The Weekend Bag



If I know I’ll be out for a while on a Saturday or Sunday, I tend to throw everything I own into my bag – you know, just in case. A brunch can turn into an all-day affair!

This Carla Mancini bag* is so soft, really roomy without being overly heavy to lug around, and is the perfect color + design for spring. What I love most about this style? It was featured on Revenge – who else loves Emily Thorne as much as I do?!

I’ve been carrying around this gorgeous cream hobo bag from Carla Mancini the past couple of days, so I thought I’d share what’s inside.

The Staples: Chanel wallet – always a staple in my bag, this large wallet has ample space for cards; JCrew leopard phone case – I love this case because it also doubles as a wallet – I keep my license and metro card in here for easy access; Express Sunglasses – I am still crazy about these really affordable sunnies – they come everywhere with me!

The Makeup: Blair Ritchey PAK mini – this small bag is the perfect size for storing all of the makeup I want to have with me on-the-go, and I am obsessed with the snake print!; Dior Lipstick in Cherie Bow – the most gorgeous natural pink lipstick; Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Balm in 02; Glossier Balm Dot Com; Real Techniques Buffing Brush; Rimmel Stay Matte Powder; Nude Stix Eye Pencil in Gilt; Charlotte Tilbury The Feline Flick Pen*; Mac Eye Kohl in Power Surge; Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk; Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Nude Kate*; L’Oreal Super Blendable Concealer; Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Ibiza*.

The Extras: Marble notebook – I carry this petite notebook around in order to make lists, and scribble down post ideas ; Bumble and Bumble Pret a Powder – for when I need to add a bit of volume ; Moroccan Jasmine Hand Cream – my hands have been so dry the past few weeks, this cream does the trick, and smells incredible.

What’s in your handbag this weekend?

    I’m going to look for those sunglasses next time I’m at the mall! I love the shape of the frames.

      I have worn them every day since I bought them! I love how affordable they are – they are such a great dupe for the Prada cat eye glasses 🙂

        I definitely need to look for them, I tend to lose my sunglasses so I stopped buying anymore expensive ones. These sound great!
