What's In My: Handbag

If you follow me on Instagram (@crumbsandcurls) then you might know that Monday's J'adore June Instagram Challenge theme of the day was 'In My Bag'.  In my post I said that I would be sharing all the details on here about what exactly is in my bag, keep reading on to find out!

Kleenex Tissue Pocket Packet: It seems like my allergies are always crazy bad & the spring & summer are the worst time for them!  Due to this I always have to have tissues on me because I never stop sneezing.  I usually get these at the school convenience store with the 'points' from my meal plan & I buy like 10 at a time, I am all stocked up for summer.

Vera Bradley Travel Pill Case: You may or may not know that I have a lot of health problems, & because of that I have to take a lot of medication, this pill case is so great to keep in my bag because it has little spots to organize your pills.  If you have to take any type of medicine (even something like Benadryl) this is the perfect way to keep it in your bag.

Free People Sunglasses (last year, similar here): I was obsessed with the cat eye sunglass trend last year & am very happy that it continued right through to this year.  I picked these up at Free People before I went to Greece last year because I didn't want to bring my Chanel sunglasses with me & now I wear them all the time.

Lilly Pulitzer Coin Purse: I got this adorable little coin purse last year at the racetrack near my house when they hosted a ladies day before their biggest race of the season.  I thought it was too cute & it fits my business cards perfectly!

Bath & Body Works PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel: I have to be super careful about getting sick so I always have at least one of these in my bag & a few individual packets of Wet Ones.  I've tried a few different sanitizers, but these are my absolute favorite because they smell delicious & don't dry out your hands.

Nivea Skin Creme: This works great for any dry spots I might experience during the day.

Lilly Pulitzer Carded ID Smartphone Wristlet: This wallet is the best for me right now because I have to tap my ID at school to get into where I live & its design makes it so easy to do this.  It also holds all of my cards, ids, & money on the inside, which is so convenient.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Transparent Lip Liner: I always line my lips with this before putting on lipstick, it has a waxy consistency so it really helps to prevent the lipstick from bleeding.

Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Black Cherry: I am still loving a really dark lip (remember my post about oxblood lips?) & read the other day that a deep berry pout is going to be huge this summer, I love how unexpected it is & you will definitely find me rocking it.

Neosporin & Band-Aid: I like to keep these for any cuts or blisters that might pop up when I'm out. The Neosporin also works really well when around my nose starts to get dry from always blowing it.

Nail File: My nails are super brittle & break a lot so I find it helpful to keep a nail file in my bag to smooth out any problems.

Conair Mini Hairbrush: I like to make little touchups throughout the day if my hair needs it & this is especially helpful if it happens to be a windy day.

Sc√ľnci No Slip Hair Tie in Blonde: I only have one of this kind of hair tie left & they're so difficult to find in stores, but I really like them because they're the only hair ties that blend in with my hair.

Kiss My Face Organic Coconut Pineapple Lip Balm: This is my go to lip balm for day time & I use it a few times throughout the day.  I've talked about my love of this balm on here before & you can read more about it here.

The Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy 30.  This bag is a classic & holds everything you need.
