What's In My Bag?

The lovely Vivian at Diamonds and Tulle tagged me to show what I'm carrying in my purse. Sounded like fun to me :)

Here's the bag! I've shown it in a couple of outfit posts before. It's a Coach Maggie. I believe it's in brass/plum and is still available. I like it because it's not too big but it holds a lot.
A look at the inside. As you can see, it has 3 compartments with lots of pockets. I like this because it helps keep everything organized and I love to be organized. I have plenty of bags where you just throw everything in and while I love them, it's a pain to dig something specific out. Not a problem with this bag.
The back compartment:
Franklin Covey planner
Jalda checkbook holder (I don't know WHY I carry my checkbook. I honestly write about 2 checks a year.)
Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet
Monogrammed notepad that I carry around to keep my lists on. Lists of what you say? Lists of everything.
What's in the zippered pocket in the back compartment: 
Band Aids
Band Aid Blister Block (this and the Band Aids for my bad shoe making decisions)
2 flavors of Listerine strips
ReNu drops for my contacts
Hair elastics

Middle compartment:
BlackBerry Bold
True Blue Spa lotion
Business card for my hair stylist and BFF Charli 
Sephora Beauty Insider card that broke off my keyring
Keyring with car key, keys, and cards
Front compartment:
Chanel sunglasses
Coach change purse that I keep makeup in
In my makeup bag:
Thierry Mugler Angel solid perfume
This rotates, but I usually keep a lip gloss, lipstick, and lip butter type thing in here. It just changes depending on what I'm using that day, and sometimes doesn't change for days/weeks/months on end. The Korres and Smashbox have been there since... January I'd guess. Hey, sometimes I get stuck on something. For all of 2010 I've been going between 3 different MAC lipsticks which most people would have trouble distinguishing from each other (Creme d'Nude, Myth and Blankety if you're wondering). They're all in the pinky nude family. Yeah, I'm not very exciting...
Ok! Now I get to pick some people to do this, so I tag:

Happy Friday everyone!

It's always fun to look inside other people's bag. And I always say that the personality can be determined by looking at the contents of the bag. I say you are a stickler of cleanliness and freshness... imagine having different kinds of breath freshener in there. :-)

I did my bag post sometime ago and the things inside my bag have not changed yet.

Here is the link...

Have a great weekend! xoxo

I'm quite jealous, because you are very good at carrying the essentials. My bag is a disaster about 90% of the time.
Love that bright bag!
