What’s In My Handbag No.1

I think we’re all a little nosy and love to see what everyone likes to carry in their purses.  I am no exception.  As I love to read blog posts and watch videos on this, I thought, why not, let’s do my own What’s In My Handbag.

Since I’ve been on a rather tight budget lately, I shopped my own closet and decided to go back to an old favorite – my Coach Ashley satchel, with it’s signature print fabric.  For everyday, this size and color suits my needs and goes with my Ralph Lauren leather riding boots.


What I really love about this bag is that the medium size fits everything I need and I overall love the shape of this handbag.  I think it looks classy hanging on my arm.  If I really needed to, I can use the strap as a shoulder bag.

6. Cole Haan business card holder, which I use for loose change.

14.  Clear Eyes Cooling Comfort Redness Relief – this feels so good on my eyes after hours of staring at a computer screen.  If you like that menthol feeling to wake up – I recommend this eye drop.
