A little Burt's Bees booklet (thrifted) with a mini Sharpie (gifted) and a few of my business cards (for sewing; alterations etc.) are what is stowed away into this little canvas wallet-like book. Next I have a few lip products; two E.O.S. lip balms (love these SO much!), and a Burt's Bees lip gloss that are just easier kept in the bottom of my small tote than in my "real purse". Two more items complete my carry-on like bag, a pair of head-phones and a tin of green Tea Leaf mints (local natural food store). These items are now put into the crook of the bottom of my rounded-bottom bag, still leaving room for...
Oh, and I nearly forgot, my stash of lip products that are in my purse. What can I say? I love Burt's Bees products (especially lip). Anyway, you can see those below. Some of them have been gifts, but most of the time I splurge when they come out with something new for myself. As you'll see they get used quite a bit. :)
Most of the time if I'm wearing a certain color of either tinted lip stain or lip-stick I'll stow that outside of the zippered pocket and all the others inside of it, stacked up (just like the pic above shows) so that they can all lay flatly up the side of the bag.
When I'm not using this set-up, such as for a formal event or something easier to go yard-saling with, I'll take a small hand-carry/wristlet with just my lip color of the day, monies, and 'medicine' container.
Thanks for stopping by everyone! I hope I gave you a neat little over-view of what I like to have available to me while I'm out and about.
What do you like to carry with you the most?
Do you like Burt's Bees lip products?
