Me and my purse

By Thursday, April 14, 2011 13 No tags Permalink 0

I decided it was time to stop procrastinating. It’s been quite some time since I wanted to write this post and kept pushing it away, over and over again. But thanks to Mama’s Losing It’s prompts I decided I was going to do it today.

A few months back I entered a giveaway for a Navoh handbag. Lucky me, I WON!! I have always loved bags and I am just starting to appreciate shoes a bit more. I have a few purses that I’ve had since like forever. Two Christmases ago Tyler got me a Coach bag which is gorgeous but it is small in comparison to my new purse.



The purse is huge and can be used as a diaper bag which I rarely do. The boys have their own diaper bag…which is now more J’s bag than A.’s since he is wearing undies now! πŸ˜€


{Here’s what I carry in my purse}



  • Peppermint case which has no mints but hair pins and clips and bands.
  • Mineral Powder Foundation.
  • Bodicology body spray which smells awesome!
  • Neosporin for when the boys fall and get hurt
  • Tylenol. Stupid headaches!
  • My ChicoBag for when I go grocery shopping.
  • Markers! πŸ˜€
  • Wreck This Journal book which I have to get back into…asap! Great for helping de-stress!
  • Lip balm. I think it is vanilla flavored.
  • Snickers!! Oh such a healthy snack *wink*
  • Another lip balm…
  • Tampons! You never know when or who might need one!
  • Louis Vuitton wallet (a gift from my father-in-law)
  • Gray scarf.
  • Pink Moleskin notebook
  • Address book
  • Pencil
  • iPod…I am in serious need of more music!!
  • Yet another lip balm thingy
  • Makeup brush
  • Nail Polish
  • Leatherman Knife, which is awesome!
  • The lens cap to my camera…which I was wondering where it was!
  • Purell towel and Purell hand sanitizer…for when I change diapers on the go.


I usually carry my camera in the bag…but I was using it to take the photos. As to my iPhone…well, that one is always with me! It is either next to me, on my pocket, back pocket (which is not a good idea when you forget it is there and you go to the bathroom causing your phone to fall in the damn toilet! It survived though.), and even on my night stand. It is rarely in my purse. I tend not to be able to hear it when it rings if I store it in the depths of my purse, hehehe!

What does this say about me? That, erm…I have no clue!! It might say that for being someone who can’t stand putting lipstick, chapstick, lip balm on her lips I have one too many! The orange flavored one is awesome though! I usually wear chapstick over night…still wondering why they are doing in my purse.

It also says that from now on whenever I am missing something, lens cap, I should look in my purse first!

I have no clue…


I showed you mine. Show me yours!!

    I LOVE that purse shot. I want a giant version printed for my wall–it’s great Pop Art! My purse is currently a diaper bag, which is really a messenger satchel, but still… I know that one day in the future I will again have a real purse. Until then I’ll live vicariously through you. πŸ˜‰

    I can never find my lens cap. It’s been in my purse a time or two. I want a ‘wreck this journal’. Ive heard of them but never seen one before.
    Seems like you’re really prepared!

    This bag is beautiful. I <3 hand bags. It looks soft. (OK that sounds creepy–what i meant is it looks like pebble leather–which is soft)

    I love that the contents of your purse are color coordinated with the purse itself πŸ˜‰

    Love the journals! And lipbalms… I seem to collect them too but really only have one I love and use everyday (Alba’s Terra tints/Bloom). I’ll have to look into that Bodicology.. I love good smelly things especially to spray in my van that always seems to have an unidentifiable smell (wet dog? food/candy in dark corners/crevices… I dunno! but gross!).
    Love your purse too… that pink is so pretty!
