Ascending Butterfly's 'Spring Into Bags' Special Feature sponsored by:

As I'm sure I've already mentioned, this Spring, color will be hot in handbags (think 'brights' like yellows, kelly greens etc) and studded bags in honor of the 'Rocker Chick' inspired runway looks we saw at New York Fashion Week. The best way to apply runway style trends to our day-to-day lives lies in the accessories. None of us can show up at work with a head-to-toe look straight off the runway, but we can rock a great bag!

For Spring 2010, Ascending Butterfly will be hosting a special feature called 'Spring Into Bags' we are going to be reviewing and giving away hot handbags from 'IT' bag designers! Fasten your seatbelts fellow bag lovers you are in for an awesome ride! Can you believe we are already featuring the second bag? We are hurtling into Spring! We are just days away from the official start of Spring, and we have already had to Spring ahead! Is it me, or is 2010 just flying by super fast?

We are now one day away from St. Patrick's Day! You can see an article I wrote about the 'wearing of the green' called "St. Patricks Day 2010 – Get Charmed!" HERE

Will you be wearing a touch of green this St. Patty's Day? I will! And no, I won't be wearing a green sweater or a goofy hat, I'm going to incorporate the green my favorite way, with the accesories. I'm definitely whipping out the Claddagh Jewelry, and in addition, I will be sporting a very hip, very trendy, very spring 2010 'au currant' handbag, Linea Pelle's Dylan Medium Tote in 'Kelly Green' of course!

I haven't put this bag down since I received it! It's absolutely fantastic in every way! It is the right size for me, not too big, and definitely not too small. I'm a road warrior and my bags need to keep the pace with my busy NYC lifestyle, and I am happy to report that Linea Pelle's Dylan Medium Tote definitely gets two thumbs up. And that's only because I don't have more thumbs to give it! (And in the heart of  NYC if I wave my two thumbs around, someone might try to snatch my  Dylan and run!) Dylan and me will be at the St. Patty's Day Parade tomorrow.

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a NING group with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!
