My Life Inside A Bag

I’ve been tagged by Manay Beng

I guess the idea is to share my most favored bag (at the moment) and reveal what’s inside. Mine would be a Benetton Carry All Linea IT7 Bag, which has the UCB monogram all over. I have two of these bags, one in chocolate brown and a black one (shown below). What I like most about this bag is the storage space, I can put all my stuff (personal and office supplies) and still have some left. I can also convert it from a messenger bag to a hand bag. Neat, huh?

What's In Your Bag

Now, what’s inside? Pretty much, my life! Things I would need to at least last a day. There’s a good book (Jessica Zafras: Twisted Travels), a book light, my precription eyeglasses, my Rayban Wayfarers (from many years ago, I call it recycled), sanitizer slash lotion, my 8125 cellphone, an LG cellphone (issued by the office), pocket journal (not shown, left it at work), Ipod Shuffle, my D&B  wristlet (contains my contact lens, cleaner and rehydrating drops) and wallet. There you go! How about you? Do you carry your life inside your bag like me? 

What's In Your Bag

Here are friends who I wish would join this tag: Abby, Sis Thess, Meeya, Weng, Lulu, Kris, Pinky, Bangge and Jen. Thanks in advance, mwaaah!

    Pretty neat – so girlie and gadgetized. I like travellers bag but now that I don’t normally “go out”, I don’t need to bring any except for the door keys and wallet.

    I am curious with the Zafra book. I stumbled upon her site, don’t know if she’s the same person. And you actually have a book light. Interesting!

    Wow very neat! Lupigan ko nimo da kay naa pa man kay lotion :). Hehehe, I am not carrying my life inside my bag but my whole kaartihan. Meaningless stuff so to say.

    Dong Nell, thanks a lot for participating. Have a wonderful weekend diha nimo 🙂

  3. Meeya · December 14, 2007

    whoa, hindi ako nakatakbo ng mabilis na-tag mo na naman ako 😀 sige i will do this together with the wallet thing. 🙂 napaka-organized mo talaga hehe. compared to you i am a slob pero i do have the excuse of being a harassed mom para lusot. 🙂 i love your raybans! very vintage, hehe.

    K: medyo nga girlish ang dating, but i still insist on calling my bag a “man purse.” hahahah! this jessica zafra was a gift from a friend, and i love reading her essays. i intend to get her other books, called twisted tales yata yon. i wish i can get out of the house with just keys and wallet, pero mukhang impossible. i feel incomplete not carrying a bag and my abobot, hehehe. and the book light, mahilig akong magbasa sa dilim. weird ko noh? thanks for your kind comment, God bless 😀

    you’re welcome, was very glad to participate. it gave me a reason to do a little clean up din, hehehe. nahilig man ko sa lotion uy, palibhasa eh dali mag dry akong skin. i’ve used way too much sanitizer kasi sa ofc, maano ning murag balat buwaya na. hahaha! abi nimo manay beng, chada imong mga bag asta tong wallet nimong tambok. hehehe, me really like it a lot. thanks for the tag and your kind comment, have a wonderful week end. mwaaah 🙂

    MEEYA: sensya ka na hah, nabiktima na naman kita. hehehe! pero take your time hah, there really is no rush to this. i know your a busy mom and wifey. naku, di naman din ako neat freak. nagkataon lang na nalinis ko ang kalat sa bag, hahaha. the raybans, they’re old but still functional pa naman. besides, me love vintage din eh, heheheh. thanks for the kind comment, have a great day dear 😉

  10. Pinky · December 16, 2007

    Naku, na-tense naman ako sa tag mo, Nell! After seeing your very “OC-ish” stuff, I’m definitely going to look like a slob with what I’ll post – hahaha! 😛

  11. bw · December 16, 2007

    You’re pretty organized ! All my ids and cards are in my wallet, at my left butt pocket 🙂

    I take my laptop bag with me to the office daily – minus the laptop which I leave at home for remote access 🙂 My laptop bag is bulging – contains all my checkbooks, bills, important distaster recovery docs at the office, newspaper, magazines – and my daily baon of banana and oranges hehe 🙂

    Hello Nell . . . this will only be a quick one dahil I still have lots of “domestic” crap to do on a late Sunday afternoon. Instead of doing the laundry, etc., here I am visiting various blog sites. Anyhoo, I’ll try to do this tag later in the evening . . . until then, hope you had a great weekend.

    Me again Nell . . . as mentioned in my blog, I’m too lazy to take a picture of my handbag’s contents so I used the same pictures that I took back in October and posted them. (I still have laundry to do! Arghh!) I’m waiting for the clothes to dry so I figured I “sneak” a little bit of blogging. Anyhoo, the contents of my handbag are still the same as when I took them with the exception of my new camera. Although it looks more organized because right now, I have so many receipts that I just stashed from today’s Christmas shopping. Thanks for tagging me and again, hope you had a great weekend.

  15. sardonicnell · December 16, 2007

    TONI: thanks for the blog visit and your kind compliment. me coordinated? nagkataon lang siguro. but most of my stuff are usually in neutral colors (except clothes, since i like them colorful), so it’s easy to mix and match 😉

    BANGGIGAY: would love to see your bag and anik anik, regardless of it’s condition. ako din kaya minsan eh magulo at makalat ang bag. besides this is for fun lang naman, dba? btw, how was your KL trip? did you get to see your fave tennis players? that must be lots of fun 😀

    PINKY: o’ cmon dear, ako din kaya minsan eh magulo ang bag. nagkataon lang na nalinis ko yan bago ako na-tag, hehehe! kaya post ka na hah? love yah lots, mwaaah 🙂

    BW: all my cards and id’s in my wallet as well, kaya lang i dont put it on the butt pocket. malaki kasi eh! (i mean the wallet hah) and di rin kasi ako nasanay na nilalagay ko sa rear side, i’d rather carry or clutch it. hehehe! palibhasa eh bakla kasi ako, hahahah. and my bag use to be bulky din cause of food, but since i now have a fridge in my ofc eh di na ako nagdadala. hahahaha, ang siba ko talaga noh? :mrgreen:

    LULU: i thank you so much for doing this tag, besides your very busy day. naku, okay lang naman na old pic. the impt thing is you join in the fun. dba? i hope you were able to finish your house chores. which reminds me that i also need to do my laundry tonight. i have one load to wash and it’s waiting for me in the laundry room. hahahah! hope you had the most fabulous week end and thanks again. mwaaah 😀
