What's in my bag?

What's in my Bag?

I haven't done one of these posts in a long time, so I thought I'd dump out my bag and let you know what I keep inside! Haha.. This post has actually been requested quite a bit. I think they're fun, and I like to see them too!

The handbag I'm currently carrying is a winter green faux leather hobo with lots of gold studs on the sides. I purchased it from Marshalls last month for around $35. It's a no-name brand, so unfortunately there's no label inside the bag where I can tell you the exact information on it. I've been carrying it all month though, and I love it!

Eyeglasses - I need to wear glasses when I'm reading or when I'm on the computer, so I usually have them them with me in my bag. They aren't too fancy or anything, but if you're curious, the  model # is Chanel 3198-H.
Sunglasses - I love sunglasses, and I always have a pair or two in my bag. Currently I've been wearing my super oversized Gucci 3157/s Sunglasses.
iPhone 5 - I got an iPhone 5 for Christmas, and I've been completely obsessed. If it's not in my hand, it's usually in my bag. I usually always get comments on my brass knuckles case, and I got it from eBay. Just search 'brass knuckles iPhone case' and you'll find tons of results.
iPhone Charger - Because I'm on my phone so much and forget to charge it most of the time, I always keep my charger on me.
Michael Kors Saffiano Leather Continental Wallet - I have a couple wallets that I rotate every now and then, but I love zip-around wallets because I can cram so many receipt and junk in them. haha! I got this wallet back in June for my birthday, and although they had this wallet in every color, I can't seem to track it down on any website. I guess it's because MK comes out with so many different styles often. They currently have very similar ones at the stores, but with a larger metal plate on the front.
Hobo Metro Slide Credit Card Holder - I usually keep my gift card in a metal card case, but because I didn't like having to pull all of my cards out each time I had to look for a card. When I saw this little card case at TJ Maxx, I thought it was the perfect little convenient case so I wouldn't have to dig around at the register.
Business Card Holder - I was looking for a glitzy business card holder and found this adorable one from an online store called Mont Bleu. I keep all of my important business and appointment cards that I may need inside.
Eccolo Little Pink Book - If I ever have anything to remember or write down, I always jot it down in this little journal. It's a mess of recipes, grocery lists, to-do lists, thoughts, etc. I purchased it a while back from Marshalls. They always have a good selection of journals.






Narcisco Rodriguez for Her Eau De Toilette - I purchased the smallest size bottle (1 oz) so I could keep it in my handbag. It's one of my favorite night time fragrances. Whenever I wear it, it's inevitable that someone will compliment the scent.
Lady Gaga Fame Rollerball - I just recently got this perfume because so many people have been talking about it. I like it, but I don't love it. It might grow on me.. we'll see.
Glass Nail File - I glass nail files opposed to any other file, and I always have one on hand. They seem to do the best job of filing my nails without damaging them. This cute swarovski crystal one is from Mont Bleu. I always get my nail files from there.
Tangle Teezer - I've talked about this a few times on my blog, but I love this little brush to quickly get through my hair.
Kenra Hairspray - I always try to keep a travel bottle of hair spray in my bag for a little pick-me-up when my hair needs a little "oomph". This hairspray is pretty average. My favorite spray though is Beyond the Zone Flipped Out Spray. I have yet to find something that beats it! :)

Hand Sanitizer Wipes - Always a must-have for me being the germaphobe that I am.
Nivea Hand Cream - I always need cream for my hands, but I rarely ever carry lotion on me because I try to limit the weight in my bag. Luckily, this little tin is nearly weightless and doesn't take up much room. And, it works great!
Kleenex
Keys

Leather Gloves - I'm a huge fan of leather gloves during the Fall/Winter and I've been loving these for the past couple of months. I purchased them at H&M on Black Friday.
Rings/Earrings - I'm often on the go and forget to put on earrings and/or rings, so I almost always have a couple pairs in my bag for those times. ;) The rings are from Tahari and H&M and the earrings are from Forever 21.

Makeup Bag - I try to keep my makeup bag as light as possible so I always keep my foundation, blush, eyeshadow or anything heavy at home. I usually always carry a couple face brushes with for touch-ups, as well as bronzer, mascara, eyeliner, lipstick and lipgloss.

What's currently in my makeup bag is- Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation (because this is a light squeeze tube, i'll bring it with. Glass bottles stay home), Nars Laguna Bronzer, MAC Kabuki Brush (for touch-ups), Burt's Bees Chapstick (has been my savior as of lately!), MAC Bombshell Lipstick, MAC Marquise D Lipstick (LE), Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara, Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner, Make Up Forever Aqua Brow & an angled brow brush. I'm totally capable of carrying a lot more makeup in my bag, but I try to keep it as light as possible. Sometimes I only carry lip products with.

So what do you think? Do I have a crazy amount of junk in my bag? Haha, I think just about everything is pretty necessary. There are times though when I don't feel like lugging a heavy bag with me so I sometimes dump everything out except my wallet and makeup bag.

Is your bag pretty light, or do you get teased at how ridiculous heavy your bag is? I usually do. lol

    1. I got the idea from other what's in my bags i've seen in the past. I never carried one before last year, but I love that I have one. I'm more inclined to write things down and have them all in one place! I feel more accomplished when I write lists for myself. :)

  8. The iPhone case is so cute! I always have wipes with me as well, except they're typically Olay Sensitive Skin wipes. As for germ killing, I usually have a little bottle of gel sanitizer on hand.

  9. Your bag and everything in it is actually so pretty! I love the makeup bag! I think if I had a medium/big sized bag I'd fil it with anything I might possibly need, haha, so I keep a smaller bag. I really liked this post and the pictures are amazing! xx

    1. Thank you so much! I got the bag from Forever 21 - they always seem to have good cosmetic bags for super cheap :) i know what you mean. Sometimes I like the change of carrying a clutch or smaller bag so I won't have to carry so much. Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! :D

  11. Do you ever get lost in your bag trying to find things? I'm having this problem currently lol. I guess I need some more pockets and small bags to hold and organize my stuff. Also I was wondering what lens you're using on you camera. If you don't mind saying.

    1. YES. I try to organize things in pockets so it isn't all jumbled together, but it's bound to happen. lol I think it depends on the bag though. Some have lots of pockets and dividers, while some are literally just a big sack. haha Maybe a few clear cosmetic bags would do you good if you tend to lose items in your bag a lot. I use to keep several bags in my purse for that reason - one bag for receipts, one for makeup, one for tools (tweezers, eyelash curler, nail file, etc.) and so on.

      The lens i'm using is just a standard 18-55mm lens.

    2. Yes I definitely need some clear bags. That's a great idea for receipts! Thank you for replying, you're always so sweet :)

  12. Firstly I love your bag! The slouchyness and studs is my perfect combination. I too carry a lot around with me. A lot of stuff I probably dont even need. I cant help it, I just chuck everything in there!

  15. Great post, I would love to hear more about why you love Beyond the Zone Flipped Out Hairspray (I'm always looking for the perfect hairspray) and where would I find it? I would also love to know the notes in Narcisco Rodriguez for Her Eau De Toilette, I LOVE fragrance, but tend to stay away from anything too sweet or floral. Thank you so much for the earring idea, I do the same thing (why didn't I think of that)lol. I always love your blog <3
