What Are They Thinking?

When I started selling Miche bags, I was so excited about the product.  And, I still think it's a great product.  However, their business model just doesn't make any sense.  Why would a company, with everything going for it, start selling on the Home Shopping Network, underselling their distributors and sales reps? Now don't get me wrong....I don't care where they sell...but why cut your distributors and sales reps out of the picture?  Is it greed?

I don't know, but I'm not sticking around to find out.  Instead, I've found a new vendor, Shelly Bag.  I love this bag and I know you will too!  Watch for  upcoming posts where I will share with you the benefits of the Shelly Bag.

Until then.....

A Girl Needs to Feel Pretty!

What's black and white and read all over?  The new Hope Miche Shell. 

I needed to get a new set of nails - boy were they looking bad.  Good thing my nail technician, Lisa knows how to make my hands look and feel pretty.  I think every girl/woman needs to feel pretty and a simple trip to the nail salon can change your outlook on life in just one hour.  Everyone notices your hands.  They almost define who you are.  They can say, "now there is someone who cares about her looks!"  Or they can say, "Wow! she doesn't have any time for herself!" 

Going to the nail salon is a great time to socialize and that's why I brought Hope with me today.  As you can see by her cover, she loves to socialize.  She definitely has a lot to say!   She 's all about breast cancer awareness and everytime someone purchases a Hope Shell, Miche Corporate gives $5.00 to Breast Cancer Research.   The best thing about Hope, is that she comes in the Classic Shell (above) and the Big Bag style that you see below.  Hope is $29.95 for the Classic and the Big Bag Shell is $44.00.

Purple is My Color

My name is Ellie.  I come in many colors including this beautiful subtle purple.  The color purple is definitely a hot color right now, so I was the perfect choice to attend the garden club meeting today.  

It was really amazing how many ladies were wearing the color purple.  It reminded me of the coming of Spring with crocus and iris in bloom.

The speaker today was Shirley Remes who is a writer for several magazines and has her own website shirleyremes.com.  Wow! did it make me anxious for Spring to arrive.  She had slides of so many beautiful gardens here in the Midwest.  I got some great new ideas for the yard.  The only problem is the long wait for the ground to warm up and the digging, planting and fun to begin.

A Spa Day!

Deanna and I had a great day at the Spa.  Several ladies at the spa commented on her gorgeous coloring.  I can't agree more.  She has clearly become my favorite Shell of late.... How do I describe her coloring?  Well, it's kind of an olive green with black trim.  The material is very soft to the touch and has sort of a reptile look to it.   A picture just does not do her justice.

I find Deanna's "extra" pockets really handy.  The large one in front is really great for pens that you can never find in the bottom of your purse.  And, the side pockets worked really well for my keys on one side and my cell phone on the other side.  Yep, Deanna has it all....good looks and practicality!

One of the things I really love about Deanna is how lightweight she is.  Hopefully, Miche put all their big bag shells on a diet.  It sure has paid off for Deanna.  She is, like I said, "just gorgeous!" 

So it was a great day at the spa, we met some new people, had a pedicure and a massage and we both walked out feeling great!  If you want to add Deanna to your Miche collection, just visit my website

Deanna is $40.00

Mystery Spot

You know, I could ask my husband fifty times to take out the holiday decorations... in hopes that it will be done sometime after Thanksgiving. Well this year, right after Halloween, I mentioned getting the outdoor decorations out and then forgot about it. On Monday morning, November 9th, I stepped outside and much to my surprise the wreaths and garland were front and center. It struck me funny and I couldn't stop laughing at how insane this was. It's not even Thanksgiving and my outside decorations are up. But, in his defense, I guess I won't be laughing if it really does snow this week. So for now, maybe he is the wiser one!

So this mystery spot is my front yard...Whatever!

The Healing Field

Today I went on my own little field trip to Rotary Hill which is a place in town that we go sledding in the winter and listen to concerts in the summer. This week they've done something new. They have put up 2,009 flags to honor those that have fought for our country. I just had to go and take a look. What a beautiful sight! They call it the Healing Field and as I walked around I saw tags that honored family names and the war(s) they fought in. Some even put on tags for the soldiers that lost their lives last week at Fort Hood. I decided I wanted to buy a flag and honor a few of our family members, both fought in WWII. This was a very moving experience and one that I hope Naperville will continue.
