Updated: What's In My Bag?



Finally, I am here with my updated What's In My Bag post! I did one of these last year when I first started blogging and have been meaning to do an update for a while but I needed a new bag as my old one was falling apart. Primark is usually my go-to place for bags- I have never been much of a handbag girl so I tend to just buy one and then use it to death before purchasing another, so I don't see the point in splurging on an expensive Mulberry piece. My current bag is one that seems to have taken the blogging world by storm, and I couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon! It is the perfect size for fitting all my things in and I love that it also comes with a detachable longer strap. One thing that bugs me about Primark bags, however, is the lack of a zip as I am always cautious about the safety of my belongings, but I suppose at £12 I can't complain!

Anyway, here is the contents of my bag:

iPhone 4S | Purse | Notepad | Makeup bag (blush, lipstick, mascara, concealer, hair bands, hair grips, perfume samples) | Mirror | Tissues | Deodorant | Tangle Teezer | Umbrella | Keys | Lip balms | Pencil case | Sunglasses* | Phone charger | Earphones

The contents of my bag is pretty consistent and I don't normally find myself needing to swap things out. The only thing that really changes is my makeup bag, which depends on what make-up I am wearing on that day. Typically I just carry my concealer, mascara, a blush and a lipstick in there, as well as some hair bands, hair grips and perfume samples which I always keep in there just in case. If you are an iPhone user, you will know how awful the battery life is, so I always carry a spare charger around so I can charge it if I need to. God knows why I carry my sunglasses with me, they haven't seen daylight since my trip to France in July haha!

I hope you enjoy this post! Have you done something similar? I would love to have a nosy!
