Post Note (What’s In My Bag)

Post Note (What’s In My Bag)

I switched from a tote to a cross shoulder from DSW - I don’t need a lot to get the day going and to be productive; even when I take pictures on location, I‘ll just carry my tripod by itself along with what’s in my little Madden Girl bag:

Mophie

I have a portable charger. It’s good because I’m available and working and active on social media. Throughout the day, I take pictures with my phone, I write in my notes, always on maps and my battery is like “wow wtf.” Even when I don’t post on Instagram, I’m on Twitter or Snapchat, doing s o m e t h i n g with my phone. I also bring my ear buds just incase I have to choke someone out.

Fingernail clippers

I’m a nail care junkie - I don’t leave the house without my long term fingernail clippers (of 5+ years) and, of course, cuticle oil. I’ve actually used these clippers to remove itchy tags from my clothes or random odd things in instances where I may have needed scissors on the go

Aaquaphor advance therapy

This is multipurpose. I use it everywhere - it’s a thick, waxy moisturizing ointment, essentially for tattoo care. I started using it on my face after getting tatted “△“ on my nape and it healed all scars, marks and unnecessary flaws. It makes the skin look and feel (be mindful) like a glazed buttery doughnut. Haha! It absorbs though. I use it on my lips and hands regularly. Mine is the travel size that comes in a tube!

Lipgloss

Food, water, underground, above ground, walking, running, skipping, dodging, breathing, adjusting, talking, smiling, touching. All of this is wearing the skin down and that includes the face and lips so, I lipgloss it. Sometimes I use lipgloss as a natural highlighter on my cheeks.

Compact mirror

It’s mandatory. I use to go everywhere without a mirror because I thought my Snapchat camera would have my back if anything happened to my face. Like the random fuzz-on-the-cheek situation or the good ol’ eyelash in the f*cking eye. Then one night, I’m meeting up with Kim at a concert in Brooklyn and something flew straight into my corneal so, I officially understood the term tunnel vision and made the necessary changes in items to bring with me everywhere I go. Get a compact mirror.

Fragranced oil / perfume

Since I use a few different oils, I haven’t needed to reapply any fragrances or worry about body odor. I literally smell amazing, yeah, even when I sweat. But, just in case I am in need of a refresher, I bring it. I also just love the scent - I’m asked all the time what I’m wearing and I’m prepared to whip it out.. along with my metro card as I am a New York Girl with places~to~be.
