For our 7-year wedding anniversary at the beginning of this month, Cody got me this gorgeous Kate Spade bag. It’s my first designer bag, and I love it so much! Of course, I knew I would because I picked it out and told him to get it for me. Ha! 😉 Are we surprised I picked out black? Probably not because we all know black is my favorite color to wear. Since getting this new purse, I’ve vowed to keep it a little more organized and a lot less messy. Usually I have a pile of receipts at the bottom of my bag, but I’m trying really hard to throw away the trash and only keep the necessities. Here is a list of what’s in my bag 🙂

Wallet: The zipper on my old wallet broke, so when I was at Target the other day, I picked up this “Only Good Vibes” wallet. It’s the perfect size to hold my driver’s license, debit cards, gift cards (these suckers are burning a hole in my wallet and must be spent soon!), and money. It can even fit my iPhone 6!

Tampax Pocket Pearl: These are a girl’s best friend! While I was wondering through the aisles of Target the other day (the same day I found my wallet), I spotted these cute little Tampax Pocket Pearl tampons on the shelf and knew they’d be perfect to keep in my purse. The smaller size allows them to easily fit into any purse (even my clutches), but they still provide the same protection as the bigger size. Plus, the print of the wrapper makes them super discreet. Cute packaging gets me every time 🙂

Sunglasses: I cleaned out my purse the other day and had four pairs of sunglasses in it! I’m going to try to only keep one pair at a time in my bag.

Snacks: I have to eat something every two hours or I start to feel sick, so I always have some sort of snack in my bag. Usually it’s either a snack bar, an apple, or almonds.

Makeup Bag +Goodies: My best friend, Jordan, found this cute makeup bag for me. I use it to keep my favorite lip products (the EOS Lip Balm is my lips best friend), Advil, hand sanitizer, roller perfume, hair ties, and that sort of stuff. I love the Target beauty section so basically all my drugstore beauty goodies are in there 🙂

Business Cards: I hand out most of my business cards to the people who see me taking pictures of myself  with a tripod and wonder what in the heck I’m doing. When I hand them my business card, they think I’m less weird.

Cell Phone: Because I’ve learned that if I forget it at home for two hours and don’t answer when my mom tries calling, she’ll start to get super worried that I’m lying dead in a ditch somewhere and start calling every person I know to make sure I’m alive. True story! She was seriously about 5 minutes away from calling the police because I forgot my phone one time (she’s the biggest worrier on the planet!)

Emergency Kit: My sister is an Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, so she gave me a little emergency kit to keep in my purse so I’m prepared at all times.

Gum: Fresh breath is a must! Enough said.

What are some of the necessities you keep in your bag?
