Oh friends, I had such a full, lovely day today. It started in a press event at a very exciting showroom (more on that in a few weeks), continued at my beloved sewing/pattern-making class, where I'm fixing my dress for my brother's wedding (so emotional) and ended, after a try-out at the hairdresser, with a delicious pumpkin soup, courtesy of my huz.
All day, I was waiting to get back home and post my contribution for A Hasty Life's blog crawl. Isn't that a grand idea? Now, don't get me wrong: if you think my bag is messy NOW, well, it's usually so much messier! Here are my "essentials":
At my once-in-a-blue-moon mani-pedi, my manicurist turned me on to OPI's Avoplex, and since then I can't leave home without it. I used to always have a book in my bag, but my back protested loud and clear, and I now always have an Audible book on my Nokia (hence the headphones). Magazines, however, are a habit I can't seem to kick (and don't really want to...). Aside from InStyle, you can spy Go Style, the Israeli magazine for which I started writing, in the background. I usually don't carry a hat, but it's been rainy here for the last past days, and I have an unexplainable bad luck with umbrellas (they always break!). A faux-python diary and two sharpies satisfy my doodling urge plus the need to stay organized (very, very difficult for messy me), MAC's brow pencil in "stud" keeps me nice 'n pretty, and the green crayola marker is for afternoons out with my kiddo.
I got my Kisim bag, which I coveted for months, for my birthday two years ago, and we never parted for long since then. I do have other (lovely bags) but this one is just so comfy and it gets prettier with age...
Thank you so much, Ashley, for asking me to participate. Please don't forget to visit Yellow Songbird, who posted her beautiful bright bag yesterday, and check out The Best is Yet to Come for her post tomorrow.
And please tell me - I'm dying to know - what's in YOUR bag?
