So, I finally decided to do a post about “What’s In My Purse?”, since a lot of people are curious to know. I think you can tell a lot about a woman by what she carries in her purse. A lady’s purse is her sanctuary. It’s a place where all of her knickknacks and daily deeds are stored away from the world. Tell you the truth, I don’t normally change my purses often. Once I buy a new purse, I like to enjoy it for at least few months. One of my daily essentials is always having my purse with me no matter where I go. I personally like oversize purses. I’m one of those women who likes to put a lot of things in her purse, but I tend to stay organized. I try to clean it at least once a week. I literally take everything out, wipe it with a clean towel and let it hang open for a few hours. It’s something that I’ve been doing for a long time now.
If you read my blog post “This Week’s Favorites #1”, then you already know that my husband bought me two Dana Buckman purses on Valentines Day. I’m obsessed with both of them, but the one that I’ve been carrying is yellow and white color. Perfect for spring. It’s a very happy color, lots of room and pockets. I’ve had a lot of compliments on it. So now, let’s take a peek of what’s inside.
Wallet – My oldest daughter bought this for me as a present last spring. I’m so picky about the look or the color of my wallets, that I typically always buy it myself. But, this was a winner! I can match it with so many different color of purses and it reminds of tropics.
Hair Brush – I feel like every woman should carry a hair brush, because you never know when you’ll need it.
Perfume – I have a lot to choose from. My favorite right now is Pleasures by Estee Lauder. It smells clean and fresh. It’s like being in a spring garden of flowers early in the day.
Headphones – I always like to listen to the music, especially when I exercise. So, carrying headphones in my purse is a must.
EOS Lip Balm – My favorite lip balm right now. The smell is light and refreshing, sweet but unobtrusive vaguely tropical fruit flavor and not in the slightest overwhelming.
Sunglasses – A must living in Florida, since it’s always sunny here.
Estee Lauder Clear Difference Complexion Perfecting BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35 and a Foundation Brush – I carry both just in case if I need to refresh my makeup, especially on hot days. I love that it has SPF protection.
Lip Gloss – I might not always wear a lipstick, but I do lip gloss. Right now, I’m loving Estee Lauder Vinyl Rose color. It’s a rather muted pink in tube and even when swathed on my arm. A healthy, natural pinkish toned lip that doesn’t make me look washed out, yet offers a little color to my complexion. There isn’t any shimmer, but there is a high lacquered shine.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream – I have to keep my hands moisturized at all times to keep them young. I love this hand cream. It has been great at keeping my hands hydrated this winter.
365 Blog Topic Ideas – A book I’ve been carrying with me since I bought it. It has amazing blog topic ideas. This book is great for those starting out who want ideas on how to get their feet into the blogging world or for bloggers who are already established who have either hit a creative wall or want to branch out with their writing topics. You can purchase it on Amazon.
