Canvas and Leather Cha Cha Wristlet

I had to run some errands today, so I decided to use the new wristlet I purchased early this month. This canvas and leather wristlet is from Cha Cha. There is currently a sample sale at the Cha Cha Etsy site. The wristlet was $25.00 (U.S.).

I was pleasantly surprised at the size when it arrived. It is bigger than any wristlet that I own. It was able to hold my wallet, keys, cellphone, bus pass (with holder), lip balm and a notebook and pen.  It can also be used as a clutch.

Dimensions: 13 x 8 (LxH)

One Of A Kind Show And Sale 2009

Yesterday I entered a contest on the Cha Cha blog. I was lucky enough to win two tickets to the One of A Kind Show and Sale 2009 in Toronto. I can't wait to check out the new items that Cha Cha has, as well as the other artisans. Hopefully I find a cool new bag. I better start saving money now.

Ugg Vs. Emu

I would really like to know what the difference is between Ugg and Emu boots.

I do not own a pair of either boots. Both styles of boots look very comfortable. I thought the fad would eventually go away, but every fall and winter they are on the feet of every girl in the city. I have also wondered if you could be too old to wear Uggs or Emu boots. I am not giving away my exact age, but I can say I am not in my 20's.

Someone told me recently that they had them in many colours. I looked at her like she was crazy. She compared it to my bag collection.

I own a pair of pink Warmbat slippers. They look like Ugg/Emu slippers. I wear them all year long even in the summer.

I have considered buying a pair of the boots, but I don't know which one to buy. The look the same to me. However, there is a difference in price. There are also many other companies that sell similar boots.

Marc Jacobs Is Calling

My phone was ringing and the call display showed that it was Marc Jacobs. Someone from his office said that they were going to send me a handbag. I was beyond ecstatic. The phone rang again because they did not get my mailing address.

I woke was all a dream.

They one that I am most interested in are the useful handbag tips. I can use some of the advice, specifically "How Much Should Your Handbag Weigh?"
I appreciate that some posts are done by guest bloggers, therefore you are getting an honest opinion about a product.

iPhone Envy

I have wanted the iPhone since the first time I heard about it. I have not purchased one yet as I am stuck in a 3 year plan that ends in 2011. This week it was finally announced that the other telecom companies in Canada, Bell Canada and Telus Mobility will start selling the iPhone in November 2009.  My current plan is with Telus and I did not want to break my contract.

The other reason I did not go out and buy the iPhone was the cost of the plans. I currently pay $28.25 a month including taxes for my cellphone.

Instead of a new bag for my birthday, I may get the iPhone.

Burberry Prorsum Laser-Cut Suede Tote

When I think of the brand Burberry, I think of the classic check pattern.

I finally finished reading my September issue of Vogue and there was a Burberry ad with Emma Watson (Hermione to Harry Potter lover's). In the ad she was holding a gorgeous bag.

I am a tote bag lover, so of course I was immediately drawn to the Burberry Prorsum line.

Celtic Key Necklace

It is not the Tiffany Key necklace, but I loved it at first sight. I went to Winners to do some shopping - clothing, shoes, handbag. However, the only thing that I bought was the first item I saw when I walked into the store. It was this sterling silver Celtic Key Necklace from Teocalli. Teocalli is Mayan for "House of Creative Energy". I need some of that.  The necklace cost $29.99.
