Today’s post is from a fabulous blogger named Cassie from Bake Your Day. Not only is Cassie super sweet and completely beautiful, but she posts really yummy and fresh recipes with gorgeous, bright photos. I am dying to try these Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps!!
Cassie, thank you so much for letting us snoop through your stuff!!
Hey Friends! I am excited to be giving you a sneak into my purse today. Thanks to Kristan and Shelly for having me. Neither of you ever fail at making me laugh!
I have a weird thing with purses in that I am snoopy. I have loved this series because I love knowing what other people carry around. Weird, sorry. While I think mine is a little boring, I am fascinated by others’ necessities. I’ve never been one to be too picky about my husband or my sister rummaging through my purse. I don’t keep anything in there that I should be embarrassed about, I think.
It’s just large and has lots of crevices and pockets. It’s large enough that I can stuff my DLSR in there when necessary and not have to also carry around my ugly camera bag. And see those pockets on the side? Perfect for an extra lens.
So here are my necessities:
Photo 1: Trader Joe’s shea butter hand cream; 18 tubes of Chapstick and/or lip gloss (there are at least 5 different kinds in there at once. It’s just real life. And only a small obsession.); clear nail polish for emergencies; hair ties, bobby pins and head bands.
Photo 2: nail file (which is kept in a different pocket than the nail polish, not sure why); Tide pen (AKA: lifesaver); dental floss; Oil-removing sheets (these are miracle workers. And now you know I have oily skin.)
Photo 3: Obsession #2: chewing gum. Always Orbit, and always a minty variety and a sweet variety. Here we have spearmint and Strawberry Remix.
Photo 4: The gum again; a glimpse of my turquoise wallet (thank you, Target) that is organized, always has cash, no credit cards and no receipts, because they are stored in their proper envelope in our organized filing system. Thank you, Dave Ramsey (I wish I was joking about all that.); my iPhone 4S, my lifeline to the social world, my backup camera, and my friend Siri.
Some business cards (both for the blog and for my real job); Pens (obsession #3); and notebooks, two of them to be exact. The one that is open is for grocery lists, to-do’s, recipe ideas, recipe notes and reminders that keep me sane. The red one is my journal where I document Bible studies, prayer, devotionals, etc. Both I keep with me all the time.
And for a little added sanity: some Trader Joe’s dark chocolate. Everyone needs some chocolate in their purse.
So that about sums it up. You should thank me for not showing you all of the crumbs and random pieces of paper that were in the bottom. I have always been baffled by all the crumbs that manage to make their way into my purse.
Thanks to Kristan and Shelly for having me, and thank you for reading about my somewhat boring purse. Hope to see you soon!
