With medical school being done & residency starting just around the corner, John and I have been craving a little vacation before the chaos of moving/residency begins. In fact, we are planning to leave this weekend for a getaway to see a couple of friends! The Francis Tote is the perfect bag for our summer travels, it holds all of my necessities & will be the perfect carry-on! It is spacious enough to to carry all of the essentials, but not so big that I will overpack and be miserable walking through airports! Not to mention, it has an adorable red bow on it! It is exclusive to the kate spade new york in East Hampton but available online here

After 12 months of living out of bags & a suitcase, I've become a little OCD about my belongings staying organized. I love having everything compartmentalized with cosmetic bags, jewelry rolls, etc. I love my All For Color jewelry rolls because it keeps all of my jewelry from tangling up!  I use my cosmetic cases for things other than make-up... for example, I keep a small with that contains lipstick only, medium sized ones that hold earbuds, phone charger, travel sized stain removal wipes, antibacterial soap, etc. Also, I love my Tory Burch passport case because it's got a great section inside for storing important documents. I haven't been going out of the country but I like to use that section to store boarding passes, important receipts, etc. That way I can just keep a few things in it and keep my real wallet put away.

Make sure to enter the kate spade new york "make waves in Rios" sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip for 2 to Rio De Janeiro... more details on that here!

Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Thank you so much for reading!!
