What's in my bag?

Evening everyone!
I was having a little Zoella youtube rewatch today and came across her 'Whats in my bag?' video - as boring as it sounds, this was actually really interesting.. and that's not just because I love her!

So I came to the conclusion that I'd do my own little 'What's in my bag?' post in pictures - hopefully it doesn't turn out to be a total bore - let's aim to keep at least half of you awake by the end! The basic point is just to grab your bag from wherever it is and show everything that's in there - no matter how weird or whatever, just what's usually in there.

This is me, looking insanely keen with my bag (also known as one of the loves of my life)


This, gals and the occasional guy, is my bag - I think it was £14.99, from H&M a while ago. I absolutely love it, it has a long strap that I mainly use, which is literally a necessity for me; Let's just say I don't exactly get on with short strapped bags. Unfortunately *sobs* the strap snapped on me a few weeks back, so I've had to sew it back on - it's holding so far, but it can't carry much weight anymore, I think it's time for a new bag!


The first thing in my bag is obviously the most important: my much loved make up bag, which I stuff with all the 'essentials' before leaving the house. I got this for my last birthday and I absolutely adore it - plus it's actually big enough to fit all my makeup in for once!


Secondly, let me introduce my obsession: I love to write lists. Lists of anything - but mainly shopping lists, which isn't great for my bank balance.. You will never find me without a shopping list and a pen on me, for those little moments of retail inspiration, you never know when you'll think of something! (and big it up for the hello kitty paper! my sister's, not mine..)


I'm ashamed of this one: I've had this purse/wallet for about two years now, and I know it's all shabby and everything - i'm getting round to buying another one! I'm on the search for a gorgeous big patent cream one, with endless compartments and card holders - yum!


In my purse I found about ten thousand loyalty and gift cards - I should probably spend some of them.. I also found this milkshake loyalty card which I thought was so cute - I mean, the stamps are cows for heaven's sake, how cool! The Shaken Cow do THE best milkshakes (hence why I've had 5 recently..)


My beloved amazon Kindle! My mum bought me this to use on holiday this year, and I was totally glued to it the whole time - they are so useful to store hundreds of books around - seeing as I read ten on holiday, it was a darn sight lighter than lugging those around!


This is a bit of a weird one, I'm really not too sure why I have hand wipes - though they smell amazing! I'm out of hand sanitizer at the moment (another obsession?) so I probably threw these in as a substitute. 


Wow, we're really getting to the fun stuff now ;) I also depressingly found some chemistry homework I still have to do before sixth form starts in September - I should probably be doing it actually, instead of just blogging about how awful it looks..


I always have to carry around something fragranced with me, I love my little top ups throughout my day! I was recommended this spray by a blogger recently, and as they're half price in Superdrug at the moment (98p, whaaaat!) I popped out and bought myself one in my Mini 'Essentials' Haul a while ago. It smells gorgeous, all florally and girly, and is great for a quick freshen up.


This may look odd, but I always carry a pair of footsies around with me - you never know when shoes are going to start rubbing, and I like knowing I can slip these on if I end up doing a lot of walking.


Ever since I bought this solid perfume in my Holiday Haul, I've been totally in love with it - it has the most amazing smell, and is the size of a small lipstick - making it perfectly handbag sized, and I can pop some on whenever I need a little whiff of perfection!


I realise how boring this stuff is, so I'll be quick ;) Love love love my aviators after my holiday - they saved me! Obviously my keys (and the adorable little miss sunshine keyring my parents bought me one birthday), and a pen - just in case anything needs noting down! Love this pen because you can write in green, blue, pink or purple.. meaning I always have a totally jazzed up shopping/ to-do list!


There you go - no wonder the strap broke with all that in there! Hope you enjoyed this post and didn't find it utterly sleep provoking :')

  2. You totally just gave me the idea of adding footsies things in my bag. Whenever I wear flats for the first time in a while I ALWAYS get blisters. That is a way better idea than the old "pretend your skin isn't being rubbed off" look.

  4. Love these posts theyre so interesting but I'm so ocd I empty my bag as soon as I'm back home, might have to put it off for a while...and I feel bad for you with the chemistry homework, I've just recently dropped it and I cant tell you how relieved I am at not finding stupid sheets in my bag to do! Love your blog and I think I'm going to go purchase the solid perfume as it seems like such a good idea
