The Inside Look: What's in My Bag

July 22, 2016

Today I thought I'd bring you an inside look into what's in my bag! For some weird reason most people, me included, find what's in other people's bags very intriguing! Its a must see on Youtube, so many up & coming Youtubers film this as a video, so I thought I'd do my own blogpost version. Enjoy! 

The bagKate Spade Cobble Hill Straw Adrien (small version here, more affordable straw bucket bag here)

This bag was a special gift from my mother and I'm sure I'm going to wear it to death! Organic material has been a huge summer trend, so this straw bag is right on point. I love that its paired with white to give it a really clean and classic look. The size is perfect to serve as an everyday bag I can use for errands where I seem to continuously stuff my bag with receipts, purchases, etc. And I love that it has a shoulder strap for when I need both hands or it gets too heavy! It's just summer perfection as a bag!

These is everything I keep in my bag! If you don't know me very well you might find it surprising that I keep it so well organized and void of trash or any loose change, but I swear this is unedited! I'm a bit of a neat freak! 

The big pocket: This is what you see as soon as you unzip the bag. 

Sony DSC-QX10: This was a birthday gift from my husband a few years back. It's a lens that's basically its own camera. It connects with your phone via wifi and you are ready to take high quality photos anywhere directly from your phone! 

Aldo Sunglass Case: Love these with a summery print for only $10! 

Sunglasses: I bought these for $15 at kiosk in my local mall (Sunny Planet) because they are identical to the Dior So Real sunglasses which are around $560! 

Mexican makeup bag: I bought this adorable little pouch while we were in Mexico for our honeymoon. I love the colors of it and that it's the perfect size to store the few makeup bits I carry with me but most of all, I love it because it reminds me of our honeymoon. More details bellow! 

Coach wallet: I bought this around two years ago at the outlet store at Viejo San Juan and it was a great deal! I highly recommend visiting any of their outlet stores if you're searching for a new wallet!

Umbrella: I received this umbrella in a Popsugar Must Have Box. I love that its polka dot (like this one) but wish it was a bit smaller. 

The makeup bag

Neutrogena Shine Control Powder: This is a must have if you have oily skin! I apply this during the day if I start to feel shiny using the little Bare Minerals brush pictured.

Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Concealer: This concealer is AMAZING! It is so thin yet has so much coverage! I love it for touching up my undereyes or that random spot! I use this with the Sephora Classic Mini Multitasking Brush pictured. 

L'oreal Balm in Innocent Coral: As I mentioned in my Five Minute Face post, I love a natural face with coral lips and this is one of my go to's. Sadly, I couldn't find it online but this seems like it would give a similar effect.

Neutrogena Lip Balm: I bought this lip balm because it has a slight tint to it and its nearly the exact color of my own natural lips. Try these of you're looking for something similar!

The hair ties, bobby pin, and a safety pin are pretty self explanatory: I'm a girl!

The pockets: This bag has 3 pockets on the inside and the flap in front opens up to another pocket where I keep my phone (there's also a flap with a pocket in the back!).

Fan: I have this on me always! Especially in the summer when it gets so scorching hot and humid here in Puerto Rico!

Rifle Paper Co. phone case: I adore Rifle Paper Co. phone cases! Their designs are unique, flirty and feminine and so durable! My phone has never had a broken screen or any issues and I drop it a lot (knock on wood!)!

Other: Purell Hand Sanitizer, OFF! Mosquito Repellent (I love this small travel size but I can't find it anywhere anymore and I'm almost running out! If anyone knows where I could repurchase this please let me know!), Kleenex, and Eos Hand Lotion.
