What’s in the bag

2012-02-03 13:34

The 26-year-old actress who was born in Kagiso near Krugersdorp, West Rand, may have the luxuries of a spoiled person – a designer bag, shades and expensive perfume?– but she admits she “worked hard and saved to get them”.

First was the gorgeous Chloé designer black and cream handbag:
“This was a birthday gift from my aunt who travels a lot abroad. She knows how much I love bags and this one has since been my favourite.”

Then she whips out her Burberry wallet with red trimmings:

“I bought this baby last year after saving up for a while. It cost me an arm and a leg.”

Gucci black shades:

“I love sunglasses, I have this pair and another pair in my car. I don’t know?.?.?.?but they complete the look sometimes,” she says giggling.

BlackBerry Bold 9900:
“I love my phone. I always have it with me, unless I am on set of course.”
She pauses to explain the rest of the contents before she takes them out saying: “I am quite a hygiene freak so you will have to forgive me.”

She takes out Woolworths hand sanitiser and waterless lemon hand foam:
“I am paranoid about germs everywhere I go. I touch things and, who knows, I may need to eat along the way and can’t wash my hands.”

Refresher towels:
“I get these from restaurants. Every time they bring them to the table I always ask for more and I keep them in my bag just in case I may need them.”

Lil-lets ladies feminine wipes:
“No woman should live without these.”

Oh So Heavenly hand cream:
“It’s almost finished but I cannot go without it. Since I am such a hygienic person, I find myself washing my hands all the time. So the cream is needed to avoid dry hands.”

Johnson & Johnson tissue oil:
“I wear short clothes now that it’s summer and sometimes my legs get dry, so I apply this when needed.”

Peppermint breath freshner spray and Stimorol switch gum:

“You never know when these may come in handy. Nothing scares me like bad breath.”

Labello lip gloss:

“I have been a fan of this product for years, even when I was a broke student.”

Mac lip gloss and Studio Fix powder:
“You can tell that these are products I barely use unless I’m going out and have to do some quick touch-ups after work to meet with friends for dinner. I am not a huge make-up fan really, but I use it here and there.”

Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume:

“I love Marc Jacobs and his perfumes work for me.”

ID book:
“I don’t know why, but I have developed this habit of carrying my ID in my bag.”

House and car keys:

“Where can I go without a car or where am I to sleep without my house keys?”

A pen:

“That’s for autographs.”

A moleskin diary:
“This is how I keep up-to-date. I write down my ideas and notes. I like the fact that it’s not dated so it doesn’t confine me to how much I can write and when.”
