Personal Items

Personal items sounds so personal, doesn't it? I guess for some of us things like jewellery, belts, shoes and other similar things are considered accessories, but personal items can also include things like a shaving brush, hair combs, and even a cane.

All of these items are things that can be individual to each person; everyone has their own taste in shoes and jewellery, and in items used for personal care. Some like electric toothbrushes, while others prefer a normal everyday toothbrush. One person might like bar soap, while another will only use bodywash. Even the choices we make for shampoo or conditioner are personal - these our chosen based on our own personal tastes, or some might be chosen over others because of the need for specialty items or allergies.

So ... you'll find lots of different items here, and while they're all personal items, I'll try to keep them grouped in "like" items (for example jewellery on pages with other jewellery, shoes with shoes, etc.)
