Chanel Bag How To Score Designer Pieces

About 7 years ago, I received my first classic Chanel handbag. I remember wanting this bag for such a long time – two years to be exact!

So, for one of my birthdays, they got me this handbag. It was so thoughtful of them and it still remains to be my absolute favorite handbag.  Side note, since I got the medium size classic bag, the price has gone up by $1,500.

From the purple lip, to the black lip, to the oranges and pinks of springtime, I love a good statement lip and I think it works for everyone. So one of the lip products I thought I’d review today is the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss.
