What’s In My Bag? | Vintage LV Mini Looping Bag

I love to read “What’s In My Bag” posts. Maybe I am nosy, but I find it so interesting to see what other people carry around in their bags. Today I am showing you what is in mine!

I am currently using my VINTAGE Louis Vuitton Mini Looping Bag in the monogram canvas. This bag was given to me by my husband about 12 years ago for our anniversary. It was actually my second LV bag that he got me, the first being the Speedy 25 in the Damier Azur canvas. I have a What’s In My Speedy post if you want to check it out HERE.

So, I looked online, and any bag over 10 years old is considered vintage. So some of my bags are vintage now because I got a lot of them in my 20’s! I’m old.

Anyway, back to the bag. This is one of my favorite designer bags that I own. It is the perfect size, and I love how it just has the one strap. This bag was discontinued, but you may be able to find it pre-owned.

So here’s what I keep in it!

LV Mon Monogram Card Case – I got this for my birthday last year, and it took 3 months to get to me! They make these to order, and I was so happy with how it came out. I keep all of my cards in here, and it’s the perfect size.

Gucci Key Holder – I have this to hold my keys so that they don’t scratch the inside of the bag, and I love the pink interior. I don’t see this on the website anymore, so I linked what they have.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme in Pink Punch – review on this amazing gloss coming up on FRIDAY!!!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose – the OG.

Invisibobble Hair Ties – having two girls with long hair, they always need a hair tie!

Replica Flower Market Fragrance – my current fave floral scent!

My favorite black aviator sunglasses (similar ones here)

Honest Hand Sanitizer Spray – I love this stuff, I have the lavender scent.

One Protein Bar in Peanut Butter Pie (in case I get hangry) – these are SO GOOD. I buy them by the case.

So, that is it, that’s everything! I don’t like to carry around a lot; just what I need.

Top 5 | Pink Essie Colors

Hello! I LOVE the color pink. It is so girly and pretty, and it’s my favorite color to wear on my nails and toes. I thought it would be fun to share my all time favorite pink nail colors. Here they are!

I’ll start with the lightest shade, Essie Gel Couture in Matter of Fiction.

This is the second bottle I have purchased of this color, and it is stunning. If you don’t like stark white nails, this is a super pale baby pink cream color that almost looks white. So pretty!

The next color is also a Gel Couture, called PR Stunt.

This is my favorite Essie pink that I own. This is a lavender pink cream color. Looking at the bottle, it looks like there is a metallic sheen, but it doesn’t show on the nails. I love this color, especially for my toes in the summertime!

Next is a color I wear a TON, Essie Touch of Sugar.

This is a very light metallic rose gold color. It is surprisingly not sheer and is fully opaque with 2 coats. This color would look so good with a tan for the summer!

Next is another Gel Couture (I love the line) and it is called Stitch By Stitch.

This is a deeper rosy pink cream color, a little bit of a nude; more muted pink. This color goes on like a dream and goes with any outfit!

Lastly, my newest polish, but already makes the cut. Essie One Way For One.

This is a hot pink color with a frosty gold sheen. This color is gorgeous. It reminds me of Barbie and I love it!

EAT | Lunch For One – Tortilla Pizza

So, being a stay at home mom with kids in school (they abandoned me), I often find myself eating lunch alone. I’m not going to make a big meal just for me, so I’m always looking for quick ideas. On the rare occasion that I get tired of eating a sandwich (I’m the sandwich queen), I love to make myself a little personal pizza. These little thin and crispy pizzas are under 200 calories, and are SO GOOD. The key is having a good sauce, and I always use Rao’s. It’s the best. Here’s how to make it!

What you need:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Flour tortilla
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Oregano

In a skillet, heat just a teaspoon of olive oil, and crisp up your tortilla. You want to get it really crispy (almost burnt) on both sides.

After it’s really crispy, spread some pizza sauce on it, and make sure you go all the way to the edges, so the tortilla doesn’t burn. Don’t go really heavy on the sauce, or else it won’t be crispy.

Sprinkle on some mozzarella and then top with some oregano.

Bake on a cookie sheet for about 7-8 minutes on 400 degrees.

Voila! A delicious little crispy pizza!

Sometimes I make two. 🙂

DIY Personalized Beaded Bracelets

Hello! I absolutely love personalized jewelry. Anything with a monogram or a name I just have to have!!! Recently, I have spotted a trend of beaded bracelets that you can have personalized with a name. I have seen these on Etsy, Baublebar, even really expensive ones on NET-A-PORTER.

Reading Wrap Up | January

Hello! It’s the end of the month, which means I have three book reviews to share with you! Here’s what I read in the month of January.

The Idea of You by Robinne Lee

This book was a fun beachy type read; it was a lighthearted love story about a divorced mother of a teenager who falls in love with a pop star. She and her daughter go to the bands’ concert and she meets the lead singer and feels an instant connection, but you know, he’s like twenty years old.

Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

I’m pretty sure that everyone and their mom read this last year. It was on so many lists and won a lot of awards, so I had to see what all the fuss was about. This is a coming of age story about a girl that lives alone in a swamp, and also kind of a murder mystery. This book did live up to the hype; it was a really good story, but no really big twist at the end or anything like that. I can see a movie being made after this. It was really good.

The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

I had been waiting to get my hands on this new book for awhile, so I was really excited to read it. This is about an adopted girl who finds out that she has inherited a house from her late biological parents. The story is about the weird things that happened in that house and why she was adopted. This book was just ok for me, there weren’t any really big twists and I kind of lost interest. I don’t know why it was called The Family Upstairs either, and I couldn’t figure that out. I prefer Lisa Jewell’s other novels to this one.

What have you been reading lately?
