What's in my Bag?

I've had this blog for almost two years and I haven't done a what's in my bag post, can you believe it? My purse needs a good clear out so I figured I would catalog what is in it while I clean it out!

My purse is very, very old and well worn. It's a silver Coach purse that is a good size and I got for my sixteenth birthday. It's high quality but has definitely seen better days! I use this one because it is the only bag that is big enough for all of my crap, but small enough to carry around easily. It's a fairly neutral color, too, so I rarely switch it out for a different purse. We've been through some rough times, including the time it got ran over (and nothing in my bag was damaged!). Definitely worth the money, in my opinion, considering all the use I've gotten out of it. And onto what I fit inside of it...

Periwinkle blue Adrianne Vittadini wallet
I bought this at TJ Maxx a few months ago. It's big enough to fit money lengthwise, change, cards, pretty much anything else I need! I love the pop of color.

Inside of that I have the usual money and change, my student ID, driver's license, debit card, my TJ Maxx discount card, and a few gift cards that I plan to use soon, along with one free drink coin from a local bar for when I turn 21.

A Lilly Pulitzer wallet
I got this as a graduation gift from my aunts and I love it so much I wanted to put it to good use, even if it's too small to hold money lengthwise! Instead I put any other cards that I don't use as often in here. It includes gift cards and other vouchers.

The other things in my purse include...

My check from work

Meijer's coupons that I'm not planning to use and should give to someone who will

A bunch of receipts I need to throw away

My iPhone 6s

An iPod touch

Grape-flavored Motrin

Dental floss

My rose gold Fossil watch

Rose gold H&M sunglasses


A whistle from when I was a lifeguard

A mini flashlight that doesn't work

A houndstooth patterned nail file

An Anastasia Beverly Hills compact mirror

My car keys and an automatic starter

Way too many chocolate wrappers

Physician's Formula lip oil

MAC lipstick in Angel

A blue raspberry flavored lollipop (my professor gives them out during test to reduce test anxiety)

Kate Moss x Rimmel lipstick in the shade 45

Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom

Medicated Berry Blistex

Burt's Bees Wild Cherry lip balm

A rose gold bracelet I forgot I owned

Bath and Body Work's Caribbean Escape hand sanitizer

A boxcutter I accidentally took from work, but have kept for self-defense

A sample of the Benefit Ka-Brow that I meant to give to my coworker two months ago

And that is all! I'm surprised there weren't more lip products, to be honest, usually I have a week's worth of lipsticks in my purse. I think I need to switch to a smaller purse so I don't carry as much junk around with me all the time. But hey, girl's jeans don't have pockets so we need somewhere to put it all, don't we?

Do you carry a lot with you or are you a light traveler?

  7. I have a work bag and a weekend bag and I clean them out pretty often. It's amazing how many toys end up in my bag if I don't clean it.

  8. I haven't done a 'what's in my bag' post either and I was planning on doing one. I always carry too many products, especially lipsticks and hand cream, last time I checked I had 5 lipsticks and 3 hand creams in my bag!


  9. I'm still thinking how it got ran over and nothing was damaged? haha
    I wanna say I don't have much in my bag but that's because I carry 2 pouches inside that have all these small crap I carry around (like nail file, plasters, keys, etc) I do have a lot of stuff but it's so organized and I love it haha
    love your nail file :D
