what’s in my givenchy nightingale?

here’s my post inspired by the popular blog game, what’s in my bag.  to be honest, my bag is actually way messier than this.  i sort of cleaned up a little, but i kept some receipts in there as a representation of the usual mess (think double the amount of receipts shown here and random napkins i like to pick up for emergency cleaning… eek!).  what can i say?  i’m a total pig.  oink, oink!  another confession:  i switch between bags a lot, so this is what my bag would look like if i’ve committed to it for more than 2 weeks.

a couple of notes on the jun… er… i mean stuff in my bag:  i always end up keeping a piece of shiny bracelet in it.  you never know when you’ll need a little sparkle for a sudden night out on the town.  the scarf and gloves are obviously for when it gets chilly, but also if i needed to add a pop of color to my outfit.  i don’t usually wear them at the same time, since the colors and patterns kind of clash with each other, but if it gets cold enough… then i’ll make it work.  the fresh sugar chapstick, of course…  it’s the best thing i’ve ever put on my lips.  it’s so smooth and soft, it just melts right into the skin.  also, the bath and body works paraffin hand cream is a must.  it moisturizes so well without being sticky and it really does make the roughest hands feel like silk.  i’m kind of lazy when it comes to skincare, but these 2 products are definitely part of my daily regiment.

hope you had fun snooping through my bag!  if you have a post on what’s in your bag, let me know and i’ll be sure to check it out!

i was at a work function one time and my boss got up to make a speech. someone realized it was a big moment and no one had a camera. i pulled out my dslr and my co-workers where amazed! lol.

Haha! I did clean up a bit for the photos. It’s usually messier. I’m ashamed when I see how clean others what’s in my bag are!


Thank you for posting about your hand lotion. I swear, I have the most driest hands in the planet. It looks really scary if i I don’t put anything on them. I have to try the product you use.


Yes! I swear by it! I’m usually not a bath and body girl, but this is my absolute fav. And it’s cheap!
