What's in my Bag? Fall 2014 Edition

Today's discussion is sponsored by Affinitas. 

With the long hours I work this season, my purse has become a black hole for anything and everything so I can make it through the day.  You can often find an extra set of clothes, various snacks (and their empty wrappers), a bathing suit and probably a kitchen sink and lost kitten, too. Only kidding on the last two. Though I wish I had a kitten to carry around…

While the outfit changes daily and the bathing suit may be removed from the bag as the weather cools down (my workplace is right on a beach so I sometimes go hangout on the beach after hours), most of the base items in my purse stay the same. The main items are:

//Reading Book: Currently I'm reading Creativity, Inc. I actually got this book in my swag bag from HerConference. I've been reading it while on my lunch break.
//Wallet: Duh. 
//Tic Tacs or gum: I'm all about that fresh breath. Especially if I'm talking to customers 
//Umbrella: You never know when a storm may come rolling through off the lake! I was actually caught in a monsoon after work and forgot to pack my umbrella. I will never let that happen again! 
//Phone: Again, duh. 
//Makeup:  Rrecognize my current favorites from Younique and Neutrogena? While I don't have to worry about touching up my makeup most of the time, sometimes it's just nice to have for just incase or if I want to reapply while I'm running to happy hour. 
//Notebook & Planner: I write everything down. You never know when a blog idea will hit ya or you remember something for the to do list. 
//Affinitas Cupcake Panty: With long hours at work, sometimes I just want a complete change when I change out of my uniform and into street clothes. The adorable cupcake packaging hides underwear inside. It's great for when my bag accidentally tips and spills at the office; no one knows what's hidden inside! The underwear comes in hipster or thongs and they're perfect for on the go.

  7. YESSS, You have no idea how excited I was to see you put up a "What's in my Bag" post. I love these ones, probably because I'm literally the nosiest person in the world. Join the club by the way, my bag is a perpetual war zone of odds and ends.

  8. Super cute! I love What's In My Bag posts! I'll have to do one, but my bag is SO packed!


  9. Very cute bag and the contents are awesome too. Love your photos!
