Groovy, you say. A post on a Saturday. How unexpected.
I only come out of my weekend shell to write a post for a very special topic or a very special person. Today, I’m dubbing Roo of Nice Girl Notes that “very special person.”
She wrote my favorite kind of post today. The kind where it’s sort of fun and fluffy – yet you can’t turn away. No matter how hard you try. And here’s why.
We’re all revealing the contents of our bag. (and by bag, I mean purse, handbag, pocketbook but those all sound like old lady terms to me)
And why might we be letting the world peer into our bags? Because for most women, it holds all of their most valuable possessions. And it tells you a little something about them. You’ll see what I mean.
Behold, Fadra’s bag:
I have to start with my fabulous bag from The Sak. If you don’t know The Sak, then you don’t know jack. Okay. That was corny but it rhymed. I do actually like their purses but only if I can get a good deal on them from TJMaxx (which I do).
What’s in my wallet? Wouldn’t you like to know? A few plastic apparati for shopping. A driver’s license set to expire. And no cash. But it’s a lovely specimen from Brighton that I purchased from their outlet store (of course).
Hand sanitizer. The older I get, the more germophobic I get. Hand lotion, which I always forget to use (hence my dry hands). And eye drops for contacts, which I always forget to use (hence my dry eyes).
You can always find crumpled up receipts in my purse. No biggie. But it troubles me that these receipts are from McDonald’s, Arby’s, Starbucks, Salsa’s, and The Noodle Shop. Apparently, I like to eat. A lot.
What you see above are leftovers from BlogHer. A stub from my McDonald’s coupon for a free Angus Steak Wrap. And Starbucks card that may or may not have $5 on it (we’ll definitely find out on Sunday).
You know all those “extra” credit cards or library cards or frequent shopper cards that you don’t use often enough to keep in your wallet but still need them in your purse? Yeah, that’s what these are. But what a nice surprise to find 3 cards peeking out from Dutch Being Me, The Grasshoppa, and Ted Rubin.
I’m currently at the Type A Mom blogging conference. So my purse is littered with marketing material and a bunch of business cards.
A mirror. A toothpick. A mini tape measure. Starbucks Song of the Week card. A pen my husband made me. And some Advil.
I’m known far and wide for my lip supplies. Unfortunately, this post came on an off day for me and my supplies are light. My standard every day Lancome lipstick (shade: Visionary), Mary Kay lipstick (pinkish), L’Oreal lipliner, Burt’s Bees lip balm, Burt’s Bees Shimmer stick 1, and Burt’s Bees Shimmer stick 2 (two different shades). I’m not as obsessed with chapstick as some people I know but I do like to keep my lips covered. It’s my trademark. Sort of.
And that concludes your tour of my purse. Thank you for stopping by and we hope to see you back at my purse again.
