What's In My Purse

Am I the only one who loves seeing what other people keep in their purse? I hope not because today I am taking you for a little tour of my handbag! I’m definitely the girl who keeps a lot in her bag. I like a big awesome tote or satchel for slinging my goods around and I never leave home without my favorite sunglasses, an excess of lip gloss and a notebook and pen. And that’s just scratching the surface! Want to see what else I have going on in there? Click through to see what’s in my purse!

    My bag of choice for the last several months has been this leather satchel from Deux Lux. I picked it up at Marshall's for about $40 but you can find a similar one from Deux Lux here. I'm in love with the size, the gold hardware, the color and the pretty purple lining!

    An overview of the things you might expect to find in my purse on any given day includes my tablet (this one from Samsung), lip gloss, sunglasses, a notebook, a mini deodorant, keys, my wallet, my iPhone and my passport.

  • Heel + Lip Relief 4 of 8
    What's In My Purse

    Because I wear a lot of heels and flats that occasionally tend to rub, I like to keep a Dr. Scholl's Rub Relief stick in my bag at all times. A nourishing lip salve is also a must - I love the rosebud salve from Smith's.

  • Passport + iPhone 5 of 8

    Some people consider it odd that I keep my passport in my purse most of the time, but we live just 20 miles from the Canadian border and, especially in the summer, impromptu lunches or dinners over the border are a common occurrence. I also always have my iPhone handy - this case is part of my collection I created with Chromatic & Co.

  • Wallet + Sunglasses 6 of 8
    What's In My Purse

    I love a good French fold wallet because it holds a lot of cards without a lot of bulk. This one is one I got from Coah eons ago. I never leave home without big sunglasses - my current everyday shades are my Michael Kors. (Find similar ones here.)

  • Lip Gloss + Concealer 7 of 8
    What's In My Purse

    I love lip gloss and I carry it in abundance on the daily - current favorites include Rimmel Stay Glossy in Treasure Hunt and Maybelline Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach. I also keep a thing of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Concealer in Light hanging around because I have dark circles that I just hate.

  • Notebook + Pen 8 of 8
    What's In My Purse

    For doodles, shopping lists, and reminders to myself, I always keep a pocket-sized notebook and a pen handy. This notebook is from Target and my go-to pen (as in, I never use anything else) is the  Pilot G2-05 in black.
