What's In My Bag?!

Since there's been a huge lack of outfit posts lately (blame the fact that my computer bit the dust), I decided to snap a few photos of what's in my bag using my trusty iPhone.

I got the idea for this post when I looked into my bag the other day & noticed I had not one, not two, but three pairs of sunglasses in it. How ridiculous is that?! I would say I have a slight obsession with sunnies. In my bag I have a tortoise shell plastic pair of Ray Bans, a black plastic pair of Diors & my newest pair, black Burberry aviators. Sunnies are like shoes, you can't wear the same pair with every outfit- you need options!

Anywho, I also carry a Kate Spade day planner. Since my work schedule isn't consistent, I had to get something to up. Obviously, I had to have something pink & stylish. Whenever I have cash, I keep it in my Hobo International wallet. I love the gold metallic color. I keep my keys, ID & cards in my Michael Kors card holder/keychain (which I actually broke today & will be in need of something similar). Although, I can't upload any pictures at this time, I always carry my Nikon digital camera with me. Never know when I'll need to snap some shots.

I don't typically carry any makeup with me, but the day I took these pics, my two fav products where inside my bag- lip gloss & mascara. I love the texture of this Nars lip gloss in Orgasm. This peach color is universally flattering & not too sticky. The other product in my bag is DiorShow, which is the best mascara ever!

The bag I was carrying this day is a Michael Kors Jet Set Tote. Although this bag is huge, I can fit all these contents into my Kate Spade Blaine, as well as my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30.

Now that I've shared what's in my bag, what's in yours?!

New: Sephora

Well, I finally got around to having my Internet setup/fixed today. I hadn't blogged in so long & couldn't wait to get back to it. Get this, my very old MacBook Pro has decided to kick the big one. Now I have two new problems 1) I am now paying for Internet I cannot use & 2) I now need a new computer. If anyone would like to make a donation to get me a new Apple, it'd be greatly appreciated lol.

Anyway, onto my post. About a month ago I went on a mini shopping trip to Sephora. I needed a few things; not really but who cares.

The main reason I went into this store was to find a setting spray. I'm the queen of transferring makeup onto other people's clothing accidentally when hugging- not cool. I found this Urban Decay one & couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend it!

Next I picked up a blush/bronzer duo by Sephora. I usually take the time to put on my blush then bronzer separator, using two different brushes. So this duo seemed practical. I do like it, but no bronzer is better then Nara Laguna. I was also low on mascara & had to get a fresh tube of DiorShow. This is seriously one of the best mascaras I've ever used. Actually it's the only one I will use.

The best purchase of the day; however, was the Clarisonic Mia 2. I've posted about wanting this face brush for soooo long & I finally bit the bullet & got it! Best. Decision. EVER! I've had other brushes in the past, but this one is by far the best.

While at the register, I was informed I qualified for a 500 beauty point prize. I didn't like the big prize, so I used 100 beauty points to get this Clinique Pore Serum. I typically forget I even have this & I've only used it once. If I remember to use it, I'll let you know how or if it works.

Have you done any beauty hauls recently?! Let me know!!
