I LOVE DYLAN!! && No I'm not talking 90210!!

I can't verbally explain my love for a nice quality handbag!! Smooshy, smelly, soft leather makes me go insane...Okay, I'm putting a 100 on a 99 ....but it's true. I love a nice leather handbag, that doesn't necessarily have monograms plastered all on it....I let the hardware & leather speak for itself!! 

Meet Dylan, my handbag of the day.  I discovered Linea Pelle about 3 years ago from The Purse Forum, and it was love at first site!! I have a few bags by LP but this is my absolute FAVORITE! Dylan Zipe Tote.

Mine is in a green color that discontinued, but they brought back the black!!

Here are some celeb photos of Dylan in action!

Do you own a LP? If so which one? Also, have you been to any of their sample sales? Curious to know how they're!!

Have You Ever Been in Love?

I love this song by Talib Kweli...It's about a guy that's been a playa forever but he met that special someone that made him want to settle down. Is this fairytale? Does real love like this happen to men? Can it just hit them in the face one day? I don't know. I'm such a hopeless romantic that I'm a believer. I love the Lyrics...Pay homage to LOVE baby!!
Check out this video..Kinda long because they made it into a little story!

You looked good when I tried you on
So I had to write a song
Use to be the guy that always made her cry when I'm gone
Always kept a stable and I never spent a night alone
no cable or no hard line phone why
I'm never home scared of commitment
Ready to forever roam
We at war like sister souljah and she welcome to my terror dome
Head strong our connection proved them haters dead wrong
From now to R.I.P. Proceeds my name up on the headstone
Leave her be for five minutes
Dudes try to dive in it first
They want to spit on my name and tarnish my image
I tell them do you I don't care who she speaking with
Because I already know she made it clear who she leaving with
And it feels so beautiful
Put it in a rhyme because it feel so musical
Plus you ain't no groupie hoe
Sitting in the studio
Before we do this though there something that you should know.....

I don't care what people say
As long as you and me okay
Because I never been in love before
See I use to be a player and
All of this is new to me
And this ain't what I'm used to see
Because I never been in love before

Prime this, Prime that....

Yes, we all know that primers have been on a raise for quite some time..but honestly, I never used them. The only primer I owned was by Mary Kay, I think I purchased it 3 years ago && used it twice!

So of course I went tot he go-to spot for some reviews & ideas on some that work well. I wanted to try two, one for lids & one for face. Here is what I came up w/ && what I think....

1. Stay don't Stray by Benefit: I opted to try this one first because it had pretty decent reviews. 530 reviews w/ 4 stars, PLUS it was only $24.  In addition what really sealed the deal was the slight color to it, it almost acts like a concealer. I give this product 3.5 stars. I mostly like it because it use it as a concealer and it works great because it STAYS. However, as far the eye shadow creases, I'd say it lasts about 3 hours.

What is your favorite Eye Primer? Please do share..

Prime Time by Bare Escentuals: I decided to try this because Sephora was selling a .5 oz tube for $6 bucks which was a great deal because 1 oz is $21. Roughly $5 cheaper in price. I've only worn it twice. Made my face feel really smooth, no tacky feel, but didn't make my foundation last any longer or make my pores appear any smaller. However, when I first put my make up on, it was flawless however it didn't hold the glow. I give it a 2.5. I'll report back if I end up feeling any differently later. I really wanted to love this because of it's natural minerals!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer! LOVES IT!!! So smooth silky, does the  job! Love it. Almost prefect reveiws on Sephora.  Best of Sephora winner 2008!! DING!

I also purchased this R&R primer, that retails for $46 but you know I didn't pay that...try $3 w/ coupon codes, etc. BUT, I can't get it to pump!! ON their website, it states.." it's like a fine wine that needs to be corked"...**scratching head confused** did they REALLY just use that analogy? wow. Well guess what R&R, it doesn't work! I know how to cork fine wine but do I need to go pay a corkage fee?? LOL
