Photo & caption update LVIII

Hello, hellooooo! I have some kind of exciting news *....drum roll...* I finally got a new job!!!! I've been job hunting over the last four months and after attending multiple interviews I've managed to land a job as a beauty advisor/2IC of a Kiehl's counter based in Myer. I haven't started the job yet because I've still got a lot of orientation and training to do but I'll definitely keep you guys in the loop. I'm so excited because their company looks after their employees so well and they really do seem like a tight knit family :')

What's in my bag

Hello hello! Sorry for the delay on this long requested tag. I've been asked on my by a few anons to do some more Youtube tag style blog posts so if you guys have anymore suggestions then do feel free to send them to me. I've been putting this post off for a little while purely because I don't actually keep much in my bag but we'll see how this goes. 

To start off with, the bag which I carry 90% of the time I leave the house is my pride and joy, the Prada Vitello Grain Satchel. I purchased it some time late last year for about $1.4k-1.5k off Reebonz. It was definitely a huge investment but there is not a single ounce of regret in my body. If I had to critique one thing about the bag is that it doesn't have a lot of structure which I was pretty bummed out about when it first arrived.

I've worn this bag to death and put way too much in it at a time when I went to uni or used it as an overnight bag so some of the stitching has come apart :( 

This is how it usually looks if I've only got all my usual essentials in there *slouches*.

I told you, really boring. 

The only makeup I usually carry around in my bag is the lipstick that I put on in the morning when I do my makeup for the day. I carry a Carmex balm tube with me everywhere because my lips are super chapped and troublesome as well. The two lipsticks I happened to have in my bag while doing this post are below!

Coral by Lipstick Queen. 

Velvet Teddy by MAC.

I always carry a travel sized fragrance with me as well. Before Atlas Mountain from The Body Shop (sweet rose fragrance), I carried around the mini Tocca Florence travel spray which was amaaaazing. When I finish this I want to get the deodorant from Aesop! 

Because I can't drive.

My Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Saffiano Chain Wallet. Click here if you'd like to see an unboxing I did of this wallet. 

 Doughnut time loyalty card, free stuff from Campos and New Shanghai. 

Photo booth strips. One from 2012 at my high school formal with Adrii and one from last year's QUT engineering ball with Caroline.

A polaroid with Alice we took back in 2009/2010.

A bunch of sticker photos. The ones at the bottom are from Korea! 

And more....

A bunch of band aids. I keep them in my wallet just in case but the only time anybody needs them is when Alice has a blister from breaking in a pair of new shoes HAHAHA. 

Found some Korean makeup in my wallet which I was too lazy to take out. 

VIP magic passes.

A bunch of loyalty and point cards.

Just because this post is a little bit boring I'll include my parcels that arrived today. I finally ordered Cashmere from Lime Crime - and yes, I am aware of all the controversy surrounding their website and brand.

Top Gun sunglasses from Quay.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and that you all had a fantastic start to your week! All the best with high school, uni and everything else which might come your way :) S.
