In my latest IGTV video, I discussed some key products that I keep in my bag. This carry-all is my go-to style. It can keep me from school, work to dinner with friends. The perfect ‘it’ bag that everyone needs in their wardrobe. Learn what’s in my bag.


Coach Lillie Carryall

Of course, this handbag is what I consider to be an investment piece. I adore Coach bags for the quality that the brand still brings to us today. Not only that this bag is real leather, but it is also a great piece for college students who want to invest more into their wardrobe in entry-level luxury fashion. I selected this bag in the Im/Black shade with silver hardware. It is also has a cross bag attachment that you can use to carry it around. I tend to use this bag more as a tote.


Dior Lip Glow

One of my favorite lip products of all time is the Dior Lip Glow. This product gives me the perfect amount of moisture while tinting my lips. I recommend this in the shade ‘004 Coral’ for the perfect pink coral shade for those with darker lips. 


Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb

I love a good lip gloss in my bag. One of my favorites is the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in the shade ‘Sweet Mouth’. The perfect pink nude color for as a topper of my Dior Lip Glow. I can wear this with any beauty look. 


Tom Ford Beauty Luxe Moisturizing Lip Gloss

Of course, every woman needs to have a second option of lip gloss. One of my favorite brands is Tom Ford Beauty with their special glosses. I chose the shade 006 Sugar Pink in the past, but it was recently renamed ‘06 Ravish’.


Travelo Refillable Fragrance Sprayer

One of the secret products that I use on a daily basis is this refillable fragrance sprayer. I prefer to carry this in my bag because it is chic and fashionable. I use it to fill my spray bottle with my signature day scent with the pump mechanism at the end of the bottle. You can purchase one here.


Poopourri Travel Size Sprayer

It doesn’t hurt to have this in your bag. Poopourri is for those special occasions when you need to go to the ladies’ room. You can purchase one here.


Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Creme

One of my favorite body care products comes from this brand. I have the matching body creme that stays on my vanity at home. I keep a hand lotion in my bag as a fragrance layer support and to make sure my hands are not dry. Find my favorite one here.


Tide Laundry To Go Stick

You need this stick in your bag if you are someone that always heads out to eat. You never know when you stop and get something on your beautiful dress. I always update to keep one in my bag and in my car. 


Contact Drops 

I wear contacts daily and I find my eyes can become dry with harsh weather. To keep them and my contacts hydrated, I keep my favorite drops in my bag. 


Business Card Wallet

I keep a business card wallet in my bag because you never know who you will meet out. I carry my business cards here and ones that I collect from my days out. I make sure to write down where I met them and the date. 


Touch Land Power Mist Hand Sanitizer 

One of my favorite spray hand sanitizers that comes in different scents. My favorite is the Aloe Vera version for how it makes my skin feel while cleansing my hands



I find that I am double masking more than ever before. Before I use my cotton mask, I use a disposable one that I purchased in bulk from Home Depot.


All of these things keep my bag as the perfect companion to my day-to-day. From going from university to the office, I make sure that I am ready for the next adventure.
