Big welcome to my new Friday feature – my wonderful friend Stephanie who helped run the PMP operation across the pond! Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday, Charlie xx
Fashion, style, easy (and most of the time healthy) recipes, everyday products, and so much more!! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Stephanie and I will be blogging once a week on Charlie’s Pocket Money Polishes blog about the latest and greatest. I thought a fun way to get to know me is to do a “What’s In My Bag” Article! So here it goes!
First off, I carry around A LOT of stuff. I throw everything in my bag and personally I think your bag represents who you are. My bag will tell you I am extremely organized, everything has its own place and that I truly enjoy fashion. Currently, my bag collection has over 100 designer bags! And YES, I use every one of them. I know which bag it is by knowing its place on my “bag bookshelf” and the dust cover. I take my handbags extremely seriously and I am always on the lookout for new unique designer bag.
As of right now I am currently using my Louis Vuitton “Delightful Monogram PM” handbag. This handbag is a classic blend of glamour and practicality. Supple yet durable. The monogram canvas is completed by fine golden brass details and a spacious interior. I do wish I have gotten the bigger Delightful handbag but mine does the job!
The first thing that will pop out at you when you look in my bag is my big pink planner. Since summer is right around the corner and I have been on a mission to lose some weight (aren’t we all??) I’ve started tracking everything I eat. I weigh my food and write down exactly what I eat for each meal on the day I had it. It is a great tool and really has helped me to lose (DRUM ROLL PLEASE) 20 POUNDS! If I am having a bad week and did not lose anything, I can go back and see what I ate and vice versa if I am having a good week. In addition to writing down everything I eat, it does help me with scheduling.
Next, is my amazing bag organizer! That thing holds everything!!!! It holds all the essential a girl needs in her purse! My essentials are: sunglasses cleaner, eye drops (thank you Lasik), Band-Aids, hand sanitizer, Pepto, Tylenol, various lip gloss and Chap Sticks, Tide-to-go, Glister breath spray, gum, Colgate Wisps, and breath mints. A girl could never have enough fresh breath supplies! You never know when you are going to lean in and go for that big passionate kiss! Or get pulled into an emergency meeting. Of course I carry some sort of body spray/perfume; my top choice for the moment is Sexy Little Things Noir by Victoria Secrets. It is safe to say I use almost all of these products on a daily basis. Need a fantastic lipgloss? Try Mary Kay Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss, color: Pink Sateen. It is a great color on any skin tone, its moistures too. I think it is better than Chap Stick.
On to the next! My sunglasses. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these sunglasses. I had Lasik surgery done about 2 years ago and my eyes are very sensitive to light. These David Yurman sunglasses have extremely dark polarized lenses. I called these my “driving glasses”. I never leave the house without them. They are one of my “go-to” pairs of glasses. If you have sensitive eyes, splurge and get yourself a pair of these! So worth it. If you do get yourself a pair, do not go nuts and spend $400 in the store or online. You can easily find David Yurman at the outlets and pay half the price!
Lastly, is my wallet. And I know, I know, I know I’m technically breaking a cardinal rule. My wallet does not match my purse but you know what? I really don’t feel like spending $750 on a big Louis Vuitton wallet… I’d rather buy another bag! My wallet is big, holds everything and I have been using it for years. I have multiple wallets at home but I always go back to this one. It is a Turn Lock Wallet by Vera Bradley. My wallet is so old my pattern doesn’t exist anymore! The day my wallet is no longer with me will be a very sad day. It has 14 credit card holders and 5 pouches! It holds all of my credit cards, business cards, gift cards, and a small daily planner and of course with plenty of room to hold my cash. I can even fit my phone and my car key if I need to grab and go. Best $49.00 I have ever spent…. And yes you read that right ITS ONLY $49!
Now I do not want to give anyone the wrong impression about me, I am very frugal with my money. Yes, I do like to have nice things, who doesn’t, but when I invest into something, I need to make sure the product is going to last with me and my lifestyle (I’m a traveler). I’ve had my LV bag for three years now and I use it all the time in the spring and summer time. I’ve had this wallet for three years too and it might be a little dirty but its mine, it holds everything important to me and gets the job done. This blog will have a whole mix of different designers from Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi to getting things at Forever 21, H&M and maybe even The Salvation Army. (Side note: a friend of mine just bought a brand new, tags still on Brooks Brother button down for $10 at The Salvation Army.)
In summary, I am a Jersey Girl who loves fashion, cooking, traveling, nails, and every girly thing there is. I am super excited to be a part of the Pocket Money Polishes family again and I hope you come back next week to see what I have to blog about.
