I’m back with everyone’s favorite 💕 post drumroll🥁 please “the what’s in my handbag!”
Everyone knows girls carry everything but the kitchen sink in their handbags ( I know that metaphor has been beaten to death but bear with me 😜). I totally adore the small clutches and trendy flap bags that are all the rage and look so chic. But in all honesty they can’t even hold 1/3 of the stuff I lug around on a daily basis.
Hence the tote or the really large hobo have become my preferred style. So today I’ll be giving you a detailed insiders view of my handbag ✨🎉. Let’s get started!✨First off the bag 💕. I bought this beauty from JOYN. The company employs talented artisans in Rajpur, India and provides them with steady jobs, vocational training and education. I love the block printing on the side of the bag and it’s 100% leather. It’s a north south tote so it holds a lot without overwhelming my petite frame. The inside is roomy with plenty of pockets to organize and the lining is a light neutral which makes locating my stuff so much easier. Oh btw the little voodoo dolls don’t come with they are my cute add on ❤️✨Moving on let’s see what’s actually stashed inside 😇✨Cosmetics case : Starting from the top right is my cosmetics case which I custom ordered from Etsy 💕. It has three pockets on the inside and a wrist strap for easy carrying read inside a plane toilet ✈️
✨Tissues : if I happen to have a cold.
✨Feed case : I got this when I purchased my Feed bracelet I use it now to store my headphones. So now no more tangled headphones🎉!
✨USB : which I never use yet I keep hanging on to it.🤔
✨Car and house keys : i am forever loosing my keys so I finally got myself a keychain in Prague👑 that doubles as a souvenir. 😍
✨Eyeglasses: My contacts have recently started irritating my eyes so I keep my glasses with me incase I need to pop the contacts out and still be able to see🤓.
✨Pen: I always keep a pen handy for emergencies : read : on a flight and filing out the customs form with a red crayon from the kids coloring pack 😳
✨Wallet : Tory burch birthday gift 🎁 last year 💕
✨Sunglasses : For some reason I’ve gone back to my Coach aviators after becoming bored with the Tom Fords.
✨Gum: Instant breath freshner 😜
✨Baby wipes : For cleaning hands I find they work better than hand sanitizer which dries my hands out. Plus they are a great at cleaning up makeup mistakes.
Now let’s take a look inside the cosmetics case. What you thought we were done already 😊Ok let’s see yikes !looks like I have a mini pharmacy in here 😱
✨Mini hairbrush : self explanatory
✨Hair tie : For emergency buns and braids on the go.
✨Kohl: my go to eye makeup
✨Mini toothbrush, Floss & Toothpaste : Aligner wearers will get this 😭.
✨Liner and pad : period emergencies
✨Panandol: random headaches, period cramps you get the idea 💡
✨Hair pins : to tame my unruly bangs.
✨Cuticle oil: For my ever flaky cuticles TMI I know 😳
✨Hand cream : This crab and tree mini is the prefect size for handbags.
✨NYX lip cream : my fav matte lippie💕
✨Tinted lip balm: doubles as my everyday lipstick 💄
✨Loccitane Shea butter : for severely chapped lips and dry hands. I got this in Hamburg where my lips were uncomfortably dry.
✨Neosporin : for cuts and booboos😭
✨Maybelline age rewind concealer : one of the best under eye concealers I have tried.
✨It cosmetics blush and brush: for rosy cheeks 🌹
✨Sunblock : because tanning is not an option 🌞when you are a desi brown girl.
✨Mini compact: for checking my face randomly throughout the day 🙃
