When Shelly and I decided to do a “What’s In Your…” feature on our new blog, I immediately knew I wanted to contact Jessica from How Sweet It Is.
Not only is she a doll (seriously one of the nicest people you’ll ever talk to), but she’s one of the hardest working bloggers out there and has exceptional taste. I KNEW she’d have some really great stuff in her bag.
Plus lets face it–I’m super nosy (like…don’t ever friend me on Facebook unless you’re prepared for me to comb through years worth of your photos), and a borderline stalker of bloggers I love, so this was a pretty good excuse for me to get more info on Jessica.
I realize that sounded creepy. I’ll shut up now.
Hi friends! I’m Jessica from How Sweet It Is and today I’m here to show you what a massive mess my purse is. Well, scratch that. I actually cleaned it out just a leeeetle bit so I could show you it’s contents minus the piles of crumbs, dust, four-month old receipts and twelve kinds of lip gloss (all relatively the same shade).
There is something so fascinating about seeing what is hiding in someone else’s bag, right? Even if you aren’t a nosy person in general, it makes us all feel a little bit better (or worse?) to see the random half-eaten snacks and hair brush fur balls (or perfectly pristine products?) that we hide in the comforts of our own purse. So here we go!
Starting clockwise, I have a pen. This is funny, considering every single time I need a pen I can never find it in my purse. I remember wanting to snatch my mom’s *good* pen from her purse as a young child so I could doodle on the church bulletin when I should have been listening to the gospel, and she would have an absolute cow. Now I know why – she could never find her pens either!
Next comes my wallet, which houses (too many) credit cards, my license, no cash whatsoever, and like ten pennies. There are also a handful of coupons in there while I inevitably forget about as I pay full price for my stash at Bath and Body Works. Fail.
I’ve got my cell phone, some Tokyo Milk Let Them Eat Cake Lotion (yes, I want to lick my skin after wearing it), my iPod touch, which is on it’s last leg and always housing a dead battery since I forgot to charge it (making an excellent excuse for skipping workouts, FYI), and a Trader Joe’s FiberFul. FiberFul’s are like fruit roll-ups for grown ups and are a great snack when you’re in a pinch.
Next up, I have some makeup removing face wipes (love!), and a few different lip moisturizers which I obsessively swipe on my lips every 40 seconds. I have the Tokyo Milk Let Them Eat Cake perfume – it’s the perfect size for a purse and I love it for after the gym or one of those days when I forget (read: refuse out of laziness) to shower then run into a pretty high school friend or an ex-boyfriend.
I always, always have a mess of receipts, business cards, movie tickets and shopping lists smashed into my bag. Please tell me you do too? I try to remove them once a week but then I usually find a shopping list from December 2010. It happens. I have sunglasses for my super-sensitive eyes (I’m the one who wears them when it’s raining) and a handful of MAC Dazzleglass lip glosses which are my favorite (Rags to Riches is my go-to color). In my little Advil bottle I carry a few headache-reducing medicines and last-minute allergy pills like Benadryl in case of emergencies.
That’s it – nothing too exciting, controversial or steal-worthy. Now spill it: what’s in your bag?
