What’s in my school bag!

With the school year well under way, I thought I’d share what’s in my school bag! On days I don’t carry my laptop, I typically carry my tote bag. I have the Longchamp Large Black tote. I had my eye on this for awhile when one popped up on a Facebook Free & For Sale page for only $50! I absolutely love this bag and while I would hate to pay full price for it, I can see why it’s worth the investment. Let’s dive in:

School stuff…

  • Ban.do Planner: I think this particular style is sold out, but I would highly, highly recommend a planner from this brand. I love how large it is (I have a crazy semester), the colors, and has tons of fun stickers.
  • Sunglasses: The fastest way to cover tired eyes and look cool all at once.
  • Headphones: A must!
  • Ban.do ID wallet/keys: I love how colorful everything is from this brand!
  • Snack: Duh


Everyday Makeup Bag…

  • Life is Good Pouch
  • Makeup: BB Cream, concealer, powder, blush, and mascara. I keep my everyday face pretty simple. I like something that I can get done in under 5 minutes. I’ve even been skipping my brows lately…I’ve been letting them grow in a little and like them a lot.
  • Brushes: You know my latest obsession has been L.A.B.² makeup brushes. I thought I’d use the contour brush exclusively for contouring, but I’ve been using it mainly for blush! I use the foundation brush to blend out my concealer and the kabuki for powder. I love that the kabuki is really on-the-go friendly because of its size.

Some other things I often throw in my bag…

  • Whatever spiral I need for the class I’m headed to
  • Crave Naturals hair brush (my fave, review here)
  • Hand lotion (my latest one here)

What are your school bag essentials? Let me know!

    I used to use that Covergirl BB Cream all the time and loved it. I haven’t used it in ages and seeing it in your post makes me want to run to the drugstore and buy some, lol. Awesome post!

      Thank you! It’s just super nice and easy for everyday, doesn’t require too much blending!
