I recently purchased a few things to add some color to my handbag. It’s summer so I travel LIGHT. I don’t like big bags or heavy shoulder straps. I like easy to carry items that can fit in a pocket, or even better, my cosmetic bag! I feel like I’ve written a lot of these kinds of posts lately, but I promise they all have a purpose. I have to be intentional with my time and my energy lately, since I feel like I don’t have enough of either. I plan, I schedule, I organize. I also have to find a way to reminder important dates and keep track of the way my body feels.
For this girl on the go, I always carry a pen and notebook. I have to track my cycle, my meals, my to dos. If it’s not written down, I basically can guarantee that I will forget it. I also know that I need a place to brain dump all my important thoughts. You never know when inspiration strikes! These tiny mini notebooks have lots of room for meal plans and notes too.
One of the notebooks I purchased even has a schedule so I can map out my meals. This is such a huge time saver in the kitchen!
I also have a soft cosmetic bag that fits all my essentials. I need a nail file, sunglasses, and those MUST HAVE feminine products! All of my handbag favorites were spotted at Target. I pretty much all my free time there scouring the aisles. From colorful nail polish to simple dinners to toiletries, they have everything that I could want.
Let’s see what else is in my bag. I carry around a book, my phone, a magazine, and a bag with my pens and planner accessories. My handbag is lightweight, but it still has room for all these essentials.
