Around a month ago (I know... but better late than never!) the lovely Maddie tagged me to do this post. It wasn't actually that long ago that I decided to lay bare the contents of my handbag for the internet to see, but Maddie's tag got me beyond excited! Besides, I have since downsized and things are looking a little bit different. So here's what the new contents of my handbag say about me:
THE THANK YOU ECONOMY
tells you that I will be starting a new job at the end of the month and I am desperately trying to shift gears from bedding and perfumes to SEO and CRM.
A LOOSE GYM CARD
tells you that despite my best efforts and writing this post all aspirations to become that girl who 'gyms' have failed. I haven't been in over a month and I have no intention of using the last two weeks of my membership- 40 more minutes of sleep in the morning and ciders on the beach in the evening are just more important these days.
THE POST CARD
tells you that on my last train journey I met a man named called Michael who decided to tell me ALL about his life and his family. It turns out his brother in law is an artist and Michael carries around a stack of his postcard designs and hands them out to random people he meets. Funnily enough this is not the weirdest thing to happen to me on a train... I think I must have a sign on my forehead that says 'strangers gather here'. I once had a woman dressed in all leopard print try to get me to taste her breath freshener and then ask me if she looked pregnant enough to convince the ticket man she was going into labour. Needless to say, there was a lot of nervous laughter on my part.
8 LIP PRODUCTS
tells you that Blistex MedPlus is much easier to use than Blistex Relief Cream, but the later is more effective so both must be carried at all times. It also tells you that I like to carry a lip liner, a nude, a pink, a purple, and two reds because... options.
AN EMERGENCY POUCH
containing a panty liner, soluble paracetamol, co-codamol, day nurse, tissues, plasters, hair grips, and a clear tongue stud tells you that I am really a mum trapped in a 21 year-old's body.
THE MONEY POUCH
tells you exactly which items in my larger wallet I deemed essential to my handbag downsize. They include, among other things, my boots card, my Caffè Nero loyalty card, my Phò loyalty card, and 62p (because that is essential). It also tells you I like pouches.
6 TRAIN TICKETS & 11 RECEIPTS
tells you that the barriers at train stations in Dorset are generally just left open and that I have recently purchased iced coffee, coriander, a whole array of rose gold body jewellery, a diary for my man, £10.05 worth of postage, and some Phò. You can see where the loyalty cards have come in handy. I have also returned some late night online shopping purchases. Turns out I don't need a new bikini if I am not going on holiday.
I'd love to read what your handbag's say about you- let me know down below or link me to any posts you've already written.
I'd officially like to tag:
