What's In My Bag

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Hey lovelies! Long time no...post. Sorry 'bout that. I'm back today with a quick little 'what's in my bag' post. I wanted to do a 'what's in my makeup bag' post, but realized I don't actually carry a makeup bag like, ever. Go figure.

We're going to start from left to right. First things first: headphones. I can't leave the house without them. I usually take the train to where ever I'm going, and boy is it lonely on there without music. 
Next we have a pair of sunglasses, which happen to be my favorite pair that I own. Often times I switch out the pair I'll be wearing for the day, but sometimes I get lazy and just have this one laying in my bag. 
Onto the next; there is a flash drive. I honestly don't know why I carry a flash drive everywhere, maybe I'll need to download a file while I'm on the go? Ha! 
And next we have a trusty hair tie. I like using the ribbon ties because they don't rip my hair out every time I use them. I also don't like having a hair tie on my wrist (when I can avoid it), so I keep one in my purse at all times. 
A travel-sized vile of Advil remains in purse always. You never know when you'll get a headache so bad the pain can only be dulled by a "pain killer", or when mother nature decides to bestow her curse gift on you, and you need to stop the cramps! 
A pen is pretty basic, you always need one. You never know when you're going to have to endorse a check, ya know? 
Next I have my favorite lip balm, the Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in the shade Unique Pink. It's like magic in a tube. I might have to dedicate a separate post it it. 
Next is a mini emery board, just in case my nail breaks and it has to be filed down. 
In the middle there, we have a cute little kitten compact that I purchased from Forever 21 a while back. You always need a mirror, even if you're not wearing any makeup that day. Who's to say an eyelash won't fall off into your eye? How else will you get it out?! 
Then we have my trustee iPhone 6. Love that thing. 
Lotion is always a must to carry around. We all get a little dry and ashy sometimes, and we need to handle it quickly. 
Now we have my little wallet, which is a business card holder. I love it because it doesn't allow me to carry more than I need to. My wallet helps me not overspend, woo! 
The last thing in my bag is a snack. You may have seen me feature Clif bars in my last favorites video. I love them more than words can describe. 
Finally, we have the actual bag itself! I carry a handbag from Zara that also comes with a long strap so I can wear it as a shoulder bag. It's really great.
Until next time.
