What's in my Purse?

Well, long time, no talk! Life has been so hectic for me lately. I have been putting most of my time into my school work, my personal life and organizing my Summer plans (Hoping for an internship this Summer, fingers crossed!) But anyways I thought it would be nice to do a blog post on my purse and what exactly I carry in it on a day to day basis! 

I feel like what a girl keeps in her purse says a lot about their personality. I usually clean out my purse once a week or sometimes once every other week, it just depends on how busy I am. I normally am a very organized and clean person. There is truly nothing I hate more than clutter and junk taking up space in my life.

So for this blog post I will show you exactly what I keep in my purse and how I manage to keep everything organized and clutter free!

So let me start off my saying I am not a professional organizer in any way but I do enjoy organizing my life as much as I can. So I hope you take my tips and tricks with a grain of salt and put your own little twist on them!

The purse I carry around with me on a day to day basis is my Longchamp "Les Pliage" Large Tote in the color Beige. I've had this bag for a few years and I absolutely love it! It's a great multifunctional bag. During the school year I use it to keep my books and things in. Then during the Summer months I use it as a beach tote! 

The tote retails for $178 at the Longchamp store and on their website. I bought mine at the actual Longchamp store in the King of Prussia Mall (Great customer service!) for the full asking price. I somewhat regret paying that much for this bag since all it really is is a rubbery plastic material on the inside but the bag is made really well. Since then I have purchased a few more in all sorts of colors. I have one in red, navy blue, and black! They are also all the large size but for these I did not pay full price I bought them at a local upscale consignment shop near my house. 

As for what's inside....

1. Keys and My Student ID-- I have my keys and my student ID on a Vera Bradley lanyard I bought a few years ago. As for the key chains on it... one is from Lilly Pulitzer, the little boot is from L.L. Bean and the key fob is from an Etsy shop! (it's in the You Gotta Regatta Print!)

2.  Cell Phone and Apple Headphones-- I have the iPhone 6 in the Gold version and I love it! My case is from Lilly Pulitzer and it' in the "Let's Cha Cha" print.

3. Wallet-- I bought this wallet at Target about a year ago after my other wallet broke. But I love this wallet! It zips around and the color is so pretty I couldn't pass it up.

4. Hand Food by Soap and Glory-- I love this hand cream! It smells like marshmallows and keeps my hands so soft without feeling greasy or heavy! You can buy it at Sephora for $5!

5. Lip Products!-- I have one MAC lipstick in my purse and it is in my favorite lip color of all time (Creme Cup). I am near to obsessed with it and I am due for a new one! As for the other lip products, I have two NYX glosses, one is in "Tiramisu" (Butter Gloss) and the other is in "Beige" (Mega Shine Gloss). I also have a Smashbox lip gloss duo in "Peepshow" and a Burt's Bees lip balm in Dark Chocolate and Blueberry!  

6. Polar T4 Watch-- This watch is my life. I work out almost everyday so this watch is my best friend. It tells me my heart-rate, calories burned, my pace, etc. It is a great little gadget! It's super lightweight and it comes in all sorts of colors. I bought mine on Amazon for around $50!

7. iPhone 6 Armband-- The day I bought my iPhone 6, I also placed an order on Amazon for a new armband. I always use armbands when I workout because I love listening to music! It gets me motivated and I don't focus on working out. I love this armband! Not only was it affordable but it is also fits my arm really nicely.  

8. Lilly Pulitzer Koozie-- I always carry a koozie with me! I normally use koozies for water bottles or canned beverages. I usually keep one in my backpack when I'm at school too, just in case I buy a water bottle when I'm on campus and don't want water to get on my schoolwork.

9. Eyeglasses-- I love my eyeglasses! Mine are from Kate Spade and they are adorable! She has so many designs to choose from and the case is so pretty.

10. Lilly Pulitzer Wristlet-- Everyone needs a wristlet. I keep one in my purse just in case I don't feel like carry my purse into a store with me. I just throw my driver license and my credit card in it and I'm ready to go!

11. Kashi Bar-- I plan on doing a healthy snacks blog post at some point in time because I have a lot of healthy recipes and tips to share with you all. But I always keep a Kashi Bar on me at all times. They have so many different flavors to choose from and they always keep me full for a long period time.

12. Sweetarts-- What can I say?...... They are delicious! :)

13. Gum-- Trident White. Best. Gum. Hands down! 

14. Makeup Bag-- Everyone needs a small cosmetic bag to keep in their purse filled with their essentials. I keep a bunch of random things in mine! Powder compact, floss sticks, tampons, band-aids, tissues, etc. 

15. Sunglasses and Croakies-- My sunglasses are from T.J. Maxx which is where I buy most of my sunglasses and my croakies are from Lilly Pulitzer! They are great if you don't feel like keeping your glasses on your head!
