A mixed bag

9 March 2009

Ok, so I wasn't officially tagged, but was inspired by Jozehh to do this 'What's in your bag thing?' Haven't really been able to do my DIY post as of yet, as I had a research presentation to prepare for today, but will hopefully be able to post some interesting bits soon. So, to tide you over, here is my bag of tricks...

The blurb

1. Post a picture of the bag, purse, handbag, pocketbook [whatever you call it] that you are carrying. Now, don't you even think about going back there to your closet and getting your very favorite one or that cute little vintage clutch that you carried the last time you went out...I want to see the purse that you carried today!

2. Tell us how much it cost. Oh my, I know what you are thinking - a proper lady would never discuss matters of money, darling. Well, yes, but today we are gonna break that rule and tell. Yes, tell how much it cost. We won't judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. And if there is a story that goes along with this purse, tell it.

So this is the bag I was raving about a while ago, I bought it in the Luella Outlet for £144, and have been using it ever since so on a cost-per-wear basis, I guess it costs me about £2 each time I use it. I think that's pretty good, plus I rarely buy bags, and it was partly a Christmas present, so I feel it's justified. It's a pretty good size, but I haven't filled it to the brim today, to preserve it's longevity (I have another bag filled with sketchbooks and other knit related things, so I'm a proper bag lady).


Empty Sunglasses Case don't believe I've worn sunglasses for about 7 months, not sure why this is here
Random receipts some things I brought back, some I didn't
Student discount book everyone loves a bargain
USB contains a ridiculous amount of PSDs
Gum Wrapper
Memory Card This 1GB model has been discarded for the time being, since I traded up to a 4GB
Gum surprisingly, not kept in the wrapper, maybe shouldn't eat this
20p every little helps
Bottle lid was a former home to my contact lenses while in Florence
Random button might turn this into an earring
Notebooks for Uni I think there's a La Tasca voucher in here somewhere, mmmmm.
Hairbrush complete with actual hairs from my head
HMV Student card that I have never used
Purse empty
Ipod full
Phone a fairly new addition to my bag, just starting to get used to it, the iPhone will have to wait
Pen will soon run out

Conclusion I do have a lot of interesting stuff, just not in my bag

Now I tag basically everyone who is willing (and reads this blog, now is the time to come out of the woodwork)!
