ELLE and Revlon are celebrating beauty as it relates to female self confidence, personal style, and being prepared for any of life’s challenges. They’ve curated unique “power purses” (valued at $3,000 each including bag and contents) with several being “dropped” in diverse locations across the country and some simultaneously being virtual and available to all. They’ve asked me to show A Girl’s Gotta Spa! readers what’s in my purse.
My bag: Big Buddah Jimmy Hobo (snagged it from ideeli!)
My wallet: Felix Ray mesh clutch
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta (snagged from Marshall’s for $10!)
Necessities: Orbit Gum (fresh breath is always in style), notepad and pen (I’m totally old fashioned), HTC Evo (not really a fan, but can’t live without my phone), scan card to get into my youngest son’s preschool, Model Mirror (CobraCabana)
Makeup: Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush (Coral Reef), Revlon PhotoReady Bronzer (Bronzed & Chic), Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (Sweetheart/Valentine), Revlon ColorStay Smoky Shadow Stick (Flare), and Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara Waterproof (Blackest Black.)
Hand cream: Lifetherapy in Escape (cannot live without hand cream!)
Perfume: Elie Saab (the most heavenly, feminine scent I know of)
Lip balm: When I don’t feel like wearing lipstick or lip gloss, my lips are wearing Coconut Pearls from Pacifica
Sentimental Value: An antique makeup mirror given to me by Kathryn Finney (I don’t use it, but carry it with me everywhere because it’s a special gift!)
Purse-uit of Power Contest:
As I mentioned, ELLE has curated a number of designer purses, so no matter your location, all you need is the interwebs to get in on the action! Bag drop locations will be revealed on Revlon’s Purse-uit of Power tab on their Facebook fan page. When visiting the tab, you’ll be given access to drop location clues where you will find out the exact location of the bag. Figure it out, make your way there and there will be a pop-up experience for everyone including Revlon samples, makeovers, manicures and more! Additionally, you can play the instant win game that can be played every day to win products. Every time you play the game, you’ll be entered for the chance to win the designer bag ($3,000 value) online!
What’s in your bag?
