The Newest Blogger……

Hi there! I’m Jen and the newest blogger to the group. I live in St. Louis MO and from the Midwest. I have lived other places such as San Antonio, NYC, and Norfolk CT. But seem to keep coming back to the Midwest. I graduated from Webster University with a BA in Communications and have been working at Luxco Spirited Brands for the past 7 years. The main brands we market are Pearl Vodka, St. Brendan’s Irish Cream, and El Mayor Tequila. It’s quite fun here at Luxco! On the side I am building my own freelance business with all Social Media/Marketing/PR/and Event Coordinating for nonprofit and small business owners. 
I live in the Central West End it’s near so many great places I love! Forest Park, Pizza Pi, North West Coffee, Starbucks, and boutiques. I am the mother of two beautiful Chihuahua’s I rescued from a puppy mill Renny and Lola. They love long walks, french-fries and pizza.
When I am not slaving away I love spending my time with the love of my life Brett and of course all my friends and family. My fave past times are juicing, yoga, bikram, traveling, movies, dog park, hanging at coffee joints, taking walks, and reading. 

 I am excited to start this journey of blogging! XOXO

Vintage fashion (and more!) with @shopbellabag

Cassandra Connors, founder of Bella Bag, gives a fashionista the opportunity to upgrade their current style with top vintage designer bags at more affordable prices. Connors has years of experience in genuine-only luxury goods, including brands such as Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, etc. At Bella Bag, you can buy, sell, and trade authentic luxury bags and accessories.

Her online shop offers many pieces, and here is a focus on the vintage Chanel 2.55 original handbag:

  • Created in February of 1955
  • The bag takes its name from the year of its birth
  • It is commonly mistaken for the more modern Chanel Classic Flap bag
  • Features a worn classic quilt, double flap interior, the mademoiselle turn lock closure, and a classic chain strap
  • It is a rare and classic piece that can only be found in consignment shops like Bella Bag
  • Made from silk, lambskin, calfskin or fur, in a combination of colors
  • Based on the quilted coats worn by boys at the race track, as Coco Chanel’s designs were influenced by her love of horse racing.
  • Used a running stitch, quilting the bag in a diamond or herringbone pattern
  • The double chain is said to be based on Chanel’s experiences as a child, in an orphanage, where the caretakers would dangle keys from their waist
  • The classic flap bag features a CC turn lock closure, a single flap interior, crisper leather, and a chain strap interwoven with leather.

You can trade in your old, gently worn handbags for a different, vintage designer style and will also be able to find rare and hard to find bags.

Connors and The Bella Bag Team also have an authentication process. They believe that every woman’s perfect ensemble should include carrying an authentic accessory.

V Magic @SweetBeeMagic

With the massive popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, the power of the V is finally getting its day. Coincidentally, a recently launched product, V Magic by Medicine Mama’s Apothecary, is the first to market with a vaginal beauty cream that heals and rejuvenates your most sacred skin.  The cream can also be used as a sexual lubricant and is edible but not condom compatible.

This vaginal beauty cream is comprised of 100% natural ingredients.  Medicine Mama’s Apothecary combines Sea Buckthorn oil with gentle, healing bee hive ingredients and plants based oils such as olive, avocado and honey to create a revolutionary, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial feminine care product with enriched collagen repair properties.

I have been using this soothing, nourishing, luxurious cream on my mosquito bites, my feet, sunburns, elbows and hands even. You can really use it anywhere but it is gentle enough to use down there. You can even but a bit between your thighs for these hot sticky summer days. So amazing for post shaving/waxing and a MUST have in every bathroom.

V Magic is designed to:

·           Soothe irritated skin and rashes associated with waxing and shaving

·           Aide in recovery from cosmetic surgery and after giving birth

·           Safely be used daily as a moisturizer and lubricant providing nourishment and rejuvenation

·           Aid in the alleviation of symptoms such as itching, burning, soreness, dryness and tenderness associated with vaginal imbalance

Available at natural retailers nationwide and online via, $24.95/2oz.
