So I teamed up with my friend Melanie for a purse organization video and giveaway.  This was so much fun!  How it worked was that we set a budget to shop and put together a beautiful handbag with accessories.  We then each completed a video showcasing the handbag we put together.  We are now going to give both handbags away to two winners in giveaway form.  See our videos below!  Hope you will enjoy and enter!  Nikki
Recently I was sent some items from for the purposes of reviewing and putting together a affordable mini work bag.   If you are not familiar with it is a online store which sells a large variety of items such as electronics, household items, beauty and make-up and more.  All at affordable prices.

One thing that I think is great about is that they have free international shipping!  So no matter where you live in the world they will ship to you for free. is the perfect place for that budget shopper.

Below are all the items that sent to put together this affordable work or school bag.  The entire bag is under $50.00 total.


The Bag:  $19.99         NOTE: There is a color variation between the bag on their website and what actually was received.  You can compare this actual picture to the one on their website to see the difference.  

Faux Crocodile Leather Ipad Case: $8.02

Faux Leather Business Card Holder $.4.02

4GB Faux Leather USB Flash Drive $8.25

Faux Leather Purse Wallet $8.86

Video Review Of The Work bag

Today I made a video on my mobile office on my youtube channel. I wanted to also do this blog post to share with you in more detail where I got many of the items that are a part of my mobile office. For my mobile office I use my Thirty-One utility tote. I got this tote several years ago and it is truly an amazing bag. It is very durable and I just love all of the pockets which allow for awesome organization.

Who could benefit from a mobile office:

-The Soccer Mom

If you are a mom that has that child is in so many activities and you spend a lot of your time sitting at practices then a mobile office is perfect for you. It allows you to work on your things while waiting such as your family menu plans, projects you are working on, your calendar activities.

-The Community Gal

If your involved in several community programs or activities, then having a mobile office is great to keep all of those community committee information all stored in one place and ready for you to grab and go as you need. It also prevents you from having to take up valuable space in your home to try and store anything related to activities outside your home.

-The Church Gal

For that woman that is very involved with her church activities a mobile office is a must. You can set your mobile office up to fit all your sunday school, bible study and church committee things. This way you are never late for Sunday morning service because your trying to locate everything you need for church.

-The Business Gal

If you are one of those gals that have your own home-based business you can definitely benefit from having an office on the go. A mobile office is great for that businesswoman to keep all of her home party catalogs and order sheets. All the supplies needed to do her home shows or to work on her business items. If this sounds like you, then why not check out these favorite office designs from shipping containers and be on your way to owning a portable office,

I have my own business in which many times I go sell my items at a kiosk. So this is the main function for my mobile office. It stores everything I need to complete my business activities on the go.

Received my Glossy Box subscription today.  I must say that I probably will get good use out of the Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil, but at $59.00 a bottle I may only be using this sample :).   Below is my subscription box:

Illamasqua LTD Lip & Eye Pencil

Lierac Gommage Sensoriel

Nume Style Arganics Argan Oil

Perfumies Solid Perfume Stick

Skin & Co Roma Truffle Serum: Hydro-Toning Day Face Serum

Today I received my little black bag subscription in the mail.  It is always so exciting when that box shows up with all my designer goodies :).  Little black bag is a monthly subscription where I pay 49.95 per month and I receive 3 to 4 designer items.  1 Item I choose from their website and then their stylist chooses the other items. I then have  7 days to trade any items that I don’t like with other ladies who subscribe to little black bag.
