June Favorites (Best Office Bag EVER!)

Rachel's June Favorites Round-Up

I don’t always post a favorites blog every month… but when I do it’s full of fabulous finds! (LOL I couldn’t resist the meme reference!). Today’s round-up is comprised of 6 products I’ve been telling everyone about lately because they are almost too good to be true, but aren’t! I always trust bloggers who actually buy and use products themselves over simply rounding up photos of things just for the commission. While I’m all about making commissions, that’s now why I blog — so if I haven’t actually tried something, but I post a link to it on my blog or social media, I will always explain WHY! I hope you enjoy learning about my June favorites as much as I have enjoyed using them!

DIY Valentino Inspired Jeweled Mini Bag Tutorial

Have you noticed the sudden popularity of embellished / structured mini bags? According to the runway shows for this season it looks like big handbags are out and I’m certainly not complaining… But finding that perfect mini bag has been basically impossible for me. Ideally I’d love to add one of these jeweled Valentino minis to my collection but they’re crazy pricey not to mention sold out pretty much everywhere.
