What's in my Bag?

I've seen many ladies post about what lives in their purse!
I thought it was a great idea, but of course, my purse is a constant mess.
I just got a new one (and am in love), so while I was organizing/going through things, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show ya what's inside!
And pretend I'm normally organized.

You would probably think I have a purse for every outfit. Not true. I hate changing purses- I always forget something, don't remember what's where and it just makes my life more difficult. So, I like to find purses that are neutral and versatile. 
Now that I'm just putting it all out there, I haven't bought a new purse in over a year.
Hangs head in fashion shame.

1. Little pouch where random necessities hang out- extra contacts, eye drops, advil, hair ties, etc.
2. Other little pouch for receipts and pens- I have a problem with receipts floating around everywhere. This helps!
Here's a closer look:

3. Wallet. I'm currently in the "smaller wallet phase". I never carry my checkbook so don't really see a need to have a bigger wallet right now. There's a little zipper pouch for coins on the other side and it's perfect (Coach, Spring 2011)

4. Sunglasses. You can never have too many!

5. Beauty necessities:

Jouer lip gloss, Fresh Sugar Rose (all time FAVORITE)..both thanks to Birchbox!
Basin chapstick (Vanilla)
Revlon Lip Butter- love the sheer tint
Not pictured: at least a couple Burt's Bees chapsticks (my fav is Mango!)

J.R. Watkins Hand & Cuticle salve.. this is a hand saver! Again, a Birchbox goodie
Also, hand sanitizer. Always.

6. Randoms- Pocket brush, work keys, gum, snacks (ALWAYS carry snacks to prevent headaches)

7. Electronic stuff- Bluetooth earpiece, earbuds, cell phones (small one is my work cell).

So there you have it!
My new purse is from the Coach Factory Store (a fancy way of saying "outlet"). This lovely establishment is located 3 miles from my house. Dangerous.
Lucky for my bank account, I usually have pretty good self-control. 
I was desperate for a new purse, though, so I picked up this gorgeous thing!

What's in your bag?

Oh, and by the way...
Check out Stephanie's giveaway! I'm giving something away... and here's a little hint :)

That's not a hint at all. I just spoiled it. 

Last but not least.
I can't believe it's been 11 years. I'll never be able to forget the feelings of shock, fear, and confusion {and so much more}. I'm thinking of the families of those who lost their lives and can't even imagine how they must feel. The patriotism and unity that resulted from this tragedy makes me proud to be American. I hope that everyone can take a moment to remember <3


  1. I like to have one bag as well and not change my purses or I loose stuff too! Glad to know I'm not the only one :) I also love your idea of a little bag for receipts- I am going to have to copy that!

  2. Man you carry crazy amounts of stuff in your purse. Cassie loves those gummies from Target!! I've had to hide them because she has started going into our pantry to get them and would probably eat the entire box if I would let her.

  3. Your purse looks like mine...haha. I have so many different lip glosses and chapsticks floating around in there. And I have a little pouch for receipts. I also don't change purses much, so I never feature purses in my outfit photos. It would always be the same one!

  4. i love my sugar rose lip balm too, love love it!! And i need to get a little pouch to put all of my random floating receipts in that is a great idea!

  5. I am stealing your idea for a little pouch to keep receipts in. Otherwise, they are constantly all over my bag!!
    Otherwise, I carry all those ridiculous things in my bag, and that's just my purse.
    My school bag - that's a whole 'nother story!!! :)

  6. we have the same purse, but mine is dark brown! :)

  7. Where are the little pouches from? I've been looking for some that are cute, and these are totally my style. Stopping over from Bourbon & Glitter.
