What's in my handbag? - April 2014 ❤

My handbag is literally filled to the brim with rubbish and was in desperate need of a clear out and I needed an idea for a blog post, so I though I'd kill two birds with one stone and do a what's in my handbag!


After a good rummage and a big clear out session, these are now the contents of my handbag!

My handbag is a nudey/beige leather tote with studs and diamonds from c&a, I got it back in August when I went to Belgium.

In it I keep my purse which is from a little Bag shop in Minehead and I have the matching bag, but I'm sure you could find one quite similar in Cath Kidston if you cannot find this exact one.

Then I keep my iPad mini because I absolutely love it, it's so handy and it's the perfect size to keep in your handbag for on the go.

Then I normally have my phone and my headphones, I couldn't be without my phone, I love it!

Then I normally have some sort of food, today I had Cadbury's Crunchums! These are literally the best things I have ever tasted and I kid you not, I went in to Home Bargains on Monday and bought a basketful.....yes 10 packets, the lady at the till looked at me as if I was some sort of crazy woman!

I always have some chewing gum because I always get paranoid about bad breath and I just like to have something to chew!

Then I have my diary because I am extremely forgetful and if I don't write things down, I will forget about them completely.  The same with my notebook, if I have a blog post idea or something pops into my head, I have to write it down before I completely forget it and it bugs me!

I have sunglasses because I am prone to headaches from bright lights and with the unpredictable weather here in England, you never know if the sun is going to come out! (pfftt, fat chance, but I like to be prepared just in case!)

I have a little makeup bag where I normally keep the lipstick/gloss I was wearing that day for touchups (today was mac peach blossom with a dab of nars turkish delight over the top) and powder for touchups.  I also keep a mirror, travelo, a lip balm and a nail file because chipped and rough nails bug the hell out of me!!

Last but not least, I have my soap and glory hand maid for on the go sanitisation (that is a big word) and my hand food hand cream because I suffer with really dry hands and I literally can't bare it!!

Having a clean (ish) bag makes life so much easier, I can find whatever I'm looking for quickly without having to rifle through the plethora of receipts, crumbs, wrappers, bottles, packets, you name it, its in there!
