LOL, don't get me started on this kind of posts! it's not weird to have a clementine in your purse, i have the same stress relief lotion .. although a friend gave it to me last year during a busy time at work, it was the whole set with the air freshener, body wash and sheet spray. must've been a real hectic time, ha ha love your bag, what kind is it?

E said...

Thanks for sharing. I think it's so fun to get a peek inside other people's purses. Cute bag, too.

What an excellent idea - a bag/blog crawl. Your bag is lovely - I love the colour and form. Warmly hope you are well;-)

liz said...

I love your contents! So minimal but essential, lovely, and it a coordinating color palette too!

Gracie said...

That is utterly awesome! I love glimpsing into people's bag. I find it so interesting to see what you carry around.

Your bag is so beautiful!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i love smelling books so much that i have been known to refrain from buying a book that i REALLY want to read if it smells the slightest bit unpleasant.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

I love that you have a clementine! And it adds such a cheerful colour to your amazingly monochrome possessions. I'm not doing one of these though.. I can't imagine anyone wants to see my random manky tissues and inkless pens that make up my bag!

Collette Osuna said...

LOVE your cute fruit....you and I have the same #7....Im up next week.....too cool!!!

Sympathy for The Devil said...

ellie said...

so organized. very cool bag.

ivy's closet said...

I'm always interested to see whats in the bag..but does anyone ever carry any treats? Like an apple or godiva chocolates..just had to ask? Because, its great to treat yourself some thing on break time. I usually, keep Lemon Lift tea bags.

better days said...

I always forget to bring a planner, but then I don't ever have to plan much. Very cool look inside your bag.

lucy and sarah said...

I've been wondering what kind of camera you use. I really wish I had a good one. & how do you keep that iPhone so clean?

Emily Jane said...

Your bag is beautiful and the contents so neat!!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

What fun! I love love your bag, right up my alley. I often have a banana in my purse so I find the fruit quite normal. It's neat that you have an ipod AND a book in there. I am listening to a book on tape on my ipod right now so I just combined the two. You know Krystal I think you're adorable!

Erika Grover said...

cute purse! Your so organized it seems. Mine would be gum wrappers, some hot wheels (courtesty of my 3 year old) coupon book tattered & maybe some looose change lol

Alleen said...

I was visiting other purses yesterday, LOL! Too cute and I carry granola bar(s)...always good to have a snack! xoxo

Ashley Hasty said...

Thank you so much for participating in the blog crawl!! I've had so much fun reading everyone's posts and getting to snoop inside their purses! I don't think it is strange to have a clementine, the last It's In the Bag post I read had a banana and an apple!! So you fit right in! :)

styleonthecouch said...

I think you can tell so much about a woman from the contents of her hangbag. You seem very organised!

I love that you carry a camera around with you, I do too, it's also a very old one, just in-case I want to capture a moment...

abigail oliveros said...

wow, I'm surprise how much people comment on your post in less than 24hours. anyways, yes I did get a snow day but I didn't waste a single minute of my morning. After I dropped my sister to her kindergarten class I walked straight to the woods, camera in hand, to start taking pictures right away.

Stacey said...

It's been SO fun seeing everyone's bags! Love yours!

Ashley said...

why are clementines called clementines? Just something to ponder.

Love your little purse cause it totally reminds me of LONDON!!!!!! I miss London.

monster cakes said...

I'm drooling over your bag. UH-mazing. And I've never tried blotting papers simply because I never knew anyone that could give me a recommendation on them, so thanks! Now I shall try them.

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

geeez - even your bag contents are artistic and pretty. you're so stylish!

in complete agreeance on #9. and no, i don't think a clementine is weird. i stash snacks in my bag constantly. i just wish they were this healthy...

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

crap! i got distracted and forgot to answer your question.

the treasury challenge isn't specifcally for valentine's day. i'm on a (couple) treasury team(s) and this was a challenge - to curate based around one selected item. they're really fun to do, and you don't have to be on a team to participate.

and thanks for your vote! :)

Sarah B. said...

