Over the last couple of years, I’ve really streamlined the contents of my purse. Because seriously, who has time to haul around a ten pound bag full of stuff that barely gets used? However, there are a few things that I just can’t live without that you’ll find in my purse. So, if you’re curious as to what I tote around on the daily, keep on scrolling boo.
1. Burt’s Bees Lipbalm // Ulta
I 100% have an emotional dependency on lip-balm (it’s a real thing, google it) and start to feel a bit anxious if one isn’t near. LOL, seriously. The OG mint version is great, but personally I love the wild cherry & vanilla bean versions
2. Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Lipgloss in “Pink Pearl” // Sephora
This lipgloss literally looks amazing on top of any lipstick or just by itself! If you’re looking for something from the drugstore the NYX Lip Plumper Gloss in “Liv” is a great option as well as Maybelline Sensational Color Elixir Gloss in “Nude Illusion.” For more nude lip picks check out my post Top 3 Nude Lipsticks
3. L’Occitane Hand Cream // Sephora
I have not found a better hand cream out there! This one is enriched with shea butter which absorbs super quickly, and doesn’t leave your hands oily AF. Not to mention they are perfectly sized just for your purse, they even make extra small baby sizes for travel!
4. Mini Hairbrush // Forever 21
This lil cutie has a mirror compact built into it as well which is so handy! I like the collapsable aspect that this mini purse brush offers because exposed bristles just tend to attract purse crumbs. Ain’t nobody got time for purse crumbs!
5. Invisibobble Hair Ring // Sephora
There’s nothing worse than scrambling around for a hair tie (which usually happens when you need one the most) I love these because they don’t leave any creases in your hair and are great for girls with super thick hair like myself!
Always nice to have for when a headache or period cramps from hell show up. There is also potential for you to be that hero friend that saves the day with a liqui-gel ;)!
7. S’well Bottle // Urban Outfitters
These are the best water bottles ever! They have so many cute designs (marble yasssss) & colours and are double-coated to keep your liquids cold for 24 hours or hot for 12. They are also non-toxic, non-leaching + BPA free 😉.
8. RXBAR’s // Whole Foods
Anybody who knows me well knows that I am not a nice person when I am hungry. Snacks are a major key. lately I’ve been obsessed with RXBAR’s which are so delicious and protein packed. They list all the ingredients boldly on the front of the package which tells you exactly what you’re getting! You gotta nourish, to flourish y’all!
9. Ban.do Planner // Urban Outfitters
Staying organized is so much easier when you have a cute planner to keep track of important dates/appointments. How cute are these ban.do pens?
10.Extra Long iPhone Cable // Amazon
I think we’ve all been that person that plugs their phone in two tables away at starbucks because their isn’t a closer outlet. The extra long cords (2 meters) are convenient AF! But the ultimate hack? I always bring a 12W charging cube (the one that comes with an iPad) because it will charge your phone twice as fast.
11. Henri Bendel Mini Umbrella// Henri Bendel
Because Vancouver. LOL. Sad but true. Even when it’s been sunny with clear skies for the whole day, torrential downpour could start at any time. It’s always best to keep a mini umbrella ready to go.
12. Bon Ton Nano Luxury Dog Waste Bag Dispenser // Amazon
Ugh. Okay. If you’re a pet owner, you know the feeling when you realize you forgot to bring clean up bags. I always have this clipped into my bag and it’s saved me from having to use a random napkin or old receipt (dog people know what I mean) Also, I just feel like the crystals make picking up poo far less dreadfull. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.
