It’s May! Step away from the May Pole, Roundup Readers, it’s time to see what our PurseForum family has been up to this week.
Colorful reveals caught our eye in Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton this week, and we dropped into Beauty and Makeup to check in on the fabulous gift exchanges. All this and more awaits, so get comfortable and join us!
Annilynedr also had a quick reveal of some pre-loved items perfect for spring, and lacedwithlove shared her new bag, wallet, and bracelet in a very pretty first reveal. Please drop into her thread to see the beautiful family photos!
PursePassionLV picked up something from Paris this week, and included a picture of the Louis Vuitton Paris Flagship store, or “Mother Ship” as we like to call it. There have been lots of additions to the “What’s in Your LV” thread in April, so if you are looking for ideas on organizing your bag, or thinking a small leather good (SLG) purchase may be in your future, you will definitely want to visit this fast-moving thread.
On our way out, we found a bracelet reveal from merc_g that we wanted to share. We dont often see these on PurseForum, and this one was so stylish we thought you would enjoy a peek.
In Body-Mind-Wellness, our Health and Fitness subforum has been very busy. We welcomed Precious_UK who has begun an amazing fitness journey, and is receiving lots of support and encouragement. Our threads for Weight Watchers, The PF Running Club, and the always busy Fitness Support conversation are all buzzing as members look to one another to ease off those pesky plateaus and motivation lapses.
Fashionable mommies and mommies-to-be gather in Pregnancy and Parenting to discuss everything from teething to Trying To Concieve (TTC) to teething, and this week we found out that surprised mommy-to-be anglarry04 is having a… well, on second thought visit this thread to find out.
If you are a PurseForum member, you will be able to visit our Relationships and Family subforum, where we have lots to say on every imaginable relationship issue. If you need a laugh, the Worst Date Ever thread should be a required stop!
We love makeup. And clearly we are not alone. Beauty and Makeup is a huge destination on the PurseForum, and its subforums (Make-up, Nail Care, and The Beauty Bar), like most, are places where friendships begin. In the Beauty Bar, this month’s Beauty Product Swap Boxes, and Random Act of Kindness (RAOK) events are in full swing. We love to check in on these gifting events, which are a constant feature in the Beauty Bar.
The Beauty Swap Box is in Round Eleven (!!) and we peeked in for a status check there and in the RAOK thread, where we found some tantalizing gift selections.
And, if you need some ideas for Mother’s Day or an upcoming purchase for yourself, April’s hauls in the Recent Beauty Purchases will give you plenty of inspiration.
In Nail Care, another exchange box is making the rounds, and the Easter Bunny Swap reveal tops the charts this week, too. We also visited the Nail Art thread, and found some really cute manicures for spring, including this ladybug themed nail art from *NYC Princess*.
Balenciaga fans are helping Tanasiluv with an important decision: her first Balenciaga purchase. These kinds of threads always provide lots of valuable input whether you are on the verge of a purchase or just thinking ahead. Members who have made their choice but are either still saving or waiting for a delivery gather in the Waiting Room, which is also peppered with beautiful reveals when the wait is over!
Slc9 revealed her first Balenciaga this week, and selected a black City to start her collection, and ElainePG went an entirely different direction and selected a sunny yellow City for her April purchase.
DearestGirl went an entirely different direction and got three bags! We found another sunny yellow bag reveal from petuniaperiwink, but she still has some uncertainties about her new bag, so feel free to weigh in here.
We know the color and bag choices for any brand can be overwhelming, and if you are scratching your head over all the Balenciaga colors and styles, drop by the Reference Library for help.
We made a couple of quick stops around the forum to see what caught our eye, and found izzue’s charming umbrella reveal in Goyard. Also in Goyard, members are discussing a customer service situation that is proving to be quite an interesting conversation. (Oh, and don’t miss izzue’s wonderful luggage piece, too.)
Another quick stop, this time in the Bag Showcase subforum led us on a happy adventure in PurseholicMY’s Collection Thread, where we found this brilliant fuschia Bayswater among a treasure trove of more fabulous bags. If you haven’t visited the Bag Showcase, head over at your earliest convenience for stories and photographs of incredible bags and collections. That gorgeous bag is a perfect way to end our first Roundup of May.
We wish you all a wonderful weekend, and send our thoughts and prayers out to all who are affected by severe weather in Oklahoma and Texas and surrounding states. We hope you all have a safe and happy week ahead, and look forward to sharing another PurseForum Roundup with you next week.
Thank you for sharing your Friday with us!
