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!

What I got for Christmas!

Hello and happy Monday!

I hope everyone started the week on a good note!

I know Christmas is over and has been over for about two weeks already, but I wanted to show you what I got for Christmas!

So let’s begin!

I am a huge Starbucks fan. I practically spend my whole time there, whether I am in school or during the break. Most of my family knows this by now, so I received a Starbucks gift card from one of my aunts, which I already used.

I received this cute Christmas wine glass from one of my cousins. I put it to use once I received it. Lol.

I also received this awesome ColourPop Palette, which I plan on doing a review on! Fingers crossed!

IMG_3215.jpg

I received this cute Nautica pajama set from my boyfriend’s mom. It’s a light baby blue color with tons of snowflakes. Perfect for the winter! They are so comfy and I’m a huge fan of pajamas sets!

IMG_3214.jpg

I also received one of my favorite body sprays from my little sister! Its the perfect size since I usually like carrying body mists in my purse for emergencies! It was a gift bundle which came with a body spray and a hand cream!

From my parents I received a two hundred dollar gift card from Academy Sports + Outdoors. With that I was able to purchase a good amount of clothes! I mostly bought workout clothes, because I was in need of new gym attire.

I love the brand BCG, because their clothes is super affordable and comfortable. I got this cute BCG gray workout shirt. I believe I purchased this item for $12.99. I also purchased some black tights, which I actually wrote about in my last OOTD blog post. The last BCG item I purchased was this gray sports bra. I have never purchased their bras before and I was so surprised when I first used it. Definitely my new favorite bra.

I am a huge shoe lover of course, so I had to purchase some shoes! I was able to purchase two gorgeous pairs of shoes!

I purchased these light gray with the metallic Nike symbol. I had actually seen these shoes when I was out of town, but they sadly did not have my shoe size. I had to wait till I got home to purchase them.

Last but not least these gorgeous shoes! I had been wanting some white converse for the longest time. I was always so afraid of purchasing white shoes, because of the fact that they get dirty easily. I finally decided to go for it and bought them, and I am so glad I purchased them! They are my favorite shoes at the moment.

So that is it for what I got for Christmas. I hope you enjoyed reading, and like always, make this week a great week!

Christmas Shopping Haul

Hello and happy Thursday! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays!

Before Christmas I did a little shopping for some presents! I am definitely going to shop ahead of time next year. All the stores were crazy packed!

IMG_3019.jpg

The first store I went to was Victoria’s Secret and that store was excessively packed. I was quite amazed how they didn’t run out of stuff. I was especially amazed at the workers there, and their ability to deal with so many people.

This year I wanted to get my aunts and older female cousins gifts. I never get them anything, so I wanted to do something nice for them. At Victoria’s Secret they had a fragrance/mist special. Usually their mists are about $18 each and I was able to get them for $6 each! I purchased not one, not two, but ten of their fragrances for only $60. At regular price I would’ve paid $180 for all ten fragrances, which is ridiculously expensive for me! Thank goodness for their promotions!

I also purchased two of their travel size fragrances for the price of one! All in all, I saved a total of $195, which is kind of a bargain if you ask me!

IMG_3020.jpg

Since I did spend over $75 I was lucky enough to receive a free tote! The retail price for this cute tote was $58, and I was able to get it for free! I also think the tote would make a cute christmas gift.

The next store I went to was Old Navy. I haven’t been to Old Navy in the longest time, but since I had heard an awesome promotion that they were having I decided to give it a go!

I purchased a really cute long sleeve for my cousin. The retail price for the long sleeve was $14.99 and I was able to get it only for $6! I also got two items for my boyfriend. He had told me that he had been wanting an army green sweater. I was so luck to find the perfect sweater for him, especially since it was the only one left in his size. The retail price for this sweater was $30 and I was able to get it for $10! Lately he has also really been into flannels so I also got him a flannel.

All in all I saved around $51 for these three items!

I then went to the dollar tree to buy a little bit of stuff for the goodie bags that I had planned. I really love the dollar tree when it comes to holidays/birthdays because they sell awesome decorations/knick knacks for a really affordable price!

The last place I went to was Ulta! I absolutely love this store, because they have pretty much all beauty products whether they’re sold at Sephora or at a grocery store. I only got two items from this place and they were not gifts for anyone. I was actually in need of these products.

IMG_3033.jpg

I purchased the Batiste dry shampoo. This is actually the first time I purchased this item and I am hoping I will like it. I also purchased some beauty rounds. I tend to use these to apply my concealer.

That is it for my shopping haul. I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed shopping for these items! Have a great day and happy holidays!
