How organised is your bag?

I love bags, my favourite designer is Jasper Conran. Whenever I can, I buy one of his bags. Oh my gosh, it feels so good. I am transported to heaven. However, it is not just Jasper. My kids know me so well that if we go to the shopping centre and there is a bag shop or bags on display anywhere, they pull me away.

I just love bags. I don’t buy a bag just because it’s pretty, it also has to be the right texture and it has to feel right for me, it is an extension of my outfit, it is an extension of me.

I do have a problem though organising my small bags. I get frustrated with their messy state. Finding my keys and lip gloss can be a nightmare.

I came up with an idea. I took an old fabric placemat and turned it into a purse organiser by folding it, pinning the sides, placing my items in it to measure the pocket lines and then sewing along the lines.

Now my bags are mess-free, and I can find my keys and lip gloss with my eyes closed.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Ines Newell. I am a qualified life coach currently completing my postgraduate certificate in business and executive coaching with Leeds Beckett University. Before the covid-19 pandemic, I was a part-time self-employed beauty therapist (since 2007.) I specialised in waxing treatment. I enjoyed meeting people and listening to their lives and struggles. It is this that inspired me to get into coaching and mentoring. When I shared my struggles and pains with my customers and how I had overcome they told me that I was an inspiration to them and they had made changes in their lives that previously they had not thought possible. The decision to permanently close my beauty business was hard, but I wanted to do something new. Something where I could learn from other people’s experiences, something where others could learn from mine, and together we could expand our understanding, knowledge and wisdom of the world and each other. I look forward to learning and growing together. Ines Newell
