What's in My Purse

I've been wanting to do a post like this forever, and since I recently got my sassy new Fossil bag (!!!) in the mail, I figured now would be the perfect time to show you guys all the junk I've been hauling around in it before it inevitably becomes full of receipts, gum wrappers, and thousands of bobby pins. Keep reading to see what I keep in my purse! 

As of right now, I'm trying to only carry the bare essentials around with me. My wallet is from Target, and it's really convenient because it expands wide enough to hold my phone when I don't want or need to carry my entire purse somewhere. Next, my white notebook (also from Target) has been my savior recently. I talked about it in my "7 Ways to Get Inspired" post, and it's seriously been a game changer as far as brainstorming and planning go. I don't go anywhere without it now! I'm also super excited that my planner from Rifle Paper Co. fits so well inside my purse (and it matches beautifully...because black is the best), and it's really helped me keep up with my (occasionally) crazy schedule. I obviously carry my keys in my purse, which are on a black leather strap from Forever 21 that could quite possibly be one of the best and most convenient purchases I've ever made. I'm really proud of myself for that one, to be honest. My sunglasses and sunglasses case are both from Francesca's, which I bought before my cruise last month.

I also have a few random items thrown in my purse, including my cherry chapstick (which I hardly ever leave the house without), oil blotting sheets from Kroger (because I'm oily and cheap), my phone charger (because I sit on my phone 24/7), a big bobby pin, my all time favorite gum (which is Polar Ice from Extra...it's the only kind I buy because it's the only kind I luvvvvv), and a Sharpie pen for writing down all the random thoughts constantly zipping around my brain. 

Thanks for reading! What's the most random thing you currently have in your purse?
