Handbag Wishlist March 2016

If you know me well enough, then you will know I am a ‘bag woman’. I am happy to splurge away on high quality handbags as opposed to shoes. I think most women usually favour one over the other, so some spend on shoes more than they spend on bags, and a good number of women I know also pay the same attention to shoes and bags, and spend the same amount, happily shopping for both, lol. Whatever rocks your boat right?

I am currently lusting after some gorgeous arm candies I have spotted online. I spend an insane amount of time online, lusting after various pieces and accessories online, dreaming of when I would have an unlimited budget and be able to buy whatever I want, when I want, but for now, I will happily drool over these handbags, and grab them as soon as I can.

Come drool with me:


Armani Jeans Eco Saff Black Medium Tote Bag

I have had my eye on this handbag for some months now. I like the size, and the minimal design, and I am in need of more black bags so I may be grabbing this arm candy very soon. It currently goes for £115, so it is quite affordable, for me anyway.


Lauren Ralph Lauren Bainbridge Navy Large Tote Bag

I adore navy blue, so I am usually drawn to anything in that colour. This bag would be an amazing casual bag to own. It would look amazing with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans, or a denim dress. I have some many outfits centered around this handbag, and at £99 only, I will be looking into getting this handbag as soon as my bank balance allows.


Love Moschino Superquilt Black Flapover Shoulder Bag

This Moschino Flapover bag is the perfect shoulder bag. Great for events, dinner dates, and when you want to look formal/’all dressed up’. I recently fell in love with shoulder bags as I find them very easy to just throw over with juggling two toddlers currently going through the terrible twos stage. Shoulder bags make it very easy for me to look stylish and have my hands free to grab them, best of both worlds right? This beauty currently costs £145.


Michael Kors Cynthia Blue Tote Bag

When it comes to handbag, Michael Kors is easily the Boss, and this powder blue handbag confirms it. This beauty is currently the Queen of my heart. I love the shade of blue, so cool and the design is so amazing. This arm candy will fit right into my wardrobe. I see myself grabbing this handbag easily. You can get this for £285.


Ted Baker Sienna Black Large Tote Bag

Good things come to those who wait they say, so I will be waiting patiently to bring this Ted Baker Sienna tote bag home. I love the cute bow design, and it is another black bag so this will easily fill the gab in my bag collection. It goes for £269.

Beauty Muse: Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie’s most applauded persona must be that of the successful actress valued for her talent and her edge. Yet, Florence Nightingale Angelina is also the Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Angelina Jolie
Angelina is a Hollywood powerhouse, juggling her roles and business and wielding the system in her favor with, passion, and commitment. She is also the mother of six adorable children. With all the hassle these roles imply, Angelina is always a stunningly beautiful presence. That’s why she’s this week’s beauty muse on Fashion and Style Police. It might be Angelina’s simple, down-to-earth style that keeps her look fresh and crisp. Think about it: she seems to be running her life on fast-forward. Nonetheless, she doesn’t break a sweat. At least not publicly. That’s one of the reasons why she’s an inspiration to women around the world and a constant challenge to herself. Angelina wants to push boundaries, discover her limits and inspire the world.
In this organized chaos, the beauty muse doesn’t particularly have the time for frivolities. She’s seldom spotted wearing make-up. With the exception of mascara and light eyeshadow, she rarely displays any other carefully constructed make-up. As for her attire, despite the tone of luxurious items, Angelina never goes over the top. Her outfits are clean, simply cut, without extravagant accessories. She rarely wears any other jewelry than her pearls.
While pleading for the cause of women in war in front of the United Nations Security Council, Angelina wore her signature earrings: the pearl studs.
She wears pearl studs at movie premieres, while attending high-level conferences, during outings with her children, and even her beloved simple pearl studs at her wedding.
Angelina’s collection of pearl jewellery is quite impressive. In addition to her many pearl stud earrings, she has been seen rocking pearl drop earrings, pearl necklaces, and pearl pendants. These tiny pieces of organic splendor may lend the beauty muse their luminosity. Nonetheless, she surely lends these jewelry items a personal style that is difficult to ignore.
Since her acting debut, all throughout the 90s and until now, Angelina has remained stunningly beautiful. Her impeccable look and style didn’t change much. She’s sold-out to natural beauty and simplicity, occasionally paired with some outstanding accessory that only enhances her beauty. I bet that at least some of these ideas would please Angelina too.
AJ was the wild child of the 1990s. Directors working with her at the time remember her attitude and the fascination it exerted over them. Not much has changed except for the fact that Angelina is now married to Brad Pitt and is the loving mother of six children. The personal struggle with cancer also reformed her forties.

Angelina Jolie is indeed a beauty muse. Not only is she one of the most attractive women in the world, but also one of the most active women on the global scene. She travels to states that are traversing crises, she supports people, she negotiates at high level and she’s the master of genuine, heartfelt communication.
Angelina plays out her personal life in such a way that it always turns in her favor. She sold her first pictures of Shiloh to magazines without allowing them the time to spread gossip on her family. Knox and Vivienne photos followed in 2008. All the money went to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
The same strength and with that typically characterize Jolie’s movie roles also play out in real life. Between acting, satisfying her fans, taking care of her family and being the Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina supervises the activities of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation funding clinics and schools in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Kenya and is active in a number of other foundations dealing with defining programs, wildlife conservation and environmental issues, immigrant children and cancer research.
Throughout all these, she maintains a flawless complexion, radiant at any time. Angelina may be naturally gifted, yet there are three cornerstones to her beauty. Taking care of her skin is of utmost importance. As disclosed by Angelina, a person is beautiful when their skin looks healthy and radiant. Her porcelain white skin is always protected by SPF sun lotions.

The trademark of this glowing star is the no make-up look. With the exception of some events and when on-screen, Angelina doesn’t wear make-up. Natural beauty is supposed to be…natural, not obtained by ‘tricks’.
When she does wear make-up, Angelina is careful about the balance. Remember a time when she was spotted with dark lip colors? Neither do I. The darkest color on Angelina’s lips is a deep red. Otherwise, she chooses rosy and peachy tones that would complement the deep green of her eyes to perfection. The smoky eyes looks also fits her perfectly and she’s made it her own personal touch.
Angelina is a powerhouse. The well-rounded, restless and witty woman is nothing short of a beauty muse and an inspiration for women around the world.
