What's In My Bag - Kate Spade Jessmin

Yes, you are reading this right, I am posting to my poor neglected blog!  Today I am sharing a “what’s in my bag?” post with you as part of The Beauty Spotlight Team.  Each week the ladies from the BST are sharing the nitty gritty of the insides of their bags with you!  If you love these kinds of posts, make sure to check out these previous posts: 
What's In My Bag Kate Spade

Back to my bag!  I am currently carrying around my Kate Spade Aurelia Court Jessmin.  I wanted something lightweight and fun for Spring, so when this bag was returned BNWT at my store I snatched it up right away!  I knew it was fate, because I already owned Literary Pencil Pouch that matched perfectly!

What's In My Kate Spade Jessmin

In my bag I always have:  my Kate Spade pencil pouch (pens, phone charger, lipgloss, etc), my Kate Spade Wellesley (more on that below!), my wallet and sunglasses (I just switched back to these).  My iPhone 6 Plus fits perfectly in the inside phone pockets!

Inside my Kate Spade Wellesley

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am really into planners lately!  Back in February I really fell out of love with blogging.  It felt like a full time job on top of my full time job!  My husband and I were not spending as much time together as I would have liked, because I was always in my room swatching, editing, writing, or trying to find more ways to promote and monetize this blog.  My depression went from bad to worse.  One day I decided to give myself a one month break and walk away. 

My Makeup Dashboard

Two things happened after I stopped blogging – I got bronchitis and I discovered the planner community.  To be honest, I am not sure which happened first!  My bronchitis was actually very bad and I have missed several days of work over the past two months.  When I did go to work, I didn’t wear makeup and I certainly didn’t do my nails.  Every time I think I am getting better, it knocks me on my ass again!  So I have had a lot of time to order stickers and make pretty dashboards for my planner.

My Planner Family

I am still conflicted on coming back to blogging.  If I do, it’s only going to be for fun.  I don’t want to worry about sponsored posts, page views, or blogging networks.  I am going to leave this blog up, and I am going to leave my Google Adsense on it, because TBH I need to pay off all the planners I have bought!

Planners and Polish

Last week I gave myself a manicure for the first time since February.  I even posted two NOTD’s on Instagram.  Does that mean I am back to blogging?  I am still undecided.  But atleast I feel good enough to care about what I look like again!

I am not sure how many of you are interested in the planner community.  If you have questions or want details about what I have shared today, leave them in the comments.  I may write another post.  I may just respond to your questions.  We’ll see.
