It's in the Bag Blog Crawl

A Hasty Life

I'm so excited to kick things off for Ashley's blog crawl! Ashley from A Hasty Life is hosting a purse themed blog crawl with each lady sharing what inside and what it says about the owner.

My purse:

Simple, brown, cross the chest. I like to keep my arms free at all times.

I also like a smaller purse. I never really keep a lot in there and I like things to be as organized as possible. Everything has it's own little spot.

It's a fossil and it was my Christmas gift from my hubby.

Clockwise from top.

Wallet- One of my favorite items, in my favorite color, gray. It's cute and slim and simple. It's from Kohls.

Keys- My job requires I have a lot of them and they're pretty important. Pocket knife so I can always be prepared. Clip so I can lose them as few times as possible (I tend to misplace things).

Phone- Boring. Hopefully that doesn't reflect on my personality! It's kind of old and makes phone calls. Nothing else. I love it!!

Ipod- I took a hiatus from my ipod for a long time and am trying to get back into the listening to music while I go places thing. It's filled it with Christian music.

Pens- Very important.

Gussy bag- I just love, love, love Gussy!

Lotion- I have such dry skin, especially in the winter. This is my favorite scent from B&B Works, Japanese Cherry Blossom.

Lip stuff- Gloss and lip stick (in the perfect neutral shades).

Business card pockets, made by me- One for business cards (work and shop) and the other for membership cards. Anything I can do to not lose things.

I'm not always the most prepared person in the world, so I've tried to step that up recently.

In the gussy bag, you will find.

Hand sanitizer- Things can get yucky real quick, you need to be ready for them.

Lady things- You just never know.

Chapstick- Very important in the winter.

Pony tail holder- I hardly ever put my hair up, but you never know when I'll need to do an emergency hair change.

Bobby pins- For when I can't handle my bangs any more.

Bandaids- For little ouchies.

Glasses cleaner- Vital if you wear glasses. My dirty glasses never really bother me, but they super bother my hubby.


There you have it. All that in my little, simple, slightly boring yet just perfect for me purse.

Tomorrow LeeAnn from Join the Gossip will be sharing her purse! Make sure you stop by.
