#ProjectPurseDump - Week 10 - Of Pink and Bling, by @TerriLAustin - #WritersLife

As fictional purses go, I don't think things can get pinker or more shiny--both characteristics I have a weakness for. Without further ado, let us bring author Terri L. Austin's character to the (figurative) stage.

Of Pink and Bling by Terri L. Austin

Hey, everybody! I’m Sugar de la Tarte. As a retro pin up girl and burlesque performer, I keep a few essentials in my bag at all times. I never know when someone might recognize me, so I like to look my best.

Here’s my favorite bag.  Doesn’t this just scream Sugar? Since I love my deep red lips, I wouldn’t be caught dead without a tube of Mac Red.

So what else do I keep in my sweet little cosmetic bag?

My compact, natch.

Who wants to walk around with a shiny nose? Not me, honey.

And of course I can’t leave home without my pasties. Believe me, carrying these around along with my pastie glue has saved my bacon more than once.

Since I got inked—isn’t she lovely—I need to have a tube of sunscreen on hand. I don’t want this beauty to fade.

Last but not least, I carry my phone, but I had to bling out my case. In my world, presentation is everything!

You can catch more of Sugar de la Tarte in Diner Knock Out—a Rose Strickland Mystery by Terri L. Austin at Amazon or Barnes.
