Day 28: Inside my purse

Day 28: What's in your backpack, computer bag, or purse?

Well, seeing as I no longer have a backpack, and I don't keep my computer in a bag, I'll have to disclose the contents of my suitcase purse.

Wallet: TXDL (driver's license- expires in 11/11), CPR certification, 3 debit cards, my University of Texas at Arlington ID, my Six Flags 2011 Season Pass, and my Ameristar Casino Awards card from St. Louis, along with a plethora of change (I love the word plethora), a local library card, a UTA bookstore card so I can check for when caps/gowns come in for graduation, a Sprint store card, Lincoln, Hamilton, a medication list & 4 coupons for VitaminWater. It's one of those flat wallets too (master of putting lots of things in small places...my purse isn't spectacularly large!).

Makeup/Prettying up stuff: Maybelline Mineral Powder (brush separate), which I wear when I wear makeup, which is when I need to look decent. I have four different colours of eyeliner- sapphire, emerald, glittery pale blue & charcoal, silver eyeshadow, clear mascara- I thought it would be useful with my eye sensitivity, but not much, CG powder compact with mirror for when I get paler in the winter, the palest concealer that exists (cover up that ugly mug), lovely maroon nail polish, clear polish, a compact mirror, two Chapsticks & a Blistex, bracelet my dad gave me, 3 sets of nail clippers, several sets of hair ties, and a hair clip.

Scents, Skin Treatments: Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme, Clean & Clear Persa-gel 10% Benzoyl Peroxide spot treatment (thanks, I actually need some right now), C-Thru scent with beads, coconut/lime scent- typically I have lotion, but it's lost since the whole recarpeting thing.

Other medical stuff: A backstock of each daily prescription in case I miss it in my rush out the door, asthma inhaler, OTC eye drops, Vicks vapor inhaler, tin of Sudafed and Benedryl, Dramamine, Midol, 2 vials of albuterol (hey, they can't charge me for them if I supply them), 5 tampons of 2 different types (you asked! For your sake, I didn't picture), *altoids...*, bottle of ibuprofen, medicated blistex.

Various: A pair of glasses to drive at night (I wear sunglasses during the day), spare keys, 2 pencils & 2 pens (just to be safe), several Arizona pomegranate green tea mixes, a flash/jump drive, a reference to UT Southwestern Medical Center, various coins lying about, a pack of Extra (watermelon), hand sanitizer, Lysol disinfectant spray, a lighter (not a smoker, don't know why I have a lighter), and a phone charger (not pictured because it's charging my phone).

As you can see below, I don't have that large of a purse, but sometimes I fit various other things like deodorant or a hairbrush (don't ask how I fit it in there, I just do!).

The contents of my purse vary quite frequently, so I doubt that this will last very long. About the only thing that remains regular is the contents of my wallet, and even that will change soon, as my drivers' license expires soon, I've graduated from the university, my Season Pass is going to expire soon, those coupons will expire soon, etc. There you have it, you have seen inside my purse. Not very interesting, aye?

Hello there, fellow Texan! I don't know about you but I am glad this heat may be breaking this coming weekend. LOL

I thought I had a lot of stuff in my purse! But I also carry medicine in my purse. In fact, I have aspirin and sinus medicine. And if it fits, my humongous hair brush. I don't know if its a Texan thing, but we always have something near by so we don't have to drive all the way home to get it.

New follower by the way! Feel free to check m blog out- http://edgeofinsane.blogspot.com
