You asked the questions and I've answered them.
What's in My Handbag/Purse?
Well for starters, money. Can't go anywhere without that after all. And along with my keys and my bank card that would normally be all I need. However, I work at a department store (in the fitting room mostly) and I arrive earlier than needed most times. Also being in the fitting room can be slow and boring at times. For those times, I also put a book in my bag, as well as my latest stitching craft and drawing project. It allows me to NOT go mad from boredom ;)
