Today's post is something a little different. A little more fun. The last time I did one of these was way back when I started my Youtube channel in 2013, so it's definitely about time I do an update. I'm also really excited about my new Rebecca Minkoff MAB (Morning After) Bag which I recently purchased and absolutely love toting around. My every day bag choice is usually one of this size that can literally hold everything I can possibly need to get through a day of work and travel. If I am just going out for the evening or to run errands, I will just grab my wallet or wear a smaller messenger style bag. Watch this weeks youtube video here, to see the specific items I keep in here if you are curious or need ideas of what to pack your bag with. You can also read till the end of the post, where I will insert the video as usual.
Some of the details I love about this bag:
The gold hardware, I have always been a fan of the gold and rose gold look in bags, so obviously that detail makes me very happy.
I also love the large pocket at the front which is perfect for keeping my phone safe and accessible at all times.
The cobalt blue lining with black polka dots is both adorable and stylish!
The fringed leather pieces hanging from the zippers, although I feel like they may get damaged pretty easily.
I was reading my last what's in my bag post and noticed some similarities. I'm clearly still carrying the same deodorant (a new one, but the same brand), the same nude lipstick I have cherished and repurchased for years and other basics like sunglasses, headphones and phone chargers. Back then, I used to have a makeup bag in there as well, but I no longer feel it's necessary. Instead, I like to stick to products that last all day and don't require touching up at all. The only makeup I keep in my bag are those lipsticks which I don't often find myself using anyways. I may throw a powder and fluffy powder brush in when summer rolls around and my t-zone gets oily, but besides for that I haven't been carrying around any additional makeup bag.
Here is what I keep in my bag most of the time and what was in there at the time of the video. Although the contents vary from time to time, this is basically what it usually ends up looking like.
My Apple Iphone
Sunglasses Case and Sunglasses
Apple Charging Cube and Wire

I hope you enjoyed getting a little peak into my purse. I feel like I simply carry my daily essentials but I guess that is different for each person and what their day looks like. What do you carry in your bag that you feel is really important in getting you through the day? Let me know in the comments form, I love hearing from you!
