my mary poppins bag

also known as my purse. it doesn't hold nearly as much as Mary Poppins' bag, but i like to think of it as somewhat magical...mainly because i feel the need to lug it around every day. but it also has pretty much everything i need to entertain myself and/or the kids i'm babysitting. minus Legos. and colored pencils...
anyhoo. the contents!

1. keys. cute doggy keychain. cute monkey key covers. teeny flashlight keychain.
2. Robert Marc sunglasses. hemp sunglass case.
3. phone.
4. scarab bracelet. locket.
5. plaid wallet
6. leather change purse.
7. chicken and egg fabric change purse (i put random things inside of it)
8. snap change purse (my pressed powder is in it)
9. on top of my pressed powder pouch is a little gummy penguin pencil topper, yellow hair clip, silver bobby pin, and flower bobby pin that my mum crocheted for me.
10. my tubed makeup items in a row: Dr. Hauschka lipstick in Transparent Pink. Revlon lipstick in Iced Amethyst. Chapstick 100% Naturals Lip Butter. Alba pineapple quench clear lip gloss.

13. Secret deodorant in Powder Fresh (and a travel size! i'm kind of obsessive about deodorant...)

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
