bag lady

last night Abi asked me to bare my soul (a.k.a. the contents of my purse) for her.    And although I did a similar post last year, it was fun and i’m doing it again.   so Hayati, here’s the scoop hula hoop.   (u like that one, huh)

bag – purchased from metropark.  tons of zippers, and black leather – just like the rest of my fall/winter wardrobe.

wallet – same wallet i been rockin for the LONGEST TIME, EVER.  Love, Angel, Music, Baby!    first thing i see when i open it is my card for unlimited eyebrow threading for the next three months.  if you dont know, educate urself!  that shit is CLEAN.

“The Lucky One”, by Nicholas Sparks –  bought this book in Hawaii a couple months back and didnt even open it when I was there.  I was having TOO MUCH FUN with the girlies.    so, I thought I’d bring it with me to LA this weekend just in case I had any downtime.  (doubt that)  I really want to read the new Dan Brown book, but my homie let someone else borrow it, even tho I was next in ine (yes Ariel, I’m talking to YOU.  not friends until Justin returns it.  and Justin – unlike, unlike, UNLIKE)

Hello Kitty Bank of America debit card – currently stuck in my book as a bookmark because I was reading, and contemplating buying something on line at the same time.  see, i can multitask! 

Keys- for the Tahoe, my hizzouse, my mom’s house, my in-law’s house, and my snowboard rack.  all on the same Coach Butterfly keychain I’ve had since 2004.

Cannon SD1100 –  cuz i’m still a camera whore.  and I have 5468435468743574 pictures to prove it.  

Monoi Oil – straight from Tahiti thanks to my Bakeries.   It’s currently replaced my hand lotion and hair serum.  right now tho, its frozen cuz its cold, but i sit on it for a little bit to melt the oil again.  lol.  and when under the sun, slather this on ur skin for that lechon/authentic polynesian look.   3 shades darker guaranteed! 

shades – i reflect the light of my own sun.    (right, soulmate?)

cigarette case – cuz the mirrored star that holds my capri’s is sexier than the white cardboard box it usually comes in.  plus, i can touch up my lipstick on that shit.

which brings me to my lip products – lipliner in beet, lipstick in rebel, burt’s beezwax, and concealer.      cuz i wore lipstick the other day and still havent taken em out. 

mini bottled water – cuz my throat be parched like a mofo.

iphone w/ an aaron kraten/hellz cover.   my phone is my life and its lasted me almost 2 years with just a few scratches.  amazing now how my son knows how to work my phone as well as I do.   the smartest kid! 

speaking of Adonis, I have his Jordans in my bag.    he randomly likes to take his shoes off, and then put them back on again.  i dont know why but whenever he sees these he screams “SHOES!  SHOES!” and gets really excited.   yep, thats my son alright.  

and a couple things that were JUST in my bag but didnt make the pic — a tampon (cuz i’m on my rag) and a granola bar (but i just ate it cuz i’m fat). 

th-th-th-th-th-th-th-tha-tha-th-THATS ALL FOLKS!    whats in ur bag?!
