Hey Friends! Let’s talk about purses! I actually despise the word purse…. Just me?? Well, I might not like the word but I’m definitely a big fan of a good purse. I was on the hunt for the perfect brown leather bag for a while when I stumbled across this one (here is the same purse -but cheaper!- in a pretty pink color) in December so I added it to my Christmas list! Y’all let me just tell you it is one of my f a v o r i t e purses I’ve ever had! I always struggle with finding the right size bag and this one is just perfect! I don’t currently need a ton of room in my purse but I didn’t want something too small & this is just the best in-between size!
I like to keep the amount of items I have in my bag to a minimum. The first thing that I always always always have with me is my wallet. I’ve had this one (similar here) from Target for a few years now and it’s just my favorite. I’ve bought other wallets to try and switch things up but I always land back with this one.
I put together this ’emergency kit’ a couple of years ago and it just sticks in my purse like glue. Now, it’s not technically a real emergency kit hah! All it is, is a little travel size makeup bag filled with things that might come in handy. Things like, hair ties, bobby pins, chapstick, lipstick, bandaids, cash, roller perfume, lotion, feminine products, a mini hand sanitizer, brush & deodorant. Phew, that thing held a lot more than I thought! It does come in handy though let me tell ya that! Usually not for me, but someone always seems to need something so it’s good to be prepared!
There’s two pockets on the inside of this purse and in one goes my headphones and a pack of gum. Is anyone else crazy over the Mint Chocolate Chip gum by Extra?? Yeah, it’s my all time favorite. Why chew regular gum when you can pretend you’re eating dessert too? Was that weird? A little. The other pocket is where I throw my keys. If my keys aren’t in a specific spot, my heart always skips a beat (not in a good ‘in love’ way) when I have to dig through my purse in the parking lot to find them. So basically, my keys have to have a home.
Snacks. Snacks are an essential part of my life. I carry granola bars with me pretty much everywhere I go. I just don’t want to be hungry okay?? And trust me you don’t want me to be hungry either. Yikes. If you have any purse snack suggestions lemme know. A girl’s gotta eat. I also usually toss my favorite sunglasses in my bag on top of everything else!
So that’s my purse inside & out! I’d love for you to let me know what your number one essential is that you have to have with you at all times. I hope y’all have a wonderful week!
