Hey ladies! I’m super excited about today’s post. Our good friend and leader, Erika Hayes, is dumping out her handbag and revealing her must-have items to us. Erika and her husband Stephen serve as Campus Pastors of Covenant Church Carrollton. They have 2 kids, Bella and Max. In addition to being a full time wife, mom, and pastor, Erika is also a very talented writer. So, with such a full schedule, Erika knows the importance of keeping all the essentials close by! I asked her to not only take a picture of her must haves but also let us know why she loves each item. She has great style and impeccable taste! I know you’ll love getting to take a peek inside her purse.


Kate Spade 2016 Planner – I love to see my schedule written down, so carrying this cute, light-weight planner around with me is good for my brain!

PaperMate Flair Marker Pens – I love how these pens write! I use them in my planner and for everything I write in my daily life. My 8 year old daughter loves to “borrow” them!

Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo – this is my favorite dry shampoo! I have tried so many brands and I love this one the best! It smells amazing and provides just the right amount of volume to my roots.

Trish McEvoy 9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk Body Lotion – I always keep a hand lotion in my bag for re-applying on the go. Since this is one of my favorite fragrances, I love to carry the coordinating lotion!

Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm – This is a sheer lip balm that reads your body chemistry and creates a custom color on your lips! It’s super moisturizing, as well. I’ve bought it over and over again, which says a lot!

Ray-Ban Pink Aviator Sunglasses – this style is flattering on most face shapes and is always in style. My eyes are sensitive to bright sun, so these are a must-have!

Green apples are my favorite fruit! I love their tart flavor and they are low in natural sugar, yet high in fiber!

Young Living Deep Relief Oil Blend – This roll-on really saves the day for my neck when it’s feeling occasionally stressed or less than happy!

Thieves Spray – I use this to defend against the yuckies! I’ll spray down grocery carts, restaurant tables, airplane seats, etc. I’ll even spray it in my throat because it’s all natural!!

Vitamins- I carry these incase I forget to take my daily vitamins at home! I’ll take them when I’m out and about instead!

Kate Spade handbag, wallet, and phone case – KS has beautiful designs, her materials are always such high quality and last forever.


Thank you, Erika for telling us a bit more about your everyday must haves and for opening your bag to us! xoxo
