Earlier today I saw this post on Lush 4 Blush and thought it was such a cute idea! So, of course I had to do a post myself. Enjoy! 🙂
What’s in my bag?
I love being hands-free so I bought this cute recycled leather purse from Ashley Ann Bennett Fashion. She is a San Diego based artist/designer and makes the prettiest painted leggings, jewelry, and accessories. I met her when I did makeup for a fashion show she was featured in. For items that are a necessity, like a wallet, I like to keep simple. I like to switch out my purse once in a while so I want my wallet to match. I bought this Michael Kors wallet at the Navy Exchange in Guam. It was a deployment gift to myself haha. I have to have a lanyard on my keys because I’m always misplacing my keys and rummaging through my purse to find them. My lanyard is nothing special. I’m pretty sure I found it at Home Depot for a couple dollars. I have a pair of $13 shades from Target. I like gold accessories. Then there’s my makeup bag…
I got this gold makeup bag from Ipsy a few months back. It’s the perfect size and like I said above, I like gold accessories haha.
In my makeup bag I usually keep a lip gloss, stain or balm. Usually I’ll just throw in whatever lip product I decide to use for the day. I keep a tampon. You never know when you, or a friend, will need one of these. I like to be prepared. I keep my Pacifica blood orange perfume roll on and lotion. I absolutely love this scent. You can find these travel size products in a kit at Target for around $16. I keep hand sanitizer. Got to kill all those germies! 😉 I found Birthday Cake gum at Von’s for $1.49. It is delicious and perfect for when I have a craving for sweets but don’t want to kill my diet. Last, but not least, I carry my business cards in this super cute mermaid card holder that my mom bought me from a boutique in Kailua, Hawaii (where we are from). I always make it a point to keep a few business cards on me. You never know who you may meet!
What do you keep in your bag? Any products that’s not here that should be in my bag?
