I don't know about you, but I love 'What's In My Bag" posts! It's so fun to take a peek into someone's purse and see what they keep with them from day to day. I don't think I've ever done one of these, so I thought it'd be fun to show you how to pack a pouch for your everyday essentials.
Oil Absorbing Sheets
These are absolutely essential, since my skin is combination/oily. Every day, around lunch time, I use one of these to blot away the oil. I also use them after I go to the gym in the afternoon.
I follow up my oil absorbing sheets with a quick swipe of powder. Although I use loose powder in the morning when I apply my makeup, it's not very practical to carry it around with me during the day. This is the powder I'm currently using, and it does a great job of keeping me shine-free in the afternoon!
Just in case my face looks completely wrecked after I go to the gym, I keep a stick foundation on hand. If I have any breakouts or extra redness, I use a quick swipe of this foundation and blend it in.
Mini Nail Files
I am forever breaking my nails, so I always have a nail file at hand (no pun intended!). This tiny little package even fits in a clutch, so it's perfect to carry around with me every day!
Blush & Highlighter
Sometimes I go to blog events right after work. Just in case I need to freshen my makeup, I have one of my favorite blush and highlighters in my purse. These can easily be applied in the car.
I always have about 10 lip products in my purse at any given moment ... and I'm really trying to get better about it! This liquid lipstick has been in my purse for quite a while, so it's definitely a favorite! The color goes with just about everything, it's easy to apply on the go, and it lasts for a very long time.
If you're like me, you definitely feel that afternoon slump after lunch time. I don't like to drink a bunch of coffee in the afternoon, so I've been using these Energems to power through the afternoon. Each gem contains a little bit of a caffeine and Vitamins B and D, which is great for giving you a boost of energy*. You can take up to 3, which is the equivalent to a cup of coffee. It's so portable and shareable. I only take one at a time, so it's not so much caffeine that it doesn't affect my sleep but I still get a boost of energy!
I get my Energems at Walmart, in the sports nutrition section near the pharmacy. The package is small, so keep an eye out for them! There is currently a rebate offer for Energems, which you can read about here.
I hope this gave you a bunch of ideas for your everyday essentials! What will you be keeping in your purse?
