I shared the contents of my bag in this post a few years ago and thought it would be fun to do an update to see what has changed and what has stayed the same. I would say that more has stayed the same and the items here are pretty much my purse essentials.
This Lo & Son's Pearl Crossbody Bag has been my go-to purse for a few months now and I just love it. It's both compact and roomy at the same time and has a chic classic look that goes with just about anything I wear. I love that I can tote just my essentials but it can also easily accommodate my umbrella, camera or tablet as needed. This bag rocks!
Supergoop Forever Young Hand Cream: I always have a tube of hand cream in my bag and this is a current favorite since it effectively moisturizes and provides sun protection as well.
Koh Gen Do Refresh Skin Spray: This herbal lotion mist is a wonderful way to refresh and moisturize my skin on the go and I'm a big fan of facial sprays in general.
RESCUE Pastilles: Those of you who've been with me for awhile might remember when I was suffering from vertigo spells and tinnitus. This made me prone to anxiety attacks and I discovered RESCUE pastilles while checking out at Whole Foods one day. These natural and homeopathic pastilles made from flower extracts were developed by a doctor and really work to calm me down when a panic attack hits or when I'm feeling stressed. Since then I always carry a tin with me. They're particularly useful when I'm commuting and get stuck on a train or when traveling as being confined still gives me anxiety. The Black Currant flavor is my favorite and they're sugar-free too!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment: This lip treatment is a longstanding favorite of mine. It has the loveliest lemon scent and the SPF15 is nice as well.
TonyMoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar: Just looking at this little bunny makes me smile. It's a really cute tinted lip balm.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc Lip Gel in Role Play: This is my everyday lip color and it's my perfect lips but better shade. This was the lipstick I was wearing in my recent selfie.
RayBan Jackie Ohh Sunglasses: Sunglasses are a must on sunny days and even on some non-sunny ones.
See By Chloe Wallet: I like to keep it basic and compact with my wallet.
Envirosax Foldup Bag: I try to do the eco-conscious by carrying my own bag when I shop.
iPhone 6: This is a nice upgrade from the flip phone I was still using last year.
Tissues: Nothing special but a necessity.
Paul & Joe Blotting Papers: These blotting papers get the job done if my face gets shiny and there's a mirror inside the case.
Housekeys: Another necessity. My key tag is from Various Keytags and the camera charm was a gift from a friend.
