What’s In My Bag? 2nd Edition

After nearly 6 months, I’m back with an updated version of the ever so popular “What’s In My Bag”. There are quite a few new bits and items along with some old regulars that can be found in my new purse!

My new handbag is the Zip Top Satchel and it’s from Kate Spade’s younger sister brand called Saturday. It was an amazing bargain during the holiday season as it was 30% off! The leather feels very durable and the gold hardware is classic. I’m in love with the ladylike structure of the bag and the vast amount of space on the inside! In the outer pocket on the back I like to stick in a couple of my business cards for quick grabbing. I also throw my phone in the larger outer pocket so that I can take it out whenever I need it. The inside of the bag has a gorgeous black and white star design, which creates a casual and laid back vibe.

The first thing that can be found in my purse is my hardcover journal that I bought at Barnes & Noble. The journal has both lined and unlined pages, which is great for those who like to write and draw. It’s filled to the brim with lists, writings, and letters I’ve received, so it’s the most treasured item in my handbag. Next up is my new wallet from my sister (Thanks Teresa!!!!) and it is the beautiful Glitter Bug Lacey in Rose Gold from Kate Spade. You can probably tell that I have an obsession with Kate Spade! The wallet is gorgeous and it holds all of my cards and cash in a sparkly zip up case. For makeup, I like to hold all of my products in a pouch so that they don’t spill out into my bag. I like my Small Patent Cosmetic Case from Tory Burch because it holds just the right amount of makeup in a perfect to go sized container. I keep my Revlon Colorstay Concealer, Burberry Lip Mist, Sei Bella Lipstick, EOS Cucumber Hand Lotion, Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick, Kate Spade Live Colorfully Rollerball, Dove Mini Deodorant, Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizer, and Kate Spade Mini Mirror in my makeup bag for touch ups. For some random items, I keep my silver harmonica, disposable camera, plastic travel utensil set, a small Swiss Army knife, and my Hawaii All State Marching Band lanyard in the two back pockets of the purse. My keys are kept on a cheeky spinning key chain from Australia, which hangs in the bag in one of the front pockets. Because I can’t seem to go on without music, I always have headphones hanging around in the depths of my bag. They are always tangled, but they are in my bag 24/7. One of my must haves in my bag is my Mophie Mini Portable Charger, which I bought before my California trip. When you’re constantly on the go, a portable charger can extend the battery of your iPhone, which is extremely helpful! For food I have a legit full bag of Dove chocolates. Why on earth do I have a full bag of chocolate? I have no idea. I also have a pack of Ice Breakers Duo in Strawberry, which is my all time favorite mints.

What are some of your must haves in your handbag? I hope you all enjoyed a look into my bag! Stay tuned for a delicious recipe coming tomorrow that you won’t want to miss!
