The Darling Nomadess: What's in My Bag?

Sunday, January 5, 2014

What's in My Bag?

Back in high school I used to carry around a huge purse that had everything and the kitchen sink carefully placed inside. Seriously, that bag was huge. I once snuck a full size pizza into a movie theater with that bag and my friends didn't even know until I pulled it out and offered them a slice. I can't make this stuff up, Darlings. 

Anyways, nowadays I carry items that are more appropriate, with or without the dough, if you know what I mean. Here's what I carry in my purse on a normal day! 


Isn't is so great that this is just how my stuff rearranged itself when it fell out of my purse when it tipped over? 

I realized through the creation of this post that I carry around a lot of notebooks. The polka dot notebook is actually my editorial calendar shown in my first vlog. The little blue notebook holds my daily to-do lists and my A-List Greek notebook (I just got it since I am a campus rep!) holds any ideas that come to mind for my blog, work, promotion ideas, etc. I also always have my planner with me, but I haven't chosen one for 2014 yet! 

Victoria's Secret's Pink perfume is one of my favorites and I try to always have a perfume with me. I'm totally obsessive with the way I smell and constantly ask my friends, "Do I smell bad?" Annoying, I'm sure.

The VerMints Tin doesn't actually have mints in it. It holds my papaya enzyme supplements. As you might know, I try to be as organic as possible when it comes to what I put into my body, including medicines and vitamins. Papaya is a digestive enzyme and well...food never seems to settle well with me and that's all I'm going to say about that issue. Papaya is essentially a much healthier version of Tums and I'm pretty sure it has magical properties...

Other stuff I carry: sunglasses, manicure kit (the sparkly case next to the perfume), keys, pens, Bath & Body Works sanitizer. 

What do you carry in your bag, Darling?


With Love,
Ashliegh

  54. Thanks for the giveaway! I normally change up the items in my bag on a daily basis, but I am ALWAYS carrying a shade of MAC lipstick.

  55. My bag is always one of two things:
    1. Too full with things that I don't need
    2. Too empty and missing something I need
    I just can't win this battle! lol
