What’s in My Purse?!

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today I want to show you what’s in my purse! I love watching ‘What’s in My Purse?’ videos on YouTube, so I decided I would write a blog post on it!

So let’s begin!

I have the large Michael Kors tote bag. It’s my favorite especially since I am always carrying tons of things. I decided to get this color combination, because it matches with both brown and black outfits.

I also got the matching wallet with the purse! I actually got these two items for my birthday two and half years ago!

I always carry a body spray, whether it’s in my purse or backpack. This is the travel size Night fragrance mist by Victoria’s Secret. It smells so good! Because of its ‘strong’ fragrance, I highly recommend this body spray as your go-to during a night out. The item retails at just $15, and are often sold as a “buy one, get one free” promotion. Cheap, and easy to carry? Definitely a must!

Now, we move onto one of the more ‘unusual’ items found in my purse. Being that it’s a tote bag, why not let it double as a backpack as well?! At the moment, I’m carrying along the book Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. For all you bookworms out there, this is a classic I highly suggest!

If you’re going to call South Texas home, sunglasses are a must! My absolute favorite sunglasses are these Ray Bans. I’ve had these going on five years now, which speaks volumes regarding their durability! They’re the aviator sunglasses, with the gold rim. I paid upwards of $150 for these, but times change, and lucky for you, they’re online at retail for only $125 now.

I have my ‘All I need is coffee and mascara’ journal. I actually won this at a baby shower and it has been so helpful! I am always scribbling in there, whether it’s my to do list or a blog post idea. It comes really in handy!

With so many things going on in our day-to-day lives, it’s easy to forget a pre-aranged appointment or school assignment. Cue the handy planner. Since I am going to school this semester I’m always planning out me weeks and assignments that I have to do. Very convenient to carry in my purse! (Yes, I know, 2017 is long gone. So time for an update!)

For makeup in my purse I do have quite a few products.

I have the Urban Decay Powder. I’m always carrying it around for little touch ups.

I have this cute double mirror also from Urban Decay. I received this item for free and I use it almost every single day!

I have a Nars lipstick its the shade ‘Orgasm’. I also received this item for free! It’s a light shimmer pink! Super cute!

I also have one of my favorite mascaras from Benefit Cosmetics! I am always carrying it in cast of emergencies!

I have a hair clip in here. As much as I love having my hair down I prefer my hair out of my face when I’m doing certain activities like studying or working out.

I am always hungry! Lol. I make sure to carry some type of snack in my purse. These are some biscuit from Belvita. They are my favorite and super delicious/nutritious.

That is it for What’s in my Purse I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed showing you my things!

Thanks for reading!

Day 5

Last day of my five day blogging challenge! I must say it was pretty hard to complete this challenge, but overall it was very fun!

I decided to write about the book I am currently reading, ‘The Power of Habit. Why we do what we do in life and business.’ by Charles Duhigg.

Habit-forming has been something I’ve always had a bit of trouble in. Whether it is waking up at 7 in the morning or making my daily visit to the local gym, I’m sure we can all agree that making something into a habit is a lot more complicated then it makes out to be.

The book is full of real life examples of how habits are formed, and they all have a particular, yet simple process in common!

This process revolves around three components, all of which need to be properly addressed if you wish to make a simple occurrence into a daily habit: the cue, the routine, and the reward.

My favorite example that was used was about how a man was able to make a million dollars by selling toothpaste by using this process! (This was before toothpaste was used.) He used this process in order to persuade people to buy their product. He begins by setting his cue, which is letting people now that their teeth isn’t clean. He states in the book, “Just run your tongue across your teeth. You’ll feel a film- that’s what makes your teeth look ‘off color’ and invites decay” People then begin to realize that he is right! Their teeth aren’t clean and that they want that clean feeling, which then leads to them purchasing their product, using it and achieving the reward of a clean mouth.

I’ve noticed that in order to make a habit the three step process is most of the time used.

I’m not quite done yet, but I definitely recommend this book. It’s definitely a good read!
