Before I post the goods, here's my OOTD : Teacher Edition. YES, these were taken in my classroom (no students at the time, reeeelax). The next two days we have some serious down-time due to these senior projects from the other building coming in and needing graded (long story, won't bore you with details), so I just snapped two photos of my outfit & thought I'd post them.
[way to cut my head out of the photo; thanks, self-timer.]
Green Top - Target
Scarf - Not a clue (go me)
Skirt - Forever 21
Belt - Forever 21
Boots - Journeys
[close up of skirt & belt...]
Onto the REAL post. Here goes nothing....
Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Bag
(gifted to me by the boyfriend)
EVEN MORE INSIDE THE GOODS
Blackberry - I need a new phone, pronto! This is my life, though, it's like bberry has the ability to suck the life force out of you and make you obsessed with your phone. It's them, not me!
Coach Wristlet - Filled with favorite lipsticks, lipglosses, and lip balms - the rest have to stay at home.
iPod Nano (on top of wristlet) - Have no idea why I bought this, total impulsive spend. It is freaking adorable, though, and it does play my music, so I can't complain. No headphones because I plug it into my car.
Keys - Can't really go anywhere without these bad boys.
Purple Pencil Case - As a teacher, I cannot get enough of my highlighters, pens, pencils, etc. - they're ALL in there.
Pink "Rock Cat" Notebook - My friend got this for me from Urban Outfitters since I always say that I need to keep a notebook with me for last minute reminders and to-do lists; this is what she came up with. How cute is that kitten, though? So tacky but also so cute that I don't even care.
Sunglasses & Sunglasses Case - My current pair is by Betsey Johnson (so cute for summer) and the case is Forever21 from years ago.
Kimchi Wallet - Recent birthday gift, fits all the cards, money, etc.
Birth Control - HEY, I'm only human. Plus, this specific kind helps curb the breakouts, too, bonus!
Express Lipgloss - Sneaked out of the lipgloss bag! (Yes, it is sneaked and not snuck when you're writing, but both are acceptable in English speaking...for future reference.)
e.l.f. Lipstick in Pouty Petal - My on-the-go lipstick; so soft, simple, easy, love it (This is purposefully out of the lipgloss wristlet!)
Bamboo Cosmetic Bag - Fits the items I like to call the "hey, I do have that with me" products - i.e. hand lotion, hand sanitizer, and mini deodorant.
Black Cosmetic Bag - Fit the items I like to call the "hey, my face needs touching up" products - i.e. light bronzer, two concealers, rosebud salve, mini blush, mini powder, some makeup setting spray, three brushes; truth be told, the bronzer and salve are the only ones I use, but it feels good to have the whole arsenal there, like some sort of odd comfort blanket for me?!
[And yes, I know what you're thinking, but it does all fit (it's all inside in the bag photo). I'm nothing if not a completely efficient packer - I use the side turnlocks and front turnlocks to my advantage. This is the perfect bag to hide it all!]
So there you have it, the bag that holds my life. You can thank me later that I left out the tampons and condoms - kidding, I never carry that stuff with me. No, really, I'm the girl searching for a quarter to buy the tampons in the machine because I always forget to bring them with me. Actually, I lied again. I'm the girl that asks five other girls for one before breaking down and
Now I ask the classy question, "What's in YO bag, bitch?" Please post it and let me know!
Coming soon? A makeup review from me...look at this blogger goooo!
