WHAT'S IN MY BAG - SUMMER '14


I've been using this tropical print crossbody bag from ASOS for most of the moving festivities throughout the past few weeks, and I thought today I would show you guys what I carry around in it. 

Kate Spade wallet - Christmas pressie from the BF and I love it! It still looks new, even though it goes everywhere with me and gets tossed around more than its fair share.

Banana cozy - Because a girl's gotta eat and bananas are awesome. This handmade cutie from 9th & Elm offers just the right amount of cushion to keep my snack non-bruisey. 

Sunnies - Classic RayBan Wayfarers, my go-to pair that y'all see me wear all the time. They have definitely been worth the investment!

Pen - Sometimes I have to write stuff, and when I do, this comes in handy. Also, I look like a hero if someone else needs to borrow a pen and I happen to have one to lend. 

iPhone and leopard print case - I don't go anywhere without my phone, just like everyone else on the planet (that has one, anyway). My case is from 9th & Elm in my favorite print (yay leopard!), and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. 

Glasses and case - You know, sometimes I go in stores or something and don't want to look silly by wearing my sunnies inside. I mean, I still wear my sunnies inside most of the time anyway because #yolo (haha, jk), but just in case I want to class things up a bit, I carry these regular specs too. 

Assorted makeup-y/beauty things - F21 zippered pouch, leopard mirror, powder, travel kabuki brush thingie, lipstick, concealer, hand cream, travel perfume doodad, mini deodorant, hair ties and clips, etc = vanity. No shame. 

Lip balms - And lots of them because I manage to misplace them even within such a small purse. I ordered three flavors from 9th & Elm (pomegranate berry, chocolate cake, and peppermint) and love them all. The chocolate cake one is especially delicious. 

Thank you to 9th & Elm for letting me pick a few things from your site to review and carry around with me on the daily! I can't live without 'em. And if y'all are in need of cute handmade and independent designs to give as gifts or fun things to treat yoself a bit (because you deserve it, duh), definitely give 9th & Elm a look.
