Life According to Ginny: What’s in My Purse? Edition

April 27, 2016


Hi Friends,

Ginny Here.

Life at 22 (almost 23) is crazy.  As a recent university graduate, my life consists of going from one job to the other and hanging out with friends. True to my busy Gemini nature, I’m always on the go… And I love it.

In today’s post I am going to share with you the contents of my purse. Because every female has some sort of purse, (tote, briefcase, crossbody bag, etc.) to carry miscellaneous items in while on the go and I want to share mine with you.

*Disclaimer: I must admit that this was a great way to clean out my purse. I recommend it to everyone…it was very therapeutic!


First thing’s first:

The Purse:


I got hold of this faux tan leather purse as a second hand investment from a friend. It’s a great “everyday” purse as it’s deep, lightweight and holds a lot of stuff.

Super fashionable? No.

Does it compliment my outfit and serve it’s purpose to store things? OH YA.

I would love to invest in a beautiful designer handbag for the future.. but as a student, it’s not a priority. I find it rather silly to invest in a $300 purse, only to have $20 in it. Personally, I would rather have the $20 purse with $300 in it, but that’s just me. 😉
