Spreading the Love

Psynopsis What's In Your Bag
I recently received awards from the lovely Pia of Haute Like Wasabi, Imogen of Tia Cherie, Cristi of Thatssorad, RockandRevolution and Haute World. Thank you so much for thinking of me and giving me awards!

Since I already went into total confession mode in my
All You Never Wanted to Know about Me post I thought I can’t do that again to you.

So instead I went one step further and [GASP!] opened [the secret life of every woman] my handbag! And what did I find?

1. A bag in a bag in a bag… I got this little Goldpfeil wallet for one of my Vogue subscriptions and it’s been with me ever since. It holds all my cards and the little money I carry around with me.
2. My glasses. When I recently went to the optician because I was sure all this computer work would make me farsighted I was told I was actually shortsighted. Doesn't matter... Just as well a perfect reason for a pair of Givenchy frames, even if I only wear them for driving.
3. My sunglasses. I haven’t used them for weeks, but hope keeps them in my bag. Love the battered leather case by a company called 'The Original'.
4. Self-made purse with Euros.
5. Handcream. A must!
6. Lipstick. Chanel, colour no. 40.
7. Pocket mirror. Another of these nifty presents you get when you buy several items of one cosmetic brand. I can never stop myself…
8. Keys.
9. Suncream. Another item that hasn’t been too necessary lately. But having spent years of my childhood burning in the sun I’m now triple trying to make up for it (hence therefore SPF 40).
10. The second part of subscription presi; holding more little things. (More bags in bags... am I showing my slightly OCD side here?)
11. Current bag. I never have the time to adjust my bag to my outfit. This black Be&D bag has been with me for a while and is just perfect.

12. Then I was thinking 'Isn't there something missing?' - until I realised that all technology was plugged in somewhere. But I have to share my phone with you because only then will you understand what a tech dino I really am! (Ok, I do have a Blackberry thingy, but hardly know how to use it.)

Just like you, I have hand-cream in my bag, car & almost anywhere around the house! Lovely day to you darling!

Jen said...

Thank you so much, dear Sabine! I love nosying about in other people's bags. Yours is fab - I love how you're prepared for sudden bursts of sunshine with your sunglasses and cream! :)

If you'd like to see what's in my bag, I did a similar post a few months ago: http://littlebirdfashion.blogspot.com/2009/12/whats-in-bag.html

Your phone reminds me of being 15! Aaaah, the memories!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Awww...I heart you, Sabine! Thank you so, so much for the award - you are the sweetest person ever!

And I must admit...I love the peek inside your handbag. It's so organized. I'm beginning to think that I'm the only person on the planet who carries around so much lip gloss!! :)

MissKellie said...

My sister used to have that exact same phone! :D My current cell isn't much better. Ha, I'm not very big on current technology things.


S.Elisabeth said...

LOVE! I love reading about what's in a girl's purse, always interesting. And so true, Erika is a genius with her blog.

drollgirl said...

Gizelle | Vanilla Ice Cream said...

i have mini-bags in my bag!
they just make it easier to transfer stuff from one bag to another..hehehe.

the 3310 phone is so cute!
i miss that phone!
i was a poor college kid (basically cuz i spent my money on food and clothes) that while my classmates had high-end phones, i had my 3310 for 3 years!hehe.

and damn, i'm too late for the polka post...but just have to comment on it, I LOVE POLKA DOTS!

♥ vanilla ice cream ♥

Christina said...

I love taking a peek in people's bags, and yours was no disappointment! I like that wallet you made yourself, very cool!

Big Daddy said...

Oh i loved this, and you made it so easy to read. I think every ladys bag is like a secret to her life, so interesting!

Emily McGuire said...

I live in Australia! It's hot here all year round. Winter doesn't drop past 20 degrees. Glad you liked my bag! It was only $25! We have really great vintage shopping here.


betz said...

i loved reading this! great post!


thatsorad said...

That is so AWESOME! Love your phone and photos!!!

Serously, email me if you like about any jean...I know more about the brands we carry but I could also help you if you were thinking about some other brands....the cool thing is most people I help I do not rEAlly know their style or what their body type is and I know your's so that in it's self can really help narrow it down. There are a gazilian awesome jean companys out there. It is about finding the pair that you really super love! you can email me or post a comment with any questions!

June Paski said...

great post!


SabinePsynopsis said...

notjustmedical - a lipstick case... That's it! Ignorant me!

Clare said...

I want the contents of your bag! Don't worry about the Blackberry thing, someone asked me to fill in my details on their Blackberry yesterday and I was there for about 10 minutes before she rescued me...



Lewis William said...

Such a lovely idea! If anything, the contents of a handbag can be more intimate than the contents of our heads!



I used to have a mobile like yours!!! it was my second one and it was a long time ago, I am surprised to see that yours still works!!! High tech stuff is good, however being obsessed about it, about the last high tech issue, is not...bravo for you!

I can't believe I am here at your list! It is a great honor! Thanks a lot for that...it means so much for me :)

all my love,


Sher said...

Oh I adore Chanel lipstick! It's a staple :)

misslikey said...

Grace said...

I love that you still use that phone! I've been wanting to break away from these overly-technical phones and go back to my OG Nokia.

Love Grace.
