Thank you to OhMyVera reader Sparky who sent me this cute photo of the Vera Bradley bear she has in French Blue. The bear is using a Holiday 95 bag and a Chanticleer mini Paddy bag. All rare and unique Vera Bradley items, so that made me wonder what other rare or unique items everyone has.

Today is the last day to enter the $150 giveaway from Ebates!
So it is the perfect time to blog about the Grand Cosmetic that I ordered online and got cash back because I started at Ebates. Ebates currently has 12% cash back for Ebags.com plus last week some Vera Bradley items were 20% off. Ebags.com always has free shipping on Vera Bradley items. Plus there was no tax.
So here is the rundown: Grand Cosmetic $40 - 20% sale = $32
No tax, free shipping, still $32
I started at Ebates to get 12% cash back = $3.84
Final price $28.16
So if you havent signed up for Ebates, what are you waiting for? They have so many stores that will give you cash back. Some of the stores on Ebates include Vera Bradley, Ebags & QVC. You also get a free $10 gift card when you sign up and make your first $25 purchase!
So go to my giveaway, sign up for Ebates and then enter to win $150!
So now lets get onto the Grand Cosmetic! This bag is huge and I can't wait to use it on a trip. It is 11 ½" x 7 ¾" x 4 ½" with 3 ½" handle drop. It is going to be perfect for holding full size bottles. Also my blow dryer will probably fit in there if I ever have to take it along.
And the zipper opens nice and wide. On one side there are two pockets and the other side has three.

So this release has been a little different, I have been so busy I still havent made it to a Vera Bradley store. I am hoping to maybe go this weekend. So I have done a little shopping online...but not all for the Spring items. The purchases below are in no particular order.
First up is my new Plum Crazy Fringe Scarf! I am in love with this style scarf and think I need all four colors! They were sold out on verabradley.com on the release day, so I headed over to QVC to buy it. It was a little cheaper on QVC, but the shipping made it go back up to about full retail price. But I was able to use Ebates to get cash back and their shipping is super fast! It arrived in two days.
Vera Bradley was on Rue La La's Sunday Styleathon and I picked up a couple things: Twirly Birds Navy Cosmetic Trio and a Hanging Organizer in Night and Day.
Although, after my friend Jill shared this photo of her Grand Cosmetic bag I knew I had to have one. It is so large and will hold so much stuff. So I jumped on Ebags to buy one and it should arrive this week! So I am not sure I need the Hanging Organizer.
Update: Decided I dont need the Hanging Organizer AND Grand Cosmetic so the Hanging Organizer is on ebay. Auction ends Jan 23, 2013. http://www.ebay.com/itm/190785467634
On New Year's Eve Vera Bradley had a sale for an extra 20% off all sale items! I had been eyeing a belt for a while, so I decided to order one. I also needed a new wall calendar for work. The belt ended up being $13.92 and the calendar was $6.72. Pretty good way to start off the New Year!
