what's in my bag?

I've seen these 'what's in the bag' posts done before & thought it would be fun to do today.
 Let's start with my bag. my precious baby. 
My damier azur canvas speedy 30 by louis vuitton.
I usually don't take her out until it's officially spring but I'll make an exception this year.

From left to right:
  • Ok first things first, I hope only girls are reading this. The pretty leopard print? That my friends is a pair of underwear. You seriously never know when you'll need them, okay??? You just never know. This is embarrassing. (from Victoria's Secret).
  • Aveeno hand lotion, dry weather here makes for dry hands.
  • behind that, my make-up bag (details in the photo below!).
  • Excel White gum. Flavor? Bubble gum. What else?
  • Hand sewn coffee to-go sleeve from Etsy (I wish I remembered the store name, such cute things!). Even with a cardboard sleeve that comes with the cup, it's still usually too hot for my hands, this has been my hand-saver?!
  • Prada sunglasses. I don't treat them very nicely, they've been thrown around, been in the ocean etc. yet they are still alive.
  • Quick shine for nails. 50 natural by chanel. In case of a run, hole? You never know. Or just paint my nails when I'm bored.
  • Lipgloss. Rouge (345) by dior.
  • Lipstick. Rouge Allure (58) by chanel. A very beautiful deep red. My favorite red ever.
  • My, too small, wallet by louis vuitton. I need a new, bigger one. One day soon....
  • My, too small, change purse by louis vuitton. It bulges with all the change I have in there. Not cute.
  • Justin Bieber, Never Say Never, movie ticket stub. Don't hate. From my date night with my two besties on Friday!
  • my iPhone 4. She is my love.
  • House key. You know, so I can get in my house and stuff.
  • My sugar tablets in case of an emergency. I am hypoglycemic so these are a staple in my bag.
what's in my make-up bag?
One of my friends is/was working the counter of Laura Mercier at Holt Renfrew in the fall & she hooked me up with some pretty amazing things. Including the actual make-up bag itself.

From left to right (as best I can):
  •  Tweezers. Need I say more?
  • Translucent Loose Setting Powder by laura mercier.
  • Timewise matte-wear liquid foundation by mary kay. My favorite foundation so far!
  • Mascara in black by laura mercier.
  • Blush in warm-soul by m.a.c.
  • Foundation Primer by laura mercier. I love this stuff! It's so light and makes my foundation go on perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend using foundation primer! Even eye primer helps to set the eye shadow and prevent creases! 
  • Secret Camouflage in SC-4 by laura mercier. Ok hear me now, this concealer has two colours in this pallet. One a lighter shade and another in a darker shade. Mix the two and you get the perfect tone for your skin! This stuff is magic for any imperfections. This is highly used in the celebrity world such as Kourtney Kardashian etc.
  • The magic mini brush by laura mercier that needs to be used for the concealer. Must.
  • Travel powder/blush brush by m.a.c. Brush #129SH. Perfect for traveling and does the job well!
  • Flawless Skin Eye Creme. Anti-aging Eye Creme. I actually put this on before I put my eye shadow on, it seems to set the shadow all the while keeping crows feet away =)
  • Eye shadow personal quad by m.a.c. I can't remember the exact names of these colours but there's a brow highlighter, gold, bronze and purple.
  • Lastly, bobby pin, hair elastic & clip.
 And that's that! 
I have way too much stuff & type too much.
