Enjoying The Journey

What’s In Whitney’s Pocketbook?

I have a fun post for you all today! My new friend Ashley from The Grits Blog invited me to be a part of her “What’s in my pocketbook?” series and I couldn’t be more excited to join the fun! You know anyone who refers to their purse as a “pocketbook” has to be a sweet southern delight. 🙂 She believes the contents of your purse say a lot about you…let me know if you think that’s true based on what I’m about to reveal! 🙂

whats in my pocketbook

purse of choice The pocketbook I’m currently using is a silver Baggallini shoulder bag that was a gift from my Mom. Wasn’t that nice of her? She has given me several purses over the years that have been my favorites – they’re functional and hold all my stuff yet always get compliments! I only change purses every four months or so. Changing purses increases the risk of leaving something important at home, so I minimize that risk by sticking with a neutral bag.

I must have lipstick with me at all times. My lips are deathly white and I can’t stand the way they look or feel without lipstick. And yes, that comb is specifically for teasing, because the worst thing (after white lips) is flat hair. What am I revealing about myself? Ha!

purse details 2Yes, I need TWO containers of ibuprofen. Some days at the office are just like that.

boring stuff

I’m loving my little planner that I picked up at Target. It’s been super helpful to keep track of all my blogging details.

Does anyone else still carry their checkbook with them?

I hope you enjoyed this tour of my purse! I think it’s fun to see what others carry around with them. Be sure to visit Ashley at The Grits Blog for the rest of her pocketbook series!

  1. Pocketbook is an old name, just like Davenport is for the sofa nowadays. I get a kick when I see the old phrases used by ” Modern Millie’s” like you. I am constantly changing my purse to match my shoes, because that is the way things were done in Older times! It is a challenge to remember to put everything back into place. Surprisingly enough, I no loner carry a checkbook, I use my Debit card exclusively when I’m out and about. The checkbook is used at home when paying bills.
