For the past couple weeks, I have been magazine crazed. I can’t stop flipping through the glossy pages, tearing out inspiration, and circling design ideas. You see, I’m currently in the process of rebranding and designing a new website (yay!) … for a look that is more Brittany Bekas Photography than it is right now .. and in the process I have been inspired by so many articles for fun blog ideas … what is in my bag.

I mean, I kindda love seeing what other people have in their purses. There is something relatable about it that makes me feel a little less weird for some of the things I always have with me. So here is a little look into my purse.

Chicago and Destination Wedding + Lifestyle Photographer | Brittany Bekas Photography

[ MICHAEL KORS SNAKESKIN WALLET ] I adore this wallet … and any hint of animal print means I must own it.

[ iPHONE] Between looking up directions (because I am always lost), instagram and my calendar, I spend more time with this than anything else.

[ BUSINESS CARDS ] You never know when you will meet someone or have the chance to enter a great lunch giveaway, so I always have a handful.

[ NAIL FILE ] I am a bit OCD about my nails, so I always have a nail file on me … and I clearly cannot resist the print.

[ MINT GREEN RING ] I can’t get enough of rings right now, but I especially love this one because it was my Grandma Ro’s. I feel like her creativity is with me when I wear it.

[ BOBBY PINS ] I like to pull my hair off my face when I am shooting, so I keep a few spare ones for any hair emergencies.

[ MAC LIPSTICK + GLOSS ] I throw this combo on no matter if I have a full face of make-up or not.

[ CANON CAMERA ] This little guy comes all most everywhere with me. I can never miss a photo opt. And this is a little more discreet than my Nikon.

[ KEYS ] My apartment keys along with two great keychains … my Hawaiian name I got in Maui, Pililiaki, and a vintage key/bottle opener from my dear friend, Jess’ wedding.

[ MARC BY MARC JACOBS GREY LEATHER BAG ] I treated myself to this beautiful leather bag when I got my first “adult” job after college. And every time I pick it up and carry it, it makes me smile to see how far we’ve come together.

What’s lurking in your purse? I would love to know.
