Check out this really fun, cute jewelry from Flirties! They sent me some jewelry from their Spring 2011 and Summer 2011, it goes great with the Vera Bradley colors! They make Vera Bradley color coordinated necklaces, bracelets and earrings! I wore a couple of pieces to work and got a lot of compliments. The necklace I wore matches perfectly with Deco Daisy. I also took a set of bracelets with me since I was carrying my Folkloric Get Carried Away Tote. The colors coordinated so well, now I will have to pick up sets to go with all my favorite Veras!
Here are the necklaces in English Meadow, Deco Daisy, Watercolor & Viva La Vera!
Me sporting the Viva La Vera Necklace! Excuse the boring background, we didnt have many options at work :)
Here are the sets of bracelets!! Look how amazing they go with the Veras! The colors look great! Folkloric was my favorite, but you know which one really surprised me?? Lemon Parfait! I havent really been into that color, but the bracelets look great with it and made me give Lemon Parfait a second look.
Here is a picture of me and the Folkloric Get Carried Away Tote and the Firties bracelets!
Here is a close up of the bracelets - two bauble and two pearl bracelets
Earrings too! Normally they would match...this is just so you can see all of the colors

This week is turning out to be all about my readers! Sarah emailed these pictures of the All In One Wristlet that she has. At first look it is just a normal Symphony in Hue All In One Wristlet, but if you look a little closer, it has a Versailles strap! In the second picture you can see that the whole side panel is Versailles. It is kind of a fun little mix up. Sarah doesn't seem to mind it either. It is kind of like an unintentional patchwork bag :)

Stephanie one of my readers sent me some pictures last month of a cake that she made. She had emailed me asking about another Vera Bradley cake that I had posted on my blog before. She was looking for a purple cake. Her cake turned out really cute! I love the Baroque print! I hope that someday I have an occasion that calls for a fancy cake and that the cake is Vera Bradley themed! :) She even made coordinating cupcakes! This is really making me want a cupcake!
If you could have a Vera Bradley cake which pattern would you want?

So one of my readers (Beverly) emailed in and asked about the difference between the Pleated Tote and the Get Carried Away Tote so that she could pick one to use for school. Luckily I have both, so instead of just replying to her, I thought that I would share it with all of you.
The GCA is filled with my work laptop, a clipboard, a bag of random stuff, a shirt, packs of gum and a few other random things. The PT is filled with my laptop, two magazines, water bottle, small cosmetic with my GPS in it, wristlet filled with random stuff, my sunglass case and Turn Lock Wallet.
I dont think that this picture does the size difference any justice. The GCA is much bigger than the PT. GCA dimensions are 18.25 x 15.5 x 7.5 and the PT dimensions are 14.75 x 14 x5.25.
Here is the side by side view so that you can see how wide and tall they are.
I decided to take a picture in the mirror so you could get a better idea of the size when you have them on your shoulder.
In the end I think that the Pleated Tote is a better choice depending on how much stuff you carry. The Get Carried Away might be too big. What bag do you use for school or work?

We had a baby shower last week at work for one of the women who is obviously having a baby pretty soon. We had a potluck brunch which was really yummy. I kind of failed because I forgot until the last minute that I signed up to bring a fruit salad and all that I had in my fridge was two pints of blueberries. It worked though.
As an activity we decorated onesies. I am not the most crafty person, so I wasnt sure what I was going to do on mine, but then someone pointed out the obvious that I should do a Vera Bradley design. I was a little hesitant because she doesnt know if she is having a boy or a girl (it is going to be a surprise) but when she said that she doesnt really care about matching the babies clothes to their gender I decided to go for it. I had my camera case (a Raspberry Fizz Tech Case) on the table with me, so I used it as inspiration and went to town on my onesie. I like the way it turned out! Not too bad if I say so myself :) And they were super easy. We just used fabric pens to write on the shirts. I am surprised that this was the first baby shower I have been to where this was an activity. Next time I host a baby shower we will definitely be doing this!
