A Bag and A Tag

Sorry, but I’m gonna have to take you down.

The Innards of my purse.  You can tell a lot from a girl from the loot in her bag in which she keeps closely by her side.  It’s like a best friend.  It brings comfort when there is a dilemma, such as chapped lips or an emergent purchase of the perfect pants.  Where do you go first?  Your bag.  Then your real best friend (i.e. my husband).

Let’s explore.

Item A.
A camera.  And a sucky one at that.  This is not the one I use regularly (as you might have guessed since it was not in my hand at that moment…).  I have a trusty Cannon Camera.  Assumption from item:  I like to capture the moment.  I am a tourist.  Or I am a creepy people watcher. Maybe both.

Item B.
Sun Glasses.  Slightly retro.   I can’t get over that look.  And I can’t leave my doorstep in Peru without them.   The sun shines bright near the equator.  Assumption: I’m not a hermit and I like being in the sun.  Or maybe, I am a hermit and I hate the sun and I hide behind them.  Sunglasses are a tricky one to interpret.

Item C.
Coupons and Cards.  Pita Pit, Purple Turtle, Jamba Juice, and Borders.  There are so many assumptions here…  Eat your heart out.  And I do with discounts from my cards.  So…. lover of food and discounts.   Thrifty.  Or can’t say no to free square paper products to clutter my bag.  

Item D.
Make Up. I’m a girl.  Safe assumption here. 

Item E.
Buttons.  Who knows how long those have been in there.  Assumption:  shopper, sewer, likes the color grey.  And too lazy to ever take them out of her purse.

Item Z:
Lotion.  Bath and Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel.  Assumption: Loves Christmas and loves to saver that rich smell that comes once a year.  And has dry hands.   Boo.

That’s enough for me.  I hope you learned what you wanted to about me.  Even if you didn’t want to know, you made it this far in the read so ha.

Thanks Under Lock and Key for the Tag!  This was a juicy one.  Hmm…. I want a Jamba.

Well, since you asked, I got the purse at the Liz Claiborne Outlet in Park City, Utah in the wee early hours on Black Friday. It was terrifying but gratifying. Cost me only $9.
