The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey’s new Cargo by Cynthia Bailey collection already has a fan base. “I wore this orange backpack in Jamaica for our cast trip, and everyone wanted one,” she says of her creation. The model and designer, 47 — who appears on the Bravo series (Sundays at 8 p.m. ET) with her husband, Peter Thomas, and daughter, Noelle, 16 — gets real with Us. Find out below what she keeps in her satchel!

Shining Bright

“I just got this iPhone 6 Plus case with a built-in light by a company called Lumee. It’s helpful for taking selfies — especially when you’re a vain old selfie queen like me!”

Crunch Time

“I love, love, love potato chips. I like the Classic Lay’s — not the baked kind, honey! When I’m traveling, I’ll have a Coke Zero with a big ol’ bag of salty chips.”

Cream of the Crop

“I use Preparation H as an under-eye depuffer, which is helpful when I’m filming early in the morning. It sounds gross, but it works!”
