The leaves are changing, the temperature has dropped and I’m doing my happy dance now that it’s acceptable to wear boots, jackets and scarves! Fall is such a beautiful time here, you’re not miserable from the heat anymore and most of the bugs have disappeared so you aren’t getting attacked the instant you step outside, yay!
I had so much fun sharing my summer edition of “what’s in my bag” that I had to continue with a Fall version. This season I changed up my bag and a few essentials. Since the weather is now cooling off, I get to share a few things specific to this time of year I think many of you will enjoy.
Everything mentioned is 100% vegan and cruelty-free! I only feature brands that share my outlook on an eco-friendly lifestyle as well as offer the best quality possible – I will never mention anything I don’t fully support. Promise.
Canopy Verde Heights Shoulder Bag
Absolutely gorgeous designer handbag with wooden detailing. 100% vegan, cruelty-free materials with a pop of bright orange fabric lining. I swoon for this bag! It’s everything I could have dreamed of. Classic earth tones that pair perfectly with most anything and the bright pop of color transitions you from the Summer to Fall effortlessly. If I’m not rocking an all black bag, this is my official go to!
Canopy Verde Phone Wristlet
Easy to grab and go, this functions as a case for my cell phone, ID, credit card/money and coupons. There’s also room for lip balm, a compact, spare change and/or a pack of gum. You can easily use this as a purse for quick errands, going to the gym or the minimalist that doesn’t need a whole bag.
Meow Meow Tweet Relief Balm
This balm is perfect for dry/cracked skin and chapped lips. I love using this as a universal product, perfect for hydrating sore lips, itchy skin and/or even bug bites. Having an all-in-one product like this really comes in handy!
Too Faced Mascara & Bronzer
Thanks to the lovely Tashina of Logical Harmony – I was introduced to these products and now I’m obsessed!
You might be wondering why I would have a bronzer in the Fall but that’s the beauty of this specific one. It’s completely matte, very light (but buildable) and it straight up smells like chocolate! Plus, the compact is cute and having a great mirror is always helpful.
This “Better Than Sex” mascara is literally life changing. I’m blessed with long lashes, but they grow out very straight. The first time I curled my lashes and applied one coat of this – omg! My eyes looked twice as big and the curl actually held for most of the day! I’m not sure is it’s the formula or the wand, but this combo is incredible and I’m hooked. My eyes popped even more than usual, I love it! Thanks Tashina!
Well Scent Essential Oil
Now that the seasons are changing I swapped out my calming essential oil for an immune boosting blend. Protect from Well Scent is fantastic at preventing colds and keeping you well, protected.
After going vegan I haven’t been sick once (knocks on wood), coming from a life of getting sick every other month. Having a holistic preventative helps keep me assured I’m covering my bases and staying safe while out in public – no colds for me!
I can’t recommend Well Scent’s products enough, especially their entire dental line. You can check out the full review I wrote on it, here.
I still swear by my Diva cup. I promise I’ll do a separate post for that since so many of you were curious after I mentioned it in my pervious bag-spill.
Keeping a snack close by is an essential. I never know if I’ll get hungry when I’m out, so knowing I have something I can eat is great.
Right now I’m loving the new protein bars from Aloha – the peanut butter chocolate chip ones rock! And with 18 grams of protein, these are amazing for being out and about. If I don’t have anything available to me I reach for this and I’m fine for at least a couple of hours.
Having a pair of huge sunglasses is an essential for me. I have really sensitive eyes, so I buy the absolute largest lenses available. I believe these are from Target, anything cheap works for me!
This is a new item I’m testing out – so far so good. Plus, the packaging is super cute! This flavor is mojito mint.
Now that the weather is cooling off I can wear scarves! My favorite! I love to keep one in or looped around my purse. This particular one is from Old Navy a few years ago, I really dig this color for Fall.
I would love to hear from you! What do you keep in your bag? Have any brand/product recommendations for me?! Let me know in the comments down below!0
