Bagology is a unique and accurate process of understanding someone's personality, simply from the contents of their bag. Debbie Percy is the UK's leading Bagologist, and typically charges £9.99 for a Bagology reading. The standard Whats In My Bag blogpost is a must for any blogging enthusiast, so when an email landed in my Inbox from the lovely Hayden of Sudocrem sent me some information about a free Bagology opportunity, I had to get involved.

While many may be sceptical about this, I'm a bit of a sucker for things like these and almost immediately sent a photo of my bag and its' contents on their Facebook page. I considered reshooting this photo for the purposes of this post but then the reading would probably change, and I'm currently avoiding moving from my cosy spot on the sofa!

"Dear Michelle,
How gorgeous is your Mulberry Bag! You and your bag exude a refreshing, light feel as though you elegantly sail through life on a spirit of optimism. I can sense you are most definitely a lady who subscribes to the saying "glass half full"! You are also someone who will cherish peace of mind and perhaps the two go hand in hand, feeding one another. Make sure that in amongst life's busy hectic schedule that you find a way for some 'time out' to soak up some tranquillity. I think you probably enjoying hanging out with the boys and will make a good 'mate' to male buddies. Your inner strength of personality will make you feel like 'one of them' (in their minds eye). Yet, there are of course hints of femininity to you and a wisdom that perhaps is beyond your age! Pretty good stuff! So, don't hold back on letting your feelings show and believe in romance for it isn't dead (just take a look at the recent Royal Wedding to be reminded of that!). You can plan for a full life packed with things that today may not even be on your radar! I'm excited for you, and by you, and your bag. Take good care of each other!
All the best,"

While this isn't the be-all and end-all of learning about your personality traits, I thought it was pretty accurate overall! I'd totally recommend this little service to anyone, all you have to do is 'like' Sudocrem Tube's Facebook page, upload a clear photo of your bag and its' contents to their Wall and await your reading. The campaign and free readings are running until Tuesday 10th May 2011, so if you have a spare moment, hop on Facebook and give it a go, I'd love to hear how you all get on with your bag readings!


  1. I'm such a misery when it comes to things like this (I don't even read my horoscope, boo!) but this actually looks really interesting. I love how they're giving these out for free, when it clearly takes quite a bit of time and effort :)

    I might have to clean up my bag a little and give it ago :D Thank you for sharing, Michelle!

  2. This sounds so interesting. Might have to give it a go x

  3. Oh, that sounds like fun, I wonder what she'll make of me? I often have random thinsg like spanners and allen keys in my bag,something to do with being a boater!

  4. haha as soon as i read this post rushed upstairs and took a picture of my bag contents. its weird how people can analyse you by your bag contents!

  5. Oh I haven't read my horoscope in absolutely ages, surprisingly! I'm a real sucker for these, and personality quizzes, tarot readings etc., and this really impressed me (: Definitely snap a photo and get your bag 'read' Alex! xxx

    I'd absolutely recommend it Vicky, it was so interesting to see my reading as it was all quite accurate! x

  9. This is so cool! I just did a "what's in my bag" post on my blog so I might send the pictures and see what my bag and its content says about me! Haha! Such a gorgeous bag too. I really want the same white and rose gold version for summer. My black one feels so wintery!

  10. I read this before, and rushed to take a photo of my bag so I can send it to them, it's such a fun little idea. Don't think I would pay for it though! You're Alexa makes me drool so much. x
