It’s been a while since our last #PBWIMB Instagram Roundup, what with all of the holiday chaos that went on these past couple months, but we’re back, and the bags you photographed look better than ever. Judging by the bags we’ve seen on our feeds lately, either all of you were on the nice list this year, or you treated yourselves to some seriously good arm candy.

As the leaves are changing, so are the contents of your handbag. While we love seeing plenty of cute wallets, sunglasses and pretty iPhone covers, we found ourselves taking a closer look at some of the beauty products you guys are using to keep your skin looking flawless this season. While most of the bags we saw this week on #PBWIMB were dark shades of navy and black, we were especially happy to see some of you still breaking out those pops of color.

This week on our Instagram feed, we saw tons of totes and satchels filled with printed pouches, beauty essentials and Karen Walker sunglasses. But as the temperatures begin to drop, we’re expecting bigger bags filled with all your winter accessories. Continue to snap pictures of what’s inside your bag using #PBWIMB for your chance to be featured on the blog. Peek below to see inside some of our favorite purses of the week!

I’m not a big makeup person. In fact, I typically don’t wear it. I am, however, a big fan of taking care of my skin, so every morning and evening I go through a routine which will hopefully help keep my face looking young and fresh for years to come. When it came to finding a beauty bag, I decided I had to go with Chanel, because what’s more classic than a quilted Chanel cosmetic pouch?

If you have followed our In My Bag series so far, you will realize I carry a variety of odd items around with me. I’m a Virgo, so I am fairly Type A and I really love planning. I see my handbag as a portable hold-everything kit. I keep all essentials at all times and find a way to keep my bag from being too heavy, even with my somewhat ridiculous mix of items.

If you follow us on Twitter (which you totally should, so follow!), then you that we have been prepping for New York Fashion week for the past few weeks. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do for my job and to get to do it with people I truly enjoy working with, and obviously Fashion Week is one of the many perks.

For a long time, I wasn’t a major lipstick fan, and I suppose it was simply because I couldn’t find the right shade to work on me and I was intimidated by the multitude of colors. Not long ago, though, I came to the conclusion that it takes time for everyone to find the shade(s) that work and it is all about trial and error.

While I add and remove contents from my bag constantly, one of the things I never remove is Band-Aids. Ever since I moved to NYC, I can’t leave the apartment without them. And if I do, it always ends up being on the day that I am breaking in new shoes and have to stop in a drug store to pick a box up.

I love to accessorize. Rings and bracelets are my favorite jewelery items and I always have something extra floating around in my bag to throw on when needed. This week I was playing with these new Plukka Attica and Ramses Rings and I just couldn’t get enough.

I am always drawn to stand-out rings that completely catch the eye. Plukka designed the Attica and Ramses rings which are total statement rings.

Recently, we’ve realized that we’ve left a large void on PurseBlog. We mostly talk about bags themselves, but not everything that is carried inside. Of course the bag is incredibly important, but carrying all of our daily essentials is the reason why we are out buying bags in the first place – we need something to carry our belongings. Although most women carry the same types of objects on a daily basis, the objects themselves vary widely from woman to woman.
