I have 3 handbags which I alternate using, depending on the situation, and at the moment, I’m using the biggest. I’ve had a very busy week work wise and I find this one great for dumping everything into that I may need for the day.
The only problem is though, that I do exactly that. Dump everything in it. My back protests. This morning it was so heavy (esp after I’d been to the bank and got a load of change for the shop!) i actually thought the straps would give up.
So here is the bag. Nice? It’s from Accessorise, and was a present from my mum.
I bet you want to see what’s in it don’t you?
Notepads.. So who doesn't carry these around? The one with the little house is from Emily Martin at The Black Apple, one of my favourite Etsy shops, in this is my random lists and things to do.
Mail.. I got a letter yesterday from the lovely Jasmine, so I took it with me to read when I had a spare minute or two.
More notepads.. The stripy note pad is my work scribbles, I keep the messages in here to do the rota with, requests for holidays from the staff etc
Scooby Snacks.. I always always carry food around with me,so that I can re fuel. I don’t drink a lot of coke, but sometimes it’s good to get some sugar. and don’t let the fruit fool you. This fruit has been in my bag for 3 days now. The chocolate however won;t survive the day.
Music & hair accessories.. If I’m in the shop on my own, I like to plug my own music into the system, & I always need to be able to tie my hair back if I’m working.
Essentials.. Face wipes, deodorant (it’s hot work making ice cream. (no I’m not kidding lol) Perfume (Covert by SJP. Love it) Anti bacterial hand gel (I’m sure that I spend more time than a normal 38yr old in Porta-loos) NO7 day cream with factor 15, I hate the feeling of sun lotion on my face so I use this.
Journal.. Cath Kidston (love her) I just recently bought this, & haven’t written in it yet :0.
Paper chase goodies.. My favourite shop for writing goodies, I went there yesterday & couldn’t leave the shop without these stickers, postcards & yep you guessed it..more notepads.
Book.. I don’t think I actually own a bag that a book won’t fit into. It’s what i judge all would be handbags on. Yes I am reading a Christmas themed novel in June. It’s my second one this week, and I’m loving it. Roll on Dec!!
Malta souvenirs & Keys.. My Mum & Dad went to Malta the other week, we lived there when I was a wee lass, and they’ve never been back, so they had fun reliving their youth :) The keys are my work bunch. Keys to the shop, the Ice cream factory, & the Bar that my bosses also own.
As you can tell by the time wasting element to this post (I’ve always seen these kind of posts and thought really? Who has time to take photos of their handbag contents?) I have the rest of the day off. Mr D is Sound engineering for a local Blues Festival.
Picture me, in my PJ’s (yup at 1pm) the second disc of the first series of Weeds, tea, (I’ll progress to the wine later) chocolate, and a huge pile of magazines.
Happy Days :) x
