Just Throw It In The Bag

I am one of those people who carry obnoxiously big purses (think carry-on bag) because I have so much stuff that I carry around on a daily basis. Things get added and removed but, I have a constant group of items that I must have with me at ALL times. If one is not there, I tend to panic. Right now, I haven’t replaced my empty Burt’s Bees yet, and it’s giving me anxiety and chapped lips. Yes, I’m really this dramatic about chapstick. Here are my purse must-haves!

1. Sunglasses – Normally, you will find two or more in my bag at one time.
2. Purell – I have one on my desk too.
3. Field Notes – c/o my boss who must know I am addicted to making lists bc he’s given me two of these already.
4. Wallet – Always stuffed with shipping receipts for invitation orders. Never stuffed with money. : /
5. Hair elastics – These from Goody also double as pretty wrist wear.
6. Bobby pins – Necessary for my impromptu bun hair, and they’re always mysteriously disappearing.
7. Lipcolor – For when you leave straight from work to go to an event/dinner/etc.
8. Sharpies – I have three in my purse right now. The only thing I use to address packages.
9. Pilot V7 Rollerball pen – Doesn’t everyone have a favorite pen type?
10. Burt’s Bees – Take away my Burt’s Bees, and you’re putting your life in jeopardy!
11. Small makeup bag – Self-explanatory
12. Rollerball perfume – Jimmy Choo is one of my favorite scents.
13. Backup lip product – An option between chapstick and full-on lipcolor.
14. iPhone – Besides the computer, my phone is the most important component to keeping up this blog!

    My must haves: also a sharpie & pen, but also a lead pencil. Mac russian red lipstick, brick liner and venetian red gloss. face powder. a small first aid kit (it's a mom thing). blister blocker. too many papers to keep my life in order. a stella & dot catalog for just in case and too much other stuff to mention.

    i totally agree with the pen – i have a favorite type for sure. always have chapstick on hand, and a small makeup purse. always have my iphone and these days because of the baby i have: kleenex, a soother, elastics (to throw up my hair so he doesn't grab it) and purell.
