Kindle Fire Giveaway: Share a Peek in Your Purse on Pinterest

   By SheSpeaksTeam  Apr 24, 2012

A woman's purse or handbag is as iconic as her shoes. We all have our own tastes and styles, but what about the mystery and style secrets that are held within?

We're all familiar with how the contents of a bag can be a perfect harmony of all your daily needs stylishly met in a cute package. But what we don't often discuss are the organizers, clips, coupons, gadgets and the select few pieces of make-up that get to ride with you all day. You may also have some small but essential items that have become the glue for your day. It may be anything from a protein bar, a band-aid, or a picture of your family, but to you it's a must-have in your bag. Whatever you keep in your handbag, we'd love to hear all about it!

In this week's giveaway, if you share a peek in your purse on Pinterest as a video or picture board, we'll enter you for a chance to win a shiny new Kindle Fire!

It doesn't really seem a stretch to suggest that perhaps how we keep our bags is an extension of our personality. Is that true for you?  Are you someone who throw's everything into your bag until it's overflowing or do you have different bags with different functions that you switch between? Perhaps, you have an optimal number of items in your bag that you never go over. 

So is it the organized mind or the organized bag that helps us to keep our bags from turning into the abyss and avoid the constant searching for keys, wallet, or cell phone. We all have our story when it comes to our purse and we'd love to hear yours. For some this will be therapeutic for others a purge and of course we're hoping to pick up some tips on great products and ideas for a better relationship with our bag.

For some inspiration, we love this video by KatrinasBlushing.  She shares some great products and a few clear, self-imposed rules, like never carrying make-up - just lipgloss!

I found a zip lock from my last trip at the bottom of my bag. It has a squished up protein bar and crushed goldfishes. Yuck!

Like a few of these other ladies, I don't carry a purse. I can fit everything I need in my pockets. I would totally enter if this contest wasn't only for women who carry purses.
