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.

And I know what you’re thinking… Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Poe is more of a fall/winter pick for sure, but I fell in love with it at Sephora and can’t wait to pick up a tube for myself (they were sold out, understandably so!). Also, I just found out that my favorite blush by Urban Decay is no longer being sold/made… I’ll have to cherish every last swipe of mine.
