Call me a nosy Parker, but one of my favorite things to do is rummage through my BFF's purse and seeing what fun new items she has in there, especially in the lipstick arena. Not only does she always have great beauty products to, er, borrow, I find it fascinating to see what other women carry around with them on a daily basis. (I'll never understand how guys can get through life with one tiny little wallet!) To satisfy my inner Peeping Tom, I asked some of my CafeMom colleagues to let me have a virtual peek inside their purses. But to be fair, I'll go first!
The interesting question is ... What do you think you can tell about a woman by what she carries in her purse?
37-year-old married mom of one 10-year-old daughter and freelancer for The Stir.
A wallet so over-stuffed with cards and receipts that it won't close; my Kindle; a "just in case" pad; wrapper from 3-D glasses; cap from a bottle of Hint Fizz water (so good!); 40 random cents in loose change; EIGHT lip glosses and lipsticks (why??); three pens; sunglasses not in their case; The Body Shop Absinthe hand sanitizer; Korres jasmine body butter (because I can't wash my hands without putting lotion on after); random Hello Kitty party favor; movie tickets from Monsters University (loved it!) and Much Ado About Nothing (snooze fest!); checkbook; two Clinique nail enamels; napkin with a drawing my daughter made; my poor, poor iPhone; program from my daughter's fourthgrade graduation (sob!); Brush On Block (amazing); one lonely bobby pin.
