I'm constantly amused by the random things my girlfriends pull out of their handbags. You can learn so much about somebody by what they have in there! We tend to keep a big part of our lives stored away in there, and I thought it would be a fun post idea to show what's been hiding in my handbag. I thought it would be even more fun, if you all joined in the challenge by snapping a photo or two of the contents of your handbag and posting it on your blog too! What do you think? You game for the redBungalow What's in Your Bag Challenge?
Here's my random assortment of goodies hiding in my handbag today:
*bobby pins and hair ties - 80% of the time when I leave the house with my hair down, it is somehow pinned up and tied back by the time I get home from work.
*wallet and keys - essential for obvious reasons :)
*chapstick - can't leave home without it! I have tons of different chapsticks all over my apartment.
*pen - because you can never find one when you need one.
* Blackberry - I don't think you can see it in the pictures, but it's a very important tool for me and it hardly leaves my side! I am however, thinking of switching to a Droid...or at least a touch screen. It's time to get with 2010!
*work badge and old hotel keycards - as a testament to the fact i travel way too much for work
*Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert - This is the book I'm currently reading. I really loved the section when she traveled through Italy, but I am having a harder time getting through the India portion. I also have to admit I'm sad they are making a movie out of this because the author has soo much internal monologue in the book and I know it will all get lost in the film. I just know if I try to watch the movie I will be thinking of all the great tidbits of info they are leaving out.
*Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS Digital Elph - My handy little point and shoot camera. It's great that I always carry my camera with me, but I have to admit it usually stays right inside my bag. I REALLY need to work on that.
*random thumbdrive - Because you never know when you'll need to transfer some pics from friends or work documents or whatever. I'm aware this may make me a geek. I'll accept that.
*ipod - yay!
*a few pair of sunglasses - Two of these are vintage and the Black ones are Valentino. Sunglasses are one of my many random obsessions. I like having a couple on hand so I don't have too worry about matching my outfit when I'm running out the door in the morning.
*Smart Water - I tote water bottles back and forth to work everyday since they started charging us for drinks in the kitchen.
Now what am I missing? I should probably carry around bandaids and lotion, but meh...I've got so much stuff already. :) Sometimes I have an extra Special K protein bar in my bag too to help me not hit the very unhealthy snack drawer when I get the afternoon munchies in the office.
OK. Now that I've exposed what's in mine, I'm excited to see what you have hiding in yours! Have a great weekend, and hopefully I can peek into your bag next week too!
