it’s kind of a mishmash of everything tossed in there, but i tell you, it’s a step in the right direction as far as getting organized. i’m using my grandfather’s marble yearn in which to hold my products, i’m sure you guys already know this by now, but whenever you get the chance to display your treasured pieces, please do so, you only get one life! i also like to use stemless wine tumblers to hold my lip glosses and such.

here’s what i am currently hauling around. i just got this vintage leather cross-body bag at my favorite antique shop in the westmoreland district of portland and so far i love the way it handles. sometimes it takes testing out a bag before you know if it’s worthy or not, no? and because i’m making an effort to be diligent in changing up my purses, i thought that these posts would be a good thing to do. check out my last bag post here.

3. buffalo exchange sunnies
4. hair band + mini hair clip
5. bare essentials makeup brush
