Last week I shared the contents of my handbag
with you all. It was quite a personal blog post because I think handbags are a rather secretive place where any number of odds and ends can be stashed. In fact, they are sometimes a very messy place that you wouldn’t want anyone else rummaging through – I’m pretty sure that I edited out a lot of receipts, empty sweet wrappers and 2ps from the bottom of my bag before I photographed it! Anyway, a lot of you were kind enough to get in touch to let me know that you enjoyed having a nosy inside my handbag and one lovely reader got in touch with her own handbag story.
Llinos from fab blog Whispers of Wellness
sent me a photo of the contents of her handbag and told me all about what she carries and why, and here it is:
“I love my purse, I got it with a gift card in Debenhams. The hedgehog is so cute! I’ve got a little angel charm on it too. Then a pen, brush, tissues and paracetamol as essentials or emergency items. My keyring is a lemur toy which was a gift, he is easy to find when I rummage in my bag for my car key! My perfume is Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine, and my lipstick is Bare Minerals ‘Feel the Love’. A spritz and a dash of them are essential for a midday freshen up.”
As you saw from my handbag snaps last week
, I too carry lots of ’emergency’ items including safety pins and mini screwdriver! It’s very interesting to see Llinos’ keyring too- I didn’t think to include my keys in my handbag blog post, but actually keys can be just as personal as the contents of the handbag itself. My caravan key has a cheeky ‘nice bottom’ keyring so I rarely take that one out of the house with me in case anyone spots it! My normal keys have a photo-keyring of my friends and I on a night out during our uni days and a small piece of wood painted in duck-egg blue that my brother made into a keyring for me so that I would always be able to ‘touch wood’ when the occasion arose!
