Take This Pink Ribbon Off My Eyes


✍ CURRENTLY WRITING FROM: SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA

My name is Jessica Samantha.  And I'm a "What's In My Bag"-type posts addict.

I think it's because you can tell a lot about a person from what they carry around in their bags?  Maybe it's because I live with myself, but I don't think the contents of my bag fully represent what my personal life looks like.  Which is actually not very good evidence for my original theory, but, yaknow.

My favorite posts are the ones from those manic pixie girls on Tumblr, or the artists and poets.  Those people are all over the place, so to see their cute pictures of organized stuff they find important to have with them at all times-- I want to be friends with all of these kids.

I'm still reading The Secret History by Donna Tart, but I'm still trying to refocus my energy into productivity, so I'll get there.  I carry a tin box that I bought in a gift shop on top of Mont. Saint Michel in France, and in there is my secret stash of candy.  Currently I have a bag of Everlasting Gobstopper's.

I have an unfortunate obsession with lip balm and lipsticks.  I abhor lip gloss, so what I'm missing in lipgloss, I hoard lipstick.  Lipstick lipstick lipstick.  Just look at the word, it's so fancy.  I have three different tins of Rose and Strawberry lip salve, I'm kind of worried for myself.

Ah.  So organized.

  2. I also do like very much that kind of posts. And YES, I think that what you carry in your bag says a lot 'bout you. I hate lip gloss too

  7. Ah man, how pretty the contents of your bag is! I can't help but feel that a true representation of my bag would look absolutely rubbish. A big bulky laptop, a couple of highlighters, a charger overpowering the few 'pretty' things. Your post is a good reminder to be more streamlined carry less! If anything for the sake of back health..

  8. thanks for stopping by my blog darling. and i really enjoyed this post. but i too, am a love of what's in my bag blogposts and youtube videos. i am intrigued by the title of the book you are currently reading and may have to order it on amazon - of course AFTER i am finished with all the papers i have to write for university which are currently weighing down on my head! i am a bit of the opposite. i wear tons of lipsticks but my lip glosses sort of just sit in a drawer aging and collecting dust. i saw in your last post that you will be trying to photograph and film more. that is also my goal for this new year. good luck with it!

  12. I love seeing what's in people's bags, but I'm afraid what's in my bag wouldn't say much about me... I'm basically a wallet-phone-keys and go person, haha.
