What's in my bag?

Hopping on the bandwagon and showing you what I carry around day to day in my bag.

Wow, that picture hurts my eyes a bit! So many patterns. It all looks okay inside the muted brown lining of my bag, but all splayed out on my garish hideous bedding? No! 

I don't always carry a tin of soup and breakfast biscuits in my bag. It's only because I've packed my bag ready for work tomorrow that I have my breakfast and lunch in there. Although there was one time I wandered around Cardiff, wondering why my bag was hurting my shoulder. On getting back to the car and rummaging around for my handsome boy's car keys I discovered a tin of soup from the day before rolling about in there. Maybe I should utilise my lunchbox more?

Standard notebook and Kindle boredom busters.

I like to be prepared for all weathers - umbrella and sunglasses see to that! (I really like leopard print, can you tell?)

Purse and bag in a bag - the boring basics.

And this is everything that lives in the Blue Spotty bag. Heel blasters, blister plasters, anti-bac hand gel, toothpaste, dissolvable pain killers, chewing gum, cuticle cream, lip balm, mirror, glass nail file, tweezers, blotting papers, safety pins, perfume, toothbrush. All of the "just in case" or important products that are too small to let float about in the abyss. My hand cream usually lives in or near there too, but I completely forgot about including that.

Finally - pressed powder. I tend to keep it in there as a desperation staple. I don't like wearing foundation, I'd rather rely on my blotting papers to reduce shine. If I'm having one of those days where it feels like I'm throwing blotting papers at a frying pan I resort to this. It's not the best, and in no way does it last for 16 hours without congealing on my skin, but for an hour or so I get gloriously matte skin. What more can a girl ask for?

So, now you all know what I keep in my bag. If you have any other handbag staples I'd love to hear them (and steal them for my handbag).

  1. Haha I love all the leopard print going on here, girl after my own heart! I love these posts and videos, I really need to do an updated one. The only other handbag staple I can think of is hand sanitizer - but I'm just a bit ol' germaphobe! xx

  2. I'm envious of your organization! I keep telling my self I will eventually compartmentalize all the crap in my bag but I'm so busy these days! And is that Davidoff Cool Water I spy?? Love it! Your blog is too cute. *Follows* Check out my blog if you like!

  3. Haha, SO many patterns in that first pic!
    I really like your purse and sunnies - shame there's a serious lack of sun here atm!

  4. Love posts like this- I'm so nosy! Really love that umbrella! And always wish I had plasters on me as i'm always getting blisters!
