What’s in Your Bag?

What’s in Your Bag?
Carly Jacobs

I was tagged by the delightful Flying Saucer to give everyone a peek inside my handbag. I was considering giving my handbag a make-over before revealing all but I figured it’s no fun if I do it that way. So here is exactly what is inside my handbag today and a pic of the bag itself. Minus a few gum wrappers and a rather questionable pear…


* Body Shop Mango Body Butter * Tiny bug coin purse * Cupcake lip gloss * Staff card * Dendy movie session times * Receipts from Borders, The Art Store and the cafe Cream * Moleskine Diary * Moleskine Reporter Notebook * 2 mint green tea bags * Round nosed jewellery pliers * Ugly gym head band * My phone and case * Lucas paw paw ointment * Vaseline with aloe vera * Face of Australia lip gloss tube * Ice Drops * Creepy doll purse with tiny jewellery tools in it * Ipod shuffle (with a strange mix of Les Mis and Billy Joel on it) * Panadol * Keys (My keyring says ‘Joan’ it was a gift from the director of the last play I did. My character was called Joan. It confuses the hell out of people and I love it!) * Yellow eel skin wallet * Tiny pen * Sunglasses * I also have my camera and USB cord in there but they are currently in use.

Yes I carry as least four lip-glosses with me. I counted a few weeks ago and I had seven in there. I need therapy.

And this is the bag I am carrying today. If you think that this is an Andy Warhol Campbells Soup tin knock off you would be entirely incorrect.

It happens to be the completely unrelated ‘Lampballs’ soup tin bag. So there.

And now I tag Six O’Clock Style to do the same thing!

    Beth – Oh it is too! She’s just photographed at a strange angle. My lovely friend Tim gave me that for my birthday and was so delighted when he gave to me he shouted ‘It’s a creepy doll purse!!!’ So now that’s what I call it. Sorry to offend a Bltyhe fan! 🙂
    And my lips ARE hooked. That’s why I have Vaseline and Lucas’ in there too. I’m a real lip licker so I can’t quit!

    Kerrin – Alcohol units? Like Bridgett Jones? V good. 🙂 I write all that crap down. And stuff that I did that day. The notebooks are crazy useful too. It was kind of fun to share! Although it’s made me realise my bag is really boring and I should have more interesting things in there. Like snuff boxes or pearl handled pistols…

    Ha ha! As if you weren’t implying that I carry useless shit. And it’s even worse than that because I only changed handbags yesterday… you should see all the crap I left in the bottom of my other bag. 😉

    that aint just any old “creepy doll” purse young lady. that’s a blythe doll!
    i should know, i have 8 of them 😉

    i don’t carry any lipgloss in my bag as i don’t use it, i reckon your lips get hooked then they look crap whenever you don’t use it!!

    I LOVE Moleskin diaries and have the exact same one as you. Plenty of room for appointments, plus blank pages for recording useless trivia (such as movies I saw this week, alcohol units consumed, shopping lists, and books I want to read) – fantastic! Thanks for sharing the contents of your bag … it’s fun to be a sticky beak!

    I now feel a whole lot better! I thought I carried way too much useless crap in my bag (not saying your stuff is useless crap my dear), but just goes to show that others do carry just as much stuff asd me!

    Oh that would be heavenly! I’ll keep an eye out and let you know if I find one!
