I have deviated slightly here.
Rather than my handbag, I thought I'd show my little 'important-bits-when-travelling' bag.
It's not very big, 17 x 10 cms, and came as a poppered insert to a larger make-up bag that came with a Clinique Bonus Time many moons ago.
It's what goes in my back-pack when going away.
Working from the top, I have a ball of foot insert and Compeed plasters, 'cos I never know when once comfy footwear becomes a pair of killer shoes!
There's cotton buds, a travel-size nail file that was designed by that bloke off The Apprentice.
A couple of fancy hair slides and a variety of hair elastics and hairgrips and bun pins.
Eyelash glue(!), and a selection of 'lucky charms; lucky pennies, a giant sequin that came off a stage costume, my flying pink pig from Christy, (one of my original blogger mates in the USA), and my ring from Vix. I have this as part lucky charm and part to get it mended (sorry Vix). The ring bit was loose and broke off so I need to find somewhere to solder a new one on. I do believe this was a ring that her mum made, so it is extra special.
Plasters, elastic bands, safety pins, a bit of ribbon, a piece of thin elastic, a wooden hoof stick and a waste bag. It might be one of those waste bags but it'll work on any number of levels!!
Finally, a handy little sewing kit, with threads, a needle and a button.
I am one of those people who is forever swapping my handbag, so depending what I'm doing, the contents change.
At the moment it is my pink skull & crossbones Custard Shop bag. Going for the summery vibe and needed a bag that a long cross-body strap, so I could be hands-free for taking Rene to the vet on Thursday morning as she had been retching and didn't sound too good. The vet said they could put an endoscope down to check there was no obstruction or we could try something to soothe the throat. I went for the latter and she is doing fine.
Will probably keep that bag on the go as I am taking her back for a check-up Monday afternoon.
