What's in my handbag?

Monday, 17 October 2011

As promised, this is my ‘What’s in your Handbag’ post – one that I have been meaning to do for a while, and hoped to do a video on it rather, but due to my impatience and bad hair day, a post will have to do :)
Natalie from Tails of a Mermaid suggested I do this post, after she did hers (which I loved reading!! See here). A few other bloggers have also got involved, and I have loved their posts too – if you are one of them, please tweet me the link – I would love to read it.
So this is what’s in my (heavily overloaded) handbag. I am one of those girls that will most probably have life-long back problems because of the weight of my bag; I just really need everything that’s in there.  
My handbag that I use is my Mulberry Bayswater that I got in London for my 21st – very special and goes with everything, and this is the contents (minus the peppermint packets and ridiculous amounts of receipts and business cards).
My bag

The contents:(From top left)

  • my business card holder for work one and Kiss, Blush and Tell one
  • A flash disk - always useful
  • My lip colours - Bobbi Brown high shimmer gloss in Bellini and hot pink, and then my ever-faithful Mac lipstick in Blankety
  • Cath Kidston wallet
  • Car keys with Cath Kidston key ring
  • Neurofen
  • I-Pad (goes everywhere with me in this eye-sore of a waterproof case haha)
  • Brown leather filofax - not too good at writing in this but anyhoo...
  • L'Occitane hand creme from my darling sister
  • My absolute favourite hand creme from Laura Mercier in Creme Brule (smells like heaven)
  • Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream (mini version)
  • Bubblegum
  • Tampon holder (how pretty!)
  • Miu Miu sunglasses
  • Essie nail colours (always need these, and normally have more) this is (from left) French Affair, Merino Cool and Nice is Nice


  1. Love it! You've inspired me to do a similar post :)
    Wish my handbag was a gorgeous as yours, though...

  2. Yay - please do one and tweet me link so I can read :)

  3. I wish the inside of my bag looked like this.

  4. LOVE your handbag. You picked a timeless piece. Great 21st idea. I had my 21st several months back and I still haven't picked a gift from my parents. I thought I wanted a ring (been looking around for the right ring now!) but maybe a piece like a handbag. I think I might do a post like this too! How fun. x

  5. @Shante - thank you. Belive me when I see more often than not is is a big mess - this makes it look a hellava lot tidier :)

  6. @Ally - thank you :) I love it. I also debated what to get for a while but I have decided each 'big' birthday I will get another designer bag - something that only gets better with time and tells a story. I was lucky enough to get a beautiful diamond ring from my granny too - these two have been my best presents ever!
