Friday Favorites: Clutches and Purses

Placing this week’s focus on my favorite accessory: purses. The total accompaniment for a gal: your outfit is never complete without one. Growing up, I always had a thing for purses.

What I’m Watching on Netflix

Poppin’ the popcorn, propping my pillows and turning on Netflix. Now that my mat leave is in full swing, I’m getting comfy by watching my all-time faves. I’m best known for my serial-television-and-film-viewings. Once I get hooked on a series or a movie, I’ll watch it on repeat. Most people are surprised when they see that I never really get tired of…
