What’s in my bag | Spring 2014

September 9, 2014
whats in my bag

Oh hi all! Here I am with a post to start the week off with a good note! The last time I did a ‘what’s in my bag’ was about a year ago and I was surprised how well it did – guess you all love looking inside a person’s bag as much as I do! Literally, if you take a look at my YouTube history, those are the main types of videos I love watching!
With all the above said, i decided to do another ‘what’s in my bag’ type of post as we head into Spring. I am so glad and happy winter is bidding its final goodbye – it feels as if it has been here forever!
I normally carry a million and one things with me from my iPad to a notebook and everything in-between, but I’m trying not to. I’m keeping it all very simple with a cute (and quite bright) messenger sort of bag from Jay Jay’s which makes me so happy to look at! I’m so glad I was able to grab one of these whilst there was [clearly] limited stock.

Here’s a list of what is in my bag:
1. Black studded purse, Edgars / 2. Samsung Galaxy s4, case from Amazon / 3. Pink compact mirror I’ve had for years / 4. White Musk fragrance mist, The Body Shop / 5. Hydrating lip balm, Labello / 6. Pomegranate lip balm, The Body Shop
So tell me, what’s in your bag? Do you like to keep it simple or have everything and anything in your bag?

Organization inspiration

I’m so, so glad to have chosen to get back into blogging full-time. I suddenly stopped and even though I kept saying I would return, I just did not. When asked why I stopped blogging I did not really have an answer to that question. Luckily my family, friends and even work colleagues are encouraging me to get back into sharing my thoughts. I can’t wait to as well as catch up with all my favourite blogs. I’m even thinking of doing some blogging tips in a kind of series of posts.

Instead of focusing on the past I decided to return to blogging with some inspiration. I’ve been wanting to focus on finding new, cute and inexpensive ways to store my makeup, nail polish, jewelery and hair accessories but sadly have not found any. What I have found is ton of inspiration on websites like Tumblr, Pinterest and WeHeartIt which are giving me a few organizational ideas. I must admit, organizing things can sometimes be fun, do you agree?

I want storage that is simple and gives me the ability to see what I have. for me it’s basically an out of sight, out of mind mentality and that’s not good because I tend to forget about certain purchases. I thought it would be fun to share with you some photos that have given me a few storage ideas. Once I’ve started the process of creating a cool organizational space for my pretty things perhaps I’ll blog the final outcome with you all?
