What's in my bag?

I haven't done one of these posts in forever, so I thought it'd be a good filler post. To be honest, my life has been pretty boring lately. It's been cold, gray and drizzly in Michigan. The only daylight I see is through the windows at work (I'm a full-time graphic designer for anyone who doesn't know!) and by the time Eric and I get home at night... we cook dinner, eat, watch Christmas movies and play with Winny. I've also been catching up on cleaning the house, organizing and getting Christmas gifts ready but that's about it! I'm really looking forward to a long weekend and especially the new year. I just always associate it with a fresh start, which I need. I'm only going to do one or two more outfit posts for 2012, so I'll be posting personal recaps, top outfits and other things to wrap up the year. I just want to take this time, get everything caught up and ready, enjoy downtime with my friends and family and then start 2013 with a fresh perspective and hopefully new motivation. But in the meantime... here's a little peek at what I tote around all day. Have a great rest of your week!


(sunglasses, markers, keys, lucky mag, earplugs (for too-loud punk shows), notepads, thank you notes, my carpe diem journal, lip gloss, lipstick, myDROBE mints, eyeglasses, ralph perfume, iPhone case)

  2. Those glasses are so cute. I know those who need glasses tell me I'm wrong when I say this, but I have always wished I needed glasses. What's in bag is slightly more messy, lots of loose coins and diabetes stuff (Lollies, insulin) and less pretty things, for eg. a wallet from when I was 9, yikes! I need a new one!

  4. You have the cutest things in your purse! I've been wanting to do one of these posts on my blog, but I need to get rid a TON of receipts first. I'm excited for the new year as well!

  9. Is it dorky that it made me smile to see you're using the pad and pen I sent you? Yep, it is ;) I love these kinds of posts! And your 'boring' life sounds pretty wonderful to me, Tiek :) Enjoy your downtime, lady!

  12. I love a good 'what's in my bag' post. I find them fascinating for some reason. I have to say that with my new puppy I have baggies of treats, small chew toys and puppy wipes...then wet wipes for my klutzy self. I hope the holiday season is invigorating for you x

  13. I carry earplugs around too! Except I find myself wearing them for naps more than punk shows, which is what they are in there for. Ha!

  15. Tieka your life sounds lovely... dinner, x-mas movies, spending time with the one you love + Winny. Ah, so fantastic!! And I can't wait to see all of your re-caps, they're always such great posts. Lastly, enjoy your quiet time with friends & family over the holidays! I'll be doing the same!

    Wishing you an amazing (almost) Christmas!! Hugs & smooches! V

  16. I love your actual bag! What brand is it? Or who's it by?
    I personally don't mind about brands, but figured it may be one.
    But you carry much more than I do! I just have my phone, glasses case, and maybe some lip balm. And my wallet.
    But I love seeing what others have in theirs, I always think it shows what goes on in their day to day lives. That's just me trying to sound smart. But maybe it's true?

  17. This looks incredibly set-up. Everything in your bag is nice, don't get me wrong, but it seems a bit unrealistic and too "perfect." Love your honest posts Tieka, lets see more of that :-)
