What’s in my Handbag? posts are such a classic Blogger post. Back in the day, everyone was posting about what they are carrying about. I usually take a smaller bag for travelling and been on the go, just to keep my essentials in so I’m not rummaging about my backpack or suitcase. This is a relatively new bag which I bought from Zara in Paris, you can find it online here. I think it’s so cute with the little embroidered bugs but it’s actually like a Mary Poppins bag and fits in so much!
What is in my handbag?
First up, we have my Mulberry purse which was my graduation present to myself last year. I bought it from Bicester Village and as it was still pretty pricey, I’m vowing not to buy another purse until I’m at least 30! I also have a cute Aspinal of London pouch which holds my different memory cards for my camera. Speaking of camera’s, I usually have my Olympus Pen and GoPro Hero 4 on me. My GroPro is a recent purchase and I’ve been loving using it on my travels.
Especially in the evenings, I have been experiencing quite bad heartburn recently. I tend to carry about a box of Rennie, I prefer the Orange flavoured ones but find them really effective. I have no idea why I’ve been experiencing it so much lately but I may have to see my doctor soon if it doesn’t go away!
To keep my life a little more organised, I carry around my Blogger Journal which I bought from Paperchase. I absolutely love it as it’s great for planning posts, jotting down ideas and organising expenses and payments. They still do sell this in-store but it started in June, so it’s kind of a waste now! I’ve also got my new travel wallet from Prezzy Box. This is just great for organising myself when I’m travelling as it has a space for all my tickets, money and my passport.
Of course, I’ve got quite a few beauty items. I usually take at least five lip products with me. At the moment, I’m loving the Kiehl’s Lip Balm and Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipsticks (This one is in the shade Mother). My current MAC lipsticks of choice are Ruby Woo which is the perfect matte red for this festive season and Up The Amp which is a gorgeous light purple. I also have my favourite NYX Lip Matte Cream in Stockholm. I’ve also got my Make-Up Forever Pro Sculpting Eyebrow kit from PAM Beauty. It’s a great little compact and keeps my eyebrows looking on fleek.
Finally, we’ve got my iPhone which I can’t live without. I’ve currently got this Lumie phone case on it to perfect my selfies. I’m not 100% sold on it as it’s made my phone so much bulky. I can’t seem to get it off so I might be stuck with it forever! I also take my Kit portable charger with me everywhere in case my battery dies!
So that’s my essentials! When everything is laid out like this, I can’t believe how much I take around with me. What’s your handbag essentials?
