the dibers said...

Lovely! I have several must-haves, but I think the most important is a pen and pad of paper. I always seem to need them while I'm out and about.

Elisabeth said...

three cheers for handmade.

middleofthetable said...

in my purse, i must always have a camera, but i don't think it would fit into this pouch. but i'm addicted to lip gloss and i just bet that might fit ;)

ashleyrwatts said...

For a purse I have to have a pocket somewhere so I can keep my easy-reach things (like a pen, chapstick, phone)...well, easy to reach!
For a pouch it has to be about the size of my mascara, so that I can put my little makeup things in...or maybe just my license and money if I need to :)

CGGI said...

-keys
-cell phone
-journal
-camera
-medicine (tylenol, motrin, alergy -meds ... because you NEVER know!)
-dental floss
-mascara & bronzer


I did a post awhile back, but my must haves are still the same! You can see it here:
