What's in my bag?

I love when other bloggers do a "What's in my bag?" post so I decided to share my own.

I carry the Cuyana Leather tote


Theo gave it to me for our one year anniversary. I've never been more obsessed with a bag. It's the perfect bag for all occasions. I carry it daily, to work, going out, on trips. It's the perfect size to fit a ton of stuff in it without looking like you're carrying a huge tote. The fact that it has my initials on it makes it even better.

On to what's in my bag: 



Let's break it down:


Two kinds of lotion. Washing your hands nonstop working in a hospital turns your hands into sandpaper. 3 kinds of chap stick. I can't stand to have dry lips. The little vaseline pod is my favorite. Not too sanitary since you have to dip your finger in it each time, but it moisturizes the best. $20 card towards Shutterfly. Found it at work and no one claimed it for a few days so I took that as it's mean't to be! 



You may wondering what's up with all the Mary Kay? My coworker sells it and is constantly bringing in samples for us. That swirl lipstick is my newest gift and it's the best color. It's a gorgeous dark pink color. Unfortunately it was a special edition and they don't make it anymore. Doesn't that always happen when you find the perfect lipstick?!




Always gotta carry a pack of gum. I also always carry some snacks in my bag. I eat pretty often and was blessed with a loud stomach to alert everyone of my hunger. So I like to carry around something for me to snack on if I'm not able to eat for awhile. As you can see those snacks are a bit old and nasty. I'll be dumping them in the trash as soon as I finish this post! I also spy Recent Somethings blog card!




My Shutterfly card again. My wallet is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Bilifold Wallet (similar). My 2014 Brittany Fuson day planner and of course a good writing pen so I can jot down my notes. That list is for a friend's wedding shower I'm throwing in March. So far that's the food list, anything you think I should add? That is if you can make out my horrible sloppy handwriting. My checkbook is hidden up there too. I didn't want any psychos writing down my info!



 

I'm still reading Me Before You. It's a great book I'm just slack about finishing books. I always have my Kindle or a book in my bag. I guess I think if I carry it around I'll finish it faster. Hasn't worked yet. That funny black thing that looks like a remote is actually a band aid holder. Trust me it comes in handy. And you don't have to worry about your band aids getting all folded in your purse. I think it got it free from work. The plaid pouch is for tampons. You'd be surprised how many tampons you can fit in that little pouch. It's much easier to carry that to the bathroom than putting a tampon in your pocket and worry about it falling out on your way to the bathroom. Side note: I was eating at a Mexican restaurant one night with a group of people and our waiter comes over to us and has a maxi pad in his hand and asked if it belonged to anyone. We were all like ewww no. I mean who wears maxi pads anymore? Uh I guess I do because then he goes, "I think it's yours ma'am. It was sitting right next to you." It was mine. I guess I had a few in my purse in case one of those extra flow days came and a tampon just wasn't cutting it. So needless to say, that pouch is my new BFF. 



It's so funny because when I first got my Cuyana bag I remember telling Theo there was no way I was going to fill this bag up. It didn't take time at all. Luckily the bag is light so even with a ton of stuff in it, it isn't hard on your shoulders.

What do you carry in your bag?

  7. I love posts like this! My one work bag gets so heavy when I start filling it and the straps are thin and cut into my shoulder. This bag looks perfect and the straps wide enough to carry the load of all the things we seem to cram into our bags. I was spying the planner from the first picture it is so chic! :-)
