What’s in my bag posts are some of my favourite lifestyle posts to read on blogs. There’s something nosy and addictive in knowing what other people take around with them on a daily basis.
I thought I would do one to fill in that slot of information of what I carry around, although I think it is pretty standard.
My wonderful bag was a gift from my parents for my 21st. It is a Yoshi leather handbag covered with book. I love it! It’s also pretty fun to take around town or to work as I can always spots someone reading the titles and going ‘Yes, yes, no, no, yes’ over which ones they’ve read. Plus it’s a gorgeously tactile handbag and fits everything I need.
My purse is from Yoshi, as is my handbag, but they are two different designs. My purse holds the mediocre stuff: money (typically) endless loyalty cards, stamps, receipts and ID. I have my keys which has a few fob cards on as well. My travel card which has been extremely helpful over my University lifetime and remains so and my Yoshi handbag/purse which I’ll explain in a bit.
My Creative Things
I have to carry a notebook around with me! Currently, that is my Bullet Journal (Paperchase Agenzio line, notebook £11). I get a lot of random story ideas whilst wandering around town or on the train so I like to have paper and pen close by. My pencil case. Yes, it has Tinkerbell on it. I have had this purse since I was 12/13 years old and it is still doing me proud. It is filled with different colour pens – I’m rebelling against writing in black/blue after 14 years of education! Now I write in PINK!
And then I also have my book of the moment and that is Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham. I am doing a lot of soul-searching/feminist considerations at the moment so this is filling my mind with wonder.
There are hardly any. I rarely take make-up with me, except for my lipstick of the day. This red-lipstick is from L’Oreal Paris and it’s Blake’s Pure Red. It’s definitely my favourite red right now! I always carry a Babylips with me, as I like to hydrate my lips during the day. This is the yellow Babylips ‘Intense Care’. Then I have my sunglasses, which I’ve hardly had any reason to use lately!
My Health Essentials
Now for the boring stuff. I have your standard kit of health things. From my nail file to tissues and my little purse of paracetamol and plasters. I use to carry a load of painkillers around with me at University – as if I didn’t need them someone else did! I was a regular mother like that. Don’t need to do that so much now I’m home. I also have my sanitary towel case for those ‘caught at surprise’ moments we all have.
I’ve not got to that ‘’dragging the charger with me’ moment yet, but I’m sure I will one day. I have my phone – although this is only my awesome Disney case – which is an iPhone 6 and then my chunky iPod which is an iPod Video. Plus my Apple earphones.
So there we go. That is my bag. Like I said everything is pretty standard but I change it up depending on the outing occasionally and I’ll soon be going on holiday to New York so I might do a Holiday special! We’ll see.
Let me know if you’ve done any posts like these, as you know I love to read them!
