BookBags (11): What's In Alexa's Bag?

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

Since my last BookBags / What's In My Bag post was such a success - I'm doing another one! And today, we're going to see what's in Alexa's bag.

Bag: Black Coach bag that I got for Christmas (I don't know the style, which makes me a horrible person, lol)

  1. Kate Spade clutch that I use as a wallet, receipt holder and MetroCard
  2. Current read (And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard)
  3. My book blog planner & life planner (both from May Designs)
  4. A Sharpie
  5. A Pen (That's my favorite kind, by the way.)
  6. A "Keep Calm and Read On" pouch from Gaby, which contains all my toiletries like a toothbrush, brush and hand lotion (I like Vaseline!)
  7. My keys
  8. An external battery
  9. My iPod classic and earphones
  10. A medicine kit
  11. An umbrella
  12. My mini make-up kit (Eos lip gloss, Maybelline Baby Lips, Revlon lipstick, Vera Wang Princess rollerball, Revlon lip balm, Maybelline mascara and a few more things)

There are also a few other things I toss in sometimes -- especially snacks!

Thanks Alexa for doing this guest post!
(I really like that "Keep Calm and Read On" pouch btw.)

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

  1. The "Keep Calm Read On" pouch is so cute I need one!!!
    I always love seeing what's in other people's bags, as weird as that sounds...ha!

  2. That is a super cute pouch, oh my goodness.

    AND THE PLANNERS! I love the planners!

  3. Alexa's purse is so cute! And the idea of carrying an external battery is really practical. I probably should do that. Thanks for sharing!

  4. That Keep Calm and Read On pouch is so cute! ALSO KATE SPADE FOR THE WIN. :D I love everything by her. I love EOS lip balm! I have so many of them because I like to be able to put lip balm in every purse I own haha. Also, I can't wait to hear your thoughts on And We Stay! I liked it, but I know not everyone did.

  5. Is Alexa using a g-tec pen? ;) Love the bag, the pouch and those cute notebooks! It's so adorable that Alexa keeps a sharpie in her bag! AND AHHH I JUST LOVE THIS FEATURE!!!

  6. I'm loving all the love that my pouch is getting! It's all thanks to Gaby, who got it for me before I left for the Philippines last year. But seriously, just looking at this picture makes me realize how much I regularly carry in my bag on a daily basis -- it's almost like weight lifting at this point!

  7. I love that pen, "Keep Calm" pouch and the notepads. NICE! I am new to your blog..I love it.

  8. Love this!! A carries NOTHING in comparison to me :- X. Guilt overwhelms me!

    Loveeeee the may books so much!


with love,
