Isabella Fiore's eclectic handbags toe the line between funky and fabulous, attracting celebrities fans such as Reese Witherspoon. One of the label's latest creations is the Isabella Fiore Folktale Fantasy Trina Large Hobo Bag, which combines a patchwork design reminiscent of a soccer ball with a folksy, colorful pattern that calls to mind some bucolic Scandinavian village. But despite the slightly old-fashioned feel, this bag is also very modern, with sturdy, supple black leather, brushed gold hardware, and a cute charm-laden accent. This handbag really isn't as hip as Fiore's other designs, but I really love the color combinations. What about you guys: Do you love it or hate it? Tell me below! You can buy the bag for $625 here.

This weekend, I told you about my unfortunate experience with Freeze 24/7's lip-plumping lip gloss, which made my lips burn, puff up, and turn red. Thankfully, I've just found another lip-plumping product that involves a much more pleasant experience.
Unlike most lip plumpers, which use peppery ingredients to make your lips swell up immediately, Lorac Lotsa Lip Plumping Lipstick goes for a more gradual effect by stimulating collagen production and keeping your lips moist and rich. According to Lorac, users experienced up to a 40 percent increase in lip volume and a 30 percent reduction in fine lines after about a month of treatment. I've been using this stuff for a few weeks now, and while I can't say my lips look noticeably plumper, they are definitely smoother and almost look as if they've been fluffed like a pillow. Plus, the lusciously creamy lipstick doesn't dry out my lips, so it's giving me a new appreciation for lipstick lately. I particularly like the newest shade, a pearlescent pink called Feelin, but you can buy it in eight shades here for $18.50.
