WHAT'S IN MY BAG
As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to let you have a look into my purse (a.k.a. my life. LOL). Most of the time, the inside of my bag looks like a mini tornado. Lucky for us, a bag was created to help get our lives organized.
THE BAG: OAD New York "Kit” - True Black
I love this leather bag so much. It is the perfect size for traveling with all your necessities. All the pockets make it ideal for finding all of the things that are bound to disappear in the dark abyss that is your purse. The strap is also adjustable to go from shoulder length to cross-body. Cute and functional...I can dig it!
SUNNIES: Crap Eyewear “The T.V. Eye” - Gloss Crystal Clear
Of course, there is also a perfect spot to slip one of my staple shades into. This keeps my pair from getting all scratched up inside my bag when I don’t have a case handy. I adore the style of these sunglasses so much that I own them in black as well. These clear sunnies are fun, different, and can go with any outfit.
HAND CREAM: L’Occitane Hand Cream “Lavande”
First of all, I love the smell of lavender anything. It's relaxing, pretty, and doesn’t have an overbearing scent. I'm a big fan of this brand because all their creams are rich without being too thick. My skin is always incredibly dry and L’Occitane is one of the only lotions that can moisturize my hands, leaving them feeling baby soft. It's a must-have for me at all times, especially when I’m traveling since airplanes can dry you out most.
LIP BALM: Glossier “Balm Dotcom” Universal Skin Salve
Cult classic, one of my favorites EVER. Like I said, I suffer from dry skin all the time and that unfortunately includes my lips. If you have the same problem, try this lip balm. A little bit really goes a long way…I’ve had my little tube for almost four months now and it’s still going strong with plenty of balm to spare. Balm Dotcom leaves your lips feeling super hydrated for hours. You can put it anywhere that's in need of some moisturizing love. I swear by this product. Just try it, trust me...your lips will thank you!
POWDER: MAC “Blot Powder Pressed” - Medium Dark
This compact is guaranteed to travel with me wherever I go. It's great for checking makeup and teeth, touching up, and blotting away those annoying shiny spots on your face throughout the day. It uses light translucent powder that leaves your skin looking smooth and natural, not super cakey. Nobody likes a cake face, am I right?!
LUMINIZER: RMS Beauty “Living Luminizer”
This highlighter is unique and amazing. Its sheer cream texture gives your face a youthful glow that lasts and doesn’t come out too sparkly or greasy. I love applying this to my top of my cheekbones, my eyelids, and cupid’s bow for a natural dewy look.
LIPSTICK: MAC “Matte Lipstick” - Whirl
I am obsessed with this pretty dirty rose shade lately. It’s a great every day natural color that can match most any color. Whirl is enough to accentuate your lips without trying too hard to make them pop.
FRAGRANCE: Chloe “Love Story” Rollerball
Love Story is one of my fave scents to wear. It's a beautiful feminine, fresh, and floral fragrance. (Yay for alliteration!) Rollerballs are perfect to throw in your purse for whenever you need to spruce up a bit. Smelling good personally makes me feel 10 times prettier, even on days when I look bummy and go makeup-less. It's the power of perfume!
MASCARA: Yves Saint Laurent "Babydoll" Mascara
Not only am I obviously a big fan of YSL's handbags, but their make up is to die for too. A current treasure of mine would have to be this mascara. The tube alone is just too pretty to not want to use. It gives my lashes all the volume they desperately need while separating them at the same time. With a few quick swipes of this baby, your eyes are immediately transformed, looking like you have false lashes!
To complete this purse party, I also have my keys, chewing gum, notebook (for jotting down reminders and song lyrics), a pen, cards and hand sanitizer (always...I'm a huge germaphobe!). And there you have it! You've officially seen what's currently in my bag and learned some of my favorite things that I can't live without. I feel like we're basically best friends now. So 'til next time...TTYL BFF! <3
