What do the contents of your handbag say about you?

What do the contents of your handbag say about you?

…..A lot apparently.

According to handbag therapist (yes there is such a thing) and life coach Debbie Percy – by looking at the bag itself and some key contents in it – it can reveal much about your personality.

I saw Debbie conduct two “handbag readings” in a group situation last night, one of a handbag and one of a manbag –  and  she was spot on with what she said about the bag owners’ outlook on life.

Christian was the proud owner of a manbag  which held a copy of Time Magazine, a leather bound notebook,  a sunglasses case, an iPod and a tie. 

Debbie revealed that he is an extremley organised guy, who loves order in his work life and aspires for higher things.   Christian admitted she was correct (she delved into things a little more too) so take my word for it, this therapy is the real mccoy.

So, I’m now a believer and am just dying for Debbie to have a nosy in my own handbag! God knows what she would think – I’m currently carrying around a black straw summer basket which contains a set of keys, a pistachio green Purificación García wallet, a brolly, mobile phone, a pair of runners (to get me from A to B quick smart, I usually change into heels when I reach my destination), a notebook and pen, my 2009 agenda/diary, a pair of Versace sunglasses, a pair of reading glasses, red Rimmel lipstick, Chanel bronzer & brush,  and a mini bottle of Joe Malone “pomegranate” perfume.  (Yes it is a large bag!).

Could your handbag or manbag win you €1,000?

    Got a new bag just recently, handmade in West Kerry, divine leathers with real suede lining that’s to die for. Wish I could curl up in it right now. http://www.holdenleathergoods.com/
    This means it’s reasonably tidy but I usually have some toys and childrens books and enough rubbish to make me too embarassed to show it to anyone – I think you’ve inspired a new resolution – “keep my bag fit to show to a therapist”
