WHAT’S IN MY BAG: DAILY ESSENTIALS GIRL BOSS EDITION

APRIL 25, 2019

A PEEK INSIDE MY PURSE

DAILY ESSENTIALS AT A GLANCE

FAVORITE FASHION ACCESSORIES THAT KEEP ME GOING!

HERE ARE MY EVERYDAY ITEMS WHICH I NEED TO FUNCTION FOR MY WORK WEEK AND DAY TO DAY OUTINGS FOR WHEN I’M ON THE GO!

I TEND TO OVER PACK, SO MY DAILY ESSENTIALS ARE MUCH MORE THAN “PHONE, KEYS & WALLET” MY PURSE ITEMS ARE AS FOLLOWS: AGENDA, JOURNAL & MAKEUP BOX, IN ADDITION TO THE FORMER ITEMS, BECAUSE A GIRL BOSS IS ALWAYS PREPARED. 🙂

THE BAG HOLDING IT ALL TOGETHER

LOUIS VUITTON NEVERFULL MONOGRAM MM  

LOUIS VUITTON IS KNOWN FOR HAVING EXPERT CRAFTSMANSHIP, ORIGINATING FROM A LUXURY LUGGAGE BRAND. OVER TIME, AS LV EXPANDED, THEY BECAME A HOUSEHOLD NAME WHICH WAS RECOGNIZED FOR MUCH MORE IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY, WOMENS HANDBAGS BEING A TOP SELLER.

 

 

STAYING PRODUCTIVE & FUNCTIONAL

“FAILING TO PLAN, IS PLANNING TO FAIL.”

LOUIS VUITTON MEDIUM RING AGENDA 

THIS AGENDA WAS MY FIRST STATIONARY ITEM FROM LV, WHICH I GOT ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO. THIS WAS ON MY WISHLIST FOR THE LONGEST TIME. I CONTEMPLATED WHETHER OR NOT THE PRICE WAS WORTH IT FOR SOME TIME. ONCE I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO OWN MY OWN LV AGENDA AFTER SWOONING OVER THIS HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER ITEM WHICH I WANTED SO BADLY. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE FEW, THAT STILL USE A PHYSICAL CALENDAR OR PLANNER, ENJOY STATIONARY ITEMS OR LIKE TO KEEP A JOURNAL, THEN I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AGENDA!

MONOGRAM DESK AGENDA COVER 

I RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS AGENDA COVER BECAUSE OF MY INTENSE LOVE FOR MY AGENDA. I’VE HAD MY EYE ON THE LARGE RING AGENDA, BUT I DECIDED TO PURCHASE THE AGENDA COVER BECAUSE I INTENDED TO USE IT AS A SEPARATE JOURNAL AND MY MEDIUM AGENDA WAS GETTING TOO FULL SERVING AS BOTH JOURNAL AND PLANNER. THE DESK AGENDA COVER HAS 2 INSIDE FLAPS WHICH I USED TO INSERT A HARD BOUND NOTEBOOK TO USE AS THE JOURNAL. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS COVER, ALTHOUGH IT IS STILL NEW, I CAN ALREADY SEE HOW MUCH POTENTIAL IT HAS, TO MAKE IT JUST AS PERSONALIZED AND EFFICIENT AS MY MEDIUM AGENDA. MY AGENDA COVER IS THE LARGE SIZE AND HAS FLAPS, CARD SLOTS IN FRONT AND BACK WITH PLENTY OF ROOM TO ORGANIZE.

PLANNER VS. PHONE?

IN TODAY’S SOCIETY, THROUGH EVER EVOLVING TECHNOLOGY, THERE ARE SO MANY ELECTRONIC OPTIONS READILY AVAILABLE ON YOUR PHONE. A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE TODAY HAVE DITCHED NOTEBOOKS AND AGENDAS BECAUSE OF CONVENIENCE, WHICH IS GREAT (I TOO, HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CALENDAR).

WHY I KEEP A PLANNER

IN MY EXPERIENCE, HAVING A PHYSICAL PLANNER, THAT YOU CAN PERSONALIZE TO NO END, IS SPECIAL. ALTHOUGH MY PHONE CALENDAR VERSION IS JUST AS SUFFICIENT TO KEEP TRACK OF MY SCHEDULE, THERE IS SOMETHING SATISFYING ABOUT CHECKING OFF WHAT I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. WRITING THINGS DOWN HELP ME REMEMBER BETTER ALSO KEEPING ME ACCOUNTABLE.

TURNS OUT THIS AGENDA WAS WORTH IT, IN MY CASE, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A “PLANNER GIRL” EVER SINCE MIDDLE SCHOOL. THE PRICE MAY BE STEEP FOR THIS AGENDA, BUT SINCE I INCORPORATE A PLANNER/JOURNAL DAILY AND LOVE TO WRITE, I USE IT MORE THAN MY PHONE.

BEAUTY

DIOR VANITY BOX

 I CAN NOT EXPLAIN HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS BOX. I USE IT EVERY DAY AND CAN NOT LEAVE MY HOUSE WITHOUT IT. I USE THE BOX TO KEEP MY DAILY BEAUTY ESSENTIALS. THE BOX INCLUDES A MIRROR AND FITS MY EYE & LIPS PRODUCTS + TRAVEL SIZED PERFUME. HAS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE PURCHASES, IT CAME WITH THE FROM DIOR ROUGE PRECIOUS ROCKS COLLECTION.

