What’s In My Purse?: DIY Edition

Let’s dig into the depths of my DIY purse to find out what I keep in it.

Normally these “what’s in my purse?” posts are sponsored and contain product placement but you won’t be getting that around here! Everything you see in my purse is a real object that I paid for myself. Including the DIY bag!

The contents of my purse haven’t changed much since my video of the same name except this time everything’s being tossed into a smaller bag.

While almost everything I carry is a pretty regular thing, I’m gonna break down each item for you so you can get some better insight.


Show me a person of modern society who doesn’t carry a phone around and I’ll show you a liar.


Currently obsessed with Lippie Stix by Colourpop. I’ll be gushing about them in a future video so stay tuned!

Compact Mirror

I haven’t quite mastered being able to apply lipstick without a mirror so I have this mega old compact that helps me out. I bought it from Claire’s about 10 years and I’ve never seen another one just like yet. (If you have, hook me up! Mine is in mega disrepair)

Retainer Case

I’ve still got 3 months left with the Smile Direct Club program (you can watch my latest update here) so as long as I’m still wearing aligners, I gotta keep a case in my purse for eating out!

Business Cards

How radical are these?! Of course I’m the kind of person with cassette tape business cards. I found the design on Moo and I’m head over heels for them!


As mentioned in my last thrift haul post, I’m still searching for a small wallet because otherwise my money/id are just left loose in a bag like this. Not cool!

It’s amazing what can fit in such a tiny purse, huh? Let me know in the comments what you keep stashed away. Feel free to link me to your own purse post as well!

Also, please be sure to Pin & share this this post with others if you thought it was awesome!

Those business cards are so much fun! Love it!

I’m a lipstick, lip balm phone and cc holder type of gal. I like very small handbags most of the time.
