Hola babes!! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!! Since I do long-distance with my boyfriend, we JUST exchanged Christmas presents this week because its the first time we’ve seen each other since November!!!! He always gets the best gifts for me, I have to say I’m a tad bit spoiled hehe.
Last Christmas the little angel got me a Nikon camera to really step up my blog pictures, and this year he got me a light box which I LOVE. This gadget has 3 huge bright lights that go on top of it and on both sides, so the lighting inside is always on point. I can even fit in it sitting down so its perfect for necklace posts and I can basically take amazing, professional pictures now! It has stepped up my Instagram game by 10 billion percent, you just wait.
When I was younger, my friends would always love looking through my bag. It seemed that every time we were stuck waiting at school, these girls would be furiously scrounging through trying to find my newest purchase… bitches😜. Their faves were probably the lip gloss that plumped your lips and made them tingle, or my Tommy Girl Crinkling Perfume (this was such a trend when I was younger, not sure if any other girl was obsessed with it too?!) Anyways, I didn’t think that other girls liked knowing what their friends carry around as well, until I started reading blogs regularly, and saw that a lot of bloggers do these posts!! I LOVE reading whats-in-my-bag posts, because I always like to have the best products on hand at all times!
So I decided its time to share my favourite products to carry around with me! After many unfortunate circumstances over the years – where I didn’t have a tampon😑, or lipstick💄, or phone charger😱, I have learned what my bag necessities are.
When picking a wallet, I usually like to splurge a little bit. I love Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, YSL and Prada wallets a lot! I think since its something you use literally every day, you shouldn’t be afraid to spend a little dough to get a long-lasting wallet. Here’s some inspo for your perfect wallet.
I like to have a natural colour, a bold red, and a light-ish pink on hand at all times! You never know where you’ll be off to next, and how a little lipstick can make you look 10x better if you need a quick pick-me-up.
Mac lipstick must-haves: Brave, Honeylove, Twig & Velvet Teddy (my favourite)
I don’t know if I’m the only one who does this.. But I always like to have a few rings, a dainty necklace or a bracelet in my bag. Since I’m always on the go, I sometimes forget to accessorize, so I carry a little variety with me!
Since I live in Canada most of the time, I always get chapped lips, and its so annoying when I’m trying to wear lipstick and its clumpy. SO, I always carry around this amazing lip scrub with me! Its made from sugar, so you can lick it off right after (and it tastes like popcorn..😍) I also NEED to carry a bottle of Fat Fighters with me at all times, I keep a bottle in my car, a bottle at home and a bottle in my purse! Heheh I’ll eat cheat meals or candy while I’m out and about and then regret it immediately after.. 😂 so these pills are a must for eating what you want, but maintaining a steady weight. I also pack a little cute bag filled with feminine product must-haves!
I know this is a whats in my bag post, but I couldn’t resist posting my favourite bags! Most of these are on my dream board.. I’m obsessed with bags!
Annnddd to finish off the post, here are some behind-the-scenes pictures of my first day with the light box!
