How to Win a Scavenger Hunt.


Last night I searched through my purse and looked for something. You know, SOMETHING. The thing that’s somewhere in my purse––but I must sift through other necessities (“necessities” being used loosely because I’m a girl and slightly high-maintence). I’m an organized person, but I feel the urgency to carry everything I might need at any given time, Apocalypse included, so it can get the way of The Search.

When I was a kid I snuck into a baby shower my mother attended and they were playing a game. It was a scavenger hunt of sorts where ladies were broken into teams and had to find the items on the scavenger list based solely on what was in their purses. Since that day, I’ve been determined to win every scavenger hunt. Ever.

This is what a winner’s bag looks like…

The Purse – I adore this leather Madewell clutch…I’m pretty much a sucker for a good clutch and this one? Functional and adorbs.

The Bandaid – A necessity for any girl in heels.

The iPhone – This is a camera and I hate when it rings and gets in the way of taking a photo. Duh.

The Dimes – I keep random change at the bottom of my purse. It makes me feel like I have swag.

The Ticket Stub – It reminds me of happy memories and places.

The Bobbypins – For hot mess moments.

The Ring – Whist Christmas shopping, I bought myself this ring from Nordstrom and it makes me feel like a hippie from Flagstaff, Arizona.

The Camera Caps – I have no idea why these are in there, but HOLLLLLLA for my Canon gear.

The Pen – I will always, 100% carry a pen. If I could carry a quill I would because I like feathers.

The Lip Wear – I never leave home without glossage and this week’s colors du jour are Subculture liner, Beaux, and Ready Or Not!

The Memory – A zip drive. Just in case I’m needed by the FBI and need to transfer files at any given time.

The Necklace – Found this it at a thrift store and it fulfills my hipster urges.

The Scent – I love this petit parfum solide (I Made You a Mixed Tape) by Tokyo Milk and I never have to worry about spillage.

The Notes – The Tokyo Milk packaging kills me…die! Included are small note cards and I carry them around for emergency–yet stylish–communication.

The Book – I always carry reading material, but have yet to remove this precious book from my personage since finishing it.

Happy Scavenger Hunt Tuesday, y’all!