I love the color of your bag! Too cute!

kristine said...

Such a classy bag with classy contents! Yay fellow iPhone user :D

Travel Nurse Extraordinaire said...

Cool blog idea. It is fun to find out what people keep in their purse and a good way to find a new great item to covet! Lol. BTW the clementine is not wierd at all. If it was old and rotted then yes.

You're very organized. I would be ashamed to show a picture of what's inside of my bag. You'd laugh.

Charlotte said...

Wow, your purse looks so... tidy! Where are your keys and junk? ;)

Also, I love that you mentioned you like to smell your used books because I sure do too!

The clementine is not strange-looks fresh.
I'm with you on the smell of books.

Nnenna said...

Such a fun idea, I love seeing what's in other people's purses! I love smelling old/new books and the clementine isn't weird, it is smart to carry around a snack! :)

Lady Grey said...

I love that you carry a clementine.... I'm such a snacker too!

Great post!

Kelly said...

wow, what lovely things you have inside your bag ♥

Adrian said...

Love the bag!

Anabel Fournier said...

This post made me smile. Seems like we bloggers have a lot in common. It does not matter where we live or where we are but we share the love for photography and almost all the time carry our cameras or at least a camera that has the right size to fit in a handbag. Nice post!

Jammer said...

I love your bag! Everything looks so nice and organized lol.

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

This time of year I always have a clementine in my purse, its my perfect snack before lunch. Blotting papers are a must but if your ever in a crunch and need to blot use the toilet seat covers in public bathrooms.

Stephany said...

AHH! I want that planner so badly. I saw it on Etsy about two months ago but still haven't bought it. It looks cute!

And I lovvvve your bag! Love it, love it!

Lynn said...

i love these "what's in the bag" posts. such a creeper am i, wanting to peek inside, it's like the best medicine cabinet tempt ever ; )

love the clementine addition, not wierd at all, we know you're getting your vitamin c's now! girl, i adore those blotting papers, so good. thanks for sharing.

Sonja said...

Why is all the stuff in your bag so cute!?
My bag is mainly filled with receipts floating around that I keep forgetting to dump out hehehe
Glad to see you're back!
Thank you so so much on SUCH a sweet comment for y year in review post! :o)
So nice of you to say!

PS your planner looks amazing...a list based planner! genius! :o)

this is me. said...

it's even better when you get a good deal on a bag that's not a brand name.

Pilar said...

Love the bag! After my hiatus from the blogging world I was so happy to have a bunch of your posts to catch up on :)

Also, I am absurdly in love with tangerines, mandarines, clementines so I don't think it's weird to keep one in your purse, just in case!

xoxo

The Clementine made me smile. I love it.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Your bag is so organized! I love it! I also love how you have a color scheme goin' on!

LivingTheVogue said...

Cute purse! I would have thought that you didn't carry your iphone and ipod in the same bag. Since I've had my iphone I've completely let go of my ipod... Another thing surprised me; you don't carry tissues in your purse? I thought it was a basic item for us women? ;-)

ps: Thank you for your comment!

Chuzai Living said...

Your bag seems so organized. Clementine!! I LOVE them. I tried to clean up my bag the other day, but I still have way too many things and it looks like I'm going to a sleepover. Sigh.

Buckeroomama said...

Nope, a clementine in your bag is not weird. =)

I think if I ever do one of these posts, I would have a really loooonnnggg post --if it's one of my regular bags. :)

Emilie said...

I've done a post like this before and I always love when other bloggers do it too! It's so cool to see what's in other girls bags!

Catita said...

oh! I love this type of posts! And I never saw the one from March :(
The bag is really cute, reminds me of the one from Marc Jacobs and the clementine is totally cool! I could use a dozen now with my cold and the Vanity Fair vintage book too! I am sure I'd also love the smell of it ;)
