Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

What's in my bag, January 2014

I was hell-bent on buying an expensive designer bag last month, but thought the better of it. One bag could get me a new Macbook, or that money can go a long way to fund my travel plans. I decided to just add that cash my savings and get a bag that's practical, yet still beautiful.

This blue Rabeanco tote is perfect. It's made of soft, light cow hide leather (smells soooo good), roomy enough to fit anything I'd throw into it, and makes my profile look slimmer. Lol. It's the perfect work bag for my 2014!

I like to call this "Smurf Blue". Haha. I don't know why, I just have this crazy addiction to cobalt and navy blue at the moment! Maybe it's because blue makes my skin look better and brighter than any other color, for some reason. Anyway here's what's currently inside my bag.

Alcohol spray and Watsons tissues. Is it possible to love tissue paper? I love these "mini-hankies" from Watsons. They're super thick and absorbent, unlike other pull-up tissues I've tried before. 

Smart iPhone 5. You're looking at one of my body parts. It's constantly attached to my hands.

Rabeanco wallet. This is the best wallet, ever. If I'm just stepping out I slip my phone and keys in it, turning it into a clutch.

Sunnies by Charlie. Boxy and big, just the way I like 'em!

Sketch book and pencil. Because I feel artsy lately. Really though, this is just a convenient way to take notes at a meeting and kill time while waiting for said meeting. The sketchbook is from Peter Pauper Press while the pencil is from Cretacolor (both purchased from Fully Booked).

This is the part where I confess an unhealthy desire to accumulate art materials and stationery. I just...hate running out of paper and pens/colors.

Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 5 and Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel. Together, these two create an amazing MLBB shade. ;)

Travel brush from Tokyo. Handy for retouching! I can't seem to find its plastic case so I keep it safe with a Charm Brush Guard.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish. Currently trying out this powder, will let you know soon how it is. I normally prefer to bring the MAC Blot or Clinique Even Better Foundation.

And that's that. ^_^ What's in your bag?
