What's In Your Bag - a link up!

Happy Friday, and welcome to the first "What's In Your Bag" link up!  I don't know about you but I'm super nosy curious and love to peek inside people's lives. (I may have been known to check in someone's medicine cabinet a time or two....)

Anyways, below are some pictures of what's inside my bag!

The bag itself - Marc Jacobs Venetia bag in turquoise (no longer available)  It was one of my biggest purchases during my time at Nordstrom. No kids + no mortgage = expensive bag. Ha!! This poor bag has been so used and abused that it won't even sit up straight anymore. Oh well, I still love it!

The randomness that my bag has to lug around everyday:

Wanna take a closer look?

My makeup bag carries so much stuff that I usually don't use. Tons of lip glosses, cuticle oil, band-aids, powder, the nail polishes I used for my last pedicure - Candy Shop by Deborah Lippmann and Teddy Girl by Butter London (c/o)   There is truly a ridiculous amount of stuff in my makeup bag, but that's a whole other post....

My coupon bag is actually the medium zip pouch by Gussy Sews (c/o) and I love it so much!! If I'm just running a quick errand I'll throw my license, debit card and keys in it and use it as a little clutch so I don't have to use my big, old purse! Psst! Want a discount for Gussy's entire shop?? Use code WIMB10 for 10% off, good through July 31.

Other essentials:

  • My wallet. Hubby surprised me with it for Christmas!!

  • (More) bandaids. We go through bandaids like water. There's always an invisible boo-boo in need of one.

  • My phone. It's pretty much my life line. I'm loving my new, neon summer case!

Business cards and their cute holder, made by my sweet friend, Nicole of Olive Blue!

Three pairs of sunglasses. The biggest ones are actually Leila's. All three of us girls have super sensitive eyes and are wearing sunglasses anytime we're outdoors.

All of it!

Ok, you got to peek into my bag, now I want to peek inside yours!! Go ahead and link up!! Linky will stay open until next Thursday evening!

Thank you for your kind words & for visiting my little blog. The tin with paper & crayons has gotten me through some long waits at the doctor and at restaurants.

I love all the link parties you put together. They are always fun and satisfy my nosy tendencies.

Thanks, Heather.
