two birds with one stone

What a busy week this was! And it looks like this coming week will be no different. While I have a rare opportunity to sit down and pause, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and show you
1. what I'm currently wearing (just got back from a weekend in NY, and I'm headed back again Thursday night for Christmas - it can be so exhausting all this back and forth!) and
2. what my Christmas tree looks like!
(and 3. how awful was the NY Giants loss today - to Philadelphia, no less!)

Also, I was tagged by one of my favorite bloggers Dead Fleurette to do a "what's in my bag" post, so voilà:

Mulberry Alexa

- YSL wallet (highly recommended, it is very well-designed with tons of compartments and it is extremely sturdy.)
- Blackberry Bold 9780 with OS6. I actually just upgraded my Blackberry this weekend and I love it! The OS is much improved over my previous one, especially with regard to the web browser. I noticed that a lot of bloggers carry Moleskine notebooks around - I did too for many years, but my smartphone has since replaced my Moleskines. I also have unlimited web access as part of my data plan, so my phone has also replaced newspapers and magazines - I just view everything online now.
- That red blob is a giant Bottega Venetta leather tassel which is attached to my keys.
- My Alain Mikli eyeglasses (I don't wear them except for distance - driving, watching TV, etc.)
- A water bottle.
- And last but not least, the blue LeSportsac pouch holds: my iPod, a pack of tissues, Chapstick, hand cream, lipgloss, a Pilot G-2 pen, a small bottle of Tylenol, my Blackberry charger, and a compact mirror. This pouch makes it so much easier to switch handbags since I don't have to dig out everything individually and transfer each one-by-one to a different handbag.

Well, that's all folks! I will be missing in action all this week and probably next week as well, but rest assured I will be keeping up with all of you via Google Reader mobile on my Blackberry, which works so beautifully on OS 6. Yay!

Happy Holidays everyone!


  1. I can imagine your bag must be quite heavy! I switched to my larger wallet and I feel the difference in weight. Random but I like the black shoe box as under tv storage.

    Happy Holidays! :)

  2. amazing. i love all the stuff in your bag! people have been doing a lot of these lately; i think i'm not going to be doing one ever because it would go something like:
    'wadded napkins, 800 000 pens and pencils, chapstick, more chapstick, empty chapstick tube, 3 empty notebooks...'
    not very glamorous AT ALL. i like that keyring. should make it super easy to find your keys.
