After browsing around the Jolica website and making the difficult decision of just one item to review I finally settled on one of their gorgeous handbags.

Since I am pretty much restricted to diaper bags at the moment and very rarely ever carry a purse I choIMG_7465se this handbag because I knew my mom would absolutely love it.  It is a nice large handbag measuring 14 1/2” by 12” by 4 1/2” making it big enough to carry everything and anything she could ever need.  I remember when I was a little one thinking my mom’s purse was magic because she always had snacks and other fun things inside.  My daughter’s have followed in my foot steps except now nanny’s magic purses contain candy and toys – yup, she loves sugaring them up – and this one is big enough to fit enough sweets in to put the kiddos into a sugar coma, just kidding!  The combination of red and gold tapestry along with the black leather is absolutely gorgeous.  I love the different textures against each other and I have always loved the smell of real leather.  A few other things I love about this bag include that the straps are long enough to carry on the shoulder and the zipper closure that keeps everything inside and out of sight.

And that is just one of many handbags available at Jolica.  There are many more to choose from plus earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, ring, scarves, wallets, and more.  I’m sure if you browse around the Jolica website you’ll soon have a list of items you would love to have or that would make great gifts for those closest to you.  And guess what?  One lucky reader is going to win a $50 gift card to spend on the Jolica website.  All you have to do is enter by filling out the Rafflecopter entry form below.  Good luck!

      Glad the revisions are coming on well, Rebecca. I definitely think taking a break is a good thing to do – after a break sometimes something I have been going round in circles on seems a lot clearer and takes less time to sort out (writing and otherwise too!) x

    • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
