Let’s Get Purse-onal: Pack to Pass The Time

Let's Get Purse-onal: Bag by Relic

When I was a young tot, still playing dress-up and wearing my mom’s purse as if it were my own, I remember having to rest my shoulders because the weight of the bag was probably as much as my little head. Over time, I couldn’t understand why girls traveled so heavily. It wasn’t until I became a tote totin’ teen myself that I understood: It’s key to a woman’s daily routine.

These days I pack my purse so I’m always ready to pass the time. I find myself waiting around a lot; either waiting to meet with a friend, waiting for an oil change to finish, waiting for class to start, etc. For those moments, any current magazine I have comes in handy. There’s also my trusty pen and pocket sketchbook that I use to sketch bits of things that catch my eye.

The other contents of my bag are things you might find in another girl’s. I’ve got my wallet (which also keeps my pen and sketchbook in a secure place), VS PINK lotion, a wide-tooth comb to tame my tangle-loving hair, anti-bacterial foam since I’m a freak about germs when it comes to touching door knobs, my huge HTC HD2 to keep me connected, and a camera to capture memories and inspiration.

I keep my make-up bag relatively light. Sometimes I do without it completely. For the past three years I’ve had the same MAC foundation, Physician’s Formula “Touch of Taupaz” eye-brightener, and Forever21 brown blush which doesn’t sound pretty, but it looks great on my cheekbones. The only items I change up are my lip balm and moisturizer. Last but not least, I carry a travel-sized bottle of shampoo, partly because it’s summer and I love going to the beach, just not the sandy hair feeling I get afterward. And thanks to where I work, my other reason for keeping shampoo with me is my fear of getting crapped on by a bird. There happen to be evil seagulls at my summer job.

    The shampoo is a good idea and something that I’ve never thought about before. I have evil birds at my job too!

    I remember being 13 and making the decision to start carrying a purse. I remember not knowing what besides tampons and Lip Smackers to carry around in it. I’d kind of scan my room looking for items that would fit in it. Today is a whole other story. I have to buy extra large purses to fit my planner, makeup case, wallet, cell phone, keys, water bottle ect. No shampoo though :)

    ps. cute bag.
