What's in my bag?




I'm going to be honest. I usually have wayyyy more stuff in my bag, like crumpled receipts, gum wrappers, and business cards from people I can't remember meeting. At any given point I have a pair of flats in my bag, a bottle of water, a book, a lamp, small child...you name it, I've got it. But the beauty of documenting something like this is that you have a chance to clean it out and look less like a Mary Poppins/hoarder hybrid. So, I should probably call this... 

What's in my bag after I clean out all of the other junk:
North/South tote - c/o Echo
Ray-Bans (they hold my glasses or my sunglasses, whichever ones are not currently on my head)
keys with mini sewing machine keychain from Juicy Couture
Rory Beca  for Power Support USA iphone case
old as dirt iPod nano because I don't replace electronics unless they break
vintage, hand painted makeup case (that's her Madgesty)
MAC Love Forever! pro longwear lip creme
Laura Mercier undereye concealer
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Urban Decay blush brush
MAC concealer
Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner
Ricola cough drops
magical wallet thingy from J Crew
dollar bills, because you never know when you might want to pop into Flashdancers, am I right? (also, yes, I'm using a bobby pin as a money clip)
Hello Kitty Bandaids with matching bandaid case
hair ties
Advil

p.s. Don't forget to enter Echo's "What's in your bag?" contest to win a handbag!

  1. I always have so much junk in my bag.
    How do guys get by without having to carry all their stuff with them?

  2. And I thought I was the only who routinely carried around cough drops! Hope you enjoyed the Refused show - it was a perfectly awesome performance I thought.

  13. If that's a 1st generation nano, there's a recall going on because they have the possibility of exploding. They will send you a new one that won't explode.

  14. I love posts like this! I'm stealing that dollar bill idea. My thing is quarters because I'm cursed with not being able to pass a candy quarter machine without getting some. And you didn't list the blush you have in the pic. Am I wrong? Top right? Smashbox? K love ya!


    happy follower,

  21. From a nerdy fashion loving Kiko Lynn fan, I couldn't help but notice you have the same iPod I had, which was recently recalled by Apple due to a battery malfunction. If you go to: http://www.apple.com/support/ipodnano_replacement/ They will send you a new one.

  25. Aw I have that same old Nano...and even after reading the above comments about it being recalled I'm still hesitant to send it back. I'm very attached. :/

  32. I love your iphone case! I just bought a cheap polka dotted case (so cheap in fact that it doesn't fit in my car charger and I can't use the flash).

  34. I love these posts. Pulling everything out of my bag made me realize that I really should clean it out more often. Yikes.

  38. I'm the same way, especially on the business card front. The worst is if you exchanged business cards and they text you or something and you're just completely clueless on who they are.
