What's in My Bag? 👜

As Rose in Titanic once said, A woman's heartor shall I say bagis an ocean full of secrets. 

Just kidding. 

But really, isn't it odd how a lot of people are so interested in the concept of someone revealing the contents hidden within their bag? Though I would be lying if I said I wasn't part of that curious bunch.

Heck, I've even lost track of the number of YouTube videos I've watched of people showing what's in their bag...but hey, who's counting? 😉

In honor of all you Curious Georges, and the fact that it's Tellin' Thursday in my book, I thoughwhy not flip the switch and spill the beans on what I usually carry around.

BAG: RAFURA Cowhide Leather Casual Drawstring Medium Shoulder Bag, $58 on


1. Cell phone - Samsung Galaxy S5, yes, I know it's time for an upgrade

2. Keys - keys to Chewy aka my whip, keys to my abode, keys for my bike chain, a key that looks like a key but is really for self defense (check it out here), and my boyfriend in mini lion form, which he got me a really long time ago at a mall kiosk (similar ones here)

3. External battery pack - Portable Charger RAVPower 22000mAh, highly recommend this charger as it has saved my phone's battery life multiple timesespecially when pokehunting 😂

4. Makeup - Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Cannes, Clarins' Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Honey, and e.l.f. Retractable Kabuki Brush

5. Las Vegas mirror - sweet souvenir given to me from my boyfriend's mom

6. Reusable tote bag - aka Bilbo Baggins (let's see if you can spot him), from Bath & Body Works   

7. Buc-ee's zippered pouch - holds all my wired friends (earphones, phone charger, USB)

8. Special pens! - one pen was given to me from my best friend as part of my college graduation gift (has my initials inscribed and comes with a little blinged out charm), the others are a multi-colored Rilakkuma pen and a pen from Batangas given to me from my boyfriend

9. Eyedrops - this is a must for those of us with dry eyes 👀

10. Asian rollerball that smells like Tiger Balm - given to me from my mom, extremely handy to smell whenever I feel naseous

11. Arsenal of bandages - in case of any ouchies

12. Tools to battle food stuck in teeth - DenTek Slim Brush pack and floss

13. Hand sanitizer - this is a must for the germaphobes (like me), the fuzzy cute squirrel that holds my hand sanitizer is from Bath & Body Works and lights up!

Other items I also carry with me are lotion (dry, cracked hands are not pleasant) and agua (gotta stay hydrated).

DIY: Multi-Chain Sandals

It's not an uncommon thing to get rid of sandals you never wear anymore. But, I only wore these sandals once :-/...

ONCE! (-_-) I can't put my finger on why I've only worn them once, but maybe it has to deal with me not being satisfied with the look of them anymore. So, instead of getting rid of them, I decided to revamp their look to fit my fashion needs. And this is how they turned out...


 (Don't mind my toes LOL)

VOILA! A new pair of sandals that I absolutely la-la-love! ☺ I added gold chains to them because I wanted a dressier sandal versus a casual one since I already have a bunch. I've already gotten plenty of compliments on them too hehe (^_^). Everything you need to know on how to make a pair is down below! 

What You'll Need!
-Sandals (purchased from Charlotte Russe a year ago)
-Chains (purchased from Walmart for ~$3-4)
-Hot glue (got a new one as a gift from my boyfriend☺♥)

Check out how to make it down belooow!

Love ♥
