What's In My Purse/My Essentials

hey y'all!

so I wanted to switch things up a bit and do some more lifestyle/fun posts, so I thought a "what's in my purse" post would be fun. :) I also really needed to clean out my purse...let's be real for a second! 

The purse I use right now, and most often, is my Marley Lilly monogrammed cross body bag. I adore this bag and its perfect for everyday use. It fits a lot, but not to the point where its excessive or too heavy. It also has the cutest little tassel on the zipper, which is an added bonus. So, onto the contents!

1. The essentials.
The first thing in my bag are the essentials, like my car keys, ID, and wallet. I have a lanyard and a Vera Bradley ID holder that has my keys on it, and then a matching wallet, also from Vera Bradley. They are leftover from high school, and I definitely need to invest in a "big girl" wallet, but they get the job done and are functional. ;) I also have my favorite gum, Extra Polar Ice, a pair of headphones, and usually my phone if I am running out the door.

2. Lip products.
The most important (and most numerous) item in my bag are my plethora of lip products. My go-to is the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Embrace. Over top I love one of two NYX glosses -- one is a butter gloss in "Angel Food Cake" and one is their regular line of lip gloss, in the color "Beige". I also keep a mini perfume for the humidity/heat in case I need to freshen up while I'm on the go. My current fav is "Forever Red" which actually comes from Bath and Body Works!

3. Snacks. 
Probably the next most crucial item in my purse is my snacks. I love snacks, and I am just about always hungry it seems! I love Cuties or clementines, because they are sweet and a healthy fruit option, but they don't go bad quickly and are durable in case they end up smushed at the bottom of my purse. I also love protein/power bars with nuts and peanut butter or something like that! I recently bought a couple Luna Bars to try, and they are pretty good and insanely filling!

4. Journal/pens.
I am always writing, and definitely prefer having written to-do lists or jotting things down into a journal, so I just about always have one on hand for my random post ideas, things to do, etc. I also love the Penmate Flair pens...they are a life changer! I always write with these when I can. :)

5. Sunglasses.
I am kind of a sunglass hoarder, so I tend to have at least one pair with me at all times. I got this pair shown in the photos recently from Marshall's, which is one of my favorite places to get affordable sunglasses! I have this Ray-Bans case which I use for any pair that I am currently wearing, but the ones I showed are not Ray-Bans. 

That just about covers everything in this post! I hope y'all enjoyed this fun twist instead of an outfit post everyday. :) If you have any ideas or posts you would like to see, be sure to let me know in a comment down below! Thanks for reading and hope you have a fabulous Monday.
