I was recently treated to checkout the latest goodies from Clarins.  After being won over by their double serum.  It's good man, pricey maybe? but it's a good investment.  I mean it's your face, and you have that forever.  Beyond that we learned about a whole new slew of items just in time for spring break, to get you into that summer glow.  Since i'm already a bit tan all year long, I didn't try the golden booster, but...

You may have noticed that Club Monaco has recently moved locations in the Galleria, from across the Macy's and the water fountain, to what was previously known as Dylan's Candy Bar.  The candy may be gone, but the new flagship Club Monaco is so much sweeter in my eyes.

  There's something a little bit sexy about a sleek finish.  That's exactly how I feel about the slew of minimalist bags that have been out since last fall.  They just ooze class, and there's just so many options in all price ranges right now.  While studs, and sequins have been all the rage, if you're in the mood for something a bit more simple, and clean, pick up one of these.  From super modern, to retro, what with...
