I'm kind of like a bit of everything wrapped into one.
Sometimes a woman's looks or sensuality are too readily wrapped up in their power.

I found this national debt, doubled, wrapped in a big bow waiting for me as I stepped into the Oval Office.

A person wrapped up in himself makes a small package.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
