What's In My Bag?

I love love love handbags, and after looking in my closet, I think you'd come to the same conclusion. From the large totes to small vintage clutches, the shape and size may change, but I have some essentials that are always along for the ride. Take a look!


Sunglasses: Since it's pretty sunny where I live, I try to keep a pair of sunglasses in the couple of bags that i use the most. Sometimes they go sans case because of purse size or some great organizational skills, but they are definitely a must have for me! Aren't these heart shaped frames just charming? When they are on, it's not as obvious of a shape, but I think it's such a lovely touch!

Lip Gloss and Such: Ok, I'll admit, I'm a lip product fanatic. I typically like to have a couple of things with me because I'll usually layer the products. My current love is the Smith's Rosebud Salve; if you haven't tried it, you need to! It's so smooth and makes your lips feel wonderful. If there's one thing besides mascara that could be a stand-alone product, I'd say it is lip color. Lots of people shy away from a lipstick because they're afraid of bold and bright, but I've found that this pretty pink is perfect for making you look awake and pretty. (Maybelline's Pink Me Up) 
I recently received the Mark. Juice Gems lip gloss (in Fig) in a giveaway from the beautiful Emily, and I've been using it quite often as it's the perfect shade to swipe on over my lip color. 

Ipod: Well, I've gotta have my tunes to workout with or listen to while I'm waiting for an appointment. 

Blotting Sheets: If you have oily skin, these will be your lifesaver. I remember my friends and I carrying them around all the time when we were in high school, and all of us going to touch up our makeup after lunch. The best thing about these is that they won't remove your makeup in the process, score! 

Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel: When you're out to lunch after some shopping, sometimes a bathroom is not so accessible, so you can whip out your delicious smelling anti-bac and toss your worries of illness to the wind. 

Mints and Pens: Please tell me you carry these with you all the time...My pen or pencil seems to become quite the elusive creature when I need it most! Mints are the fastest way to make friends..especially on airplanes. 

Hairclips: These little jaw clips are the best for an instant hair fix. I like the smaller ones, but I know they come in multiple sizes for your hairstyling needs. 


Wallet and Phone: The importance of these items is well understood, I think.  :)


I think it's interesting to see what people carry around all the time. So, what are some of your essentials? Perhaps we share some favorites? Let me know!


Blessings,

Candice

I carry my wallet, mobile phone, anti-bacterial hand gel, an umbrella or sunnies (depending on the weather), and a small makeup bag consisting of a couple of lip products, concealer, hand cream and blush.

Wow, I totally enjoyed reading through each part of your bag items. :) I carry 3 pens around, haha! They get really handy especially when in uni. ;) Of course, there's the phone, and the wallet. Then there's some bobby pins, my earphones, Eclipse mints (a must have!), and a thumbdrive. Haha. Pretty geeky, but totally useful. ;)
