Love in a Handbag

Today I was tagged by two fun loving bloggers. One tag asked me to spread a little love and the other to post about the handbag I used today. I think love and handbags go extremely well together, so here is my attempt to blend the bliss of both.

My bloggy buddy over at Tiaras and Tantrums is a fashionable mama with a closet full of handbags and a fantastically fun outlook on life. Any lady who can rock a PADLOCK on her Chloe handbag has got my vote for fashionista of the year!

Here are her rules:

1) "Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house."

I awoke at 5am to the sound of pellets hitting my house. It was hail! Today was one of the rare days in SoCal were we actually had some "weather." I toted my Burberry, because the purse I ususally carry is leather and "water + leather = bad words." This bag has held up against snow, rain, spit-up and cat pee (don't leave your purse next to the cat carrier on the floor of your car when you are going to the vet and your cat is VERY VERY pissed off.) A can of Febreeze later, I am able to carry it once again!




2)" I want to know how much it cost:) And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it."


The explanation for why I was carrying it being said, I would like to qualify this post with the fact that that is BY FAR the fanciest purse I own. It was a Valentine's day gift from HH three years ago, so I am not sure how much exactly it cost. I can tell you it cost way more than the Banana Republic bag I got on sale ($65.00) that I usually carry.

Just because, I included a picture of what's inside my purse today. I think what people lug around with them says a lot. Peak inside, make some projections. :)


3)" Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your diaper bag/non-diaper bag."

Let the blending begin!

Natalie at Little Shindigs has a blog with fantastic party ideas! You need to check out the pirate party pics, wow- I am in awe! Anyways, she asked me to tag bloggers that I LUV. That is totally hard! I LUV so many! But I am going to tag buddies who I think will have some interesting things in their bags. Yes, I am nosy. So here goes:

Summer @ Le Musings of Moi

Rachael @ Little Bites of Heaven

DiPaola Momma @ Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom

Jen @ Buried with Children

Bar-b @ I Heart 2 Girls

Generally I tagged peeps with two or more kiddos. I am interested to see what "tools" I may need in the future. ;)

You passed the test! If you can tell that was a Bliss bag AND you carry a Burberry (and I fooled you into thinking I go to the gym as much as I say I do)... then you officially ROCK and are welcome to show your badge in public. We will be sending out your authorzied cool chicks welcome box soon. In it you'll find the instructions for our secret handbag hand shake, comit them to memory and then burn. WELCOME
