What's In My Bag? A Smooshy Melted Snickers

Let's talk about things you see on, let's say, Instagram that you don't necessarily find to be all that true for a moment. Take the #whatsinmybag trend that Sarah so hilariously explained here, for example. Who are these women and why are the insides of their purses so immaculate?

So, then I went and mangled through the monstrosity I refer to as my purse and my hand brushed against a melted, flattened, smooshed Snickers and realized I'm playing in a completely different ball field than these other chicks over here. Let's take a gander, shall we?
Three: the number of koozies I have in my bag. Why? I like to party, I guess.

Bottom right corner would be the compilation of garbage just hanging out in my bag. Minus the Monopoly scratch off... that's worth $5.

Don't forget the melted Snickers and questionable dinner mint.

Also, like Sarah, I have a spare iPhone case and no idea why that's necessary.

And then there's the 90's Nokia that clearly doesn't work, but if it did I'd be all over Snake. All day, erry day. What can I say? I'm one nostalgic little peach.

An empty birth control pack. Because that's definitely something I need to save.

Then we have Advil (For hangovers, duh.) and my little pill case I put my vitamins in (because I'm old now and it's the responsible thing to do).

Donald Duck over there is a Disney annual pass holder, except for it's empty because my pass is in my wallet. So, really that's more garbage.

A memory card, for when I take pictures with my purse. Or not.

A Big Ben condom from Scotland... which was a gift from bear.... which is ironically placed next to the empty birth control pack in this photo. I wish I could say I purposely did that.

Eyeball juice. Because my eyeballs hate me.

Matches... because I like free stuff.

A USB plug. With nothing connected. You never know.

Eight products designated specifically for my lips. Looking at this photo, that may be slightly excessive. Maybe. 

Beach Babe hair stuff. Entirely purchased and tossed in my bag because of the cute, small size. I don't think I've actually used it more than once.

VS body spray... ain't nobody got time to stink. 

Probably my favorite part of this would be the tangled, broken necklaces I found. There are two and they are just hanging out in there.

Bobby pins. All of which I found spread out over bear's apartment when he moved out. Oops. I guess I'm that girl now.

Hair bows. You never know when you're gonna need to slap a bow on something. 

Tangled up Erin/Whit bracelet. From my first trip to visit Erin. Aka like 6+ months ago. 

Cards. You can never be too prepared.

Old grocery lists. Very important, as I'm sure you all know. 

And there you have it. The disaster that is what's in my bag. You're welcome.

Now, on to important business. #backthatazzup.
Except today my jam isn't exactly one you'd #backthatazzup to, but I love it too much not to use it. Oh, and if you want to get all emotion and sappy, just go ahead and watch the music video... amazing.

    Well I do believe we could be great friends. I love partying as well, and well my purse if full of random stuff lol I hope you have a great weekend!

    I heard this song a couple of weeks ago when I re-watched the season 9 finale of Grey's Anatomy in preparation for season 10. I guess I didn't notice it the first time around . . . . but I am IN LOVE!

  3. October 4, 2013 at 11:05 AM

    your purse is an adorable, lovable mess.
    just like you.

  4. October 4, 2013 at 11:06 AM

    This is a much more accurate representation of a normal girl's purse! Mine probably looks very similar minus the disney pass (jealous) and add like 5 dollars worth of change.

  5. October 4, 2013 at 11:14 AM

    this is hilarious. and actually very similar to my purse. also - i now want a snickers. happy friday girl!

  6. October 4, 2013 at 11:15 AM

    Nice to know I'm not the only one who doesn't take the placebo pill in the BC pack, lol. What's the point?

    1. October 4, 2013 at 2:41 PM

      I don't take them either, pointless!

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:18 AM

    I took a picture of what's in my bag the other day, it wasn't much but I did have an old grocery list and a pair of my daughters socks. I mean you never know when you'll need to try on shoes right.

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:20 AM

    I'm contemplating getting the Disney annual pass. Is it worth the downpayment and monthly fee?

    Which one did you get? The one with free parking and all that jazz or just the cheapy one?

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:34 AM

    What's with the the extremely old phone in your purse?! hahaha
    I actually just cleaned my purse out at my desk. Expired coupons and old receipts everywhere. I also had a smashed Mambo candy at the bottom with a blonde hair intertwined in the wrapper. Tasty!

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:41 AM

    A few things I need to state for the record.. what the fuck is that phone doing in your purse? Also, you didn't cross wine off of your grocery list. Should I be concerned? That's all.

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:43 AM

    John Legend is totally my boyfriend. I have to say your purse crap beats my purse crap and I have a ton of purse crap. Congrats!

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:48 AM

    Lol im glad Im not the only one who hoards lip gloss in her bag!

  • October 4, 2013 at 11:59 AM

    This cracks me up! And also makes me curious what all I would actually find in my bag... probably something similar with a few baby toys, maybe a sucker, and probably a zillion bobby pins. SMH!

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:00 PM

    Oh and lip gloss x 20 - even though I have a little pouch for lip gloss and lip stick, I tend to still find them throughout my entire purse!

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:01 PM

    This is exactly why I switched from purse to wristlet. I never understood why I would clean my purse to find crumbs among all the receipts and straw rappers and 5 chapsticks.

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:10 PM

    Hmmm not sure why my comments are posting lately. This post made me laugh. Sounds like me.

