.#Handbag Monday's guest is author Ashley Ladd. Wanna take a peek in her bag? #MFRWorg #PlottingPrincesses

Imagine how thrilled I was when Ashley Ladd answered my plea for a blogging spot and I was only too happy to feature her on

*  #Handbag Monday  *

Let's check her out: Ashley Ladd is a disabled Air Force vet, a proud mama, a cat lover, Trekkie, and carries a purse that’s much too heavy. She writes erotic romance in its many forms. She’s an Ohio girl transplanted into a Florida world.

Ashley, what did you bring us? 

This handbag holds a big part of my world, and thus, is my constant companion. The only time I don’t keep it with me is if I go out for a walk or a swim. Then I put my keys and my wallet in a fanny pack and my phone in my pocket.

I found this purse at Bealls for quite a steal and it’s been a really good satchel. Although I love pretty handbags, I can’t afford to spend much money on them. I have four children still at home and feel funny spending money on myself. Most of my earnings gets spent on them. In fact, I have to complete back to school shopping and spring for a couple haircuts this week.

I get teased a lot about my purses in general and this one is no exception. My handbags tend to get very heavy. That’s even after I stopped carrying my medicine and makeup in my purse. And that’s also with my youngest daughter removing all the coins a couple times a month.

So what’s in my handbag? My wallet, a separate credit card holder, phone, keys, brush, hearing aid batteries and holder, ear buds, and too many bills and medical appointment notices from the VA to mention.

Blurb for Business or Pleasure: Tommy Boudreaux is extremely attracted to Guy Rogers even though he’s a passionate vegetarian and animal rights activist and Tommy’s family owns the most popular barbecue joint in town.

What a great - all purpose - bag. It looks so comfortable. I love the color too!

Hi, Susan! I agree a great color and general all purpose covers a good description.

D'Ann said...

Great bag!
Would you believe I don't carry one at all? I have one that sits on the floorboard of my car where my DL and CCs are, but I never take it in anywhere! LOL

Hi, D'Ann and whoa! No bag? I have to have one. One time at National, a girl sat in front of me with the niftiest backpack. I passed a note, just like one would in school. And yes, bought one too. lol

Cara Marsi said...

I love that handbag. I'm a bag afcionado myself. My bags tend to be too heavy for me but I still carry them. I love the premise of your new book, Ashley. Good luck with it.

Hi, Cara! You have a point about bags can be too heavy. A heavy bag can weigh on your shoulder and back. That's why it is important to carry the right one for you. Hugs!

Melissa Keir said...

I am a big purse girl. I stuff everything in it, just in case. I loved the color too. :)

Elaine Hopper said...

Thank you Vicki for hosting me and my orange bag today. I'm loving all the visitors and comments. Ashley

Elaine Hopper said...

Susan - The bag is very comfortable and it'll be the perfect color for autumn. I got a really good deal on it too. Ashley

Elaine Hopper said...

D'Ann - Around here (I live in a big metropolis), we're told not to leave our purses in our car. If I do, I cover it with a towel or something. I usually use a fanny pack and leave my purse at home if I'm planning to exercise or do something where I don't want to carry my purse.


Elaine Hopper said...

Cara - This bag is pretty heavy and sometimes hurts my shoulder. But then that happens with all my purses.

Thank you for your kind words about my book.


Elaine Hopper said...

Melissa - Thanks. My daughter says I put too much stuff in my purse even though I've tried to scale back. And I like the color too.

That looks like my "everyday" bag...
