When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Switch Handbags!

28 Mar

Today was not a good day for me. Because of the abrupt change in weather here in my lovely area of Upstate NY, my head decided to hang out in “massive migraine mode” all day. I spent a good chunk of my time in bed sipping ginger ale and nibbling crackers. Oh yeay, oh yeay…. a completely wasted day. For those who sometimes get migraines, you know exactly what I’m talking about. And for those of you who don’t? I’ll just say I wouldn’t even wish them on my ex. Yeah, they are that bad.

With an hour or so before bed, I felt like I needed to do something glamour or fashion-y to at least not feel like the day was a total waste. So, with a smile on my face (and an Excedrin Migraine under my tongue), I decided to change handbags. I had been using the same brown patent leather “XOXO” brand bag for almost a week now. I’ve been wearing a lot of brown! But I felt I needed some color. Not a lot, just a little. Plus I needed a bit more room. My XOXO bag is quite tiny and until these headaches let up, I need some space for a few meds. Purses just don’t show off your unique style–they need to be functionable too.

While looking though my closet, I thought ahead and realized it would definitely be jeans kind of weather for me for the next several days, so I picked one of my favorite colored, patterned, jazzy bags I have: my Kathy Van Zeeland satchel in Blue Leopard. I love this bag. It has lots of compartments, tons of room, looks jazzy as heck, and is uber chic with a pair of hot denims and a black leather jacket. Style with an edge. That’s me!

Now that I’ve done that, I think I might do my nails too. My fingers look a mess and there is nothing more annoying (and embarrassing) to me than a frazzled manicure. I don’t usually like doing it right before bed, but since I have this great top coat which dries fast without smudging, it’s easier to do them late at night. So, hopefully I will feel better tomorrow because I’ll have a new purse and classy looking nails to help boost my mood and cast the headaches away!

Tell me, Sassy fans… when you just aren’t having the best day, health-wise or other, what do you do to boost your mood? (Legal answers only. LOL!)

      Ouch…. shopping is my definite stress reliever. And I have the closet to prove it! Sometimes it doesn’t matter what I buy so even thrift store shopping works for me. My husband is like you… he’s the game killer when tension runs high! Good suggestions!

    Some milk chocolate can make me happy and also to put on my favourite perfume.

      Perfume is SUCH a relaxer to me. I had asked on another blog once if I was the only person who put a drop of their favorite perfume on their pillow before bed, just so the scent could relax them–take them to a happy, sunny place. I wasn’t alone. Another one of my fragrance relaxers is burning wax tarts. I have about 10 different flavors. I love that “warm” scent of happiness through the house!
