Why Purses Should Be 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins

I am a bag person! Sometimes shoes, but most of the time purses are my number 1 deadly sin. Hence I am constant on the look for another great finding, and this is how I have discovered the designer Irina Neacsu from The Craft Lab and her lovely bags. I love the idea of  how The Craft Lab tells old stories in new words.

I know I said just bags, but I also love the chairs done by The Craft Lab. Being a Batman fan myself.

Tips on How to Be Ready Faster in the Morning

Monday mornings are the worst. Not just because it is Monday, and the weekend is over and there is a whole new week in front of us, as if this was not enough, getting ready in the morning is much slower. Lately I have been trying to implement a few changes in my routine and I have gained some more precious sleep time. I can be ready in 1/2 hour with dressing, eating and applying make-up – though more in the minimal style.

Monday Morning

If, like myself, you are the type of girl who changes bags depending on the mood, clothes or day of the week, I found it very useful to have an inner bag with all the necessary items and just move that from bag to bag – a small, soft bag to use as an inner pouch that holds all your essentials — wallet, lipstick, antibacterial gel, or whatever “essential” means to you.

I love the inner bag from Fullspot, but there are more other ideas:

Have a go-to blazer – it is that item that can pull together your entire outfit and make the transition of that gorgeous Mickey Mouse T-shirt from weekend to office working hours.

Have some dresses that can easily reduce the time to search for separates in the morning to just one piece.

In order to avoid colors mismatches I have a lot of black pieces that go very well together, and which I can mix a lot with my other clothes. That might come more easily for me as I love black as color, but give it a try and you will see what I am talking about.

Try to keep an organized closet, I am doing my best and there are short amounts of time after a closet cleansing or something similar when I discover new things in the back of my wardrobe.

And, of course, check the weather forecast the night before so you will so you can have all the accessories you need at the ready.

There is of course the universal advice, to have your outfit ready one the night before, but I am such a procrastinator that I was never really able to do that more than a couple of times. I rely heavily on morning inspiration and divine intervention into my brain.

Hopefully you can find some useful advice here, but I would love to hear some tips from you.
