I’ve always been a big fan of the ‘what’s in my bag’ posts or magazine articles, mostly because I’m a nosy person (guilty as charged), but also because I love seeing if there is anything I’m missing out on or absolutely need in my life/in my bag (because I don’t already carry an entire drugstore around). I never used to carry much in my bag…actually, that’s a lie. I’ve always carried a lot in my bag. I still carry a lot. The difference is that now it’s all organized. I switch bags frequently so I’ve wisened up to organizing all my stuff in a mini pouch then I just grab the pouch and throw it in a bag. This also ensures that if makeup spills, it’s only spilling inside the mini bag, not all over your nice purse. Whether you’re looking for a few new things to stock up on (any excuse to go shopping right ladies??!) or you’re just nosy (like me), I hope you enjoy this peek at what’s in my bag.
Also, I’d love to know, what’s in your bag that you just can’t leave home without?
Lotion // Good not only for dry skin and hands, it also works to tame fly-aways, keep eyebrows in place, and (in an emergency) as backup deodorant
Bandaids // Because walking around NYC can give you lots of blisters
Blotting papers // These are a lifesaver on hot, sweaty days
Mascara // Can also double as eyeliner in a pinch, just turn the wand vertical
Mini perfume sample
Nail buffer // In case your nails need a quick shine on-the-go
Umbrella // I’ve learned in NY, you never know when the weather is going to change and there is nothing quite as bad as getting stuck out in the rain, sans umbrella
Business cards & card holder
Sunglasses // As with the umbrella, you never know when the weather is going to change, so it’s best to be prepared
Tide pen // This has been a life saver more times than I can count
Not pictured: a snack, water, hand sanitizer, my vitamins (I take a probiotic and digestive aid with every meal), Emergenc-e (in the winter), Tums and Advil
