I’ve recently bought a new bag for fall, and what better way to celebrate than to do a ‘What’s In My Bag’ post? I got this particular bag at Urban Planet for only $30! While the quality of course isn’t as nice as a high end bag, it feels quite sturdy and like it will last for quite a while. It’s a mix of faux leather and suede which are two of my favourite textures this time of year. The colours in the bag are sure to go with my wardrobe and it’s large enough to carry everything I need in it which is important. I’ve been using this bag nearly every day and absolutely love it.
First thing in my bag is my wallet. This one is from Aldo and I’ve had it for a few years. They make really good quality wallets at great prices. This black and gold combination is classic and goes with any purse I put it in.
Then I have my NYX Butter Gloss in the shade ‘Crème Brulee’. This is my favourite everyday lip gloss as it feels hydrating on the lips, wears nicely, and the colour goes with any makeup look.
My sunnies go everywhere with me. Lately I’ve been wearing my RayBan ones a lot as they’re classic and look good with whatever I have on.
Next is my planner. I like to stay organized and blog inspiration can hit me at any moment so I like to have my planner handy to jot ideas down as they come.
I usually keep a travel sized makeup bag in my purse but for whatever reason, I forgot to include it in this photo. Blush is the most essential makeup product I carry with me, and this Covergirl one is perfect for traveling as it’s small and comes with a brush.
My iPhone is with me at all times. I use it all throughout the day for a variety of things so it’s always in my handbag.
Keys are an obvious essential as I need them to lock up and to drive my car. I have a really cute silver heart shaped keychain with a monogrammed ‘E’ engraved in it that I got as a birthday gift from my parents a few years back.
Then I have my Cinnamon Pumpkin hand lotion from Bath and Body Works. I can get dry skin, especially as the weather gets cooler, so I like to keep a hand lotion on me.
Lastly I have mints. I’m not a big gum chewer, but I love mints. I drink a lot of coffee, so these are a must-have for me.
