No, I am not hungover.....but while taking my daily morning walk today I decided that today needs to be the day for a new handbag. I have been using the same handbag all winter long, and although I have enjoyed carrying it, the zipper became stuck once again....and seems to be too stubborn to let it's tough bite onto the lining go.
Needless to say I don't want my cell phone, keys or (heaven forbid) my wallet falling out while they are "half in the bag", so out it goes with the trash today!
Probably a sign that I should take advantage of the fact that my fashionista daughters are still in town, and will be glad to go shopping with me and my credit card at the drop of a hat (or purse in this case)! We affectionately call the girls the fashion police around here, as they definitely are way more hip than the parents~and often dictate how we are going to look when spending time cruising around with them. Does anyone else out there have a fashion cop in their brood~geeez?!
Here is what makes my bag heavy enough to require a forklift to raise it up to the hook in my closet:
Too fat and also outdated wallet. Now it's not fat with money or credit cards....frankly I can't figure out for the life of me what makes it weighs 2 tons~but out it will go too.
The ubiquitous cell phone~we all have them, and luckily this one doesn't weigh much. Looky who has the place of prominence as my wallpaper:-)
Keys, necessity of modern life....and my Wriskey from Tara, which makes finding them easier.
Humongous sunglass case with my prescription Coach sunglasses that I need for driving (and looking like a Miami girl:-).
Sweet pink Kleenex holder......what can I say~I have allergies!
Large bottle of hand cleaning germicide, I HATE to get sick.
Little vintage beaded " pill purse"depending on the day~perhaps an entire pharmacy is in here.
Three checkbooks.....doesn't everyone have three of these~lol!? One carries my biz checks and my tax resale certificate for when I am website shopping, one is my personal checkbook and then the other our household checkbook.....although in my book~credit card is KING!
Papers, pens, lip glosses, hairbrush and other assorted junkola.
My favorite gum, Orbit Cinnamint for that "Just Brushed Clean Feeling".
So.........if you ever see this girl trotting around Miami with that bag again, please stop and report her to the police (fashion police that is)!!! Now..........fess up~ WHAT'S IN YOUR BAG?
I am honored to have received a You Make My Day Award from the darling Lisa at palepinkandroses
Please stop by and say hi to her when you have a chance!
Will hopefully blog at'cha more on Friday.......lots to say!
XOXO to all of my sweet friends~
