What's in my bag?

Don't we all love these kinds of posts?  I know I do!  Tell me what's in your bag, put the link in the comments i'd love to see!!

My bag is from All Saints, and i'm absolutely in love with it.  It's made up of vintage leather biker jackets which I think is kinda cool and it has random straps hanging off it and buckles & things, and I love the front with all the different pockets.  Of course, I bought it at full price, two weeks later it was in the sale for half of that - always the way huh! 

It turns out, I have a lot of crap in my bag, but in my mind it's all essentials - and I do use all of it, so I guess that's okay, although the sunglasses raise an eyebrow (why on earth do I need those in England?!)

So, from left to right - in a roundabout way.

  • Current book i'm reading - The Hunger Games triology, last in the series 'Mockingjay'.  I loovee this series, and I don't think i've ever read a book series so quickly! (Okay, maybe Harry Potter might take the biscuit there).  Soon there won't be a book though, and i'll be getting the amazon kindle for my birthday which is coming up in a couple of weeks eee :)  (the 'eeee' is my excited noise just fyi). 
  • Iphone and Maurice Junior, sorry Ipod Classic.  Don't we all name our Ipods?  No?  Just me then. 
  • Purse by Jasper Conran.  Of course Maurice Junior is covering up but it opens my a little clasp and it totally reminds me of something a modern day Audrey Hepburn may have :)  This may or may not be the only reason I got it in the first place!
  • Sunglasses.  Perscriptive ones because i'm practically blind.  Not entirely  sure why they're in there.  Like I said, I live in England.  What sun? 
  • Umbrella.  Definitely know why that's there.  Like I said, England. 
  • Evian Water Facial Spray (not entirely sure of the real name, forgot to look before)  This is great if you have dry skin like I do and your face gets patchy throughout the day.  Kind of like MAC's Fix plus only cheaper. 
  • Deodrant and moisturising hand sanitizer.  Both essential for a clean freak like me :)   These go in the little zip pocket inside the bag.
  • Keys on a wimbledon neck thingy, it helps me find them faster.  The grey thing is my little clocker for work. And a National Rail ticket holder, also essential for getting to work. 
  • Tablets.  A must for a headache suffer like myself.  I usually have '4head' in there too but that seems to have disappeared :/ 
  • Hairbrush.  One of those ones that folds up and has a little mirror too. 
  • MAC perfume in 'Turquatic'.  A rollerball perfect for my handbag, and it's a nice refreshing scent for touching up throughout the day.
  • Kiehls handcream.  Handcream is always a must, probably wouldn't get this one again though.  £14 and not that amazing!
  • Tic tacs.  Minty breath is a must.  And I don't like chewing gum.  Everytime I see someone chewing reminds me of a cow eating grass lol.
  • Blistex and Burts Bees mango flavour lip balm.  Self explanatory.  
And that's it.  I say that's it, it's a pretty long list, but like I say, all essentials I think!! This bag is really good in that I don't really need to carry a little makeup bag with me to put the little things in, because it all fits in the little pockets in the front!  I don't ever carry any actual makeup around with me, unless i'm going out straight after work or something, and I don't apply touch ups during the day because I can never be bothered lol.

So tell me, what's in your bag?


  1. cow eating grass ?? rofl
