What's In My Bag..?

This is such a cliche beauty/lifestyle blogger post to write about but let's be honest, I just had to show you! I don't know about you, but I love watching/reading these videos/posts because I am just such a nosey person that likes to know what people carry around in their bags!


I'm not going to lie and say my bag and the contents of my bag is as spotless as it seems in the photos I took, because saying that I am a glamorous, classy women who doesn't carry hair, crumbs and receipts in her bag like everyone else would be a complete lie! Of course my bag is filled with as much crap as every other girl's,  and to be honest it did get a well deserved clean while I was taking the photos for this post! I also did have a slightly cheeky second where I thought that I would pop a few extra 'cool' items into the mix and pretend that I carry them around with my constantly.. but where's the fun in that?! I also realised after taking this pictures the crazy amount of pink that I carry around with me... I honestly didn't know that I was such a pink fan.. but apparently if you empty out my bag I look like a  real girly girl.

BAG

My gorgeous bag is from Zara and was around £30 and has seen me through for a good year now! I love it to pieces! I've surprised myself actually because normally after around 6 months to a year, I tend to get bored of my current handbag and have to move on to another (oh no..!) but I love this one to bits and could never see myself not using it! This bag is actually one of Zara's reversible ones and you could actually turn it inside out and have it as a red bag.. I've never actually done this, but I really really should, I keep forgetting!! Zara handbags are one of the main reasons why I love Zara so much! All of the designs are beautiful and the quality is amazing so you really get what you paid for! I actually had their Office City bag before this one which lasted me for so long and is still in a good quality now (after about 3 years!) *It's actually on sale now for £9.99 if you're tempted!! 

EMERGENCY KIT

The pink spotty bag thing is my emergency kit - I've had this little kit tucked inside my bag for so many years now I can't even remember where I got the bag from! I got this idea from watching Zoella's 'What's In My Handbag' many years ago and I decided I wanted one of my own! Luckily I've never had to use it in a real emergency but nevertheless it is still filled with plasters of all varieties, tablets (headaches, travel sickness), a tiny torch, hand santiser, gloves, and a razor!  Because you never know when you might need these things, honestly, if you don't have one of these in your bag I highly recommend it because you never know when you might need a torch or a razor!

DIARY

I always carry my diary around in my bag because I'm a huge fan of lists (I blame my Mum.. shes like the list queen!) I bought this lovely journal back in December and have carried it around with me ever since I could start writing in it. I write myself a to-do list every day and tick it off as I complete tasks, I find it so helpful and motivating to be able to tick off when you've done something - then at the end of the month you can look back and see how much you have accomplished! You can find my review on this gorgeous journal to find out where I got it and more information here!

PURSE

My friend actually bought this purse from Topshop a few months ago, she bought it in a yellow colour though - but when I saw that you could get it in this gorgeous brown colour I couldn't stop myself and we became purse twins! I love this purse so much because it has a huge pocket for storing all your change - which I have a lot of! And also the card section opens up so it's easy to see all your cards.. naturally this purse if full of crap and needs a good sort out, but not right now!

SUNGLASSES

These sunglasses were actually about £2 from Primark - I love a good Primark bargain! And although they aren't getting much use at the moment I still love to carry them around with my just in case! Honestly, I can't wait for the sun to come back out so I can hide my face behind my glasses and not have to wear makeup!!

UMBRELLA

Although it's a bit of a pain in the ass I always carry around my umbrella. Living in the UK you never know when you'll end up in a downpour and I have been caught out on too many occasions! Mine is from TKMaxx and it's one of those ones where you push a button and it pops up so I feel really professional and classy when I pop it up in the rain.. simple things!
PASSPORT

 Being a student who is not only too lazy to buy a citizen card or provisional license but also cannot yet drive means that I have to carry my passport around with me as ID. I don't mind though because I have a really cute cover from Cath Kidston on it! (All of the security people in clubs hate me though because they have to take the cover off to scan it...)

OTHER

 So other than all the crap that ends up in the bottom of my bag (which I decided not to photograph.. funnily enough!) There is some useful crap that ends up down there, things that I'm always looking for around my house -  like pens, lip balm and hairbands!


There you have it! I hope you enjoyed my little insight into my handbag! I'd love to know what's in your bags so let me know in the comments or link me to your posts - because I am so so nosey!
