Hello Hello! I hope you’re having a great Monday and your week is off to a great start!! Is it me or did this year kinda fly by once April hit? I can’t believe that fall is right around the corner. I’m excited for the cooler weather, cozy clothes, and my birthday ha! Anyway, on to today’s post. I love watching “Whats in my bag” YouTube videos and/or reading “What’s in my bag” blog posts and decided to do one myself. I find them so interesting to see what people carry with them, and sometimes I learn about products that I never knew about. Plus I am the definition of “Bag Lady”, have been since I was 2 and would carry my grandma’s bag around and then filling it with my own “treasures”. Then I’d make my grandpa listen to me go through all my treasures and tell him why each thing was special ha.
The list below is what I carry on an every day basis but my bag is big enough to carry my laptop [13 inch MacBook Pro], iPad Mini [it will hold a regular size one as well but I like the mini better] and a couple of notebooks and a binder. I’m always cold so whenever I leave the house and I’m not already wearing a jacket, I always carry a hoodie or sweater with me and that fits in my bag as well.
My bag: Louis Vuitton Neverful GM. I LOVE this bag!! It is my baby and his name is Louie lol. My whole family even calls him Louie ha! Fun Fact: It took me THREE months to convince my Grandpa to let me buy this bag with MY OWN money haha. He finally agreed and I couldn’t get to the mall fast enough. When I got the LV store, I was so excited I actually picked the wrong pattern 🤦🏻♀️ I wanted the Monogram version, not the Damier Ebene. I realized as I was leaving and I couldn’t exchange it because I had mine monogrammed. I’m actually glad I have this one and one day I’ll get the other one. [Sorry babe lol]
It’s name ‘Neverful’ is so accurate because it’s hard to fill it. It has so much room for so much stuff. My family used to give me a hard time about the price tag but they have since stopped because the realized how great it is that they can throw their stuff in it and have me carry it when we all go out. It is quit large and sometimes when I’m out and I’m in small areas, I like the fact that I can synch the sides and make it smaller. It also has an inside zipper pocket and a D-ring where you can hook your keys on it. It also has a top hook closure.
Louis Vuitton Wristlet: I call this bag “Baby Louie” because it came with the LV Neverful bag. I keep my coupons in it, along with my portable charger and cord, and a car adapter with two USBs in it. I love this wristlet because its large and can hold a lot [including my card holder, keys, lipgloss] but its not huge either and other than taking it to NFL games, I can take it anywhere. It’s a nice neutral so it goes with all my outfits.
Kate Spade gold sparkle card case: I actually have two of these. The first one I bought has the key ring option and a zipper for change. I like this one better because I never used the key ring and to be honest it just annoyed me ha. I carry my everyday cards and ID in it. It is small and fits pretty much in anything. It is easy to grab when I don’t want to take my handbag. I highly recommend card cases because you can throw them anywhere or in anything, put some cash in the pocket part and you don’t have the bulk of a wallet.
Chanel Wallet: The card case is great because it holds the essentials I need, but I do have other cards and items that I need in my handbag but not all the time so I keep them in this wallet. I love this wallet, it was a gift from my aunt- she totally surprised me. I keep the things that I need, but aren’t essential in here like credit cards I don’t use all the time and store cards. I also keep business cards and pictures in it. Plus I love carrying it because it was such a sweet gift.
Louis Vuitton Cosmetic Case: I love this case. This was also a gift- it was my present from my Daddee for my 30th birthday. It is big enough to hold my essentials but not super big that I can over fill it and it won’t take a ton of space in my handbag. [Not that its really a problem with the size of my handbag lol] I keep a few items in here all the time, but depending on my outfit and mood I’ll change up the lip products I need/want for the day.
A clear pouch: This is where I keep all the little things that if not contained will be at the bottom of my bag. I have cough drops, band aids, Neosporin, Benadryl, gum, ibuprofen, and Tums. Basically this is why my friends call me Momma Bear ha.
Sunglasses: Quay High Key X Desi Perkins. These are so flattering on everyone who wears them. I don’t know how she did it but they look amazing on every face shape! I get compliments on them whenever I wear them. They came with a case to put them in and its great because its thin so it doesn’t take up a lot of room in my bag. Plus my glasses fit in it as well, when I have to switch them out.
Miscellaneous Items: A mask or two, Altoids, tissues, keys, scrunchie, and individual hand wipes.
And that is what is in my bag! What are your essentials you carry in your bag? Leave them in the comments below. Thank you so much for being here, it means so much! You can also follow along on Instagram: @jennniferlynn11 and Pinterest: @jennniferlynn11.
