What's in my bag?

Ever since my beautiful Ted Baker bag entered my life, I've been wanting to do a 'What's in my bag?' post. I know they're extremely old-school nowadays, but they're one of my favourite blog posts to read (me so nosey) and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give my handbag a reshuffle. 

I'm currently on the hunt for a new wallet, after my last one sadly died a death, so in the mean time I'm just using my ADORABLE Kate Spade coin purse to keep my pennies in. I bought this a few months ago in the sale, after missing out on the red heart one (sob) and checking daily to see if it came back in. It's such a cute playing card shape and it's officially got me feeling the Kate Spade hype 100%. 

My makeup bag is a sweet little stripy/ice cream pastel affair from Primark, that fits just the right amount of day-to-day goodies in - my Duo lash glue, some kirby grips and my fave Invisibobble*, a lipstick, lipgloss, a couple of mini perfumes, a mirror and my current favourite lip balm by LipGlam* (this stuff does it all, seriously). I always get dry hands so I keep a hand cream in my bag at all times too - my current favourite is Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream*. I usually have some hand sanitiser on me too but it appears I've run out (cue mad dash to Boots tomorrow to stock up). 

As my hair is always a mess, I have to keep my mini Wet Brush* on me (best thing ever) to keep my tresses in check, along with some mints, my iPhone and some snazzy owl headphones. I also carry my blingtastic car keys, 2015 diary, a notebook and pen for jotting ideas down, and my favourite thing ever - my Kindle, which is packed full of my favourite reads and I keep nice and protected in my beloved Jungle Book Kindle case

So there you have it - everything that is currently living in my bag. Bar, you know, the occasional chocolate bar, receipt and vouchers I'll probably never use. I didn't think they were glam enough to make the cut. 


  1. What's in my bag posts have to be one of my all time favourite types of posts, it is probably because I am a nosey person. I love the little white notebook and Jungle Book kindle case.

  5. Your bag and its contents look lovely. I love the print on the bag, the pink Wet Brush (everything pink for that matter), and the pretty covers on the Jungle Book and the book for Notes - lovely calligraphy on that.

  6. I love these posts. Invisibobbles are amazing - I bought some last year and haven't used a normal hairband since. x
