Unwrapped Sweets

Have you ever wondered what’s really at the center of a tootsie pop? I recently licked my way to the chewy center and discovered an extra sweet surprise… a sexy handbag by Ecoist! Who knew that the sugary sweets we vow to give up every New Year actually have a dual purpose?!

Ecoist is a relatively new eco-conscious company that specializes in designing unique gifts and accessories. Their products are made from recycled materials such as candy wrappers, food packages, soda labels and more. In addition to using sustainable products, Ecoist is committed to planting one tree for every handbag sold! With the help of Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization, trees have been planted all around the world in areas that have been devastated by industrial development, natural disasters, and other causes.

So peel off those wrappers now and start munching. Who knows, that Sugar Daddy wrapper of yours may end up in Ecoist’s next handbag?! Don’t worry about that sugar high either…you can use that extra energy to surf what’s hot on their site at

While you’re there browsing, check out one of my favorite picks -- The OC. This luxurious handbag is the perfect emerald gem to make any outfit pop. It’s sturdy, strong and water resistant. A necessity for any city girl looking to have a night out on the town.

Stay tuned to see what to pair these fabulous bags with!
