So what's in your bag? I truly carry the unaverse in my purse. 
But I do like to have order to madness so I made pockets for all the little things that I can't live without. 

Pens and band aids are always needed!

My iPad mini is always with me as well as earbuds. 

Nail file ans a small makeup roll. 

A large Eyeglass case made to hold both my sun and reading glasses. 
So here is a photo of my real purse with everything layed out for you to see. Other things I always have is some kind of snack (my current food obsession Trader Joe’s PB&J Milk Chocolate Bar ) my iphone, wallet, car keys. 

You can read how you can make your own purse pouches in the spring 2014 issue of haute handbags. 

Happy creating!
