I have friends that love to watch people apply makeup. I have friends that love to watch people cook. (You know who you are.) I am one of those friends that wants to know what’s in your purse. Not in that creepy, “hand it over and let me dig through it” kind of way; but more so, when you take something out of your secret pouch, I’d like to know what it is, where you got it, what it does, etc. That being said, I’m coming forward with the contents of mine…
A vintage snake bracelet – one of my favorite pieces of jewelry – in my purse just in case I need to spice things up a bit…and…well…because I like it.
A watch – why is it in my purse? Days that I forget to wear a watch are days that I just don’t feel like myself. This is a backup.
Allergease – ohh just the most amazing allergy fighting lozenge you’ll ever grace your mouth with. *Bonus – made with organic honey. *Added bonus – the company was started by one of my very best friends. I am so proud. Get a free sample here or order it here.
Sephora mirror – if you’ve ever received a Sephora gift card it’s likely that it came in one of these babies. It might even be worth more than the gift card itself.
Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo – WOW. This changed my life. To the co-worker that brought me into the know – I am forever in debt.
Keys – can’t get anywhere without ‘em!
Nail file – nothing is worse than a snagged nail that you can’t fix immediately. Nothing is better than being able to manicure your nails any time, anywhere.
Lancome Le Crayon Kohl – day to night with a smoky eye made easy – this tiny pencil is beyond.
Loose change – you’d be surprised how often this comes in handy.
Hair ties & bobby pins – I’ve always wanted to be the girl that could use one thin hair tie and call it a day. I need not one, but two, of the thickest hair bands and bobby pins at my beck and call if I even want to think about getting this mane under control. (I always bring an extra for good measure – they snap.)
Fortunes – I actually have a bowl of these at home – as cheesy as they can be, they make me smile. I’ll have the last laugh when I win the lottery someday with the numbers listed…..
Revlon Coral Reef Lip Gloss - I need options. This bright coral shade pops.
Ray Ban’s – I collect sunglasses. And by collect I mean hoard, love, can’t stop buying, will always feel like I need, etc. They’re always on me.
Lemon – no, I’m not pulling this out in a restaurant when they forget that I ordered my drink with lemon (although, I’ve been tempted). I use it to make both cold and hot lemon water throughout the day at work…and to share with friends that love lemons as much as I do.
Myntz – sold at Trader Joe’s, sugar free, aspartame free, dentist recommended breath mints. Amaze.
Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm – pretty sure we’ve discussed this before, but I’ll repeat again: this little pot of joy blows chapstick out of the water. Plus, it’s got a sheer gloss effect to it.
Best Pen Ever - I got this at the Paper Source. It’s purple, with a tiny felt tip point. It makes me want to write everything down. (Yes, I was the kid that asked for office supplies for Christmas at 8 years old…don’t judge.)
Elliott Lucca Wallet – I’ve been in the market for a new wallet, but I can’t seem to find one that compares. This was one of the first purchases I made as a Nordstrom intern, so maybe it’s the sentimental value that’s holding me back? Anyway- talk about a quality product. I’ve had it for eons.
Sharpies – (*see “Best Pen Ever.” I love office supplies.)
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream – Gasp! Another lip product? Okay, in all fairness this can be used as a healing cream anywhere on your body – but works exceptionally well for dry lips.
iPhone – enough said.
H&M Bracelets – these float around with me everywhere, on my wrist, in my purse, in my car. Sometimes I put them on. Sometimes I just like knowing they’re there.
The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector – The hand cream of all hand creams. I buy three at a time because I’m terrified that they’ll discontinue them one day…
NARS Gold Digger – this is the last lip gloss, I swear. This sheer, gold color looks ethereal on everyone. I love it.
Post It’s – addicted. (See “Sharpies.”)
LeSportSac pouch – This fun, bright print is easy to find in the darkest of bags and holds whatever I need or want it to. Yay!
So…..you know I’m dying to know…..what’s in your purse?!
