What's In My Bag + New Hair


If you didn't already notice, "what's in my bag" posts are pretty popular among us beauty bloggers these days. I have seen my good blogger friend J (who has an amazing style!) over at Lil Lady's Life do this tag recently and I knew right then and there I must *steal* this idea :)

I don't know about you but I absolutely love the what's in my bag, makeup bag, suitcase and even fridge type of posts! I don't think it's nosy to wonder what sorts of things people have in these places, it's in human nature!

My bag is from Target, I bought it about 4 months ago when I had a liiiitttttle obsession with crossbody/messenger type of bags. I just love its color, shape, size and versatility. It goes with almost all of my daily outfits! It's a great everyday bag and honestly even though I love it a lot, I won't be terrified if I spill something on it or something unexpected happens to it.

Grey Bag
I don't use a wallet for one reason - I'm simply sick of taking out my driver's license and debit card/cash from my wallet to put it in this bag every single night when going to the gym. Because after coming back I have to put all of these things back into the wallet and sometimes I just forget. I lost count of how many times I've realized I was driving around without my driver's license or money!

Phone
Surprise surprise! My phone goes everywhere with me. I don't want to imagine life without my iPhone.

Phone charger
I like to think ahead and I also hate seeing I have 5% battery left so to avoid that my charger goes everywhere with me as well.

Band-aids 
You never know.

Contact lens case/Glasses
These two items are total must-haves for me. I've been wearing contacts for 13 years and I don't even remember how many times a contact lens ripped while on my eye and I had to walk around with just one contact on. It's not even funny. In fact if your vision is -3.00 like mine it's seriously not funny. I like to be prepared just in case my contacts don't feel like doing their job that day and tear apart. So I can easily switch to glasses.

Polka dot pouch
I take thyroid medicine 3 times/day with meals so I carry my pills in this little pouch just in case I'm out for a meal.

Sunglassess
I wear them year round. This particular pair is from Tory Burch if you're interested. I love that they're huge and cover a good chunk of my face, love this style!

Keys
Self explanatory.

And here is my new hair. Just chopped off about 2 inches, nothing drastic. I love that the layers are more noticeable now and I think it's safe to say that I have found "the one", as in the hairdresser I will be going to from now on. Very happy with the results and I always love a hairdresser that can chat, really knows hair and has a great sense of humor. ;)


I don't know what happened to the lower part of my hair on the left photo, please try to ignore it :) It was taken after I got home and I think by the time I arrived home my hair was already frizzing up thanks to all of the 100 degrees today! O.o

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all had a great day! ♥

  3. Thanks for sharing what you carry in your bag, I love these type of posts too. Your hair is so lovely, I love the layers and you're right, very noticeable. I always carry band aids too because you never know. I saw that bag at Target a few times and when I was finally read to buy it, it was already gone. D'oh!

  6. Holy Moly...how can your hair even be real? It is SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I have hair envy for you now. Seriously you belong on a Pantene ad or something. Just wow.

    I love your bag and I love these kinds of posts/vids because I'm nosey like that :) I have seen that bag at Target and love it, I've been tempted about 100 times to buy the navy blue one. I'm convinced we would be at Target together every day if we lived close.

    Great hair!!! I know what you mean with the contacts! I am -2.50 and once when I was driving on the freeway one of my contacts decided to flip itself over...really not funny! haha I had to drive for a while before there was an emergency lane for me to put it back in.

  16. Having a great hairdresser that you trust is everything. I have been going to my same one for years and years and years. Loving the layers you got! Also, I got a cross-body type bag from Target in Feb. and it gets so much use and I can't believe how many people have asked me where I got the bag. Yours looks chic and like a total staple!

  17. Your hair looks amazing!
    I have really bad vision (-5.00) :'( and I just got contacts. I really hope my contacts don't flip over or tear. I always carry around my glasses and contacts case just in case of an emergency.

  20. I love reading and watching them, thank you! :)

  21. My hair was getting so long the layers looked like they weren't there, it was about time :) I think these bags were pretty popular and sold out fast - who knows maybe Target will bring them back for popular demand?? :)

  22. I had no idea Tory Burch even made sunglasses, I thought she was all about shoes and purses :)

  23. You and Az. always spoil me to the point of extremes :D Thanks for your sweet words hunni :) Oh I saw the navy one too, decided to sleep on it and well...it was gone! I love this cognac color too though! I ♥ Target, wish we lived close dammit!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you ;) Doesn't it just suck?? I love wearing contacts because I hate wearing glasses but it gets so annoying when they rip, flip or do all these random things so I take my case wherever I go :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh who knows but I always get excited when I see my favorite bloggers/vlogger do them, I could watch/read these posts all day :) Thanks so much!

  26. They would look absolutely glam on you! :)

  27. Isn't it so cute? It actually comes in a mirrored compact with solution bottle too, I love anything Hello Kitty - I'll never grow up :)

  28. Your welcome Miss J :) Haha damn right I do! No worries it's the mini size so it doesn't take so much space or kill my shoulder, and exactly hello I'm not the one who carries those 2 huge bottles in my purse I wonder who it is! :) You know how it is, you love something so much you have to bring it with you no matter what the circumstances are :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. Isn't it annoying? At this point I don't even care about owning a wallet, maybe when I have my own gym in my mansion one day I will own a wallet :D Thanks lady!

  30. I feel like a nerd carrying it around but what are you gonna do...I'd rather carry it than have a dead phone :) You should! :)

  31. Thanks love, oh yeah he is in fact he was like "I thought you were going to the hair salon" haha Men...
    Oh this one is a mini, hardly weighs anything. I love the scent so much I cannot part with it :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you! Oh God that is just crazy! It's funny that you never know when something like that will happen, it happens at the random-est times lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. Really is! It would help a lot if I actually lived in the same city more than few years, that's why it's been hard for me. Istanbul to Seattle to Chicago...Oh how I would love to have a steady hairdresser and say the same thing as you! Target does something magical to their bags, they don't even look like they're from Target right?? :)
