'Balls are to men what Purses are to women' 3/17/10

3/17/2010

what's in my bag? i know you all have probably seen these before--or have even done them yourselves--but i never have so now it's my turn.

first i thought, "why am i doing this? i don't have anything really cool or awesome in my purse."

but then i realized that i don't need to have anything super exciting or different. that is the point of this whole bag thing. i enjoy looking at the "what's in my bag" posts because it's neat (yes, neat) to see what other people lug around with them all day.

but i do hope you girls aren't schlepping around your 20 lb bags day in and day out because that's just no good for your posture. i would say, all you need are the essentials, but essentials are different for everyone. some people think tic tacs are essential (think Paulie Bleeker in Juno) while others obsess over random crap that they never use.

who knows...maybe the stuff in my bag is just as random and not too essential, but at least it weighs less than my Pomeranian so that's a plus. and sorry for the blurry pics.



- bag: Juicy Couture: got it from my fiance for Valentine's Day last year

- Louis Vuitton wallet: used for license, cards and bills...no change!

- pen and Post-it notes....i actually still write things down. it's crazy, i know

- book: "The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories" by Tim Burton: my friend got this for me from the MOMA

- Ralph Lauren sunglasses case: i actually don't remember where i got this

- Michael Kors sunglasses: i know, my case doesn't match my glasses, but oh well

- 5 Gum: i chew whatever gum my fiance buys and it's usually this or trident

- Fish comb...isn't it cute!

- Nokia phone: but i will be getting my android smartphone shortly.

- Purell and Gilchrist & Soames hand lotion (i love lotion!)

- My many gift cards (Victoria's Secret, Wetseal, Barnes & Noble and Borders): got to love a good deal!

- Chapsticks in Lip Butter and Cherry flavors

- Express Black Cherry Ice lip gloss and Forever 21 lip gloss (i have so many glosses it's not even funny. the extras definitely aren't essential, but they weigh nothing so c'est la vie.)

- My Jonathan Adler Nook: I'm currently reading Kelly Cutrone's book and it's great so far. i'll do a review on it once i'm finished.

- Scion key chain with pepperspray with my KitKat. i don't usually have chocolate in my purse (as gasp! i'm not a big chocolate fan), but i do love me some kitkats...and almond joys!

by the way, the title of this post is a quote from Carrie Bradshaw.
what's in your purse?

  14. so we have tons of the same stuff in your purse. Right when I looked at the pictures, i saw that fish comb and thought, "that is the greatest!" then i saw your list of details. too similar and great.
    love the VS cards (thats all i got too) BTW!!! if you use that, they give you one for the automatic $10 one, but could be more. (starts in April)

  18. I have always carried so much unnecessary crap around with me that I've down-sized my handbag and now have to think much more carefully about what I take out with me!

    In my bag at the moment we haaave...

    Two phones (one English, one Spanish)
    Purse
    Keys
    Diary
    Pens
    Notepad
    Lipbalm
    Gum
    iPod
    Comb
    Eyeliner
    Passport

    Okay, so maybe I am still carrying a lot of crap around with me but I promise I'm much better than I used to be!

  27. If only mine were this orderly! I have old scrunched up shopping lists, empty panadol packets from a headache I had like 3 weeks ago and piles and piles of old receipts! Sometimes –and I hardly even know if I should admit it- I even find scraps of paper with old bits of chewing gum inside. It’s the strangest thing because I am a super organized Virgo in the rest of my life but my bag is like a whole separate dimension

  28. This is awesome. A friend suggested I do this but I have MULTIPLE ever-changing purses and my content involves such things that only an art teacher could appreciate, like loose erasers, pencils, sharpies and masking tape...then of course my entire makeup bag and morning ritual because I usually get beautiful when I get to work (seriously)...

    Have a splendid weekend xoxoxo

  30. Lol @ the post title.
    Love the fish comb! Hehe (:
    & I have a couple of different bags that I use, depending on my outfit and I tend to carry around my wallet, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, my phone, a mirror, my checkbook and any other assorted things I feel like throwing in. Exciting, huh? ;D