 

ACCESSORIES

HENRI BENDEL HATBOX KEYCHAIN 

I PURCHASED THIS AT HENRI BENDEL DURING BLACK FRIDAY 2018, BEFORE THEY CLOSED. I PURCHASED THIS KEYCHAIN FOR 50% OFF! AT THE TIME I WAS NOT AWARE THAT THE STORE WOULD BE CLOSING DOWN, I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH A GREAT DEAL! I USE THIS KEYCHAIN AS MY DAILY VITAMIN PILL CASE (OMEGA 3, FISH OIL, ECT.)

CELINE SUNGLASSES 🕶 

THESE OVERSIZED BLACK SUNGLASSES ARE MY GO TO GLASSES. THEY ARE CLASSIC AND CAN BE PAIRED WITH PRETTY MUCH WHATEVER YOU ARE WEARING. THESE ARE MY FAVORITE SUNGLASSES BECAUSE THEY TIE ANY OUTFIT TOGETHER GIVING IT AN INSTANT SHARP AND CHIC LOOK.

 

 LUMEE PHONE CASE 

I AM IN LOVE THIS PHONE CASE! WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE LIGHT UP PHONE CASE, I DIDN’T THINK MUCH ABOUT A “LIGHT UP SELFIE PHONE CASE”. TO BE HONEST, IT SEEMED A BIT PRETENTIOUS TO ME AT FIRST, SO I WASNT IN A RUSH TO GET ONE. LATER DOWN THE LINE, I SAW A DISCOUNT CODE ONLINE AND DECIDED TO BUY IT. EVER SINCE I PUT THIS CASE ON MY PHONE, I HAVEN’T TAKEN IT OFF BESIDES TO CLEAN IT OR EVEN THOUGHT OF SWITCHING TO ANOTHER. IT HAS PROVEN ITSELF TO BE EXTREMELY USEFUL. I USE IT EVERY NIGHT WHEN I WALK THROUGH MY HOUSE WHEN EVERYONE IS ASLEEP (I AM USUALLY THE LAST IN BED). THIS CASE IS EXTREMELY DURABLE AND PROTECTIVE. I USED TO HAVE AN ISSUE CRACKING MY PHONE SCREENS, EVERY IPHONE SCREEN HAS CRACKED ON ME FOR SOME REASON, I EVEN CRACKED MY SCREEN IN AN OTTERBOX CASE! OVERALL, A GREAT CASE FOR MANY REASONS NOT SOLELY FOR TAKING GREAT SELFIES.

GOOD READS FOR APRIL 2019

ITS ALWAYS NICE TO KEEP SOMETHING TO READ WITH YOU IF YOU HAVE ROOM. TODAY I HAD THE CURRENT ISSUES OF VOGUE AND THE BOOK. I ENJOY READING MAGAZINE ARTICLES ON FASHION, TRAVEL & ART FOR WHEN I AM BORED AND THEY SERVE AS INSPIRATION AS WELL!

ALWAYS,

I HOPE TO EMPOWER OTHERS TO ACHIEVE TRUE CONFIDENCE AND SUCCESS. NOW, TYPICALLY, I WOULD NOT TAKE ON SUCH A CHALLENGE, UNLESS I WAS HUMBLED BY LIFE WITH ONLY 2 CHOICES; SINK OR SWIM.

WORK IT BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT!! “DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE WAYS OF THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND.”

    This was a good read baby girl. However, this may not cater to all women from all walks of life. What you want to blog about should be more on the practical side of all womenkind. Something that would inspire and truly empower everyone on a day to day basis. Blog about strength in character, wisdom and inner beauty that radiates through adversaries in life. I think that this may not only inspire and uplift all womenkind, but truly EMPOWER ALL! Just a little suggestion sweetheart. I love you and I think it is BRILLIANT,, what you just wrote.

    LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEE! First of all, I have been obsessed with this particular LV purse forever because of the convenience. I love that you can fit so much in it! I also love your concept of keeping a planner/journal to remember things better. Like the placebo effect, I feel like it helps me remember and it releases dopamine when I can check stuff off my list! I die for your Henri Bendel keychain, what a smart idea to keep your daily vitamins! Sunglasses, phone case, everything you need, you killed it!

      @Cassidy THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING MY POST. I APPRECIATE YOUR FEEDBACK, I AM SO HAPPY YOU ENJOYED IT! I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOUR VIEW ON LV’S NEVERFULL CONVENIENCE… EVEN THE SMALL CLUTCH HAS PROVED TO BE FUNCTIONAL ITSELF, PERFECT BAG FOR ALMOST ANY OCCASION. I AM SO GLAD YOU SEE THE BENEFIT OF KEEPING A PLANNER, I NEVER THOUGHT OF THE “PLACEBO EFFECT” BUT YOU ARE RIGHT LOL, I FIND MYSELF GETTING EXCITED MARKING OFF THINGS IN MY PLANNER… YOU SO GET ME! I DID TRY TO INCLUDE ALL OF MY DAILY NECESSITIES, KEEPING IN MIND “DIFFERENT STROKES FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS”, SO I AM GLAD YOU FOUND MY DAILY ITEMS TO BE USEFUL AND SOMEWHAT RELEVANT TO BEING ESSENTIAL ITEMS! 🙂

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      HEY THANKS FOR VISITING! TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, I AM USING WORDPRESS. I DO NOT KNOW MUCH ON CODING, BUT I HIGHLY SUGGEST STARTING YOUR OWN BLOG AND IN MY OPINION WORDPRESS HAS BEEN EXTREMELY USER FRIENDLY AND I AM NOT TECH SAVVY AT ALL. LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS AND I HOPE THIS HELPS!

    To start with I would like to say great blog! I needed a fast question that
    I’d prefer to ask if you do not mind. I found myself curious to understand the way
    you center yourself and clear your face before writing.
    We have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it
    just seems like the very first ten or fifteen minutes tend to be lost just trying to
    figure out where to start. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thanks!
