Photos of My Life No. 3: Inside My Bag
Posted on: 8th of June 2010 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

For my third set of Photos of My Life, an anonymous reader requested a look inside my bag. The last time I posted the contents of my handbag was way back in 2007 when I did the Face Your Pockets Project, so I had fun doing this.


Click image for a slightly bigger size.

Bag: Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Petit Noe (Brown). I love this bag, because I can use it with almost anything in my closet. It’s big enough to carry a lot of my junk too.

Inside: Book (I read everywhere, so I always bring a book with me), Aldo wallet, hairbrush, Charm stippling brush, M.A.C. lipstick in Brick-O-La, M.A.C. Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach, M.A.C. Studio Fix in NC35, Smith’s Rosebud Salve, mints, a tiny bottle of lotion, travel pack tissue (I always stock up on these when I’m in Manila… they don’t have this size here!), house keys, Cotton On shades (my sensitive eyes can’t live without sunnies), hair tie, metal Parker Jotter pen in pink, iPod touch (I use this mostly to play games. Current addictions: Scramble, Words with Friends and Angry Birds), iPod earphones, BlackBerry Curve 8320, Canon Ixus 80is, moleskine notebook.

This is already a scaled down version of the things that I usually stuff in my bag (I usually carry more makeup). I try to bring only the essentials now.

I also enjoy peeking inside other people’s bags, so show me what’s inside yours too. :)

    ooh. cute louis bag. :) the style is unique too. that’s my dream-to have a louis bag. hehehe… :D you just inspired me to buy an aldo wallet. i looked into the aldo store during my lunch one day and discovered some great deals. i haven’t bought anything yet. hopefully they’ll have some on wallets. :D that wallet is gorgeous. :D

    I love LV bags! They’re expensive, but they last a lifetime. My mom has one that she’s had for over 12 years, and it’s still in pretty good condition until now. I say they’re definitely a great investment. :) Yeah, I love the Aldo wallet too. I love how it has so many different pockets that I can stuff a lot of cards/receipts in it. Can’t wait to see your new wallet. ;)

    wow. a bag for over 12 years? that’s amazing how LV’s really do last long. :D it’s nice to have a bag that doesn’t fall apart after several uses.

    i’m amazed with all the pockets the aldo wallet provides. in my old wallets, i don’t know where else to fit coupons and receipts and stuff. this new wallet has plenty of compartments to choose from. thank you so much for inspiring me to buy a wallet from them. i was very happy with my purchase and the price too. it was a good deal. :D i may be buying bags there soon too. i have a 15% off coupon for filling their survey. :D

    i will surely feature an entry of what’s inside the new makeup drawers. thanks for the idea. :D

    take care, anz. :D

    Those coupons are evil. They pressure you to shop more! LOL! Show us what you end up buying, k? :)

    Take care! :)

    The Rosebud Salve was one of the first things I recognised.. which is funny, considering its size in context to the rest of the items that are in your bag. =)

    I like the colour of your bag too. I heard similar stories about LV bags, too, because they’re so well-made. =)

    Yup, LV bags are really expensive, but I can say they’re worth every cent. :)

  4. You have ripe peach!!!! We’re so jealous right now!

    Yes, ripe peach is LOVE! :)
