In alternate reality where I posses charm, charisma, and pore-less skin, I would have a YouTube channel, but since I don’t, I thought I’d partake in every beauty guru’s most updated tag and share my own “What’s in My Bag?” on the blog today! I’ve done YouTube related posts before (ex: Story Time, and How I Did My Makeup In High School), but I thought I’d treat you all like the TSA today, dump out my bag, and discuss it’s contents! My go-to purse is basically a giant tote bag courtesy of Vera Bradley, but last year I was in the market for a large purse that could fit everything I needed for work, and VB products last for-freaking-ever, so I knew this would be perfect! Also, for the sake of “Well, obviously”, I’ve removed items like wallet and pads/tampons from the list, because, well, obviously. Let’s take a look!
I truly could not be more Type A if I tried. In my own defense though, this organizer makes searching through my purse so much simpler! It has pockets, and zippers, AND it has polka dots. It fits right in the center of my purse, and conveniently holds all of my necessities…so it’s basically a purse inside a purse.
You never know when you’ll find yourself in a situation that requires you to pretend that you’re busy so you can avoid speaking to people!
A great way to look like you have it all together, even if you did eat chips over the sink for dinner last night.
The most “Rory Gilmore” thing about me, and hopefully the only quality that we share.
Pumpkin spice scented hand sanitizer
I feel like this says two things about me.
- I love fall.
- I haven’t cleaned my hands enough since September to warrant a purchase of a more seasonably appropriate scent.
I promise it’s #1!
Straw wrappers and crumpled receipts
I’ll throw it away eventually! *cut to the year 2040 and I still have proof of this gas station purchase of a bottle of Smart Water*
So here is a fun Mallory fact to know and share: I am never without chapstick, and if I am, I’m probably panicking about it. Every purse, gym bag, car (I have 1, why am I talking like I have a MTV Crib’s style garage?), and backups at my parent’s house are always in stock. I’m not sure if this is a “quirk” or something that makes me sound certifiably insane, but I hate the feeling of dry, cracked lips!
What are your purse necessities?
