What's in My Bag?

I remember when I first started reading blogs, this kind of post was everywhere. Every blogger would show you the innards of their purse and it was the greatest thing ever. Everyone always had such cute purse contents. Well, it has been a few years and I can't remember the last time I've seen one of these posts! I thought it would be fun to have a kind of throwback and also get the chance to do one of these posts myself, now that I finally have a blog of my own :)

This purse is easily my new favourite. Mike bought it for me for Christmas and I think it is just beautiful. I've always wanted a Roots crossbody bag, and I love the simplicity of this one. It goes with everything, seriously. I'm starting to feel bad about abandoning the rest of my purse collection because I love it so much. And now... *drumroll* here are all the items I stow away inside this beautiful bag:

Some pretty standard purse-items, I'd say. Car keys, iPhone. A pair of glasses and an owl contacts case, in case of an eye-mergency ;) My passport in case there is an unplanned last-minute trip across the river... My adorable card holder from UO that cost me $5 (steal!)... And a back-up hair elastic and a sole bobby pin (pretty sure I've already misplaced that bobby pin since taking this photo). Some of my purse belongings are also particularly North-Ontarian. It is never smart to brave the cold without an abundance of hand lotions and chapsticks. I especially love my pumpkin hand lotion from Bath & Body Works. And finally, a necklace and bracelets that I shove in my bag at the end of a long day.

Mike has always refused to go into my purse to retrieve anything, because he is gentelman-ly and adorable. But I've always told him I've got nothin exciting going on in there. And I just think it's hilarious that I am now posting the contents of my purse on the internet for all to see. I will have to warn him to skip this post ;)

So guys, let's do it, let's bring back the "What's in my Bag" posts! Let's see what you're hiding in your handbags! :)

  6. where do you live that you might be crossing borders?! that sounds so adventurous haha. and if i did this post i think people would be alarmed hahah- mine is SO messy with movie ticket stubs, crumpled receipts, a thousand pens, and an occasional forgotten about lipstick pencil. It's a horror in there.
