Whats in my bag?

I don't know about you, but "what's in my bag?" videos are one my favourite videos to watch on youtube. Maybe it's because i'm nosy... I prefer to be called "inquisitive". So, I thought i'd join the train and show you what I keep in my bag!



The bag: My bag is actually from Forever 21. I am the type of person that doesn't really keep a lot of things in their bag so I don't really need to invest in a quality bag right at this minute. Having said that, this bag has lasted me for quite some time and is still going strong. As you can see, it is a "Chanel" inspired bag... But a lot cheaper than the real thing! I purchased this bag from America for about $16 two summers ago and I think it's an absolute bargain! If you would like to purchase a similar bag, you can do so at ASOS.

The wallet: This is a recent addition to my bag. For the longest time, I was using a purse from New look but it was far too battered for me to keep using it! In a desperate attempt to find something to keep all my cards in, I stumbled upon this men's wallet from Dents in my brothers room. I actually quite like the leather exterior of it and it does hold all my cards in it! This wallet keeps all the essential items, for example, my Nandos card. (And of course my money)

The phone: Wherever I go, my phone goes. It is quite sad to think that I can't properly function without my phone! This is the iphone 5 and my phone background is a photo I took from when I went to see the 1975 in January!

The beauty items: A girls gotta have somewhere to put her beauty items in! I'm not really much of a person who tops up her makeup throughout the day (unless it is lipstick), but it is nice to know that something is there just in case! I always carry around my Soap and Glory "One heck of a blot" powder with me. Not only is it the perfect translucent powder, but it also has a great mirror! I also carry the current lipstick I am using which happens to be Rimmel's "Starry Eyed" lipstick. This is a great burgundy colour and it also smells like sweets!

The must haves: Finally we get to the "must haves". These a products that I take with me wherever I go and never get switched out of my bag! First we have the hair band - a statement piece for a "I need my hair out of my face" look. Then we have anti-bacterial gel. This one is "Aqua Blossom" from Bath and Body works. This smells so fresh, it is so annoying that we don't have Bath and Body works here! I also carry my "Bach Rescue Remedy Spray" in my bag. This is an item that I have to have just so I don't turn into a nervous wreck! I am quite an anxious person, so this product is a life saver! And finally I have my contact lenses! Just so if the ones I am wearing pop out, I can easily pop another in!

So that is what I carry in my bag! What is the one thing that you have to take with you wherever you go?

  1. You do so well to keep rubbish out of your bag, I try to keep it minimal but it always ends up getting full!

  3. I'm not much of a person that messes with their makeup throughout the day either, but I always have to have a little bit of concealer with me at least :) And anti-bacterial hand gel is definitely a must, along with hand cream and lip balm!

  5. Je préfère un sac différent qui ne me fait pas penser à une autre marque mais à un pays ou bien à une époque ou bien à la campagne.
