Surprisingly, I've only ever caught a sexual act once while driving through a neighborhood and it made me blush.
Before anyone gets upset, I am not a Peeping Tom nor do I stop and stalk people. It's just a weird, random, 3-second thing that amuses me if I happen to be driving past houses on my way somewhere else. Though, I always tell Andy that when I die, I plan on coming back as ghost and spying on the mundane parts of people's lives.
So it should be no surprise that it fascinates me when bloggers do a post of what they carry inside their purse or bag. I love that rare peek into the private yet mundane. And since I now have a fancy lady grown up purse, I thought it'd be fun to do my own. :)

I was online trying to find a cool coffin-shaped bag to put make up in when I came across this coffin-shaped purse. I fell in love with it immediately but sat on it for a couple of weeks before finally treating myself to it. At $52, I've never spent that much for a bag and I never pay full price for things that are a want vs a need. And a purse? I've never carried a purse. How would I fit all my things in it?

So I made a list of the essentials I thought I would need when not at work and realized I could make this work. Everything else could just go in a tote bag when needed.
This is everything that I carry in my fancy grown up lady purse now... minus my phone. My phone slips into the front pocket of the bag but I used it to take the pictures so I don't have a picture of my phone itself.

My R2D2 wallet from Loungefly fit perfectly! That was important. And, of course, the stuff inside the Ipsy bag are not essentials but I like having them with me, just in case.
I just got the perfume roller and am loving it. It has a beachy, coconut smell which is yummy and makes me feel like I've been outside even though I avoid sunlight like a good little vampire bat. LOL
In the tote bag (which changes almost daily) I always have my tablet, my medications, my wedding planning list book, and a zippered bag with pens, notepads, Aleve/Tylenol, etc. Other stuff moves in and out depending on my mood. And some days, like today, I leave it at home because I don't foresee needing the contents while at work. I just throw my meds into my lunch bag and call it good.
What are your essentials that you carry in your purse or bag or pockets?
