What’s in My Bag? + U by Kotex

U by Kotex pads - shad's summer bag

Introducing the tartelette 2 in bloom palette – featuring 12 brand new, never-before-seen shades.

It’s summer and usually I’m living for the beach, hit weather and fun. My bag tends to be fairly empty and also somewhat eclectic. I haven’t done a what’s in bag before so I figure this would be fun to do.

Inside Shae’s Bag: the Summer Edition

My favorite purse of all time has got to be this animal print tote via C-Wonder (see photo above). I got this via an event some time ago and I love it! It’s big but not overbearing and it’s the perfect carry all bag for my summer extravaganza. And besides I’m a sucker for anything leopard print.

Some Essentials


so far it’s chock full with sunglasses (yes leopard print! lol), a ton of lip pies, and big secret: I use the Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar mini for my lips, it works wonders, my reading glasses, water bottle, tablet, busted phone, headphones and some keys. I also always stash some form of hand lotion.


S'well Bottles - 160x600

pocket change, a few pens (this is literally two of too many actually in my bag), metro card (the NYC subway’s bff), a bunch of food cards lol, handy mirror, hand sanitizer and a few headbands because you never know when you’ll need to put the natural hair into a puff.

Other than those items above it really varies from trip to trip daily. But something else I tend to carry on hand is that lady’s best friend when aunt flo comes around: you know what I’m talking about- the sanitary pads/napkins.

The intimate pouch:

Save the undies with U by Kotex

Yes ladies, as we are all aware, that time if month can creep up on us unexpectedly sometimes. I usually carry a few pads with me in case I need one or a friend might need one (cause you just never know!) in an effort to help #savetheundies I was delighted that U by Kotex created these awesome 3d capture core sanitary napkins. I mean, they look awesome to walk with (bye bye ugly pads!) and they are pretty comfy. Speaking of pads, am I the only one who lived in fear of ruining my awesome pairs of undies? Well not anymore.
