Vacation Edition: What’s In My Purse?

IMG_2725.JPG

If I’m being totally honest, I always have random knick knacks in my purse almost everyday, that could be from receipts to candy wrappers. But who am I to blame? I cleaned out my purse and left the things that I always need.

I have received multiple compliments for my purse, either they love the style or the fringes so I wanted to share what designer this bag is. This is a Stella Mccartney purse, I have had it for quite some time now, still in good condition and shape. Even though it is quite small, it fits almost everything I need.

I can never go anywhere without my wallet, sometimes we would be driving around and would end up in a plaza. My parents would ask if I wanted to go and shop but I can’t, number one, I don’t have my cards with me. I like to pay for myself, especially when signing I just feel so much older. Number two, I have to have my member ID’s.

I got my wallet two to three years ago for my birthday, it’s Prada (If you couldn’t tell already) and it’s camo. I have also received a lot of lovely comments for my wallet and it always makes me so happy.

I need my travel size perfumes, or as my brain likes to say, “Portable Perfumes”. These are such an essential if you love going to restaurants, because I almost always leave the restaurant smelling like I was cooking the food. A few sprays of this and I’m good to go.

I get my “Portable Perfumes” from Victoria’s Secret. They have a ton of amazing scents and great deals for them too. This scent is called Exotic. You know that I live for packaging, and this one is definitely a 10/10.

If you’re in a car with two screaming brothers, then you need ear or head phones. I do not recommend getting from Target because quality does not reach my expectations. I still stick with them anyway because I only use them for the car.

I use these from listening to my friend’s weird voice messages, to watching fail Instagram videos. (I’m addicted.) Speaking of Instagram, make sure you go and follow me on there, currently trying to fix my feed and theme so don’t mind the mess. (@thechicommunity)

Cold or no cold, I have to carry around some lip balm(s). I carry around two because why not, one for the sun (It has SPF 50) and the EOS lip balm. In my opinion I think the stick ones work way better than the original ball ones.

I got the one with the SPF 50 from Anthropologie, and the EOS from Target. (My home). I was mindlessly putting on 50 layers of the EOS lip balm, total waste, don’t do that.

That is it for today’s post, hope you have a great Sunday and I’ll see you on Tuesday!

 

What’s In My Louis Vuitton?

IMG_1930.JPG

I usually don’t carry a lot of stuff in my bag, I only like to carry things that I know I will be needing throughout the day. My first thought when picking out a purse is, “Will it match with every outfit I wear?” I am a very lazy person so I usually have this bag ready to go on my vanity chair.

First up is my wallet, I have to have it with me at all times. You never know when a cute store just comes out of no where and you want to buy everything. My wallet is from Prada, and I think I got it for my birthday a couple of years ago.

I have two packs of gum, one of the packs only has like one piece left. Gotta carry gum everywhere with me, who knows I’ll bump into someone I know right after I ate garlic bread. My go to gum is the 5 gum. All the flavors are amazing. I love the green and blue colors the most.

While still on the subject of fresh and clean, I like to carry around my hand sanitizer they’re usually from Bath and Body works. The current one that I’m using is Vampire Blood. Smells nothing like Vampire Blood though, smells more like strawberries.

I don’t know about you guys but when I wash my hands or use the hand sanitizer, my hands always get dry. So I have been using Hand Food by Soap and Glory, loving this product so far, it really does what its supposed to do.

Always gotta carry around oil blotting sheets, especially during the summer. I have talked about this one too many times on this blog so I’m not going to go into too much depth but this is my life saver. I get mine from Sephora, I like the original ones, not those new colorful shiny ones.

Last but certainly not least I have my lip balm. During the winter I think everyone can relate that our lips tend to get dry, and it’s not the g=best thing in the world. I am not a huge fan of the EOS sphere balms, but the EOS stick lip balms work amazing. I don’t know what’s the difference, but the stick ones in my opinion work way better.

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

What’s In My Skincare Bag?

I have seen a lot of posts talking about what is in their makeup bag, but I have never seen a what’s in my skincare bag. Maybe some don’t even have a skincare bag, but I do. I always go to my beach house every weekend, and I like to pack a few things before I leave.

I’ll usually start with packing my face cleanser or wash first. If I am looking for something simple to pack, then I’ll just get the oil free acne wash from Clean & Clear. I am not a huge fan of the scent, but it helps clean and freshen your face up. If you know any other simple face cleansers, please tell me because I’m looking for new ones to try out.

Then I’ll pack my toner and eye cream. I have been using this toner for a while, I really like it. It helps to control blemishes and spots. This product as well helps to freshen up my face, I like to use this in the morning because it helps to wake me up by how cool it is.

The eye cream is from bare minerals, I don’t really need an eye cream, but the packaging was too cute. I just love the feeling of it anyway.

Then lastly, I will pack up my moisturizer and my anti spot gel. Yesterday I talked about this in my 3 ways to prevent zits, so I’m not going to go into detail about that. I like this moisturizer, especially during the summer  because it’s light. My skin tends to get oily during the summer, but places near my nose always dry up, so this moisturizer is always great.

What’s In My School Bag?

school is almost ever, less than 20 days. i am the most happiest person ever, so to celebrate i wanted to share with you guys the bag that i used and what’s in it. some of the stuff are all torn up, and not in great condition because i have had them for a year. this bag i got from nordstrom, i am not a 100% sure, but they’re by MCM.

so first up is my huge binder. it’s probably 1-2 inches? i have no idea, but it is the best binder ever. it is recycled from paper and stuff which is great. all my subjects are kept in this binder. (all the papers and everything) i got this binder from target.

next is my paper folder? i’m not sure what they’re called, but it is as well from target. it is so cute and i  just had to buy it.

then i have my notebooks, like for creative writing, drama, and AFL, all that stuff. and then i have my book perks of being a wallflower, we are currently reading the book in english and i love it.

my pencil case, which i mentioned in my april favorites. the green thing is actually a flashcard holder. you put all your flashcards in it which i think is the best thing that i have ever bought in my life. i got it from target as well. then the black thing is my calculator that i have had since middle school. i love it, i’ve had it for about 4 years and it is still in great condition. and lastly the purple thing that is under my perks of being a wallflower book, it’s an agenda. i note down all my homework and tests and quizzes, which helps me to keep organized.

i don’t really carry around beauty things, because i honestly don’t care. i get reading in 5 minutes and leave the house. i aint trying to impress anyone. i would just carry around hand sanitizer because the school is gross and just filled with germs.

thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. all the love.
