What's in my bag | Spring Edition

What to carry in your purse
It's been over a year since I've done a "What's in my bag" post and I'll be honest, these are some of my favorite ones to read - so I thought why not share what's in my newest tote for Spring. You saw the tote itself on my post last week and it was a fluke find at TJ Maxx a couple months ago!! 
Work Purse
What to have in your purse
I've been really good about only keeping what I need in my bag so it's not too heavy - which tends to happen with totes! So here's what I carry around on a daily basis//
Kate Spade Wallet
Wallet || Business Card Holder || Keys // The Kate Spade wallet was a purchase in Charleston last year and I absolutely love how big it is and surprisingly everything has it's place so it doesn't get cluttered. My business card holder also doubles as my wallet when I have smaller purses or clutches. This was a gift from Gary for my birthday when we were in Dubai. I only keep my T (train) pass, small photo of my nieces and nephew & Gary's business card in my key pouch.   
Charging Cable
Phone || Lighting Cable || Back Up Charger // My MIL purchased this lighting cable for me and it's perfectly sized! I also don't have to worry about other cables because it fits perfectly into my portable charger. Funny story about these portable chargers - I used to have this really pretty one from ban.do, but it would always fall out and not keep the charge, so I started using these swag ones you get at conferences and they work like a charm! I also have to tell you about these little bobino cord wraps. I bought this for Gary three years ago as a little stocking stuffer and lover it so much that I ended up buying myself one too! It's super handy and my earbuds never get tangled anymore! 
Pink Notebooks
Notebook || Planner & Pens // Ever since downsizing to one notebook for blog & business I've got so much more room (and it's less heavier too) - I also downsized my planner last August to be more compact and I'll tell you that this is the longest I've gone with one planner in a few years! As much as I love TJ Maxx for regular notebooks, I gravitate to Paper Source for notebooks and planners that I know I'll use for longer/for business.   
Lipstick pouch
The amount of lipsticks/glosses I carry with me on a daily basis is obscene - even worse I not only have them in my GiGi NY zip pouch, but I keep the ones I use the most frequently in the side pocket! I also keep a small fragrance with me for those touch ups after the gym or before going out after work (which really doesn't happen that often haha). I really like the light scent of Tender Romance and it reminds me of vacation, which a welcome smell while at work! 
accessories to have in your purse

I carry santizer gel since I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a germaphobe and I also have tissues with me because it's allergy season and pollen tends to not agree with me! After years of not carrying headache medicine with me, I've learned my lesson and always have bottle! I also have a these little nail polish remover pads because I can't stand it when my nails are chipped so this easily removes them and they don't have that offensive nail polish remover smell which is always nice! 
planner for purse
The heaviest thing in the tote is my iPad...sadly this is a necessary evil since I commute I like to read magazines and books. I'm still loving my cover / keyboard, but keep the keyboard portion at home when I'm not travelling. 
what to carry for worse
Odd items that you might also find, but not currently in there are kind bars and extra pairs of earrings that I take off during the day and forget to take out!! Funny enough during the work week I rarely take my sunglasses with me, which is why they aren't pictured here! What are some things you carry on the daily? Anything you carry that isn't needed?

  1. Such a fun post! I love how bright and colorful everything is in your bag! Sunglasses , as well as my actual glasses, are a must-have for me.

  2. Love this, I keep the frequent used lip products in my side pocket too and throw my earrings in sometimes and forget about them!! I love how colorful all your goodies are plus then they are easy to spot down in the bag when you need something. ;-)

  3. This is such a fun post! I will have to do one too! I have the Erin Condren planner and it's so heavy to carry every day but I do it anyways. If I could break up with it I would get a smaller and lighter one, but I love my EC one too much. Love that you carry your iPad with you too--I do that sometimes!

  8. Still obsessing over that beautiful bag! Love that Gary got you a business card holder, I definitely need one to hold my own but also when I collect others instead of throwing them into a small pocket. Such a great idea <3

  9. Your bag is insanely organized and very colorful ;-) I try once a week to go through and declutter mine. Those receipts seem to take on a life of their own sometimes.

