finding the right handbag

Buying the next “it” handbag is a serious matter.  It is a purchase that cannot be made on a whim; it must be well considered and well researched.  It is a big deal. Why? Because the handbag makes a statement about the woman carrying it.  It is an extension of her. She and the bag […]

I am particularly weak when it comes to being distracted, and my distractions can range from shiny objects or gadgets to Monk or Bones marathons.  I am […]
