In a sea of
bloggers, Rebecca Marin stands out with her gorgeously unique taste. If you
ever have the pleasure to meet Rebecca in person, you’ll see what a genuine and
lovely person she is—exactly how she comes off on her blog. With an internship
at Vogue (yes—Vogue!) and many other
accomplishments under her (vintage-chic) belt, it’s without a doubt Rebecca has
a very bright future in the fashion industry or in whatever she decides to do.
Did I also mention she has a really cute boyfriend? Clearly, I can’t gush about
this girl enough. I’m so pleased to introduce you to Rebecca Marin. Now let’s
take a quick peek inside her purse…

My 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli satchel is my
absolute favorite thing. It goes with everything I wear and is big enough to
hold all of my essentials! (Black is sold out but a cute white one is available

1. iPad 2 – I take
it everywhere with me. I always like taking little breaks in my errands to sit
down somewhere like a coffee shop and read a book, work on my blog, arrange my
calendar, or respond to emails. With my iPad, I can do all of those things!
2. Clinique Moisture Surge – My skin is very dry, but if there is any contact with oil, it
freaks out. So this oil-free moisture surge is the best solution to hydrate my
skin. I keep it handy in my purse just in case I need to feel refreshed. The
best thing? You can put it on top of your makeup!
3. Michael Kors
wallet – (old, but similar
4. Starbucks Very Berry Hibiscus VIA Refresher – I gave up drinking coffee quite some time ago so
when I tried my first Starbucks refresher I fell in love. Specifically, with
the natural boost of energy this tea drink gives me each morning. I have one
almost every day! I always have a VIA packet in my purse just in case I need a
little pick me up.

5. Claude Monet’s The Artist’s Garden at Giverny iPhone case – This was a gift from my boyfriend,
who knows that Monet is my favorite artist.
6. I keep my bobby
pins clipped on this Anthropologie tag.
7. My favorite pen
8. Kiehl’s vanilla lip balm – I keep this outside my makeup bag for easy access.

10. My notebook that my former bosses at
VOGUE gifted to me.

9. H&M makeup bag 
- CoverGirl mascara 
- LORAC liquid eyeliner 
- Fresh lip treatment 
- Moroccanoil treatment – makes my hair feel silky and smells so good! Every time I use this,
people ask what perfume I’m wearing 
Essie’s “Good as Gold” 
- Neutrogena concealer 
- Susan Posnick lip gloss in “Stevie”

11. Kate Spade credit card holder – I use this to carry my business cards

    Haha, she is clearly a bit of a clutterbug, so many small objects! I'm the same, I'm always rummaging around for pens and chapstick and whatnot.

    Beautiful iPhone case!

      I really am! That's why I always carry big bags – I have so much stuff that I carry around! hehe.

      Thank you, Isa!
