What's In My Bag? — A Modern Mrs.
If you frequent YouTube's Howto & Style section, you've probably seen at least one "What's In My Bag" video. I even did one for my first AMM video! However, I had never seen one on a blog before. That was until I stumbled across Pink Bow's blog {I think via HelloCotton}. Anyway, I really enjoyed her What's In My Bag post! Her photos were simple, but beautiful, and almost had an artsy vibe to them. I really encourage you to pop over to her blog and give 'em a look... after you've finished here, of course. /wink.

The bag I'm currently using is mark.'s Some Like It Haute bag in Gray. It's discontinued now, but if you're in the market for a new bag, check out mark.'s Hot to Handle Bag. It's regularly $36, but you can get one for $25 when you spend $20 on other products!

Alright, on to what's inside!

What's In My Bag? — A Modern Mrs.
The first few items you saw in the opening photo were my wallet and sunglasses. My wallet is Merona's Everything Wallet. It was $14.99 at Target, but this particular color is no longer available. {It is available in Black, Brown and Green, though!} I love it and highly recommend it if you like a checkbook wallet! My sunglasses are also from Target {similar}, but the pink case is from Walmart. I would much rather have a hard case, but I haven't found one that isn't too pricey or too bulky. {Recommendations?}

2011? Whoops! My day planner is really just a glorified bank deposit form case. {I'm too lazy/cheap to order pre-printed slips.} /shrug.

Ahhh, the miscellaneous occupants. Top left we have my car keys and two of our room key/ticket/dining plan cards from Disney. {I have no idea why they're in there....} In the bottom row, we have a Band-Aid Friction Block {for when I'm breaking in new heels}, some Glucose Tablets {for when my blood sugar gets a little low}, a bottle of Germ-X, a miniature can of hairspray, some Tic Tacs, a pen, and my Zune {which should have been taken out after our trip....}. Nothing too out of the ordinary here!

C'mon. You don't have trash in your bag? Honestly, this is on a good day! I'm shocked I don't have more! Let's see... some random receipts, some leftover crackers from our Disney flight, and a tissue. Seems legit.

These babies are from the interior zippered pocket. I always keep lip balm in there {though this one is empty....}, a calculator {to stay on-budget on grocery trips}, and contact re-wetting drops. However, I also have two MAC lipsticks, a MAC Plushglass, a Lancome eyeliner, MAC Blot Powder, an empty contact case and some Visine for allergies. The extra makeup is for packing something to touch-up and just never getting around to putting it away. /sigh. I'm really not as lazy as my bag makes me look! {Or am I?}

If it were Spring or Summer, my cell phone would also be in there, but when it's cold I keep my cell in my coat pocket.

Well, that's everything! Would you like to see another in the future? What's in your bag?

Psssst.... Don't forget to hop over to Pink Bow, and tell her I sent ya!
