My May 2014 Favorites ★


1. Cypress and 5th

Cypress and 5th is a clothing subscription service that allows you to choose clothing from a “Dressing Room” that they open for you each month. The monthly cost is $75.00 for beautiful, high-quality clothing and accessories.

On the 1st of each month Cypress and 5th opens a dressing room for you. You can either choose 1 top/1 bottom/1 accessory or 1 dress/1 accessory and they will reserve it and ship it to you by the 6th of the month. If for some reason you aren’t satisfied with your dressing room for the month just simply send them an email and they will give you and alternative dressing room. If for some reason you cannot afford the items for the month or you can’t find anything you particularly want (which is never because their clothing is stylish and beautiful) you can choose to opt out or skip that month at no cost to you.

I highly recommend Cypress and 5th to any woman looking for a new twist to their wardrobe. If you are lacking in the style department or you just want something new and different, Cypress and 5th is the place for you. The clothing is always beautiful and they manage to always send items that fit just right! Not to mention, the customer service is impeccable! Give them a chance and tell them I sent ya 😉





2.  Hanau Premium Liquor Cakes

This is a company is still campaigning to raise enough money to open a bakery. Their cakes are absolutely delicious. I had the honor of receiving a free sample from them this month and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious and addicting these cakes are! I tried the original Cruzan Rum Cake.

All of their cakes are made with popular liquors such as Jose Cuervo, Jim Beam, and Cruzan. They offer  a variety of flavors like the Jose Cuervo Margarita cake, the Cruzan Rum Banana Cake, and a few more!  These cakes are sent in a reusable tin can. These tins can be reused for many different things such as spare change, jewelry, food bowl, Jello bowl, mini liquor bottles, makeup holder- these are just the ideas I came up with. The options are really endless.

These cakes have a 6 month freshness guarantee and come in beautiful tin cans which make them perfect as gifts! Being that the cakes are less than 5 % alcohol and safe for ANYONE to eat, you can share with the entire family.

I really have faith in this company and I highly suggest that you give them a try! Right now they are offering cake packages at discounted prices for pre order. If you sign up for and Indiegogo account and share their campaign you have the opportunity to win cakes and merchandise to! Please order cakes while you can and help this company make it big! They really deserve it!





Disclosure: These are solely my personal opinions on the products/sites. I was not told to write this review and I would only suggest items that I would purchase myself and that I have 100% faith in! 

Shop Miss A – My new addiction? I think YES.

Shopmissa.com is an awesome new website that sells rings, bracelets, necklaces, nail polish, makeup, and accessories. Here is the kicker- Everything is only $1.00 !! This site is great! In the past month I have purchased about 5 times from them and I have not been disappointed. For only $1.00 the quality of the products is really good. If you are a fan of midi rings like I am, this site has tons of them! Oh and did I mention the shipping for the US is a flat rate of $3.95!

Another great feature of the website is that they release new items almost every day, so it never gets old. They have a limited supply of all of their items so you have to order quickly! I think it’s fun to hurry to get the best items before they sell out. They usually do not reorder stock, so when it’s gone , it’s GONE.

They also have E.L.F products which most of you know are good quality for a low price. The great thing is that they do restock E.L.F products.

So basically, you can’t go wrong with the low price and in style items on shopmissa.com. If you are a fashion/beauty enthusiast like I am, then shopmissa.com is the site for you! I am a bargain shopper and it doesn’t get much better than $1!

What sites do you think have the best bargain prices? Please share the secret bargain sites so I can drool!! **Upcoming Giveaway with some of these products!!*

Thank you for reading! & Happy Shopping!

 Everything was only $1.00!! What do you think?


Little Black Bag Review July 2013

First of all, I would like to explain how Little Black Bag works. You can subscribe to Little Black Bag’s VIP Membership for $10 a month. The VIP membership gives you special discounts and promotions. The great thing is that the $10 goes as a credit on your account and if you choose to skip a month, you can simply do so without any troubles. When you begin your membership with LBB you take a “Style Quiz.” This quiz will help you personal stylist choose what items your bundles will include. Basically, you choose one item and LBB bundles it with 1-2 extra items for a special price. The extra items are mystery items. You do not know what the extra items are until you complete your purchase. Sound risky? No worries, this is where the fun begins. You have 7 days to trade the items you do not want with other members on the site. You can choose to bargain with members through chat or keep to yourself and send trade offers on the items that you want. It is like a game that everyone wins in the end! It’s wonderfully addicting.

