what's in my purse


I always get a kick out of when people do these types of posts (fuels the voyeur that lurks within) so I thought I'd make a post of my own. I think that the insides of a purse can tell you a lot about a person so without further adieu,  I present to you the contents of my humble purse:

Brown leather purse: Salvation Army. It didn't have a strap so I unclipped the strap of a vintage Dooney & Bourke bag. I never realized how useful having a purse with both a handle and a side strap is. I don't think I'll ever go back!

Little blue coin purse with the cutest frog zipper: A Japanese thrift store find courtesy of my best pal Natalie.

Vintage red felt and floral embroidered clutch: St. Vincent de Paul. One of my first ever thrift store finds, way back in high school. Houses all of my random makeup

A few loose hair ties (that's how long my hair is now, I can wear it in a bun again)

Small tin of Nivea hand cream: CVS. SO much better than the Nivea from a bottle. I love thick it is and a little goes a long way.

Two 25% off coupons for the Goodwill

My keys (On a cheapo MBMJ keychain that needs to be replaced, along with a Peek-A-Pooh that lost his clothes)

Korres Lip Butter Glaze in Rose: From Sephora. A really great lip gloss/ lip balm hybrid. Love the healthy red color.

Jack Black Lip Balm in Lemon Chamomile: From Sephora. My new current lip obsession, it smells sooo good!

EO Hand Sanitizer Spray in Lavender: From Whole Foods. I am a hand sanitizer freak (kinda  have to be if you do the amount of rummaging I do in dusty thrift stores) and this one is really great. I also use it after I eat anything with my hands (Anyone else get grossed out by the smell of food on their hands after they've eaten? It's the worst!)

iPhone 4: An early Christmas gift from my mom :D

Tide to Go Pen: I'm an embarrassingly messy eater.  I get food stains on places that defy logic.

"Egyptian Goddess" roll on essential oil: From Mother's Market. Silly name but  the scent smells like fresh laundry.

Two random ball point pens

Cat eye sunglasses: From Asos. I think it's the perfect cat eye shape and I love the faux tortoise shell! I think these were like $22

Red faux leather wallet: Goodwill

Question: What are some of your purse essentials?
