What's in my bag?!

Hey guys!
First of all, I want to apologize for the lack of posts last week. I have been so stressed with school work that I didn't have time to write last week's posts. I am almost on break, so I will be working on pre-writing posts so this doesn't happen again!
I haven't done a What's in my bag post in a few months, so I thought I would share what I've been carying around with you :)
I am using the Longchamp Large Le Pilage tote in gunmetal. I love this bag because it's very roomy, but is practical at the same time. I very rarely use bags that don't have a shoulder strap because I find them unpractical. In my day to day life, I need to use both my hands so bags without shoulder straps don't work. This bag is made of nylon so it is very weather resistant. I love using this in the winter because if it starts snowing or raining I don't have to worry about ruining leather.
The first thing I always have in my bag is my wallet of course! I've been using one from target that I got for $15 and I absolutely love it! Coincidentally, it matches my bag perfectly. If I can find the wallet on target.com I'll link it here, but if I can't, go check out insta (@shadowandgloss_) and I'll post a picture there!
Next, I have my emergency kit. I always carry this around because you never know when you will have an emergency!, and I always need to have my medicine on me. If you want to see a detailed post of what's in my emergency kit, click here. 
The next thing I always have is 5 million lip products. Not actually 5 million, but a lot. Currently, I have the smith's menthol and eucalyptus balm, a NYX butter gloss in tiramisu, bite beauty Rambutan gloss, NYX mega shine gloss in natural and Gerard cosmetics serenity. Can you tell I have a thing for glosses?
In a small pouch I keep some powder for touch-ups (I'm currently using the Maybelline one), and a target kabuki brush to apply the powder. I also always have a mini Mac fix+ with me because this stuff is incredible!
Since it's winter, I keep the Kiehl's ultimate strength hand salve (just a hand cream) with me. I love this because it is super moisturizing, but doesn't feel greasy on your hands which makes it perfect for on the go.
Next, I have a small notebook. I love writing down all my ideas to make sure I don't forget anything!
I also keep my erin condren planner with me. This helps me keep track of my schedule for the day and it helps ensure everything gets done :)
That's all I keep in my bag! I don't think its too much, but if it's too much for you I would recommend cutting down on the lip products lol.
I hope you this helped you in some way or another :)!
Let me know what you carry in your bag!

XOXO,
Shadow
