what's in my bag?


You can tell a lot about a gal by what she totes around in her bag on a daily basis. Here's a peek into mine:

1.) Celine trapeze bag: I think this bag may have officially turned me into a bag lady. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a shoe gal at heart, but I have a wandering eye...
2.) Yves Saint Laurent cat eye sunglasses: I'm a big sucker for tortoiseshell and cat eye shapes when it comes to sunglasses. This pair had me at hello.
3.) Proenza Schouler wallet: I'm obsessed with this wallet as it doubles as a chic clutch when necessary!
4.) Michael Kors watch: Glued to my wrist.
5.) Notebook: I always have a small notebook on me for jotting down random ideas, addresses, stores or places I pass and want to go back and visit. Remnant of my days as a reporter. 
6.) The Perks of Being a Wallflower: You'll rarely catch me without a book -- I enjoy my downtime during my work commute with a good page turner. While I finished Perks a while back now, I'm making my way onto Cloud Atlas -- have any of you read it yet? Thoughts?
7.) The New Yorker: My sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas last year -- I told her a subscription to The New Yorker. Hands down, still one of my favorite gifts! (Thanks sis!)
8.) Android phone: My other left arm. Can't function without it!
9.) Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick: A moisturizing light lipstick, perfect for daytime wear.
10.) Chanel compact: Touch ups on the go -- comes in handy when you're running from a late work meeting to happy hour, which I often am. 
11.) L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes: I'm a mascara junkie and like trying new kinds often. I recently got hooked on this particular one by L'Oreal and love how dramatic they make my lashes look.  
12.) Hugo Naturals Hand Sanitizer: French lavender scented and great for travel. 

Now that I've shared mine -- do tell! What's in your bag?

  5. I tried reading cloud atlas and had to stop because I couldn't keep anything straight. i think i might try again after I see the movie, even though that will go against everything i've ever believed in!

  19. I read Cloud Atlas last year and enjoyed it, although at times it was hard to get through. I've heard the movie isn't that great, but I still want to see it as I think having read the book, it will be a little easier to follow the plot! I also have Perks on my desk right now, but haven't had any time to start it. That's my goal for this holiday so then I can go see the movie as well!

  26. I'm the exact same way with notebooks. Been that way since I was a kid. I can have all of the tech gadgets I own with me, but I'll still always choose my notebook and my pen to make lists, take notes and write reminders. So I'm constantly buying new, cute notebooks for all of my bags.

  27. Always my Moleskine - I never buy a bag if it doesn't fit! And of course, phone, chapstick, wallet, keys, and sometimes headphones if I'm going to be making any sort of a commute.

    I really love your wallet - it really does look like a clutch all on its own!

  29. Isn't Perks the best?! You must see the movie (if you haven't yet) - it's pretty amazing.

  30. I loved Cloud Atlas, it has a really interesting storyline but there are parts that can get confusing and there is a chapter where the language can be difficult to understand. Outside of that if you get sucked in to the plot (like I did) it'll be a good read :)
