What’s In My Bag


I know I know…this whole ‘what’s in my bag’ is not a unique concept, but every single time I come across it on someone’s blog or in a magazine, I’m completely engrossed in it. What is it about being nosy and wanting to see what other people carry in their bags?! I finally decided to do one on my lil ol blog. Besides the obvious (phone, keys, snacks), below you’ll find what’s typically in my bag on any given day.


1. Mini notebook for jotting down notes and ideas throughout the day 2. Sunglasses (not exact, but somewhat similar) because, well, duh 3. I’m constantly losing hair ties even when they are on my wrist, so I always keep an extra in my bag 4. Purell…I LOVE Purell. I hate this scent you see pictured, but I keep forgetting to buy a different one so I’m stuck using the ocean’s mist or whatever it’s called for the time being 5. I do love chewing gum, but lately I’m more into Listerine strips so I’m not chomping down while chatting with people 6. Countless times I’ve found myself with a split nail and I’ll regret not having a nail file in tow, so now I always keep one in my bag


7. I don’t like carrying around my big camera with me because it’s rather bulky, so I always make sure to have this little guy for when I want to take pictures or film something on the go 8. I recently got this Stephanie Johnson cosmetics case and I just LOVE it. I think it’s the perfect size for all my lady essentials. 9. Tweezers because well, you just never know (and, uh, who else sometimes tweezes their eyebrows while in the car because that natural light is just glorious!) 10. No one wants chapped lips ,and this Kiehl’s lip balm is my favorite 11. It’s always good to have lip gloss on hand to touch up and I’m totally loving this Elizabeth Arden one these days 12. Just like no one wants chapped lips, no one wants dry hands, so Jergens is my go to, and how cute is this mini one? 13. Tampon because, again, you just never know.

Line to Love: Pam & Gela


The other day I did a little shopping at Cakewalk Style Shop. Two of the items I got were a Pam & Gela shirt and these Pam & Gela leather track pants. Omg I can’t even talk about the leather track pants, I get so excited thinking about wearing them. Maybe I’m late to the [Read more]

Nice People


Last week I was checking out at Bed, Bath & Beyond and while the lady checking me out was extremely nice, the customer behind me was not. I will admit; I had a lot of items and because I was doing a lot of registry swap outs and whatnot, it did take longer than the normal [Read more]

Stacks of Books


I have come to realize I have far too many stacks of books in our loft. It’s not just fashion designer coffee table books (although I do love those and you will find them throughout our place), but it’s all sorts of books. Picture books, novels, books I’ve never even heard of but just just [Read more]

Bed Head

Casper 1

I don’t know about you, but when I wake up in the morning, my hair is far from perfect. In fact, it’s extremely unperfect. I used to always shower in the a.m. (don’t get ahead of yourself, that doesn’t mean I would wash my hair every morning…heck I’d be lucky if I washed it twice a week.

Thoughts From My Desk: Life is What You Make It


Last night I had dinner with a couple girlfriends, and when I got home Matthew and I were both craving something sweet. So, we went to the ice cream shop down the street from our loft (I got birthday cake flavor with Sno-Caps..so good..don’t tell my trainer), and then we walked around our ‘town’ hand [Read more]

Line to Love: RIFLE PAPER Co.


My love for paper products, specifically stationery and greeting cards, is not normal. I know I’ve talked about it on FPTP before, but lately it’s gotten out of control. I spend far too much time scouring the internet for these items. Some have an addiction to shoes and others to paper (me!). Don’t get me [Read more]
