What’s in that purse?

February 16, 2011

First of all, I love purses. Second of all, I love throwing stuff in my purse.

When I was a teenager, me and my best friends would go through each others purses if we were bored and see what interesting things we had in there. Now I try to keep my purse a bit more organized, but I still like having stuff in there just in case.

Everyone by now has done a “what’s in my purse” post, so I thought I would share what’s in mine. I really like Stef’s post from Keep your Guns At Home because her purse is gorgeous!!! And Rebecca The Clothes Horse did this really cute stop motion video of her purse contents a while ago that makes me wish I could make those little videos.

So this is the purse I am currently using, the Kensie Girl cross shoulder bag I picked up cross boarder shopping a while ago:

From left to right: Moleskin day planner and Papermate Biodegradable pen, Rayban glasses, Victoria’s Secret mints, Soapopular hand sanitizer, Clinique Chubby Stick lip color balm & travel hair brush,  Fossil wallet, Harry Potter the Exhibition keychain

These are the basics I use in every purse I carry. Sometimes if I have room I throw in my digital camera and a reusable bag, because you never know where the day will take you. My favorite item at the moment is my Moleskin day planner. It has each week on the left side, and a blank lined page on right where I can make notes for myself that week. I bought a bigger version for school and loved the design, so naturally I bought another one for the new year. Plus it’s super soft to touch, and has a handy ribbon book mark built in.

So what do you carry in your purse? I would love to see!!


Just a little dab of this…

I love makeup just as much as the other girl. Over the years I have experimented, and now have my morning routine down to a few simple steps. I have tried countless brands, from drug stores to high end cosmetics. These are a few of my favorites that I use every day:

From left to right: Sephora concealer, Clinique tinted moisturizer (with spf!), Tarina Tarantino mascara, Clinique eyeshadow, Cover Girl gloss balm, Paul & Joe powder (with spf!)

My favorite is the Clinique tinted moisturizer. It has a touch of color to make my pale complexion look alive, with spf to protect my skin all year round. I don’t like foundation, nor do I really need it every day so this works for me just fine. The powder from Paul & Joe also has a bit of spf in it, so combined with the moisturizer my skin is safe from the sun.

The eyeshadow is a duo of pinky-brown colors that look great with my pale complexion. I occasionally use brown eye liner as well and smudge it to create a smokey eye look to make my eyes pop. It’s just enough color without going over board.

Finally, after many years of searching I found a great fragrance that I can wear every day without going overboard. Chloe’s perfume is subtle yet feminine, and the bottle is gorgeous just sitting on my dresser.

What makeup do you really like? Hope your friday is lovely, I’m off for the weekend on a little trip. If you get a chance, check out this great website and spread some love….
