What's in my bag!

I wanted to do a different type of blog post tonight, so a big thank you to a great follower of mine on Twitter (theroxyloves) who suggested it!

So, here's what's in my bag...

This is my gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs Turnlock Faridah bag *caress, stroke, sigh* :) It's a beautiful patent taupe & I love it! The lining is also fabulous...

I love the star-print lining as it's a lovely contrast to the patent taupe. This is my everyday bag and I love how it goes with pretty much anything (which is just as well considering how much it cost!) There's also cute 'turnlocks' on each of the pockets on the front...

But enough about the bag! Here's what's inside...

As you can see, even after I've put my essential bits & pieces, there's still loads of room left. Practical AND gorgeous? You bet! :) Day to day, I don't tend to carry too much in my bag as I like it to be neat and get to things easily. The larger the bag, the more things get lost! ;)

I always carry...

Purse - currently loving this gorgeous grey studded wallet from Topshop, which was a total bargain in their current sale at just £7 instead of £22! :)) It fully zips round, has a small zipped compartment for coins and plenty of slots for cards. I love it!

Makeup & Bag - I got this makeup bag from Clinique a couple of years ago and recently began using it again after I threw my old one away. I tend to carry a lipstick, a few lipglosses, concealer and a lip brush so that I can do touch-ups when out and about :) In there right now is:

* NARS lipgloss in Turkish Delight
* MAC lipglass in Florebundance
* MAC lipglass in Wildly Lush (you can just see the lid next to the Revlon tube!)
* MAC lipstick in Myth
* Revlon lipgloss in Peach Petal
* Estee Lauder lip brush (which was on the end of a lipliner)
* Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer in '03 Moderately Fair'

Sometimes I tend to chuck in a few cotton buds & another lipstick, depending on which shade I'm wearing. I always keep 'Myth' in there as I tend to mix that with everything!

Carex hand gel, tissues & tic tacs - I find these three little things soooo handy! The Carex hand gel is perfect for keeping my hands clean (public toilets - yuck!). This one is the grapefruit gel so I don't smell like a walking disinfectant bottle! ;) The tissues are from M&S and the tic tacs are just original mint flavour. I go through quite a few tic tacs in a day as I find chewing gum a bit gross. Fussy, moi?! ;)

Clarins bag with bits & pieces - I got this Clarins makeup bag last year and I love the pink & polka dot design. I tend to keep 'women's bits' in here (not in the photo, but you get the idea! ;), Aveda Hand Relief hand cream, a mini Dove deodorant (love the cucumber & green tea scent), hand wipes (these are by Elle MacPherson) and a compact mirror (which I got from Accessorize a couple of years ago).

I also have my phone and in the better weather my Stella McCartney sunglasses, which are huge black ones & I feel like a celeb wearing them :)

Hope that was interesting for you :) what's in your bag? x

  3. @bec thank you! :) I got it 6 months ago and I can't stop stroking it! lol! I'll check out your blog post :)

    @Straight Up Glam thanks! :) I'm so fussy about it, it's sad ;) I tend to clear it out every few days as I always have loads of receipts! x

  4. So that's the usual contents of a woman's bag, huh? Seems like make-up is a staple item, hehe. Have you ever wondered what's in a guy's bag? Well, it's about time that someone blogged about it. Check it out! Thanks. =)
