If you're looking for Transformations and Treasures, it's taking a hiatus this week for a fun theme party.
T & T will be back next Wednesday for room makeovers, home decor and thrifty finds.
This week we're having a Purse Party at Pink Postcard!
The reason behind this party is that I have lots of bloggy friends who I wanted to include in a party here- foodies, family bloggers, etc.
This is just purely for fun- a way for us to all get to know somebody!
And let's face it. We're girls.
We like to check out what each other is wearing and accessorizing with! :)
A purse / handbag / clutch / wallet- whatever you carry is a very personal statement about you and who you are- so write up a post about your purse (or a favorite / unusual one if you carry for different outfits and occasions) and show us YOU!
Be creative!! (it was tougher than I thought, but I know you've got some creative juices in there to make this an interesting and creative post!) You can even do this as part of a What I Wore Wednesday type post- with an outfit.
This doesn't have to be your main post of the day, just write up something to link up here, and make sure you link back so others can join in the fun.
I will leave this open through the weekend!
Here's a snoop through my purse:
I carry this one all the time. I do have other purses, but I pretty much stick to the same thing most of the time. Maybe for an occasion I will switch it out.
It's an Ecco Red.
I love it because it goes with everything and most of my outfits- dressy or casual.
My main grab in my bag is probably yours too- my wallet! I adore it. I get a lot of comments on it! It's so cute, and I love the line- it's called Dumpling Dynasty.
I also have a big beach bag that is with the same art- love!! If you are curious about the wallet you can find it here. I noticed they changed the design a bit, but so adorable.
Receipts receipts receipts!!
I seem to always have a mess of them floating around in my purse. There's even an old grocery list and some Target coupons mixed in....
My primary lip wear... These are the ones I go to the most. There are probably two more tubes floating around the bottom of my purse. I typically wear neutrals or pinks. I love the Lip Glass, but I'm really not much of a gloss girl. I prefer lipsticks. The glosses are always too sticky and I am always fishing out my windblown hair out of my lips!!
One thing you probably didn't know about me is that I have allergies. Mostly seasonal- I'm allergic to tree pollens. When I was being tested a few years ago they discovered that I also had food allergies stemming from the seasonal. Now I can't eat Hazelnuts. :( Do you know how many yummy desserts and chocolates have Hazelnuts in them??! I also had to give up fresh peaches and nectarines. Two of my very favorites. I carry these epipens around with me in case of a food allergy attack.
The Minimergency kit has nothing to do with health emergencies- mostly of the hygienic or fashion type!
A plethora of hand lotions.
The mini Lysol spray is for when I use a public restroom that isn't smelling so fresh. I got this at the checkout line at Target.
This tiny little measuring tape was my grandma's. I love that I have something of hers that I carry with me everywhere. She was a seamstress and would use it to measure things when she was out and about. It comes in handy for measuring furniture at thrift shops.
I don't particularly enjoy carrying around all these frequent shopper cards, but I do.
My business cards in the mix also- I really need to get a hard case to carry them in.
These are all stored in a pocket here:
...Right next to my phone! I don't have to dig it out from the bottom.
That's me, as defined by my bag!
Who are you? What do you have to have with you at all times?
