WHAT'S IN MY KATE SPADE HANDBAG? + MAKEUP BAG | Tara Berries


I was completely surprised this past Christmas 2015 because my best friend gave me this beautiful Kate Spade tote. I am not one to ever ask for anything Kate Spade but out of the blue my best friend surprised me with a Kate Spade handbag and I couldn't have been happier. The idea of someone just thinking that I deserved something special was extremely nice and out of the blue. 

I don't like to keep a handbag brimming with items I don't use so what I keep in my tote is a 2016 planner that I bought at Chapters, a Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer (can you tell I work with little children?), my Kate Spade clutch which holds money and my bank cards, and a small make-up bag. 

I use my planner for just about everything. As a supply teacher I like to keep track of where I worked and for how long (I record whether it was a half day, 2/3rds day, or a whole day). I also keep track of when I write a blog post, when my bill payments are due, appointments, and any birthdays or celebrations happening. 

My Kate Spade Clutch is great because when I don't want to take a big tote out with me and friends for the night I just take out my clutch, add a lip gloss to it and I am good to go. I bought the clutch at the Niagara Falls outlet last year and I love the Tiffany blue colour it has.



Finally, I also carry a makeup bag. The reason I carry my make-up in a separate bag is because it is easier to know that my makeup is all in one place and it doesn't get the inside of my tote bag dirty. I typically carry a foundation and the one I am currently carrying is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15. I then carry a makeup brush, lipstick, lip gloss, cover up, a mini mascara, and a nail file. 

What type of handbag are you currently using and what are your essentials that you keep inside your bag? Let me know in the comments!

  3. What a thoughtful gift from your friend. You've just inspired me to go through my own bag and get rid of some junk that I don't need/use.
