I’m a co-conspirator at Union Jack Creative and a charity runner in the rapidly approaching 2011 Boston marathon, with an addiction to bicycles, Converse and fashion blogs. I also have a day job. Requisite objects for every day include:1. A Chrome messenger bag - waterproof, crash proof, life proof. This bag has scraped Boston roads, kept electronics dry in the Amazon, summited Mt. Washington and toted high heels to Middlesex.2. Notebook - small enough for a purse, large enough to scribble missives and cheap enough to buy in multiples.3. Sewing kit - just in case.4. Chapstick - for protection from sun, wind, cold and spicy food.5. Rimmel eyeliner pencil (or two) and Maybelline liquid liner - for glamming up impromptu outings after work.6. L’Oreal mascara - for touchups after a rainy bike commute or a lunch hour run.7. Chandelier earrings for after-work outings.8. Pearls for bringing professional polish to unexpected vendor meetings - pearls always up the ante.9. iPhone. Of course (For Instagram, if nothing else!)10. Assorted writing implements - Sharpie markers, Zebra pencil, Staedtler and Uniball pens.11. The Stick (little size) - because nothing works quite as well on the go.12. Digital camera - for documenting artwork, shenanigans, snowbanks and surprising sunlight.13. Wallet - doubles as a clutch in a pinch.14. Swiss army knife, ICRC edition - picked up on study abroad in Geneva, on hand to slice an apple or open wine in parks ever since.15. I Heart My Bike button - because I do!
