What’s In My Bag + Giveaway


It’s time for an updated what’s-in-my-bag video (I explain what this means in the video, if you are unfamiliar, but in a nutshell: it’s a popular type of video on YouTube, all nosy and such). Again, I want to thank you all for your sweet support and for being a part of this blog. It’s been so great meeting so many of you over the past few years. I hope to meet many more of you in the coming ones!

As a thank you, I’d like to give one of you wonderful people a Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag. It’s in a gorgeous supple brown leather with brass hardware, and it’s the identical bag that I have been carrying around, and that you see in the video above. Disclaimer: I purchased the giveaway bag with my own money. Nothing about this giveaway is sponsored or affiliated with any brand in any way. How to enter after the click!

Here’s how to enter, if you didn’t feel like watching the video: you don’t need to tweet, like, or subscribe to anything. You don’t even have to be a subscriber. Of course, I’d love for you to, but it’s completely optional. (And in case you want to, there are many ways in the sidebar to do so.) All you have to do is leave a comment. It can be saying anything–although I enjoy reading the comments so much more if you’re interesting. 😉 How about what bag you are currently carrying around? Or a funny joke? Anything. You can even just write “enter me”, boring as it may be. Lastly, you can enter once per day, for as many days as the giveaway is open. That increases your chances of winning! Make sure you provide the correct email address in the comments below, so that I can have a way to reach you if you are the winner.

The giveaway closes January 31st at midnight central time. It is open worldwide, but you must be 13 or older (with your parent’s permission if you are under 18) to participate. I love you, and good luck!

    Is this the best giveaway ever?! A RM MAC bag sounds amaze! Right now, I’m switching between my two most recent purchases; a Steve Madden studded fold over clutch and a Steve Madden gold chained bowler bag. I love both, so I carry the clutch when I’m going light! I love your blog posts and check your tweets always! 🙂 xo Katykdf3k@mtmail.mtsu.edu

    I am currently carrying the Miu Miu Bow Bag in navy blue and I love it! The only downside is it gets super heavy, especially when I have my iPad in there. Hopefully I’ll win this giveaway and get an iPad mini from my parents for my upcoming birthday and I’ll be set! Thank you so much for doing this for us – it means a lot that you spend your own money for something like this, especially for no special reason.

    Hi, I recently found your blog via a pic on Pinterest and love it! I’m currently a nursing student who also loves anything pretty and sparkly. I’m carrying a black patent Coach purse right now, but I have wanted the MAC purse but didn’t know if it would be big enough. I love the one your giving away, perfect size and color. Thanks for your blog and videos:)

    It’d be great to win this.  I really need a bag.  The one I’m currently carrying around is a cross-body from Nine West.  I like it, but it’s not made from real leather so its now peeling like crazy.  sknebel (at) udel (dot) edu

  28. 01.14.2013 / 8:02 am

    I cannot believe you are giving away a Rebecca Minkoff bag that you purchased on your own. It  clearly shows how committed you are to not only your blog, but your fan base as well. Thank you so much for the giveaway and I’m loving all your posts recently. xo

    What a cute bag.  I’m carrying a very old black leather Coach hobo with the big silver buckle.  It’s a great old standby, but I’d love something a little smaller when I don’t need to bring my whole life along.  I also love the tan color and gold accents–I don’t have either at the moment.

    Sounds wonderful! I love your site and videos. I have bought the Amazing concealer and am going to get the Watts Up too. You do great reviews! Our cousin is in med school and I admire you for taking time for your readers. My bag keeps changing up but I usually have entirely too many lip products in it;) I also have a weiner whistle from when the Oscar Mayer truck visited our town and I sang the jingle. Doesn’t every woman need that in her purse? Have a great week!

I am currently carrying the Kate Spade Cobble Hill Little Minka purse in black with the Kate Spade Cobble Hill Stacy wallet in dusty mint. My wonderful fiance bought me a new purse and wallet after my entire purse was stolen when his car was broken into at the gym last week. Great giveaway! Love, love, love Rebecca Minkoff.

    I love the logo on your videos – this is a new feature right? And as usual I adore the bloopers at the end. I am literally thinking of moving to Houston after I finish my studies to have a chance of meeting you! 🙂 (ok, maybe not 100% literally, but you get the picture.)
    I’m currently carrying around a really huge Mark B for Topshop bag. But on days when I carry loooaaads of stuff I go with my fake-leather backpack.

