What's In My Purse?

It's been a while since I've written a Just Jenn post (random posts that tell you a little more about me and my family), and today I thought I'd revisit something I haven't shared in almost 5 years! Because you're all dying to know what's in my bag. ;)

Things have changed quite a bit since my last post in 2013, which you can see here. But a few things haven't changed at all! So as of right's what's in my purse!

What's In My Purse?

I usually carry this black crossbody from Kate Spade (thought I sometimes switch it one of two other Kate favorite!) I try to keep the contents light, but I usually end up with a few old grocery lists, anyway!

Inside is....

+ My wallet. I love the bigger zip-around wallet, but I usually use the smaller pink one because it fits my little beige crossbody - makes swapping purses easier. I switch it up sometimes, though!

+ This is a medium zip pouch from Gussy Sews that I keep my sunglasses in. So cute, right? It's a different one than my last post, but keeping this in my purse hasn't changed in 5 years!! My sunglasses are from Target.

+ Lavender sachet. I made this little cutie with some lilac fabric and filled it with dried lavender. My friends and I made a bunch of these as dream pillows on craft night once, and I made this one to fit the inside pockets in my purse perfectly. It makes the whole thing smell like lavender which is like, a dream come true.

+ Necessities: pens, chapsticks, hair ties. I am neurotic, and always have two of each in case I misplace one. Not even joking lol (The pens are from Matilda Jane!)

+ Hand sanitizer & lotion. I cannot function without these on a daily basis. I'm constantly cleaning my hands this time of year, and I hate the way my hands feel after I wash them (#weirdfactsaboutme) so I always lotion them immediately after washing. (I told you I was neurotic! lol)

+ A nail file, because I hate having a chipped nail and being caught without one!

+ A Made Good bar just in case (they're gluten + dairy free and made with veggies!) and gum. This kind is my fav.

+ Crystals, because I'm woo-woo like that. I usually have smaller ones with me, but almost always selenite...I'm always drawn to selenite! The one on the left is apophyllite and I love it not only for its beauty, but its properties. It enhances sensitivity and intuition, which are things I really value!

+ Stacks of business cards. You never know!

+ And the funniest thing: bookmarks. Yes, I realize one of them is a Blockbuster card from 100 years ago and the other is covered in laser cats, but I'm usually reading 2-3 books at a time and I will use anything as a bookmark. Sometimes when I'm returning library books I notice that my bookmark is still in them, so I'll stash them in my purse. They tend to collect there, lol.

+ When I leave the house, my phone and keys join in, of course. I have way, WAY too many discount card thingys on my keys. Many of them are from stores in Charlotte that we don't even have here!!

I might also have a Home Goods receipt of some kind in there at all times. ;)

Sooo let's see it! What's in your bag??
