What’s in My Bag
I got my Mansur & Gavriel Bucket Bag in Brandy about this time last year and though I love its timeless design and quality, it has its downside: no compartments! It’s a pretty large bag (12.25” H X 10” W X 6” D) and fits all my junk, but sometimes I feel ridiculous looking like a kid trying to find the right leggo piece when I’m just looking for my car keys. So I decided to get a mini City Bag from Zara which is tiny but big enough to hold my essentials and perfect for running errands. And while I dump everything and transfer a few into my new bag, I thought I’d share with you what was in my big bag all along!
– 2 earphones. Dunno why.
– YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in #15 Corail Intuitive. It’s like Milani Luminoso in a tube: the perfect, my-lips-but-perky shade.
–Bésame Brightening Vanilla Face Powder. Just got this a few days ago to use for pressing down shine throughout the day. Smells delicious!
–Francis Bacon: Painter of a Dark Vision. Got it from Powell’s in Portland for about $8. Great pocket-size read.
–TONYMOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk. Nostalgic hand cream that smells just like Korean Banana Milk. Yumm.
–Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 01 Rose Shimmer. Super sweet moisturizing glossy goodness.
–BAGGU Leather Pouch in Persimmon ($20) that I use as a coin purse. Seems like the Persimmon shade is discontinued but Poppy is similar.
–Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 04 Orange. I love this sheer yellow orange shade.
–B. Balenciaga Rollerball. It’s like Marc Jacob’s Daisy but grown up and sophisticated.
–Nutrilite Women’s Pack. Vitamins on the Go!
–Swanson Full-Spectrum Bitter Melon Capsules. For digestion and metabolizing sugar. I’m not sure if it actually works.
-Regular pen and a Self Defense Keychain. Found something similar here.
Can never carry too many lip products, right?
