I don't know how I carried anything around before I got my hands on this Simply Vera Wang bag from Kohl's back in January. There are two dividers inside the bag with each divider being a zipper pocket allowing more room for all my goodies. One divider holds my wallet and the other my keys (which have not been photographed for privacy reasons). Clearly this bag makes it easy to keep things separated and organized, which is why I haven't switched purses in a while! Plus, it has the regular side zip pocket and two other pockets on the opposite side which fit my phone and iPod Touch perfectly. Now let's get on to all those goodies I mentioned...

If you're wondering why I don't just have a smart phone, it's because I don't feel like paying the extra thirty-something per month for internet, which is why I have a regular phone. My iPod Touch does everything an iPhone can. I just get free Wifi wherever it's available (including our home).

I'm pretty much obsessed with sunglasses. There's even an extra pair I like to keep in my car, just in case I forget mine. I've had it happen a few times before and it's a tragic experience. These are a great classic cat eye I got years ago from American Eagle.

This adorable polka dot case is the wonderfulness that conceals my ibuprofen, vitamins, and medicine if I'm sick. I found it about a year and a half ago at The Icing.

I'm a huge note taker so I always have paper and a pen with me. I also take my planner with me wherever I go. I use it to plan out our days which includes everything from errands and work schedules to blog posts and to-do lists. The weekly pages have very spacious sections to write in which I know everyone with a planner appreciates!

This red squishy pouch from American Eagle has been acting as my wallet lately. I have a silver Steve Madden wallet that I love but when I'm going to be out for long periods of time I try to make my bag as light as can be. It makes it so easy I just haven't switched back yet.

I was at Hot Topic last week and was thrilled over their new Disney cosmetic bags. There was no way I could leave the Beauty and the Beast bag behind. It holds everything I need and there's still room for more! Speaking of my make-up bag. Let's take a look inside, shall we?

Your makeup bag inside your bag has everything. I don't know why I don't carry one of those! I also have a pair of sunglasses in my bag and another in my car--just in case, lol. And I love that your iPod Touch does everything an iPhone would. Very smart.

I'm such a nosy parker that I love posts like these. I'm fairly pared down with what I carry in my bag most of the time just because I can't deal with carrying a heavy bag. I'm totally with you on the iPod Touch. It's such a money saver!

So... I need a smaller makeup bag for my purse, a better purse (been using the same one for 2+ years now and it's a mess) and a cute little circular pouch thing for things like ibuprofen. LOL I have an Ursala makeup bag for my regular one and I love it. The beauty and the beast one my sister would love!

Oh my gosh, I'm obsessed with your BATB makeup bag!! And it looks like it holds a lot of stuff. (I'm still using that leopard print one that Target's beauty samples came in - ha!)

I've been hooked on crossbody bags for a while now, but I recently bought a standard handbag because my crossbodies just don't have enough room for everything, especially a journal. I've been spoiled by the hands-free element of a crossbody, though!
