Insight into my life - Personal

I've been tagged along with 3 other great women, to find out what is essential to my purse...................

This is my Purse. I have two Beautiful classic shaped leather purses of good quality now. This is a brand name, however not 'designer label'. It's soft rich leather, will hopefully see me through a decade timelessly and maybe longer. My other purse is a shoulder strap and I chose this one because I wanted a satchel style. Something I could chuck across my body armed with everything I needed for an outing with the kids, still be stylish and not dig into my shoulder doing so. I love this purse! 
Truly a mess of things shoved into all the right places to find while digging without looking. I organized it a bit as I do that best. These are the essentials for me. Things I carry all the time!
Lotion - perhaps I could get a smaller tube?!
Wallet, kleenex, lulu lemon zipper pouch with gift cards, little fun lenses for my iPhone, movie passes for date night, cheque book, a bright zippered change purse.........
My Prada Wallet, gifted to me by an amazing client!! Still in shock over it! Love it and use it everyday!
My mass collection of gloss and more lipgloss. It makes me feel pulled together and cute to throw some on before I get out of the car. The colourful zig zag is super cute Kleenex pouch! I always have firstaid with me. Cute and handy bandaid holder, advil and I mix in tylenol too. My kids get injured a lot! and that gives me a headache!
I keep 2 card holders. One with my family health cards. I'm telling you they get hurt a lot! And the other with paint chips from my home to match with anything when I'm out and about. And I sometimes take my polaroid with me so there is usually a few fun pics collecting in my purse. I love my Polaroids!
Now you can make fun or laugh at me, but socks are a must!!! Do you get cold in the movie theatre? Ever go bowling on a whim? Visit a friends in flip flops and wish you had socks? I do! These come in handy more then you would think!
This is my current favourite bag. It holds everything I need to be in the car and going, going, going, for most of my day. I believe in classic and not too trendy. Not too big, but big enough. Deceivingly big is the best! I've got the perfect balance down now. I don't keep old receipts or odds and ends in this purse, just what I need and nothing more.

If you want to tour a few other purses try out these......
Purse 1. Mary Ann
Purse 2. Julianne
Purse 3. Shannon

P.S. Somehow I didn't photograph my phone.... I love my phone case too! It fits in that front bottom zipper pocket for super easy access. An absolute must!! Especially in the summer when I don't wear a jacket with pockets.

I think I need to put more things in my purse. It's not very interesting at all.

I have my wallet, keys, sunglasses (unless I'm wearing them or left them in the car), lipchap, sometimes a bunny bar... and these days I typically forget diapers and wipes even though we still need them! Bare minimal I guess. I think I'll have to try out babylips.

Liz I love this post and LOVE your purse. It's so cute and sooo you!

Fun to see you all sharing what's inside your bags. I did this a few years ago in 2008 - here's the link: http://www.muirheadkingdom.com/blogs/daria/tag/purse/

It's fun to look back and see what I used to carry. I guess it's time to update and join in the fun. Love you Liz!

Too funny I bought the orange one! I was out shoe shopping with the girls last week, when I innocently walked by this purse hanging on display. I like to touch things, and as my hand grazed this purse it had me @ "hello"! It WAS the softest leather I had ever felt. I went online & found it for a price I could live with, and now I'm waiting for it's arrival...
You inspire me Elizabeth to clean out all the empty gum wrappers and organize my purse, cause we all know as women it IS our life line!
