We've all seen the cute girl, Starbucks in hand, with the perfectly-positioned crossbody that's just big enough for a breath mint and some lip balm. Heck, you may be that girl and, if you are, I've got mad love for you. I tried — and failed — at being that girl, but I'm just a suitcase-sized purse gal at heart. I need ALL the room for five different glosses, an oversized cosmetics bag, my filled-to-stuffed wallet and even a tablet (no, seriously!).
And, while women are mostly protective over the contents of their handbags, from scented lotions to flavored gums, I'm letting you inside the world of the "big bag" girl by exposing my top 12 favorite items that I carry daily — and that end up at the bottom of my purse. Sneak a peek inside my bag — with my permission — and see what you think.
