FBFF: What's In My Bag


Wow! I haven't done a what's in my bag post in more than two years! But I suppose that makes sense because I don't really change up the things in my bag that often.

For those of you who don't know, I am a member of the wonderful blogging community known as Fashion Beauty Friend Friday, and seeing that this was the topic for today, I just had to join in for this FBFF link up.

So let's take a look at what's in my bag!Jason Wu satchel ~ with a ball of lip gloss hanging from it♥
♥Michael Kors wallet I bought in 2010 in West Palm Beach♥
♥Ralph Lauren sunglass case (with signature MK sunnies) ~ I own other sunnies; I just wear these all the time for some reason♥
♥Heart-shaped mirror ~ actually came with my Juicy Couture bag♥
Anastasia of Beverly Hills Hydrafull gloss in plastic♥
♥Dior DiorShow mascara♥
♥Dentyne Ice gum♥
♥A note that I wrote for myself called "Blog Goals by end of 2012" ~ it's good to have goals!♥♥Flower design business card holder (complete with business cards, of course) from my hubs' aunt♥
♥Google smartphone♥
♥Paris travel bag (filled with all kinds of crap) from Paris♥
♥Butterfly purse hanger I got from Chinatown in San Fran♥
♥Cetaphil hand lotion & Vanilla hand sanitizer♥
♥Strawberry chapstick ~ I usually get cherry, but I was walking on the wild side♥
♥Ball point pen and hair elastic♥
FYI, this is a photo of what was in my bag back in March 2010. Some things change while others stay the same...even true about the contents of your purse.

  1. This post is getting me motivated to organize my bag again, I am out of things like tissues which I was needing the other day, so I must fix that. And I also need to get some business cards made, which I keep forgetting to do to, so this is a reminder. My bag is full of some of the same, add some diapers and baby stuff when I don't feel like lugging around a big diaper bag. Candies, band-aids (we call them plasters here, so I am trying to remember the American way to say things, I've been away too long) and most def hair ties as my hair freaks out sometimes in the weather, haha!! Awesome post..have a great weekend :) xx

  2. Look at you... You're so organized!! I'm impressed! My bag's a mess. I forgot to do this, but have scheduled it for a couple weeks from now.

  3. I love "what's in my bag" posts/videos. They really show off personalities and your contents are a lot of fun! =)

  4. I definitely don't have a snazzy purse like you do, mine is just a simple Target bag. JUNK is in mine, haha. Buss schedules, an old makeupbag + Hand Sanetizer + Carmex Lip Gloss + XXI Smal Mirror + A funky, multi colored wallet + A Gap cardigan JIC I get chilly...that's about it.


  5. Love your Jason Wu purse! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  6. Wow. I was just about to do a Whats in my bag post this week. :D You'll know then.

    I love the Ralph Lauren case. And the flower hanger thing.

    Loved this peek. Also the bag is majorly pretty.


    New post is up :D

  7. Maybe its just the voyeur in me, but I love in-my-bag type posts! Thanks for sharing. :)

  8. That ball of lip gloss is so darn cute!
    Love that you carry around your blog goals on a scrap of paper.
    I see we both made phone improvements between bag shots...

  9. Wow you have a lot more in your bag than mine! LOL

    I just carry my wallet, sunglasses, business cards and lipgloss! haha :)

  10. First off, that bag is amazing!! I can't concentrate on anything else lol :)

  11. Cheryl, can I have your bag?:) Can I just say how I love that you have that goal note in there:)
    My first blog post ever is actually a "what's in my bag" :)

  12. great post hun,love everything u carry can i have ur bag please haha!

  13. This is so weird! I was reading through all the posts of blogs I follow on bloglovin' and I was going in order and I have just read a "what's in my bag" post and now I'm reading this one! Both asked for a link to a similar post so here it is:

  14. I'm always so intrigued by what others carry in their handbags. I always hope someone has included odd bits as well as necessities like me, scissors, flats, and a sewing kit, haha! Great post! Have a wonderful weekend.

  15. So jealous you have that Jason Wu handbag!!

  16. A fabulous bag with fabulous contents! I wish my bag was a lot cooler now. If I did this post, I'd be displaying photos of nasty gum wrappers from two years ago and grocery store receipts with notes scribbled on them. Sigh.

  17. I do love these 'Whats in your bag' posts, your bag alone is a stunning and classic piece. I like how everything seems to be colour coded in it! I keep quite a few similar times in mine

  18. wow you can fit alot in your bag! and normally just moisturiser and tissues :p

  19. very cute! loving the bag!


  20. I love your bag! It's so classic. Also, I love purse hangers! They're just so handy! Someone told me that ladies purses always get so dirty because we just place them down anywhere and they didn't really get cleaned. I felt so much better about having the hanger because ever since I've been concious about where I place my purse since then.
    I'm going to steal that goal idea from you btw!

  21. Your bag is so classy with black nd white I want a bag like that. I love Cetaphil and Chapsticks those are also in my bag.

  22. wow, some cool stuff indeed.. love your bag and content, sweets! ;)

    Happy Weekend! xo
