It’s the end of the Celebrate Spring: Fashion & Giveaway Series, and I’m really happy to say that the sun is out right this minute and being all shiny, which is awesome!  Tonight 3 out of the 4 contests in this series will end, so get your entries in right now if you want to win with eLUXE, Addition Elle, and Just Fab!

We still have the better part of a week left with the Softsoap Skin is In™ giveaway, and I’m loving how the Battle of the Body Wash is going down, so don’t forget to VOTE & WIN!  Also remember, if you’re wanting to pick up something pretty, the eShakti promo code is good until the 30th of April!

For our final celebration post, I’m going to introduce another little shopping secret of mine: Little Black Bag.

I love them for statement pieces.  Like a fab ring that is sure to be one of a kind at your next garden party…

Little Black Bag: Panda Ring


Or a pair of Betsey Johnson sunglasses for your next trip downtown:

Or that everyday bit of flare with a ViaNova Bangle Cuff Watch:

(That is, if your sister doesn’t steal it from ya first! Hmph…)

The really cool bit is that when I had purchased each of these items, I was given a few extras.  Sometimes it was makeup, other times other pieces of jewellery, but they’re all valuable pieces that have found their way into rotation.

Here’s a cute video on how it all works!

I have to admit, I’m kinda addicted to the trading!  I’m not always 100% satisfied in what I receive in my initial stylist pics, but that’s actually the way I like it, lol. It means that I can go into the swap room and find stuff that I do like.  There is always someone there that is ready to trade with you, until you have an entirely awesome package.

Like, is based on a monthly membership, but since I’ve last made a purchase just a week ago they’ve changed the rules a bit.  I still think they’re a worthy place to shop for those pieces that make an entire ensemble fit, but I can no longer say with 100% certainty of how awesome the VIP membership service is.  It’s at least 80% with chances of still being 100%, but I haven’t tried it with the new set of rules.  Go check it out for yourself though!

Here are my picks of what you can find today!  These shoes?  There’s only five pairs remaining as of this post!
