BookBags (10): What's In My Bag


Monthly feature where I pair books with bags or share what's in a bag (mine or otherwise!) est. 4/2013.

Have you ever seen those cute "What's In My Bag?" posts? (I like the ones at A Beautiful Mess!) I've been wanting to do one for a while and Estelle gave me the idea to incorporate the post with my Bookbags feature. And here we are! I thought it would be a fun way to change things up PLUS I almost always have a book (or iPad or technically my phone counts too since I have the Kindle app on there) to read. So this still fits my book + bag requirements!


[starting with the bag, clockwise]
Kate Spade bag I got during Black Friday (I love the color!) // Light Planner which is my attempt at being more organized // Current read - Asunder by Jodi Meadows // Coach slim wallet // keys (with my Mind the Gap keychain from London) // Wristlet with blotting sheets, lip gloss (I love Julep's), hand lotion (L'Occitane is my favorite) and lip balm // gum, tissues, hair clip // phone & headphones. 

What book (and other cute things) are in YOUR bag right now?

PS. If you'd be interested in doing a guest "What's In My Bag" post on my blog,

  1. Ohh I love this! Your phone case is super cute! I love the "Mind the Gap" keychain, too, and I hope I'll be able to visit London one day. I don't carry too many things in my bag, though, just a wallet, keys, lotion and occasionally a notebook and pen if I'm going to an event.

    1. I tend to carry a lot in my bag unless I know I'm going to be walking around a lot. In that case I try to save my shoulders some pain and carry as little as possible lol.

      PS. I hope you visit London soon too! :)

  2. I did one of these on my blog last year. They are so fun to do and share. Right now I have Stolen: A Letter to my Captor by Lucy Christopher in my bag. As for cool, hmm, maybe my gold Starbucks coffee collar. I know, I live dangerously. ;-)

    Cute bag by the way.

    1. So I had to google "gold Starbucks coffee collar" lol. And anything that has to do with coffee is cool in my book ;)

  3. I love this post! And your bag, it is super cute! (I want one!)

    I carry tons of things in my bag... A planner too! (Only recently started to get more organized and so far I'm very happy with the result) always a book, currently Summer On the Short Bus by Bethany Crandell. I carry my iPod, my iPhone, some lip-gloss and hand-moisturizer, and some pencils. Not to forget my wallet and (car)keys.

    1. Thank you! I haven't heard of Summer On the Short Bus - I hope it's good so far. And if it is, let me know!

    2. I finished it and it was a beautiful (5 star!) read! I had the hardest time writing my review because of all those Feels running through me, they had me stumbling over my own words. I just posted it on my blog and I really hope others will like it as much as I did!

      I'll recommend it to anyone who's willing to listen! *subtle way of saying that you really should read it when you get the chance haha*

    1. Thanks! I do too! It was fun to do something different for this feature. Maybe you'll want to do a guest "What's In My Bag?" post in the future? :)

  6. I love that you're doing this as part of BookBags! I seriously like checking out what people have in their bags (like a creeper/stalker sometimes), because it also helps the viewer get an idea of what a person's like too. [I also seriously love that you are reading ASUNDER. More Sam, always.]

    1. Hahah thanks! I like checking out what people have in their bags too. And I agree, it does give you some insight into the person!

      And yes - SAM. <3

  7. LOVE your bag!! It's beautiful!

    I think we've got the same wallet, only mine's purple. I love it! So slim and it still fits so much!

    I'd love to be organized enough to use a planner. Maybe one day!

    1. That is exactly why I love that wallet! I needed one that wouldn't take up too much space in my bag. Since I usually carry around a lot of stuff lol.

      And if you do decide to get a planner, I really like the one I have :)

  8. Woah this new combined feature thing looks awesome! I totally need to read Asunder but I wasn't too crazy about Incarnate so I might hold off on reading it. I can't wait to see what you think of it though! The bag itself is super cute and all the items in it match perfectly! Aw the planner is such a nice blue & that wallet is super cute! Thanks for sharing, this was really fun to read! :D

  9. Oh my gosh this is so cute!! I love seeing what other people carry around because sometimes I feel like I carry my whole life with me (which I pretty much do) and I'm curious what others carry around. That phone case is super cute. Also, LOVE THE BAG.
