The prompt for July's edition of The Circle is: What's In Your Bag?
I've never done a post like this before, so I was really excited when Kiki and I decided on this one. You guys are going to get the inside scoop on everything that that goes inside my messy purse! ;) The articles in my bag tend to change depending on the situation, but these items are the ones I tote around on an everyday basis.
KEYS | I have way too many non-key related items on my key chain, but it makes it easier for me to fish them out of my purse!
WALLET | This Fossil wallet has been my favorite wallet I've ever owned. I got it on super sale (like for $10!) a few years ago, and I want it to last forever! Notable things inside: ice cream punch card (incredibly important), voter registration card, Starbucks gold card...
KLEENEX | Guys, you never know when you might have a sudden allergy attack or a spontaneous cry fest and need a nice soft tissue for your runny nose and streaky mascara.
HEADPHONES | I take headphones with me every where I go and always keep a set at work. Listening to music is how I get through the work day and drown out all the office distractions.
CONCEALER | Yes, I'm almost 26 years old and still occasionally have breakout. Quick question: does it ever end? #reallife So I always keep a good concealer with me just in case. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
EYEDROPS | During allergy season, which is basically 3/4 of the year in the south, my eyes get really dry and irritated. Staring at a computer screen all day at work doesn't exactly help the situation. My eye doctor recommended some good eye drops to help keep my contacts clear and my eyes moisturized.
GUM | I mean, who doesn't keep gum in their purse? Amiright?
ZIP POUCH | I got this adorable pouch from Elah Tree, and I must say it's great for organizing smaller items in my bag, and it can also be used as a clutch!
SUNGLASSES | My sunnies go with me everywhere. I have blue eyes and blue eyes are extra sensitive to the sun! Plus, I'm all about protecting my eyesight. I'm already halfway blind without my contacts! I've gotta do what I can to help my eyes out!
HAIR ACCESSORIES | You will almost never find me without a hair tie around my wrist. I get mine from The Liberty Shoppe on etsy. You should check them out! A portion of every sale supports efforts to fight human trafficking.
HAND SANITIZER | "Are you sure this water's sanitary?" Name that movie. I keep hand sanitizer in my purse at all times. There are so many germs floating around out there and you don't always have soap and water and a sink handy (unless you're Mary Poppins, who apparently has everything in that carpet bag of hers.)
CHAPSTICK & LIPSTICK | I used to use the Blistex brand of chapstick until someone introduced me to EOS lip balm. It changed my life and I'm never going back. Helpful hint: buy the value pack at Costco. It's less expensive that way! I also love Maybelline's Baby Lips. I'm not a huge lipstick kind of girl, but I love that this moisturizes your lips while giving them a little bit of color. "Peach Kiss" is my favorite.
iPHONE | What can I say? I love my iPhone. It's my mobile computer plus so much more. I use it for taking photos, using Instagram, checking email, communicating with my friends, listening to music, and occasionally playing games. My current favorite game is Two Dots. Warning: it's incredibly addicting.
So there you have it friends. The inside scoop. Whip up a post this week and link-up with us for The Circle!
