Hola, Isabel is the inspiration for today's post. She is wonderful for many reasons, not the least of which being that she and I share the same philosophy on baby boy clothes (i.e., Death to Pooh, long live the pint-sized concert tee). Her post today displayed the contents of her bag and invited others to do the same. After I had a (frankly not all that surprising) droolfest over her beauty products, I decided to play along: Some highlights:
New flip flops -- These were purchased today. Were you aware that Nine West started carrying Havaianas, my absolute favorite flip flops? For I was not. I'm not going to question why, but only revel in their glory, and the surprising ease with which I was able to find a pair of black ones in my size. (Size 7 is always the first to go...SO WHY DON'T THE STORES ANTICIPATE THIS, AND ORDER MORE, THEN?! ARGGGGGHHH!). Ahem.
TOO MANY lip products -- I think I have a problem. I must give a shout-out to my email buddy (and ridiculously talented photographer) Nabbalicious for turning me on to the wonders of Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker, featured below. It gives a perfect hint of shine, has a touch of sheer color, and tastes yummy. Also? It costs like 12 cents (okay, maybe $1.50). I don't care what color your lips are, this WILL look great on you; buy it. While we're on the subject...If you have dark brown eyes, as I do, I heartily recommend the following eyeliners, both in the picture above (next to my all-time favorite mascara)--Marine by Chanel (it's black with a hint of deep blue and moss, which sounds like a mess, but really makes your eyes "pop"), and the significantly cheaper Dark Green (original!) by Prestige. I use the latter verrrrrry sparingly, as too much of it can and will make you look like you work hard for your money, if you know what I mean, and I think that you do. Just a touch, however, will give you a certain je ne se quois. (French for "that which does not make you look like a whore.")
Birthday Invitations -- Toopweets' first birthday is rapidly approaching, hence the pile of outgoing mail. (Hey, anyone have any idea what I should do with the invited children when they actually attend the party? Seriously. I'm scared.)
Red Wallet -- I was pickpocketed a while back, and that wallet was what the douchebag decided to take. It had been a gift from my mother-in-law, and I really loved it, so I was quite sad to see it go. A few weeks later, I received a package in the mail; inside was was my wallet. Everything was missing except for my license (hence how the mysterious angel person was able to return it to me), but it was back all the same. I know I bemoan the hobo situation here with some regularity, but it's things like this that remind me of how much I love
Granola Bar -- Look how prepared I seem! A granola bar, just in case I need a quick snack, right? In actuality, I have literally no idea when this found its way into the black hole of my bag, and it only really serves to illustrate that it's really really time to clean that sucker out.
What about you guys? What's in your bags? Let me know if you post a picture (especially if said picture contains beauty products of any sort).
