IT’S ALL IN THE BAG…

One common quality across women from all around the World is that we all have a tendency to carry a handbag.  Whether big, small, designer, off-price, it doesn’t even matter, a lady needs her essentials.  My day to day is often so different, so it’s hard to really say in one setting that the contents within my bag ever really stays the same.  I travel often and attend various business meetings, so I try to make sure I have the most important items with me.  On any random day, the assortment of items in my bag can change significantly.  Here’s an example of a bag I used for a day out running some personal errands. 

First off, I wore a vintage Dolce & Gabbana chocolate brown leather handbag with an embossed detailing.  If you know me, you know that I like the finer things in life, so of course I keep a pair of designer frames to protect me from the Sun.  In this case, it was a multi-colored pair of Prada sunglasses with the perfect tint in the lenses.  To keep my lips moisturized, I’ve recently started using Restoration Skincare‘s great Lip Cream made with all-natural ingredients.  I then pair it with a pop of color from my lipstick provided by Lime Crime, and some light powder foundation from Max Studio for quick touch-ups on the go.  I also love accessories, and sometimes I might want to have options.  I had two bracelets in my bag that I could wear interchangeably with my outfit that day:  one was a beautiful decorative bangle by Hermes and the second was a beaded gemstone bracelet from a wearable wellness brand I discovered while in L.A. called Awaken the Peace.  For peace of mind, it doesn’t hurt to have a little extra Vitamin C in your life, so I keep a pack of Emergen-C handy if necessary.  If I have some time to myself during a stroll, I might want to listen to music, so I go for a pair of limited edition MCM branded Beats by Dre headphones.  Lastly, I make sure to have a good notebook and pen available to write down different thoughts as they come to me.

Like I said, the assortment changes so quickly based on my fast-paced lifestyle, so who knows what might be in my bag next week or even tomorrow.  In any case, I’d love to hear what your daily bag essentials are.  Leave a comment below with some of your favorite items!  Hope to hear from you.

 Love Abi,

  • First off, every girl loves her bag. That said I love to have a bit of my daily essentials so I pack a mini make up bag with an eyeliner, lip balm, versatile lipsticks in two shades for options(by the way, I’m loving the matte looks from Charlotte Tilbury) and powder for that touch up. A hand sanitizer and wipes to keep my hands clean throughout the day. The Body shop Hemp hand protector for extra moisture between washes. Totally leaves my palms feeling all baby soft. My Seretide diskus inhaler and a can of Wrigley’s gum (bubblegum flavor) or Altoids.A bottle of water and I’m off to a great start. I can’t go without my mini journal to capture all those tiny but really important notes and a recent copy of Glamour magazine.

    PS. Currently reading ‘The Son of Hamas’ and it’s been a great read so far.
