What’s in my Blackcherry bag?

I decided it will be fun to do a post about what’s in my handbag at the moment. It’s kind of crazy because my handbag is in a mess right now so please don’t judge. 🙂 I have a ton of receipts and other little things.

Forget looking in a woman’s eyes – if you really want to know her secrets then look at and into her handbag! They say a woman’s handbag and its content says a lot about the type of person she is…

The space in this Blackcherry handbag is amazing, it can cater essentials for Kitana and I.

There’s days where I refuse to carry a nappy bag and a handbag around because it’s just too much work. I’m sure all the fashion mommy bloggers are thinking, “whaaaat?!” I end up using my handbag as a “nappy bag” which I know isn’t allowed but let’s face it moms, sometimes we have to do what’s convenient for us. I want to be stylish while carrying nappies in my handbag so I’ve decided to research a bit and find different colours/styles which offer the space I need.

Blackcherry provides women with affordable, stylish and confidence boosting fashion products and accessories. I’m in love with almost everything in their collection and I love that they catered for moms too.

      Hm, I don’t see a purse (or receipts) and couldn’t see bum creme or wet wipes either. I also double up my handbag so I normally have a bottle in there as well. Hehe

    What’s missing? The second most important item in your handbag – apart from your Blackcherry Bag of course 😉 Your wallet!

    Don’t fear though, I found the perfect Blackcherry quilted black wallet on sale at Spree for you, for only R169! What a steal!
