As I type swiftly on my break at work (I'm always working when I'm not working), here's a quick post featuring my tote handbag that's the perfect size if you need a bag for school or the office, without having to lug a giant backpack or carry-all. Along with a silly title in my attempt to not reference All American Rejects circa 6th grade.

SKINS

Made with Sprout by HP #CIY 
Presenting my skincare routine by way of Sprout by HP! As I mentioned in my Spain Photo Diary post, I had the extreme pleasure of working with HP to experience the innovative ~powers~ of the Sprout. I scanned each item with the overhead projector you see below, and got to draw, arrange, and re-arrange to my heart's desire. 
As for my skin care routine, these are my absolute staples. I do switch a few out at a time depending on my skin's mood for the week/month/whatever, but they always make their triumphant return. I use the apricot scrub about two or three times a week because it's gentle against my sensitive skin and smells great, but I discovered that St. Ive's recently started testing on animals, and I'm not down. If anyone has any suggestions for a cruelty-free, gentle exfoliant, do let me know!

Touch screen monitor, overhead projector, and touch pad mat--no keyboard or mouse required! (But wireless ones are included for those creatures of habit, like myself).

PHOTO DIARY: SPAIN

Spain Diary Sprout HP 
Yup, leave it to me to upload a travel photo diary two days short of three months after the fact. I see it as a more thorough opportunity to look back at moments with a more sincere fondness, rather than it being fresh on the brain. Rumination. That and my procrastination, sorry! 
In addition to my relatively brief photo diary (you can see my more expressive video diary here), I'm excited to share my new Sprout by HP! Above is a project I finished with this innovative new PC system. I scanned each item individually with an overhead projector that's attached to the touch screen monitor. It also comes with a touch mat, no mouse or keyboard necessary! A keyboard is projected onto the mat, which reads each keystroke. This machine is a lifesaver, as I can finally give purpose, and a digital presence, to my heaps of polaroid photos, not to mention show stubs, magazine clippings, and photo booth strips. It's also a unique way to document my handwritten ramblings, musings, and reminders, which I do so enthusiastically in my leatherette bound notebook, specifically, my Piccadilly Essential notebook. I snagged the smaller version for an easy stow in any sized bag.
If forming a mental image of the Sprout is a little difficult, I don't blame you--it's the first of its kind! Stay put, a follow up is coming in tow with a skincare routine tutorial. Until then, here's Spain!
