What’s In My Wang

I know what you’re thinking…Kel, I thought you said you weren’t going to buy that Alexander Wang bag?! Well, my friends, I saw this puppy in Nordstroms (Tysons Corner, VA.) and I had to have it. Ya’ll know how I do. Lol…I originally wanted the one with the rose gold hardware, but I am so glad I opted for the matte black hardware instead. This bag is everything! I mean, look at that leather, honey!! I am so in love with it…

But since carrying this satchel, I have had to adjust the amount of junk I normally carry. The studs make this bag just a little heavy, so piling a bunch of stuff in here is a big no-no. I reduced the size of my wallet (I had been carrying the big leopard print Halogen one). I pulled out this old Juicy Couture one that I hardly ever use and fell back in love with it. Although its quite compact, I can fit all of my essentials in it.

Below are some other things I’ve been carrying in my satchel recently. As you can see I am usually only concerned about my eyes, lips, and hands. Lol…These TB sunnies have been a staple piece in my 2012 ensemble (I didn’t take them out of the case because you guys have probably seen them a million times since I bought them in July) and I carry them everywhere I go now.

As for the lippies, although I am usually a gloss girl, I have been loving Mac’s matte red lipstick in Ruby Woo. But let me tell you, that stuff is super DRYING! I’ve also been loving this cream lip stain from Sephora because it reminds me a lot of Ruby Woo, but it is also DRYING! I mean, maybe it’s me…Maybe I just have dry lips but sheesh! Therefore, I have to carry this Sugar lip treatment with me at all times. Whenever I go red I have to have some chapstick or something at the ready! I’ve never been a lipstick wearer but red lips are just sexy to me…Despite the hassle…(BTW if you know of a similar color that isn’t drying, please let a sistah in on the secret!)

As for my glosses, Smashbox’s Pulse is my number 1 most worn lip gloss in 2012. This is my second one and I have been wearing it to death! I’ve also been wearing this Bobbi Brown lip gloss in Firefly. If you like shimmer, you will love this one. I like layering it over sheer or nude gloss.

To keep my hands moisturized during this winter, I’ve been using Soap & Glory’s Hand Food. This stuff smells like heaven on your hands. Makes your hands super soft and moisturized without making them greasy. And when my cuticles are looking rough, I always reach for Burt’s Bee’s Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. If you like lemons, you will love this stuff as well.

Last but not least, I’ve been carrying this customized business card holder I received from an old boss some years ago. Since one of my goals this year is to network more at blogging events (and in general), I’ve been carrying my blog business cards with me in case I meet anyone who may be interested in Clutchez.

I do carry a little more than this in my handbag, but these are my most recent essentials. I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I hope you all have  a blessed weekend! xx

I thought that I would start my week (I was supposed to post this yesterday) by posting some pictures from my Instagram (IG) account. I’m sure I’ve already told you all how much I absolutely love this app! I believe its available on both iPhones and Androids now so you should definitely look into it if you haven’t already done so! A lot of what’s been going on in my world on a day-to-day basis is reflected on there so here are some pictures to sum up the past week or so on IG:

How cute are these custom made post-its and letter head? I ordered these, along with some blog business cards, from Vistaprint. Although the designs are a bit limited, I was really impressed with everything they can actually do (i.e. custom made pens, post-its, t-shirts, journals, web hosting, etc.). Check it out when you get the chance…

Remember when I did a post a little while back about turning my dining room into an office (Inspirational Spaces)? Well, I went and purchased a desk and ghost chair from ikea, and set my little office space up last weekend…I really love it. The color of the desk really brightens up the room. The nail polishes and leopard print coaster on the desk also add a super girly feel to it. Not to mention that weird desk lamp. If you would like for me to do a separate post on my office space just let me know…

I went a little crazy at Nordstrom over the past couple of weeks during the Anniversary Sale, and I purchased some lip glosses (that I really didn’t need). They are gorge though! The Chanel, Nars and Bobbi Brown glosses are the new ones in the picture above…and are all different from what I would normally choose for myself (fuschia/pink). Gotta step outside your comfort zone sometimes ladies!

As for the green ensemble, I’ve been looking for a trench vest for months!! I finally stumbled upon one in the Old Navy outlet at Arundel Mills last week. I went to the mall with my sister (hey Keisha!) and I was trying my best not to buy anything, but who can resist something purchasing something that they’ve been on the hunt for?! Certainly not me…I can’t wait to rock this baby!

Last, but certainly not least, my birthday was on Sunday, August 5th.  Outside of all the amazing birthday wishes and other things I received, I had to post this amazing home cooked meal! Stuff salmon with crab meat, scallops, shrimp and aspargus! Ah-Mazing! Feel great to now be a part of the 30 and over club! Lol…

Whelp, I think I’ve rambled on long enough. I hope you all have a lovely week and I will talk to you all soon! Smooches! XOXO
