What's In My Bag

I bought a new purse today.  For me, its not very surprising considering I am obsessed with handbags and switch them out constantly.  I didn't mean to buy a new bag, but it was on sale and I couldn't pass it up. The bag is actually small compared to what I am used to, so I had a hard time fitting everything in there. 

1.   Double Zip Bowling Bag, ZARA

I only bought this because it was on sale at ZARA for $39.99, half the price of the original $79.99 price tag. I love the taupe color because I can wear it with both black and brown tones. It also has a ton of pockets which means it will take be even longer to fine something in it!

2.   Wellesley Stacy Wallet, Kate Spade

I got this to "downgrade" from my Ted Baker wallet.  I wanted something less bulky and while this is long, it is quite compact.  It has several slots of cards, but it doesn't really hold bills that well. 

3.   Tiffany 1837 Round Sunglasses, Tiffany & Company


These are my prescription sunglasses that I got from Lenscrafters last year.  I try to wear my contacts as much as possible, but I can't wear them to work because the air and fluorescent lights really dry out my eyes. 

4.   Diane von Furstenberg Beauty Dahlia's Garden Blue Dome Bag
Diane von Furstenberg Beauty Dahlia's Garden Blue Dome Bag
I got this from Sephora a million years ago.  It has to be at least 6 years old.  It is a good nylon-like material so it easily cleans with a wet clothes

5.   Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder, Mirror, Refresh Optive Advanced, Advil, Too Faced Lip Insurance, kissing elixirs Natural Fresh Breath Mist, Maybeline Great Lash clear mascara, Tide to go mini, Laura Mercier Lip Balm, L'Oreal Colour Riche Colour Caresse in Blushing Sequin, Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in Tandy Mandarine, Anatasia Brow Whiz in Brunette, Jouer Essential Eye Clarifier

I have a bit of an obsession with lip products, so the fact that there are only 4 in my purse right now that all serve different purposes (print, lip balm, lipstick and lip gloss) it shocking. 

6.   Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes, Yes to Cucumber Soothing Facial Towelettes

I am not a germaphobe, but you never know when you need an antibacterial wipe, or when you need to wipe something down. I also always keep a small pack of face towelettes, especially in the summer time, in case I want to freshen up my makeup and start with a clean face, or in case it gets sticky and I just want to wipe everything off. 

7.   Filofax Osterley Compact Leather Organizer Wine Plum

Even though I have an iPhone, I prefer to write things down rather then type in my notes or reminders.  I only keep two sections in my filofax, a week on two pages calendar and notes.  The compact is a great size for my purse because it is not as small as the pocket, but just slight smaller then the personal.  (The rings size is smaller)

8.   Kleenex Brand Facial Tissues - I am such a nana with tissues.  I get horrible seasonal allergies so I always have a pack.

9.   iPhone 4S with Rose Gold Marc by Marc Jacobs Metallic Stardust Logo iPhone Case

Like everyone else on the planet I have an iPhone 4S (in white).  I have always been obsessed with white cell phones so when the white iPhone came out, I knew I had to have it.  While I have a problem with iPhone cases (check out my previous post here) I am currently using the Rose Gold Marc by Marc Jacobs Metallic Stardust Logo iPhone Case.  This is my goto case.  I have been using it for several months and it has held up well.

10.   REBECCA MINKOFF 'Can't Buy Me Love' Cory Pouch, wine with gold

I have a lot of pockets.  I think everything to have a place.  I use this small pouch to store my business cards, splenda, receipts, coupons, etc

11.   Business Cards, Splenda - (Stored in my Rebecca Minkoff pouch)  I use Splenda in everything but something I can't find it at restaurants or coffee shops so I keep it with me.  These packets aren't actual splenda but the Target branded equivalent.

12.   Tums Freshers Antacid - I more so keep these for other people . . . in case someone needs one.  They also double as breath mints.

13.   Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Hand Cream
Laura Mercier - Crème de Pistache Bath & Body Collection
I am obsessed with the smell of this.  I want the entire line.  It smells DELICIOUS!!!

14.   iPod Touch with Juicy Couture Cherries Case


I can't get through the day with out listening to music.  Even though I have an iPhone, I still use my iPod for tunes.  It goes from my bedside to the car to my office and back again.  Despite how many iPhone cases I have, I have had this case since I bought my iPod almost 2 years ago.
