What's in Your Purse?

_MG_5042.jpgThere are a few purses around here, but I really, only, use about two of them. I use this one quite often because it's pretty versatile and goes with a lot of things that I wear. I call it my neutral purse.
_MG_5044.jpgThe other purse I use often is this turquoise purse. I love turquoise and even if it doesn't match what I'm wearing I still carry it around. It's just a fun and cute purse. Don't you agree? Did I mention that both of these purses are actually camera bags? Yes, that means that I literally carry my camera around almost everywhere I go. Since these bags are pretty roomie they would also be a great diaper bag substitute. I said good-bye to my diaper bag a long time ago and now I just use one of these two purses, though I'm itching for a new purse.

  • Wallet w/ my cute envelopes.
  • Pens and paper. That's a must right? It seems like when I don't have them in my purse I always need them.
  • Though my little girls are potty trained I always have a fear that they will have an accident when we're out. It hasn't happened yet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed and an extra change of clothes.
  • I keep Cheerios in my purse for my little girls for when we're out running errands. It keeps them distracted from touching things in the store.
  • I also keep a re-usable shopping bag in my purse. You never know when you might need to haul a little something extra that won't fit in your purse. 
  • Lotion, lip gloss, and a mirror also have a home in my purse.
  • I carry a potholder, turned emergency kit that holds band-aids, vitamins, Advil, hair rubber bands, and Kleenex.
  • Little mini brag books of my family and Pyrex dishes are also in my purse. Yes, Pyrex. I know. . .
  • Last, but not least, I really do carry my camera with me almost everywhere I go. I'm Asian. It's what Asians do.
_MG_5073.jpgEverything fits perfectly inside. That little empty spot is for my camera, but it's not in there because I'm using it to photograph the purse, but you knew that.
_MG_5067.jpgHere's everything in my brown purse. What I love is that since it's a camera bag there are dividers and I can keep everything organized in their own little seciton. This is what also makes it the perfect diaper bag.
_MG_5033.jpgThere you have it: all the things I carry in my purse. Now what's in your purse. I'd love to see.

Your purse is SO neat! Mine is filled with like old receipts, wrappers and random crumbs from cereal bars. I will NOT be sharing my purse contents on my blog, not ever. Lol.

How often do you think you are going to have to update that Pyrex album? Daily? :) I love both of your purses!

Lucy said...

I covet! I have often wondered how I could take my camera along, but expecting my 6th made me think it wasn't possible. Way to show me how it's done - thanks!

You forgot Homer! :(

Adriane said...

Loves it! You really carry that gigantic camera with you everywhere you go?! Holy smokes. I am a lightweight. Clearly.

JAN said...

Heather, Homer hadn't made an appearance in my purse when these photos were taken. ;)

Kel, I left some empty pages in my book so I could write down new pieces.

I just want to say that you have once again proved you are Super Mom. Your purses are lovely and you are crazy organized. I mean, separate sections in your purse. That is crazy and genius!
I'm so jealous of you right now. I'm jealous of you and your Pyrex. (I do own a few pieces though. :) )

Those are camera bags? NO WAY!! Those are the cutest camera bags I have ever seen! Where did you get them? I would LOVE to have dividers in my purse like that!!!
