Do people still do these blog posts? Seems they were all the rage a few years ago, and I still love reading and watching people do them!
Something about getting a glimpse into what really is an everyday necessity for the beauty gurus of the internet is so darn interesting. Maybe I’m just nosey? Who knows!
For starters I’ll share with you what my purse looks like 👜 (I am giggling now because I realize my purse looks very similar to the purse emoji 😂)
See? Now you see it too!
Anyhoo, it’s a David Jones Bag and it was a Christmas gift about 2 years ago. Also I’m not a designer savvy person, so I have no idea the value, I just love the bag.
To go with the bag is a rather funny story. My brother was the one who bought it for Christmas, and originally gave it to my mum. For me he got a nice shoulder bag, very pretty and dainty. However, as Christmas Day went on, mum and I had realized we were secretly eyeing up each others bags and decided to switch. Of course we asked to make sure it was ok and boom! Here we are 2 years later, still so in love with the design and everything! It also comes with a shoulder strap but I tend to cram it so full of stuff it’s too heavy for my shoulder.
Onto the good stuff!
As you can see I basically carry a back up for anything that might happen during the day.
~My planner/ calendar in case I need to save a date or write down an idea. I am VERY good at forgetting dates and numbers so this is my lifeline.
~ Fingerless mittens, because I like my hands warm but let’s be real, it’s impossible to really do anything with mittens on.
~ Deodorant (because even the best of us need a freshen up sometimes)
~ Also a small rollerball perfume, which is perfect for a handbag because no accidental spritzing will happen. Mine is by Sarah Jessica Parker and it’s called ‘Lovely’.
~ Hair pins/ ties. I have a million of them and I use all million of them.
~ Makeup. I always have at least 3 lipsticks for some reason, as well as coverup for touch ups, and powder to stop that shine, and a dense powder brush.
~ Advil. This might be an odd one but as someone with very terrible cramps, and a weird tendency to get headaches I’ve learned to never leave the house without it. Plus Its nice to come to someones rescue if they need one.
~ Headphones. 2 pairs to be exact because apple just HAD to change the headphone jack on the iPhone. I’m not bitter or anything…
~ My iPod nano. To me there’s nothing worse that A. Waiting somewhere with no music, or B. Being stuck with the radio in a car. Gotta have your tunes!
~ My wallet by Matt and Nat. It’s cream and rose gold so I had to get it. Lasted me 3 years and going strong! I literally just use this to carry my debit card, license and the plethora of points cards I insist I need.
~Chapstick/lip balm. I am actually impressed there was only one in my bag this time, usually I have about 20.
~Lastly my glasses + case. The biggest sign that I was finally an adult was when I realized the importance of a case for your glasses. Whether I want to swap from contacts to glasses or the other way around I can’t leave home without both.
I am just realizing now that I forgot my iPhone in this picture but usually my iPhone is firmly planted where I %100 know where it is, in my pocket or in my hand lol. Ive had a phone stolen from me and it’s the worst feeling in the world.
Thanks s always for stopping by! HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
