Fall Handbag Essentials with U By Kotex


Thank you U By Kotex, Kleenex and Walmart for sponsoring today's post!

It's the first day of fall and California spent the morning pretending it was going to actually have cold weather for once. It's quickly thrown a JK in our faces, but I took advantage and wore my favorite Sevenly sweatshirt as I dashed to Walmart to get the best deal ever...which totally inspired today's post. It does help that my mom's best friend gave me a Kate Spade handbag this past week...Paulina's so proud of me!



Today's the perfect day to switch purses - along with the season! Cleaning out my purse is so therapeutic, and I was able to grab the best essentials at Walmart to stock my purse.



Top of the list?

1. The U By Kotex CleanWear Pads - I know I'm always gabbin' about these things - but seriously, Walmart exclusively offers them with a free Kleenex slim pack, which comes in handy with cold season. These pads have the new 3D Capture Core (duh, I was obsessed with them here) and are super comfortable, yet thin.

Of course, I have an awesome coupon for you. The more times you share, the more money you save when you head over to Walmart to get these U By Kotex CleanWear Pads (or the click tampons and sleek tampons!).



2. Bella's leash! As you can tell, this little girl is never far from her mama. Iman is totally jealous, but it's just because I was able to visit my mom more often when we first got them. She gets so excited whenever she sees me - even if I walked into the bedroom for a minute to change.

She wanted to be a part of the photoshoot

We're trying to get her to be less afraid, so I've been taking her wherever I go. She's been enjoying the car more than when we first got her.

3. My Erin Condren Planner. Yes, I'm still obsessed! It just has everything I need and all of the parts I loved about my high school planner but better.



4. My Be Kind sweatshirt from Sevenly. It's my favorite warm sweatshirt, and perfect for those moments California decides to be foggy.



5. My newest lipstick obsession - Jellybean by Too Faced. Seriously, I wear this every day at work!

It was hard to choose just five, since I'm usually stocked with my other Walmart finds - deoderant, chapstick, pens, etc. I'm a teacher and a server, so I'm always on the go and in need of this stuff!!

Pin this!



What do you have in your bag? Have you gone and gotten your coupon yet?

  6. Love that sweater, how cute! I also have never tried Too Faced lipsticks, but I think I should now if it's your everyday choice!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I've tried a variety of other stuff by Too Faced, but never their lipsticks (um, they changed up their packaging and I love anything that is in capsuled in gold...)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love the carry case, so often I throw tampons n my bag and they ending opening up, getting dirty and destroyed, this would prevent that!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Aww I love everything that is in your bag (and special guests in the photo) haha!!! I love Too Faced, but need to try their lippies!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Aw, Bella in a cone! You had some great essentials in your bag. Tampons are a total secret necessity!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Great essentials! I really love the color of that lipstick. And I feel you on the sweater in Cali. I was at an event this weekend and forgot to bring my duster, got sooo cold.

    That sweater is too cute! Love the kotex line as well, doesn't hurt that the packaging is so darn purty. I'm in the market for a planner because I am always forgetting stuff. Maybe i'll try out the one you're using :)

  22. I loove Too Faced. I'm so makeup illiterate that I didn't even know who they were until I got it. Sevenly is awesome - and they're based down the street from my mom's house!! Be Kind is my favorite sweatshirt to wear around my students!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. haha my bag is only clean because I switched bags! My old purse still has some trash hanging out in it =X

    ReplyDelete
  28. Everything a girl needs right in her bag! Thanks for the tips!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Some things that you just can't leave the house without! Your little pup is so cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I never leave the house without a Revlon balm stain (which I buy at Walmart) and some Listerine pocket packs.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the sweatshirt! And that lip color looks fabulous- I might have to try!

    ReplyDelete
  32. hahaha, she can't help herself!! And the lipstick - seriously is the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. eeee, they so are! I am obsessed with soft sweatshirts right now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you! When I saw the sweatshirt at Sevenly - I knew I had to get it!!

    Funny story - of course I left my purse at home with my kotex's in them for work tonight - and then desperately had to ask my coworkers if they had anything for me! So ironic!

    If you end up wanting to get the Erin Condren, email me - I have a $10 off code you can use :)

  35. The vet believes she is a manchester terrier mix. They have the longer legs (the are the descendants of dobermen). It is crazy how long her legs are! Her brothers look more like manchester terriers than she does: http://www.breederretriever.com/photopost/data/594/medium/manchester_terrier.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aww thank you! I'm obsessed dwith her!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, hand warmers are the best in cold weather (which I never get to enjoy). And thank you!! Doggies that follow you everywhere are the cutest - though I'm quickly learning she is very protective of me

    ReplyDelete
  38. Aww, thank you so much Carly! i'm a bit obsessed

    ReplyDelete
  39. eee thank you! I'm a bit obsessed with her

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you! I am so in love with the color, too! And yes! I mean, we're hot here in Cali, but it occasionally and unexpectedly gets so chilly

    ReplyDelete
  42. haha, isn't she the cutest? She got her cone off today - lucky girl! Seriously - tampons are a definite necessity

    ReplyDelete
  43. OOh, what other Too Faced products are good? I'm going to need to try them out!

    ReplyDelete
  44. yes! Carrying cases are SO necessary - plus it is totally awkward to accidentally pull out an open tampon when you're reaching for your wallet

    ReplyDelete
  45. hahaha, GOOOOLD is seriously a new obsession of mine! What other products are good? This is all I've tried so far...I picked it out after Jess (from Jess Loves This Life) put over 10 lipstick swatches on my hand and arm in Sepohra. I looked like a crazy

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  52. hahaha, sounds like you do need to clean out your bag! I added a ton of things into my bag when I was cleaning yesterday. Aren't the little scraps of papers the worst?

    ReplyDelete

  54. hahaha, my husband is so good at not having clutter, my clutter amazes him!

    ReplyDelete
