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!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Review

Hello everyone!

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a great/productive day!

Today I decided to dedicate a blog post to swatching/reviewing the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette!


This was my first time swatching and I really enjoyed it! It was pretty messy, but definitely worth it.


Before I did this I never really payed much attention to the detail within the shades. Having done these swatches made me really appreciate the beauty of the colors within this palette.

So without further a do, here are my swatches/review!


The palette has twelve beautiful colors! Nine shimmer shades and three matte colors. From left to right they are: Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, and Blackout. The palette also comes with a mirror and a double sided eyeshadow brush.

I tend to use the both of the brushes when applying my makeup. I use the smaller brush (photo above) for applying the product and the bigger brush (photo below) for blending.


Everything about this product is gorgeous; the packaging, the different shades, it’s a great size and the pigmentation of the colors are fabulous!


I did have quite a bit of trouble showing the Foxy shade (first shade) mostly because it is a light creme color. The nine shimmer shades just glided on my skin I had absolutely no trouble applying those colors. They are very pigmented and apply beautiful.

My favorite shades would have to be Busted and Pistol. Those shades are gorgeous especially since fall is around the corner!

This palette is perfect for anyone, whether you’re a professional or you’re barely learning how to apply eyeshadow. You can do either a natural look or go for a more intense look when using this palette.

I believe this palette could be purchased at Sephora, Ulta or at Macy’s. It can be purchased for around fifty dollars. I know it’s a little but on the pricey side, but a little does go a long way. I’ve had this palette for about two years now, so it does last quite a while!


Overall, the colors are gorgeous and I hope you enjoyed me babbling on about this palette!
