These are my absolute favourite posts to read! I have spent hours and hours searching and reading these (no shame…). So today as I was struggling to think about what I could write beauty related, I’ve come to the conclusion that today is the day I’m going to show you what’s in my bag. Yay!
My bag is from Zara, and I got it around October/November last year. It’s supposed to cost £99, but I got it for free (hehe). Basically, I had bought another bag (for around £25-£30) which I had for a few months but it broke, so I took it to the shop and asked if I could exchange it and they sadly no longer sold that exact one. But they were so sorry about my bag breaking that they said I could choose any other bag in the shop. So of course, I went and picked the prettiest, most expensive one…
This bag is perfect. It’s not too heavy, because I can’t deal with heavy. It’s not too small, and it’s not too big. I love the gold detailing, and the fact that I can use the short straps or the long one across my shoulder.
The most important thing in my bag is this! I don’t carry a lot of make-up around with me because I hate touching up but I do like to have something smelly – at the moment I have Ted Baker body mist, which smells like heaven. I also always make sure I have whatever nail polish I’m wearing that week too (just incase my nails chip). I keep a lip balm and lipstick, and of course a handy little compact mirror. And due to my hair being so untrustworthy, I have to keep a hair ribbon with me.
A purse is always handy. I got this one from TK Maxx for £10 about 3/4 years ago and we’re still going strong. I have millions of points and bargain cards (verging on obsessive), which is why my purse needs to be this big…
I always have either a book or my kindle in my bag. This is the oldest Kindle, about 5/6 years old and it’s my best friend.
And lastly, I like to have a pen and notebook with me for when I’m out and suddenly come up with an idea for a blog post or the book I’m writing.
Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Wednesday love to you all.
