My Purse

My Purse

I think you can tell a lot about a person by the contents they carry in their purse. So, I decided to take a picture of exactly what is in my purse today.

Everything is carried in that pink Kenneth Cole bag that I got on clearance at Marshalls for $35?

In the pink Fossil wallet I got at Marshalls for $9.99 I have a $50 giftcertificate to Buckle (I got this when I won the Hoobastank surfboard), $10 gift certificate to Marshalls. My Discover, AMEX and Visa cards. A miniature calculator, my frequent shopper card to a local boutique with one stamp away from 20% off! Drivers license, bank card and insurance cards. No cash :(

Attatched to the keychain is a little Epson cleaning cloth I use on my glasses, keys to the house and car, Petsmart card, a Cyclops keychain my friend Cristal bought me because I said "Cyclops is cute." when I first saw Xmen the movie and then realized without the sunglasses James Marsden wasn't as cute as Hugh Jackman so I now say "I rue the day that I said Cyclops is cute." and she bought me the keychain to make fun of me. And a keychain my sister gave me that has CC on the front and "Do you speak Cherry Creek?" on the back.

In the green Walker bag I got as a GWP from drugstore.com I have:

a sample of Chanel Blanc Universel De Chanel which is great for the bags under my eyes.
Lancome Juicy Tube in Sun Bronze
L'oreal Color Juice in Watermelon Crush
Clinique lipstick in Iced Punch
Body Shop Cranberry Lipbalm
L'occitane tinted shea butter in blackberry

In my Hello Kitty red bag that I got half off last year at the Sanrio store in Phoenix I have:

Jack Black Lip balm
Caboodles Pina Colada shake lip gloss my sister gave me.
Crabtree & Evelyn Goatmilk handtherapy
Pink Mirror from Sephora. My pink elephant arrived today and she too is curious as to what I carry in my purse so she stood on the mirror as I took a picture.

In the little red bag from Victoria's Secret that I got as a gift I have:

Urban Decay XXX Shine lip gloss in Ozone
Burt's Bees Lip Balm
Fortune Cookie slip that says: A sweet surprise awaits you and lucky numbers 5, 11, 24, 36, 42 and 24 on the back.
Very Sexy Duo with Very Sexy on one side and lip gloss on the other - that was what came with the bag.

Then thrown in the bag is:

Skinceuticals Sunblock in SPF 20.
Ginger Altoids.
Solar Shield Sunglasses that fit over my glasses.
Yodeling Fish sample soap in Juniper Sage for the times I am without soap.
Four OB tampons in a container.
Dinner by Bobo that was a gift.
Sephora atomizer that has A La Nuit in it that my Santa Ter (Aromagirl35) sent me that I've since refilled with my bottle.
Coin Purse with 8 pennies, 1 nickle, 2 dimes and a quarter.
A Revlon brush with a mirror on the back I bought for .79 at Big Lots two years ago.
A pink pen that has a bunny on the top of it.
A Keroppi notepad that my friend Myrna bought me that hasn't been written it it since last summer as I have notes to myself from then.
And my cellphone!

I usually carry around a bottle of water. Oh and my pill case that holds the Synthroid.

I find the contents of your purse to be oddly fascinating. At first I was so surprised you did this, and then I clicked on the image because I wanted to see the bigger photo! LOL. Plus I like the Kenneth Cole bag itself, what a beauty! I have a zillion questions, from "where are all the decants!" to "what do you think of Urban Decay Ozone?" I'm inspired. I think I'll empty out my purse tomorrow and stick the photo on my own blog. But I know mine is going to be incredibly boring next to yours! What a fascinating bunch'o'stuff you have there :-D
I'm rather disappointed in the contents of my purse. It makes me look like I have a lip fetish rather than the fragrance fetish I have!

I was surprised that I didn't find more samples in there myself! I love Urban Decay glosses - the color lasts for a long time, they smell/taste good and they don't leave your lips feeling gloopy.

I'll send you a Urban Decay mini compact and a small tube of Ozone.
This is so fun! I am scared to dump out my purse to see what is lurking down there in the dark. I know for sure there are drinking-straw wrappers, probably an empty Altoids gum tin or two, and a toothpick from the local Chinese buffet (the toothpicks are carved at one end, like a spindle for a stairway!) -- maybe I had better check for mold down there in that bag!
OMG Atreau! What a sweetheart you are! Wish we could go for a cup of coffee and compare our purse contents "in real time." *mwah* I adore you.
