Show Me Your Purse, Oldest Shoes and Pomanders!

Ok, here’s the first installment of the Show Me Your (fill-in-the-blank) series, which originally began at Luxe Chandelier:

Ang from Football, Sushi and the Pursuit of Happiness asked to see my purse and some of my must-have purse contents. I loooove my big purses because I am a compulsive over-packer. I like to carry with me anything I may possibly need throughout the day, because a girl never knows what surprises the day might have in store.

I bought this purse with part of my first paycheck eight months ago. It's Nine West, and probably the most expensive item of clothing I've ever owned. It's gray leather (??) and suede on the sides, and it goes with everything.

Must-haves: vanilla-scented travel tissues, sunglasses, 30-dollar cell phone, vanilla lipgloss, vanilla VS body spray, Mary Kay makeup case, Mary Kay brush kit, and Cover Girl foundation and powder

 I will now introduce you to my secret weapon… my planner. It goes EVERYWHERE with me. It’s a personalized planner by Erin Condren.

Krysten over at After-I-Do asked to see my favorite thing in Cancun. She’ll have to wait, because I haven’t had a chance to catch a picture of it yet. 🙂 (I’m not sure going by request order is going to work!!)

MurdocksMama asked to see my oldest pair of shoes. Well, I didn’t want to embarrass myself too badly, so I placed them alongside my newest pair of shoes.

My high school gym class New Balances (8 years old), alongside my new Zingara sandals (can't live in Cancun without a few pairs of rockin sandals)

 There you have it. 🙂

I’m also posting the trial pomanders I made, which turned out GORGEOUS.

The one on the left was dyed in cinnamon tea, while the one on the right was dyed with Hibiscus tea with red and blue food coloring
