Fossil Vintage Revival Handbag Giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fossil. All opinions are 100% mine.

Guys! I am so excited to share this post with you today.  Like, so excited! And guess what, there's a little something in it for one lucky winner. Something worth reading on for... :)
I don't know about you, but I am always looking for a good handbag. One that's good quality, timeless (it has to last), and versatile. Well, if you're in the same boat, look not further! Fossil Vintage Revival Handbags meets all these requirements! 
This collection, which is crafted from hand-burnished Heirloom leather, is inspired by vintage silhouettes and timeless details. A bag that gets better with time. With the new updated fall colors, you can imagine, this collection is fabulous and will certainly be a bag that will last you a lifetime. You know what? My descriptions just don't do it justice. Watch this video with Sydney from The Daybook to see some more!
On top of being timeless, it is versatile. Something that can be worn out on a date or with your girls and easily transitioned to something you can carry around daily.
Need proof? Well, it's your lucky day! I've put together two different looks on Polyvore to show you how I would rock my Vintage revival bag. 

Evening choice

In my evening choice I chose to go with a lace dress that automatically dresses the look up a bit. The Vintage Revival Satchel bag is a perfect fit. As you can see, this bag is classy enough to work with a fancy outfit. This is something I would totally wear out with my hubs or out with the girls!

Daily Wear



Ahh! Aren't you dying for this outfit right now? I need all these things in my closet STAT. Can't you just see Cameron Diaz walking around with this outfit carrying that bag? Love it.

Crafts at Ma Nouvelle Mode

Now we aren't a craft blog, nor do we claim to be.  There are so many blogs out there with women who are crafty beyond my wildest dreams.  As much as I wish I could craft like that and be so resourceful, I can't.  It's just not in my blood.  Know your strengths, ladies, know your strengths!  We have, however, done a few around these parts and today I'd like to share a few!

The first one deserves to be first because, well, it's awesome.  Christie had made these beautiful rustic oversized paper bag flowers and they were a hit.  They were pinned and repinned a bazillion times and Tip Junkie even featured them!  They are easy and cheap but add so much!

Not that much compares to these beautiful flowers, but the next craft is something I did a while back and still have hanging in my home.  It is a decopaughed canvas wall art. Also very easy and relatively cheap, I liked the way it turned out and how it hangs with my photos, the few that I do have.

Well that is all we have for you today.  But don't worry, we have a lot up our sleeves for you in the very near future!  I mean, if we're being entirely honest, there won't be a ton of DIY projects, although I have a few up my sleeve.  I feel like that should be left to the professionals!

Stay tuned, Monday is our relaunch... YAY!!

Recipes at Ma Nouvelle Mode

Food.  Aahhhh food.  How I love thee and loath thee at the same time.  Since I am a lover of good food and cooking, we like to share yummy recipes here for you all to try and love as well.  Some of them are mine but most, I must admit come from the real professionals in the kitchen.  Like Martha Stewart.  She's the best.

But today I am going to share some of my favorites from our recipe archives, I hope you find one or two you can put to good use!

We gotta start with Strawberry pie.  For one, it's delicious. And two: it's strawberry season!!

Our most popular recipe, however, was our creamy potato soup.  With good reason though!  It's fabulous!  You might not need it any time soon with the weather looking so beautiful, but stock this one away for a cold rainy evening.

These white chocolate raspberry cookies are some of my favorites.  And they're pretty too!

We have quite a few more recipes you can browse through in our recipe archives.  You probably won't find anything that isn't easy, fast, and yummy!

Hope your week is treating you great!  We are still hard at work on our relaunch Monday!! Can't wait! :)

Fashion Recap

Okay, so this is kinda embarressing...  I am looking back through our fashion/outfit posts only to see that the last time I posted one was February 10th.  Blogger FAIL.  I am blaming it on the snow and the traveling and the fact that I lost my camera battery charger.  How does that even happen, you might ask? No.clue.

Moving on.

Here are some of our recent looks.  Christie restyled a summer dress to be perfect in the winter.
And I love, love, love these mint green pants she rocked which are so perfect for spring.
My last post I rocked my new favorite shirt/dress that I purchased while in Sweden this year.  I love it.  It is warm and comfy and can be worn with jeans or tights.  It is a perfect European sweater.
I did get to visit Sweden and took some outfit pictures then too.  That was a fun trip!  Makes me want to do more, but I am pretty sure I have maxed out my travel budget this year.  Thanks husband! ;)

You can continue looking through our fashion statements in our archives here.   Hopefully you will find some inspiration of some sort!

Thank you for reading as always, and we hope you come back next week for our big relaunch!  Week long party of giveaways and awesomeness all wrapped up into one!  You're welcome.  :)

Have a great day!

Beauty Tips

Wouldn't it be nice to have all your beauty tips and tricks in one spot?  Well today I am going to highlight some of our favorites here at Ma Nouvelle Mode.  These are tutorials we have done in the past and since Christie and I are preparing for our big relaunch next week, we are recapping a bunch of fun stuff for you this week!  Let's get started!

This first one was a really fun post to do.  We were selected to as a part of Daily Buzz: Style's top 9 for a day to night makeup challenge.  So I did my take on Day to Night makeup ideas.  Here's what I came up with:

Next is one of my favorite makeup posts.  I have recently become obsessed with bold lip colors.  It feels like if I am not wearing a red or a pink, my look is not complete.  Therefore, I had to write a post on How to Wear Bold Lip Colors.  It was featured on The SITS Girls as well!  I had fun with it because I did a little stop-motion video to go a long with it.  I am no professional and do not claim to be, but I thought it was cute, and the French music definitely helped it along!

I also wrote a post back in December about my waxing experience here in France.  It's rather funny, because it's a rather funny experience!  But if you get a chance to read it, make sure you also check out the comments as well, people are hilarious!

That's all for today folks, hope you enjoyed it and have a great day!

We'll be linking up to all the parties here.

Hair Ideas

Happy Monday Everyone!

If you didn't already know, Christie and I are re-launching Ma Nouvelle Mode next week with a new design, move to wordpress, and a whole lot of awesome!  We are really excited to reveal everything to you.  In the meantime, as we are working so hard to prepare, we have decided to take this week off from new posts.  This does not mean that we will be around or even have posts!  We wouldn't want to leave anyone hanging!  So instead we decided to do a little recap of some of our favorite posts in some of the categories we write about.

And what a better way to start a Monday than with hair ideas!  We have done quite a few and they seem to be ever so popular, so in case you missed them or are a new reader or just need a refresher, here are some of our favorites.

No Heat Curls is the most popular so far with over 1,600 views on YouTube.

Our second viewed is my high bun with poof.  I love this one because it is easy to do and cute but you hair is still up and out of your face.

Here is one of my personal favorites, because I love big hair and all, Sarah Jessica Parker big hair.  It's so fun and easy!

This next hairstyle I personally loved.  I did it in Fall, so I called it a fall hairstyle, but really it's perfect whenever!
Here's the video for it:

Last one I will share is more recent and is Christie's first hair tutorial!  I loved it and it has done really well on YouTube as well.  It is how to style loose curls on short hair.  In fact, it got featured over at 30 Handmade Days for most viewed!  Here is the picture:
And here is the video:

Need some more ideas?  We have plenty!  (And SO much more to come!) Take a minute and peruse our hair archives for some more inspiration!

And stay tuned!! Next week is the big relaunch!! :)  Happy Monday!

We are going to be linking up this post to all our link parties here.
