My Purse x My Pencil

While tutoring my kids, we have picture days, and they always insist that I join them! For which I'm thankful, because after a few days I've reconnected with one of my favorite flow activities (one of the steps to permanently increasing your overall happiness and wellness): drawing! I'm no van Gogh, but at times I feel I'm just as submerged. Anywho, as I was contemplating exactly what I should translate to my drawing paper, I instinctively reached for my purse to replicate random items. Conveniently, a while ago I got some requests to do a "what's in my purse post," so I figured I would execute this via doodles~ enjoy!

MAC x Hello Kitty
MAC Mekkup

1; NARS lipstick in Love Devotion, Rosebud Salve, Essie nail laquer in Mint Candy Apple
2; My new YSL lipstick in 19 Frivolous Pink! I adore it. It's extremely creamy, yet looks very matte, and lasts all day. I have a similar shade by Revlon, but needed a better quality version. I couldn't be more pleased n_n
3; MAC x Hello Kitty blush
4; Jane Be Pure Mineral Gel eyeliner--from experience, this works just as great aa MAC Fluidline and Stila Smudge Pot!--angled brush, MAC lipstick in Morange, MAC eyeshadow in Carbon
5; Powder, blush, and eyeshadow blender brush; falsies from an Asian mart, DUO lash glue
6; Black AA shiny denim coin purse & Hello Kitty pen
7; Assigned reading, Post-Its for annotating (no seriously, if I don't have these with me, I flip out!), iPod Shuffle

I think think only things I've left out are my cell phone and gum. Which are inexcusably uninteresting.
