Simple Pleasures

So far so good. Friday has started off quite well! I began my morning with a bagel from one of my favorite bagel shops and a cup of coffee from the Keurig in the office. I still sort of hate the Keurig machine, but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches. Anyway, here are some things that I am enjoying right now.

Pogo Mug
I don't know if you know this about me, but I love to play computer games. Nothing crazy, but I'm pretty fond of words games like Boggle, or card games like Canasta or the many versions of Solitarie, and oh so many more. When I first got a subscription to Pogo a few years back, it was through the McDonalds Monopoly game. My boss had won it, he didn't want it, so I took it! From that moment on, I was hooked. I am now a Club Pogo member and since I got my mom hooked on it too, I pay for her subscription as part of her Christmas present every year. I've always wanted a Pogo mug ever since I saw that my friend (who used to work for Pogo) had one. Little did I know, Pogo brought back their Pogo merchandise store and my mom bought me a mug! Not only that, but she added my user name to it too! You can't see it in the photo, but it's super cute. I was so excited to use it, that I made a cup of tea last night just so I could. You wouldn't think someone would be so excited about a mug, but I happened.

Cute Tin of Mints
My sister picked up this tin of mints for me when she went to Sacramento with a friend. I'm a sucker for a cute container, but what was even better was the mirror that inside! Now I can freshen my breath and check to make sure I don't have a giant piece of spinach stuck between my teeth after lunch.

 Estée Lauder Bag
If there's one thing I can say my Nana and I have in common (among many other things of course), it is our mutual love for cosmetics. And not just any cosmetics. Quality cosmetics. I have long since put my days of Maybelline eyeshadow and CoverGirl blush behind me. I do still purchase CoverGirl LashBlast on occasion when my Diorshow Blackout runs dry and I did try CoverGirl Nature Luxe foundation a few years back, which was awful, so I try to purchase items that are a little finer. One of my favorite things is Estée Lauder's black eyeliner pencil in Softsmudge Black. I've been using it since Jr. High and to be honest, every other black eyeliner I've ever tried since then has always fallen short. So Estée Lauder is my go-to, but I've expanded on the black and often wear the gray Slate Writer color as well. The last time I went to my Nana's she gave me one of her new gifts with purchase (she had two), which was the purple snakeskin bag in the photo. I love it and I'm already using it to house my other EL items like the eyeshadow and blush palettes that I've been using non stop and a new blue eyeliner pencil that I'll be testing out this weekend!
