What better way to unwind after a long day of final exams than to go shopping? I know. It’s hard to beat. I headed downtown to the Botkier Sample Sale to celebrate another year of college successfully finished.

It truly is Sample Sale time! Just for PurseBlog and PurseForum members, Botkier is inviting you to their special Friends and Family night. Meaning you are invited before everyone else is, that is how much Botkier loves you all!

My current obsession is the hot pink Botkier Venice Hobo. Not only is it designed with supple lambskin, but it also rocks a pop of hot pink color. The Ad campaign photo is one of my favorites, simple yet striking.

Spring is around the corner and we have a sneak peak at the Botkier Spring 2010 collection! In October we sat down with Monica to see what was in store for us from Botkier. On top of that, we were finalizing our amazing PurseBlog + Botkier Limited Edition Handbag.

Hobo or Satchel: Which style do you prefer? That ultimately depends on how you like to wear your handbags. Many of you loved the Botkier Venice Hobo, as did the entire PurseBlog team, and now we will bring you information on the fraternal sister of the the bag.

Botkier bags have been a longtime favorite of the Purse Blog team. There is a category for them on Purse Blog savvy which they so deserve but I still want to talk about them on Purse Blog sometimes as well.

Spring not only means flowers and warmer weather, but it means Sample Sale season is here! Designers will be emptying out amazing items for prices that are beyond amazingly low. Up next this week is the Botkier Sample Sale, offering between 50-70% off handbags, shoes and wallets.

Friday, oh glorious Friday. I pretty much love everything about Fridays. I love looking back and reflecting on the week, thinking about what I might do over the weekend and of course knowing that I will have some time to kick back and relax.

Do any of you remember when “trolls” were all the rage? I would guess this was about 15 years ago or so, but needless to say, almost every girl I knew had their own troll collection.
