Thanks for reading


  1. It's crazy how all the little things add up! Makes you think twice about leaving your bag unattended :O xx

  2. Hey Gillian, that's a whole lot of things in your bag everyday, stay hidden (*tongue*). Liked the design of your bag, though it looks small, but I couldn't believe it will store all above mentioned items. I didn't know that doing a "What's in my bag" is now a public. I like handbags, but I don't keep it with me all the time, I more likely to keep a long strap handbags. Thanks for sharing your story, found it interesting.
