Did Someone Mention Handbags?



When I hear the word handbag, my ears start listening and my eyes start looking!

I have a confession to make, I am slightly addicted to handbags.


OK, I might just have one or two or ten!

There are a few Aussie bloggers that have been bearing the contents of their handbags.

Kirsten from Kirsten & Co should have at least 10 new bags after her trip to the US.

Emily from Have A Laugh On Me desperately needs a new bag, maybe I could send her one.

and Mumabulous is getting her serpent on, thankfully not the live variety.


This is my bag for the week, a gift from my girls!

Love Colette bags, great value and incredibly sturdy.

contents of my bag

My bag is no-go rubbish zone, bad Feng Shui to have it stuffed full of crappola!

WALLET – A vital necessity and this one is a $10.00 bargain off Ebay. All important goodness is housed perfectly in this one. I like big wallets with lot’s of card slots.

NOTEBOOK & PEN – As much as I have embraced modern technology, when it comes to jotting down idea’s or important facts I prefer to write it rather than type it.

FOLD UP CARRY BAG – I am soooo over going into Aldi and having to juggle my purchases in my arms. I am also sooooo over buying more shopping bags, I have way to many of them. So I now keep this zip up bag in my handbag permanently. When it is full, it is time for me to exit Aldi immediately.

GLASSES – I was surprised that I only found one pair in my bag, normally there is more lurking in the bottom. I always carry my good ones and a few cheapie pairs to wear at work, as I am tired of dropping the good ones on the ground while I am working and watching them smash into little bits.

CARD HOLDER – Nifty little holder for ALL those store cards that I only use occasionally (cough, cough).

LIPPIES – Minimum of two, often more, if I wear nothing else, must have lipstick on when I leave home.

HAIR TIES & SAFETY PIN – Between the three of us, one of us always needs a hair tie and a safety pin can save you from all sorts of embarrassing moments.

NAIL FILE – Pet hate, hooks on nails. My nails grow like weeds and are usually pretty long. When disaster strikes and I break one, I have to file it ASAP.

COFFEE COINS – Just in case…….must have coffee, always some gold saviors lurking in the side pocket.

NAME BADGE – I might forget my name, I can just glance down for a reminder. 🙂

IPHONE LENS ATTACHMENT – Great for taking awesome shots with your iPhone, has a macro, fishbowl and panorama lens.

GARAGE BIPPER – Now if I just had a voice controlled garage door I would not need this thingy in my bag. It’s so sensitive that sometimes I just have to lift up my bag and the garage door goes up.

KEYS – No keys, no drivies.

LOCKER KEY – Keeping things safe at work.

TITANIUM PAIN PADS – Handy mini pads you can stick on sore parts of your body. Work wonders, thanks Daiso.

Must stock up on mints, I have none!

Are you game to reveal all?