    Here’s hoping I win (because I never do) http://www.msveve.blogspot.com; ronkostrou@gmail.com

  82. 01.14.2013 / 2:45 pm

    I just got a new bag for free at a clothes swap that’s huge and has an oversize rosette on it. Well, I don’t know if i’m such a fan of the rosette but I love having a huge bad. I need so much stuff at all times 🙂 Please enter me in your giveaway! alicesibley919@gmail.com

    I didn’t think I would ever say this since the one you’ve been wearing is so gorgeous, but I think you’ve found a purse as amazing as your Alexander Wang Rocco! Being a student and all, I am always carrying around my North Face backpack for the majority of the day, so I usually bring small clutches, wristlets, or wallets to carry around my phone and a few other objects like my Shiseido lip conditioner, L’Occitane en provence lotion, or Dior lip gloss. when I’m not carrying my heavy backpack. Lately I’ve been using hot pink leather Kate Spade wristlet, but I have been known to carry some of my other favorites like a large pink floral and metallic Coach wristlet, a pin pink traditional C-print small coach wristlet, or best one of all, my gold glitter with black piping and brass detailed Betsy Johnson. One of my cousins just started her Residency, so I imagine it must be hard for you. How do you keep up with your work and your blog? I feel very thankful that even though you must work very hard for a multitude of hours, you still can post for your fans. Any who, thanks for the post and my email is fjfrancesjohnson@gmail.com. Happy Monday!

    Ahhh! I would love that bag! I am currently carrying around a green Michael Kors bag and although I am a little tired of it sometimes (I sometimes opt for a dinosaur back pack to carry my boys things with us ha!) it has served me well 🙂 I was really sad to hear about the mean comments that you got, but I think that everyone who has any kind of following on the internet will get them, there are some jealous people who just want to be mean to people from behind their computers. denise.ann.richardson@gmail.com

    I can’t believe you’re purchasing the MAC bag yourself to giveaway! I love when bloggers don’t let the designers dictate their blogs/posts/recommendations. Although, how can you not love Rebecca Minkoff?! I have lusted after the MAC bags for years – still trying to save up and buy one (they’re not exactly cheap, lol). I’m with you, and would choose the classic brown color with brass hardware. It is like a quilted Chanel bag; it will never go out of style! And as you have shown, the size is perfect. Still saving my pennies to buy one if I don’t win…

My husband is an anesthesiologist and it’s one of his favorites……Q:What is the difference between God and a surgeon?  A: God doesn’t think he’s a surgeon.  🙂  hehe have a good day, thanks again for the great giveaway!

    When you purchase a new bag but it’s so huge that you have to put things like a book, a bottle of water, and full sized lotion bottles in it just to make sure the shape stays right <<< haha

    Hey 🙂 firstly what a beautiful bag! I’m currently using a chloe saskia, which is a similar size to the MAC. Secondly you’ve near enough convinced me to change from the iPad 3 to an ipad mini just so it fits in my bag better! & finally It’s so nice to see someone in anaesthetics who likes beauty & sparkly things as much as me 🙂 (ok…you might like them a little more than me) I’m the equivalent of an anaesthetic technician in the UK so when you posted that you were doing anaesthetics it made me love your blog even more! hope your having a lovely day xx

    A quick note, from a woman-scientist-in-Alaska who thinks you have the most original, intelligent, honest, down-to-earth, and *real* approach to fashion and beauty. Your blog is the only one i check regularly, mostly b/c it is the only one that shows that smart chicks can like sparkle, too! 🙂 And it’s all very accessible (for instance, in Alaska, ‘dressing up’ means your jeans are free of duct-tape-covered holes. 🙂  I would love to see more fashion/clothes posts, too. Perhaps a video?

    RM actually makes an ever bigger MAC bag… the MAC Daddy. LOL! I’ve been thinking about getting one but they aren’t as easy to find. I have a mini MAC in neon pink but I only use it during warmer months. Cute video! Wish I carried less crap in my purse. You’re doing MUCH better than me in that department!

  322. Clara
    01.15.2013 / 9:40 am

    Was so great to see you go through the MAC bag so thoroughly – have been wanting one forever and this video further cemented my love for it! I also may have audibly squealed when you pulled your iPad mini out of the bag because I just got one too! So very very excited to see that the iPad mini fits in so perfectly. Lastly, I live in New Zealand, aka Hobbitville, so the chances of being able to buy a Rebecca Minkoff bag is pretty much zero!

    wow there’s already so many comments here! Today I wore my furry River Island bag and inside there were only my wallet, phone and study materials. Oh and a thrifted vintage dress I found at my favorite thrift store.

