I decided to do an up to date ‘whats in my handbag’ post for Autumn, as you girls know the contents of our handbags are always changing! – I may do a Christmas version too as no doubt the contents of my bag will be completely festive by then so keep an eye out for that one.
First of all my handbag is from an online store called www.bagable.co.uk, they stock brands such as Fiorelli, Nica and Fossil. I was offered a handbag from the lovely guys working there and decided to chose this one; the Nica shoulder bag in mint green. I love shoulder bags for everyday as they are just so easy to wear and this mint green is the perfect pastel bag for next season.
I recently upgraded my Iphone to the 5, it’s not the newest release but I still love it. I’ve only just got around to updating my software as i’m so useless with things like that. Ever since my boyfriend bought me a Kindle for my birthday I never leave the house without it, my commute to work is about an hour an twenty minutes each way so I have plenty of time to get stuck into a good book series. (I’ve just finished reading the Hunger Games and feel so lost!! – if anyone has any good series recommendations then please comment below!)
My beautiful Michael Kors berry colour purse was a birthday present from my best girlfriends, they got it so right as I love it so much. I carry my ‘hydrating’ Babylips by Maybelline everywhere as my lips are really drying out in the cold weather and it’s the perfect balm for saving my lips from cracking. I also carry my Estee Lauder lipstick in shade ‘red tango’ in case I have an event or am meeting someone and need to glam up a little.
I have a mini Penhaligons Iris Prima perfume that I carry around with me, the size is great and lightweight so it’s fits in my bag without even noticing and is great for having a quick spritz on the way out after work. I also take my Laura Mercier body cream in case i’m wearing a short sleeved top and need a quick moisturise en route to my next destination… and it smells incredible!
I usually take my Liz Earle mini eye bright with me too along with some cotton pads as it’s great to dab on under my eyes if it’s been a long day and i’m feeling a bit sleepy, it’s so refreshing and really does wake up my eyes. I always keep my trusty Bumble and bumble surf spray to hand in case my hand needs a quick going over, I usually just turn my head upside down, spray some surf and give it a shake then I’m good to go again just with more volume this time!
Lastly I carry my loreal miracle repair 7 nail polish with me as my nails were recently damaged by a colour polish that has left them stained and they also chip quite easier. This polish comes out a milky white colour so its great to wear on its own and when i’m not wearing coloured polish I try to apply it once a day to help restore my nails to their previous condition – I have to say that I’ve noticed a real difference since using the polish!
What do you carry in your bag that you couldn’t be without?
