I don’t know about you, but I am always curious to know what others are carrying in their purses and bags. Call me nosy, but it’s always interesting to see what treasures someone else may carry amongst their personal belongings.
The purse I carry is the trusty Madewell Transport Tote in “English Saddle”. The leather is buttery soft and moulds against my body when I carry it. The bag is a great carry-all, which allows me to lug around just about anything, from clothes to a laptop. Check out makeuptia’s review for a more in-depth look at the bag.
1) Daily Planner
This has to be one of my most prized possessions only because it contains my life in its pages.
The binder is from an Etsy shop named Scooterbug Corner, who makes many delightful planner accessories as well. I use the inserts from Inkwell Press and find it to be the best method to organize my life.
2) Fossil Wallet
This particular wallet is about three years old now, but still looks new to this day. The leather is soft and well worn in, without looking frayed and frazzled. The chevron print is neutral and doesn’t clash with outfits, and the sizing of the wallet is convenient to fit in smaller purses as well.
3) Swell Water bottle
I’ve already expressed my love for this waterbottle in a previous blog post, but here I am again! I carry this with me everywhere and I love that the water stays cold for a long period. It’s always refreshing to take a sip of chilled water on a hot summer day.
4) iPhone Headphones
Call me boring, but no other headphones seem to stay in my ears. The Apple headphones are a must have and I can’t survive a day without them, especially at work. The headphone holding taco is a circular piece of leather with clasps that can be hooked together to prevent headphones from getting tangles in my purse. It was a gift, but something similar could be easily DIY’d!
5) Rose Salve
Another favourite that I cannot last a day without! This salve smells divine and makes me lips soft and moisturized. It can be used for not just your lips, but also knees, elbows, cuticles and face as well. I personally like to apply some on my cheekbones for a natural, dewy finish to my makeup look.
I always try to carry a snack to save me from hunger pangs. This particular day, I was feeling a bit indulgent and picked up some dark chocolate with sea salt and almonds. I usually carry a Lara bar, or some almonds for a snack.
The contents of my purse also include my makeup kit, a phone charger, a few pens, and other miscellaneous junk as well. I’d love to know what unique item you carry in your handbag! Leave a comment below sharing an unexpected item that can be found in your purse.
