Yes. I am giving this bag AWAY. I bought it. I used it. I didn't use it very much. So it's pretty much in perfect condition. And I don't use it any more. So, uh, now it can be yours. YOURS.

Also, (and here's the fun part) it is going to come to you FILLED with stuff. What sort of stuff? Well, cool stuff, that's what sort. You know, purse stuff. That sort of stuff. The sort of stuff you keep in your purse. Because yes, during the two weeks that the giveaway is on for I am going to fill the purse with, well, stuff! Perhaps, say, lip-gloss, and maybe a used paperback, maybe some stockings, and perhaps a wallet... Who knows? I don't even know. All I know is this: I'm going to have fun.

And hey, guess what is even MORE fun, I am not going to tell you what's in there. So when you win you will find out when the purse arrives. YES. It is that much fun. Though I think I will tell you some things as I buy them. A couple. I mean, you all already know there will be lip-gloss in there (I need to pick up some new lip-gloss up, so I might as well pick up two! YES. One for me and one for you!). Now I gotta ask you, does it get any funner than this?

Yes. Yes it does. Because here is how you enter:

1. Well, you have to be a follower. If you are not a follower already: trust me, you'll like it; I'm tons of fun and super special.
2. You have to tell me what's in YOUR purse. Right now. Quick go check (or guess). You don't have to tell me everything. But if you have something especially bizarre in there I'd really like to know!
3. When you win (and you will win, well, one of you will) you have to post a blog post about this giveaway and tell everyone what the purse contained when you received it. I will put a link up on my blog so everyone here can know too. (I told you it was fun!)
4. One more thing, only comment once, or it will mess up the random number generator thing.

Okay. Yeah!! I am already having so much fun!!

  8. you are so cute! great giveaway!

    my purse is a mess....and HUGE! The bigger the purse the more crap I can fit in there =)

    changing pad
    loose change
    at least 3 lip glosses
    cell phone

    and anything else I can fit! my husband has a tendency to think my purse is a trash can too so I always end up with wrappers in there for some reason...silly boy.

  9. K, right now there's oddly hardly anything in my purse--I checked and found an eyeliner tube and a lipstick cap, and a grocery store receipt, lol. But next to was my wallet and a package with some baby wipes in it all wrapped up in a plastic grocery store bag. These two items were in there last night but ended up on the table this morning. I carry the baby wipes around a lot because I've found they're great for removing eyes makeup smears, and whenever I try to wear eye makeup it ALWAYS smears! There are times that I have pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in my this was an unusual moment, lol.

    That purse is wonderful! I am a big fan of green and I could surely use a nice new purse!

    Thanks Kim for sharing all you do.. your blogs are always a joy to read! Good luck picking a winner... :)

  12. You are so funny Kim! I haven't used my purse in about 9 months now. (who can seriously carry a purse AND a diaper bag anyway? Obviously only people a lot trendier then me), so the contents of my purse represent my old life....The problem is that in my old life I LOVED purses, so I have four. My black clutch is empty, it was from my wedding day and other then touch up make up and tissue, it didn't hold anything then either....
    My red (favourite) purse is almost seems I cleaned it out recently in preparation for using it again, but then motherhood struck). However, it does contain: A scratched "Vacation For Life" Lotto ticket (it seems I won another ticket, and really should go get that new ticket just in case I am a big winner...), HA HA HA ~ it also has the receipt for that kitchen garbage can of ours with the blue cardboard still on it!!!!!!!!! (It seems we really had no intention of keeping it!!!!!) There is also a shopping list and a fortune from a fortune cookie that says, " You will step on the soil of many countries."
    My next purse has a LOT of receipts, 1/2 pack of Tropical Punch POP ROCKS (remember that delicious candy??), some grocery store coupons (arrg...all of which could have been useful had I been using my purse, but are now expired), some temporary tattoos, a recipe for homemade chocolate, a "Breastfeeding Information Guide" book, a nail file from *sniff, sniff* the pedicure I had at the Empress Hotel just before I gave birth(...that was a good day), a pair of 3D glasses (from ICE AGE 3D, the last date night we had alone before Rebecca), my old favourite watch that needs a new battery AND strap, two loose earings, a tylenol, some broken M&M's (also from afore mentioned date night), and finally a small tin of lip gloss.
    And Lastly, my fake Lois Vuitton purse has: HIP HIP HOORAY, our LONG lost spare set of keys to our car!!!!! Aaron will be so happy (this exercise is obviously something I should have done a long time ago!!), an old "Our Daily Bread" devotional from June, Juy, August 2009, my name tag from a teachers conference I went to at West Edmonton Mall last year, my collective agreement manual from my last school district, a church program from May 31, 2009 from our Northern Alberta church, a roll of scotch tape, a pile of stickers for marking students' journals, a shell necklace from Hawaii (a souvenir from someone else's holiday.. man I would love to go there....), another TON of receipts, the top of a baby bottle, a AAA battery, some loose tylenol, a magnet that says "Good Dog", a tampon (YES, Finally someone admitting to having a tampon in her purse), a chapstick and finally and BEST of all ~ three hand wipes from Hooters. One says, "insomnia is nothing to lose sleep over," another one says, "if you can't be kind, be vague," and my last words of wisdom from Hooters : " Indecision is the key to flexibility".

    SO there. All the exciting details from my past life. But the thing is, that green purse would be a great addition to my future life...ESPECIALLY given that it will be full of fun and interesting things from you. I love green. I love purses. I love Soren. I love you........

    Pick MEEEEeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! ALso, I would give you the temporary tattoos AND the Hooters hand wipes in exchange :)
