What's in My Beau Bag

Some of you may remember that I recently made a huge (well, huge for me, anyway) investment purchase on a Kate Spade Beau bag. I actually got the small Beau because after much research I found it'd work better for my lifestyle than the big one (plus with my small frame the big Beau bag seemed to overwhelm me). I wanted a bag that would take me from day to night, work to happy hour, and weekday to weekend. As I get older, I find that I don't have to carry as many things as I used to - no need to lug my laptop around with me all the time anymore (thank goodness!), just a few work and everyday essentials. So, without further ado, allow me to give you a peek inside my Kate Spade Beau bag:

  • Rebecca Minkoff Luma wallet: In my last "What's in My Bag" post, I asked you guys for suggestions on replacing my tired old wallet. Splurged after the holidays and bought myself a fancy designer wallet - much more age-appropriate and the color is very lovely! I can also fit my iPhone in there without stretching it out at all so it doubles a s a clutch sometimes too.
  • Kate Spade Pencil Pouch: I actually use this as a makeup pouch haha - inside, I carry a few basics like lipstick/lipgloss, a Tide stain remover pen, some blotting sheets, lip balm, mirror, and a tampon. I have had much experience with my makeup spilling out or lipstick caps falling off inside my purse so I ALWAYS make sure that they go inside a pouch of some sort to keep the interior of my Beau bag clean. I mean, the lining is SO pretty! It'd be such a shame if it got dirty because I was being careless.
  • Moleskine Planner: My planner goes wherever I go! I often find myself jotting down notes or blog post ideas.
  • Pencil Pouch from Korea: Just like with my makeup, I keep my pens inside a pouch. I can't even begin to describe how disappointed I get when pens (pens are the worst) explode or break inside my new purse (it's always a brand new and expensive purse this happens to, isn't it?). 
  • Pinch Provisions Minimergency kit: These things are life-savers! It's always amazing to me how they can get so many items in such a small space! Mine came with 21 things! In case you haven't heard of these, let me give you a list of some of the things I find quite useful that this kit gives me - bandaid, Advil, bobby pins, hair spray, clear nail polish, antacid, nail polish remover wipes, double sided tape, emory board, deodorant, etc. I'm telling you guys, everyone needs one of these in their lives. 
  • Lilly Pulitzer Keychain - I use this keychain for my work and house keys. I really like this keychain because it's also a USB drive!
  • iPhone 5S with Kate Spade Case: Can you guys tell I really like Kate Spade? haha I'm actually thinking of replacing this case at the moment. Any suggestions?
  • Lilly Pulitzer Backup iPhone Charger: I sometimes wonder how i lived my life without these. I get a lot of important work emails and during the weekdays I get a bit nervous that I might miss one when my phone runs out of batteries. These have been absolute (phone) life savers!
What did you guys of this edition of "What's in My Bag?" 


  1. I love that bag so much! And I love how organized you are with everything-- the pencil/makeup case is so cute-- I've been needing a new one! I have a Kate Spade case on my iPhone 4s and it's basically the one case I've ever used and it's seriously so durable- I love it! Though I have been loving all of her spring cases, which are making me want to upgrade to the 5 ;)

  2. The beau bag is too cute! Lucky you not having to carry around a laptop likes us poor college students lol. The kate spade case is too cute! As for recs, I'm more of a function over design gal in terms of iPhone cases, as I am extremely accident prone. In that case I would recommend the speck candyshell cases. I had one for my 4s and now have one for my 5s :) Love the lily pulitzer iphone charger! Definitely seems like a worthy investment :)


  3. Everything in your bag is so cute. I can see that you're very organized with your stuff. I used to make what's in my bag posts years ago. I wish I can make one this year. Anyway, have a great week! :)
