Fiona Paxton necklace

I recently saw this hot necklace on Halle Berry, which she wore during an interview on NBC’s Nightly News to discuss her work with the Jenesse Center – a shelter for domestic violence victims.

This stunning necklace is from a designer called Fiona Paxton. It's a hand-beaded metal patterned necklace with swags of fine chain references the ancient patterns of east and west, interlocking to create statement costume jewelry that is both modern and contemporary. This picture shows it in oxidized silver but it also comes in gold and light silver. In this economy it is a little pricey at $300, but the holidays are coming and you deserve a nice little present from your significant other. It's available at

Steve Madden has some fabulosity coming your way for Spring 2010. I got a sneak peak of the upcoming line, which includes all your favorite flats and sky-high heels in fun fabrics, colors and embellishments.

Stand tall in Trezure, a platform strappy heel featuring turquoise, yellow, coral and red tribal embellishment, or stay grounded in Tirah, a boy-meets-girl round-toe brogue in white with basket weave leather work.

Make sure to also look out for twisted, woven, braided,
buckled and strapped-leather sandals in bright colors; peeptoe ankel boots in treated leathers featuring studs, laces, straps and zippers, and wedges in neutral colors in a combination of textures.

Shoes drop in stores between January and March.

Nothing was more embarrassing than the time I was looking for something in my handbag and a big old pad fell out in public onto the floor. I’m sure some of you ladies can relate! Well, I’m here to tell you about a cool new product that was sent to me for review called Moxie. It is a feminine hygiene product company based in Australia, which recently launched here in the U.S at Duane Reade and

Moxie is quite impressive. Not only is the packaging exquisite but also the product itself is excellent. The pad actually sticks and stays on, which for me is a rare occasion when that happens.

The pads come in cute 1930's-esque candy-striped 'boudoir boxes' as well as a reusable and recyclable tin to hold the pads. No more worrying about pads coming out of their wrappers or falling out of your purse. Just carry this supercute tin and no one even knows what it is inside!!

Moxie is available in four different styles including: Slenders Pads (regular size pad), Sleepovers Pads (longer pad for overnight use), Slenders Panty Liners (for light days), and Scanty Panty Liners (everyday use between periods). Prices range from $4.99 to $6.49.

WWHOW! website

I recently came across a pretty cool website that I wanted to share with you. It's called WWHOW! or What did you pay, Where did you pay and How much did you pay. Basically, you put in your zip code and the type of product that you're looking for, and if there is a deal to be had a list will pop up.

For example, I've been looking for a new stroller for my daughter so I did a search in NYC and Albee's comes up with multiple sales on baby items and a Quinny stroller for 50% off!!!!

I invite you to check it out as well by clicking here. I hope you find some great deals in your area. Happy shopping!!!

Eco-friendly bags from b.b. begonia

I recently came back from Lavallette, NJ, a wonderful, relaxing, family-oriented beach town next to Seaside Heights (Jersey Shore). It was my first vacation with my beautiful little girl, Sophia who will be 10 months next week. Since this was my first trip to the beach with my baby it also meant more things to bring to the beach, which is where my new b.b. begonia bags came in handy.

I first came across these bags from an event I attended in NYC. Not only are the bags reusable and eco-friendly but they come in cool prints and colors.
I used my b.b. begonia bag as a makeshift diaper bag to go to and from the beach instead of having to take my cumbersome diaper bag. It worked well because these bags are really light and the straps are great because they are nice and long and feel comfortable on the shoulder. The bags are also waterproof, which is perfect for going to the beach and/or pool.

If you're in the market for a reusable bag I definitely recommend buying one from b.b. begonia. The bags retail for $9 each and can be found at
