Fantasy Fashion + Finds Friday for November 29th, 2013

m-diamondCharge! Well, you will need a credit card when purchasing this item, but how handy would it be to have a purse that charges your Smartphone? I was tickled to find out that this concept really does exist, and they are super cute! Never again will your phone die when tucked into this bag.



Now that your phone is charged, let’s head to Frankfurt, Germany and go Christmas shopping! Let’s check out the Christmas markets and take in the holiday spirit!



I know so many of you know of these candles, but for those of you who do not, let us take a moment and talk about Diamond Candles.

Come on… be honest. How many times do you find yourself all dressed up and looking really cute, and as luck would have it, you see no one you know. Whether it be a good hair day, the best outfit ever or even you’re just feeling good and it reflects when you look in the mirror. It’s never easy to take that selfie that depicts exactly what you want it to show. But what if you had a shutter remote to use with your iPhone that allowed you to take photos from up to 30-feet away?! Oh, it exists! And it’s spectacular!

In wanting to try an alternative to the typical Thanksgiving Day food, I dug deep and came up with something in cracker, pretzel and cheese form thanks to a recipe in a 1996 Woman’s World Magazine (many thanks to my Mom for saving everything)! Continue reading

All of the CupcakesI love San Francisco this time of year! It is by far one of my favorite cities to visit, but especially in November. I enjoy having the opportunity to see the gorgeous fall colors and to really feel that fall feeling (you know what I mean- the scents, the vibe and that cozy fall sensation). Here in Ohio, spring and fall often go by too quickly, or are welcomed with fresh snow flakes. Continue reading
