You Are What Your Bag Eats

Spin Pins - best invention for buns to stay put (hun) | Vaseline Lip Therapy - simply the best moisturizing lip product in my book 
LePen(s) - My favorite fine tip markers | Sour Patch Kids - I have a sugar problem, lets be real here 
The Markings Notebook - my favorite notebook because of how sleek and simple it is | Comb - for the bangs, duh

So, if I am what my [work] bag eats, then that makes me a walking office. A walking office that desperately needs a shoulder massage because of the amount of mobile hoarding I'm doing.

My job requires me to schlep around a number of things besides my own purse and tools to keep me connected, so I have to really put thought into what items I can bring and what purse to use. It also doesn't help that I'm already a hoarder. You know, big girl problems.

I really can't complain though, because I love my job and I'm pretty sure I've got trapezius muscles of steel!
Yep, made a totally uneducated guess on that.

On that note, I've been thinking about purchasing a nice bag that I can carry for formal meetings and events for work. I won't be foolish enough to carry my laptop in one of them (maybe), but definitely want it to fit the iPad and all my other goodies. Here are some of my favorite (and also out of my budget) handbags from Kate Spade New York:

I've got a bit of a hankering to purchase a backpack - so I'm loving the Allen Street Britain for being great on the back as well as stylish on the arm.

What's your favorite bag for work?



  1. Hi Eunice,

    I wanted to say hi and say thanks for visiting my blog.

    I love your take on a "What's in the bag" post it's a fun twist.

    Have a good day!


    1. Hi Anna!

      Thanks so much for stopping by :) I love your blog and your shop!! :)

  2. I love that you have sour patch kids in your purse. The blue KS bag is my favorite!

    xo, Yi-chia

    1. Hi Yi-chia!

      There's always an excuse to have sugar right?! :) Yes!! It's so cute and just the size I'd like - now it's just getting myself to save for one ;)

  3. Haha - I like your title. Isn't it the truth?! My fav work bag is similar to the blue one, but in magenta. It's a little obnoxious, but I love it so much.

    (If you're interested, I'm giving away a Stella Valle necklace. Details here.)

    1. Hahah SO the truth! :) I love magenta! Obnoxious is the best- the brighter the better :)

      I will check your giveaway out for sure! :)

  4. Eunice, can I say that we have similar things in our bags (LePens, notebook, sour patch kids! blackberry) AND our blog layout looks kind of similar (don't you think?).. what does this mean? Probably that we're both awesome :) I'm also trying to find a nice work bag for when I graduate and get out there in the real world! I love all of these Kate Spades. I personally would probably get the backpack because I could use it as a camera bag too!


    1. Victoria!! I agree that we are both awesome - and appreciate darling and SWEET things!! :)

      Yes!! A work bag is SO worth it :) I need to save up for one of these Kate Spades :)

      Right? I've also been shopping for a camera bag so that backpack would be great for it!! BTW - do you have a camera bag that you love?


I would love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave any comments, questions, and suggestions! Or just a little love. Love is nice too :)
