It all began with Ee-Lyn helping me out the other day.

I was marveling at her girlie pouch preparedness and had decided that I would make it a point to assemble one myself. I passed by a travel shop, spent $9 on a pouch and started narrowing down what I’d need to take with me.

Here is what I now carry with me everywhere:

  • Oil blotters  –
  • Female monthly essentials
  • Pocket mirror (for spinach in teeth moments)
  • 1GB USB thumb drive
  • Double headphone jack
  • Combination lock for gym use
  • Inhaler
  • Multi-tool (for any form of emergency)
  • Nokia Bluetooth headset
  • Eclat D’arpege mini perfume
  • Becca cheek tint
  • Lip Ice & Burt’s Bees balms
  • Lavendar & Orange badger balm (in case of blisters or chafing)
  • Body Shop eyeshadow
  • Benefit mini eyeliner
  • Tweezer
  • Painkillers & anti-inflammatories

I’m quite excited about being prepared for any situation now. And it’s all thanks to Ee-Lyn too :)

The funny thing is I’ve told a few friends about this and apparently they ALL already have girlie pouches. So they decided to share their contents too! It’s becoming a meme – Haha! Here are Mel’s and Faz’s.

Some of my other friends have also posted their’s on Twitter – We’re now at 5 or 6 and counting! Even the dudes are tempted to show us the contents of their manbags. Haha!

Very amused. Although I am getting a lot of grief for carrying a multi-tool around….

Gracie’s comment cracked me up:

why in the world do you need a multi-tool in your pouch??? are your eyebrows THAT stubborn?


So go on then, what’s in your’s? (Post it and share your link with me, please!)

Note: Gadgets packed separately.

  8. lynniece says:

    i haven’t got one (girl pouch) and honestly i think i’m too lazy to assemble it! I just take note of what i might need for the next day and lop it into my handbag the night before. And when i need it, i do the digging thing, ploughing through the contents to find the elusive lip balm, or hair pin.

  9. Irene says:

  13. Ern says:

    hey! are you wearing eyeliner now?!
    I don’t have a pouch either! Only girly things i have in my bag are lip balm, hand cream and bodyshop sample perfume. Non-girly things that i transfer with bag changes are keys, ipod, phone and wallet. Don’t need to encourage the yellow fever. hehehe.
