The Dubai Fashion Blogger - What's REALLY in the bag?

I'm pretty new to this whole blogging thing, so when people ask me what kind of blogger I am Food? Lifestyle? Fashion? Entertainment? — I really have no idea.

One thing I was pretty sure of, was that I was not a fashion blogger. I love shopping, and I love clothes, but nooooo way. Dubai fashion bloggers fall into their own elite category; they get invited to private events and store openings, get all sorts of swag, design their own lines, and own bags that I would have to sell my kidneys on the black market just to afford the handle.

Case in point, dubbed the Dubai Olsen twins, the Pintsized Fashionistas are the typical Dubai Fashion blogger with their uber luxurious lifestyle.

But what would posts by me as a Dubai fashion blogger look like? One kind of popular post, done by fashion bloggers is What's in my bag.

I've seen so many versions of this post, and I'm bemused every single time. Surely that's not what the inside of a normal girl's bag really looks like.

Where are the tampons? Where are the random balls of Kleenex? WHERE'S THE PROOF THAT YOU'RE NOT FROM ANOTHER PLANET?

Now I don't want to horrify you with what the inside of my everyday work bag really looks like, so I transferred all my stuff to the new Kate Spade I bought recently, but I assure you that every single item is what I carried to work today.

Look at it, in all its pink glory.
The essentials.
Aaaand there it is. Toothbrush, Stolen friend's hairclip, Panadol Cold & Flu, Benefit Mascara tester tube, gum that I'm not supposed to eat because of my braces, new iPod nano (Thanks, Mom!), Mac concealer, stolen lip gloss and blush tint of my sister's

And a Twix, because yum.
So that's what's in my bag, I removed a whole armload of random bills, just FYI.

Hope you liked the post, if you did, comment below, or on Twitter or Facebook and tell me what's in your bag. Maybe we should do an informal survey to see if Dubai women are different from women in the UK.
