What’s In My Bag?

Published by Donna Coppack on

I adore reading other people’s “What’s in my Bag” posts.  It’s like looking through someones bathroom or bookshelves, you can tell a lot about them from what they consider essential.

  • Mulberry Bayswater in Chocolate – goes with everything (or so I tell myself to justify the cost.)I have had this for 5 years so this is actually a good picture to show what happens when you use them.
  • Michael Kors Tech Wallet – birthday present (see this post.)
  • iPhone 4S – probably one of my favourite things in the whole world (bar immediate family.)
  • Sunglasses £12 from Accessorise as I always loose or break them so I just buy cheapies.
  • Paperchase MP3 wallet that actually contains, plasters, ibuprofen, calpol, blister plasters etc..
  • Tissues – boring.
  • Sweetners -can’t abide non-sweetened tea, and I don’t want to loose my teeth so the only option.
  • Keys- far too many, includes a mini swiss army knife that I end up using all the time.
  • Radley Reusable Bag – I hate plastic bags as they hurt your hands and you can’t put them over your shoulder when you need to go hands-free.
  • Makeup Case – clear so I can find things quickly, cost 75p from the stationers.

Inside My Makeup Case

I must say that unlike all the other beauty bloggers who keep there must-have items in their handbag , I am the opposite, I keep all the stuff I don’t like much so that at least it doesn’t get wasted.  So here are my meh… products
  • Clinique Almost Powder Makeup – Medium, looks cakey on but is fine for a quick touch up or to remove shine.  I loathe this packaging, I’m sure my Nan would love it though.
  • Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Honey – like the colour HATE the smell, smells like musty mint, not nice.
  • Clinique Colour Surge Impossibly Glossy in Azalea – I actually really like this, I bought 5 sample sized ones on ebay for £2 each (there’s one on my keys in the main picture too.) see picture below for colour on.
  • Maybelline Falsies Mascara – this is actually my go-to mascara but after using my mascara for 3 months I buy a new one (good girl), then I transfer the old one to my handbag (naughty girl.)
  • Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream – Love what it does, really dislike the smell.
  • Paname Mini Glass Nail File – Birthday present from husband. He bought me the full size Leighton Denny one, so he also got me this when he saw it.
  • Bobbi Brown Double Ended Brush – too small for normal use but fine for emergencies.
  • No7 Brown eyeliner- works for brows and for eyes, I use powder on my eyebrows usually but fine for a touch up.
  • Hairbrush – stolen from the girls after they broke my fold up one.
  • L’Occitane Eau des Vanilliers Solid Perfume – I love this smell but it’s sadly discontinued.
  • Benfit Eyeshadow in “It’s not you it’s me” – not pigmented enough for me, so in the handbag it goes.
  • Bodyshop Travel Sized Blush Brush – terrible blush brush, great for blending eyeshadow on the go.

Items I did not photographs for “artistic” reasons

  • Lady products (cough cough.)
  • Baby wipes (packet was a state.)
  • Bright Orange Tape measure that my son adores.
  • 2 winning scratch cards totalling…wait for it …£7!!!
  • Non-working lightbulb, so I can get the right replacement when I go to the shop.

So there you have it, my bag laid bare!

What do you keep in your bag? Feel free to post links below, I love looking at what other people keep in their bags, even if it does make me feel super-disorganised.
