Today, we continue with another snooping session as we have done for the past 4 weeks! So what is this about? “In My Bag Snoop Style Series” is a fun session where we go snooping in the handbag of our friends. They give us access and we see exactly what they carry around in their bags daily. You know women love their bags so this is a perfect opportunity to see what a group of them really carry around. So c’mon and lets go!

Why does she carry what she carries in this bag? See below…


She is an engineer by day with a passion that lies in the creative field. Yefon is a blogger by night, blogging on all things entertainment, tech and business from Cameroon. This is what and she carries and why!

In my bag, I carry:-

> A hand lotion to use when hands are dry.

> My work ID – my bag side pocket is the safest place for it so that I don’t have to keep looking and need it for access.

> My portable phone charger which is a life saver in times of low phone battery!

> My charger plugs to connect whatever gadget to charge anywhere possible – innovation at its best!

> My cheque book which I started carrying since I came to the US for those eventuality cases.

> My umbrella for the light rainy days, one has to be prepared.

> My case with sunshades for my commute when the sun is out.

> My lens cleaner to clean my glasses and shades.

> My little case contains a few days supply of allergy medicine and vitamins. Staying healthy and fit is important non?!

> Nail polish, I have ended up with 2 in my bag since as I had planned to do my nails at a saloon during the week and I usually carry mine along.

> A lip balm, this is a must have against chapped lips.

> My head phones, she is my best friend because I am a music junkie. I need to relax and blank out the noise in order to focus.

> My wrist bands which I carry for a cause.

> The blue dotted case carries my smaller loose items in an attempt to keep my bag organised.

So there you have it!! Women will be women…see you next time!

Hello all, today brings us to the second part of our snooping fun series where our PR girl Cynthia is playing detective in the handbags of some of her friends. Don’t you sometime wonder what your friends or other women carry in their bags? Well, we all know women will be women right?! C’mon and let’s do some snooping!!


In her handbag this is what Ms Mbole had to tell us…

I always have a small planner (blue item) in my bag since as I spend 70% of my week in meetings. I also have my make-up bag with lipstick and lipgloss in it – a must for the cold harsh winter. I also must have a hand sanitizer because I am a hardcore germaphobe.

I cannot survive without some gum, oh yes it is a must because you never know when you have to offer someone with bad breath some haa haaa!!!

The other blue note book is to write down ideas that come to me for my blog (I currently run a style/fashion blog called TheHotJem) and for me to jot my to do list or sometimes I write my poems in it and keep for later. I also keep a puzzle book, essential for my daily commuting schedule to NYC. It allows me to play on it sometimes when I need to.

The rest is my iPod to listen to while I’m commuting to and from work and obviously my other essentials such as my purse, glasses and more make-up for when I need to touch up.

So that is it from our series today. Watch out for the next handbag…!
