What's in My Bag

I don't believe I've ever done a "What's in My Bag" post before, but I just got a new purse, and I think it deserves such a post.  I recently fell in total love with a Rusty Cuts backpack purse, and then I justified buying it because it "freed my hands" for shopping with baby.  Sometimes baby is the perfect excuse.  ;))

(Click to Enlarge)

1.  Wallet-- That one's pretty obvious.
2.  Gum-- I always try to carry gum with me.  There's nothing worse than coffee breath!
3.  Business Cards-- I keep a stack of business cards in this 
little pouch for all of those networking opportunities.
4.  Phone-- Also a no-brainer.
5.  Kid's chopsticks-- We eat A LOT of Asian food and Hope has a really hard time with the chopsticks, so we got these kid friendly chopsticks and now everything's grand!
6.  Tattoo Goo-- I always keep a little tin of this on me.  It's so great for 
brightening up the ol' elbow hearts whenever I need it.
7.  Lip Gloss-- Lip gloss or chapstick is always a must for me.  I never leave home without one of the two.
8.  Vintage Scarf-- Keeping a scarf in your purse for those not-so-great hairdays, or the extra windy ones is a must for me!
9.  Glasses-- I have stopped wearing contacts for the time being, so I carry around glasses everywhere I go.
10.  Mirror-- A mirror is a necessity.  Also, it's a great crying baby distraction.  ;)
11.  Coin Purse-- I actually only carry bobbypins in this little pouch.  They are so handy to have, and get lost if they just float around in a purse.


I hope you enjoyed my first "What's in My Bag" post!  I'm a little curious, if you could only carry one thing in your purse, what is your most important item (excluding wallet & phone)?
xoxo Katie

  7. What an adorable little bag! I always carry a mirror in my purse as well. It makes for an easy teeth-checkin device.

  8. I used to always carry a spoon with me, which has proven to be handy from time to time.

  13. Dude that's a super cute bag. But if I only had to carry one thing? (Is there such a thing with girls purses?) It would be my sketchbook. I die, I just feel naked without my sketchbook so I can draw people when I'm bored in line.

  15. Hooray for cute backpacks! I never leave without some kind of lip balm either. Can't handle it! :)

  16. love the purse (or bag from my part of the world, england) its very close between lipgloss and notebook, but i think notebook would win. everything gets lost amongst my twin baby girls stuff right now though!

  18. So cute! I love "What's in My Bag" posts! My most important thing besides wallet and phone would have to be (a tie between) tissues and lip balm - I can't do without them.

  19. I'm kind of torn between lip balm and gum being total necessities. I've become pretty much addicted to lip balm since I discovered Flourish Bath & Body on Etsy.

  22. I love seeing what you carry : )

    I always always always have sunglasses. The sun seems to be brighter here in SoCal (at least brighter than my hometown of New Orleans).

    here's my 'can't-leave-home-without-it' list:

  23. Lotion! I absolutely despise having dry hands! So i must apply lotion after i wash my hands... every time.

    I adore your new purse and especially your dress!

  24. Such good things to keep with you!

    Diana- the only reason my purse is organized is because it's small! I can't carry a big purse anymore because it becomes the family purse!

  25. oohh lovely bag! but so you have to carry this backpack plus another bag for all of babys stuff??

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your bag is SO cute, Katie!

    I ALWAYS have a giant scarf in my bag, because I tend to get chilly easily. It could seriously double as a small blanket. ;)

  29. So that's the usual contents of a woman's bag, huh? Seems like make-up is a staple item, hehe. Have you ever wondered what's in a guy's bag? Well, it's about time that someone blogged about it. Check it out! Thanks. =)
