Greetings! Unfortunately since it's been non-stop rain and hail here in Southern California I have had no reason to get ready and go anywhere, so instead I decided I would make myself a cup of hot chocolate and sit down to make a more visually appropriate introductory post.
my ever-growing shoe collection. This is just the overflow of what won't fit on my regular 12-row shoe rack. Oy vey. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
This will be the Le Quaintrelle headquarters, surrounded by a clutter of odds and ends: Stacks of magazines, vintage-hat-wearing dollheads, half-finished crocheting projects, and fresh flowers.
I've also seen a lot of "contents of my purse" pictures, and think it's quite a creative way to give a little bit of insight on the type of person someone is. We are what we carry afterall, right? Why just limit it to food?
The contents of my plain black leather handbag I've been towing around lately are (clockwise from top):
My eco-friendly sunglasses (made from reclaimed materials) from ICUEyewear, Yellow Anthropologie Wallet, phone, Neutrogena Spray SPF 70 Sunscreen (seriously, SPF 70), This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald, gum, an array of lipglosses still in their TSA-approved plastic bag from a flight back in December! the bag includes: MAC Lipglass in orange-descence, C-thru and Underage as well as clear Lipglass and regular MAC lipstick in Hue, and Watch Your Mouth Lipbalm from Bath and Body Works (varieties the spice of life, right?), my keys, checkbook, a sample-size bottle of Burt's Bees Aloe & Buttermilk Body Lotion, and my coffee cup coin purse.
So there it is... now you know what I'm drinking, where I'm working, what I put on my feet and what I carry around on a daily basis. Hopefully once the clouds part and the sun starts shining again I can put all these to good use.
So until then, au revior fellow quaintrelles.
