What's In My Bag?

Today's post is all about what's in my bag. The things that go with me EVERYWHERE!

First - thanks to Confessions of A Control Freak, I have finally found the BEST cuticle oil and hand lotion. O.P.I. Avoplex hand and nail lotion and O.P.I. Avoplex Cuticle Oil To-Go. Since I started using a week ago, my hands are 100X's better looking! Wonderful stuff!

My Vera Bradley, Cupcakes Green umbrella. It's rainy season in south Florida, so this never stays in my car. I walk into the supermarket when it's sunny and walk out 30 minutes later and it's raining cats and dogs.

I think I would absolutely CROAK if I didn't have my Blackberry Storm with me at all times!

These are the best things ever. I work partly indoors and partly outdoors. I don't really sweat however, my face gets very oily, especially where my sunglasses sit on my nose. These oil absorbing sheets by Clean & Clear are great for soaking up all that oil and making your skin dry again, keeping that hideous shine away. I highly recommend!

My notebook. This has all my "needs to know" things on-the-go. Passwords, special websites and email addresses, my daughter's pre-paid college information, how-tos, among other "not to forgets." Not to mention, it's by Lilly Pulitzer, so it's gorgeous and just makes me feel pretty just holding it!

The Couponizer. I am a HUGE coupon collector. I save tons and tons of money every week on groceries and other items through CVS (extra care bucks - I am the master!) and everywhere else. If you are coupon clipper - get this at If you are not a coupon collector, I reccommend you become one!

My camera - you never know when those special moments are going to occur. I've been carrying this non-stop since I started blogging.

My current read, Mating Rituals of the North American Wasp by Lauren Lipton. My job often has me waiting for extremely past due appointments, so I always have a book in tow.

Hand sanitizer (in Japanses Flower Blossom - yummy!) - I always have this, for Baby Girl when we're out and about and for when I get done meeting with those above-mentioned "past-due appointments" that have dirty hands.

Altoids - enough said!

Last but not least - Clinique's lip gloss in Air Kiss. I don't wear lipstick, haven't in years. Instead, I've been wearing this for years. A must have in my book.

So, there you have it. Now, I tag.... ALL OF YOU! Tell me what is in your bag because what's in your bag are usually the best products, the ones that actually work. So, I'm interested to hear what other things I should be trying out myself!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I've got to clean OUT my bag so I can see what's in it! LOL

  2. That's a challenge I'll take. I'll post it this weekend.

  3. Hmm...I have the first two items in my bag right now also. LOL!!! I love this idea even though I've done it before but I will do it again (especially since there is a new handbag involved). XOXO
