Hi Christine!

…Well, aside from all my lip balms (I have around five different ones in my purse)…

Co.Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint No. 1138

I don’t really use those everyday, but they just happened to be in my bag.

I can’t believe you have five lip balms in your purse!

Chapstick πŸ™‚

Although I only wore mascara to work today, even when I wear a full face of make-up all day I never carry any make-up with me. I never do touch-ups… I don’t know why!

Haha or it might be because I am so loaded up with everything else in my purse! I am the “You name it, I got it” girl when it comes to the stuff in there. Everyone teases me, but I usually am the one saving their butts with the stuff I carry =) Plus, I am addicted to chapstick because my bad habit is licking my lips and biting them.

P.S.- You seem like the sweetest and most genuine person everrr! I just want to say thanks for all that you do on here. It’s so great that you take the time to read and respond to all of your comments. This is my first time commenting even though I read all the time, and it totally made my day to see your response. Take care and have a wonderful day!

Hey Stephani! LOL, I bet you are the go-to girl!! My boyfriend always asks me why I DON’T carry something!

Aww, thank you πŸ™‚ It made me smile and keeps me going!
