My obsession for beautiful handbags started at a very young age, in fact I was first introduced to Coach as a pre-teen. Then, a proud owner of a Coach wristlet which at the time was a pretty big deal. In high school I’d graduated to a mini cross body and then the little shoulder bags. It’s been over a decade since my high school days and it seems my path has circled back to one of my oldest favourites.

Nowadays as a working woman always on-the-go, I need a handbag that offers just as much function and organization as it does style, which is exactly why I fell in love with this Rogue classic carryall.

If there was ever a handbag built for me, this is it! The pebble leather feels so luxurious, it’s got two outer compartments (aside from the middle one that zips closed for privacy) designed with luxe suede lining and is spacious enough to hold all my daily essentials. Speaking of which, here are the 6 items I don’t leave home without – all fitting perfectly in my Rogue carryall;

1. Day Planner
I may work in tech but I’m still a paper and pen girl at heart. I use STIL Classics 12 month planner to map out my schedule, stick to my monthly budget, keep track of my to-do list (there’s even monthly to-do lists, by category) and set monthly goals.

2. Antioxidant Lip Repair
This potent treatment helps fight the signs environmental damage, while smoothing and rehydrating the lip surface. I always keep this in my purse so my lips are never dry or cracked not only during the winter months, but year round.

3. Portable Power Charger
Now that I have my own portable power charger it’s rare that I ever have a low battery on my phone. Not only is this charger super thin and compact but has enough juice to charge your phone up to three times!

4. Wireless Earbuds
Weather I’m listening to music at the gym or taking a call remotely, these wireless earbuds have you covered once you’ve paired them up to your smartphone. These would also make a terrific Christmas gift!

5. Tablet
I never leave the house without my tablet. I love that it fits perfectly into my Rogue handbag in one of the side compartments and is protected by the interior luxe lining.

6. Lipstick
..and last but certainly not least! I NEVER leave the house without one or two lipsticks in my purse. You never know when you might need to freshen up at a moments notice and a pop of color is the perfect finishing touch to any look, dressy or casual. Right now I’m loving Charlotte Tilbury ‘Bosworth’s Beauty’ and Mac ‘Flat Out Fabulous’.
