What's In My Bag?
This week we met up with Social Media assistant Renee Savino, a girl who’s always on the go. Between interning with Rebecca Minkoff in Manhattan and keeping her followers updated on Instagram, Renee makes sure her bag is stocked with all of the essentials for her #girlboss lifestyle. Keep reading to find out what Renee keeps in her bag!
R: The bag that I carry on me most of the time is this amazing backpack from Rebecca Minkoff. It’s the perfect bag because it has the space and functionality of a school backpack, but a neutral suede fabric and tassel zippers that make it really chic and sophisticated.
The first thing I always have in my bag is obviously my iPhone. I pretty much have it with me at all times because I’m always keeping up with my friends, taking pictures, and checking social media.
Something I recently bought and love to keep in my bag is my S’well water bottle. It keeps my water ice cold all day long and is also so great for keeping coffee or tea hot for hours. They have a ton of different prints that are really fun and chic. The S’well bottle is a definite must have.
I always keep my planner and a small notebook in my bag. I’m a pretty busy girl and I like to stay on track and keep very organized. I like keeping them in my bag to jot down notes or important dates whenever they pop into my head. I also keep a few pens and pencils in my bag because never know when you’ll need to jot something down.
I also keep my wallet in my bag at all times. It’s not too bulky and I like a subtle pop of color in the winter so this blush pink Michael Kors wallet is perfect for me.
I keep a small makeup bag with me if I ever need a little touch up throughout the day. I don’t like anything too big or bulky in my bag, so I just have small pouch to fit the essentials. Right now I have a Mac concealer and blush, Nars powder bronzer, a travel Narciso Rodriguez perfume, a couple cosmetic brushes, a nail file, and a Michael Kors double ended perfume roller/ lip gloss. This is definitely my holy grail product. You can’t go wrong with a 2 in 1.
I like keeping a pair of sunglasses in my bag too. Even in the winter I’ll throw on a pair of glasses when I’m walking in between classes or when I’m driving. Sunglasses can easily add a little something extra to an outfit so it doesn’t hurt to keep a pair in your bag. Mine are from Illesteva and they go with everything!
I have my car keys in my bag most of the time when I’m out. I like keeping my keys on an easy to find key chain so I don’t have to dig through my bag to find them.
My hands tend to get a little dry in the winter so I always make sure I keep hand cream with me. I love this travel bottle that I got in a Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf perfume set. It smells amazing and keeps my hands nice and smooth.
Lastly, I keep a spare pair of headphones in my bag because there’s nothing worse than getting to the library and realizing you left your headphones at home.
