What's In My Bag?

I've been loving this In My Bag meme that has been floating around Blogsville. It's really interesting seeing what other gals have got in their bags and comparing it to what you've got. Now, my turn :D I get to share with you what's in my bag; please don't doze off lol.

I was tagged by Chic Therapy, YNC Lounge, Dith, Fashion Phoenix, Lohi's Creations and Nikkisho (and you all who where too lazy to write names but instead tagged everyone reading your posts :p) Thanks a lot babes! You rock! I'm glad to finally be posting this after Ginger sent me a threat email shudder! The deal, which i'm sure you pretty much know, is to take a picture of my bag and contents, explain the contents, and tag other bloggers. Here goes:

My Bag: I inherited this bag from my mom (no, I didn't steal it, I inherited it). This is oddly the only big black bag i've got and i use it to work every weekday. I'm killing it fast and surely (you don't even want to know what it looks like inside) but it's comfy!
What's in it: The following are usually in my bag:
A) Fusion Lifestyle Directory: I attended the last Fusion event (where designers exhibit their work) and i've been walking around with their directory. Loads of business cards I collected are in it too. I've got my eye on a few features from there cause mehn are those designers talented!

B) Book-Everything Bad Is Good For You: I just finished reading this. It's about the author's viewpoint on pop culture and how, contrary to popular belief, pop culture isn't making us dumb, but is actually making us smart. Whew! I agree with him to an extent. I mean, if you're watching something like 24 (the series) you'll be doing loads of thinking as you watch the movie. BUT, if you're watching something like Beavis and Butthead...well...

C) Passport Photographs: I always have passport photos following me around. Funny, they're not in my wallet. Somehow i've left them in a pack one set of passports came in and i've kept adding to the pack ever since

D) Vitamin C Tablets: My Grandmother forced these on me when I went home last weekend. I hate medicine, even if it's supposed to be sweet. I had to take one in front of her, but I haven't touched it since.

E) Perfume: Ahem...speaks for itself. And it's there for precautionary measures cause a lot of times I rush out of the house forgetting to spray any on.

F) Eye Shadow and Lip Gloss: This pack contains six eye shadows and four lip glosses. I don't make up out of the house, so I've hardly touched the eye shadows. But the lip glosses are almost gone (the only touch ups i do are with lip gloss).

G) Flash Drive: For stealing people's documents, movies, and music. Be prepared :D

H) Bad Wrist Watch: I've been meaning to take it in for repairs for a while now, but i haven't gotten round to it X_x

I) Pens: I've always got pens. The more i get them, the more i loose them! I dunno!

J) Always Sanitary Pad: I've always got extras in my bag. In secondary school, I was the go-to girl for pads hehe. I should have charged them hard core money but alas, my business sense developed late

K) Wallet: This holds money, all my ID cards, ATM cards (and one of my mother's hehe), and some complimentary cards i don't want to misplace

L) Notepad: This is just for scribbles- i've got a bigger one in my office and at home

M) Blackberry: Funny enough, i'm not that addicted to this phone. But i might have forgotten how to make and receive calls cause it seems like such a waste of money in light of chatting and voicenotes. Also, i love that i can google anything anytime.

N) Nokia: I got this when my Blackberry was misbehaving. That thing crashed! So when it got repaired i decided to buy another line for this phone. Now i get to use it as a business line so it's all good

O) Gum: Between my sister and i, these don't even last a week. But i keep buying them cause i love the minty taste- good for masking hunger and staying awake at meetings

P) Hand Cream: It seems like the colder i get the dryer my hands get; and my office is like a freezer. I keep applying this all day long cause dry palms are so darn irritating

Q) Lip Gloss: This is the only make up item i CANNOT do without. I used to have a university professor who always complained about my glossy lips. hehe! This one is almost finished but i've got lots more in my makeup stash.

R) Envelop of Doe: I'm part of a little co-oporative at work and i'm supposed to have 'submitted' my money. I've been walking around for a week or so with this. I better give it (though it hurts me to *sniff*).

S) Complimentary Card: I've only just started my business (well, part of it-i'll tell you about it later) and i'm looking for templates for my business cards. This is a front runner candidate; it's got some scribbles of changes i want

T) Razors: I just bought this pack. I bet i'll loose it all by next week anyway.

U) Blackberry Battery: This is my old battery which i changed. I think this new one might be a fake so i'm holding on to this one still

V) Camera USB: This should be in my computer bag with all my other unused wires How did it get in here?

W) Batteries: My camera is always running out of power so i've always got extra batteries. There's little worse than trying to take a fun picture and the camera goes dead!

Missing here are: My iPod (what would i do without music?!) which my sister was using, my phone USB (also my phone charger cause the normal one blew up) which is right now attached to my laptop, Sunglasses (which i remove from my bag after every day) and my Samsung camera, which snapped these crappy pictures!

Whew!! This was a lot! How about a game to shake things up. Can you spot the difference (only one) between the picture below and the one above? Hehe.
If you read this to the end, I hail and thank you cause darn is this long! And my fingers hurt from all this typing. I'm supposed to tag several bloggers but i'm pretty sure almost everyone has been part of this meme! Buuuuut, i'd like to tag a few bloggers i discovered not too long ago: Joie De Vie; Zuri Perle, Zeldan Festus, Candace (Wild Spring), Titi's Passion, Through My Aiz, and The Young Radicals (the female half of course lol).


  1. I've tried to spot the difference till I'm going cross-eyed but no go. Do tell or maybe someone who doesn't use glasses will see it, lol...

    It wasn't boring! I know when you're typing, you just think it's too long and so boring but really I didn't feel this while I was reading it.
    When You're more concerned in trying to tell what the different items in the picture are, you don't even care about the long text.

    I can't see anything more than the one Darbie spotted. Or is there? :)

  6. I like the buckle design on your bag oh. I read it to the end and it wasnt boring.

  7. I spot similarities between what's in your bag and the other bags i've seen,not scary at all.
