That time my bag was on Covert Affairs.

Well, ok, it wasn’t my personal bag. But it was the same bag. And it was a cheap thrill to see it on one of my favorite shows!

This is my bag, a black Michael Kors Selma. I call her my “command central” because she can hold everything:


She’s one of my most favorite bags ever. I have a lot of bags I really like (Kate Spade, Coach, the usual suspects), but the MKors Selma is one I’ll carry for a very, very long time.

I was recently watching an episode of one of my favorite shows, Covert Affairs, & I saw Annie carrying a bag that looked really similar to the Selma. I said oooh cool, that bag’s like mine! I mean, they usually dress Annie in Louboutins & clothing that’s out of my budget (typical for TV)…so the fact that she was carrying a bag similar to the Selma was a thrill. You know when you have a bag & know it well, one that has a similar shape is instantly recognizable:




So I was enjoying myself, mildly wondering what bag it was that was so similar.

Then they showed more shots of her & the bag…


This time I squealed…I can see the shiny gold Michael Kors logo…it’s the Selma! It’s the Selma!!


ANNIE HAS MY BAG! Well, she had it for one episode, anyway.

I love my Selma even more now, if that’s possible. Heh. And yes, I realize that it takes very little to thrill me in life…hahaha!

Here’s to fabulous bags we love & having that love validated by our favorite TV shows. :)

Can we talk about how awesome this TV tray is?


I can’t believe I wrote that title. I just called a TV tray “awesome.” A TV tray. Those forever-useful yet forever-ugly home accessories that always seem to come in handy although they’re often so ugly that you have to DIY them into submission. But not this one! Look! It’s from CB2. It’s gold. And modern…. Read more

Hello Fall: Neutral love & alien inspiration

Currently read(ing) and loving


I’ve enjoyed so many good books lately that I just HAVE to share. These are all on my Kindle, and some are also stacked on my bedside table—I loved them so much that I had to have them in “real” book form. Am I the only one who does that? Hahaha. I love my Kindle… Read more

A fitness color kick


As I mentioned in this post, I’m back on the fitness bandwagon (and am sore & tired today, a state I expect to be in for months). I suppose it’s because fitness is back on my radar—and I’m reading fitness mags again—but I’ve suddenly developed a raging case of I WANT ALL THE NEON FITNESS… Read more

A nice touch: Amazon Smile program


Today as I popped into Amazon to look up something, I was given an interesting popup that announced the Amazon Smile program, which donates a percentage of eligible purchases to a charity you choose. Oh? Tell me more! I clicked, and saw this: The hardest part was deciding on the charity, but Wounded Warrior won… Read more
