What's in my bag? - Personal//Lifestyle

I have a Kim Rogers leather cross body bag - $10.00 (normally $30.00 at Belks-I love it even more that I got it on clearance!)
  1. Yes, I have a pink case on my little basic "Pantech Verse" phone.  What other color would I get?? :) --link
  2. Cheap sunglasses bought at the beach-  a girl can't leave home without these, you know...especially, if she is going to be driving in bad lighting that day with her contacts in.  Yikes. Can someone spell D.I.S.A.S.T.E.R.?
  3. A couple of good writing pens- a girl has to have one of these at all times, especially if she is a list maker or writer.
  4. IPod touch 4th generation -This basically NEVER ever leaves my sight and is always in my bag or pocket.  I'm kind of addicted to Instagram, if you couldn't tell. ;)
  5. Brown floral wallet—Andrew gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. It's the perfect size! 
  6. A couple of necessary hair clips, ponytail holders, and bobby pins- always good to have with you if you're having a bad hair day. 
  7. My business cards and a couple of encouraging Bible verses/ quotes that my mom wrote out a long time ago on note cards- People are always asking for my site and Etsy shop link, so I finally just stuck a few cards in my bag so I'm always prepared to hand them one. The note cards can be super encouraging to have on hand if I'm having a bad day or I want to encourage someone else with a verse. 
  8.  My keys--you know, just in case I need to get back into the house or something?  I'm prepared. :)
  9. Trident Gum, Tropical Twist--definitely my favorite gum now, thanks to my friend introducing it to me last year. {link}
  10. Burt's Bee's lip balm and "Warm Vanilla Sugar" hand sanitizer by Bath and Body Works-- always good to keep on hand, especially throughout the winter months. 
This was just a fun post that I've seen posted on several of the blogs I read, so I figured I might as well "hop on the bandwagon" and do my own post.  I hope you all enjoyed it!

So, what are some of the items that you like to keep on hand at all times?  I would love to hear!


  1. What a fun post, Emily! Thank you for giving us the chance to "look inside" your bag!
    Honestly, I carry around *way* too much. My eye always goes for the larger bags, so that I can fit anything and everything in it! :)
    I hope you're doing well!

    Your Sister In Christ,

  2. I love seeing what others keep in their purses. :) You have some cute stuff girl! I've actually wanted to do a post about what I keep in my purse.
    Some things I always have with me would be my phone, pens (which i also agree..what is a writer without writing pens?;)) , my wallet, chapstick/lipgloss and lotion. :)

  3. Great post, Emily! Your bag is very cute!

  4. i keep duct tape in my purse. yeah, i'm kinda strange. but! it did come in handy the other night :) i enjoyed this emily! xo

  6. I love, love, love your purse and wallet!!! This post was so fun! I will have to do one at some point. You'll probably laugh when I tell you that the other day i had eggs in my purse. 2 dozen to be exact. We had to deliver some to a friend downtown. I couldn't help but smile when I thought about the contents of my purse. :).

  7. I love this post Emily! I've been meaning to do one of these but... you know :)

    I love "Paris Amour" from BBW. It smell delish!

  11. Oh that’s great; you have all the necessary items inside your bag. I just keen to ask, how many hand bags with you?

  12. Let's see...I have an assortment of things in mine: sun glasses, wallet, checkbook, Tylenol, Etsy business cards, pens, scissors, toothpicks, hand sanitizer, tracts, notepads, permanent marker, small mirror, work keys and badge, safety pins and paperclips--I like to be prepared wherever I am which probably means I should add a needle and thread in there :-)
