"What's in my bag?"

I've gotten a lot of requests for a "what's in my bag" post, so here it is! I am pretty boring when it comes to what I carry on a daily basis. :)

"What's in my bag?" for my blog

Inside, I always carry the same things-

"What's in my bag?" for my blog

from clockwise, starting at the bag...

  • pencil case...I always have a black pen with me...I hate using any other color in my dayplanner! Weird, I know! And being a teacher, I also always have red pens with me.
  • wallet, meticulously organized
  • Kindle (I've talked about this wonderful gadget many times- I love it!)
  • dayplanner
  • Makeup bag- inside: Laura Mercier translucent pressed powder, Burts Bees Pomegranate lip balm (addicted), an Hour of the Wolf guitar pick (I don't know how that got in there but these (and bobby pins) can usually be found near me all the time), teasing comb (when I need that volume!) ;)
  • my sunglasses for today/sunglasses case
So there you have it! I pretty much a minimalist when it comes to what I keep with me. I don't like clutter so I don't carry too much. Before the Kindle I would always have a book or two with me, but with this addition to my life, I have any book I want to read at my fingertips! I also typically have my ipod, but today it's in the car.

I hope all of you have a fabulous Friday evening. Hank and I are off to enjoy a great dinner at Bin239, one of our favorite restaurants in town. Afterward I will be enjoying a late night gym visit with my friend Robyn, I can't wait!

I also wanted to share this adorable photo of Madeline I snapped while taking photos of my bag. She seems to be saying, "Mommmm, no more pictures! PLEASE." I love it.

Mommmm, no more pictures! PLEASE.
