#BLOGTOBER DAY 12: Whats In My Handbag?

I recently had a clear out of my handbag because I managed to buy a new one. When I say ‘new’ I mean old. It’s a 1970’s Nova handbag picked up at a vintage fair for… *drumroll*… 50p. Awesome! I know 😉

The current contents of my bag are as follows:

  • My purse
  • 2 pens
  • 2 hair bobbles
  • A lip gloss
  • Spot ointment
  • Basic First Aid information
  • And a DVD which I’ve been meaning to give to my pregnant friend for some time now. Doh!



That’s basically it. My purse is way more exciting. Lets talk about that instead shall we?

I did have a receipt detox 2 days ago, after realising that my purse was too fat to close… and there wasn’t even any money in there. Instead I now carry my array of reward cards including my 15 year old Boots card that no longer words properly; I can add points but heaven forbid should I try to use them. I MUST order a new card. I’ve been meaning to do this now for around 3 years. I also have a mini sewing kit in there just-in-case. I also have a few photographs in there, including a newspaper cutting from our local paper announcing my birth and a passport photo of my husband because I think he looks well sexy in it.

I can honestly say, that my handbag is really really boring. When my girls we younger my bag was crammed with all sorts of junk. Toys, cloth baby wipes, packs of seeds (don’t ask), cotton wool, spare clothes, a spare pair of knickers, tissues, and empty food packaging. I remember my changing bag so vividly because it was such a nightmare to lug around, being so full of crap.

I know that tomorrows #Blogtober16 question is ‘What is the contents of my fridge?” I can tell you all now, it’s even less than the contents of my handbag.
