I live by the quote, “Life is short, buy the bag.” If there are three things that I am obsessed with, they are boba, bags, and shoes. Please tell me that I’m not the only one! For this post, I am sharing the essentials that I take with me wherever I go. I’ve wanted to create a “what’s in my bag” post for quite some time now and am so excited to have finally made one. I think what pushed me to make one is because I got this new pink purse. Isn’t it lovely? It has a detachable strap, which allows it to be used as a handbag or cross body and is the perfect on the go bag. Keep reading to find out where I got it!
Here’s what’s in my bag:
1. My iPhone
This is a given! You can’t go anywhere without your phone nowadays. My iPhone case is from Sonix. I love this brand because their designs are stylish, and they actually protect your phone. I’ve dropped my phone countless times, but the screen has not cracked.
I wear my watch daily not just for style, but also because it is so convenient when you need the time. Instead of having to get your phone out of your bag or pocket, all you do is look down at your wrist and see the time. I feel like watches are timeless! (hahaha see what I did there! please excuse my love for puns. )
4. Pencil Pouch
This pouch is from Target, and it’s where I put all of my pencils, pens, sticky notes, erasers, etc. Don’t worry. I have way more than one pen, pencil, and Sharpie in my pouch.
5. Rifle Paper Co 2018 Planner
Isn’t this the prettiest planner? It is a bit pricey, but as a girl who uses a planner everyday, I thought it was justified to splurge on a planner for my first year of college. Rifle Paper Co. has the cutest patterns in my opinion.
6. Kate Spade Journal
I love to journal, and I try to do so at least once a week. It’s a great way to reflect and just stop and think after a busy week. I also enjoy reading (and cringing) at the things that I’ve written about in the past.
7. Yeti Rambler 20 oz Tumbler
Ever since entering college, I started drinking green tea in the morning to help me gain some energy. My dad got me this Yeti Tumbler, which is AMAZING. It keeps my tea warm, and it has a lock to open/close the opening so the tea doesn’t spill. I highly recommend this if you like hot drinks!
8. Mascara, Eye Liner, Lip Balm
These are the three products that I use on the daily. You can never go wrong with mascara, eyeliner, and lip balm! The Loreal voluminous mascara works so well!
These glasses make me feel really cool LOL! When I wear them around campus, I always catch people looking at their reflection. Joke’s on them because they don’t know that I can see them haha!
Where I got my Bag:
This bag is really special to me because I got it in a market on my trip to Italy with my mom last December. The bag is made out of real leather and isn’t super expensive because the vendors at the market are always willing to negotiate. What I love most about this bag is the color. It’s a nice shade of pink that will give any outfit that extra pop.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what are the top 3 things that you carry around in your bag. Until next post 🙂
