Whats in my bag: Backpack edition


Growing up i never really liked backpacks i am pretty sure i stopped using a backpack to carry my school books in grade 6, and used tote bags because i hated them that much. But since the fall i have been obsessed with these small-medium sized leather backpacks and have them in a few colours. i think my favourite one is the red one which i wear so much i might have to buy another one so that i can switch it up. There are a few different colours i am still on the hunt for like black, grey, orange, and navy but i am thinking they will be all over the place in the fall. I am always so interested in what people carry around in their bags that i decided to share what i carry around when i wear a backpack.  i try to keep it as light as i can because it is so easy to get carried away and fill a backpack up to the point where you cant fit anything else in it. 


Of course a wallet is a must have! i actually carry two. i always carried a long regular sized wallet but i found that i kept having to transfer my most used cards into a cardholder when i wanted to use a small purse so now i have the smaller wallet that fits in most of my purses.  i have my small Prada wallet that holds my most used cards; visa, debit, drivers license, health card, optimum card, hbc rewards. And my Michael Kors wallet that holds my other loyalty cards and change. 


I cant help but carry a few beauty items around, i'm a girly girl its what i do. One of the  things i always make sure i have when i leave my house is my Chanel Coco Madmoiselle eau de toilette twist and spray bottle. This is my go to perfume and i wear it basically every day so i always like having the travel sized bottle with me when i am on the go. What i love is that its twist and spray and it doesn't come in a glass bottle so there is no way it can spill in your purse.

Another thing i make sure to carry around is a travel size bottle of hairspray, i live in canada so we live in cold weather most of the year, which tends to leave hair really static-y. Its also doubles to remove static from clothes like skirts and blouses. My favourite hairspray is the Sebastian shaper plus extra hold hairspray, it leaves your hair feeling soft and smelling amazing.
i always throw in my lipstick of the day in my bag because it is inevitable that i will be touching up my lipstick throughout the day. The way that just so happen to be in my bag is Chanel rouge allure velvet "in raffinee" N34. Another lip product i love using is the Clarins instant light natural lip perfecter in rose. it leaves my lips feeling so soft ! with a natural shine.

Hand cream in an essential in anyones bag! i love the l'occtiane Roses et reines hand cream.  i find myself applying this hand cream a couple of times a day, i also have the big version of it on my nightable. It leaves my hands feeling so soft and smelling amazing! the scent reminds me of a doll i had growing up.


Pressed powder is a must have for my in my backpack especially in the summertime ! i have been carrying around Mac's select sheer pressed powder in NC15 (i am super pale) To apply the powder i have this Sonia Kashuk travel compact makeup brush. It comes in this small square compact with a mirror, its great because it prevents powder from getting everywhere in your bag and it also keeps the brush clean and in its proper shape.

Another lip product i love is the NYX Plump it up lip plumper lipgloss in scarlett, its a beautiful sheer colours and it gives your lips a little bit of a plump. Something i recently started carrying around is the NYX all over balm in Morroccan oil, it can be used in any part of your body like your knees and elbows, if you are out and they are looking a little dry this is perfect!  This is also great to use on your knuckles and creases on your hands as well as lipbalm.


I can't really leave my house without my house keys so those always end up on at the bottom of my backpack, so thats why i added this pink furry pom pom and this gold C so that they would be easier to find haha. A hair brush is also essential especially for those windy days, it keeps my hair in check throughout the day.  i always carry Purell with my because you never know when you will need to disinfect your hands, like when you touch something wet on the handle on the subway... eww.... i just always make sure to use hand cream right after it dries.  One of the last things i make sure to carry around with my is a nailfile, i particularly like the glass ones that come in a little case. Now i am not going to lie and say i am a bit nail person because i'm not... i don't remember the last time i painted my nails, but i do wear a lot of tights and chiffon shirts so a nail file is an essential!!
Of course another thing i always carry around in my backpack is my cellphone because who can live without their phone. Mine is the Iphone 6s in a simple clear case.
