it's in the bag!

switching things up just slightly on this monday morning!  instead of the usual grateful + blog love post (which will show up here later today!), i'm starting off with my entry in the "it's in the bag" blog crawl hosted by ashley of a hasty life. *thanks to ashley for inviting me to join!*

since i live in chicago, this is the winter edition of my purse (ie ski hat and gloves?  check.  sunglasses?  nowhere in sight!).

1.  my everyday bag.  nothing fancy here, just simple and professional-looking.  i'm pretty sure it's actually from target.  big enough for everything i need all day + any work files i have to take home or around town.  i stopped using nice bags because i beat them up too bad.  they are now reserved for special occasions!
2.  tic tacs.  i usually go for mints over gum.  
3.  my crackstick.  i. am. obsessed.  
4.  sephora makeup mirror, always comes in handy.
5. chanel's rouge coco lipstick in mademoiselle (finally bought it for myself!).
6.  ipod nano.
7.  monthly cta bus/el pass.
8.  my current read: the happiness project, by gretchen rubin, which is actually a reread!  i'm clearly in love with this book, and the start of a new year is a perfect time for a refresher.
9.  my calendar.  my life blood.  stores all the information that keeps my life running smoothly.
 10.  vera bradley pencil/pen/highlighter case.
11.  of course, the cell phone.  nothing fancy, but gets the job done!

12.  NILS sportswear hat and grandoe gloves keep me warm and toasty all winter.
13.  one of my most important possessions: my Panasonic Lumix camera.  it goes with me almost everywhere!
14.  my Coach wallet.
15. travel hairbrush for inevitable hat hair.
16.  williams-sonoma hand sanitizer, a stocking stuffer from this past christmas.

for more in the bag goodness, take a peek at miss social's post from friday, as well as teaching in heel's bag tomorrow!

  2. crackstick indeed! The more you use it, the more you need it!!!

  3. I've never read that book, I'll have to swing by the library after I finish my current book!

    I am addicted to Burt's Bees chapstick. I MUST have it at ALL times!

  4. I've seen a few people doing this particular blog crawl - love the idea! I still haven't read The Happiness Project, I need to get to that very soon. It seems like such a fantastic read. And loving your Chanel lipstick!

  5. I wouldn't be able to get through any day without sunglasses here in SoCal!
