What's In Your Bag?


So I've discovered this little thrill on Polyvore of illustrating what's in your bag right now - a simple little task but one that really illustrates what kind of person you are, I find. While some people have tiny bottles of hand sanitizer and globs of clean tissues, others have grocery lists that they've found abandoned in the supermarket and books on philosophy. It's such a thrill to be able to get a quick peek into someone else's life, even if it's just for a second, and come out of it saying that you know a little bit more about them.

So here are the rules!
- Dump out your bag.
- Take an inventory of everything in there (no cheating - don't clean it out beforehand!)
- Dig through Polyvore or Google images and find images of what you see.
- Make a set and share it with the world!

Post the results on your own blog or share them in a comment right here on Cocoa! Get hoppin', bunnies, and show us what's in your bag!

Always,
Penelope ♥

Brilliant as usual ;)

My bag: Two pens, wallet, 3 reciepts, soft lips chapstick, book: how to uncage a girl, yellow sunglasses, cellular phone, one giant heart ring, keys to my house and other things, and what looks like fortune cookie crumbs.
Interesting...

Always,

If I had a bag, I'd certainly do this little mind exercise, but I have a wallet... hm, expired CPR card, library card, Arby's card, Kroger card, 3 years worth of school ID's, free panty/10$ off bra Victoria's Secret card (yay!), plenty of expired giftcards used for opening locks in our house... and 0.75$ dollars in change.

Thanks for saying my music taste is good! ^^ That's a great compliment.

Hi Penelope! I just recently started following your blog...as in about 2 months and counting!

Here's my compilation:

I actually wrote a blog about this today, lol.
