Wild About… What’s In Our Bags

You can tell a lot about a woman by the stuff that she lugs around in her bag, by the things she determines are essential to pack while on the go.

I decided to spill my secrets, and share with you a few of my favorite must-have-at-all-times items lurking in my purse.

So, what’s in my bag?

Until recently, I never realized my bag was lacking something. Then the good folks at Pinch Provisions sent a Mini Emergency Kit my way, and suddenly the item I never knew I needed became a can’t-live-without.

You cannot believe how much they’ve crammed into this tiny thing (the bag is about the size of the palm of my hand). Crayons, band-aids, pain relievers, breath freshener, sewing tools, floss, playing cards, tissues, hand cleanser, gum, lip balm, hair elastics, earring backs, nail file, deodorant, stain remover, thermometer, and a safety pin. Yeah, they thought of everything.

What else is in my bag? A collection of MAC lipsticks, in all different shades (though Fresh Moroccan is my fave), and EOS lip balm for the days I’m going with the natural look. I store all of the these in my Stella & Dot Pouf – no more digging around the bottomless pit of my bag to reapply.

I also keep sunscreen on hand, like Coola. I love the smell, and reapplying an SPF throughout the day is important even in the winter months, particularly for a ghost-like girl like me.

Also in my bag is an extra pair of glasses or sunglasses. A girl’s gotta be prepared, right? Here are some super cute options to choose from if you’re in the market for a new pair – AND there are some really great deals!

    Happy Fri ladies. xox
