In the Bag: Everything LEB

We're so excited to have Everything LEB as our February In the Bag! A 20 something decor loving, Boston girl( we'll forgive her for loving the Red Sox!) her blog is a must read as she decorates the apartment she lives in with her boyfriend


I love this series on your blog. I am a totally nosey person when it comes to things like this and I love seeing what other people carry as their essentials everyday. I am so flattered that you girls would ask me to be part of this and check out whats in my back. I have tried to get rid of stuff but I just cant seem to get rid of anything I carry- it all seems to be needed, the 20 lip glosses and all.



My bag is just an inexpensive one I picked up from Ann Taylor Loft. I think its kinda ugly but I ride the train to and from work and my bag ends up on the floor often. Gross I know but that's why its an inexpensive one so I'm not too attached to it. I keep my nice bags for the weekends or times when I know it wont end up on the train floor


Here is what's in my bag (left to right)

Bills- If I dont keep them in my bag I will totally forget to pay them. I am in the process of getting them all online but there are a few that apparently dont change things even when I call them 100 times to tell them to stop sending me a paper one.

Kate Spade Planner- this still needs updating, I dont have a 2010 calender in there yet but hopefully soon. I do have a notes part that gets alot of use though, I like to write everything down.

Wallet- since I balance my checkbook like a crazy person I like to carry it with me, hence the large wallet to hold everything.

Hand Sanitizer, Zicam, and 4 lip gloss things.

Prada T pass holder- When I first got my job that required me to take the T to work I bought this to hold my pass.

Sunglasses- never know when its going to be sunny out.

Kate Space pencil bag- I have my "lady things" in there...hey you asked to see everything in my bag

Gum- I love my gum

Pocket Mirror- who wants to walk around with something in their teeth.

Gloves- its really cold lately, so I'm always prepared.

Keys- being locked out would be no fun.


So there you have it, I hope you all liked seeing what I carry around with me all the time. Thank you again to Danielle and Sara for asking me to be a part of this fun series!!

31 things about dating

"23. No boyfriend-girlfriend relationship starts with a 1 a.m. booty text."

My friend sent me this in an email...I think they are pretty good points at any age.

Bookworm

There is nothing I love more than summer days by the beach or pool, with a good book. My favorite summer reads are the "chick lit" genre, books you don't take too seriously, can probably figure out the ending, and the perfect amount of empowerment, romance, and climbing the corporate ladder(always in some fabulous PR or Fashion job) I also can't resist a good comic autobiography that make you laugh so hard you cry.

Here are some books I already have pre-ordered off amazon:


I CANNOT wait to hear about all of Carrie's college adventures

Her other works, something borrowed and something blue are must reads


Chelsea Handler has lived the funniest life ever. Don't have someone read her stories out loud while you are driving..not that I've done that and almost drove off the freeway
Warning: Tucker Max books aren't for everyone. They're offensive, rauchy, and often illegal.
But I love them.

And for those of us who can never be without our favorite book, these darling Kate Spade clutches

Julianne Moore


I love Julianne Moore, I think she is stunning, so when I saw her Bulgari's 2010 Eccentric Charism campaign, I had to share.

...I wish I could pull of her hair color.

Occasionally she dreams of Italy...

Some days I get really nostalgic for my days when I got to travel around Italy. I've been very fortunate to be able to go a few times, but I think my favorite had to be when I was studying Christian Art in Jan 2007.

One of the best months of my life

Chilling with the Pope
Fitting in the sights while shopping in Milan


Nights out with my roomates(yes, I am carrying around a bottle of wine. when in Rome..)
Visiting the Trevi Fountain when my parents came to visit
Gorg day trips to Genoa(this was during a summer trip)
classes at the Collesium
a touching 9-11 tribute in Venice
Long dinners with lots and lots of wine
and dancing the night away in discos

Happy Friday: Look of the Week

Happy Friday dolls!
My life would be complete if I owned this chevron dior number. Only 4,800 dollars. In that case, I'll take two.


also, I(Danielle) opened an ebay account to sell my old designer duds that have been sitting in the closet. Check it out..my motto is get rid of it..so prices are cheap...there are even some j. crew pieces with tags still on!

What are you ladies up to this weekend..I'm off to staples center in my favorite cowboy boots to see Brad Paisley!

Dream Office

I am just obsessed with these images from inside the SPANX offices. If my office looked like this, I would rush to work every day. What a creative space for making a product that has allowed women all over the world to get into those form fitting dresses without and bumps and lumps(I seriously do not want to think of a world without this product)

Yum.

My roomie and I will be making these sometime this week. I'll be sure to post pics, and let you know how they turn out.

Two Nights, Three Looks

As I mentioned last week, I am heading to Vegas the first weekend of March, and I can't wait--I'm seriously having Vegas withdrawals. Below are three dresses I bought for the trip (which is only two nights-it's always good to have options right?) which I have accessorized with items I already own. I reused the shoes to save room in my suitcase for anything I may buy while I'm there.

Look one:



Look two:



Look three:

A Little Wisdom from Kelly Cutrone

In honor of fashion week starting this week, I thought I'd share some wisdom I came across on Logan's blog that Kelly Cutrone emailed her employees a month back and Whitney Port posted on her twitter

There are some great life lessons in here that we could all use!

- Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
- Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
- Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
- When you say, 'I love you ,' mean it.
- When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.
- Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
- Believe in love at first sight.
- Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
- Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
- In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
- Don't judge people by their relatives.
- Talk slowly but think quickly.
- When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'
- Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
- Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.
- When you lose, don't lose the lesson !
- Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
- Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship..
- When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
- Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice..
- Spend some time alone.


Also, we're excited to announce the winner of our pretty chic SF notebook giveaway.
