a bag and a tag


I got tagged! The sweet Trishie of Under Lock and Key has tagged me. So, now I have to show you all my bag and it's contents because we all know that a girl's bag and it's contents says a lot about the girl!

1. I am a recovering bagaholic, so it was hard to choose just one! The bag I chose is easily one of my faves. It's handmade from a vintage table cloth.
2. Makeup Bag. Purchased from anthro for 8 bucks!! what a steal :)
3. Lip balm. I am a lip balm junkie! I have very sensitive lips and can only use a few select lip balms. Vaseline is perfect for my sensitive lips.
4. Smith's Rosebud Salve. Absolutely the best lip balm out there, I have been a fan for 10+ years. Soothes dry lips, calms and heals irritation, soothes the sting of minor burns. Can even be used to treat diaper rash!
5. Laura Mercier lip stain in hibiscus. I don't use lip gloss (too sticky!) and rarely wear anything on my lips besides lip balm, but when I do, I use this lip stain. It's perfect to wear everyday because it gives my lips a natural hint of colour.
6. Clinique Superbalm. I told you I was a lip balm junkie!! this was made for me... lip balm with just a hint of colour.
7. Mirror/Brush. Who knew such a thing existed? I snapped this up from Target and loved it so much, I bought one for me, and one for each of my sisters.
8. My wallet. It's designer and expensive. But I love it and that's all that counts right?
9. My phone. I am not a techy person at all, but I feel naked without my blackberry.
10. A Tide Pen. Can't leave home without it...especially if you have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. 11. My Sharpie pen. Did you know that Sharpie made pens? Well they do and they are awesome. 12. My datebook/notebook. I open this at least a dozen times a day; to write appointments down, jot down ideas, my to do lists, contact information, birthdays, the list can go on and on

What's in your bag? I tag: Lita, Sharon, Carla, Jen, Sandy , ProjectVee and Chicka-san.

Make sure you come back to this post and link up in the comments so we can all read about your bags!

Blackberrys are the best!! I have the pearl and I'm going to upgrade to the bold pretty soon. So excited! That rosebud salve is great. Have you ever tried Korres lip butter? I've been using that for years and I LOVE it.
