I bought a new bag the other day. One of my favourite shops in Cardiff is closing down (Rossiters – please don’t leave!) and they had loads of bags on sale, so I got stuck in and snapped up this lovely powder blue one for £15 (below). I’m not up on the current bag lady lingo – so bear with me – but I think you’d call it a cross-body, messenger bag (?). I’ve never been comfortable with a huge bag swinging from the crook of my elbow – I like to have my hands free – so cross-body bags are my fave. Anyway, I was moving everything over from my old bag (so many balled up receipts… gah!) and thought I’d take the opportunity to do a little ‘What’s in my Bag’ post. 🙂
▲ My Purse. Can you tell that I like blue? This little Micheal Kors clutch was a gift from my parents last summer. Inside it’s got plenty of room for cards and receipts, and keeps everything organised and easy to find.
▲ Tissue Pack. Can’t go out without plenty of tissues loaded up my sleeve, but when I’m feeling a bit more refined (or I’m sleeveless!) then you can’t go wrong with one of these packs from Tiger.
▲ Hair Tie. For hair emergencies (i.e. two hours after leaving the house).
▲ Revlon Lip Butter in ‘Berry Smoothie’. I think I’ve got every shade of the Revlon Lip Butters; the formula’s just so good. The shades are all quite natural and they never seem to dry out my lips. Their staying power isn’t as good as others (although they don’t leave that horrible lipstick line around the lips like some brands do), so I always have to cart my shade of choice around with me.
▲ Pen with Stylus. I always carry around a pen and this one’s extra handy because it’s got a stylus attached to the end. I’ve been getting into using Instagram Stories more, and so it’s handy to have something that allows me to add my handwriting 🙂
▲ Sunglasses. Wishful thinking, right? Still, a girl can dream! Now that we’re creeping towards summer I always keep a pair of sunglasses in my bag on the off chance that the sun makes an appearance. These ones are from Primark and I think they were only a pound. Can’t go wrong!
What’s in your bag right now?
