The Stuff in my Bag

I was  tagged in a meme by ThirdWorldProfashional. The meme requires me to share the content of my bag with you guys.Here goes...

The Bag:Nicole Lee(on sale for $80)
So, i love this bag.I have had it for 2 years and it has served me well. Back in grad school, it was perfect for carrying my laptop and school books. Now, it is my everyday bag and my life fits right into it.It is a great bag for travelling and it has accompanied me to four countries. The bag is now old and grimy but i am still holding on to it, thank you very much!

The Content
Sony Camera: My mini camera is always with me. Do you know who i could run into?I have randomly run into Mariah Carey, Will Smith & Jada, Busta Rymes and Chris North.I need to be able to document such life defining moments.
Apple iPod & headphones: I live in a city and I use the train.I need music to block out the madness that goes on in the train.
Coach Wallet: Credit card, I.D, store cards, get my drift.
Iman Powder: I rarely use this during the day .Once my make up is done at home, i hardly ever touch up .I just carry it in my bag just in case.
Lip gloss: I always have my Bath & Body works passion fruit guava lip gloss with me.
Chewing gum: This is a must, I always have to have a pack with me.
Bath & Body Works Body Lotion: I know most people keep small containers in their bags, but since I am a germaphobe, who has to was her hands every 10 minutes , i  really need a bigger sized container.
Tampons: You just never know when Aunty Flo will decide to show up.HISS!
Hand Sanitizer: Cant live without it.Again, i use public transportation and i see all sorts. For instance, i have seen a guy tear off a button from his coat, stick it into his nostrils, then put it in his mouth and then back into his nose and then finally, rub his fingers all over the metal hand rail. 'nuff said!
Ok magazine: I didnt subscribe to this magazine but they keep sending it to me. It is light to carry around and a great read for the daily rides.
Cell phone: The other air i breathe.
Other random stuff: Hair brush, umbrella,keys,pen & bobby pin.

As part of the rules, i have to tag other bloggers, and i hereby do tag the following bloggers and everyone else reading this.
