Here I am with my glitter yet again. So I’ve had these plain brown Target “Uggs” since 2007, and they were looking a little ratty and stained.

What’s In My Bag?

Curious about what lies inside my bag? Sure you are! Nothing too crazy, but here ya go.Bag: Michael Kors Mirror Cross-body bag in Rose Gold
Wallet: Kate Landry. Yellow patent leather.
Little pouch: Betsey Johnson. Yes, this is a bag inside my bag. It holds oil blotting sheets, business cards, Zyrtec, Tylenol, and coupons.
Sunnies: Betsey Johnson. Fuschia with leopard print.
iPod Nano: Old Nano circa 2007. I use this to teach my fitness classes. Sad, but I would be a total wreck (I’m talking sobbing, rolling around on the ground) without it.
Little notebook: I write down meaningful quotes for my yoga classes in here. I also use it for writing down things at my nursing job.
Sharpie and pen: Mostly for nursing.
Elastic hair tie: Sparkly gold from this DIY post.
Lip balm: Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Tiger Lily.
Lip enhancer: by Jouer. I either use this or the Burt’s Bees. Both products on my awesome list.
Bobby pins: Cool painted ones as seen in this DIY.
Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Smog. A light, glisten-y brown with olive/gold undertones. I have the same color in UD liquid liner also. Beautiful color.
Lip/cheek stain: Cha Cha Tint by Benefit. Everyday on my cheeks! It leaves a natural peach/coral tint with a lovely sheen.
** Not pictured but probably should be: car keys, phone, some food item (nuts or cereal in a bag, banana), gum, stethoscope, and dare I say…Tampax.
