My Handbag hasn’t got a Leak yet…

Really now, there is something for everyone nowadays, and that includes the lovers of handbags… including me!!
I just got to reading earlier this morning and low and behold what article popped into my face.. Yes, a handbag that serves/ holds your favorite beverage…
Not like you think though… it has a built-in thingy that holds your beverage of choice… and to be honest, okay, if you don’t want others to know that you are taking a nip of a certain beverage, but otherwise I am not tooooo convinced of its functionality, and a spigot on the side of the bag is not my idea of a good looking hand bag nor of cleanliness either. Or am I just out of it when it comes to fashion statements???

Plus, a small bottle of water or the sorts is just as good and just imagine, you fill your handbag up with a beverage and the container springs a leak… Then what!!! Scream or cry or maybe even both, if you’ve got some precious things in your handbag…..

My eyes are watering already with that thought… or even worse my Mascara is running down my face at this thought…. Everything is ruined, but then to prevent this I need the super duper waterproof bag in a bag to prevent the worst case scenario….

But, you never know… Invited to a party or out with friends … You got it!! Beverages are on hand and if a group of you have the same sort of handbags then…. Hey, let’s have a party!!! Drinks galore!!! I mean really, I always have a couple of cups in my hand bag for such occasions; should I run into a friend with that sort of handbag. I bet you have cups in your handbag, too???

Though I must be honest here and say that none of my friends have such handbags… Why they don’t I cannot say… Sorry
A somewhat concerning thought for me is while I am out and about and may have a bit of red wine left over from last evening in my bag( please don’t tell anyone my secret here) and I accidently catch the spigot on my clothing …. Then a red wine stain and how do I explain that at work and hope that everyone believes me???? Any answers???
Plus, how do I clean this beverage container thingy handbag?? I feel really perplexed with such thoughts.. Or who cares …

Another thought is how much does such a handbag cost and where can I buy one, should I ever what one??? And does it have a built in cooling system for those hot days in the summer or does it keep my beverages warm in the winter and what does it weigh…. These questions need to be answered, don’t they and I bet you thought the same as I was thinking, but just afraid to ask those questions… Don’t be, because no question is too dumb, if you don’t know the answer…

Though, should any of you out there own such a handbag, please do let us all know and maybe even send us a picture of you using it… Thanks, we are all curious, too!

Enjoy you handbag no matter what style it is….

Dozens of Dinner Parties

Dinner parties seem to be seeing a comeback….or it is said.
Did they ever die or is there a need to try to be hip and say” hey we are throwing a dinner party”… before you just had people around for a meal or friends got together for a meal… but a dinner party… OH… those were the days and I can remember them as a kid!!

They were “in” one time and everyone got excited about being invited for a meal and drinks…..cocktails, somewhat fashionable then and mingling amongst friends and strangers and then the big moment when “dinner was announced”!!!

It wasn’t just the dinner that was important it was the whole concept itself… My mom always – planned what to wear, went and got her hair done, saw to it that my dad had the right suit on with the right tie…. Those were dinner parties and no one would ever think of showing up casual like we see today when we go to people’s houses for a meal. Those were events!!!

I too when invited would have to get dressed-up too. It would be unimaginable for children not to be properly attired either, because the family reputation was on show and what women (mother) would want her children to be seen as not properly dressed for the occasion. Ok, I was dressed up in a dress but somehow it really didn’t seem to fit in because if the weather was good all the kids were sent outside and of course told in a stern voice “Don’t get dirty”!!

Those words of wisdom I never have understood, because for us kids going outside back then meant doing something where you would get dirty and you could guarantee once back inside that I/ we all would get in trouble for dirtying our good clothes…. I guess my mom’s logic about not getting dirty when I was a kid will remain a mystery to me forever. Then after getting dirty the other great sentence was: Didn’t I tell you not to get dirty!! … Even when I tried to convince my mother that you can’t play outside and not get dirty, was useless because she didn’t want to hear that. Nor did any of the other mother’s either…..

Then we kids were shunted into another room and served what everyone always thought us kids loved to eat… Hotdogs and french-fries and drink a sickly sweet drink that gave you an orange or red mustache!! (I’m sure many of you know this drink) Why we had to eat that all the time is beyond me. I guess back then everyone thought that this was dinner party food for kids. I always wanted what the adults we eating… REAL FOOD!!!

Those were great times!!

But it is true no one really does those things anymore. It was so fun back then and my mom even enjoying throwing those dinner parties too and cooking all the food herself and getting everything ready for that big evening… It was simply great!!

Will the “Dinner Party” make a comeback or is it lost to the TV and computer world???
