I love this bag:
I think it could be the perfect diaper bag too...




Check out the Maria Menounos reporting live from Sundance this past week wearing Elliott Lucca’s Teba Solid Flap Tote as a backpack:

Is it sad that I live in Salt Lake but have never tried to see any celebrities at The Sundance Film Festival?

The Teenager Inside of Me

Okay, so this is totally the teenager coming out in me, but I just entered a modeling contest for a makeup company that I LOVE.  And I totally know that I am not going to win, but I feel like I have a lot of sweet bloggers on my side that might give me a little bit of a chance..:) At least that is what I am hoping and asking a favor for...

I love e.l.f. cosmetics for 3 things.  Their blush, their eyeshadow, and their eyeliner pens.  I use these 3 items daily, so you can see why I gave it a go to try and win their makeup for life!

If any of you aren't too busy and have a sec...literally it takes less time than leaving a comment on my blog...please click on this link and vote for me!  Thanks guys - you are the BEST!




Also, it was funny...I looked over my profile and saw my age as 26...It actually startled me!  I still feel 20 inside, and I really was thinking I was still 24! :( weird.
