Everyday Bag Essentials

everyday bag essentials
Everyday bag essentials. I know very few women who are capable of leaving for the day without a bag full of stuff they absolutely cannot live without. I’m no different. My bag is embarrassingly heavy, but I never know if I’m going to need my book, or my planner or any number of other things. There are, however, certain items that are always with me. Sometimes it’s because I know they’ll come in handy and other times because they make me feel good.

Great bag. I recently received this tan bag from Greg Michaels. It’s a beautiful suede in a classic shape that works with every piece of clothing I own and fits all my stuff like a charm. You can tell it was expertly designed by a bag lover and someone who respects a woman’s need to not only stay beautiful, but to stay organized. The bag is filled with pockets making it impossible to lose anything (such a bonus when my phone starts ringing and I have no idea where it could possibly be). I love how its chic structured shape balances out the relaxed material making it a sophisticated accessory for everyday. This is definitely my new “it” bag!

Glam mirror. I believe that every woman needs a spot of elegant luxury with her. Not only is this compact mirror from Crystalik eye-catching and wonderfully designed, but it is functional as well. I love pulling it out to check my hair or makeup. For night, it’s like a gorgeous piece of jewelry that I get to show off. Every Swarovski Elements crystal is expertly placed and of the highest quality. The sparkle is beautiful and best of all, it makes me smile just to look at it.

Trusty pen + planner. I’m definitely a technology nut. I can’t help myself, I just love it. There is , however, something so elegant about a pen and planner. Whenever I pull them out, it makes me feel like I’m joining a rich history of famous writers. This is especially true when I get a fabulous idea for a blog post and it needs to be written down asap.

Lipstick and lip conditioner. My eye makeup tends to stay on all day, but lipstick? That requires application throughout the day. Not only is this the perfect excuse to pull out my bejeweled mirror, it also keeps me looking my best.

Perfume. I’m a big fan of wearing a scent on a daily basis. It has to be subtle and sophisticated, a little bit mysterious and unique. A gorgeous fragrance will envelope you throughout the day and leave a lasting impression wherever you go.

I’m lucky enough to be able to do much of my work from home office, but when I need to go out for a meeting or just to meet friends, it’s imperative that I stay organized. With my work, I never know what will happen from moment to moment or what I might need next. Whatever else I may have to bring along, you’ll always find these basics in my bag.

What are some of your daily essentials?

My Story In Brief


  1. I absolutely love your planner! Did you make it yourself?



    1. It’s an amazing planner, it made a huge difference in my blog! It’s actually from my SBB course, check out my sidebar there’s a link for the info there!

  2. That blog planner book is SO pretty. My journal looks similar to yours (top right)! Loving the bag too, it’s divine. Xx


  3. I have a agenda that I write in when I get a chance. I just like having it on paper, as opposed to having it digital.

  4. My organizer and lipstick are definite musts!

  5. Love the bag! Happy Friday 🙂

    Candice | Beauty Candy Loves

    1. Thank you! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I’m terrible at abiding by my own rules–but some kind of breath freshener is always an essential. You never know who you’ll meet!

    Also, I am really loving that bag. Gorgeous!


  7. I’m charmed by your new bag and by thr glamour of its contents!
    Coco et La vie en rose – Valeria Arizzi

  8. I’ve everything on your list- PHEW! I have to say with my bag I definitely have Mary Poppins Syndrome, its filled with just everything!x

    1. I know, me too! I try so hard to streamline but it’s not working very well.

  9. I actually carry very few items with me: wallet, umbrella and/or sunglasses, tissues, my iPhone, my ipod, lip balm and hand sanitizer! So needless to say that I buy small bags…larger ones feel so empty!

    1. I think that’s amazing! I really try super hard to not stuff my bag (and I do succeed sometimes) but often times I’m a failure!

  10. I actually carry around my laptop inside a sturdy backpack, makes me look a little going on a hike, but it´s also practical 🙂


    1. I have been dying for a backpack!

  11. Always love reading an essentials post!

    I love having my journal with me! It’s both my planner too…LOL. 😀

    With Love,
    Anna || Curly Scribbles

    1. I always have a planner with me. You never know when a good idea might come along!

  12. Perfect organization Caroline… great essentials!!!
    Kisses, Paola.


    My Facebook

    1. Thanks so much!

    1. Ha! Thanks.

  13. I like this. Especially now that I’m carrying handbags more and more.
    xoxo 😉

    1. Oh I am so glad you enjoyed this post!

  14. My purse is packed with everything from a mini makeup bag to a notebook and a pharmacy’s worth of vitamins– I over prepare lol. BTW I have the same blog planner for 2015 and it has been helping me leaps and bounds to kick my blog game up 10 notches!

    1. Yay! I love that blog planner, it’s fantastic isn’t it.