Being that this is my first blog post for Little Black Bag, I will be posting pictures from some of my previous hauls. The pictures I am posting now are not the best because I did not have my camera handy. These were all taken on my iPhone.  Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

FYI: You can click on the brand name or on the item name and it will link you to the product on the Little Black Bag site.

Brand: Street Level/ Based in LA, Street Level creates bags that are edgy, trendy, stylish, and highly functional at affordable prices. Street Level bags have the look of a designer bag, but without the designer price tag.

Description: Street Level Two Lock Satchel/ Classy and fabulous come to mind when you see this blue two-lock satchel from Street Level. The inside and outside pockets combined with the faux leather of this satchel make it the perfect summer satchel. Use it day or night, it is the perfect bag for anytime!

SIZE: 17″ L x 7″ W x 11.5″ H
MATERIAL: Faux leather
•6.5″ drop
•52″ detachable strap
•Zip closure
•Inside pockets
•Outside pocket
•Gold hardware

Retail Value: $88

My Opinion: I love this bag. It is a great size. It doesn’t look too big on a small gal like me (5ft) but it is deep enough to hold just about anything. I even carried my laptop in it a time or two. When you have a large load, the adjustable strap makes for a comfy wear. Not only is the bag comfortable and convenient, it is really pretty. The blue is wonderful and the inside pattern makes it a little edgy. This is definitely one of my favorite bags.

Quality Vs. Price: I would say this is a great quality for the price. I would definitely buy again. It was this bag that made me fall in love with the brand.

Brand: Penny Sue

Description: Sand Aruba Woven Tote/ Let your personality shine through at the office with a gorgeous tote from Penny Sue! This sand woven tote is shiny and fun with glitter woven into the fabric, yet conservative enough for meetings or lunches with clients!

SIZE: 14″ L x 5″ W x 9″ H
MATERIAL: Faux leather
•10″ drop
•Zip closure
•Inside pockets
•Outside pocket
•Silver hardware
•Triple compartment
•Woven Glitter Detail

Retail Value: $110

My Opinion: I did NOT like this bag. I actually returned it. The material felt very cheap to me. Because of the “Woven Glitter Detail” it looks to cheap in real life. It is a shiny, smooth (too smooth) material. I traded high for this bag and was really disappointed when I received it. I do love the cheetah pattern on the inside, but that wasn’t enough for me to keep it. It seemed as if the faux leather would peel off or scratch easily.

Quality Vs. Price: Since I did not like the purse, I think it is very overpriced and makes me worry about the brand itself.

Brand: Nila Anthony

Description: Pyramid Stud Crossbody/ This Nila Anthony studded bag lets you unleash your inner rebel.

COLOR: Red and Black
SIZE: 11.5″ L x 2.75″ W x 7.25
MATERIAL: Faux leather
•46″ detachable strap
•Foldover snap closure
•Inside pockets

Retail Value: $66

My Opinion:I really loved this bag. It was larger than I expected, but I was happy with the size. Nila Anthony is one of my favorite designers. All of her bags have a great unique design on the inside. The bag is very edgy and sexy. Then again, I am always a sucker for red and black!

Quality Vs. Price: The price is great for the quality of item that you receive.



Brand: Carol Dauplais

Description 1: Double Link Stone Drop Earrings/ These one-of-a-kind coral double link stone drop earrings from Carol Dauplaise are a great addition to both your daytime and nighttime outfits! Wear with a LBD or with a simple cardigan for various looks. Sleek and sophisticated, these Carol Dauplaise earrings are eye-catching and are a definite conversation starter!

COLOR: Coral
SIZE: 1.5″ L x .75″ W
MATERIAL: Steel/Glass/Plastic
•Fish hook backs
Retail Value: $18
Description 2: Multi Circle Pendant Choker Necklace/ This multi color circle pendant choker from Carol Dauplaise is a definite statement piece! Make this necklace really pop when you pair it with neutral colors. This Carol Dauplaise choker is a simple yet noticeable addition to any outfit!
COLOR: Multi
SIZE: 5″ D
MATERIAL: Glass/Metal/Plastic
•Pendant 2″ D
•Latch closure
Retail Value: $24

My Opinion of Both: First of all, I didn’t like the necklace. I didn’t pay attention when I shipped it and didn’t realize that it was a choker. When I put it on, the pendant made it look way too big for my small frame. It was kind of ugly actually. The earrings, I love. They aren’t too heavy and are a nice style. I am very pleased with them.

Quality Vs. Price: The price for both of the items is good for the quality.
