Some pics from a few hours ago. Went into the city and stopped by the National Building Museum. They have a really great gift shop actually. And then headed to Capitol Hill to have lunch at Good Stuff Eatery. I wore pants though because it was supposed to be another cool day but it ended up being pretty hot. I should have just worn the dress I wanted but oh well what’s a little sweat anyway.
From the gift shop. Pantone, wooden utensils, & metro maps happen to be some of my favorite things.
I’ve also continued with last week’s free sample usage.
I was so disappointed by Burt’s Bees’ Radiance set. These two items worked amazingly. My skin looked so good with the radiance moisturizer! However the scent just really bothered me. :(
I’m really sensitive the scents in facial products. This one just smelled sort of like stale sweet tea… and it didn’t fade which was the real problem. I ended up having to wash it off. But aside from the scent the product was really good.
The Skin Food samples were nice. Skin Food items are always nice but not always noteworthy.
A few weeks ago I ordered the below furoshiki designed by Leah Duncan off of Uguisu along with a strap used to transform it into an easygoing bag. I really loved the print. Not only the colors (I’m still really into deep blues) but I liked how the hard edges of the design played into such a soft and smooth fabric especially when being used as a bag. I was feeling at a loss for a summer bag. Sometimes tote bags feel too plain but my super structured red fold over tote didn’t feel “warm weather” enough. When I saw this it was like a light went on. :) Plus with this strap I figure I can turn any scarf into a bag if I want to do so in the future.
I haven’t had a chance to put the bag together yet. I’ll try to skip off and do that now.
But here are some photos from their webstore for a better idea. They offer a bunch of different patterns.
