What's in My Bag - Purse Edition

Although this isn't beauty related, I decided to do this post anyway. I personally love the What's in My Bag tag. I just like seeing what people carry around with them and why they carry it. Some people carry around some great and helpful things, which makes me want to carry them around with me too. So I decided why not show everyone what I carry around in my purse!
So here is an over view of my purse and everything in it.As you can see from the picture, I carry a ton of lip products


I bought this purse from H&M. It's just a basic black purse (similar). This bag can be worn just on your shoulder or across your body. The strap for the cross body style can be removed. It has two "cellphone" pockets and a zippered pocket on the inside. The only downfall to this purse is it has no pockets on the outside. I also have a Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizer in the scent Market Peach.


I found this wallet (similar) at Winners for a great price! It holds all my cards, money and change. It is also very thin even with it packed full, making it perfect for those days where you just have to quickly run out and don't want to bring your whole purse.


I have the Kate Spade Aviators. I actually got them about two years ago and I absolutely love them. Since I can't see things at a distance, these do have prescription lenses. I always keep these in my purse because starring at the sun without sunglasses on hurts and I don't want to be squinting.


The travel size pack of Kleenex is perfect for just about everything. Kleenex is not only good for when you have a cold but it is also a great cloth for spills. I recently just added this to my purse and it has been a great addition since my allergies have started.


This is pretty self explanatory because bad hair days happen and rain happens. It's there to clip my hair up when it just won't cooperate.

Lip Products

Okay, no one needs this many lip products in their purse. I usually always keep a lip balm (or two), right now it's EOS in sweet mint and Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in the color Pink Me Up. The others are all lip products that I've put on in the morning and threw them in my purse to reapply as the day wears on and I just haven't taken them out (oops!). I have a full sized Tarte LipSurgence in the color Charmed (similar), a sample Tarte LipSurgence in the color Elite, a sample of Hourglass Extreme Sheen lip gloss in Child, a Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Peony (which I haven't even worn yet!!) and a Revlon ColorBurst Balm stain in the color 001 Honey.

Sucker and Pen

I always carry a pen in my purse because you never know when you will need to write something down and I have a sucker, which came with a bill at a restaurant, because I like to keep something sweet in case I'm hungry and have to wait to eat. I also keep a little snack in my purse so when my boyfriend gets impatience when I'm shopping for clothes/makeup he has something to snack on.

'OMG I Wish I Had A.." Kit

I first read about this on CollegePrepster's blog and I thought this was an amazing idea. Basically you put everything in a pouch (mine is a cosmetic bag from Target) that you wish you would have when you are out and about. Everyone's kit is different but this is what I keep in mine;
- Tide to Go because spills/stains happen
- Portable iPhone charger...#ios7problems (similar)
- Hair elastic + a ton of bobby pins because bad hair days happen
- Sewing kit because you never know when you may pop a button and safety pins are handy
- USB drive.... #college student... and school computers can never save documents properly
- A unopen Burts Bees Chapstick because you can never have too much chapstick
- A Collection of Mints all from restaurants because free mints + fresh breathe is a great combo
- Wet Wipes because sticky/messy hands are the worst.
- Regular Purell because some people don't like scented hand sanitizer
- Tylenol because I always get headaches
- Band aids, pretty self explanatory
- A Compact Mirror for beauty and hair fixes.
- Hand Lotion because dry, cracked, and rough hands are the worst.

That is everything I carry in my purse on a day to day basis Do you carry anything similar or anything different? Do you carry as many lip products as I do?

Stay beautiful
