What's In My Handbag?
The revamped contents of my handbag are all there for a reason, I no longer wish to feel weighed down by odds and sods I don't need to be carrying around with me! As you can see I have a bit of a love affair with Radley, my purse being a large flap-over wallet that houses my collection of 'points' cards for places like Boots, House of Fraser, Boux Avenue etc and my bank cards, my umbrella was a gift for Christmas a year ago, and the black folio looking item is actually my Kindle encased in a Radley case I received for Christmas in 2012. My brand loyalty doesn't stop there, oh no! I continue with the Cath Kidston theme with the lanyard for my keys and the little round mirror. I also carry around two MAC items, the first being a lipstick in whatever colour I choose that day from my collection and that lives in the teeny tiny clear plastic makeup bag (also from MAC) alongside my Soap & Glory hand sanitizer, a Balmi lip balm, a plaster, hair tie and a hair clip for when my new fringe gets annoying. I also like to carry around a perfume of reasonable size, and my current scent of choice is Armani Diamonds which is going to run out soon - boo.
The last 4 items are definitely essentials, my railcard goes everywhere with me, just in case, and is housed in a Durham University card wallet (got to show some love to my school!). A pen is always essential, and if I'm not carrying my Filofax, which I don't carry often 'cause it's so big, I definitely have to have a pen lurking about somewhere. My phone and my earphones are usually the last things to be added to the mix. I love listening to music on the bus/train, my current iPhone case of choice is the fab floral print design that I found in Primark of all places for a mere £2, bargain!
I usually also carry around a homemade lunch, but I didn't include that 'cause no-one really wants to see a picture of an old sandwich do they?!
