Another tip for рrеѕеrving уоur fаvоritе designer handbag iѕ tо ѕtоrе it саrеfullу.  Put tissue, оr a purse ѕuрроrtѕ ѕuсh аѕ a рillоw purse ѕhареr, purse shaper, or handbag shaper on the inѕidе tо hеlр рrеѕеrvе thе ѕhаре. Thеn place the bаg inѕidе оf the original duѕt bаg it саmе in. If the оriginаl duѕt bаg is nоt gооd and roomy, don’t wоrrу! Thiѕ problem саn еаѕilу bе ѕоlvеd bу ordering a replacement dust bag available here.  Nеvеr ѕtоrе it in vinуl оr plastic! This will not allow the material to breathe and will trap in mоiѕturе, whiсh could pоtеntiаllу сrеаtе аn еnvirоnmеnt ѕuitаblе for thе grоwth оf mоld. Last but not lеаѕt, nеvеr lеаvе уоur bag hanging on a hook fоr mоrе thаn a few dауѕ. This could wаrр thе shape оf the strap аnd will cause stress on thе stitching. Inѕtеаd, place the рurѕе intо a сubbу оr оntо some ѕhеlf with аmрlе rооm tо аvоid ѕԛuiѕhing.

Don’t over clean it!

Another imроrtаnt tiр is nеvеr tо рlасе уоur designer hаndbаg on thе floor. Everyone knows thаt the grоund iѕ the оffiсiаl mееting рlасе оf germs and аll thingѕ nаѕtу.

Moving on to the outside of leather рurѕеѕ. Thе leather is a precious mаtеriаl thаt iѕ built to last, but еvеn the riсhеѕt fabrics hаvе thеir wеаknеѕѕеѕ. Thе bеѕt thing thаt a fashionista саn dо iѕ tо рurсhаѕе a lеаthеr рrоtесtаnt. It will асt likе a соаt оf аrmоr fоr your most рrizеd роѕѕеѕѕiоn bу fighting everyday wеаr аnd tеаr in аdditiоn to thе rаndоm freak ассidеntѕ thаt inсludе an iсе cream cone or a big рuddlе оf water. To ѕеlесt thе product that will wоrk bеѕt fоr уоur bаg, bring thе purse into thе ѕtоrе аnd have thе аѕѕосiаtе help уоu. Uроn рurсhаѕing, it is imреrаtivе tо fоllоw thе dirесtiоnѕ precisely.

Single Klip Hip Klip

The perfect choice for the person who doesn’t want to have much on them for their run or walk. A single klip hip klip is exactly that, a single klip that attaches to your hip!

Best part: these single klip hip klips are available in a variety of designs so you can find the perfect one to match your workout style. Check out this adorable peace sign hip klip. This hip klip is small enough to not interfere with your running but still able to help you carry your car keys with a fashionable touch.

Double Zipper Hip Klip Pockets

Maybe you have a bit more essentials you plan on taking with you on your walk or run? If that’s the case, we recommend a double zipper hip klip pocket. These hip klip pocket combos make it so you can be completely hands-free on your walk.  This is perfect for if you plan on carrying cash and your phone on you. The double pocket combo makes it so you can have all your essentials with you and have them secure in a hands-free bag!

Just like the single klip hip klip this one, these double zipper hip klips come in a variety of styles. Take for example our golden hibiscus hip klip. Also, if you plan on taking your dog with you on walks, and stuffing the hip klip with dog treats, be sure to check out these paw print hip klips!

Banjees Armband

Need your music to keep you motivated while you run? Then we recommend a Banjee armband as your running buddy! The Banjee has a pocket big enough to securely hold an iPhone, keeping it in the ideal spot to have your music source!

If you prefer to have your banjee, not on your arm, we also have banjee wrist wallets!

No matter what type of banjee you get for your running excursions, you’ll love how convenient it is to carry all your things! Banjees are designed with a form fitting material, so it will securely fit around your arm. Your phone is held safely in place with a sturdy velcro strap.

Ways to Stay Organized Throughout the Year

Goodbye 2016, and hello 2017! Which means it’s that time again…time to make New Year’s resolutions and (attempt to) stick with them!

If you are thinking about being more organized this year, than you are in the right place. Here we outline how to organize three separate areas of your life, so you can find the best New Year’s resolution for your 2017.

Organize Your Closet

Let’s be honest, when’s the last time you wore half the items in your closet? Start the habit of cleaning out your wardrobe on a monthly basis. Make a rule that if you can’t remember the last time you wore an item of clothing….you donate it or throw it out!

By doing this monthly, your wardrobe will stay fresh and it’ll be easier for you to find items in your closet. You might even buy less too, because if you have an organized closet and know you already have 3 pairs of black skinny jeans, you’ll be less likely to pick a pair up on a whim during your next shopping trip. Because you’ll know you don’t need them.

Organize Your Grocery Shopping

Another great idea to help you stay organized is starting to meal plan on a weekly basis. Meal planning and keeping an organized shopping list has many benefits. It keeps you from spending money on going out to eat when you have nothing stocked in your fridge. Planning out meals in advance can also help reinforce healthy habits, such as eating more vegetables and less carbs.

Pinterest has many different grocery and meal planning templates to help you organize effectively. You can check them out here.

Organize Your Purse

Don’t forget to organize your purse in 2017! Your purse is more than a fashion statement, it’s your on-the-go travel companion. So how do you organize your on-the-go essentials in your handbag? We recommend using purse organizer inserts to make your purse easier to find your essential items!purse-organizer

Stay organized throughout the year by adding a purse organizer insert to your favorite handbag. A purse organizer insert helps you keep track of your essentials with specific pockets for your cell phone, sunglasses, wallet, makeup and other items you carry on a daily basis. Purse Organizers come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors. So you can find the perfect one for your favorite handbag!

Whatever your New Year’s resolution might be Purse Bling wishes you a happy (and fashionable) new year!
