Spring Blues with GiGixVaseline

Hi friends, I hope everyone is having a great Monday so far! Today I wanted to share my love of two things: handbags and chapstick! If you’ve been reading Life With Emily for a while, then it’s no surprise that I love a good handbag and I can’t go anywhere without my chapstick. Last week I gave a little sneak peek on snapchat (username enh410) about a new collaboration that I was so excited about: GiGixVaseline!

You may remember when Vaseline came out with their Lip Therapy minis a few years back. They were the mini size of the original Vaseline jars and I carried them everywhere. No joke, I had a one on my nightstand, scattered throughout my house, and one in my bag! The only thing I didn’t like was how much of it got under my nails when I tried to use it. So naturally when I heard Vaseline was coming out with a tin version, I was stoked! Perhaps the best part is that Vaseline recently teamed up with GiGi New York to bring the cutest bag accessory! I now have a personalized leather holder for my Vaseline tin! No more searching through my purse to find my chapstick! I can just unhook the holder and put it on any bag that I’m carrying! #obsessed

I put it on my GiGi New York Kelly Saddle bag recently for a date night out with Nick. Even though it’s not quite spring yet, I know this hydrangea crossbody is going to be on repeat this spring & summer!

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • Happy Monday, friends! 💓 Let’s start the week out right and spread a little kindness, starting with teachers! 👩🏼‍🏫 It’s August which means it’s back-to-school season, so I’ve teamed up with some other influencers to help #clearthelists for teachers and I hope you’ll join me! 📕✏️🖍📌📎📖💌 Please tag any teachers that are underfunded & desperately in need of supplies below.

  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
