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…

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:
