What's in my handbag?

I commented on Mrembo's blog that none of ladies tagged on the "What's in My handbag?" posts had included pads or tampons in them. I thought maybe women stopped doing that and no one gave me the memo...So, she tagged me. And now I have to tell you whats in mine.

  2. Moleskin / Pen.

  • Various hair pins and clips- useless anyway as i cut my hair. 
  • Mini shampoos and hand lotions from various hotels. They all smell the same...tacky. But they come in handy. when someone asks me for hand lotion, and i don't think they are nice enough to get my B&BW ones, I give these.  I am men like that...

    Large bag indeed. Must weight a ton. wonder, though, how come men don't carry handbags? Sounds that I could carry my whole house in one...

    Ss, It is very heavy. Apart from the make-up stuff, which are little bottles / tubes, everything else i do use / need.

    Men don't like baggage, in every sense of the word :)
