, and let loose in the streets gets my support. Maybe you’re storming the French Quarter as we speak or maybe you didn’t even realize beads were being tossed around with reckless abandon today.

Chinese New Year Bags

A Bag for Every Sign: Happy Chinese New Year!

Today officially marks the first day of the Year of the Monkey! My son was born in the Year of the Golden Monkey, so I’m naturally biased towards this sign. Monkeys are most creative and intelligent, and they’re also known for being playful, enthusiastic, and highly social. This is the Year of the Red Fire Monkey, and it’s being said anything can happen in 2016, particularly when it comes to personal endeavors. Might I suggest acquiring a new bag as your first personal endeavor of the new year?

Top Happy-Go-Lucky New Bags

Happy-Go-Lucky Bags: Spring is in the Air

This spring is all about projecting an innocent spirit. I’m loving the sense of optimism and joyful attitude that’s already in full effect. It’s the perfect way to start off the new year, one that, by the look of things, is guaranteed to be a good one. It also looks like it will be nothing but picnics all season, and I am definitely okay with that! Come prepared to soak up the sun with the right bag…

Top 10 Cures for the Blues

Top 10 Cures for the Blues

The word “blue” has gotten a bad rap in modern times, particularly in American culture. Blue Christmas, the Monday blues, singing the blues, heck, blue balls…I could go on until I’m blue in the face! In reality, blue is the most uplifting color of all. Just look to the sky on a bright, sunny day. It’s an instant mood-enhancer, just like crystal-clear blue water.

Top Bag-Inspired Accents: All About Ornaments

Dangling bag-themed decorations feel perfect for this time of year. They’re like tiny ornaments. I mean, how amazing would it be to have an entire tree trimmed with these cuties? Each one of these, from bag charms and key chains to brooches and earrings, is great as a gift, but I’ve already got my Christmas gifts covered. Which means I’m getting these for myself! Good things do come in small, bag-shaped packages.

Top Manic Monday Bags: Manic for Pink

Yellow is perky and red is hot, but if you ask me, no color energizes my spirits and warms my mood like pink. Which makes it the perfect way to kick off a busy week, as well as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s also rapidly becoming the unofficial color of the season.
