What's In My Bag + A New Purse Essential

With spring quickly turning into summer, I’ve been gearing up my wardrobe for warmer weather and changing my everyday accessories. I recently switched up my daily purse, and it got me to thinking about how long it’s been since I’ve shared what’s in my bag here on the blog. So, today I’ve planned a much overdue peek into what I carry around with me every day, including a new handbag essential from Tampax Radiant!What's In My Bag + A New Purse Essential

Over the years, the contents of my bag have slowly become more streamlined and downsized. When I was a teenager, I kept a ridiculous amount of items in my purse. Now, I’ve gotten much better at only keeping the things that I need and use most days (well, except for sunglasses…those still seem to accumulate like crazy). Besides staples like my wallet and keys, I always make sure to keep a small notebook on hand for blog ideas, as well as gum/mints, bobby pins and hair ties, sunglasses, pens, and some form of perfume. I recently started keeping my Instax camera in my bag so I can capture more little moments this summer, but when I don’t have that in there I’ll usually keep a book for dull moments.

My makeup bag typically houses the products that I’m currently using to create my everyday makeup look. Lately, I’ve really been loving the look of fresh, dewy skin paired with natural features – long lashes, fluffy brows, slightly stained lips, and glowing, healthy skin. I’m trying to enjoy this look as much as I can because in about a week I’m going to be switching things up to more gold and bronzy makeup for the summer.What's In My Bag + A New Purse Essential

A new item that I’ve recently added to my bag are the Tampax Pocket Radiant Tampons! I usually keep a few tampons in my purse for emergencies but they can feel kind of bulky and take up a lot of room, especially when I’m carrying a smaller bag. Now that Tampax has made pocket-size tampons, I’m able to keep some in my purse without them getting in the way. Tampax Radiant has recently gotten a refresh, with updated floral designs along with the new pocket size. Pocket Radiant features all of Tampax’s key qualities, like their superior width-wise expansion and LeakGuard Braid protection system, as well as a purple pocket-size applicator and a unique re-sealable wrapper. It’s the perfect fit for your purse – no matter what else you’re carrying around!

    I find I tend to keep just what I need in my handbag now, particularly if i am on the go as carrying a heavy load doesn’t bode well for the shoulders!

    I love a good old What’s in my Bag? post, they are always super interesting and it was great to hear about the new tampax radiant – they look perfect for just popping in your handbag and the packaging is downright pretty! I am currently keeping my film camera in my bag, because although it is heavy it is totally worth it to catch amazing memories – just like your Instax (although that sounds a bit more practical!)
