Southern Girl Swap: {What's in YOUR bag?!}

Good morning readers!  Today is our third Southern Girl Blog Hop!  I'm guest posting today over at Razorback Britt!  Check it out to see a few of my favorite things in my makeup bag! 

Today you're in for a special treat!  Miss Abby from Charmed Bliss is sharing with us all the goodies inside her purse!  She's a talented young lady who I met at OBU!  She is a pageant queen, brutally honest blogger, super talented sports management woman, creative and amazing event planner, and just a sweet, sweet soul all around!  I'm glad to call her my friend!  =)

Hello from Charmed Bliss!  My name is Abby and Kati and I have been friends for about 6 years now and I am so excited she has decided to join us in the Blog Hop!  She is spectacular and an awesome blogger with her adorable son!  
Over at CharmedBliss I write about life.  I am always honest and hold nothing back!  In fact, I find texts from Kati shocked sometimes at what I write.  I definitely use my blog as an online diary.  Sharing only the most appropriate, fun, and inspiring ideas and adventures in life!  
Today's Blog Hop is entitled...
I got my bag from Amazon.com and it has been a great addition to my bag collection.  I change it out when I go on dates or to dinner, but during the day when I need EVERYTHING!  I love this carryall bag.  My favorite part about it - It is not a labeled bag.  There isn't a label on it.  I love that because so many times in today's world - everyone puts labels on everything - and this way I am uniquely me!
This is everything that I keep in my bag!  So let's dive in.

My iPad and my book are must haves especially since I have some down time between appointments at work and classes.  I am currently reading Waiting and Dating by Myles Munroe - it is actually a very encouraging read about waiting for Mr. Right while having fun in the meantime (it is Christian Read).  I keep my camera with my at ALL times - even though our phones have video and photo capability - I like to know I have a backup that is more reliable!  I am currently dieting (aren't we all) so my GUM is essential in my purse.  I usually go through about 5-6 packs a week.  My favorites are Extra Spearmint and Watermelon!  LOVE THEM!!  I always keep a hair tie in my bag, no telling when you will need it and I also keep a head band in my bag.  This gold one is my favorite because it has different strands of gold beads - so not only does it match my hair - but it matches every outfit!  The bag of earrings you see is just an extra set.  We all have those crazy mornings and I have to have three things, body spray, lipgloss, and earrings - without them I practically feel naked.  There are 2 pair in there a neutral pair and a coral/orange/red pair - because that is the color I wear most often.

Well Here are some of my favorite things that I keep in my bag:

 My favorite thing in my bag is probably my lipgloss.  As you can tell I love lip glosses because I hate when people's faces lose color - and LIPS is where you can bring that color back!  And plus - lipgloss (especially the ones with pumper and caffeine) make your lips tingly and the day brighter!  I love lip gloss!

My favorite Lip Gloss right now is probably the Moxie Lipgloss from BareMinerals with the Borghese Lip Plumber a close second.  My mom put the Ice Crystals in my stocking and I was reluctant to use it at first because I thought that it was a little teenage for me.  However, it is a perfect sweet-smelling gloss that can go over anything!  It is a great quick fix! The chubby stick is almost never used.  It will get used more often as the spring comes and goes - but right now I try and keep the naturals on my lips!
 As you can probably tell - I LOVE PENS and PENCILS and SHARPIES!  School Supplies shopping every year is my favorite time.  I love the colorful felt tip pens!  They are perfect in any situation!  However, my favorite pens to use are the rainbow InkJoy packs from Paper Mate.  They have a very bold tip and with all of the colors - makes taking notes very fun!  I will admit - that I keep my sunglasses in my purse out of a case, which is probably bad.  Well I know it is bad - as I was taking things out of my purse for this blog, I noticed that my sunglasses are broken  I loved these sunglasses.  They were perfect because 1. I found them at my house (no clue whose they are) and 2. There were NOT tight on my temple and behind the ears - they literally fit perfect!  I LOVED these sunglasses.  Oh Well.

 Just like I can't leave the house without lipgloss - I can't leave the house without body spray, touch up fingernail polish, and my eos lip balm.  I get fever blisters religiously - I am actually shocked that I don't have my medicine in my purse right now.  It is imperative I keep my lips moist at all times.  The slightest dry-ness or chapped parts and I will get a fever blister.  It is a curse that I have gotten down from my grandfather through my mother.  I know it is TMI, but it explains a lot!  This ESSIE fingernail polish is a MUST HAVE this season - it is called Bachelorette Bash!  And the CalGon MoonPetal Musk is a lovely body spray (that isn't too strong) and the eos is ALL from Walgreens!! I am a sucker for a good retail therapy at Walgreens!  It has everything a girl needs - Makeup, Body Wash and Hair stuff, Hallmark cards (I am a sucker for a good cry in Walgreens - especially if I am there for some "therapy") and you can't forget their frozen food section (cookie dough AND ice-cream).  LOVE IT!

This next picture is something that is popular in Waco.  It is called Bee Bar Lotion.  They have different flavors and it is a bar of lotion - it kind of looks like soap - but it is INTENSE lotion.  I was a little reluctant to use it at first because it is a different texture - and very greasy for a moment after you rub it in.  However, it really keeps my hands super moist.  
I know that it is stupid - but I have a Emergency TOGO box that I take in any purse I have.  It has lip liner with a sharpener, finger nail clippers, lipgloss (DUGH), and Tide To Go.  This all fits inside an old glasses case that I have.  It is absolutely wonderful and so convenient; especially since I change purses often.
