What’s In Your Bag?

On Valentine’s Day, Afoma did the What’s In My Bag tag (see her colourful post here) and she nominated us. Ebun also did the tag, over here. Because I’m a little nosy, I kind of enjoyed reading about the contents of their bags so it was only fair to do the tag. Although, I think you may be a little disappointed here. Nothing interesting in my bag. Without further ado:

  1. Sunglasses- my favourite pair, they’re from Forever 21. I’ve had them for almost 2 years now. I rarely wear them these days, mainly because walking under the hot sun is no longer a part of my daily routine. NYSC days, they were a staple. Also I’m very very shortsighted, my prescription glasses are not optional. I can only wear Sunnies when my eyes aren’t really in use. I still carry them around though, just in case.
  2. Bad Feminist- I pledged to read 50 books this year, and so far, I’ve been slacking. Will still make it! This book has been rotating from bag to bag since January. Enough disrespect, I should finish it by next week. And then, another book will be put on bag duty, to keep me company in uncomfortable spaces, and during long waits.
  3. A notebook- the black notebook under the novel, to scribble in when I’m on the go. It isn’t always this one in particular, I just make sure to carry a notebook.
  4. White Powder- because most days, Lagos is too hot for makeup, in my opinion.
  5. Power bank + Phone cable
  6. Pens
  7. Lip balm (in the heart shaped Beauty Boss tin)
  8. Lippie: I always carry whatever lipstick I’m wearing for the day, although I rarely need to reapply because making it through the day with my lipstick very very intact is one of my many talents. ^_^ These days it’s usually either MAC Fabby or my (and the people’s) fave, Ruby Woo.
  9. Ventolin Inhaler: a necessary prop since I was 10. Funny thing- every time I think I’ve outgrown my Asthma & stop taking my inhaler with me, it comes back like LOL JK.
  10. Phone
  11. Wallet- this very pretty wallet was a Christmas present from my aunt. :’) And, I always have bobby pins in my wallet.

So, to keep this going, I’m tagging in no particular order:

  1. Kim- Dark Child Love Thy Hair
  2. Sandra- Naija Girl Next Door
  3. Oyime- Oyime’s Musings
  4. Tuke- Tuke’s Quest
  5. Eleanor- Eleanor J’Adore
  6. Nafisah- Coily Head of Hair
  7. Alex- Nappy Haired
  8. Amma- All Things Amma Mama
  9. Lade- Out Of My Head
  10. YOU! If you’re interested, this is me tagging you. 🙂

I hope you do the tag!

What’s in YOUR bag?

Love, 

AB,

P.S. MeeMee did the tag a few hours ago, her bag is more interesting than mine- see it here if you missed it.

  1. Thanks for the tag! I think I need to join you in your book challenge too! I’m really slacking when it comes to reading novels.

  2. I want that novel AB. Your bag must be so nice to go through, very clean and functional. My own ehn😥 Thanks for tagging me 😀 I want to do this

  3. I can’t remember the last time I used white powder!
    I used to carry my power bank around too until someone stole my USB at work and then someone else exchanged the replacement USB I got with a spoilt one at work.
    Moral: Don’t ever give your colleagues your USB cable.

  4. Love the shades. I am also short sighted. My glasses are one of the things I don’t mind spending ridiculous amount of time ( sometimes money) shopping for, because I want a perfect pair for that the next year or two. As result I shop for them in advance. My justification, they have the most wear hence value of all my belonging. Having one of my frames tinted dark is a life saver for summer. I have high prescription so I get the special thin/ extra thin lens ( depending on the size of the frame) in put.

  5. Love the shades and lip balm.Looks like I will join in your book challenge. I am currently reading “A time to kill”, John Grisham
