Have You Heard of Lisa Lavie -- I'm sure you will!

I was bored one late night this past weekend and so was surfing youtube and stumbled upon some amazing musicians that have yet to be labeled, discovered, etc....but one that I am sure will need no introduction soon is Lisa Lavie -- have you all heard her voice? I love her music, she has an album coming out in May on itunes - I believe it was produced by the same person who works with Mariah Carey. Anyway, Lisa's voice is so unique and I just love it! One of her songs got like 1.5 million hits in about 3 days and youtube suspended her account because they thought she was a bot. She has a cute video on youtube about that, I thought it was funny...anyway, here is a couple links to her. I am looking forward to hearing her on the radio.

My fav song by her:

Checking In!

Hey all, sorry I haven't posted lately! I've got some amazing bags in store for you soon! I am loving the whole gathered look and the green corduroy, but I am taking it in a slightly different direction which you will see soon, so stay tuned! Never fear, I'm keeping the gathered bags, but I will have some other ones that will have a little different, unique look! I hope you will love them as much as I do! I hope to have one posted up this weekend.

Oh, I've gotten a lot of feedback/comments around the whole curly girl previous post -- I'm so glad to hear there are so many curlies like me who are looking for their holy grail products! Feel free to drop me a line with any products that you like and want to recommend! I'm always on the lookout for great products!

Shop Update Tomorrow

I will finally have that patchwork bag up in the shop tomorrow! I've been researching, shopping and researching more on fabrics and I keep coming back to my love for fabrics from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, etc. which brings me some fabulous ideas for new upcoming totes - stay tuned! More gathered bags coming soon too in beautiful colors just in time for summer, and they are slightly different than the green ones I have had!

I'm Hoping You Like My Sneak Peeks!

Here is another sneak peek at a new bag I have in the works (among the many others!). I just love all these fabrics together, they are so light and fresh. I am planning on another patchwork bag with a dark denim bottom and straps. So far, I love how it is coming together! I hope you likie! I'll put it up in the shop when it's ready for a new home!

Do You Poo?

Ok, so who here is a curly girl? Are you familiar with terms such as plopping, 3b, boticelli, no poo or acronyms like OneC, BRHG, AO? If you know any of these, chances are you have been to !!

Here is a great introduction to what I mean when I am talking about poo or shall I say NO POO! This routine is based on this book by Lorraine Massey, it's a good read although a little dated now. We are anxiously awaiting a follow up book!

I have had curly hair all my life but just in the last couple of years have I became a total product junkie, trying to find the best products for my hair. The folks over at naturallycurly are awesome -- we share our product trials and tribulations and so when something works great, I definitely have to have it! LOL

Well, if you are a curly girl and haven't been to, head over there and then go to to take a peek at all the amazing products they have to offer-I had no idea there were so many products targeted just for the curly girls! Ever since I have found, I have had in my product arsenal products by DevaCurl. This includes No Poo (a conditioning, no sulfate cleanser), One Condition (the conditioner) and Angell (styling gel) - I absolutely love the smell of these, the no poo has a turkish rose and peppermint smell and the One Condition smells like lemongrass and the Angell is supposed to smell like starfruit -- it is heavenly.

Oh, while I am talking about products, there is another great line for curlies called Jessicurl. She has great products and they smell simply devine -- check out her site at There are also great videos there for those of you who are visual learners!

I am sure I'll be talking more about curls. . .signed, totally obsessed with hair products. :)
