Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips

Whenever I have a larger purse in tow, you can bet I have my Cuyana leather pouch full of necessities with me. I’m one of those people who likes to feel over prepared so I keep a few things handy at all times. Today I’m sharing a few of the things I can’t live without when it comes to stocking my purse. Side note: these photos were shot at the most darling French cafe, Maman, that you must try! For their beautiful coffee cups at the very least but also for the delicious quiche and divine looking treats!

Vaseline Lip Tins

I always, always, always have something at the ready in my purse to treat dry lips and recently it has been these perfectly cute and super effective Vaseline Lip Therapy Tins. (I’ve been toting both the rose + original versions.)When I was little my mom used to have Vaseline at the ready for anything and especially when we were in Colorado and all of our lips would get so chapped from the dry air. Now Vaseline has just introduced their lip tins to the U.S. and they are somewhat addicting to use. Especially the rose one. Rose is my favorite scent of all time and I love the subtle hint of color it gives while getting the job done of moisturizing and healing. Not to mention the cute, compact tins make these easy to take anywhere with you. You can pick them up at Target.com or in your local Target.

For those moments you don’t have tissues or hand sanitizer handy, these lemon towelettes are a god-send. They smell amazing and are perfect to wipe your hands or any surface before you touch it.

Eye Drops

After one too many times of needing eye drops and being without, I finally bought a small bottle and stashed it in my leather pouch so I’d never have that “I really, really need eye drops right now but they are at home” feeling ever again.


I actually hardly ever chew gum but I do keep it handy on the off chance that I ever need to have a piece to freshen up my mouth before a meeting at the end of the day, a drinks date or for when I feel stressed.

Blister Packs

For anyone who has gone to work in a new pair of shoes, you know that horrible feeling of breaking them in. Throw a pack of these cushions that stick on anywhere you feel a blister comin’ on.


What can you not live without in your purse? Spill in the comments!
