What's in my bag

I thought I'd do a 'What's in my bag' post, seeing as the one I did previously was like a year ago.

This is my handbag...the one I use the most. I bought it on a whim from New Look, and never regretted it. It fits tons inside and it never looks bulky or gets uncomfortable to hold.

I used to be one of those people that carried literally everything in a large bag, but I kicked that habit, and now go out with the essentials (often glaring at those who accidently wack me with their oversized bags which, judging by the bruises on my arms, I'm convinced are filled with bricks).

Photobucket

So the essentials are: an umbrella (because it ALWAYS rains), plasters (because bloody feet in heels are not cool), a notebook, pen, business cards (you never know who you'll run into), my oyster card (always topped up), a USB (you never know), Carmex lip balm, a mirror, lipstick (mine wears off really quickly), eyeliner and cream.

Then there are the things I would never dream about leaving the house with. No matter where I'm going, these things will ALL come with me. I always have a book with me, no matter what. I'm currently reading One Day, as I wanted to read it before I see the movie. I'm not going to lie, it started off nicely, but I'm not even half way through and I'm finding it really boring. I'm definitely not going to watch the movie at the cinema.

There's also my wallet (I treated myself to a Marc by Mar Jacobs one), my new Windows 7 phone (which I LOVE), my MP3 Player (it's a Creative Zen), my keys and a purse for all my coins (the big cupcake).

You'd have noticed the quirky 2 additions: the cupcake purse and the diamond hanging from my keys. Both were gifted by Find Me A Gift and I love how fun they are.

The cupcake purse is so adorable and sweet, I love having it in my bag, after all, everyone LOVES cupcakes. It's from the Fluff range and comes with an explicit caution: 'Use of this product may cause spontaneous delight': Awesome, right? It's amazing quality and the sprinkles are actually beads. It's also pretty big on the inside, so fits a lot.

The diamond hanging from my keys is actually a 'bag light': such a useful invention. We've all been there, where you're looking for something in your bag, but can't seem to find it. But I won't have this problem anymore. This is seriously something that every girl needs in their bag. And the light actually works properly as in you can properly see into your bag when the light is on: see below.

Well, that bag light is okay to find stuff in your bag if you can find the light!

And how are you managing to find One Day boring?! Unless... are you reading it in little bits? Because then the whole year structure thing won't work and the book won't seem right. Make the time to read it in a couple of sittings (I did it in a day straight) and you'll see why they are calling it one of the most moving books of the generation...

Totally love that this is your version of not carrying everything around with you! You've got so much stuff in there! Haha. Oh man. If I'm ever stuck in a rough situation I want to be with you... plasters, a memory card, a bag light, a mirror... you've seriously got everything a girl could need!

Most days I've just got my wallet, keys, phone and camera. xx

Reena Rai said...

Fabulous bag! And filled with fabulousness, of course. ;)

This post just reminded me that I need to pop my business cards in my purse! I keep forgetting to do that. :P

I saw One Day last night and it was a good movie. Anne's accent (even to ME) is off, but she is lovely in it. Hehe.

Ani. said...

I'm afraid I'm one of those crazy bag ladies who carry around way, way too much with them. But I'm always afraid I forget something!

Seems like you're the first person to say One Day is boring. Everyone I know LOVES it!

Michelle Goldie said...

Oh this is so funny, I am taking pictures of all the girls' bags in my office! You'll probably see the post next week ;) The oyster card is definitely essential!
Have a nice day

I carry way too much around. The bag light is a genious idea. I need one in my life!

SomeKindOfStyle said...

Winnie said...

Sherin, I am LOVING that cupcake purse, it is so unbelievably cute. You better hide that if I ever see you!

I've been wondering about that One Day book. It's so popular and it makes me not want to read it if that makes sense? Interesting that you didn't like it!

I really need to do a post like this. I made one years ago but it's always fun to do!

Isabel said...
