So, I have succumbed to the obligatory fashion blogger post – the “what’s in my bag?”
I can relate to the intrigue and suspicion that women have with other women’s belongings whether they’re wearing them, keeping them hidden in their purses, or putting on a fashion show in their closets and then emerging with quick glances to the left and right in fear of have been peeped. I, for one, am one of these curious females. I love stuff. Very simple, I don’t care if it’s my stuff, your stuff, Nordstrom’s stuff – I love it and I want you to share it with me so that we can love stuff together. (Hey, I never said my writing was exemplary).
Anyway, the necessities I keep close at hand are displayed below. What’s missing? Oh I dunno, tampons, receipts from Nordstrom and weekly Jamba Juice visits, oh and stray strands of my dog Jackson’s fur. It always seems to leave home with me. True love right?
Not fully described in excruciating detail – the Tide stick (I’m a clumsy buffoon and will spill food/drink on my clothes even when covered in napkins and eating like a normal human being) with normal human utensils), band aids (see the latter), Advil (I seem to forget when I will be experiencing the worst cramps of my life therefore I have an illegal amount of liquid Advil ready at my disposal, oh and Vaseline lotion (a mini), that shit is the bomb. I’m a slave to Philosophy but Vaseline lotion is very necessary.
Rebecca minkoff shoulder bag – I got this baby from Nords last month. It’s the perfect size as I’m used to carrying huge duffle sized Balenciagas (no I’m not bragging I’m just being thorough) and this bag is the best size for carrying a significant number of beauty products, tech devices and a wallet. Oh and I never have to rummage. I absolutely DESPISE rummaging – it gives me anxiety and makes me sweat. Both of which I hate as well. Anyway, I’m currently in the midst of building a family. I would call this the Baby Daddy, my white perforated one the Baby Mama and my two Mini MAC’s the wee little ones. I choose Baby Daddy and Baby Mama because there will be more emerging from the woodwork. More than Maury Povich can fit onto his one hour shit show I’ll tell you that much.
Kate Spade wallet – In Tiffany blue. has a ton of compartments, lots of room for credit cards. Good news for credit cards, shitty news for my bank account.
APPLE iPad 2 WiFi 16 Go noir – Again, to be specific it’s my ipad Mini. Fits into my Minkoff MAC Clutch with AH-mazing ease. They’ve become close pals.
Wildfox Couture mod sunglasses – My FAV summer purchase. Sometimes I glance in the rear view mirror and feel like Elton John but it’s okay. They’re Wildfox.
H M elastic hair tie – They’re Goody ones actually. Snag free. I have like 3 just in case. In case I need 3 ponytails I guess.
MAC Cosmetics tattoo concealer – Mine’s the typical Studio Fix pot concealer. Do you really want to know? It’s NC35 and it’s the best concealer I’ve ever used. This would be an item I want to have when deserted on an island, or yeah, pretty much every other single situation in life.
MAKE UP FOR EVER lip gloss makeup – This, I have in No 34. Or is it 36? Anyway I’ll get back to you on that. Same deal with the one below, really nice texture though and a nice shade for daily wear.
Mac cosmetics lipstick – In Please Me – my everyday shade. I like it because it’s a color you can just slick on no matter what time of day. I’m the girl who wears lipstick at 8am. Don’t hate.
Jo Malone perfume fragrance – I have a mini version of both this and the Rose scent. They last all day long and in case the Rose gets too intense (I’ve been told it provokes memories of public restroom sanitizer,) I spray on some of the Pear & Freesia to balance it out.
Fresh lip treatment – I use this before any lipstick application as I prefer more matte colors and MAC matte shades are dry as shit. Oh yes, I also keep a clean mascara wand to rub this stuff on. Quel handy.
Bath body product – My miracle product. Dime sized amount leaves my hair tangle free and super shiny for hours.
Philosophy body cleanser – Smaller size, I have Christmas scents on hand. I love the smell of Candy Cane at any given time during the year. Don’t judge, at least I’ve shamelessly admitted it.
Cath Kidston beauty accessory – Again. similar item. It’s a compact, one end magnifies so I can look at my stray eyebrow hairs, panic that I don’t have a set of tweezers close by which causes me to sweat, which then causes me to pop open the compact yet again to properly blot away said sweat. It’s a vicious cycle and I know it happens to you too.
The Body Shop round hair brush – I don’t have the same brush, but a similar version. Mine also has a shit ton of hair intertwined in the bristles.
I’ll do this for each of the bags I carry. Only because I’m sure everyone is dying to know, not due to the pathetic fact that I clearly have too much time on my hands.
