It took me forever to decide which handbag was worthy of my small savings this year and just right for my Fall/Winter wardrobe. I’d been using my little white Rockie bag by Alexander Wang and loving the size, though the fun feet on the bottom made it a bit heavy for long walks and I prefer to save my whites for Spring and Summer. And while I still use my large Pashli bag by 3.1 Phillip Lim, it’s jut too big for everyday. So I finally settled on a the mini Pashli bag in navy, and I just love it. {seen once here in this outfit post}

When Ricola asked me to partner up for their #swissherbs campaign, I couldn’t resist showing off my new handbag, which arrived at around the same time. Also, I actually LOVE Ricola natural herb cough drops and eat them like candy in the winter {seriously, whenever I pull out an old handbag in my closet, the bottom is littered with Ricola drops & coins and lip balms I’d forgotten about}. And I love when brands and products I already use and stand by come a’knockin’, because it’s a win win for everyone! {100$ giveaway below!}

The hilariously awesome box arrived in the mail which echoed R I C O L A… when I opened it and included my favorite original drops {cultivated in Swiss alpine areas using organic farming methods without chemical pesticides!} and a bag of their new Extra Strength for powerful cough relief drops, which have a natural menthol liquid center. I can’t say I’m looking forward to getting a winter cold to try them out, but I bet that minty center works wonders to relieve a dry throat.

What’s in my winter bag…

With this winter season comes so much dryness… so. much. dryness. And while I don’t tend to keep lotion in my handbag, even in the winter, I do keep Ricola drops, tons of lip balm and lip gloss, my fingerless gloves that I wear every day, my phone, wallet {by Alexander Wang}, a hair clip or two, sunglasses {still wearing my fave Tom Fords whenever I need to get up and go because they’re so sturdy I never worry about them getting ruined if I need to toss them in my bag}, and my mini tape measure {in case I find the perfect vintage chair, like the one here, and need to measure it to fit my home/space}.
