Random – I swapped out my purses for the week so I figured I’d do one of those “what’s in my bag?” photos.

Camera / day planner / book for the train (this week it’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog) / sunglasses / cell phone / keys / etc.  It is easy to switch up my bags because all of the ecetera lives in that Brooklyn bag and can easily move from purse to purse.

Pens / gum / lip stuff / band aids / hair tie / hand sanitizer.

Salad and sandwich night.

What’s in your bag?  What items are always with you?

One thought on “Weekend Highlights + What’s In My Bag?

  1. Lip stuff for sure, about 7 of them! a luna bar or an apple, wallet, shades, hairclip, gum, keys. hand lotion, pocket knife, prescription bottle, and cellphone. maybe a book if i’m going to the dr. or have a free time at work. pretty standard.
    that arugula pecan salad looks amazing i’m gonna have to try something similar. love your fun meal ideas!
