5 Things I Can't Live Without

Good morning and happy Monday.  Josh and I got away for a short trip to Charlotte for a friend's wedding shower and some shopping over the weekend.  Happily, the weather was fabulous.  Made for a nice drive.

Anyway, Drew over at Coral Cafe tagged me in this fun "5 things I can't live without" series.  My post won't be nearly as gorgeous as hers, (she is a graphic designer afterall) but I'll give it a go.  Oh, and in the spirit of keeping this fun, I won't share the real things I can't live without... like my toothbrush and water, Lilly's video monitor and stroller, cheese...

Massive Bags


I don't know what I would do without large bags in my life.  I carry this Gucci Hysteria Large Tote as my daily diaper bag, and it's held up so well.  I love it because it's not the tradtional looking diaper bag, yet is big enough for me to carry just about anything.  My Dad gave this bag to me as a gift while I was pregnant.  And I plan to pass it to Lilly someday when she's old enough to appreciate it.  I already consider it "hers".

IPhone

  
Seriously though, how did I live without an iphone?  I can check blog stuff, all my social network sites, email, text, surf the web, listen to music, take photos and videos of Lilly, oh and actually use it as a phone too.  OH, and I'm in the process of designing my new iphone case by Dani Notes, which you know will make it that much cooler :)

Music


Right now I'm crazy into Adele's music.  I seriously rock out.  Enough said.

Sunglasses


My eyes are super sensitive to the sun.  I like to think that wearing posh sunglasses keeps me from squinting, and therefore helps delay the dreaded wrinkles.  This pair by Alexander Wang is on my birthday wishlist.
Family & Friends


Because I love her so sooo much I'm just going to post another pic of my girl here.  I hope ya'll don't mind the indulgence.  Oh, and Lilly likes sunglasses too ;)

So now I have to tag another blogger to continue on the series.  Cassie at Hi Sugarplum, you're it!

Sunglasses are very high on my list too. I can't drive without them. They cover a multitude of sins and keep you from squinting. Plus, they can be so fashionable!

Deanna Pai said...

Lilly is so cute! Such a little fashionista, haha. I can't stop listening to Adele right now -- her entire new album has me addicted. Your five things list makes me think we'd be very good friends!

Haley @ Cardigan Junkie said...

My dermatologist says sunglasses are the cheapest way to keep wrinkles at bay, so you are on the right track for sure! I have become so used to wearing mine that I'm blind in the sun without them.

Michaela said...

Your little girl is SO cute. I love when they try on grown up clothes and big glasses. Adorable. I can't live without big bags, either!

The Zhush said...

So great, the post, your adorable girl and her sweet, sweet necklace!

SmartBear said...

Agreeing with you on SO many of these. What would I do with a large bag and sunglasses?
Best,
Tina

traci zeller designs said...

Love this list! I'm with you - my eyes are super sensitive to light. The fact that my sunglasses are *always* on my head is not *just* a fashion statement! ;-) Loving the diaper bag, too. Unfortunately, reflux-happy twins really made it difficult to have a posh diaper bag. Every posh one I tried turned out not to really cut it functionally.

I skied to Adele last week...so much fun.

emily said...

Lilly is too cute! And that bag is gorgeous!

Nikki said...

Great pics!! Love the bag!! And that pic of Lilly is adorable!! What a little fashionista!

Nicole said...

I totally agree with your list! I bought a big Prada bag when I was pregnant with my little guy and have never needed a diaper bag - I can fit everything in mine and it looks so much better, too!

Sarah Gunn said...

I love Adel and never leave the house without sunglasses...something my husband teases me for. Your little Lilly is adorable!

Marianne (Style For Living) said...

Are you sure we aren't related somehow? I also carry a large leather Gucci bag, have been trying to decide on which iphone case to order, wear sunglasses every single day, even when it's gray and rainy, since I'm very light sensitive too and I cannot get enough of Adele's music. The only thing missing is a baby, but I do have a dog named Lily, just a different spelling. Crazy!

Allison {Live Love Small} said...

i'm all about big bags that photo of your little darlin is the cutest ever!

Sarah said...

Your Lilly is so sweet. Your bag is a beauty and the perfect mom bag, what a nice dad you have.

Megan {Honey We're Home} said...

Oh my Lilly! What a doll!!!!

Heather said...

This is a great list and I am seriously drooling over that bag...
