Welcome to the second edition of What's In It Wednesday! I hope y'all are ready to show us your purse and its contents! Why? Because every woman carries their favorite products in their handbags and I certainly want to see yours and show you what I am currently loving! AND, as a special, Ashleigh is sharing what's in her purse too! So, double the fun!
I normally carry a Louis Vuitton Batignolles Horizontal. But for the summer, I am carrying my lovely Francesca Joy Palm Beach tote custom designed for moi in pink and green palm trees and shells. I love it!
My job has me on-the-go constantly, so I need lots of room to carry everything I need for the office, home and Lallie. This tote works wonderfully.

I always have my Lilly makeup bag and Lilly pouch (made from a child's Lilly apron by yours truly). I usually have my Kindle when I'm not checking out books at the library
(YAY for supporting your local library! I try to use the library unless there is a long waiting list
for a book I want to read.)
I love Mento's and I have my LUNA bar notepad and a pen (thank you LUNA!)
Inside my Lilly makeup bag:
- OPI travel size hand lotions in Coconut Melon and Grapefruit
- Sally Hansen's Grow Nails Now! and Continuous Hardening Treatment (I had my acrylic nails removed so I'm trying to healthy up my nails)
- Hand sanitizer
- OUCH pouch from Pillows Sew Cute on Etsy with bandaids, Neosporin and contact drops
- LUNA chapstick in peppermint (love this stuff!)
- Nail file
- Hair "doeys" (prounounced "do-eeeees")
- Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter from LUSH (I got through POTS of this stuff)
- Two Avon Glazewear Shine Lip Gloss (I can't read the colors, but they're pink - Thank you new sissy-in-law, Jess!)
- And also from Jess, my monogrammed mirror
My Lilly file folders: Bills, Work, School, Recipes to Try (isn't that funny!), Ashleigh's Wedding (tres importante) and Misc.
Car keys, camera (I took these pictures with my new pink covered iPhone), CVS wipes (I have a toddler you know), Dentek flossers, the pink thing is one of Lallie's motorized bugs that she threw into my purse and my Vera Bradley wallet. I'm not a Vera fan, but I'm very picky about my wallet set up and I love Vera's setup.
Inside my oilcloth Lilly is my FlipVideo, Target's Real Simple card caddy and my new iPhone earphones
Now onto Ashleigh! And this is in her own words....
I can't find a purse I like right now so I am using an old one. It's not that great but it does the trick.
My camera. I NEVER go anywhere without my camera. I almost always have this one but if I don’t, I have the one on my phone.
I LOVE this! My Target business card holder that I use for credit cards. I have gone through at least three of these over the years. When the plastic rips, I buy another one. I have my driver's license in it and all of my credit cards. I love it because I can grab just it and my keys and go (if I am just running down the street or something). I have 3 more of these on standby in my closet. (Insert Jennifer here....I stole this idea from her, I love mine too...)
My Thirty-One Hard case wallet. I have my cash, change, and loyalty cards (like My Panera, my Ulta Club card, etc) in here.
I never leave home without a ponytail holder, toothpicks (I actually have more in my car), dental floss, a pen, fingernail clippers, and my migraine medicine (in a Tylenol bottle). (Insert Jennifer again here....she never once mentioned her Kindle. That's the green thing and I guarantee that she always has that with her too!)
A straw! Because I can’t stand having ice clink up against my teeth. So, if I am somewhere that doesn’t have straws readily available, I am prepared!
Carmex, Dr. Pepper lip smackers, and three Studio Gear lip sticks, Studio Gear Vitamin E. This is the best feeling, most soothing lip stuff ever! I love it. It’s a bit on the pricey side but I LOVE it! I normally ask my mom to put it in my stocking at Christmas.
Studio Gear Flirt. My favorite shade of lipstick. It has been discontinued :-(
I have just a little bit left. I am trying to save it. I took it to Ulta and tried to find a similar shade but there is nothing that is quite as perfect. I had to settle for…
Studio Gear Whisper.
A close second.
I LOVE these lipsticks. They feel good. They taste good. They last a long time.
It’s really the only brand I will wear.
And last but not least, my garage door opener. My garage where I live is not attached so I like to open the door while I am still inside. Especially when it’s raining. I get made fun of a lot for having this in my purse but it’s quite convenient. And since I’m getting married, I will be moving soon and hopefully I’ll have an attached garage and this won’t be an issue anymore. (Insert Jennifer here too. For some reason Ashleight put a frowny face after this, but I took it out because I can't figure out why she'd be sad to have an attached garage and getting married.)
So, that's our bags! I can't wait to see yours! Be sure to link up and let us know what's in your bag.
Happy Wednesday Y'all!
