What's in my Bag?

Good morning, readers! I’ve never done a “what’s in my bag?” post before, and since love to get a glimpse into people’s handbags, apartments, and workspaces (i.e. lives), I thought it might be fun to share the contents of my little crossbody with you today. A bag is comparable to a car or a house; it’s an extension of oneself, a functional space that intentionally and unintentionally paints a portrait of its owner.
