What kind of handbag?
Black leather Valentino Rock Stud Tote

What does your handbag say about you?
Casually fashionable and practical with a touch of rock 'n roll.

What's the most important thing in your handbag?
My phone. I sort of feel helpless without it.

How about the most surprising thing?
My stat sheets for fantasy football. I am in a league playing for $5,000 for a charity of our choice with Mayor Carolyn and Oscar Goodman, Ricardo Laguna, Chumlee, Dana Wagner, Forrest Griffin, TJ Lavin, Jason Feinberg, Doug Kezirian and Dave, Mahoney & DK from X107.5 Morning Show. I'm playing for Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada. I'm super competitive and trying my best to win it for the kids!

What was the first handbag you carried that was memorable?
A boyfriend gave me a Gucci bag in my late 20s. Up until then, I never carried a purse. I was more of a simple wallet gal. I still have that first bag

Name eight items in your handbag and why you must carry them:
Phone charger, iPhone 4 to 5 adapter and extended battery backup pack. With all the calls, emails and social media sites I manage, my phone loses charge often throughout the day.

2. American Express and my driver's license. I never leave home without them.

3. Sunglasses. You never know what time you might get home in Vegas.

4. Lip gloss. I have seven in my bag now.

5. Allure Perfume by Chanel. I've been wearing Allure for 17 years. Before that, Chanel No. 5 and Coco. I guess I've always been a fan of Chanel.

6. Mont Blanc pen. I'm not sure why, but it is one of those things that makes me feel like I've made it. I kind of think of it as my lucky pen and use it to sign contracts.

7. Big Red Gum. It's been my gum since I was 13.

8. Tropical Smoothie BOGO (buy one get one) cards. Anytime I run into customers I hand them a couple.
