Essentials for Delilah’s life are identified as followed. Her clutch, EOS, gum, collection of lotions, Moroccan Oil for her hair, a bottle of Advil, and her inhaler. Each item has a story. Her clutch was bought for her by her boyfriend on their first vacation, cause she was going over-seas and needed something small and compact. That’s also where her EOS and various lotions came from, when her and her boyfriend had Christmas together, those were the stocking stuffers. The Moroccan Oil came from her best friend who was clearing her room to move to Alaska (she also needs it for her infamously unruly hair). The inhaler she’s needed since she was about 14, when she finally had access to a doctor and was diagnosed with Asthma. She’s basically grown out if it, but that inhaler saved her life a couple of times, so she still keeps it around. The Advil, well when she was going in to get her GED, she had some Advil on her and they confiscated it and almost kicked her off the school premise. She kept bringing it anyways, just hiding it better, and so she got in the habit of always having it on her. It reminds her, in her adult years of her little acts of rebellion as a teenager, and she looks back with fondness. Now for the bag its self. The wife of the man who owned the ranch she worked at, nicknamed Stormy, did a ton of missions work in Africa. Stormy established a library in an underdeveloped town, and had partnered with a local out reach. This out reach started a program that taught the families to make handbags, and various other trinkets, and sell them as a small income, instead of living in and accepting their poverty. Well Stormy got permission to bring back some bags, accessories, and trinkets and sell them in America. The funding’s would be funneled back to the program and families. And that’s Delilah
