What’s In My Bag

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!

    I “winterize” my bag with tissues, finger-less gloves (for typing at work!) and chapstick.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! :)

    Also — I love your cell phone case! It’s super cute. Where did you get it?

    lots and lots of hand cream!

    question for you – is that a Foley and Corinna bag? if so, would you mind telling us what size (or which model, I guess) you bought? I’m debating different sizes online and can’t decide which one to choose.

    thanks a mill!

    PS unrelated but I am a rare commenter – I still love NARS concealer but I found that lately I am having to pair it with a brightener to fight the really bad circles. concealer + brightener = money combo.

    I live in Southern California too, so “winter” accessories = heavier lip balm, lotion, and cough drops.

    Right now in my winterized bag I have 3 Victoria’s Secret lip glosses, 1 Burt’s Bees lip balm, and 1 Philosophy Pink Almond Candy – and that’s just for my lips! I also have tissues and a tube of Eucerin hand cream.
