What's In My Backpack?

The last time I did a 'What's In My Bag?' was way back in May (see post here). During that time I rarely lugged a bag around, but when I had to, I carried a tiny crossbody with me. Now that I've gone back to work, I use a backpack to carry my stuff around with me. Before we jump into the contents of my bag, I just want to give a shoutout to my lovely bag that I've been loving. It's a faux leather backpack* from Zaful. It's pretty spacey, so I could fit a whole bunch of crap in there. But what I really love about it is that the inside is a gorgeous light purple shade. I know nobody's going to really see it, but I just love that little detail. Other than that, it's a very sturdy and well-made bag that I've been using non-stop for the past few weeks. And now onto what's inside: 

I pretty much carry most of the same things as I mentioned in my last 'What's In My Bag?' like my Lauren Ralph Lauren Slim Wallet, pink coin purse from Indigo, a little Sephora pocket mirror, and the Florabotanica Rollerball. Newer things to the line up are these three lippies: the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Lolita & Bow N Arrow and the Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Bound. I like to keep these in my bag because they're all work appropriate and easy to throw on. Basically, they're the three that have been on rotation for the past few weeks. Another addition is The Body Shop's handcream in Vanilla Chai. I actually bought 3 handcreams from them, the other two being Strawberry and Almond, which I've been rotating as well. They've come in really handy to help combat the dry Winter air. I also like to keep the Vichy Lip Balm* in there as my lips tend to get extra dry during this time of the year. Other than the cards in my wallet, I have my business cards & a Tim Hortons gift card (thanks Dad!). 

What I didn't include in the photo, as they wouldn't be too flattering to see, is a bunch of feminine products just in case Mother Nature decides to come and slap me in the face. Also not included is the endless amount of receipts crunched up in the bottom of my bag from all my Christmas shopping. 

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.

Are you done your Christmas shopping?
