Hi there. It’s time for another fun edition of What’s In the Bag? The bag today is an oldie but goodie from Coach. I don’t think my bag is still around so I linked a similar style above. Tis the season for trips to the airport and nights out at restaurants with family and friends so I’ve switched from my well loved tote bags to a small cross body one. A smaller bag really forces you to edit what you lug around. I managed to fit what I consider my basics into this one.

The sunglasses are a new purchase. I finally had to retire my old ones. I think I’ve had them since I started the blog. I like a simple large black frame which is very difficult to find. When I find a pair that works I keep them for a long time. I’ve been testing out the Supergoop! line and so far I’m quite pleased. The hand cream pictured above is the perfect size for when you’re on the go. The Origins Ginger Essence Skin Scent is almost finished because I’ve been spritzing it every chance I get. I plan to go back for a full sized bottle and a back up travel sized one soon. I must have a lip balm on me. If I forget  to bring one I’m going home. I’d give the Smith’s balm a B-. It has a gel/ointment like consistency which gives you a nice sheen but I think it could be a little more emollient. The Berry Sinner lipstick from Lipstick Queen is probably my most reached for shade. You can tell from the wear and tear on the bullet in the bag shot how loved it is. Berry Sinner is a reddish brown creamy lipstick that works when I’m dressing down or dressing up. 

So there you have it. My last What’s in The Bag post of 2017. What’s closing out the year in your bag?

    Pretty chic! As usual you have a pretty succinct well organised bag. I like that you've rated the lip balm B- haha I'm planning to review my lip balm collection so I may borrow that grading system. I've been thinking about stepping up my bag game in the future – I think Coach bags look like a great investment. Thanks for sharing :)!

      Ohhh that sounds like a great post. I'll be on the look out for it. I love Coach's non monogrammed leather bags.
