I've started a little ritual at the end of each month where I clean out my purse. Honestly, this should probably be a weekly thing but who's got time for that!? And after reading Clancy's favorite things post I thought, what are my favorite things? Definitely the crap I lug around every day. So this month I thought it might be fun to share with you the things in my bag that I can't live without. A.K.A the things that get to go back in the bag.
(Disclaimer: I'm not showing you everything in my bag. I don't think you're interested in the 1001 old receipts I've accumulated or the number of tampons I have with me at any given moment.)
Before I dump out my tote, I have to brag about this bag for a sec. Umm...I LOVE IT. This guy has been such a trooper! I've had it for about 6 months now and I still get so many compliments on it. I love the gold detailing and it had a TON of pockets inside for all my stuff. Can you believe I got it from Kohl's for only $30!?! Oh yes...that's right! My only complaint is that it's just a tad too floppy, I wish it could stand up on it's own.
Alright so here we go! What's in my bag???
Oh snap that's a lot of crap...
...uhhh maybe I shouldn't have done this...
...eh whatever I'm sure yours is just as bad. (peace sign emoji)
Ok, let's highlight some of my necessities:
In my bag you'll definitely find multiple lip products. My two go-to lip balms are for sure this one from Nivea and this one from Yes To. I love Nivea lip products because they are sooooo hydrating! And I'm really enjoying the coconut collection from Yes To, I'm a sucker for a coconut. And my go-to everyday lip color is definitely this one from Ulta. If you want to see what it looks like on check out my post on Spring Lip Colors!
I feel like throughout the day my face always needs a little freshening up and these two are my favorite products for just that. The Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer is AWESOME! It has a nice little sponge on top so you don't need to bring an additional applicator in your bag. And I always have some SPF with me...hello...it's Florida...duh.
And since my complexion is so damn oily I always keep a powder with me. And when it comes to a good powder I will spend the extra cash. The MAC Studio Fix Powder is the best one I've found by far.
The last time I was in Ulta they had this cute little stand of sample perfumes so I bought like 7 (I need some self control) and my new fav is Dolce by Dolce and Gabbana. So fresh. So lovely.
Too. Many. Sunnies. #icant
I always travel with my planner! If I don't write it down it's not happening. Target really stepped up their planner game this year, isn't this lavender one so cute!? And too say I'm obsessed with this phone case is an understatement. If you guys haven't checked out Wallflower Design Co. you're missing out! The cutest cases EVER! I mean come on?! A Leslie Knope quote!? It's too perfect.
Lastly...my snacks. Never leave home without some snacks. Shout out to Trader Joe's for having me set on my trail mix fix.
