I have been exhausted recently. Mentally more so than physically. I’m sure you would have thought the latter being that I am 18 weeks pregnant, and have been dealing with a house of sickness over the past two weeks. Stomach flu, chest cold and a “man cold” anyone?! Oh, I know you are jealous!

Anyway I trucked on through. Kept pushing on with my head held high.

Why? Simple. I knew Blissdom Canada was nearing.

A chance for me to escape, enjoy some uninterrupted sleep for 3 nights straight, enjoy the comfort of networking with like-minded individuals, all the while also learning and being inspired.

I would be a liar if I said that BlissDom Canada wasn’t blissful. It was pure bliss and so much more. However this post isn’t solely based on my BlissDom experiences.

My idea for this post came from an A-HA moment I experienced while sitting in on Julie Nowell’s Creative Pitches and Sponsored Posts session. My idea for this post also evolved further during a creative breakout session where we were asked to pick out the oddest thing in our purse.

What is the strangest item that is currently floating around in your purse?


I had one of those awkward moments during the Creative Breakout Session. I didn’t have my purse on me, but rather a small tote that I was using to carry around some business cards, a note book, my cell phone, a pen and Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer. It felt kind of bizarre to make my my team of 7 other people believe that the strangest thing I could find in my tote was an empty landyard, but it was the truth.

If my purse had been on me during that particular session, I’m sure I would have had some strange looks when I pulled out endless amounts of  lollipops (bribery for the kids), and endless tubes of lipstick and lip moisturizers.

My Nana raised me with the understanding that you should always have a tube of lipstick, lip gloss or lip moisturizer in your purse for whatever occasion may arise while out and about. I’m thankful for this lesson and abide by it! Perhaps, I’m a little too dedicated to her rule of thumb.

As of current, I have 3 different tubes of lipstick and 5 lip moisturizers kicking around in my purse. I’m a self-professed lip gloss hoarder if you will!

I’ll tell you while at BlissDom Canada it came in so handy having all those lip products handy. The air in my hotel room was so dry. Not only did it leave me up hacking up a lung night after night, but I found my skin and lips dried out quickly.

My go-to for a quick fix during the conference was the Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer.

Soft Lips Lip Moisturizer

This lip moisturizer was the perfect companion for my conference tote. It was compact. Smelled amazing. It only made sense to have watermelon lip gloss considering I’m carrying a watermelon (er… wee bundle).

I have always been a fan of Softlips, as I find that you don’t have to reapply the lip moisturizer as often as other leading brands. Not to say that I don’t switch out brands often… because I do. I love variety! This lip gloss is just my favourite at the moment.

I would love to make you a lip moisturizer hoarder like me, and offer you the chance to win an amazing Softlips Prize Pack!

    I keep some Salt, Pepper & Vinegar packets in my purse. My Grandpa got me in the habit because his favourite restaurant when I was growing up never included salt & pepper packets. I have gone into a sushi restaurant (Hubby likes sushi I don’t) & when I asked for some salt & pepper, they looked at me strange & told me they don’t have any. So I reached into my purse & pulled out my own 🙂

    Drinking box straws… from two weeks ago when I took my boys to cross country. I’m not sure why they were still in there. But I guess things often get lost or overlooked when you have a purse full of emergency kids snacks and all the rest of the ‘necessities’ of being a mom.

    Unfortunately, my purse is somewhat compact and i don’t have much room to store anything extra other than a pair of nylon foot-lets (never know when you need to try on shoes!), purple post-its and 6 lipsticks and the usual wallet, keys, etc., etc… Do allergy tablets count as odd?

    The strangest thing in my purse? Depends on one`s definition of strange. I think it is the resin tooth in a tiny ziplock , which I am trying to avoid losing till I can get my dentures fixed. What gets the oddest looks is the 1.5x2x.5 inch keychain that is a complete sewing kit: scissors, measuring tape, mending tape, threads (at least 4 different colours), needles (sewing, tapestry, beading), pins (straight and safety), buttons, hooks/eyes, threader – and a thumb drive & nail clippers.

    Mind, the strangest thing is not in my purse. It`s the 3-7 sewing and tapestry needles (some threaded) I carry around in the underside of my jacket lapel. What can I say? I`m a tailor!

    Socks. I keep planning on shopping for new runners and so often I’m wandering around in flip flops that I end up not being able to try them on. I got tired of not having socks on so I decided to throw a pair in there. I mean I carry just about everything else for the kids anyways…besides socks also double as great puppets for the girls in a pinch!
