Since I haven't done a "What's in my bag" post in a long time, I figured I'd share an updated version. I know most women keep everything in their bag but the kitchen sink, I, on the other hand, am the exact opposite. I don't like to bring a lot of stuff with me on a daily basis so as much as I can, I only take the bare necessities.
Inside my make-up bag, I always carry with me two lipsticks: an everday pink/nude shade for daytime wear and a bold bright red colour for evening affairs.
I also bring with me my MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation and blush in Harmony for quick touch-ups; a packet of Oil Control Film to keep oiliness at bay; my Holy Grail mascara from Maybelline; CLEAN perfume; and this tube of Flawless Skin Protect Gel to shield my face from harmful UV rays. I swear this gel sunscreen is a God-send for people with oily skin! Plus, it fits nicely in my make-up bag so I can easily re-apply if I'm exposed to the sun for longer periods of time. You can check out my review of this product here.
Having a baby entails frequent handwashing so my skin gets really dry sometimes. This small travel-sized bottle of Chopard lotion is useful to have as it helps keep my hands moisturized through out the day.
My other bag essentials include a wallet, busines card holder, keys, a pen, sunglasses and my pink Asus power bank. Back-to-back Blogging events and client meetings can get a bit crazy so I make sure my phone's always fully charged while I'm out and about.
Also in my bag is Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's 2016 Giving Journal. I recently attended the exclusive sneak peak of the brand's Holiday offerings. They just released four exciting planners and two new drinks just in time for the holiday season. Will be sharing more details soon! :)
