The Purse That Showed Up On My Doorstep

November 17, 2011

I’ve gotta tell you friends–
Blogging has it’s perks.
Perks that I never knew existed.
As you may or may not know, I started this blog back in February as an “escape” for my mind.
I needed something to keep me busy–
Something that I would enjoy doing.
How I decided that writing a blog was the answer, I have no clue.
The only thing I’ve ever written was emails.
Really stupid emails at that.
Anyhow, my intentions when starting this blog was to tell NOBODY about it.
The thought of other’s knowing I was doing this whole blogging business made me cringe.
So I wrote…
and kept it a secret.
For a couple of days.
You see, I am the world’s worst secret keeper.
So I accidentally blurted out to my family “I started a blog..!”
and then I accidentally posted it all over Facebook.
{FYI–If you want to keep something kept a secret, don’t talk about it on Facebook}
And then my sister told me she could see me being the next “Pioneer Woman”
At which point, I realized my sister is the most naive person I’ve ever came in contact with.
Anyhow, I am SO beyond glad that I decided to leak this secret.
Because not only have I met some incredible people–
I’ve found something I’m passionate about.
Writing complete nonsense.
It also turns out, that Blogging can result in getting free items from companies.
Not just any item though…
{If that didn’t just convince you to start Blogging, I don’t know what will..}
Anyhow, you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by
to choose a bag and “model” it for them.
Too bad they didn’t realize I am no model, nor do I know how to act like one.
Anyhow–their website blew me out of the freakin’ water.
I drooled.
And then showed my husband a million and two purses.
And then drooled again.
What I’m getting at is you MUST pay them a visit.
Let’s have a little look at what I chose shall we?
{I’m not sure if I adore the outside or inside more…}
I have gotten so many compliments on this bad boy already.

Moral of the story:
I Love Blogging.
Purses Or No Purses.
Preferrably with Purses.
Thank you Handbag Heaven for my beautiful little big bag.
I couldn’t love it more.
…Now go get yourself one.
You totally deserve it.
I said so 🙂
