Whatchu Got in That Bag

My purse carries all of my essentials but I am never the girl to win that bridal shower game of “what’s in your purse”. I don’t tend to carry much in my bag for some reason. When I was younger I tried my best NOT to carry one! Why? Because I’m super forgetful and I would leave it places! Plus I can never find anything in it. There have been multiple times when I “lost” something because it was thrown to the deep bottomless pit. So since I am a working woman I have moved up my purse game to a Marc Jacobs boho. The problem with the profession shell is that it holds some interesting items.

Phone/ Phone Case

So my phone is the first and foremost. It’s not only my connection to the world but my go to little camera. So most days I just grab my phone and go, thanks to my card case.This was the best purchase I have ever made. In goes my license, debit card and Target  card (duh). It’s amazing because when I don’t want to lug what seems like a piece of luggage around I just throw my phone in my pocket and go!

Make-Up Staples

So there are a few items that I always have on me. They are all season and much needed in my life. I have my Benetint in a rose shade because it adds a quick splash of color to your lips and cheeks. This works perfect for the winter months because it doesn’t bleed on your lips like lipstick does! Then I add a quick and moisturizing gloss on top. I love soft scents and have fallen in love with the L’Occitane line. It’s glossy and never sticky because who doesn’t love your hair in your gloss. And lastly just a little something to pick up your coloring in the afternoon. Especially after a stressful day and I’ve rubbed my face off I sometimes need to cover my dark circles and all those red marks!

Make-Up Bags

I will never forget when a bottle of lotion busted open all over my bag. Since then I only put my cosmetic stuff in a bag so nothing leaks and ruins another purse. Plus no one wants to see my tampons floating around!

The keeper of countless cards, lots of receipts and minimal money. I am a big fan of less is more, so I want a wallet that I can grab and go! I love my bags to be more simpler in color so my wallet can be as exciting as I want.

So you’ve seen the “typical” stuff now let us meet the pieces that make my bag…. interesting. First and foremost I always have a camera and my latest love is my Polaroid! It’s a great conversation starter AND the pictures are instant. Then we have my Gameboy, lifesaver when waiting for a friend or sitting at the DMV. I know I’m way too old for this but I can’t get Mario on my iPhone. And lastly we have my notebook. My friend gave it to me for my birthday and I use it to write down thoughts and potential posts.
