What is in my Bag

Sunday, September 7, 2014 3 Permalink 0

I am a bag lady. I need bags, I buy bags, I love my bags. I wasn’t like that before, so not sure where the bag obsession has come from. I try to keep my bag collection in check by giving my old bags to friends and family and draw the line at 5 bags (this does not include my clutches, they are so small it would not be fair to count them as bags!). But I digress, this is not at ramble about my bags but about what is in my bag!

I am quite a well organized bag lady although this does not mean that I can actually find stuff in the bag easily. Don’t be fooled, no amount of organization has lessened the amount of time spent looking for keys.

Makeup bag – I got this (and a bigger wash-bag) in Primark earlier this year and it’s perfect. Easy to clean, soft, just the right size. No complaints. It’s pretty packed with various beauty essentials and some things no person who is right in their mind would lug around on a daily basis, but hey, you never know when you might need 4 different nude lip colors. I will not go into all of the details of what is in here but let mw know in the comments below or on Facebook if you want me to do a What’s in my make up bag post.

Wallet – I am really bad with wallets. I drop them, I get food on them, I spill stuff on them so rather than investing in one expensive wallet I just buy cute cheap ones. This one is from I AM (I got mine in the Utrecht Central Station but you can find stuff on their website as well).

Phone – My Tirita embelished Samsung Galaxy S4 is always in my bag no matter how small the bag. I can honestly say that I am addicted to my phone and I might need to come up with some phone detox plan soon!.

Sunglassess – Ray Ban Wayfarers in an old beat up case. I have had them for ages, I am tempted to say 8 years, but not sure. They are the pair I reach out for the most and I love them in every occasion.

Earphones – I stole these of A. and I really do like them. They are the Klipsch in ear model and I had to get the super tiny silicone buds for my tiny ears.

House keys – with a cupcake key-chain (also from I am) for getting told I look like a cupcake in a wedding dress I tried, and the ever present Albert Heijn customer card.

Elle denim pouch – houses the Ipad with Logitech keyboard and my Moleskin agenda (very old school of me I know), a bunch of random papers, and one Ibuprofen pill.

Work access card – with the keys this is the thing that I spend the most time looking for in my bag!

Kindle – poor broken Kindle. I am waiting to see if there will be a new one launched this fall and will then order a new one.

Coffee mug – holds coffee in the morning and water in the afternoon.

And now for some of the random stuff– Hand sanitizer, a mechanic pencil, a pen, more ibuprofen, tissues, train card, bank gadget thing, and a nail file. Oh and an umbrella of course, can’t live without and umbrella in the Netherlands!
