The Birkin…

the MUST HAVE bag for every wealthy fashionista. Carrying a price tag of up to $150,000 & also that infamous waitlist the average Joe’s only chance to see this bag is in a magazine.

Esty shop owner of Agabag, Agnieszka Biernacka, has created a fully functional “Lego Birkin” which was her tribute to  the Hermés Birkin bag at a much affordable price tag . For $400 you can choice your own colors and silhouette for your own Birkin-inspired bag made from LEGOS which was created to stand everyday use.  Is $400  still too expensive? Check out her Esty shop – she makes LEGO clutches and jewelry that retail for under $200.

I LOVE this month’s box. Some of the highlights for me would be:

1. RentTheRunway.com $50 credit – I love the concept of Rent The Runway and have often browsed their site in hopes to rent something fabulous for an event but never have so this credit gives me more motivation to do so.

2. Emily’s Chocolate Peppermint Holiday Fortunes… no explanation needed, I’m a female & it’s chocolate.

3. ModelCo’s Shine Ultra Lip Gloss – This was my full size product and it is valued at $16.00 which makes my $10 Birchbox subscription total worth it! The color is called Striptease and it is sheer. The application is so smooth and as a lip gloss freak that is something I really appreciate and look for in an everyday lip product. There’s a built-in mirror for very easy on-the-go application.

I also received deluxe sample sizes of Amika’s Nourishing Mask, Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream and Juicy Couture perfume.

I suggest everyone who loves monthly surprises and Beauty products to try it out for at least one month & I’m sure you will fall in love! If not – you can cancel at anytime.

This week I decide to go with a simple pink manicure with accents on the ring finger. I love accent nails because they can really make a simple manicure POP and stand out. I started out chosing my colors and ended up picking 2 different pinks from the brand: Sinful Colors Pro. Sinful can be purchased at most drug stores such as CVS and Walgreens as well your local Target. I love this brand for various reasons – for starters, each bottle is $1.99 and the quality is up there with some of your other drugstore favorites that start at $7.99. This brand also offers a wide variety of colors and finishes. I also included a glitter polish by Sally Hansen.

Pink Forever: Accent Color

Strobe Light: Accent Color

For this look I also used Perfect Tip strips by Nailene.

I started off with my basic Sally Hansen top coat and then I placed one of the Perfect Tip strips across both my ring fingers. I then painted all my nails with Cream Pink and the ring finger half Cream Pink and half Pink Forever. After 2 coats I removed the Perfect Tip tape. The Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear has a thinner brush so it was perfect to brush a few coats of the glitter in between the two polishes on the ring finger. I completed the look by adding one coat of Sally Hansen ‘s Insta-Dri Anti-Chip top coat and cleaning up around my cuticles with nail polish remover.

Here was the finished look:
