10 Things I Can't Live Without

Get ready kids...the cheerful, hopeful Newlywed Wife is BACK! No more sad posts for a while (especially since I'm sitting at a client site listening to a manager in the next office attempting to sing "I Wanna Kiss You All Over" - he sounds more like an alley cat than a human, and I'm laughing so hard right now I'm having trouble breathing).

Anyway...May I now present...

10 Things I Can't Live Without!

1. Valentino Purse. My first big present from my honey-boo! I carry it every day - whether it matches what I have on or not. Patent leather, by the way, is the most durable material ever, this purse has been beat up and doesn't show a scratch...

2. Diet Coke. Hi, my name is Newlywed Wife, and I'm addicted to Diet Coke. I mean, seriously addicted. Don't drink the last can, or you'll see a grand-scale hissy fit.

3. P.S. I Love You. This movie has been on HBO almost every time I've folded laundry in the past month. I love Hilary Swank's entire wardrobe from this movie - the girly dresses, boots, and headbands are ever-so pretty {oh, and Gerard Butler is pretty too}.

4. Fluffy VS Robe. Also from the husband. I asked for a bathrobe for my birthday, and this light pink, fleece-lined loveliness came wrapped in pink tissue - I think Newlywed Husband is regretting this purchase, however. This robe is pretty much worn whenever I am at home, goodbye cold nighties, HELLO fleecy goodness!

5. Pink Ann Taylor bow belt. Don't underestimate the power of a skinny, girly belt. I've paired it with everything from jeans and a button-up shirt, to a black dress, to a power-suit at the office. Just putting this belt on makes me feel instantly pretty.

6. Joes Jeans in Provocateur fit. The PERFECT jeans if you are about 5'3" and have 'child-bearing' hips. Dark wash only, light wash jeans are a disaster waiting to happen.

7. Essie 'Fiji' nail polish. Perfection for a summer pedicure.

8. Earrings. I'm terrified of needles, and didn't get my ears pierced until I was 24. {Don't judge me.} But now that I did...WOWSERS! These two little holes added a whole new dimension to my wardrobe :)

9. Diorshow Waterproof Mascara. Like any good Southern girl, I refuse to walk out of my house without mascara...and this is the BEST! In blackest black, of course.

10. Patent high-heeled slides in black and red. Also from Newlywed Husband (he's a little metro, I think), I wear them every day. No joke.

Dior mascara is the best! I love it... I sometimes layer it with Cover Girl Lash Blast, it is really good that way.
