Today I Love…..Book Bags!!

9 May

You may like to call them novel bags…..and I think they are awesomely novel!

 Who wants to look fashionable and smart all at the same time??!!

 Yep I do – what about you??

 My fashion radar has recently found lovely little handbags and clutches that actually look like real books when you carry them under your arm! Somebody smart is onto something here……

My recommendation is you get a title that you have actually read……

Otherwise if you happen to be approached with questions about the ‘book’ you are carrying – you should be prepared to RUN….and quickly so you don’t have to try and answer questions on a fabulous topic that you have absolutely no idea about!

Get yours here:

Somebody had the dream…..and now somebody has made the dream….it’s Herbie on botox here people……

Today I love….Evernote

4 Aug

One of the things we will all remember about him is the notepad….
Whenever you had a problem or a question, out would come the trusty notepad and pencil (always a pencil, and always sharp!) to weigh the pros and cons of the situation and discover the best path for you to take….I myself am an avid note-taker….
So here’s hoping that Evernote will help me in the digital age….

Make a note.

Or 500,000 of them.

Love the slogan….unfortunately I don’t have a top pocket to keep my notepad and can’t keep track of my keys….let alone a notepad all the time….(sorry Bump!)
