This post is sponsored by Ricola. RIIIIIIIICOLAAAAAAAAA.
Let’s take a look in my bag, shall we? (While writing this post, I thought I remembered doing something similar, and look! 2005, y’all. 8 YEARS AGO. Look at that phone! Hahaaaaa.)
As you can see, my uber minimalist days of yore have disappeared, although I still try to keep things relatively tidy. Is it ridiculous that I have a paper calendar, a miniature notepad, AND a pack of post-it notes? Hell no! I am a List Maker, remember? However it might be ridiculous that I carry with me SEVEN lip products…hey, it’s winter and I need to keep my lips moisturized, peeps. Oh, and speaking of old man winter, Ricola, the leading manufacturer of soothing herb drops from Switzerland, has added a new product to its line of herb drops, Extra Strength, for powerful cough relief, which I am sure to keep in my bag at all times during the cooler months. (Go ahead and count ’em – 7 commas in that sentence.)
Thanks to the lovely herbal drop makers, it’s giveaway time! The winner of this giveaway will receive a $100 VISA gift card and a Ricola Soothing Relief Kit! Awww yeahhhhh. Leave a comment telling me how you “winterize” your bag before Friday, December 20th, and you’ll be entered to win! Thanks, Ricola!

For my constantly chapped lips and cracked hands, I love love love Aveeno skin relief healing ointment. But I HATE the word ointmint. *shudder*

Lip gloss, lip gloss, lip gloss (I have 5 lip products in my purse)
An extra set of gloves (I always seem to have one glove in my coat pocket)
A small container of Vick Vaporub (just in case my nose gets stuffy)

Happy Holidays… a great giveaway…. thank you.

Well, seeing as how I live in sunny Florida, I always have hand sanitizer and sunglasses in my bag. I do like to add Eucerin hand lotion because my knuckles will crack if we have a cold front. I had a terrible cold in October that left me with a hacking cough for SIX weeks. Those Ricola cough drops were the only thing that gave me some relief. Love them!

Kleenex and Chapstick and gloves oh my
RisDecember 18, 2013 at 8:39 am
Aquaphor and cough drops and kleenex are all essential.
