One of the most personal things to a girl is the contents of her bag, it can tell you a lot about their character and give you a small insight to their lives. I have decided to do my own ‘whats in my bag’ as I’m new to blogging and it seems to be a good introduction.
To start, this is my bag. It’s a Mulberry Bayswater in black natural leather with brass. I was lucky enough to receive this bag from my parents for my 21st birthday in July, and fell in love with it. I have been a fan of Mulberry for years and have collected a few pieces already but this is just a classic style that just seems timeless.
These are my travel essentials, as I have mentioned in my previous post, I work in London so I spend a lot of time on trains. The Kindle is great for this because it has a really good battery life and it’s still easy to operate even when squashed onto a packed train. I also have my continental purse to match my bag, this was a present from my boyfriend a few years ago, and I’m so glad I finally have the bag to match. The travel card was a little treat from myself for getting the job and finally the sunglasses are there for a touch of optimism and to hide tired morning eyes!
And the last of it – also known as the bits and bobs. These are always the hardest to find in my bag whenever I need them! I guess thats the curse of having such a large bag, you just tend to overfill. So to start, I am always, always, always getting ill! (ask my boyfriend) so I like to make sure I have a packet of paracetamol on me just incase I start to feel a little rough, its a horrible feeling not being well on the train, so it is more a precaution.
I then have some form of mints, hand gel, lip stick and lip balm- my current favourite is my EOS, I got a few out in America recently because they are so much cheaper! I am also quite an anxious person, so I keep a little bottle of rescue remedy with me, just to naturally calm any jitters I may have.
Next are my staple products, Chanel face powder and Bon Bon perfume, again being on a train for an hour or so can get a little hot, so to freshen up a bit I always have a spritz of this and powder my nose and I am ready to go again.
And my final two are my trusty tangle teezer and bottle of water, these are pretty self explanatory, I have extremely long, thick hair that can be a nightmare to manage, and the tangle teezer is the first product I have used that I feel actually does the job well!
So what do you have in your bag? Are you an over packer like me?
