Realistically, I love knowing what people have in their bag. Everyone is different, and it really does reflect someone’s personality. I’m going to show you what is in my bag (minus five pounds of receipts and quarters). The bag that I carry around with me is a Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise bag, in the color mulled wine. My old bag was a spring yellow, and everyone and their mother were yelling at me to get a bag that matched the weather, so, I did. Boy, am I glad that I did, this is my favorite bag…ever. I do not carry around big bags, because that just means more junk,, and I HATE floppy bags because things just disappear into the crevices. This is a great size for me (I am quite small as a human), it has an amazing structure so it helps people like me who lose everything stay a little bit more organized. It also just looks darn cute! I can wear it with my leggings and sneakers to the store, or I can throw on a dress and heels, and it fits that occasion too. Universally perfect bag people! So….what’s in my bag right? Let’s go!
First things first, gloves. I do not live anywhere that is cold, but I am a child, and get cold holding a water bottle. These are Marmot gloves, and I have no idea what the name is. They are this really nice waterproof material, and they have this amazing lining on the inside that keeps your body heat within the glove itself. On this same subject….Hot Hands. Like I said, I get cold, and these babies can keep you a little warmer for up to eight hours.
Obviously, multiple forms of lip balm. It is cold, and I go to school full time, and walking around in the weather is evil on lips. The red lipstick is my lifeblood. The Rimmel Provolips is the best drugstore long lasting lipstick I have ever found. As someone who is all about a red or dark lip, I cannot turn it down. For around seven dollars, it really cannot be beat. My boyfriend will even let me kiss him when I have this on, so he trusts it too! Staying on this pattern, perfume…duh. This is Si by Georgio Armani, and it is my go to fragrance at the moment. I had a sample come in a birchbox a couple months ago, and as soon as I ran out of my last perfume, I knew exactly what I was getting. The notes of this are Chypre, Blackcurrant Nectar, Airy Florals, and Musky Blond Wood. Do not ask me what those smell like on their own, but I can assure you that it is wonderful.
Onto the basics, I am a freak, and I carry around my agenda, which is a Lilly Pulitzer Jumbo Agenda. This thing is big, but when you have large handwriting and a lot to write down, you get the jumbo. Obviously a pen, I am a big note taker, list maker, etc. No point in having an agenda if I have nothing to write in it. I always have a pair of headphones. Mostly for listening to podcasts between classes, and music whenever I am out doing errands (also for when your boyfriend plays his terrible music in the car, and you just cannot take it!). Gum…..obviously. The Trident White just does it for me. Lastly, my wallet full of nonsense, and my phone which is not pictured. It is kind of difficult to function without those things.
Phew, that’s it! That’s the nonsense that I have to carry around every day. How all of that fits into that bag? The world may never know. Until next time!