  12. Gorgeous bag!! And I'm loving all the fun, bright colors! Someday I'll have a cute bag full of anything but diapers and fruit snacks again, HA! But I'll never again go without wipes in my bags.... you can use those baby's on ANYTHING and everything, ha ha!

  13. Always fun to read posts like this!! I think I really need to get a bigger bag though – I use mine for work and with two notebooks and a computer, everything is always so crammed and hard to get to!

  17. Fun post!! That bag is super cute and I love all of your other colorful "storage items!" hehe. :-) I always have lip products, tissues, and Advil. I am also a huge germaphobe and I wash my hands all of the time. I'm sorry but when you ride public transportation you need to be!! Haha. Thanks for sharing lady and have a great day!! :-)

  18. Cute! I love all of your little pouches! Hand sanitizer and head meds might be the most important!

  23. High five for a fellow germaphobe & hand sanitizer. I usually keep 2 in my purse in case I loose one - haha!

  24. You've inspired me to get a cardholder! There are wayyyy too many cards in my wallet. I never even thought to get one before. Love this post!!

  25. You have the happiest and brightest bag I've ever seen! I've been loving my Kate Spade wallet (I think it's the same as yours) that I got for my birthday because it's big and holds everything. I still want that tassel charger!

  26. First off love your bag! What a great find. The more I put into my bag the more I'm realizing a newer one is much needed xo Beautifully Candid

  27. These posts are always so fun! I really need to get a business card holder. I have them in a little pocket on the inside of my tote, but a card holder would make things so much easier!

  28. You are my go-to girl, Biana! You ALWAYS inspire me with your posts, giving me so many ideas and introducing me to so many different products and resources. I need to get those Absolute Nail Polish Removers, they're so cute and compact and it's great to know that they not only lack that offensive scent, they're acetone free, too! I love all your pretty pouches and wallets, so fab! Thanks so much for sharing, I really enjoyed this post, beautiful! I hope you have the best day ahead!

  36. I love finding out what's in people's bags!! I feel like I want to do one too, as my bag has changed quite a big since I last did one.

    I want to get a larger wallet, but then I don't like having to carry such a big wallet when it's just that and not a purse. I still love that charger! I have a portable charger but I keep forgetting to put it back in my purse charged haha.

  38. It is always fun to see what others are carrying in their bags on a daily basis. I myself decided last week that I am lugging around way too much and need to purge! No one needs 10 lip glosses at one time. LOL.

  39. LOVE this bag! It's a great tote for the office - the color is divine! I too carry so many things in my bag for day. Planner, small make-up bag, Ipad, Kindle, ... the list goes on! And I have an entire bag of just lip gloss! :) XO

  44. I was totally just thinking that I haven't done a whats in my bag type post in forever too! I love how you keep everything in a little pouch. So much more organized that way. (:

  45. I don't know if it's possible for a woman to not carry multiple things of lipsticks and lipglosses around with her! I don't even reapply multiple times a day, and I have like 4 or 5 in purse! An iPad is definitely a necessary evil for a commute! I would be bored without mine!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow you have a lot of stuff in that bag! I admit, I'm the same way...and then I complain of my shoulder hurting! Erik always says my bag is a weapon with how heavy it is! I love your business card holder!

  47. I LOVE reading what's in my bag posts! Your bag is so cute and you are incredibly organized! I carry WAY WAY too much with because I have a long commute I always feel like I need EVERYTHING, even though I probably only use about 30% of what I bring. Love this! XO -Kim

  48. I always like seeing what's in everyone's bags too! I'm guilty of overloading my totes to and from work, but I've been trying to do better about carrying less. I never go anywhere without my planner, at least one notebook and a variety of fun pens ;)

  53. I love scoring beautiful purses like that at Marshall's and TJ Max...looks like I pack pretty much the same things into my purse except sunglasses are essential for everyday wear here.

  54. that bag is so pretty, what a great tj maxx find! love when that happens. i'll have to check out the nail polish remover pads, so handy. and i'm with you on the tissues! i freak out if i don't have tissues close by.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yours is so pretty!!! Mine is legit a crumple of stuff. Kind of oriented in the same sphere as the stuff you have but it ends up one thing of mumbo jumbo. Love that you have many lipsticks etc with u as well. Me always!
