Just the essentials then... ;)

Sunday, 26 August 2012

  Well hello there,

So today is Sunday and Sunday for me means working; gone are the days when Sunday was the 'day of rest' for me. I work in retail to pay my way through studying, though I'm very lucky in that I enjoy my part-time job working at Accessorize, but regardless I'm pretty shattered today and decided I'd do a 'What's in my bag' post, as I think it really shows a lot about a person... 



I always have a bulging bag, always heavy and pretty much equipped for any situation. I'm the kind of person who'd carry a lighter despite not being a smoker, and I always carry a bottle opener (a bit random really). I used to have a lot of bags though I only have around 5 or 6 large bags, and maybe 8 smaller ones these days, though I have a funny feeling I do have more... The handbag I am currently using is from 'Red or Dead' I've had it for about 5 years now, I received it as a Christmas present from 'Santa' and have always gotten many compliments about it, I think it's quite unusual and I especially love the matroshka doll charms on it though the smaller one fell off :( the list of 'what's in my bag' is fairly vast, and that's not even including the makeup bag contents which I will list in a later post.

                                                         

                                                            The Contents of my bag...


  1. Bulging full purse... and sadly not money, receipts, loyalty cards, ID, the usual.
  2. My glasses, in their case. 
  3. Headphones
  4. Planner and pen
  5. Headphones
  6. Box of plasters (I am pretty clumsy/accident prone)
  7. Packet of tissues
  8. A random matroshka doll charm, was originally on the bag
  9. A New Zealand bottle cap bottle opener
  10. Mini lint roller
  11. A handful of boiled 'Fox's' sweeties
  12. Chewing gum
  13. 'I am DIVA' mirror
  14. Little tin for holding 'bits and pieces'
  15. House keys
  16. and Make up bag.
  17. Almost forgot these... a random pair of silver earrings.
As you can probably see I don't travel light, on a night out; I always take a smaller purse (my 'party purse' as I like to call it) a little mirror, my camera (which is currently broken) :( , my phone (absent from the picture as was taking the picture) a few wee makeup bits and pieces and my house keys, though usually I end up taking some random other bits and bobs out too. 

I hope you've all had a lovely Sunday, I've spent the last few hours searching places to go on holiday next Summer with my friend Sam :) Croatia anyone? Anybody else already thinking of next Summer after the pretty much non-existent one we've just had. But first we're headed to Amsterdam in November, for which I'll definitely need to travel light... eeek! Well I best be heading to bed, as I'm on 'school run' duty tomorrow for my ten year old brother, then heading to work,before picking him up from school (ever dutiful daughter).
Till next time,

Iona
