"The Shit Queen"

Excuse my language in the title, but it goes well with this post. That's what Adam calls me sometimes. He's so sweet, no? ;) He always gives me a hard time, because wherever I go, I always bring so much stuff with me. I've been like that since I was a kid. I love having my stuff with me...books, computer, journal, etc. I mean what if I never make it back home? I need to have all of that stuff with me at all times, right? Just kidding. Kind of.

Anyway, I've seen about 2 million posts like this so I figured it was about time that I do one, too. Because I know y'all are so curious about what I keep in my purse...


I recently downsized to a cross body bag. Mostly because I would spend a ridiculous amount of time digging through my giant boho-chic bags looking for this or that. I would always get frustrated and dump the contents of my purse out at the checkout counter or wherever. It just wasn't a good situation. Smaller bag = problem solved.

The Details:
- 5 lip glosses (don't judge, I like options)
- Glasses, contacts case, tweezers, eye drops, nail clippers, nail file
- Teeth whitener, hairspray, perfume, comb, bag of hair ties & bobby pins
- Phone charger
- Wallet
- Advil
- Pen
- Gum
- Hand sanitizer, oil removal wipes
and most importantly...
- Monogrammed coozie

What kind of stuff do you keep in your bag?

  2. I'm the same way with lippy! I have like 3 chapsticks and 5 lipsticks in my purse at all times. I just can't let them go!

  5. Mine looks organized but when you open that lip gloss/misc. zipper bag inside a drug store explodes! Lots of lip gloss in the SAME shade.

    I keep my wallet, my planner, my drug store zip bag, and keys in my wallet. Maybe a thing of Advil and gum - and odds n' ends (ear phones for my phone etc).

    I'm a hot mess but I try to clean it out once a week if possible!

  6. Haha! The coozie has me cracking up! I think women are just shit queens in general when it comes to purses. Mine is like a suitcase.

  7. No lie, I have my monogrammed koozie in my bag AT ALL TIMES! Whenever I switch to a little bag if we are going out and I don't want to lug my big one around, I ALWAYS put my koozie in and I ALWAYS use it! Actually, your bag contents is almost identical to mine..

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your bag!!!! so adorable!! and your wallet is so cute too!!! I'm on the hunt for a new purse myself... a big one preferably so I can carry all my crap and more! Even though I've downgraded to a small one, I still find a way to carry an even BIGGER bag in my car with all the goods that don't fit in the small one LOL

    Happy wednesday mi amor! xo, Bev

  9. LOVE the bag, and I am inspired to go clean mine out now. ;) I recently downsized for the EXACT same reason haha. Now I just carry my purse, and a big lap top bag with my computer, journals, kindle, and accounting text book in my car so it LOOKS like I am not being crazy carrying my life around in my purse, but really, i just moved it to another bag ;)

  10. Love this! I'm the same way. I carry massive amounts of crap everywhere I go. It's a little ridiculous to be honest.

  13. So I just became new to the blog world, and I stumbled across your blog, which I have been secretly stalking for about a week or so. So I love the idea of this post and have also seen it in other blogs. I think the idea is so fun since I too have a love for organizing. I think I need to downsize my purse as well! The bigger the bag the more junk I seem to think I need to jam inside. Cute purse by the way!

  18. Love this post! I can't go anywhere without hand sanitizer. I won't eat anything without using it first and this girl likes to eat. I wouldn't want to be caught somewhere that served french fries without some hand sanitizer nearby.

  21. Hahaha! I loved the din't judge comment on the many lipgloss options. Its cool to have all your important stuff with you. Isn't it cool when someone asks you if you have a bandaid and you can actually say yes??
