ISO Bag or Pouch for Discreet Carriage/Storage of Diabetic Paraphernalia

I am a man with diabetes. I need to have easy access to all of my gear (pens, needles, monitor, strips, pills, etc.). I have a desk job (business attire required), but my weekends and evenings are spent all over the place. I can occasionally use my wife's purse as a holder- but that still means a bunch of loose stuff floating around in the jumble of her purse. What can I use to contain and keep all my stuff with me and still fit in around the office and town?

SMALL high quality toiletry kit

I'm looking for a small, lightweight kit that can hold a toothbrush, shaver, shaving cream, toothpaste and not much else. I'm having trouble finding this in stores or online. I've googled 'pencil pouches' which is more of the form factor I'm going for, and I'm not wanting to use zip locks. Must be gender neutral/male focused (if that makes sense). Thoughts?

How do you make a splendid cup of tea?

As an Englishman, I am familiar with how some of my fellow Anglo-Saxon brethren make a cup of tea. Some make a pot of tea and decant when appropriate, and the rest, for speed, laziness or an unappreciation of our noble drink, use a teabag in a mug. But, apart from a few of our distant cousins, I remain ignorant as to how Americans, Canadians and others across the waters typically make tea (as in the hot drink made from the conjunction of tea leaves and hot water). If applicable, how do you? Are there unique variations in procedure pertaining to your locale? [more inside]

Help me aquire the perfect purse.

I am extremely picky about my purses. When I shop for bag first I go by appearance, quality, then strap drop. The strap drop excludes a good 95% of bags I like, but online it is the hardest thing to search by. Does there exist a site something like Zappos or Nordstrom that will let me search by strap drop? That would solve most of my problems. I have tried to google for a site like that but my Fu is failing me. [more inside]

this is why i can't have nice things

I have a nice leather handbag and I accidentally squished one of the handles under a chair leg. This is my first leather bag and I've only had it since March and I am feeling sad that I have ruined it, even though I doubt anyone but me can see what happened to the strap. It made me realize that I have no idea how to take care of leather. I'd like some tips (and maybe some perspective on whether I should be this bummed about it). [more inside]

I'm looking for a daypack that'll carry an SLR camera, an extra lens, a book, and a water bottle. I'd like it to be compact enough that it can't carry much else. I'd like it to offer some mild degree of protection to the camera and the lens. I don't mind if it's a backpack, shoulder bag, or sling. Style-wise, I'd rather it not look like a camera bag.

Tiny Black Biking Backpack

I would like a black backpack, smaller than your average backpack, that's just large enough to fit my iPad, u-lock, and a few essentials while riding my bike. Something like this would work, except I would really prefer something with a squared off rolltop or flap top to the traditional rounded zipper backpack opening. To be even more picky, I would prefer it to be water-resistant, and ideally from a small messenger bag company that manufactures in the USA. If I could just buy something like this and shoot it with a shrink ray, I'd be happy. [more inside]
