What's In The Bag

Happy Wednesday everyone!  This week I have my first guest blogger for the What's In The Bag series! I am SO excited to have Amanda here and have her share!!

Hi Pink and Fabulous readers!  I'm Amanda and I blog at Kids and Cabernet.  I write about my two kids, decorating, mom life, my favorite wines, and fashion - basically a little bit of everything. When Lindsay asked me to be part of  "What's in the Bag" series, I was excited to be a part of it, I always love seeing/reading what people have in their purses - I'm nosy I guess!

In my purse you'll find an array of things.  Before I had kids I used to be the girl that would change her purse depending on her outfit, but now I pretty much stick with the same bag #aintnobodygottimeforthat.  Right now I'm rocking one of my favorite Kate Spade purses.  I love Kate Spade and think that she makes some of the prettiest, most unique bags.  They all have personality and I like that, and since my purse is striped, I feel like it adds some flair to outfits, in an effortless way.

So what's in my purse you ask...???

  1. Belvita cookies for the kids (or myself)  - I always try keeping a snack handy just in case anyone gets hungry or I need to buy some extra time at the store with the kiddos
  2. My iPhone 5s - I have the gold one.  I always keep it in my purse and handy {who doesn't?!}  
  3. Crayons for the kiddos - you never know when someone will want to draw/color and this girl likes to be prepared
  4. Toys for J - I like to keep a couple of random toys in my purse so when he gets tired of what he has I can whip something else out
  5. My wallet - I just recently switched to this small wallet and I'm LOVING it.  It prevents me from hoarding extra papers and receipts
  6. Mints... does this need an explanation ;)
  7. Antibacterial wipes - I'm a germaphobe and I'm always wiping the kids' and my hands 
  8. My small makeup bag.  After taking a picture of it I realized I'm in need of a new one, I've had this one for so many years.  Inside you'll find lip-glosses, lipsticks, a mirror, nail file, and nail clippers
  9. A small journal for jotting things down or extra paper for the kids if they want to color/draw
That's it!  Nothing too exciting.  I try keeping my purse as neat as I can.  With two kids it's pretty hard and sometime I find the most random things in it.  Downsizing on my wallet helped a lot, also cleaning out my purse every 1-2 weeks does too!

Thanks SO much Lindsay for having me!  I can't wait to read what everyone else has in their bags!


  1. Love the striped Kate Spade bag! I have the gold iPhone 5S and it is so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up with a case! I finally caved and ordered a clear case like yours - should be here tomorrow!

  2. I love that bag! Your purse is much cleaner and neater than mine. I have way too much stuff and this reminds me that I need to clean it out. I used to switch purses all the time too, not anymore. ;)
