The contents of my bag is always changing with the seasons. Since summer has officially arrived, I thought I’d share whats been hanging out in my bag recently and what I’ve been carrying now that the sun & warm weather have arrived!
Currently carrying for everyday errands: Sseko foldover cross body bag
sunscreen, chapstick, sunglasses, extra shopping bag, wallet, keys, bag of almonds to munch on
Carrying for a day out and about (working at Starbucks): Black Sseko Bucket tote
sunscreen, sunglasses, laptop, extra cords in the pink & gold moon clutch, planner, market tote for shopping, LipSense Lip Color & Gloss (this stuff is the bomb!)
Trip to the pool/lake/beach/your preferred body of water: Sseko Market Tote
beach towel, sunscreen, chapstick, hat, sunglasses, lightweight layer, head phones, book, iPhone loaded up with podcasts and my favorite new playlist, and a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated
(PS grab a copy of Lara Casey’s Cultivate, HERE, seriously reading this for a 2nd time in 2 months it’s life changing)
OK, did you notice I have sunscreen listed on each one? Did you know for sunscreen to be effective you need to apply every 2 hours at least? I put on face lotion with SPF each morning & because I don’t wear foundation or heavy make up daily I reapply sunscreen at least 3 times a day, especially on my face & hands.
Adding a sunscreen regime could prevent serious skin cancers. Look for sunscreens with 3% or more of avobenzone & mineral sunscreens will include zinc oxide or titanium oxide. And remember anything over SPF 50 is frivolous, focus on ingredients and reapplying often no matter the SPF!
What are your must have’s in your summer bags?
