Sunday Sharing: What’s In My Bag

Today’s post is a little different than usual. I was tagged by fellow blogger Sukie to do a what’s in my bag photo meme thingy. She said it started with Yumeko’s idea, which is supposed to be an every Friday event. I haven’t had the time to go through Yumeko’s blog yet, but I had a look at this post, and it’s kinda cute. So, what the heck? Since I’m tagged, I’m going to join the party. If you have a blog yourself, YOU’RE TAGGED too. I don’t really care if it’s not Friday, but this is voyeuristic and I’m a busy body. I would love to read yours too, so give me your link in comments below 🙂

Let’s get started then.

1. Cellphone / Mobile phone


I bought this a little over a month ago. It’s a Samsung Galaxy Note and I’ve been loving it. I’ve been using iPhone for the past few years, and this new purchase is a breath of fresh air. I am loving the camera and the S-pen, not to mention the huge screen. No more squinting when surfing on my mobile!


2. Wallet / Purse / whatever you keep your money in


I bought this about 2 years ago, from Fossil. My bag was snatched, together with my brand new Coach wallet, and it broke my heart. Every time I notice a motorcyclist near me, my heart skips a beat, even now. So ladies, be very careful. They strike when you LEAST expect them to.


3. Something in your wallet (cards / coins / money / whatever)


Yeah, I realise they’re all membership cards of cosmetics companies. Sigh… what’s a girl to do… I AM a beauty blogger after all. I haven’t even shown you the rest of the cards in my wallet. Haha!


4. Makeup you carry on the go


This post made me realise I only carry lip products in my bag. They are Clinique chubby stick and Burt’s Bees lip balms. Also, blotting papers are a must! Keeps oilies at bay. The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is a sample I got just the other day. I completely forgot about it until I went through my bag!


5. Whatever else you wish to share from your bag


I should have included the mineral sunscreen in the previous entry, but oh well. I must have a pen (I keep one in every one of my bags) and of course, a hair clip. Hand sanitizer is also important so I keep my hands clean before I handle my girls my daughters (edited thanks to Paris’ comment. Now, I can’t stop thinking about my girls being my boobs!). Well, there are other things in my bag, such as those that every woman should carry in case of monthly emergency, but I’m not going to take a photo of it. I think these are enough for now 😉

There you have it. These are some of the little things that I have in my bag. Nothing exciting… but it’s better than having my bag filled with diapers and baby stuff! I had to carry mommy bag for at least 3 years, since the birth of my eldest. Since I am a mother of 2 toddlers now, I can finally have some ‘me’ stuff in the bag. LOL 😀

So, what do you have in your bag? Even if you don’t have a blog, you can always make a list. The comments are yours 🙂

  • I also only carry lip products too! Nothing else 🙂 Plus I had to giggle because “the girls” is usually a euphamism for boobs so the bit about the antibacterial sanitizer was a bit of a giggle 😉

    • Lily

      Rofl! Goes look for the strongest detergent and scrubs Paris’ dirty mind. I might have to word that sentence again. It does sound funny if people don’t know I have 2 daughters. Haha!

  • Thank you for joining in the fun, Lily! I’m due in for a phone upgrade in November and I’m also considering making the move over to the ‘dark side’ – Andriod phones but! I’m worried I’ll miss the simplicity of using iPhones (because I never used anything other than Blackberries)

    Another question would be: Why don’t I have Shiseido and Dior cards? I’m pretty sure I’m part of Shiseido’s loyalty scheme but I do not have a card!

    Yay for ladies like us who only carry lip products! I’ll let you in on a secret….. I actually carry 4 lippies in my handbag (lip balm, tinted lip balm, lipstick and gloss). A bit over the top, no? 😉

    • Lily

      Well, I have 3 lip products so we’re not too far off. If I wore lip gloss, I’d probably keep that in the bag too! What happened to your cards? Maybe they forgot to issue to you?

      • I don’t know, Lily! But everytime I purchase something I just give them my name and I *hope* I’m getting points by doing so! :s maybe I’ll get mum to ask them instore. =D

        • Lily

          I hope you’re not being short changed here! I think its good to check. Sometimes you get double points on your birthday month too 🙂
