Inspiration board : It's in the bag.

Alright ladies, it is time for a little Spring cleaning... and that includes our bags. Do you ever feel a bit like Mary Poppins? Like you just have your whole life in a bag, it might take you a while to find the specific thing you are looking for, but there is no doubt that it is in there. Or the best is in the movie One Fine Day when Michelle Pfeiffer magically produces two super hero costumes from materials found in her purse. Hilarious! And so true.

I am the queen of losing items in my bag... and even worse is that I employ my husband to help me find what I am looking for (so he is all too aware of the crazy mess). Inevitably it is in some black hole found deep in the corners of my oversized Marc Jacobs purse. Ooops. The worst was the one time the item I had lost was my wedding ring, we searched everywhere, and for some reason, unbeknownst to me, it was in the front pocket of my purse?! Anyway, because these incidents are happening more frequently than I would like, I am making a serious effort to organize and de-clutter. I hope you find it inspiring for you too :) This could be the start of a revolution... maybe...

1 : Love this bag... could it get any bigger? I have one similar in black and it is my 'go to'. The color is nice also because it is almost a grey, meaning you can wear it with just about anything!

2 : These wallets are the best! They have the perfect little compartments and the prettiest lining inside the coin purse part. I thought the pink was fun for Spring!

3 : Remember this? Fruit Stripe gum, the flavor only lasts for about a minute, but it is a fun treat to carry around :)

4 : Done and done... as soon as I saw this phone cover, I had to have it... and I could really care less about what my phone is dressed in, but this was just too fun.

5 : I always have some Kiehl's hand lotion in my bag, it is the best for cold dry weather. A necessity when I was living in Colorado. If you have not tried it I swear by this stuff...

6 : My mom always carried vaseline with her, and what do you know... so do I. I use it on my lips, cuticles and to remove eye make up. Need more reason to carry it with you? Here are 50!

7 : Sometimes I will bring along my make-up if I know I am going to be gone all day and will need to 'put on my face' before a special dinner or something. HA! So I keep all my make up in this little bag, then I can easily just toss it in my purse if I need.

8 : Having our own small business I have learned to always carry around our business cards. You never know who you might bump into!

9 : Like a spa treatment... for your lips!

10: I am slowly... VERY SLOWLY trying to grow out my bangs. Such a pain, but I am becoming super creative with bobby pins and these are too cute.

Hey Shelby! I sometimes get to read your oh so cute and fun blog. I just wanted to say that I totally remember your mom always having Vaseline... Haha. I would never have thought of it until you wrote that. She is a smart lady, and I really understand now that in coloRADo. It is an essential item. Hope you are well in Cali. We just bought our first home in Denver and are enjoying decorating it. I'll have to check back for good ideas from your blog:) - juli

I LOVE MY HOBO WALLET. and i seriously am the same way with my purses, they are always big and full of crazy things: first aid kits, 3 different kinds of lotions, 2 pairs of sunglasses etc. plus it weighs approximately 15 pounds.
