- I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

What's in my Bag
Here goes. An unedited look inside my ginormous bag. I'm curious myself to see what's hiding down deep.
I need a bag that's big enough to fit, well, my life. This bag is London Fog. It's red and shiny. I have a love for all things (fake) patent leather.
We'll start with the outside pockets. Each one houses one roll of glucose tabs. Nice hiding place, eh?
Inside: Hobo wallet, Glucagon Emergency kit, ReliOn glucose tabs (geez how many of these do I have in this purse???), small pink leather food journal, grocery shopping list from 2 wks ago, MAC lipglass in Clear, Curel Hand & Cuticle Therapy (not sure this is gluten free but am cautious not to put hands near mouth when using), 2011 calendar with a cartoon yoga chic on the front, orange-inked felt pen, individual Crystal Light packet in White Grape, MAC lip liner in Subculture, a dime, Aquaphor individual sized tube, Dex4 glucose gel in Berry Blast, MAC lipgloss in Viva Glam V, Bountiful, and Instant Gold, MAC lipstick in Twig, Softlips chapstick in Sugar Cookie, black ink pen, and the black-and-white polka dotted makeup bag houses my Omnipod, lancet, strips, Novolog and all things diabetes. Found in inside side pocket: "Love, Express" sample perfume, small scissors, ponytail holder.
My purse still has a ton of room in case I need to carry a book, my Filofax, magazines, bottle of water, or food. I heart this bag. And it only cost me $45 at Sam's Club!!! Bargain.
