Whats In My Bag

whats in my bag little miss mommaWhat is it about getting a new bag that makes me absolutely giddy? Even more than shoes or makeup or jewelry. I’m pretty sure that a bags are my retail love language. And it’s safe to say that I fell hard when this Kelly Moore bag arrived on my doorstep. Leather and stripes–need I say more. kelly moore bag squareI took it to the Elevate Conference this weekend, more on that later.

I’ve been on the hunt for a versatile camera bag for quite some time.  But I knew I also wanted it to function as an everyday bag even when I wasn’t lugging my camera around. The talented girls at A Beautiful Mess partnered with Kelly Moore to create this professional yet still totally stylish bag that can also double as a diaper bag.  It fits my MacBook Pro and my camera with plenty of room to spare. And I’m loving how the brown leather changes shades depending how the light reflects from it.  kelly moore bag and little miss momma

So here are a few of my favorite things to load into my purse.  whats inside my bag

1. Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators
2. Glasses case from The Pleated Poppy
3. Cover FX foundation compact for those quick fixes when I’m out and about
4. Pocket mirror
5. Hand sanitizer
6. EOS lip balm. The sweet mint is my favorite.
7. Gussy Sews pouch where I keep all my lip glosses and balms.
8. Fresh Sugar Cherry lip treatment. I swear by this stuff you guys. It’s tinted so it makes my lips tinted red without the look and feel of lipstick.
9. Maybeline Baby Lips: I love this stuff too.  It’s a great, inexpensive alternative to Fresh Sugar. Moisturizing, with a bit of tint.  It does NOT look as bright on as it does in the stick, I promise.

    I so want a Kelly Moore!!! Now that I have an extra lens, I need a more functional bag so I don’t have to carry the box or an extra tote. Does your style have a “name” for future reference?

    First of all, you looked so gorgeous at elevate. I absolutely loved your outfit! (still kicking myself for not saying hi and telling you how much i adore you. bleh, next year!) and that bag is just amazing. Quiet books are life-savers and I always carry a small container of vaseline to help with chapped lips (have done that forever since my mama taught me that tip, and I’ll continue to do it – even if people look at me funny if they spot the inside of my bag for some reason) 😉

    It’s a good looking bag, for sure! I have a bag of pens on me at all times- I write things down as well and I love a good colorful list!

    Having read this I believed it was rather informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy
    to put this information together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
