Tag | What's In My Bag?

14 Nov 2012

Well hello there!

I've seen this tag on so many other blogs and I always find it weirdly interesting, so thought I'd jump on the bandwagon too! :)

I quite literally use this bag every single day, its my favourite bag purely because its so damn big! I always seem to carry around a silly amount of things with me and then complain that my bag is too heavy. I never learn, clearly! Its from Topshop, and is actually quite a vibrant mint green (my favourite colour in the whole wide world, ever.) though it doesn't really look it in the picture! I got it way back in April of this year and I think it was about £35! Pretty standard for Topshop really!

So inside I have;

My Cath Kidston purse that my boyfriend bought me! The last two purses that I've had have both been stolen! I have the worst luck ever! :( After the last stealing, I refused to spend anymore money on nice pretty purses, so this present was a lovely surprise :)
My keys, customary clubcard and a Lego Harry Potter keyring that my best friend bought me years ago! :)
And, my oyster card holder, which is actually a 'phonetic tube map' that I got from Camden Market a few years ago;

I then have the boring customary things; Primark Comb, Compact Brush from Boots, Umbrella (that I acquired from work...and never really gave back)

Various pens (including my favourite Hard Rock Cafe one!), ibruprofen (because a woman is always prepared!), a hair band and my bag is always full of kirby grips.

I also carry, a Charlie Deoderant in Spirit, Carex Aloe Vera hand sanitiser, Boots Essential Tinted Lip Salve (which I actually really don't like, but hey!) and a Topshop Lip Balm (which they don't seem to make anymore, which is a real bummer as mines nearly finished! :(!). Sorry for how grubby the Topshop lip balm looks, but I defy anyone to carry around Topshop products a lot and maintain the pretty pristine white packaging!

Make-up wise, I really don't carry alot! I'm not a massive one for touching up on the go, unless I'm going out out, or somewhere special and thats when I'll bring a proper make-up bag with me. If not, this is all I carry; my Benefit Erase Paste in No.2 (which I can't live without!), Jemma Kidd I-Glamour Define Eyeliner in 01 Black (which I actually got free with ELLE magazine, and is really good for touch-ups), a sample of Lady Gaga's Fame Perfume (which I got in the September Glossy Box) and the much talked about Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 which I was using that day.

I also carry a super lovely compact mirror that my best friend bought me about 5 years ago, so I don't think its too worse for wear considering! :)

I always always carry around my ipod nano (which they don't make anymore :(!) and my Urban Ears Headphones. They don't make this colour anymore, but they are literally the best headphones ever! I love them!

Lastly, (I realise this has been really long, so I do apologise!) I always have a book on the go, and my bag is so big it fits them in nicely :) At the moment I'm reading Miranda Hart's auto-biography Is It Just Me? which I am lovinggg! :)

And thats it! All that fits in my bag! haha I tag you all to do this aswell! Let me know if you do in the comments, so I can have a look :)

Bye for now!