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:12 PM

    Yes, just yes!! This is more like my purse!! You know they cleaned out their purse and left out all the random stuff! I totally keep a BAG of lipgloss in my purse, but I never know what color or flavor I may want. I am a girl, I can change my mind! :)

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:17 PM

    This is brilliant, so good to know that I am not alone in lugging around actual crap all day! No Snickers in my bag, but I'm sure there are some Starburst wrappers, empty Birth Control, old lists, and soo many vitamins that my bag sounds like a baby's rattle (I ALWAYS forget to take them!) xx

  • travelloveandhappinessOctober 4, 2013 at 12:20 PM

    haha yes! i recently switched to a smaller purse and cleaned out my bigger one. it was slightly terrifying... i mean, all of the receipts could have once been a small christmas tree.

    happy friday, lady!

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:46 PM

    Umm....I think you need to clean that thing out more often! haha You are definitely prepared though. ;)

  • October 4, 2013 at 12:50 PM

    I love seeing what people keep in their bags! The condom just killed me.

  • October 4, 2013 at 1:28 PM

    LOL! I love it- glad I'm not the only one who has a mess of random, old candy, lists, and 5 billion things to put on my lips!

    Also- can I borrow your Disney season pass say... in February? Thanks.

  • October 4, 2013 at 1:32 PM

    Your lip gloss collection is so tempting !!

  • October 4, 2013 at 1:55 PM

    This is amazing and I love it. Mine is usually a compliation of receipts and trash from montttths ago. And random tile and fabric samples, you never know when you need to design something at the drop of a hat.

  • October 4, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    HAHA this is so great and true!!! Love Sarah's post as well.

  • October 4, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    So...did you eat the Snickers? Because I found a peanut M&M in my purse and I was SO tempted to eat it but I refrained...but I wouldn't judge you if you ate it. Maybe just the tip?

  • October 4, 2013 at 2:44 PM

    I just changed over to a new purse last night, felt good to get rid of all the garbage and nonsense in there... Until of course it starts to pile up again in the new purse, haha!

    What's with the Nokia??

  • October 4, 2013 at 2:50 PM

    People who do those posts are lying. They have to be! haha
    Everyone has at least a gum wrapper or old receipt or something in their bag. Also, there is no f-ing way I'm going to have designer sunglasses worth hundreds of dollars floating around my purse! They would be smushed in all of 5 minutes. Plus nothing that has spend a good deal of time in my purse looks nice at all - like these pictures they take where everything looks brand spanking new!

    Sighhhh ;)

  • October 4, 2013 at 4:42 PM

    You have so many lip glosses :)

  • October 4, 2013 at 5:17 PM

    It's pretty much the best thing to see a Nokia phone still in a purse.

  • October 4, 2013 at 6:09 PM

    The Nokia. I'm dying. I was just waiting for you to say that's your ACTUAL phone.

  • October 4, 2013 at 7:21 PM

    Girl, you are totally prepared! You could live for weeks on just those items! LOL

    Sarah @ Life As Always

  • October 4, 2013 at 8:03 PM

    I would probably need two separate post to go over everything in my purse. I kid you not. Oh and I always have koozies on me at all times. AT ALL TIMES!

  • October 4, 2013 at 8:14 PM

    I did this after a friend told me to join the trend, but I don't think I'm going to share. Mine is WAY worse than this. Like most of it is garbage. Just keepin' it real, I guess.

  • October 4, 2013 at 8:20 PM

    This is great! Mine is a similar crazy assortment of stuff. So jealous of the Disney pass!

  • October 4, 2013 at 9:21 PM

    This is definitely the most believable "what's in my bag" post. I never understand how other ladies have 0 trash in their bags.

    My only addition would be lots of hand sanitizer, a random pull-up and some boogie-wipes. Clearly I'm a catch.

  • October 5, 2013 at 12:06 AM

    When I use my longchamps I have to use a vera make up bag to organize everything random.

  • October 5, 2013 at 2:01 AM

    All that did NOT come out of your purse.....

  • October 5, 2013 at 10:27 AM

    HAHAH why the old nokia?!

  • October 5, 2013 at 4:45 PM

    Cute purse!!!!! Also: your iPhone case has to always match your outfit.. that's why you need more than one. Duh.

  • October 5, 2013 at 7:51 PM

    I have always been hesitant to do this because of the VAST number of rando things in my bag but this makes me feel better and maybe now I should!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  • October 5, 2013 at 11:39 PM

    I love this post!!! xxx

  • brooklinsmashOctober 6, 2013 at 2:35 AM

    What a relief to know I am not the only woman who hoards several lip glosses, all very similar in color, in my purse. ;)

  • October 6, 2013 at 9:38 AM

    How do you keep all of that in there?! I'm seriously the worst girl ever. I hate carrying things so I keep it as light as possible.

  • October 6, 2013 at 12:48 PM

    This is exactly what my bag looks like! I keep TOO much stuff in their!

  • October 6, 2013 at 6:11 PM

    My purse might as well be garbage can because all that's in there is trash!

  • October 6, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    This looks like every purse I've ever owned... Can't keep those things clean to save my life. PS, if you want snake for your iPhone, they have a free version here: I apologize in advance for ruining all productivity in your life...


Thanks for the love - I love hearing from each and every one of you. It makes my day!
