It's all in the bag...

Okay, first of all, WELCOME to all the new followers!! I'm so glad you're here!

I get asked all the time why I carry a bag that's my size (I'm 5'2 for those of you who are dying to know. and I know some of you are.) I always respond that I carry my life in it. And it's soooo true. If I think I've misplaced my bag for even a millisecond, a panic attack ensues. It's not pretty ladies.

With that being said, I figured I'd share what actually is hidden in my not so little piece of luggage.



See why I need a big bag? And is it ridiculously obvious that I have a slight addiction to lipgloss?

Too bad it never looks this organized. You'd have a better shot of finding that needle-in-a-haystack that people always say, than anything that's tossed in my bag.

Okay, let's list this mess out...

My actual bag is a Kate Spade tote that was one heckuva deal ($498 at Nordstrom in October. $150 at Kate Spade Outlet in January. Blaire-1 Kate Spade-0). It definitely is the perfect tote for work. Classic, seamless, and roomy.

My lipglosses are NARS, MAC, and Lancome (which I got for free in a bonus one time). After looking at this pic, I'm realizing I spend to much $ on pretty much the same shade of color. I might want to finish one tube before splurging on the next. I'm a true believer in a lip gloss. It adds that finishing touch to your look. Find one you love and stick with it....unlike me. Oh, and don't go too bright or harsh. It's distracting to the person you're talking to.

My iPad, a notebook, and my sunglasses are ALWAYS with me. My iPad because I use it for client meetings, my calendar, email access, internet access, etc. My notebook because I like to jot down ideas or notes when they come to me, whether it be blog post ideas, marketing ideas for work, reminders, etc. And sunglasses for obvious reasons....every girl has to own a rockin' pair, right?!

My keys, gum, and 2 bottles of Purell. Because clearly one doesn't do the trick. Actually, my mom apparently thinks I'm not clean enough so she gave me one to keep on my keychain for Christmas. Because no one, including the pope, is allowed to touch my nephew without having freshly purelled. Everyone needs gum or mints. Especially if you meet with clients, bosses, co-workers, friends, significant others...frankly anyone who has the ability to smell your breath. Keep it fresh peeps.

And my basic daily make-up touch ups...NARS tinted moisturizer, Lancome mascara, and NARS lip gloss (in Turkish Delight..my fav!!) My days can be long with client dinners, seminars, etc. and I've got to touch up occasionally.

So, there you have it. Too bad the people (ahem, fellas) that ask me on a consistent basis what "could possibly fit in that bag" won't read this. Darn. Oh, and if you're wondering where my iPhone is...I keep it attached to my hand. It rarely makes it into the bag:)

  1. My bag is always disorganized and I feel like I'm always digging for my keys. I'd really like to be one of those people with a totally organized purse. One of these days...

    1. I feel your pain! But I hate those "purse organizers" that I've seen on TV...they are so awful looking! And who wants to pull that out in front of everyone?! I figure one of these days I'll take the time to organize my own bag and actually utilize the pockets;)

  2. I am always digging for my keys. I am desperately in need of a new bag that can do double duty as a purse and work bag.

    1. Oh geez, I didn't realize it was on! Thanks for telling me! I hate having to do the word verification on other people's blogs:/
