I take this bright pink striped bag with me everyday when I go to work, adding in whatever products or items I think I’ll want during the workday. It changes everyday, but this is what I took to work with me most recently.
Hurraw! Lip Balm in Chai Spice – I must apply lip balm around a dozen times a day. I think part of that is habit, part of it is I love the smell, and the other part is that I cannot stand for my lips to be dry. This scent is so nice for fall.
Beauty Without Cruelty Super Cover Cream Concealer in Fair – This pencil concealer is perfect for touch-ups at work. It’s not the concealer I use when I apply makeup in the morning, but its so convenient to keep this in my bag for when I’m out of the house.
Oil Blotting Papers (similar) – I always keep these on hand. I don’t use them as much as I used to, primarily because my skin seems drier this past year. But these are perfect if I have excess oil or shine on my T-zone.
Comb, Hair Tie, Nail File – These are un-fancy for sure, but I use the comb every day to smooth out my hair. And nobody wants to get caught with a snagged fingernail and no file.
Gemstone Organic Ylang Ylang Gem Hydrosol – When I first heard of this brand, I jumped over to their website to see their products. Adorable packaging, fascinating gem information, and wonderful ingredients. This was my first purchase. I love that there are little gems actually in the bottom of the hydrosol bottle. Ylang Ylang is used as an anti-depressant in aromatherapy. I’ve been using this as a pick-me-up during the workday. I’ve ordered one of their crèmes and can’t wait to try it out.
Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipstick in XOX – I received this in my Petit Vour box – and I love it! I’m more of a skincare girl than makeup (though I do love makeup) so I’m glad I received this because otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it. It smells like delicious coconuts, is hydrating, and the color is a beautiful everyday pink.
Travel Journal (similar) – Ever since I bought this little journal, I’ve been taking it with me in my bag everyday. I have been struggling with some anxiety, and I also deal with S.A.D. so I’ve found this journal so comforting and soothing when I feel stressed, anxious, or just a bit down. I’ve been filling the pages with quotes that inspire and comfort me. I especially like to re-read the quotes that help me manage my anxiety.
Lotus Wei Inner Peace Flower Elixir – Since I purchased this a couple of weeks ago, I’ve put five drops of this sweet flower elixir under my tongue a few times a day, everyday . It has an immediate and tangible calming effect on me. Instantly, I feel more relaxed and less anxious. I won’t leave the house without it now!
