I love a good meme only I can't remember who tagged me for this one. If the tagger is reading this, please let me know so I can link you! The meme: show the contents of your purse—NO CLEANING IT OUT FIRST. Here we go!
My purse. No really, it was made just for me.
The contents (starting at the top left and working across): thin maxi (JIC--much less embarrassing if it falls out of your bag than a tampon. See, I'm thinkin'.), Oust, lipsticks etc., perfume, hand lotion, Turkish beads, wallet, green note pad, The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan, phone and case, Za powder foundation/compact, Clean Well (for after visiting the library), iPod, keys, black address book (I've had it for 20 years. I'm old skool.), pens, sunglass case, gum, tissues, hair brush (not for me, for the girls since I am forever brushing their hair in the car).
Now let's get upclose and personal.
First generation iPod. Weighs about 37 pounds. J. gave me the case for
a Valentine's present. It's white leathah, laydeez. From Coach. He was listening back in the day when I said I would love to wear all white like J. Lo and go to Diddy's party in the Hamptons. Notice I ripped the tag off but the plastic
circle thingy remains even years later. Klassssy. Notice also that I don't have
headphones for it because I keep losing them which pretty much renders
my iPod useless. Unless I get mugged and need to whack my assailant
with a blunt object.
Lipsticks because you always need the right shade with you: school-safe neutrals (Laura Mercier, Clinique, Sonia Kashuk), goin' out red (Bobbi Brown), lip balm (Laura Mercier). Oust
because I have a thing about stinky public bathrooms. Yes, I carry my
own air freshener. Perfume (Summer by Kenzo) in case you have to unexpectedly have to go
somewhere public after the gym. Hand lotion because my hands are constantly dry. I am nothing if not prepared.
A book everyone should read, especially if you are close to your father.
Autographed by the author, even.
And there you have it: my purse.
