Hello, everybody! I hope you had a wonderful month. I’ve had a great time not going to school and transitioning into full-time work. I have tried a lot of new things this month and I want to share a few of the things that I am obsessed with!
Sunglasses- I have no idea what brand these sunglasses are. I found them at Ross for $4 and I instantly fell in love. I feel so fierce when I wear them.
Target wallet- I have been needing a new wallet for the longest time. My previous wallet was so bulky. This is nice because it has a wrist strap so I don’t have to take my purse. My phone can even fit inside and I can clip my keys onto it. I got this for around $15.
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation- I have not tried anything in the fit me range before. I got the dewy and smooth finish because I have been very into that dewy look recently. I have combination skin and this does not make my face oily at all. This looks so nice on the skin and I don’t even feel the need to set it. The foundation still looks good at the end of the day. I bought this at Target in the shade Ivory for $6.
Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Conditioner- My main shampoo and conditioner for my hair is the Yes to Tea Tree and Sage Oil for my dry scalp. I don’t like to use that conditioner throughout my hair because it can dry out my hair. So I use the tea tree one on my scalp and this one throughout the rest of my hair. This makes my hair shiny and soft. My hair is very damaged and I have been loving this! I got this at Target for $5.
Pacifica Cactus Water Makeup Wipes- I’ve recently got into using makeup wipes again so I’ve been trying all different kinds. These smell so good and are very soft! I also got these at Target for $6. (Can you tell I love Target?)
I very much needed to clean out my purse. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone through my purse and got rid of things I don’t need. I don’t really know if people like these kinds of things, but go ahead and let me know if you do or not. First I’ll show you what my purse looks like. I got this purse at target last year. It was probably around $30. The gray (grey? Which way is it spelled?) is really nice because it goes with pretty much everything. The Front pocket is so nice to keep little things in. On the inside of the main part there are a couple of little pockets too.
Now I’m going to show you what I keep in the front part of the purse. I have two things of lotion and a chapstick. I really only use the bath and body works lotion so I should probably get rid of the other one. Lip balm is an absolute essential! I cannot live without it. Dramamine is also something that’s nice to have because I get motion sickness in the car. So if I happen to go on a long car ride somewhere then I already have some handy. This is everything I keep in that front pocket for easy access.
These all came from my main pocket and are things I never leave out of my purse. First is my wallet and keys. I don’t think I really need to explain why those are essentials. My wallet is also from target and I think it goes with purse really nicely. Then I have a pen. Whenever I have the pen I don’t need it, but when I need a pen I don’t have it. Does that happen to anyone else? I also have pepper spray because I usually get off work late. You can never be too safe. My last essential is a pouch to keep tampons and liners in. My fellow ladies will understand.
Of course I have random pieces of trash in my purse that I don’t need. This is surprisingly not as much trash as there usually is. I have a random SD card and I don’t know whats on it. There’s a receipt, empty headache medicine, and a glass wipe. Also, if you read my January favorites you’ll see that there’s a guava ball right there. I try to keep some snacks in my purse at all times. Well that’s everything that’s in my purse. Let me know what your purse essentials are and if there’s anything unusual you keep in there.
