What is in your bag? Phone, keys, perfume, hand cream, make-up, the kitchen sink? We carry around so much everyday including, big bulging, hefty wallets. If you are like me your purse is busting at the seems. Wishful thinking would have it stuffed with money and this would be a poor me / 1st world problem tagged post then. I just seem to have a billion cards, receipts, a sterling 2p coin for me trolley in Tesco. The list goes on. I need all this stuff. I think. Awhile back i had got really sick of my usual handbags. Yes i loved how they looked and styling them with outfits. Carrying them, not so much. Id taken to switching to really small bags or…

This now infamous day was once only something our neighbours across the Atlantic went wild for. Black Friday takes place every year on the day after Thanksgiving. A day where stores put on discounts or special offers. I learnt of the phenomenon through my addiction to good-bad TV.

  I saw the bag below and it reminded me of something i have done for years. Adding a scarf to your handbag is a great styling trick. It adds colour and can create an expensive look to an old or bargain bag. This one has it done for you in the style of a small little silk scarf bow.
