Tia Wong - whats in my bag

Bag: Givenchy Antigona Medium / Camera: Canon – PowerShot ELPH 350 / Polaroid camera: FujiFilm – Instax Mini 8 / Sunglasses: Ditto (Get one free month when you use code: TIAALESE) / Headphones: NCredible / Blotterazzi: Beauty Blender / Flower Bomb Perfume: c/o Viktor & Rolf / Makeup Bag: MAC

 This weekend I went to Denver to surprise my sister for her graduation from Johnson and Wales and decide while I was packing that I’d quickly do a “What’s In My Bag” post since I haven’t done one in forever.  I recently got the medium Givenchy Antigona in black and have been loving it to death. I love the size of this bag and it made the perfect carry on to hold all of my goodies for this trip.  For this Denver trip I packed my favorite Miu Miu shades, two of my new cameras, wireless headphones, MAC makeup bag full of my everyday makeup needs, goodies from my Influenster Bloom VoxBox, Flower bomb perfume. The bag was also large enough to throw my laptop in and wasn’t overly heavy or stuffed.

Tory Burch Flip Flop

“Miller” Flip Flop Tory Burch

The Tory Burch flip flop in this sand patent, is a must for Spring and my current obsession! They come in 5 additional colors and I’m slightly tempted to buy them all.  I’m normally not a fan of flip flops for everyday wear but lately with my work schedule being so crazy I’m in such a rush in the morning that I slip these on and am out the door.  I love these because they have a great structure and design and don’t look as casual as most flip flops.  These flip flops are perfect for a casual day in jeans and a tee and are also perfect to pair with a cute sun dress for Spring.

Givenchy Antigona Leather Satchel Bag: Neiman Marcus

The other weekend I was out shopping at Neiman Marcus and walked past the purse section and had a moment of weakness. I was deciding between a new YSL purse or this gorgeous Givenchy Antigona leather satchel bag and clearly we see who won.  The YSL shoulder bag is adorable and the perfect purse for going out but I have a lot of trips coming up and figured a larger purse to travel with would make more sense so I went with this beauty.

Degree MotionSense Dry Spray Antiperspirant

 MotionSense Dry Spray Antiperspirant: c/o Degree

Since I work so much and never know when I’ll really be able to hit the gym I always keep my gym bag packed and in my trunk so I’m ready incase I have time. The other day I had to keep a bunch of stuff in my trunk for a shoot so I moved my gym bag to my back seat and opened it up at the gym to a very unpleasant surprise. My lovely deodorant stick that I keep in my gym back wasn’t closed all the way and melted due to the heat wave we’ve been having and got my entire bag covered in melted deodorant.

That night I went home to find this Influenster box with this new Degree motion sense dry spray antiperspirant and was so excited because now I won’t have to deal with melted deodorant sticks anymore.  In the past I’ve loved spray on deodorant because it’s quick and easy but I have found that some don’t offer as much protection as the stick.  This new Degree formula is amazing and lasts all day which I absolutely love!

L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil

Loreal extraordinary Oil shampoo system - L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil

I am so excited to team up with L’Oréal Paris and try out their new Extraordinary Oil line. The L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Shampoo collection is their newest line and is made to help revive dry and lifeless hair.  Their new Extraordinary Oil Complex consists of Coconut, Argan, Chamomile, Amla, Soja, and Sunflower. It provides deep nourishment without the weight for amazing lustrous, touchably soft hair. My hair normally isn’t dry and is actually oily, but during the winter it has a tendency to be super dry at the ends which I absolutely hate.  I’ve read a bunch of reviews online and so far everyone is loving it so  I’m so excited to try out their amazing new line and I’ll write a review once I’ve tried it out for a couple of weeks.

For those of you who haven’t heard of the Beautycon BFF Box dont’ worry, I just recently discovered it. This is not a sponsored post, I personally signed up just to try it out and see if it was worth mentioning on my blog. I’ve been gifted a ton of these monthly subscription boxes and the majority are great, but this one is at the top of list.  This winter box was curated by Bethany Mota and there are items that are a little young but the majority of the items I loved!

Covergirl Voxbox

I received this amazing COVERGIRL Voxbox from Influenster which included their new Plumpify Mascara by blastPRO and their new Colorlicious Oh Sugar lip balm. I’m always trying out new mascaras and a lot of these that say they are great for volume and lift, I’m always skeptical about.  When I pulled out the wand it looked interesting and it’s a mix of conical bristles and fins that are meant to grip, lift, load and comb lashes for 50 times more volume. I surprisingly loved the mascara and I really do think the unique wand head is what gave me the extra volume and lift that I love in a good mascara.  The next product I received was the Colorlicious Oh Sugar in Sprinkle. The Colorlicious Oh Sugar line is COVERGIRL’s new line of lip balms which are made of ultra rich ingredients like grapeseed oil, avocado butter and Vitamins C & E. I was a little afraid my color was going to be too pigmented but it’s actually a great lip balm with just the right amount of tint to it.  This color isn’t the best shade on me personally but if you are more fair I feel like this color would pop perfectly for lighter skin tones.

Eos Stocking Stuffers

EOS Stocking Stuffers

Lip Balm Pack: Eos / Hand Lotion Variety Pack: Eos

With Christmas right around the corner I feel like I’ve been shopping for weeks and still picking up last-minute gifts that I keep forgetting.  One thing that I love shopping for are stocking stuffers! Wether you’re in charge of stockings on Christmas morning or making fun stockings to give away as gifts to your friends, you want to make sure those stockings are full of fun and useful items. This year while I was shopping I came across the perfect lip balm and hand lotion variety packs and was so excited because I immediately knew that these Eos stocking stuffers were going to be a hit. I bought the variety packs because I was filling multiple stockings and this allowed me to mix and match the flavors and scents. You can buy the individual Eos lip balms and Eos lotions if you’re only stuffing one stocking, but personally these variety packs are an amazing deal! I picked up both of my variety packs up at Costco, but for those of you who don’t have a Costco membership I’ve linked the same packs that you can get online from Amazon.

The Eos hand lotion variety pack includes three different amazing scents: Cucumber, Berry Fresh and Fresh Flowers. I love these lotions because not only is the packaging adorable, but it’s the perfect size to slip into your purse whether it’s a large tote or small clutch. The Eos lip balm pack comes with Passion Fruit, Blueberry Acai, Strawberry Sorbet, Sumer Fruit, and Sweet Mint. Although the shape of these lip balms is a little different and hard to throw in your back pocket, I personally love them because they’re easier to find in my large tote and they last forever.
