Great Bag Co. A Robert Verdi Project

Way back when.. just as we hung up our Croft Public Relations shingle and started to represent small, upcoming Fashion Designers we became good friends with Robert Verdi. Robert would swing by our office to check in on our clients and see what he could borrow for his styling jobs.  Sometimes he would bring us a delicious home made apple pie and that would be our lunch (and dinner!) while we worked like crazy to get our little company off its feet. Fast forward many years and Robert, a celebrity stylist, entrepreneur and a celebrity in his own right, has never lost his fabulous smile and trademark sunglasses atop his head.  So who better to bring us gals a great bag?!?

Cheeky Mats

Out in the burbs we can take our curb appeal very seriously and I think it would be really fun to step up to one of these mats at a beautifully landscaped and decorated home.  I would have a good laugh while I waited for my host(ess) to answer the front door.  The last one is my favorite and I wish it was still available...

Put a Ring on it

When I got engaged, Lisa, one of my best friends, gave me a Waterford Ring Holder and to this day, eighteen year later, I put my rings on it ever day.  I have it in my bathroom on a mirrored tray with my favorite perfume and a personalized mug that I use for my makeup brushes. I think of Lisa when I use it and I love having a safe place to stash my rings when I am cleaning up.

I have been looking for another dish for the kitchen, so when I am washing dishes and mucking around I can put my rings in a safe spot and know where to find them (another problem with getting older is forgetting where you put something!)  Look at the fun ring holders I found... I love elephants and that may be the one for me...

Metallic Storage

Right before school begins, we start going through our boys closets and drawers, we get them to try everything on and then shop for what they need.  It is the most painful process ever! Sound familiar?  The only thing that gets me through it is knowing we will have purged, organized and everything will be put in its place...even if it only stays that way for a few days.  The clean up doesn't stop in the boys rooms, but spreads to the other rooms that have been neglected over a Summer of comings and goings. We use a lot of baskets and bins for storing and organizing the clutter (more like hiding the mess!)  So ever since I spied these great metallic bins, I have been thinking about where I could use them...

I like nothing better than a simple t with a great pair of leather pants...well... maybe a pair of jeans is more my style and figure.  These t's are a perfect pairing for Fall and while you are on their site, check out the other clean, simple luxe designs.  Gorgeous!

Best Beauty Product

This Summer when we went on vacation I left my hair dryer behind and brought along my new secret weapon to style my hair. When I applied it to my wet hair and allowed it to air dry, it smoothed and tamed the frizz, leaving me with a shiny, soft and beach friendly wave. As an added benefit it creates a barrier seal to protect your hair from the sun, salt water and blowing winds.  I know you are dying to know what I am talking about.. right??!!?  I have been using the Hask Monoi Nourishing Shine Oil.  At first I thought it was a sample because it is a tiny bottle that fits in the palm of my hand, but that is the way it comes.  It holds up to 20 uses and costs $2.49. Yes, you read that right... it is two dollars and forty nine cents.  I used it on my hair wet or dry with great results. I have also applied it before blow drying my hair and it cut the drying time in half and my hair stayed frizz free longer. Whats not to love?  It is the perfect size to slip into your gym or travel bag and your hair will love you back when you use it!
