What's in my Kate Spade bag?

Here is what I have been carrying in my bag lately.  This is the Kate Spade  Cove Street Goldie Crosshatched Satchel, you can find it here.

In the two open side pockets I keep my sunglasses, which are from Target and my phone, which is the iPhone 6s in gold.  In the like bottom of the bag I keep my Vera Bradley black leather wallet/crossbody, to see more of what this bag looks like in side checkout this post.  I also have some of my favorite Orbit gum, a phone charger, because I never have my phone charged lol and I have my car keys, which are on a Vera Bradley lanyard in the pattern Sierra.  In the zipper pocket I just have a few essentialsl the Burt's Bees chap stick, which is my favorite, the Burt's Bees cuticle cream because I always want to do my cuticles when I am waiting somewhere and I have a small pack of Neutrogena makeup remover wipes.

A Healthy Treat

Here is a good precipice I found on Pinterest for chocolate chip banana cookie/bars.  It super easy and great to have for a healthy alternative snack.
super easy: 2 RIPE bananas mine were not... 1.5 cups of quick oats 1/2 cup of peanut butter 1/4 cup of chocolate chips 

bake at 350 for at least 15 minutes

I found this recipe here.
I also made amazing banana muffins from another recipe I found on Pinterest.

So my first goal is to be positive, I genuinely struggle with staying positive and not complaining about everything.  So this year I am going to start being a more optimistic person.  How am I going to do this?  Well, I will try to remember all of the things that I am grateful for and I will also try to be more thankful for all of the wondering people, opportunities and other things in my life.  Also, when I start to begin thinking negatively I am really going to try to stop myself from thinking that way.

Mini After Christmas Haul

I went shopping to spend some of my gift cards that I received for Christmas and here is what I got!

Then I went to Vera Bradley and got the prettiest crossbody that is all a wallet!  I have been looking for a nice wallet and have been looking for a crossbody so I was so excited when I saw this...unfortunatley it was a little more than I thought I would spend at the mall this trip but I am so glad I decided to buy it, it's beautiful!
