What's in Your Handbag?

Its time for a Monday meme. I stole this one from Michele at Life, Lightly Salted ... and yes, I've dumped out the contents of my purse for all the world to see. Festive, isn't it?!

Here are the rules:

(This meme was started by Mimi, Queen of Memes )

Find a safe quiet place free of significant others, nosey meme makers, priests, nuns, all things religious and men in general. (If you're a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.)

1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile
2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents
3. Be brave and explain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.
4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves
5. Answer these questions:

Describe the contents of your handbag:

One over stuffed wallet, my pool/gym I.D., my gym lock, a MetroCard, one black hair elastic, my Sephora Beauty Insider Card, one gray eye-liner, blue Bic pen, 3 lipsticks, one powder compact, one black bobby pin, my cell phone, a pocket flashlight card, my Diva business cards, a memory stick, Orbit Sangria Fresca gum, Pepto Bismol tablets, Tylenol Severe Sinus tablets, Advil Cold & Sinus tablets, a couple of receipts, a bottle of Pepcid (which also contains some regular Advil and one Celebrex), assorted sugar free Ricola throat drops, a bunch of gum wrappers, and one Band Aid.

What's the most important thing in your handbag?

My wallet ... and maybe the lipstick and compact. Ok, the MetroCard's essential too.

What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag?

The assortment of meds. I'm a walking pharmacy! I only take the Pepcid on a regular basis - the rest is "just in case." I like to be prepared.

What's the smallest thing in your handbag?

The bobby pin.

Is there anything illegal in your handbag?

Not that I'm aware of.


I'm not going to associate a tag with this meme ... and rightly so ... not everyone is willing to offer the contents of their purse to the world. The Diva has nothing to hide. Do feel free to steel this and post it yourself if you're brave enough and so inclined. Let me know if you do, its fun to snoop!

Lastly, I must note for the record that I do not use the word "handbag" - I'd be more likely to use "purse" or "pocketbook" ... which, with my Connecticut/New York accent comes out sounding like "pock-a-book!"

So, what's in your handbag??? And which word do you use? Curious Diva wants to know!

I have the same MetroCard!! LOL Not in my handbag, but plastered on my desk as a memorabilia from NYC :)

I'll have to do this meme tomorrow :D I have nothing to hid either! :)

My goodness do you fit all of that in that little purse?

The Diva on a Diet said...

Oooh, can't wait to see what's in your bag, MCU. Funny about the MetroCard!

LOL, Michele! The purse is actually bigger than it looks, but yeah, its packed to the gills with all that and more. For some reason my keys, sunglasses and reading glasses were not in my purse the day I did this meme - but you can add that to the haul. Ack!
