Always carry a book

By | April 4th 2012

KTN reporter WILKISTA NYABWA loves to read.


What bag are you carrying today?

I have a multicoloured leather handbag.

How many bags do you have?

I have about two bags that I interchange for work and another 4 casual bags that I use during the weekends.

What’s you handbag style?

I like bags with compartments because that makes it easier to find stuff inside the bag. I like bags with colour and for work I like big bags because I carry a lot of stuff. Sometimes I have to carry extra shoes and clothes so a big bag is quite handy.

Where do you buy your bags from?

If I see a bag I like, I buy it. I’ve also bought some bags from a website recently discovered called Rubybags.com. I bought this bag from a shop I randomly walked into. I liked the colours and it goes with a lot of stuff.

Do you change bags often?

I don’t change bags during the week because I inevitably forget something I’ll need in the other bag but weekends I usually change bags because I have more time. I also have a bronze pouch that has my essentials that I move from one bag to another.

What would you never leave the house without?

Definitely my phone.

What’s in your bag?

Abyssinia Chronicles by Moses Isegawa — I always have a book in my bag, this is my book club read, Nokia phone, charger — I always carry a charger,

I Love Vanilla perfume body spray

Bath & Bodyworks Peach Citrus lotion , Fay wet wipes,

House keys, Tapes, Notebook, Bronze pouch that has: coin purse, more tapes, business cards, headphones, flash disk, pen, bank cards, money, sewing kit and Mvua sunscreen.

Why don’t you have any make-up in your bag?

I don’t wear make-up unless I’m doing a live broadcast.
