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…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
