What's in your handbag?


How's it going?

I'm sufficiently back to 'normal' now I've had my hair done.  Over the past couple of weeks I'd gone for the 'highlighted' effect, but after two hours in the hands of an expert, my tresses are back to black - well dark brown!

After last week's blog about my gorgeous shoe boots and tote bag from Lotus Shoes I was thinking what's in my handbag?
What makes it so heavy?  I admit to stuffing everything in and then forgetting to take it out again, but sometimes I really do think I'm carrying the kitchen sink in it!

The Arvida tote bag I told you about last week see here is a beautiful bag which neatly holds everything I actually 'need'.

There's three pockets inside this navy blue bag, one especially for my phone, two others to hold my keys, lipstick and sunglasses.
The large tan purse sits with ample room in the bottom, leaving plenty of room for a scarf and gloves.
With the long handles, I can either hold the bag or carry it over my shoulder, leaving both hands free  to sift through the racks and pick out new purchases!

Now I've got this gorgeous bag I'm going to try and kerb my bag cramming habit & keep everything neat, tidy and in it's place.

How do you keep your bags?  Are they small neat with everything where it should be, or do you have a 'kitchen sink' type of bag?
I'd love to hear your comments.

Catch up tomorrow ... x
