What's in my bag? (Summer edition!)



Three months ago, I showed you what was really in my purse -- from the handful of receipts to the birth control pills. It was a super silly post, so this time, I'm getting serious. Before revealing the details of my cute new Target satchel, I decided to clean it out a bit and show you only the most appropriate essentials. However, I can't help but be embarrassed after seeing Vahni's bag. She has an iPhone; I have an old phone. She has fringe; I have faux. She has a makeup bag; I have a single tube of lip gloss. Can we say sexy-meets-techie up in here?



Now, the contents of my own handbag may not be as classy, but I daresay just as sassy. The details: A Susan Nichole wallet, chock-full of plastic (don't tell the theatre my student ID expired in 2009); a picture of Michael C. Hall (I'm obsessed with him); vanilla-coconut flavored gloss (so yummy); gum; my dear Moleskine; my phone (also from 2009); my point-and-shoot; some business cards; and keys. Seeing as this satchel is one-third the size I normally carry, I'm pretty pleased I could fit all of this... yay!




PS: Next time I might make an annoying video... we'll see.

  1. How cute is this post? Love what you wrote, and your pared-down little red bag! I carry so much stuff all the time, I have to be organized. And yes, it's true. I'm a total techie!

    Thanks for the peek, and the mention, sweetie.

  9. Make an annoying video!!! I wanna see! I miss you! I'm just getting done with my "what's in my bag" post and good grief, could I fit more sh*t in there? My bag is so big you could fit TWO purse dogs in there. Ha.

    And by the way, let's P-L-A-N! I don't think I can do IFB, it's a week after burning man and I won't have the time or $$:( Let's do something else instead!

  19. I shared this post when I first saw it but didn't have a chance to comment. This was brilliant. Love how you presented your bag items! I think V puts us all to shame... my bag is a total mess compared to hers!

    Also, adore Michael C. Hall. Can't wait for Dexter to come back!

  20. I'd love to see an annoying video! Honestly I love the "what's in my purse" posts. There's nothing all that interesting in mine though. I'm a minimalist.
