I’ve been keeping my bag fairly light for the last weeks of spring. The bag itself is one of my favorites from Cole Haan. I hemmed and hawed about getting it for a while but I’ve had not one regret. It’s light, spacious and very well made.  I’ve had people come up to me while wearing it just to feel the weaving. 

Beauty wise I’ve been drawn to bright nails and lips. What else is new right?  Scent wise my Le Labo perfumes have been the ones I reach for the most. How cute are those rollerballs I got as a gift with purchase from Nordstrom? 

I have about six books checked out from the library. The plan is to make a dent in them over the holiday weekend while poolside or at the beach. Then again who am I kidding? I might just stay in bed and avoid the holiday weekend crowds. 

What’s in your bag lately?

    Like you I have a few staples I carry around and I do *try* to keep it light but it usually gets pretty heavy (umbrella, reusable shopping bag etc.). I really like your weave bag and your style is so chic and organised that I'm thinking you maybe a secret minimalist. I love how you carry 2 reds (snap I have wine sinner). Those Le Labo samples look great! Thanks for sharing (p.s. my book mission is on its way!!)

    SHILLING OIL!!! Oh yeah… hey, stranger! πŸ˜‰ It's been forever and a day, but I had to drop in to say "hail up". How are you?On another note, I was tickled to see the "oil" in your bag. That stuff deserves its own post! LOL People need to know the nose hair-singeing, potent magic contained within that unassuming little vial. All hail!
