What's In My Purse?



I love seeing what is in other peoples bags, I think it shows a lot about people especially when if its clean/messy and if they have tons of random stuff. I think if you look in my purse it shows I'm just a big kid at heart. The bag was $12 on sale at Von Maur and I think it was originally $35 about two years ago. I use it everyday and if you had seen it sans cleaning, you would see movie ticket stubs and concert tickets and lots and lots of receipts because I never empty my purse ever.

So what is inside:
Gushers (I like to always have a snack)
Excel Gum in the flavour Polar Ice
Nivea Milk and Honey Lip Balm
Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine
MAC lipstick in Innocence Beware from the Venomous Villains Collection
Comb from Sally's
Estee Lauder Lip Gloss in Pink Glaze
L'oreal Jelly Balm in Plush
Barbie keychain and keys
Hair Clip
Ariel coin purse from H&M kids section
Ariel and Aurora tins from a vending machine that holds Advil and Gum
Coach Wallet
Evil eye keychain charm that broke, but I got it in Greece and am too scared to throw out
Vinegar and a Straw from Harveys ...?
Mint from Boston Pizza
Tooth Picks (by GUM rubber-tipped so they dont hurt, love.)
and Batteries

Yes this is all currently in my purse, but with receipts and kids meal toys that I get all the time and only take out when my bag gets too heavy hah I am a 21 yr old child.....

Pink Popsicle Lips

The second that I slapped this lipstick on all I could think of was it made my lips look like just ate a pink popsicle. It is a Boots N7 Moisture Drench lipstick and extremely creamy. I purchased it at Shoppers Drug Mart, and they were getting rid of all N7 products, so I hope other Canadians are able to get there hands on this lipstick. It feels high end and I was able to get it and Sienna for $2.50

It feels very smooth, it doesn't feel waxy or have a strange texture, the taste is pleasant and it doesn't dry out my lips or emphasize flaws like dryness, cracks etc.

Its just a very comfortable lipstick that I had to tell someone about and I highly recommend it because it is affordable and I want to try more wearable everyday colours of the moisture drench line.

Its my first N7 product, feel free to comment if you have tried these and what else from this brand is good!

Maxi Dresses

I'm officially obsessed, this is from H&M and I purchased it 2 weeks ago for $19 but it is now onsale for $10

Maxi dresses make you feel free, if you want to just frolick in the sun, a maxi dress is the item to do it in. They are also extremely versatile because depending on how you accessorize and the style of the dress itself it can be dressed up or down.

Here are also some photos floating around online of maxi dresses that I love..

Ins and Outs

so if you ever followed lollipop26writes blog, Laura used to do these and its kind of like a favourites but shows what youre loving and not...
so here goes:

Blogging: so I'm officially going to start blogging again, for real this time, its summer
and I think about posting and take pictures but never end up putting them up, now I will.

McDonalds Caramel Ice Coffee: these $1 drink days are a killer, but so good. If you tried the Vanilla and weren't a fan, try the Caramel!

Being productive: Since I have been on summer break since May, I did absolutely nothing except go on twitter, tumblr, youtube and blogs. Until now when I started babysitting, you realize how short the day is and get things done.

Shorts: I never really wear dresses or skirts, but once it gets hot out (which it definitely is now) I break out the shorts and have been LOVING white shorts.


Sleep: although I've been enjoying this whole productivity thing, getting up at 7am is not my thing

Makeup: I've been leaving the house with just mascara and bronzer everyday

Youtube: I used to make videos under AlsMakeup and I wont say I'll never go back, however I read a blog about how what you put online is a representation of who you are and you should own it, I feel like a lot of times though I was relatable, I came off as an airhead talking about how bad I want my hair to grow for 10 mins, so they are privated for now..
