Today I’m sharing what’s in my purse! If you’d rather watch than read, you can watch What’s In My Purse on YouTube here or scroll down to the bottom of this post and watch the embedded video! This post contains affiliate links.
I’ve carried this bag, which is a Fossil Preston Small Flap Crossbody Bag, for almost three years. I love it! It has lots of flaps, pouches, and zipped pockets–and it expands on the sides. I don’t keep a lot inside, just the necessities!
My wallet is the Kate Spade Cedar Street Lacey Wallet and I like how it has lots of storage on the inside, but a clean zipper closure. It’s the perfect size to pop my phone in and use as a makeshift clutch when I want to as well. Love it!
I keep a small PocketJuice external charger for my iPhone in an old Vera Bradley pouch. I can’t tell you how many dozens of times I’ve used this charger–I never go anywhere without it!
Sunglasses are a must-have for me! I’ve worn a pair of Ray Bans for years, and added Croakies so that I can wear my sunnies around my neck when I’m out and about.
Finally, my purse pouch. I love this thing because it wrangles all the little things I tote around with me!
I keep ibuprofen in a Humangear GoTubb, a pen, chapstick, hand sanitizer, a hair band, a hair tie, and two homemade essential oil rollers; “cooling” with peppermint EO and “relax” with release and lavender EO. I don’t go anywhere without them! Here it is all packed–tidy, easy to find what I need, and lightweight. Works for me! 🙂

This is from a year ago, so now its a bit different. I carry a back back that I got for Christmas (from better life bags, which I love) since the over the shoulder just got too heavy. But contents are about the same 😉 https://anoutstandingbalance.com/2016/05/09/whats-in-my-mommy-bag/

I recently found your blog after obsessively searching for Disney vlogs. I’ve really been enjoying reading all your blog posts. I’m just getting into essential oils and your roller oil containers have me intrigued. How exactly do you make them? What kind of carrier oil do you use? Also, I was reading how you make your own skin cleaning regime. I’d be interested in doing this also, but when I looked up the frankincense EO on the Young Living website, it’s super expensive. What kind did you use?
Sorry so many questions. Keep up the great job!

Hey Sarah! Thanks so much for following along.
For my rollers, I use about 15 drops of EO and then top it off with jojoba oil. (I get both the rollers and jojoba oil off of Amazon.)
I am *obsessed* with my skin care regime. My skin has never looked so good, ever. (Not to brag at all–I had adult acne for years prior.) Frankincense is indeed expensive, so if you’re interested in really getting into EOs, I’d buy the Young Living starter kit, which is $160 and comes with 11 oils (including frank) and a diffuser. To buy each item individually, you’d pay about $350, so it’s a great deal. I only use frank in my face stuff so it lasts a really long time! I wrote more about EOs here if you’re interested: https://blairblogs.com/2016/09/essential-oils-how-im-using-them-the-difference-theyve-made/ (I’m not a YL consultant, so I don’t “get” anything if you buy them, I just genuinely am obsessed.) Hope that helps!
What is the colour of your bag ?
Please le me know thank you
