Chloe Bags, Beyond Meat, and Reading

Hey you! Welcome to the style firm! This week I am discussing a few things that I am loving this month. There will be no outfit pic this week because I’m suffering from a mild skin reaction (trying new skincare comes with a price unfortunately) so I am just going to soak my face in aloe vera today and type.

Recently I have been tinkering with the question: if I purchased a high end luxury bag today which one would it be? So I have been narrowing down my favs and considering what brands I love the most. I decided that it would be best for me to purchase a classic item that I predict I will still be in love with for the next 5-10 years instead of a trendy item.

I know this is really hard to predict but if I’m going to spend $1k-$2k I need to at least be close. I love Chanel but honestly the annual price increases terrify me and I know that I am not ready to jump straight into Chanel. I love the brand Saint Laurent also but I have some concerns about whether I will still love it in 5-10 years.

I have been in love with Chloe for a few years now and after seeing more bags from their Faye line I think they might fit the bill. I am currently doing research on the Faye backpack and the Faye Day bag to see which one I will like better but honestly it is a tough decision. They are both equally gorgeous! I love everything from the front flap to the silver and gold hardware to the zippers on each side. I don’t plan on purchasing the bag anytime soon (I don’t even know if I will purchase this year but who knows right?) but stay tuned, check out these pics of both bags and if you are in the market for a chloe bag feel free to shop them below!

After getting a few recommendations from friends on how to “eat like a vegan” I decided to give “faux meat” another chance. I was hearing some really great things about the Beyond Meat brand so a month ago I purchased their grilled chicken strips and geez I am so glad I did.

These strips are literally the closest you can possibly get to eating chicken if you are vegan or vegetarian. I am not vegan but I do enjoy benefiting from a plant based diet. I suffer from migraines as well as stomach issues and I have noticed some major changes in my body due to my change in eating habits. Let’s get back to the chicken strips because I could talk about eating healthy all day.

These strips are made with soy and pea protein isolate, rice flour, canola oil and a few other ingredients. I wouldn’t eat these every single day but I think this is a good option to throw in a few stir frys, veggie bowls, or a pasta dish. I am willing to bet a couple dollars that if I were to blindfold you and you ate this, then you would say that it is chicken. I said what I said! Lol.  

 

Reading 

Since I have started blogging consistently every week I have been looking for ways to make my writing better and find my writing voice. Sometimes I feel like I just cant get the words out the way I want. They say if you want to be a better writer then you need to read more. I have been spending some time here and there at the library looking for writing books and books just for entertainment. I haven’t started on these yet but here are just a few books that caught my eye and I picked up at the library:

 

I love a good psychological thriller. This book seems very fast paced which is what I need right now.

 

 

This book has a weird storyline so I got it based off of curiosity.

 

I’m in my 30s but yes I still read teen fiction. I hope this one is as good as the art on the cover.

 

I looked this book up on Goodreads and I saw that it had good ratings so I will give it a shot and see if it helps me with my writing.
