Inside A Modern Woman’s Handbag

Disclaimer: This is my fancy, Friday night cocktails in the city handbag. My practical every day Sportsgirl sack of floating tampons and breath mint graveyard is a whole other story.

I had a little giggle to myself when I was recently contacted by Durex to write a piece about their current range of lifestyle products. Their PR girl pointed out that while they would love for me to review the products, I was under no obligation to share anything too personal with my readers.

The truth is I have been carrying around a Durex condom in my purse for years, replacing it every time I had the sudden, uncontrollable urge to make latex based water balloons.

Let’s face it, getting a little too personal is my fortè. After all, people share intimate details about their relationships with me every day.

From my experience there are three things us women love more than Netflix and Nutella:

1. What’s in my bag segments.

2. Bloody great sex

3. And that piece of mind the next morning when we’re polishing of a bacon baguette at brunch and suddenly remember we did use protection. Pheww!

So I have combined all of this high level information to create the ultimate ‘what’s in my handbag’ post and hopefully protect you from contracting chlamydia #letsbehonet.

  • Lipstick for the perfect pout
  • Wallet for unlimitted funds after 9pm.
  • Phone for taking bad selfies and drunk dialing old boyfriends, colleagues, landlords e.g. Anyone with a penis that you can textually abuse.
  • Knickers incase you end up staying at a girlfriends place and watching movies all weekend.
  • Expensive sunglasses to accessorise your walk of shame.
  • And a condom in case you find yourself cosying up to a tall, dark, two legged type.

The latter comes in very handy when you go out for drinks and truffle fries with your girlfriends and end up having one too many Cosmopolitans…

Now let’s fast forward to the morning after, the night before…

You peel your face off the pillow, there’s one false eyelash on your forehead and the other is hanging for dear life on your forearm. That lipstick in your handbag is now smeared across your face. It is then you notice you are not in your own bed. Oh dear. Finding your knickers and your way out of the apartment can be painfully awkward. Figuring out which suburb you’re in, while trying to preserve your last 10% of battery can be terrifying. Then as you slump into the back of a taxi and rest your head on the window there’s nothing more nauseating than realising in the heat of the moment you didn’t use protection. STOOPPPPP! Pull over.

You can blame the man or the cocktails all you want, but the modern woman never leaves it up to chance. Which leads me to this…

A GIVEAWAY your vagina will thank me for!

I know we aren’t all going home with mysterious men and that’s why I want to introduce you to Durex’s Real Pleasure multi-speed vibrator.
