Go Green for Earth Day



I found this bag on Etsy.com at TheWren store (or search for coffee bag) just in time for Earth Day. Bags don't get much greener, or cooler looking, than this - check it out. Made in Cape Town from a recycled jute coffee sack, with organic hemp lining, environmentally dyed, sewn with pure cotton thread, from a farm that is FAIR TRADE - and as a bonus - bag closes with a handmade wood button made from Poplar wood. Can't you imagine yourself traveling both near and afar with this great market bag? My favorite are the one's with the elephants - I need to keep an eye out for those - definitely on my wish list.

Price of this Tygr Luxe Infatuation Item - $54 - $68.

London Fog - Weather or Not



I honestly never knew London Fog made anything but raincoats until Oprah featured one of their purses a few months ago. Ever since I've been checking out their website periodically and I found the attached fabulous change purse. I love patent leather items since they always look new and wear like iron. This is on sale now and will be gone shortly.


This Tygr Luxe Infatuation - available at londonfog.com $19.99.

Baby your Legs for Summer!



I love to use products designed for babies whenever possible since they are gentle and usually smell sweet. Burt's Bees Apricot Baby Oil is no exception. I've been using this for years on my legs during the summer. Your skin will have a nice sheen and the smell of apricot will catch your attention from time to time throughout the day. Go ahead and baby your legs this summer!

Need Some Daily Inspiration?



Delias Thompson of Atlanta features her sterling silver custom jewelry on Etsy.com. I have ordered several bracelets from Delias and they are all spectacularly gorgeous. Last year for Valentine's Day I asked my husband to write some thoughts down so I could have them inscribed on a bracelet. Let's just say he misunderstood my instructions and wrote 3 bracelets worth of lovely thoughts. I didn't have the heart to tell him he wrote too much - so now I have three fabulous bracelets, secretly inscribed. Only he and I know the words are there and I wear them every day. Have a loved one write some special words for you - or have your favorite poem or saying close to you always. Happy Wearing!

Price of this Tygr Luxe Item - $48.00 for 1-sided inscription or $58.00 for 2-sided inscription.

Make your Personal Correspondence Stand Out - Literally



I ordered these letterpress mini-notes from Dingbat on Etsy.com. They are absolutely gorgeous and came with mini-lopes perfect for gift giving. Dingbat is a perfect example of the revival of letterpress printing. Once considered out touch once modern printing arrived, letterpress stationery has undergone a drastic revival in the past 10 -15 years and is now considered high-end and unique. Letterpress printing gives dimension to the design or wording of the printing actually pressing the design into the paper. Many modern brides dream of using letterpress printed wedding invitations. Try these out - for the price (or less) of those mass-produced gift tags - choose letterpress instead and make a lasting impression on your gift recipient.

Price of this Tygr Luxe Item is $8.00.

James Bond Cool Lipstick



I initially bought this lipstick from Avon for a fundraiser and now I'm hooked. This lipstick reminds me of a cool gadget from a Bond movie - silver with no separate cap, just a slide and a cover which can be opened single handed with one fluid motion . The price is right for this too - currently on sale at Avon.com. I love the Natural Glisten shade and plan to order a couple as these are Limited Edition Colors. Avon has joined the 21st century - you can now order online and have it delivered to your local Avon representative at no additional cost - check it out at Avon.com.

Price of this Tygr Luxe Feature Item - $5.99 as of post date
