Blogmas Day 16: What's in my Handbag

This post is going up a bit late today because I'm still ill, and since it's Sunday, I've been quite lazy.  I did decide to take some photos of what's in my handbag the other day so that's what today's post is about.

My Bag is from Baghaus and it was a birthday present last year so I'm pretty sure they don't sell it any more but it's by Urban Expressions. It has 2 large zipper compartments, and one in the front under the buckles, 2 little pockets on the inside of the front large compartment, a zipper one in the back large compartment, and 2 side pockets that snap.

The larger items I keep in my bag are my Keep Calm and Carry On blog book from Barnes and Noble and Moleskin Pen, Kenneth Cole Reaction Wallet (Similar), Sushi Makeup pouch, Kate Spade Glasses, Nook Simple Touch with Kate Spade cover (sold out but they still have Jack Spade Covers) and my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Band aid box.

A close up of the little things you can't see:

Lancome Hand lotion (free gift with purchase), Liz Earle Hand Repair, Thymes Eucalyptus body lotion from a birchbox, OPI Black Onyx, Mirror that was a Christmas Gift from a friend, 2 halloween Bath and Body Works PocketBacs , and a neat square hand Sanitizer my husband brought me home from work, ring from (which now seems to be defunct) and Earrings from Charlotte Russe.

I hate being anywhere without something to read and since my phone isn't nook app friendly (not enough space!) I keep my nook with me. The glasses are for reading only, and I absolutely adore them. They're black on the outside and have pink polka dots on the inside. I think the blog book is self explanatory. If it's not, there's a post explaining it here. The band aid box is a relic from when my husband and I started dating, I cut my finger while we were out and he bought me ninja turtle band aid's because nothing soothes a paper cut like Michelangelo.  The wallet I got for Mother's Day from my husband because I hated the one I had more about that here. The Nail Polish is just random, thrown in when I meant to paint my nails at a friends house but ended up being to busy to. The Pocketbacs should be obvious. The Jewelry I had on one day and it was getting on my nerves so I tossed them in my purse. Which brings us to the lotions. I'm a knitter, and if you don't keep your hands moisturized you can get calluses which I don't want so I've got lots of lotions stashed everywhere.

I'm actually going to be doing a post on what is in my Sushi pouch tomorrow because I don't want this post to get too long or too link happy.  If you're wondering where all my makeup-y things are, I'll give you until tomorrow to guess.
