What’s In My Bag + A Giveaway

by
Radley Purse Bag Giveaway

Radley Hope Place Bag

Thank you Radley for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I am a huge fan of seeing what kind of every day bags girls carry. We all have our own style and preferences for the size and type of bag we use and that is fascinating to me! Some girls literally carry like nothing and can fit it all into one tiny little clutch. I am amazed at your skill if you are this girl. I wish I could be you! I aim to be minimalistic but I end up always shoving stuff into the small bag and being frustrated when I have to take everything out to find a pen.

Satchel type bags are the way to go for me. This one from Radley is right up my alley. It’s chic enough that it goes with a dressy outfit, but also functional that it zips all the way up and can be worn as a crossbody. It holds a lot and even has a nice slip pocket where the front handle meets. I love to be able to slide my phone in there for meetings. Seriously y’all I love this bag! It reminds me of a few I’ve gotten from Target over the years, but the quality on this just exudes. Sometimes you get a new handbag and you feel like you could conquer the world. That’s how this one makes ya feel! Radley obviously doesn’t just carry satchels so whatever the type of bag you are drawn to they have a variety! If you’re in the market for a new bag check them out!

What's In My Bag Purse

So whats in my bag? Lots of things but all kept in well organized little pouches. I love having small bags that hold like items together and they make it a lot easier when transferring from purse to purse. Haley talks about them for travel which is totally another great use for them! As I tell you what’s in my bag, I will also tell you what I keep together.

Keys and Wallet

Obviously those are kind of a must. I prefer small wallets. In college I carried all my cards in a little pouch on my keys and now I just can’t help but like small ones. This one is from amazon and I love how it still has the ID place and enough space for all my cards. Not to mention the price!

On my keys I keep this small little Doterra carrying case for essential oils. It’s small and not bulky and I like having the little sample sizes with me at all times (keep reading I have a pouch with bigger ones too). I also have this little key chain I got from Birchbox forever ago that holds chap stick. Amazon has some similar options too. I love that at times I can simply grab my keys and small wallet and head out the door for any quick errand.

Medicine and Beauty Products

In my biggest pouch I carry a small pill bottle with a mix of useful meds; ibuprofen, tums, sudafed, etc. I also put in my elf blotting sheets (don’t want to be oily!), some powder and a travel brush, and the Mario Badescu rose water facial spray. It’s a nice little pick me up for your face on long days.

Something else that you’ll always find in my bag is a variety of lip products! These Revlon Balm Stains have been my favorite for awhile now. I have the shades Honey and Adore. I wear Adore all the time! It’s not sticky and glides on smooth. Another new favorite is the Kiehl’s Butterstick. It feels like a chapstick but gives you a little bit of color. It also has SPF in it which is a big bonus for me!

Last Two Pouches

My other last two pouches hold feminine products and essential oils. I always usually carry some tampons with me (gotta be prepared). The blends of oils that I carry is a women’s blend called Clary Calm, a great headache blend PastTense, and then a calming blend I made myself.

Random Items

The last few things that are in my bag are usually zipped into the side pocket. My headphones, a portable charger, and some pens. Also living in Southern California I can’t go anywhere without my sunglasses.

    I should carry no-oil sheets! I always regret it when I’m at school after. A couple hours and the oil is real. I absolutely love the bag! Great idea about pouches too, I always just throw everything in and it’s so hard to find things inside when I’m running around during the day. Thanks girl!

      Oh my gosh you need them! Also you should check out my oily skin blog post. I have some tips on how to deal with it during the day. The stuff in that post has helped me so much!

    Lipstick, a phone charger and hand cream are essentials! Usually there’s about 20 different lipsticks though.

    So fun! I always say when you se what a girl carries in her purse, you see her secrets. I started carrying a small backpack lately and I love the convenience of being hands free, but I miss my cute little totes for style purposes!! Thanks for sharing girl!

      I totally want a small backpack to carry for when I travel. I think they are so convenient.
