So it was hovering below 50° on Friday night, and today it’s a balmy 61° in Newport, pushing 70° in Providence. Is it any wonder coughs and colds are going around left and right?!?! I was at Bellevue Beauty Walk on Bowen’s Wharf after a delightful lunch at Diego’s (which, if you haven’t been, you’re missing out…hello, Baja aioli), and saw these adorable retro ice bags—perfect to perk up any of your infirmed family and friends (and they’re just 15 bucks)! Designed by Gal Pal and with more than a dozen adorable designs, these are just too cute. Considering the ramp up to Saturday’s Halloween’s parties, the pictured martini-themed version might be perfect to nurse those open-bar blues that might linger Sunday….
I also couldn’t help but notice the great Tepper Jackson weekend bag in the window! “Its’ generous size holds all of your necessary cosmetic and hair products that keep you looking fabulous while jet-setting. And don’t just keep it packed away in your luggage, take it out on the town and show off your unique sense of style,” boasts the designer’s web site about the (pictured) Aurora Gold bag, and frankly, I couldn’t have said it better myself. It can be yours (and hopefully mine) for $64.
