My Top 5 Handbag Essentials.

My Bag Essentials

No matter which bag I'm using at the moment, there are a few things that I definitely need before I leave the house.

That clear bottle with the purple top is the perfume I currently have in my bag. It's a cocktail of a bunch of different scents, so I really don't have a name for it. All I know is that a fragrance is absolutely essential if I'm leaving the house.

Lip Balm
This changes throughout the months. Right now I'm using a Nivea one that's pretty darn good, and it's even better cause it fits so nicely in my small bag. Chapped lips is not cute. At all.

This seems obvious. There's usually at least one person home at all times in my house, but just in case, I always have my own keys.

If you think lady parts leaking blood is too much for you, ignore this portion of the post. This is just one of the (what seems like) millions of tampons I have in my bag. For me, for my friend, for a stranger, whatever. I am prepared for my lady time.

Hands down one of my most important items in my bag. I don't care how small my bag is, I find a way to fit a travel sized deodorant in there. I just cannot walk around with the fear that I might smell bad - never that.

What's the most important thing in your handbag?

Laquer Love: OPI Eurso Euro.

OPI Eurso Euro

I've been wanting a royal/cobalt blue polish for a very long time. I've found it in OPI's Eurso Euro. It's a simple creme polish with no glitter or iridescence and I love that. It's beautiful and I really need to wear it more often. I'm even matching my fingernails with my toenails with this color, that's how much love I have for it. I'm so glad I found this, and even with all my polish switch-ups, I know this will be a repeat offender on my nails.

(Serious) Hello Hello, I Love You: Lush Lord Of Misrule.

Lush Lord Of Misrule

I've said it in a previous post, but I will say it again: I freakin love Lush's Lord Of Misrule. I just wanted to let you guys know how serious my obsession with this stuff is. All these bottles, all unopened. I think I'm good until they bring it back in stock for the holidays.

What skincare products do you have tons of backups of?

Remembering The Canadian Who Couldn't Dance.

I've opened up on this blog about some of my mental issues and things before. One thing that is close to my heart is addiction, and the people suffering from it.

Today it's been 4 years since one of my favorite people, Cory Monteith, passed away from a drug overdose. I was a serious fangirl for Cory. I loved Glee, and I was (and still am) just giddy for the man. I was devastated when I found out about his passing.

One might ask "Why would you care so much about a person you've never met and doesn't even know who you are?". Well, he's a person. A human - why wouldn't one care about the health and well being about another decent human being? Also, Cory was not the only person suffering with this dreadful disease. There have been many we've lost because of addiction. There are many who are still battling it as we speak. For those who are no longer with us, I miss you and I wish you would have won your battle. For those still here and struggling, keep fighting and know that you can get through it. You can do anything.
