What's In My Bag?
Before the monsoons dawn upon us and my favorite season, the sunshine happy summer bids adieu, I thought of doing a fun post. This one is all about the things that I can't do without when I am out in the office or heading to a meeting or an interview. Here's a sneak peek into things that you will always find in my bag, apart from the usual box of mints, pen drives, iPod, earphones and more.
Being a journalist and fashion blogger, making notes, writing quotes in between an event and jotting down ideas is an everyday affair. Be it planning the number of interviews lined up for the coming week or making sure that my daily schedule is in place, I can't do without my Quirk Box organizer. And what's a journo's bag without some good stationary? You will always find colorful pens in my bag and on my office desk as well. The coin pouch from Forever 21 in pink also doubles up as a handy bill collector.
I am also loving the quirky collection from India Circus by Krsna Mehta. Being an absolute Apple geek, I can never leave my house without the iPad, iPod and of course, my iPhone. The beautiful iPad sleeves and sturdy phone cases from India Circus makes for a must buy. They are a far cry from the typical stuff that you get in the market. Being the film buff that I am, there couldn't have been anything more awesome than the vintage Eros cinema print on my phone case. The variety of prints available on the website can instantly spruce up your gadget. It's pretty affordable too. Oh! And they recently launched a new range for Samsung users as well.

Summer is incomplete without a good sunscreen and I swear by Banana Boat sport for my body and Clinique SPF 50 (not in picture) for my face. Though I can't carry my Clinique Happy perfume (it's a super big bottle, too heavy), I am currently using and loving the Zara woman oriental perfume. The mini pet floral hand cream smells absolutely divine (and is keeping me happy till I buy another tube of my favorite, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream). All those who know me will tell you that I can't live without my lip balm. You will always find 2 - 3 lip balms or chap-sticks in my bag. I am currently using Kiehl's cranberry lip balm, MAC tinted lip conditioner and the NIVEA medicated lip repair. A small mirror and set of floral make up brushes from Forever 21 also find some space in the bag. Right now, I am also loving the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick. The staying power is great and I love the color.
