What’s in the bag?

Posted in Fashion, Home.

My mother always tells me off for carting half my life around in my handbag. “It’s bad for the posture”, she would say. She’s probably right, but how could a girl survive without these absolute essentials lurking beneath the leather?

From L-R: Wool gloves, Benefit lip gloss, Burt’s Bees lip balm, BlackBerry, notebook and pen, Fossil leather slouchy bag, Loungefly purse, Marc Jacob’s Daisy perfume, L’Occitane hand cream, Bourjois blusher pot

I don’t know how I’d get through the day without this little lot, but if I had to choose one thing I simply could not be without, it’d be the Bourjois pot. A brush with blusher after lunch is a ritual for me – it brightens up my face (usually greyed from a morning of heavy duty writing!), freshens my makeup and makes me feel alive again. I recommend these mini miracles to you all!

What do you lug around with you on a daily basis? Care to share your bag booty?

I love your slouchy leather bag and that purse is just stunning.
Like you, I always carry blusher. Eyeliner, a hair band, woolly hat, some cash and a spare tote bag are also essentials!

My partner thinks I carry so much crap but I tell him I need these things for “just in case” matters 🙂
I always carry my diary, mobile and my hayfever tablets.


Love the purse! and the notebook is so sweet!

I find the bigger my bag, the more I stuff in it. Just a shame I love huge bags!! 🙂 x


I always get told that I carry too much, but I find it hard to not take so much! Asprin, lip balm, money, cards, gloves, tissues, hand wash, etc.. Man my bag post is going to be huge!!

Gosh, you don’t want to know what’s inside my bag… I have the whole house with me. That’s why I love bringing huge bags.


How cute that you carry all these stuff with you all the time! My bags are always pretty empty, I just can’t bear all those weight on my shoulder!! So, I put only the bare essentials in them:)

Ooh, yay for a peek into your handbag! I have an obsession with nosing into people’s purses – so rude, I know!

I carry about six tubes of lipgloss in my bag – in addition to eyeliner, concealer, a comb, perfume – and that’s in my makeup bag alone! Then there is the Blackberry, my business cards, a pocket mirror, my wallet, a notebook – basically everything but the kitchen sink is in there! 🙂


Ahhh, so good to know your bag contents too now, Jen. I really love the smell of Daisy and the Occitane handcream (plus the foot cream) is part of my handcream collection, too.
