5.) What do the contents of your handbag/purse “say” about you?
(inspired by Kristi from Live And Love Out Loud
For this post I decided to literally dump it out without cleaning:
First of all I carry a bright purple leopard print purse with a giant flower on the front and a huge fake diamondy center. If that doesn’t say something about me, I don’t know what does!
~ On to my contents ~
Two glasses cases: One holding prescription sunglasses and one holding my fake glasses.
What one says is that I like my eyes to be protected from the sun and to be able to see without randomly running people over with my car.
The other gives you a window into my crazy insecurities. I hate how I look without glasses; I have worn glasses since I was in elementary school. I literally will put in contacts and wear fake glasses, I know, it’s horrible!
My checkbook: In my ugly old blue checkbook holder. Not even sure why I carry it I never use it! It says I am so a debit card girl!
My wallet: It’s a cute Thirty-One Bag ™ wallet in Cool Ditzy…yes that is the official print. It’s crammed full of discount and member cards with my id and precious debit card thrown in. If I can get a discount or store credit back or even a punch card then I have it.
I’m pretty sure that says I’m thrifty, not cheap…
(at least I hope that what it says)
One from Mickey-D’s for a (surprise surprise) Iced Caramel Latte. Those are my guilty pleasure and one from Starbucks makes me even happier. Guess I jumped on the coffee craze train many years ago!
One from Jose Pepper’s for dinner and my drinks. That’s from Monday and it not the norm. My assistant Girl Scout leader and BFF Jen and I went to discuss this week’s meeting. After everything on both of our shoulder’s lately, we needed margaritas and they were $1.99 each. Couldn’t pass that up….cause I’m thrifty, yo!
The last one is a Chopper Reward Statement…..just so you know I have 1000 points, a whole dollar off gas baby! : p
5 pens: a Sharpie, a scrapbook pen (not sure why, don’t ask), a black Bic, a blue Bic and blue pin advertising a heating and cooling company.
I like to write and hate not having my own pin. I’m a control freak, it’s true!
BeautiControl Lip Apeel: Which I never use. I roll around with cracked lips and freaking Lip Apeel and lip balm in my purse. I don’t think about myself, that’s what that says. I can remember to put two meds on my daughters boo boo’s twice a day, never let my baby have diaper rash, but never put balm on my own lips.
Coupon: $5.00 off Similac baby! Thrifty!
Business Cards, my own and a lady who walked up at Jose Pepper’s because she heard us say Girl Scouts: This says I’m prepared and I’m nice when someone rudely interrupts my dinner and meeting planning session. My margarita does not signify I’m not on business…HELLO!
Lab Result card from my OBGYN: So you now know I get my annual check up done and get to call in for results.
Hopefully that says I am totally responsible and is not just TMI.
My coin purse: If you couldn’t see it well in the pic, it’s super cute. I got it at a boutique in Parkville ages ago and it’s a hand painted fashionista chick. She’s all cutesy and glittery. I love it because it is adorable and always has quarters.
That says I like stuffed animal claw machines and air hockey. You may not have got that from it, but trust me.
LifeQuest church card: also from the lady who walked up at Jose Pepper’s. Girl Scouts means ‘I will pimp your not for profit event!’ didn’t you know that?
My cute Nail kit case and the contents of which were all over the purse instead of in the case: This says I’m messy but take care of my nails.
Pillbox: It matches my nail kit and contains Benedryl and a Valium. Um yeah…….
Random key: *shrug* I really have no clue where it came from or what it goes to. Now you have a secret window into my air-headedness.
Black flower hair clip: My favorite accessory! I LOVE flower hair clips!!! Maybe that says I’m not quite grown-up yet or that I am comfortable not to care if I am almost 30 wearing a flower in my hair.
I prefer the latter.
The usual suspects that are missing…..cellphone and massive key chain with keys. Those get used at home so the were MIA in the pic.
