What's in my bag?
Hello my lovelies, and thank you for stopping by! So, today's post is aimed at getting more acquainted with me, and you can't get more intimately informed of someone than having a good old nosy in their bag, am I right? Because, as we all know, the common handbag is a girl's WORLD - if we could carry the kitchen sink in them, I'm sure we would - a woman's handbag is the window of her personality. So, I'm delighted to be sharing mine with you! And hopefully you'll get a better insight of what comes adventuring with me in my bag on a daily basis.
Being a satchel, my bag admittedly can't carry that much - however, I see this as a blessing or else I'd honestly be stuffing all my room's contents into it!
The first thing that catches most people's eyes is my adorably charming little Deery Lou purse which I happily adopted about 6 years ago whilst in New York (and yes, it is from the Sanrio Hello Kitty Store!). It's been used and abused and has admittedly seen better days but I can't bring myself to part with it, it's just so cute and kawaii I could scream!
After seeing them featured on numerous blogs, I decided to do some investigation into the MyOptique glasses which had been taking the bloggoshpere by storm. I instantly fell in love with a cats eye pair from London Retro and simply had to buy them to channel my inner 50's fashionista!
I'm also currently engrossed in The Hobbit at the moment and am always carrying a good book with me - for you never know when you might need a little bit of escapism from this world!
Another item which I would be totally lost without is my Filofax (which I've glamorously/tackily jazzed up with some insane gems). I write everything in my Filofax, from birthdays to appointments, lists to general notes, my life would have gone awry without it! It's so essential for organisation and would really recommend anyone to have one!
Where makeup is concerned, I like to carry my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette with, if ever a topup in eyeshadow is required - it simultaneously doubles as my mirror! I was originally planning on investing in the Naked 3 palette, however I find that the tones are too rosy for me, and that could potentially lead to a clash with my pink hair SHOCK HORROR. I also religiously carry my saviour salve Nuxe lip balm with me. Without it, I genuinely do believe that my lips would have cemented together, as they would have been that chapped during the harsh wither months without it! Accompanied with the palette, I also like to have by handy mini Benefit mascara, to keep my peepers looking lush at all times!
Another thing which always finds itself rolling around at the bottom of my bag is my Body shop strawberry body butter. I prefer using this rather than consistently hauling a perfume around as it's aroma doesn't overwhelm the nostrils when applied and is lovely to apply to the hands when it's a bit nippy outside.
In keeping with the strawberry theme, I also always have my Denman strawberry scented hairbrush in my possession. As a gal with quite lengthy hair, it does tend to tangle and tat, especially when I'm out battling the elements here in Newcastle!
I don't know about you, but I am a victim of myself - I am ALWAYS misplacing my keys and in the most unusual of places! So, in order to remedy this inconvenience, I affixed a little moomin friend who is a suitable enough size as to not get lost!
So tell me, what's in your bag?
