What the heck is in the suitcase I call a handbag? A lot recently since I have been traveling a bit. So it’s time to clean this big boy out and get organized. If you want to see all the crap I have been toting around with me for the past month and a half just keep reading!
Firstly, I love this purse. It’s huge so I can carry everything I need in it. Secondly, I love the structured style of the bag. I picked it up at Target a few months ago for $39.99. I’m a huge fan of Target handbags because they are affordable but look high-end, not to mention pretty damn good quality. I put my bags through hell and the ones from Target always survive nicely.
If you are interested in this purse it’s still available here
Not only does the bag have a super roomy main compartment but it has two larger zippered area on the sides, a small zipper pocket on the inside and a two open pockets. I like that it also has an attachable shoulder strap.
So what is inside? Let’s dive in and find out together (cause I’m not totally sure)
First thing on top is my water bottle I take with me everywhere. I bought it just for the gym but I’ve been using it almost every day to make sure I drink enough water. I found this big ass bottle at Rue 21 on clearance for $1.50. I think it holds somewhere around 4 water bottles worth of water. It’s huge, cute and sassy.
Next, up, I have a bunch of random crap I seem to always need. Pens, headphones ( one new set I just got) phone charger, flashlight, one ear hook for my headphones ( another one is under the car seat I think) keys, a lighter and a notebook.
Then I have my eyewear. I wear glasses most days so I have lens wipes, then two pairs of sunnies, case, and a cloth case that doubles as a lens wipe which comes in handy.
Because I’m allergy prone and kind of a mess I lot of little just in case things. Such as; tissues, creams for itchy skin and eczema. My friend gave me these handy-dandy sample sizes for my purse because I’m always scratching. lol. Of course, you need some Ibuprofen or the like. I can’t take NSAIDs but I use this container for my Tylenol instead. Then I have some Band-aids for blisters so my feet can be happy.
Continuing on with first aid type of stuff I have some wet wipes from BWW because they were free. LOL. My allergy meds and a cute little hand sanitizer I got from a bank. I also usually have a snack or two like a Kind bar or the like for before a workout.
Man’s deodorant? Yep, it’s in my bag from an overnight trip. I don’t typically use this kind for day-to-day but if I’m going to the gym or going to be super sweaty then I need the real deal. Organic deodorant can only do some much, I normally wear the La Vanilla brand. That being said, I love this scent called Hawkridge and yeah, I bought this one for myself. Who says you gotta only use girl deodorant?
Speaking of smelling good. I have a couple perfumes I bring with me always. I don’t always bring the large bottle of the Marc Jacobs Honey along but he was left from the trip. I do always have the rollerball of it and that old bottle of Very Sexy Hot from Victoria’s Secret since it’s plastic. Do they still even make that?
Next is hair stuff. I think I had a can of hairspray in my bag too but already took it out.
Now for that makeup. I have two big bags in there right now from an overnight trip but I normally don’t carry that much with me on the day-to-day. Just a setting powder and lip products.
And here’s what’s inside those two bags. Q-tips, Nyx Dewy finishing spray, a mirror, Colourpop Lippie Stick, two lip liners, two eyeliners, two mascaras (because I need two apparently). I brought the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette along because it has 2 blushes, bronzer, highlighter and two ambient lighting powders, plus a decent mirror.
Then I have both the Shade + Light Contour Palette and the Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette which is great for travel. Two brow pencils and my Nars foundation, concealer and setting powder.
Of course, I need brushes. I brought all my favorites I use the most from Sonia Kashuk, elf, and Real Techniques.
And lastly, I have my old ass wallet and loose change. I think it’s time for an upgrade. Not much has changed from the last time I showed you the inside of it.
There you have it, all my purse crap. LOL. Here’s a link to my purse what’s in my bag blog and my other travel bag post in case you’re interested. I know I enjoy reading these kinds of posts cause I’m nosey. LOL!
