I got my new copy of Lula magazine and as usual, it is just beyond. Beyond! And then I realized something: Wouldn't it be nice if every day was a dreamy editorial? Wouldn't it be lovely to wear flowers in your hair every day, traipse through meadows in designer aprons with your bestest friends?
Yesterday, I went in to get my weekly allergy shot. As I was leaving, the receptionist watched as I gathered my purse, tote bag, jacket, scarf and cup of tea and dryly commented, "you don't travel light, do you?" This is one of the NY things I have not been able to let go of in my Philly life. Like a modern-day nomad, I travel with everything I need for the day, including but not limited to: my make-up, a snack, at least one beverage, a wallet, a notbook, my phone, a change of shoes and a magazine or two. Sometimes I throw a few groceries in there too. People who have cars use them to throw all their junk in, I carry mine on my back. One thing that keeps my bags from falling into complete disarray is my love for pouches. Here are some favorite pouches, so cute they inspire rhymes...
Sunday's pouch is grey and flat, in the whimsical shape of a sleeping cat. Monday's pouch is of fine feathered flocks, it's bright photoprints will knock off your socks. Tuesday's pouch with delicate beads, is a tiny purse of a highbrow breed.
If my friend's Pinterest boards are an indication of what's happening (and I totally believe that to be true), people are seriously into hair. Hair teased into sculptures, hair rolled into curls and bows, hair that's up to there. Maybe it's a combination of the teased and flipped 'dos of Mad Men and the Gibson rolls of Downton Abbey, but hair right now is headed towards the seriously coiffed. I think I'm going to have to start waking up a lot earlier.
