Ever since I can remember, I have loved going through other people’s handbags. No shame. As a girl, I would go through my grandmother’s purse, my aunt’s, my mother’s. Anyone that would let me really. They were always good sports, and allowed the peculiar and inquisitive little MG to rifle through their handbags. I felt like the items women carried in their bags said a lot about them, in addition to the orderly vs. disorderly state of the bag itself. For example, my grandmother – she is a woman who is prepared for just about any situation. I learned this at a young age just by looking through her purse. I mean – anyone that carries plastic utensils, salt and pepper, and over the counter pain relief capsules is surely ready to face any challenge life throws at them. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized my “handbag profiling” proved accurate. She is the most intelligent and well equipped woman I know to date.
Today, it is a societal norm to share every aspect of our lives on the internet. So as you can imagine I was thrilled to find others sharing “What’s in My Bag” blog posts and YouTube videos alike. That’s right people, I am still up to my “handbag profiling” antics, just virtually. It’s more acceptable that way, don’t you agree? Anyway, when I received the Vera Bradley Carson Mini after hosting the “Sophisticated Traveler” event a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to showcase it somehow on the blog. What better way then my very own “What’s in My Bag” post?
