Layla Copeland Review

If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I love handbags almost as much as I love my jewelry. I love myself a great clutch that can transition from running day to day errands to being able to shine at night.


Layla Copeland is a great clutch designer that also specializes in prints and clothing but she is best known for her great handbags. She designs great clutches that while they have a simple and streamlined form pack a huge punch with the types of fabrics that she uses.



Her clutches are great for casual elegance and I love the fact that the bags are not too fancy that they will only last one season. They are timeless bags that adds bold stylings to any look.


I love the fact that Layla Copeland clutches are bright and bold! Layla is not afraid to inject colour and unique fabric patterns into her clutches and bags because she knows that is what will truly capture someone's eye.



Layla is so sweet to work with and she also can do custom designs and can even create a whole set of clutches that would work perfectly as bridesmaid's gifts!

My Review:

For my review Layla was so kind to send me over an amazing clutch from Layla Copeland in order to conduct an in depth review


I was sent the amazing Eva Clutch which has an amazing circular dot pattern that is in a bright pink yellow and red! This clutch is perfect to dress up a casual outfit or as a great compliment for more dressy clothing.


The inside of the bag has a great pink interior that nicely compliments the exterior of the bag. The bag is made up of 100% cotton material.


The bag's interior also features a great little pocket that is perfect to store your id or credit cards or even some cash.


I was surprised at just how much this clutch was able to carry! I was able to fit in a bunch of lip glosses including a bulky Kiehls and eos lip balm, my phone, earrings and other items as well. I guess this is due to the fact that this clutch can expand to 4"!

I love how the bag fits nicely in my hand or if I need to have my hands free it also can comfortably be tucked under your arm. The clutch is nice and light so that you don't have to feel like you are lugging around weights everytime you carry it.

If you love the great clutches from Layla Copeland as much as I do you will be happy to hear that we will be having a great giveaway of one of her clutches soon!

Hello! Skinny Jeans Review


If you are like me then you suffer from what I like to call "What my Momma forgot to give me" basically I have no junk in the old trunk! Besides the pain of having to sit for long periods of time without enough natural cushioning it's pure torture trying to find jeans that actually fit and doesn't make me look like I have a bum made of melting wax and that is why I live in skinny jeans!

Hello! Skinny Jeans is literally the perfect jeans company for me because they specialize in skinny jeans! They offer an amazing selection five different inseams to choose from as well as different sizes to ensure that even if you a shortie like me you will still find a jean that fits well.



Each pair of Hello! Skinny Jeans is cut, sewn and washed right in Los Angeles to ensure that each jean is perfect. Hello! Skinny Jeans was designed specifically to make jeans more flattering as well as slimming.


The secret to Hello! Skinny Jeans is the fact that they are made from classic denim but with a high nylon/elastane content. This denim is exclusive to Hello! Skinny Jeans. This gives them a ‘beefy’ strength to hold you in and creates ‘Memory’—it sucks everything in and never sags, bags or grows by the end of the day. (You will not have to wash them every time you wear them!)



I also love that they come in a huge range of colors! Colored denim is such a huge trend at the moment and it's so great to see that Hello! Skinny Jeans has embraced color with giving their customers a huge range of colors to choose from!

Hello! Skinny Jeans has been featured in so many awesome publications including: InStyle, People Style Watch, Glamor and Oprah Magazine and has also been featured in such shows as: The Tyra Banks Show and the Today Show.

My Review:


I was so happy when Hello! Skinny Jeans contacted me and asked me if I was interested in doing a review and giveaway with them! I can never turn down a great skinny jean!


I was sent the NiteWash Barely Bootcut which is their classic, slimming jean in an ultra-dark, ultra-strength stretch denim. The NiteWash was designed to make everyone's legs look longer and slimmer.


I really love the look of these jeans and they are the perfect fit. While they are a bit long it's fine because the dark wash makes these the perfect going out jeans which means I would be wearing it with heels! But when I'm not wearing it with heels I tuck them into my flats.


I love the boost that these jeans give to my bum! I mean you can see that I actually have one (albeit small) but hey at least it's there! I love how the denim hugs my legs and they actually manage to not look so droopy on my skinny legs.

I also like the fact that they are not so crazy when it comes to washes and hardware. They keep it simple and keep the focus on the jeans itself. So that the great quality denim can shine through and that the focus can be on how good you look in the jeans.

If you love Hello! Skinny Jeans as much as I do you will be so happy to know that there will be a giveaway coming up soon!

Eden Fantasys Review

Warning this post contains Adult Material. If you are not of the age of majority in your country please do not read any further!

Looking for a fun way to spice up your love life but don't want to go to a seedy store scared to be seen looking at certain products?? Well what if you could browse through thousands of products in the safety and comfort of your own home? If that sounds like a great idea to you, you definitely should check out Eden Fantasys!!



Eden Fantasys is a online store dedicated to providing the most hip and state of the art adult toys to spice up your love life or enhance it if it's spicy enough. This is a perfect set up because you can order from the comfort of your own home with maximum privacy! They also have an extensive selection of sexy lingerie ranging from corsets all the way to your basic bra and panty set. I also love how they offer such a great range of sizes from small all the way to extra large! So no matter your size you can still find some sexy lingerie!If you love sensual massage they also have many products and kits targeted toward making one heck of a memorable massage.

They also have a great selection of fun and sexy costumes that would be perfect for everyday fun. They even have Christmas inspired costumes for an extra special Christmas gift!

They also have a great online forum where you can go to discuss the latest news and discover great new products! I love how Eden Fantasys has a great feature where there are reviews done by actual customers so that you can get an in depth insight into the different products offered. I think that's a great idea for internet retailers because sometimes customers may be reluctant to purchase something without being able to see the item beforehand, but customer reviews can really give you better insight into whether or not the product is right for you or not.

I picked up a lot of great items from Eden Fantasys and I will be doing a review of them for you guys soon! =) So watch out for that!

I am so happy to be a part of the Eden Fantasys Ambassador Program because I get to do reviews and share it with you guys! Many thanks goes out to Eden Fantasys and their delightful rep Jenn!!
