What’s In My Tiny Purse

Besides old receipts and movie tickets, just a few necessities I can’t live without!

img_0343-1Heart Shaped Sunglasses

Ashley Tisdale is my inspiration for this look. She is the ultimate California girl which is why I adore her style so much. I got these from Avalon Exchange in Lakewood, Ohio. This store is amazing! They sell gently used, designer clothes but they also have an excellent selection of brand new sunglasses, jewelry and other awesome accessories.

eos Hand Lotion

I obsess over their lip balm and was stoked to see that they have a lotion that is small enough to fit in my purse. It smells amazing and makes my hands feel so smooth.

Crisp Morning Air PocketBac

This is the cutest little anti-bacterial hand gel I have ever seen. It’s made by Bath & Body Works of course. My work bestie, Niki, gave it to me after I asked her to use it multiple days in a row. Thanks, girl!

Ulta Blackout Gel Eyeliner

I love shopping Ulta’s line because it works well and is reasonably priced. This pencil glides on my lower eyelid with ease and goes on very dark. I keep it in my purse for touch ups throughout the work day.

smashbox FULL EXPOSURE mascara

I got this little sample in my ipsy bag. I don’t typically shop the smashbox line because I tend to stay away from the more expensive products. ipsy allows me to sample products that I wouldn’t normally purchase so the $10 monthly subscription is totally worth it. This mascara makes my lashes both long and full. I might even splurge on a full-sized tube.

Chevron Card Holder

I wasn’t even sure what to call this item because it’s a hand-me-down from my mom. I am always leaving my credit cards places they do not belong; my pockets, the car, my dresser. She was tired of telling me to put my cards away so she just gave it to me. Surprisingly, I love using it. If you’re like me and could use a little bit of organization, I highly recommend it.

Aquafina Lip Balm

I picked this up in line at the drug store for $1. I ended up falling it love with it. It’s a balm but goes on like a gloss. It also has a minty tingle to it which is soothing for dry lips.

Hair Tie

Who doesn’t need one of these? It comes in handy when I just can’t deal with having my hair down. It’s also nice hiding one in there for those days when I lose literally all the hair ties I own.


Last but certainly not least, pain killers. Headaches, cramps, you name it, I get it! I’m a working mom with two dogs and a husband so I need these at all times. ❤

Everything in my purse is inexpensive, even the purse itself, $12.99 at Marshall’s! If you have anything in your purse that you want to share or think would be helpful, leave it in the comments!
