Gum: "I always have sugarless Dentyne Ice with me or in the car."
Melodies by MJB sunglasses: "Sunglasses are a signature look of mine. If you go back to any of my older photos, or any pictures of me now, you'll see me in sunglasses really good ones. It's my trademark. I wore these on American Idol this year."
Wallet: "I've been carrying a Louis Vuitton wallet for a very long time. I keep photos of my children and family in it."
Book: "I read Joyce Meyer's Starting Your Day Right each morning. It's a book of daily devotions that helps me in my everyday life."
Lip gloss: "I normally have either MAC Lipglass in Lust or Lustreglass in Love Nectar I just love the color on my skin; it makes me look like I'm not wearing anything and Lip Butter lip balm by Carol's Daughter."
Scarf: "I keep a Gucci scarf around my neck or in my bag."
Eyeliner: "MAC makes the eye pencil that I love. I like having a smoky eye."
My Life perfume: "Women were my inspiration for this scent. It has a softness to it because sometimes we feel soft, but there's also a fruitiness for when you're feeling edgy and want someone to want to, like, lick your arm. There's a toughness, too, which are the wood notes it shows people that we're the full package."
Earrings: "I always have a pair of hoops with me just in case I need to throw on some jewelry."
A pen: "Of course a pen I just pack whatever pen I can find. I'm cool."
BlackBerry Bold: "It's the 'new phone,' and I just love it because it's convenient. I don't want to have a big old cell phone in my bag, you know?"
The Bag: "My Gucci bag is a one-of-a-kind chocolate croc that has room for everything. But if I'm going to dinner, I'll use a clutch or a small Pucci purse with only my perfume, phone, a credit card, some money, and a lip gloss tucked in it."
