What’s In My Bag: Everyday Purse

I have always been interested in what other women keep in their purse, items a woman deems as necessary to have everywhere she goes. Today I decided to give ya’ll an unexpurgated look into what I carry in my own everyday purse!

First off, this is the purse I use on a daily basis while running errands or just plain leaving the house. Boathouse Purse 


This first item may seem a bit unnecessary to keep in a purse, but I always carry a pouch inside of my purse to make things easier while transferring items from one purse to another. Aerie Pouch

NECESSITIES: The items kept in this pouch are my necessities while leaving the house at any time. This includes: Burt’s Bees Hand Cream, Lady Speed Stick Deodorant, Advil, Anti-Nausea Pills, Toothpaste & Toothbrush, Toothpicks, Saje Virgin Lips Balm, Bandaids, Antibacterial Wipes, Benadryl and an Epi Pen.

BEAUTY: In the bottom of my purse I keep a comb for those darn fly-aways, reading glasses, sun glasses, my everyday lipstick (Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Audition) and Smashbox Insta-Matte Gel for over my lipstick. These items do not usually get used while out and about, but they are nice to have incase of beauty emergencies!

ELECTRONICS: These next three items are kept in the lower front compartment on the outer portion of my purse. The first item is a back up battery pack from ALDO. This is the best battery pack I have owned, as it does not heat up, it holds a long charge and it fits nicely behind my iPhone so I can continue to use my phone. The second electronic type item is a compact alerting device incase I am ever in a dangerous situation and can not yell for help. You just pull out a tab and begins making the most annoying, loud beeping noise to alert anyone around you. I am a very petite woman who is barely five feet tall so this makes me feel a little safer while walking alone. Third item is (of course!!) ear buds! They get their own photo as they were a bit of an afterthought since I was currently using them at the time these photos were taken.

SNACKS: Snacks, Snacks, Snacks! My favourite part of the contents of my purse! I always have gum, tic tacs, ginger candies (for nausea) and a granola bar; which did not make into the pictures portion of this blog post because I had eaten it whilst unpacking my purse, haha!

PURSE ACCESSORIES: On the outside of my purse, I keep this purple faux-leather tassel to brighten up my bland brown purse a bit. Connected to the tassel are my house keys.

RANDOMS: Since I did not clean out my purse before writing this post, there a few extra items that have been collected over the past few weeks of so. Some I will be removing from my purse, and some I have decided will stay. These items are: a notebook and pen (great for writing blog ideas down on the go!), three loyalTEA cards, a free mcdonalds coffee card, my lock and key for the gym locker, a movie theatre ticket, an acupuncturists business card (I highly recommend going for Acupuncture!), a coupon, spare change…and a light bulb (don’t ask why).whats in my purse random

  1. I love the must haves you’ve got in your every day purse (I call mine the everything bag, haha)! I’m always amazed when I see women carrying tiny little purses with almost nothing inside. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who has bag full of necesities! I look forward to reading more and please check out some of my musings about women’s fitness, health and lifstyle at: tonyetariah-fitnessandhealth.com
