I carry a big Cole Haan purse that is usually filled to the brim.  Contents Include…
  • Kate Spade wallet
  • J Crew card holder (for all those random grocery store cards, etc.)
  • Trident Gum (usually empty from my kids)
  • Nivea hand lotion
  • hair clip
  • 3 pens
  • Maui Jim sunglasses
  • regular reading glasses
  • makeup bag filled with ponytail holders, nail files, band-aids, etc.
  • stacks of receipts, to-do lists, and random bits of paper
  • aquaphor
  • 2 tubes of Chanel
  • 2 Bobbi Brown lip-glosses
  • 2 MAC lipsticks
  • 1 Burt’s Bee
  • 1 Lip Fusion
  • I’m a big purse changer though and have so many purses….I usually always carry a small clutch if I’m heading out for dinner with my hubby or out to lunch with friends.
  • I just asked for a cross body purse for Xmas to help my shoulder.  These heavy leather purses are wrecking havoc on my tennis game.

  1. Cara :

    LOVE IT. My purse is eerily similar as well! I keep everything and the kitchen sink in it. I have 2 lip glosses, 2 MAC lipsticks and my Yes to Carrots Pomegranate lip butter. Can’t live without those!!! :P

    • Allison :

      Love Say Yes to Carrots too Cara!

      • Cara :

        I love their stuff too :) What else have you used? I’m equally obsessed with the Yes to Carrots hand repair cream.
