The whole team at PurseBlog wishes you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday. May all your wishes come true!

On this Veterans Day, we salute the Veterans and Troops who served and still serve for our country. Welcome home…

When our contact at Rue La La emailed us two weeks ago with the exciting news that they were going to sell an astounding selection of vintage Hermes bags, we immediately knew that it was going to be a good opportunity to take a road trip to Boston and get to know the team, learn about the operation behind Rue La La and get a taste of what the event was going to have in store for us.

As much as the entire fashion world could not stop raving about Fashion’s Night Out, its predecessor day is much more my style. Today is Fashion’s Night In, a day where you sit at your computer and shop. How is that not amazing? Then again it isn’t much different from what I do day-to-day, but that means it is perfectly in my comfort zone and I am already skilled at doing this.

While we just got home from enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day cookout with my family, Vlad and I wanted to take the time to wish all of you a Happy Memorial Day! Memorial Day is a day to remember those that have served and given their lives for their country.

Memorial Day also marks the beginning of summer! We hope you had great weather, great food, and great company while remembering all those who died while in the military service.

We hope you all spent Valentine’s Day with the people you love! For us it is all about being with our sweetie and eating lots of sweets. A very happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at PurseBlog to all of you.

Speaking of Valentine’s Day make sure you read our Tory Burch Valentine’s Day interview and enter our giveaway!

This is our first Valentine’s day as a married couple. Lucky for Vlad I can be won over with flowers, food, and movies. Pretty simple, no? Valentine’s day is a huge Hallmark holiday, filled with obligatory gifts and undue stress. I think people spend more time worrying over Valentine’s Day rather than enjoying it. For me, call my corny, it is just another day to spend with the person I love.

Happy New Year 2010 from PurseBlog

To all of our wonderful PurseBlog readers, we wish you a very Happy New Year 2010. May the new decade bring you health and all that you wish for!

Meaghan, Shannon, Amanda & Vlad
