You’ll probably recognize Kendi Skeen from her style blog, Kendi Everyday, where she models affordable threads that she mixes (and remixes) together for stylish looks that are feminine, smart, and budget friendly. If perusing her web pages aren’t enough, you can now shop her nearly one-year-old boutique, Bloom, in downtown McKinney for colorful basics, flirty dresses, and on-trend accessories. (We even awarded Bloom one of the ten best undercover shops in DFW.) This morning she visited our offices to spill her bag. Take a look.

Brahmin bag

1. Notebooks and day planner. “If I don’t write something down, I’ll forget. I keep notebooks for my to-do list and another for ideas.”
2. Michael Kors wallet. “It was a gift from my husband.”
3. Sunglasses. “An old standby from Target. If I buy nice ones, I break them.”
4. Sephora Rouge Cream lipstick in “It Girl” (“It’s my favorite shade–good for a pop of color.”) and eyelash curler (“I constantly have an eyelash curler, mascara, and concealer in my bag.”)

5. Hand sanitizer. “I don’t know what it is about my late 20s, but now I’m a germaphobe.”
6. Stamps. “Email is good, but old fashion mail is good, too. I’m always at the post office.”
7. ZuZu Luxe mascara and Maybelline The Falsies mascara. “I keep two so there’s always one in my purse.”
8. iPhone. “Everything is on there.”
9. Pentel EnerGel Deluxe Liquid Gel Pen. “I only like to use this kind of pen. I have terrible handwriting, and it’s the only that that makes it legible.”
10. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer. “This is THE concealer.”
11. (beauty products from left) Tresemmé hairspray (“To go from day to night”), bobby pins, Evolution Of Smooth lip balm in Sweet Mint, Revlon Colorburst lip balm in Peony (“I go through a lot of lip balm”), and Essie polish in Clambake (“Just a fun summer color”)
12. Baggu zip pouch bag in platinum. “It’s from Bloom. It’s where I keep my essentials.”
