My Favorite Game: What’s In Your Purse?

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 10.45.09 AMIt has been FAR too long since we’ve played this game. So considering it is basically a holiday weekend, we’re doing it, dammit.

Let’s play WHAT’S. IN. YOUR. PURSE. (I REALLY need to come up with theme music for this bad boy and maybe get one of those super skinny microphones a la Price is Right Bob Barker years) 

So let’s see what is in my lovely Rebecca Minkoff electric blue tote, shall we? (isn’t she a beaut?)

1. Wallet (clearly … also I really need a new wallet, any recommendations? I’m stupidly picky about shit like this, too.) 

2. Floating one dollar bill (I’m awesome)

3. Sparkly case where I keep my lipsticks/lip glosses … that is empty … because all of my lipsticks/glosses are currently living at the bottom of my purse (that’s what happens when you’re lazy and don’t use the zipper, moron)

4. Six lipsticks/glosses, ranging from NARS to Rimmel London by Kate Moss (my current fave), to Butter London

5. Le Spec shades that make me happier than anything else in life right now

6. Le Spec shade case that is currently not housing my shades because, again, I’m the worst

7. My fancy little old lady pill case (every lady should always have Advil and Pepto pills on her person at all times, you heard it here first)

8. Mini emergency kit. Oh wait, you just randomly got your period? Hold up … let me whip out my teeny tiny tampon for you … BLA-DOW. (You have no idea how many times this thing saved my ass)

9. Fiji Water bottle (:::hair flip::: because I’m fancy as fuck)

10. Apple ear buds (because if I had to listen to people’s convos on the train everyday you would need to commit me)

11. $1.32 in change (that’s not annoying at all)

12. 2 random blister Band Aids (because working in new sandals is a bitch)

13. A Sharpie pen (I mean … is there any other pen in the world? I think not.)

14. An opened thing of travel tissues that are gross and should probably be thrown away

15. A random dudes business card (because I get drunk sometimes and like to make friends)

16. A used tissue (lay off, man, I have allergies)

17. SEPTA train pass and PATCO train pass (they are like Metro cards but cooler … suck it, New York)

18. A hair tie and hair clip (because I’m a woman)

19. And finally … a weird, awful, mysterious dust that lives at the bottom of my purse (hence why I need to throw away my tissues). I don’t know what it is, really. It’s not like I keep full baguettes of crusty bread in there daily (although that’s a really good idea…). But it is always there. Always. I was soothed when I saw another blogger write about it as it made me feel like I’m not the only dirtbag who continuously has this weird, nameless shit living at the bottom of her purse. 

So there you have it, kids. Unfortunately I don’t have anything weird to share like a whip, or a dead man’s toe. 

But I DO want to know the strangest thing that lives inside your purse. Tell me, tell me, tell me. 

What’s In Your Purse?

Screen shot 2014-05-05 at 6.36.04 PMSometimes when I wake up on a Monday morning, I feel like the only thing going on in my brain is a tiny monkey in a Sergeant Peppers-like outfit banging together two symbols under a tree. That’s. About. It. Insert copious amounts of caffeine stage right.

So as I was sitting on the train this morning, pondering what I would dazzle my readers with, I began thinking about how I literally lived out of my purse this weekend (yep I was a bag lady), which means the weekend debris in my purse is usually epically random and strange … and sometimes gross. One time I found a hard-as-rock no longer soft pretzel in the bottom of my purse. Stay classy, self.

Do you know what this means? It’s time to play one of my ALL-TIME favorite games … WHAT’S. IN. YOUR. PURSE! (Side note: I should really come up with theme music for this game. For the time being I’m stealing the Price Is Right theme song. Sorry Bob? Or … Drew? Screw it, it will always be Bob Barker in my eyes.)

I haven’t done this in a while, in fact, here is the last time I wrote about WHAT’S. IN. MY. PURSE! With that being said, this is an interactive game. I request that everyone reading this shout somewhere on social media, or to me, either or, WHAT’S. IN. YOUR. PURSE! Honesty is the best policy, no need to doctor up weird shit just to sound cool or funny. And if you have live animals in your purse, I WILL in fact report you.

So let’s do this, shall we? Cue the stolen theme music …

-A Stephanie Johnson sparkly makeup bag that I love so much I could make out with it, full of 10 … yes 10 … lip glosses and lipsticks (If anyone knows of a makeup rehab, let me know)

-A receipt from the restaurant Bricco (girl needs to get her carbs on)

-An H&M tag for a pair of flip flops I bought out of sheer desperation because my feet hurt so badly from the shoes I was wearing. Turns out the flip flops hurt more (note to self, $5 flip flops are Satan)

-A random $5 bill floating about

-Ear buds

-Vintage sunglasses that I covet

-House keys on a Las Vegas key chain even though I’ve never been to Las Vegas, nor do I know where said key chain came from

-Transit pass

-Tic tacs (fresh to death)

Sharpie pen (listen, I’m an extreme pen snob, if you ever were to steal my Sharpie pen, I would cut you)

-Another tag from an H&M sleeveless polka-dotted shirt I bought, impulsively, at the same time I purchased “Satan flops” because I was hot as balls in the shirt I was wearing (I’m clearly a traveling gypsy … and now a Cher moment, ahem: Gyspies, tramps and thieves … we hear it from the people of the town they call us … okay I’m done. I swear.)

-Receipt from dry cleaners

-A random three dollars (seriously, do I USE my wallet?)

-One bobby pin

-One mini hair clip

-$1.36 in change

-A mini sugar skull pillow that smells like lavender (it soothes me and it super rad … AND makes my purse smell delightful)

-Zac Posen wallet that I got for a ridic price at a vintage store

-Cell phone

And there ya have it. Definitely not my most random components to ever exist in my handbag, but still a little off. Now what I’m looking forward to is seeing what is in YOUR purse. Let’s hear it ladies … and gents. I will not say no to hearing what is in a murse or a “satchel” if you will.
