What's in my bag?

J'adore June is just past the halfway point and it has been a blast and a half thus far.  To kick off yesterday, you know Monday, Sundays' bitchy sister, the topic asked what's in my bag...

Which got me thinking, I can pretty much surmise what's in my bag any given day as:
a)Professional
b)Pretty
c)Otherwise Fabulous

Allow me to elaborate...

Professional:
-My beloved planner from Target.  I believe in social media and the tech part of life, however nothing beats pen to paper planning and organizing.

-Business cards all day; for both my social media business services and for my baking business with my two gal pals.  Never throw away a business card!

-I'm a writer so I always pack a pen or ten.  Even with a cute, smaller clutch I throw one in my bag. In day to day, I carry my stack in an adorable little case.

Pretty: 
-My cutesy Clinique makeup bag that is full of life's daily essentials:
-lots of lip lip stuff
-floss
-face powder to freshen up with
-chamomile deliciousness
-not shown but always with me: cherry cough drops, Advil and bobby pins.
Essentials people.

Otherwise Fabulous:
-The bag itself lands here.  Kate Spade has my spade heart for life

-LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls sunnies...I got them for such an amazing deal that it's worth some extra detail.  I got two pairs, one black and gray and the ones you see in the pic.  I paid around $10 for the two pairs combined(!!!) because of them being on sale, plus I had a coupon.  Let me tell you, that equated to around 85% savings.  So yea, in the fabulous column they go.

-I love my teal/tortoise frame glasses for my ever so unique prescription; I am far sighted in one eye and near in the other. If that isn't fab, well I don't know what is my friends.


There we have it, a glimpse at what's in my bag on any given day.  Spill it (not on the floor-I hate that!), what's in yours?

Until we meet again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
