I mentioned on Friday that this month's The Circle theme is all about sharing what's in your bag. Yep, we're sharing what's in our purses, camera bags, work bags, or even beach bags. And if you've already published a post that fits this topic, feel free to link it up anyway. The more the merrier, right?
But before I share what's in my bag, I think I should introduce you to the co-host for this month. This girl is full of adventure and she inspires and encourages me to live life to the fullest, enjoying every single moment of it. But let me step aside so she can introduce herself and her blog, too:
Rivers and Roads is a lifestyle blog full of stories about my life in Tennessee, the mini adventures I go on, my journey with Jesus, DIYs, photographic endeavors, my love for Colorado, and my print shop dreams. I have been surprised and joyfully overwhelmed by the friends I've made in this community that have encouraged me to dream, pursue, and grow. I always want my blog to be a place where we can all grow together!
Meg is awesome, right? And because I know you're just as curious as I am, be sure to check out Meg's blog to see what she's got in her bag.
And now that I've cleaned out my purse (true story), here's a glimpse into my purse. It's purse that's seen better days, but it's a tried and true beloved bag of mine. It has the perfect straps (crossbodies for the win!), a fun color, and tons of pockets, too. And did I mention it's also from Claire's? Yep, who would've guessed.
BLUE FLORAL POUCH: This pouch was a serious win when I went shopping in California. There are Japanese stores called Daiso where almost all the products sold are $1.50. It's like a Japanese dollar store and it's pretty much heaven (especially since their products are higher quality than one would think!). Anyway, that pouch holds a comb, concealer, mirror (the turquoise rectangle on the pouch), and lip balm, too. I'm not too much of a make-up girl, but it's when you still breakout and/or want to make sure your hair isn't too crazy, it's a necessity to carry these items.
OTHER GOODIES: These things reside in various pockets of my purse and are kind of the odds and ends, too. I've got my wallet, CPR mask (my CPR/First Aid instructor would be proud I've included this!), mint gum (fresh breath for the win), Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and reusable bag, too.
So yes, there's a little bit of everything in that bag of mine. I guess it would be easy to conclude that I am not one of those girls who can carry a itty bitty purse. No offense if you do carry one of those bags--I truly admire that you can put everything in one little space!
I should also probably mention that I used to carry a lot more than what's pictured. But since I sometimes pack my camera or a waterbottle inside my bag, I've had to downsize and prioritize what stays inside.
So there's a little glimpse into my crazy bag that probably is fit for a survivalist...
And because it wouldn't be a link-up without it, now's your chance to share a few photos of what's in your bag! Do you carry everything in one bag, or you more of a minimalist? Do you prefer crossbodies to totes or handbags? I want to know what's in your bag and I know your blog friends do, too. So add your link below, grab a (new!) button, and check out what's inside everyone else's bags, too.
Have fun snooping!
