Details: Celine Grainy Leather Micro Luggage Tote (similar options, here and here)
I recently received this gorgeous Celine bag in partnership with Trendlee and I’m so obsessed with it! It’s the perfect size for holding all of your bag essentials (and most of the non-essentials, too) and the color goes with absolutely everything.
If you aren’t already familiar with Trendlee, it’s a luxury consignment website where you can find preowned designer handbags for up to 80% off retail. Not only is authenticity guaranteed for every single item, but also they have fast & easy shipping/returns. They have a highly curated collection of all the best designer bags including Chanel, Hermes, Celine, Chloe and so many more. If you’re like me and love a stunning classic piece that you can wear for years but at an affordable price then Trendlee is an amazing place to start your collection!
For the sake of time, I’m including some essentials that are always in my bag. If I went through each and every item that finds it’s way into my bag we’d most likely be here most of the day. Anyone else get me on that? Hello, 37 lipsticks, 28 receipts, etc., etc.
My Handbag Essentials
Dior Color Reviver Lip Balm– Speaking of lip products, this is actually one worth mentioning because in my opinion if you’re only going to put one lip product in your purse this is the one. I’ve been using this product for years and there’s a few reasons why it’s so amazing. First, it’s technically a lip balm so it’s actually super hydrating while also giving some color pay-off at the same time. Second the color adjusts to match your skin tone/lip color which makes it designed to be super flattering on every person. Bonus: it’s 20% off right now for the Sephora VIB sale!
Tata Harper Hydrating Essence– I always, ALWAYS carry some type of hydrating spray with me, especially during the colder, winter months. It really helps to give your skin a little refresh on the go. It’s also really helpful when you’re traveling to combat dry skin while flying. I’m not partial to any one brand to be completely honest, but I’ve been using this one since being gifted this sample and it does the trick!
Kate Spade card holder– This essential is pretty self explanatory but it’s alway super important to carry business cards with you and having a cute card holder doesn’t hurt. This one is obviously over-the-top gold & sparkly so naturally I had to have it. I also love this option as well just in case over-the-top and sparkly isn’t your thing. 😉
Earbud/Cord holder– This is one of those things that you don’t really think you need but then once you have it you’re not quite sure how you ever lived without it. If you’re anything like me and have on average 5-10 cords of some sort floating around in your bag at any given moment then this is absolutely essential. It keeps everything from getting tangled and also just generally makes me feel like I have my $hit together (even when I don’t). You can also have them personalized which makes them a super cute gift/stocking stuffer option!
YSL Black Opium travel perfume– This perfume is one of my all time favorites, so I of course have to carry it with me anywhere I go. If you’re a fan of warm, rich scents with a spicy/vanilla undertone then you absolutely have to try this perfume. It’s one of the few scents that I will continually repurchase and having the travel size is so convenient especially if you’re on-the-go a lot. Side-note to hear about more of my travel essentials read this post!
Tory Burch card holder– Although I do own an excessively large wallet which holds most of my life in it, I love using a small card for my essentials on a daily basis. If I switch to a smaller cross-body purse it’s super convenient to know that I can just take this and have everything I need. It’s also a great option if you use public transportation like I do, so that you can quickly scan your metro card without having to take it out.
So there you have it! All of the essentials that I carry in my bag on a daily basis. Thanks for stopping by and let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
