Guest Post with Aimee of Chic n' Cheap Living

Today's "5 things" post was done by Aimee of Chic n’ Cheap Living.

Aimee's blog is a fantastic find.  Just like the title says, she keeps it cheap but is able to remain so chic.  She is constantly bringing her readers deals, giveaways, amazing and affordable finds, and beautiful inspiration. 

Earlier this month I took part in her 2010 Blogger Holiday Gift Guide post {if you need a last minute gift, be sure to check it out}.

Thanks so much for taking part in the "5 things" series, Aimee!

5 things I cannot live without by Chic n’ Cheap Living

This is Chic 'n Cheap Living and I wanted to thank Gina for having me on her blog.  I'm honored to guest post on Acute Designs while Gina and her family enjoy the rolling, green landscapes of Ireland.  When I was asked to post about the 5 material things, I couldn't live without, I was at first afraid it would take a while. But it turns out that I really do rely on my top 5 items on a daily basis.

1. Cell/Mobile Phone - I fully embrace living in an age where we're constantly connected to others.  My husband has finally convinced me to get an iPhone 4 so I'm excited about checking e-mail and accessing the web on the go too (at least it makes me more efficient right?)

2. Camera - I never want to miss an opportunity to take a shot, so I always have an automatic camera with me (how else could I get such great food and travel shots?)

3. Shu Uemura eyelash curler - I am a girl of mediocre length, straight lashes.  That is, until I discovered the Shu Uemura eyelash curler.  Suddenly I have lovely, curved lashes and my eyes are instantly brighter.

4. SPF via Perricone or Bare Escentuals - I've always had fair skin.  I just can't help being the palest person in H 'awaii (my guide there really said that to me once). That also means I wear sun protection every day.  I apply Perricone No Foundation Foundation or Bare Escentuals daily.

5. Purse - Call me Bag Lady.  No really my friends have called me bag lady because I always have a purse and sometimes multiple bags.  I am getting better about not carrying the kitchen sink around, but I love my bags - Hayden Harnett, Burberry, Celine, Goldenbleu.  I am a purse aficionado.  I see a Chanel reissue in my future...


  1. Thanks for having me dear! Yep, still dreaming of the Chanel reissue!

  2. I JUST bought the Shiseido eyelash curler but now I'm wondering if I should have held out for the Shu Uemura.
    Great top 5 Aimee!


thank you so much for your comment! i read and enjoy each and every one :).