    I forgot to mention yesterday that I bought the bb cream that you recommended – the Asian cream in the pink bottle (I can’t recall the name – I’d be a terrible blogger). Anyway, I LOVE it. Thanks for the heads up – I’m not sure how you found it because I never would have found that one on my own.

    It’s refreshing to see a blogger “give back” without having it be sponsored. I know many people attempt to make you feel special and make you (as a reader) feel counted and appreciated, but I genuinely felt that way when I watched your video. So even though I’d love to win the handbag, I still want to say thank you for making us feel appreciated and welcome on your blog – I hope you feel as wanted and appreciated as you made us feel! 🙂

    Day Two! Since I am a relatively new reader, I recently found out your reasoning to create this blog and depressing event that changed you and your family’s lives forever. I find it incredibly inspiring that even with the passing of your brother, you have continued to give back to others, whether its your job as a doctor, your blog, or everyday life. You have been mentioning the rude, senseless things people say about you and it is truly saddening because someone who is as happy and giving as you should never have to read that. All of it isn’t true. Pretty Shiny Sparkly is something that makes me smile with the hilarious bloopers and jokes. As I read your blog posts, it inspires me to keep on going and never give up, even when I feel the worst. And now, you make all of us readers feel welcomed into your blogging; it feels great. Sponsored posts never bothered me at all, but it shows a lot about your character to be willing to spend your own money to share a gift with your fans. Thank you! My email is fjfrancesjohnson@gmail.com

    Wow I have to say Kristina, this is a pretty remarkable move on your part. I know how easy it can be to get wrapped up in brand sponsorships and paid content, so to see you break away from that and finance such an amazing giveaway yourself is not only refreshing, but it’s inspiring as well. You’ve given me a lot to think about in terms of where I want to take my own blog this year, so thank you for that… Keep shining! xx

    First off, I really enjoy your blog and have learned some valuable beauty tips from you. I don’t want to cause you any additional pain, but as the owner of a furbaby myself, I really hope you will update us as to what happened to your Winnie. I recall you saying she was stolen, and then nothing more. I sincerely hope that she was found and returned to you, please let us know.

     Just wanted to say (regardless of it “enters” me or not)–I appreciate that you bough the bag yourself, Kristina! So many of us bloggers rely on brand support, and I think it makes the giveaway all the more meaningful that it’s LITERALLY coming from you. Mad props, lady!

It’s lasted me almost a year and is the lightest, prettiest foundation I’ve ever tried. Anyway, thank you for the videos/reviews and the giveaway

    I’m so glad you’re doing a giveaway that doesn’t involve FB or Twitter! I LOVE reading fashion/beauty blogs but don’t have a FB or Twitter account, which disqualifies me from entering any giveaways. I’ve come to love your blog-thanks for the BB cream and gel eyeliner posts! And as a fellow Texan I would LOVE to carry around a designer brand bag. All mine are from Target or Forever 21, which I adore them all, but it would be nice to have that one special bag!

  421. 01.15.2013 / 10:02 pm

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I’m carrying a LV bag right now, and I’d love to mix it up with this pretty RM bag, especially because the leather is lighter on the RM and a bit more spring-like. xoxo

  425. 01.15.2013 / 10:42 pm

    Seriously, how sweet are you to provide the bag yourself?!?!?! I’ve been following PSS for almost two years now, and I can’t believe anyone would ever say anything negative about this positive space. If you haven’t already realized, your daily readers freaking LOVE you! 
    Now, onto the video..despite how much I like the items in there, I have to admit that the bag is so very distracting. Great color too!

    I found your website the other night and spent HOURS watching your videos and reading your blogs. I was so inspired, I was up until 2 in the morning working on my blog! I LOVE everything you’ve posted and look forward to every new video/post. So sweet of you to do this giveaway and shows that you truly love your followers! Love the bloopers – definitely shows your personality and what’s not to love!? Thanks for all that you do!

    I actually just found your blog this weekend but I am so glad I did!! I am just starting to get into the whole “blog scene” and I absolutely love your style and bookmarked your site right away 🙂 I will definitely be checking back often to see what your wearing/how you style things. Clearly readers old and new really appreciate all the work you put into this 🙂 keep the posts coming girly!
