I Will Show You Mine {if you will show me yours}

Each Wednesday in the month of May I will be doing a series “I Will Show You Mine {if you will show me yours}.

You will also have the chance to link up and show “yours”.

Last week I showed what makeup I use.

This week I thought it would be fun to show you what I carry in my purse.

This is really it except there was some loose garbage that I had to shake out:-)

1. The Anne Ruffle Messenger Bag

2. My favorite sunglasses from Banana Republic

3. Keys (with the oldest leather key chain but my father in law gave it to me years ago)

4. I always have to include some food incase I am someplace that doesn’t have gluten free

5. My favorite Arbonne makeup brush

6. Covergirl concealer

7. Wallet from Target

8. iPhone (cracked all over the place from my children and me dropping it all of the time)

9. Mineral Fusion face powder

10. Visine (so I don’t look like I have been smokin’ weed)

11. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia (I don’t know why I had three in my purse)

12. My business postcards

13. Dried mango…everyone needs a little dried mango sometimes

14. Moleskin journal to collect all of my brain dumps

15. My favorite pen in the whole world (Pentel EnerGel Liquid Gel Ink).  I swear I have 50 in the house so I never run out.

16. Stevia

17. I always carry multiple rubber bands for this crazy mane of mine.

18. One lone tampon…just in case

Now your life will never be the same because you know what Jeanne Oliver carries in her purse:-)

I love this kind of random info and I hope you share too.

Now it is time for you to share “yours”.

You can link below or tell me in the comments.

    I love this type of thing! I like how prepared you are! I jumped in on your “show and tell”… it wouldn’t let me add my link.

    I love this:) All I really carry in my bag is…lipgloss…phone and wallet.:) Oh and my journal!! Never go anywhere without a journal!!

    I am using MY Jeanne Oliver Messenger bag!! Inside is a wallet from Macy’s which is most of the weight in the bag! Make up bag with mirror, eye drops, lipstick (Covergirl “Sultry”), lip pencil (L’Oreal “Nudes”) & Aspirin. Sunglasses from TJ Maxx I believe, keys, phone (Android Charge), receipts, 8oz bottle of water from Sam’s Club, Groupon for a car wash (which my car is begging me to use). Soccer practice schedule for my son. A BIC pen (love those!). My son’s wish list for the Scholastic Book Fair. And an empty wrapper of a organic cereal bar, I usually have one in my purse like you Jeanne!

    Love this post!!

    I was in Big Lots today & they had your shade of Burt’s Bees in a 2 pack for $6! I searched for my shade, but no luck. I love this series, but I don’t blog. Maybe I’ll participate on insatgram.

    Hello Jeanne,
    Great Post! I always find it interesting to see what other women carry in their purses. Great idea to carry Stevia packets and a healthy snack.
    Smiles, Paula
