What's In My Bag




Today has already been such a manic day and it is only 10am in the morning. I knew that I wanted to sit down and write a post today, but when I sat down at my desk with my MacBook in front of me, nothing seemed to flow naturally. So, I thought that for today’s post, I would just do something light hearted, easy to read and go for a ‘What’s in My Bag’, blog post. I think it is the nosey part inside of us all that likes to see what other people have in their handbag and whether it is in a YouTube video or a blog post, I love to take a look and see what people are carrying around with them in their handbags!

First up, I feel like I need to mention my handbag itself. I am somewhat of a handbag hoarder, I seem to buy them like they are going out of fashion. The one that I have been carrying day in and day out for months now is my Louis Vuitton Neverfull handbag. I feel like this is such a classic handbag, I am sure that many of you have seen this before. From being a really young girl, I have wanted this handbag and when I finally went ahead and bought it, I was chuffed with myself. This is a pretty pricey handbag, but by no stretch my most expensive. I think this is just a great and practical bag for everyday use. Now, onto what is inside it…


iPhone 7 Plus
No matter where I am going, I have to have my iPhone with me. I know that you either love iPhones or hate them, but I am definitely on them team. I have had an iPhone since they were first released back in 2007, I can remember that I was the coolest girl in comp because I had that iPhone. I have the biggest memory version that they sell because I use it all of the time for blogging, social media, my music and movies. This will always either be in my hand or my handbag!

Earphones
I pretty much live with my earphones in my ears. If I’m not listening to music, I am watching movies. I do have a big pair of Beats that I love, and I do use them, especially if I am on holiday or flying, but just for every day I keep a pair of Apple ones in my handbag. Plus, I have to mention this little earphone tidy that I bought off Etsy. I think this little thing only set me back around £7 and it is quite possibly the best thing I have ever bought. I am planning on investing in the Airpods though, they look so good, but oh so expensive for a pair of standard Apple earphones!

Notepad
I am a lover of writing things down. Even though I can quite easily open up a note on my phone to make a note of something, I love to put pen to paper and write things down. I don’t know what it is about it, but I just love it. I guess it is the old-fashioned part of me that likes writing things down. I seem to go through a new notebook every single month and this month I am on with a little marble number that I ordered from Amazon for a few pounds.

iPad
I cannot go a single day without reaching for my iPad and using it at least once. From my iPad I can do just about everything from keeping up with my blog, planning my work week and watching my movies and TV programmes. I have had an iPad since they were first released many years back and I honestly don’t think that I could be without it now. I think that for what I need, this is just pure perfection. This always comes with me in my handbag because it is my favourite tech kind of item!

Tech Bag
Then within my bag, I have another bag, and this is full of all of my tech goodies. I have my external hard-drive, which I use every single day. My old iPod, just in case anything ever happens to my iPhone. A portable charger. A spare pair of earphones. An iPhone charging wire. I like to keep everything like this in a little bag so that I can easily and quickly put my hand on something and, so it isn’t all rolling all over my bag and creating a mess!

Makeup Bag
I cannot leave the house in a morning without a little makeup bag in my handbag. I don’t carry much with me, I just take out and about with me the things I may need if I am having a full makeup meltdown. I usually have my MAC Full Coverage Cream Foundation, in case anything happens with my base. Eyelash glue, in case they peal of at the edges, as well as an empty kinder-egg in case I need to take them off. I also have in here my hand cream and a compact powder with a puff to hide my shine through the day. My little makeup bag that I carry with me is by Dior and I love it.

Meds Bag
I know that this may make me sound like I am in my late 80’s, but whenever I leave the house, I always make sure that I have a bag of different tablets and other bits. In this little bag I have everything that anybody could ever need, whether it be tablets for a headache or upset stomach. Tampons or plasters as well as different creams and lotions of anything from burns to stings. I am always prepared and the minute there is something wrong with somebody, they always come to me!

Far Too Many Keys
I also have my keys, which has far too many keys on. These are literally the heaviest thing that I have in my bag, they seem to weigh an absolute tonne. As well as having my car keys on this, I have so many normal keys. I even have keys, and I don’t know where they’re for anymore, but I’m too scared to bin them. I have a lovely little Louis Vuitton key holder, which I love and use all of the time, it is just a chic way of keeping your keys rather than a big ugly ball!

Passport and Travel Docs
I don’t think I actually said anything about it, but I have just gotten back from my summer holiday. I went to Portugal for a week with my other half and we had the best time. But, I still haven’t unpacked and put all of our things away. I keep our passports in a really safe place, but then I like to keep our boarding cards and other little keepsakes in a box that I have with all of the things from our trips and days out together.

There you have it, everything that I have loitering in my handbag. These are the things that I use pretty much every single day. I know that this was boring at the side of some people that have a whole world of shit at the bottom of their handbags, but I am very particular about keeping them nice and tidy. Make sure you leave me a comment down below and let me know what you have in your handbag!

  4. Oh I'm totally the same when I go out. I have a bag that's literally like my "emergency kit" that has everything from a nail file to ibiprofun, a mini mouth-wash and hair bobbles and gum, you just never know! I really need to get a headphone tidier as well, I just don't know if I would actually remember to use it though! xx

  5. I can definitely be a nosey parker sometimes so yes, I love to know what's in people's bags haha! I love this bag as well - so stunning, I've always wanted one but, obviously, it's on the pricey side! x Earphones and Makeup bag are definitely two items I can relate to - I love blocking the world out with my music on journeys and, well, I can't afford for my face to come off! x

  7. I am such a minimalist when it comes to my handbag and it's not even intentional. for some reason all I ever carry is my phone, wallet, earphones & keys with a few lipsticks that get collected over the course of the weeks. I never know what to place additionally in my bag but I feel like I need to as it's going to come back & bite me haha.
