Birthday Haul [365 to 40]

Consistency is key, we are on to day 2 on my 365 days of blogging until my 40 birthday. I had a quiet birthday and treated myself to items, see below.

I like Coach’s style, although not all the designs are my taste. The traditional simple black look of a Coach handbag is simply beautiful. I got the Large City Zip Tote in Black and I love it. It is the perfect size for work and all my needs. I also picked up  East/West Pop Up Pouch Crossbody Bag with Bird Print. This was on a whim and I have received nothing but compliments on it.

COACH Poppy Flower – Fragrance Review

COACH Poppy Flower is fresh, floral and fruity character, which is considered refined and romantic. It top notes include citruses (lemon, lime, orange), ivy, black currant and lychee. Middle notes are jasmine, rose, water lily, peony and sugared raspberries, supported by notes of  amber wood, sandalwood, apricot and musk. Poppy Flower  was launched  in August 2011.

CPFI purchased this on sale from Sephora (no longer available) and I am happy I did. Poppy Flower is perfect for very nice Spring – Summer days.

Birthday Haul 2013 – #2

Round 2 of the birthday haulage.
A Coach wristlet, not exactly one of the two that I wanted but I still love it. It’s small but big enough to hold my Samsung galaxy without any problems.

Nail polish etc. from my recent Ulta haul.

I got some tops from Eloquii, this is my second or third time buying their clothes and I love this online store. It is the plus size arm of the Limited but they recently announced that they maybe phasing it out. Why??!! I don’t know anyone who is not a size 0, should be able to buy great, fashionable, and figure flattering clothes too. I am very disappointed in them.
