What's in my bag?

Wednesday, 4 March 2015




I was a bit stuck on what I should write for today's post so when I was packing my bag to go out over the weekend, I decided to take some photos of what I was putting in it. The bag I used on that day is from Topshop and I absolutely love it! I bought it last year so I'm not sure if you can buy it now but there are similar bags sold elsewhere. It is in a lovely mint green colour with gold panels down the front. Mint green is one of my favourite colours and I feel like it brightens up my outfit as I'm normally wearing black/grey. The bag holds quite a lot and has a phone pocket within.

So what do I put in it? Well, I'm not the person who brings everything but the kitchen sink in their bag as it gets too heavy for me. I like to only pack the essentials - you may question whether makeup is an essential? No it's not but on that day I decided to put my favourite lipstick and a powder in to touch up my makeup during the day. I featured this Urban Decay lipstick in my February favourites, it is the perfect everyday colour for me! For the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, I have oily skin so it's nice to have a powder to reduce shininess throughout the day! 

My beloved Tangle Teezer comes everywhere with me; I have a compact one so it fits in my bag nicely. I find that my hair gets really knotty especially when it's windy outside so I can just whip this out and detangle my messy hair. Also, I take my purse with me, I've actually had this one for a while. I bought it in Bistow Village in the Radley shop, I remember that I got it for £25 which is a good discount. It just holds my money and cards etc.

I like to bring a pen with me in case I need it. This one is from Paperchase and I think I bought it in a set of three. In addition to that, I keep my glasses in my bag. I've only recently started wearing these when I'm concentrating or reading as I was previously getting headaches when doing those things. Since having them, my headaches have stopped and I'm getting on well with them. Finally, my phone - mine is a iPhone 4 and I mostly use it for music on the go but obviously calls and texts as well. So that is everything that I keep in my bag! 

What is your staple item that you carry around with you?

  1. Stay Matte is a staple for my handbag, great for touch ups and lasts well on oily skin.
