There are three things I never leave the house without: A clutch, Vaseline for my lips (I have never been much of a lipstick girl) and my cell phone (duh!). Using a clutch has been key to keeping me extra organized, especially while traveling. I love being able to find all of my essentials without having to dig around in my tote.

I have been spending the past week in Vail, Colorado and I have made sure to have my trusty Vaseline lip tins with me at all times. Let’s be honest, no one wants dry, cracked lips in the mountains or on the slopes. Remember when I told you how much I love those cute little Vaseline lip tins?  Well, Gigi New York partnered with the brand to help keep me even more organized (and with a monogram- what else could a girl ask for). Especially being in the dry air, my cute lip tin holder has been a lifesaver. It has been clipped onto my tote bag, in my clutch and I even had one in my ski jacket. I mean what girl doesn’t want another excuse for a monogram.  :)

“I think you will agree that life’s plans are not always tied up in neat little packages. Occasionally we find ourselves at unexpected crossroads with more than one opportunity from which to choose. Time itself is often the best indicator of which decision to make, for it can tell so many thing that are now hazy.”
― Linda Lee Chaikin

So I am here today, at a crossroads.  But then again, I guess that is pretty much every girl in their mid-twenties .  Whether you are living in a small town and wanting to get out, or feeling alone in a big city; that feeling of what is next lingers in your mind. For me, it consumes my thoughts.  I know I have so much to be grateful for; I am happy and healthy, about to marry the man of my dreams, have a wonderful job and blog that I love, but yet everything else in my life feels a little like chaos. So today, I am going to take a deep breath and realized everything works out in time.
