What’s In My Bag posts are regular features throughout the blogging world, and I love being able to cyber snoop through peoples bags. Yes, I know that makes me really nosey but I think it’s interesting to see how handbag essentials differ from one girl to another. So for any nosy people such as myself, here’s what I carry in my bag.
The bag I’m currently using is the Michael Kors Selma in orange, I think mine is the medium size but the collection has vastly increased in the year since I’ve had mine, so I’m not too sure! My Dad brought it for me for my 21st birthday last year which was an amazing present!
The main thing I obviously always carry with me is my purse and I brought this leather tan Osprey one just after Christmas. It has plenty of room for cards and notes, and equally for change, although sadly it’s never overflowing with either. I also carry around my diary but I’m not too sure why as I tend to write everything on my phone, but the glitter and bird print makes this Paperchase one make too cute to be left at home. I have a habbit of always carrying a mini umbrella with me, as even though you can leave the house in glorious sunshine it’s highly probable it will rain at some point. Got to love the UK weather…
When it comes to bits and bobs I stash them in a Cath Kidston zip up pouch, the likes of hair pins, bobbles, mini perfumes, tissues, odd sweets and paracetomol can all be found in there. I’m the person my friends always come to for any random supplies! There’s also always a pack of chewing, hand sanitiser (I’m a bit OCD with it) and some Carmex lip balm floating around. I think the cutest thing I carry in my handbag is my Estee Lauder compact mirror that my Auntie gave me, it is detailed with my birthstone and even has a translucent powder inside.
Other essentials are my keys which I never loose in the bottom of my bag as they’re attached to a selection of cat keyrings, resulting in them looking like they belong to a 12 year old. My Iphone comes everywhere with me, and so does my Ipod if I remember to charge it, which I evidently didn’t on this occasion. When it comes to makeup it changes on a daily basis, as I tend to throw in anything I think I might need. This usually consists of powder, concealer and a lipstick, I’m definitely not one of those girls who carries round their entire makeup bag, that sounds like far too much effort!
Does anyone else get satisfaction from seeing what others carry in their bags?
