” Just get a bag and drop a dream in it, and you’ll be surprised what happens”
Charles Nelson Reilly
Besides dreams, hopes and aspirations, we are all guilty of carrying around more than we actually need to survive all sorts of scenarios that actually never happen. But stuffing our bags with little bits and bobs is actually a security blanket that gives us a sense of comfort and reassurance that we can tackle whatever the day ahead throws our way… and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. After all this is how the most hilarious “what’s in my bag” posts and videos happen and we have #noregrets whatsoever!
We’ll start with the expected and move on to the unexpected.
…most likely empty as our cash and cards are randomly scattered around the purse, not to be found when most needed. But at least our wallet is super cool, in a beautiful shade that brightens the inside of our bags and our moods at the same time. Can’t beat that.
A Key Holder
…which generously holds all the keys we ever owned and refuse to get rid of despite the fact that we actually don’t need the key to our sixth grade diary as the plastic locket no longer works and our juvenile secrets have long been exposed to the public a.k.a cousin Susan who then told everyone. At least all those keys make a jingly sound which is at the very least amusing.
Our Phone, Headphones and Charger
…because we are admittedly addicted and we have to refresh our feed every ten nano-seconds to ensure we are not missing out on anything grand that will haunt us for the rest of our social media lives.
A super cool Beanie
…that is actually very handy and useful as the weather gets colder and our hair gets messy from the wind. Not only are we kept warm and cosy but also very chic and urban cool.
A Candy Wrapper
…which from the smell of it must have been really delicious. Not that we remember having it.
And another one
…yes, that one smells amazing too. We suspect chocolate covered strawberries.
A Mini Pouch
…that came with the bag and turned out to be a life saviour when we head out for drinks after work and need a cute clutch to make our outfit look evening appropriate. During the rest of the day that same pouch doubles as a makeup bag that carries our bb creams, powder, eye brow pencil and the 50 shades of lipsticks that we naturally need on a daily basis.
A random bracelet
…that we discovered at the bottom of our purse and could not be happier with the revelation. Happy dance. We’ll put it on right away.
A pair of Sunnies
…without their case, to hide a lot of sins.
A pair of Converse
…in a cloth bag, because we love our heels but after 5 hours we need the comfort of our trusted sneakers.
What’s in your bag?
