Friends ask me all the time why I’m always carrying such large totes instead of smaller clutches. The answer is honestly, I LIVE out of my purse! Of course there are times when I don’t need to tote my life around and choose a cute little bag (like me new one from Neiman’s). USWeekly is doing a #WhatsInMyBag giveaway on social media and I thought, what better time to share???
A pair of Havaianas Flip Flops is pretty much always on hand just in case. You never know when a pair of heels may start to pinch or a stop at the beach may occur! My Hobo Lauren wallet is a staple. It holds all my cards, cash, business cars, and can easily transition to a clutch if may daytime look transitions to the evening.
My tablet has started traveling EVERYWHERE with me! Since there are times that blog ideas come to me at the most random time it’s a life saver! A notebook is always on had as well to jot down notes for work calls or brainstorm future posts. I love reading and still frequent the library for a new read each week. The book of choice is almost always on hand for those quiet moments at a coffee shop. This week’s read? A Room With A View.
My ear buds for my iPhone are a God send! I take the train quite a bit between LA and San Diego and these little guys allow me to listen to music, watch Netflix, or have a hands free convo on my iPhone. Never leave home without them! Sunnies are also never forgotten! These Chanel glasses have been a staple in my life for about 4 years now and if it’s not these it’s one of my many other pairs!
Other must haves include my Eos lip balm to fight the chapped lips of the dry weather, my Pacifica roll on fragrance from Kitson, lotion (this one is from The Pearl Hotel in Point Loma and smells like heaven!), and Advil! I always have my portable phone charger with me for those emergencies, there’s never an outlet when you need one! This particular one was part of the Coachella Music Lounge gifting suite. Kind Bars or almonds come everywhere with me, I get all kinds of HANGRY (READ: so hungry I become angry) if I’m hungry, no one enjoys that! My favorite is the Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt for a little sweet snack that is still healthy and full of protein.
Oh, and that blue butterfly on my keys? That poor little guy has been on my keys since I was in my early 20s (and was a favorite distraction of my friends baby who is now 9!) and used to be the prettiest blue leather from Coach. Now it’s just a discolored version of it’s former self that I can’t bring myself to part with.
