Beauty in the Bag


Ray-Ban Sunglasses: I am always on the go, and when I wear my contacts, I love wearing my sunglasses. I think it is super handy that they fold up small so that I always have room for them.

Fossil Key bag: This bag is cute, but also the perfect size to fit my hand lotion, perfume, EOS Chapstick and oil blotting sheets.

iPhone: I always have my phone on me when I am going to work, play practice, or just out to run errands. It allows me to stay connected.

Paper mate pen and ticket book: I am a waitress out at The Oscar Store, and I am always working, so I almost always have an extra pad in my purse so I am ready to take orders.

Victoria’s Secret Coconut Milk and Pineapple Body Mist: I recently switched body mists and I love this spray. It is small enough to carry with you and spray on throughout the day.

Michael Kors Wallet and Purse: This purse was a present, and I have been in love with it ever since. It is the perfect size.

Peppermint Altoids: My No. 1 peeve is bad breath, so after I have my morning coffee at work I can just pop in a mint.

Keys: I drive a Prius, and all of my friends and family know I have keys to PrePre, which is my car’s name, on me at all times.

Blue Sky Day Designer: I hate being unorganized, so I always use a planner. I put my work schedule, play practices, social and school events on it. I love being able to look back and see exactly what I have done in my past.

My lip balm, keys and iPhone are my never-go-anywhere-without items.

Do you have a beauty signature or product you are known for using?

DKNY Be Delicious perfume is definitely one of my go-to signature scents, but I always mix up my perfume because they all smell so good I can never just stick with one. Urban Decay Sin eye shadow is usually a daily wear for me. It’s a perfect lighter pink so it is soft, but shiny, and it gives an extra pop to my eyes.

Do you have a helpful hint you can share with readers?

To keep a bigger bag organized well, I recommend keeping smaller bags in it with different types of items in them (one for makeup, one for sticky notes, whatever you may need to carry)
