What’s In My Handbag?

Posted on 3 min read

… Because you’re all just dying to know, aren’t you?

Firstly, let’s start off with the bag itself, shall we? It’s a satchel that I bought in the Accessorize January Sale either this year or last; it cost £22 instead of £32 and it’s been one of my staple handbags ever since.

(I own a lot of handbags. Far too many. When I buy my own house, I’ll probably have to dedicate an entire room to handbag storage…)

Canon Powershot A810 Digital Camera 

It always helps to have a little camera to save carrying my DLSR around or just in case my phone decides to act up. Which it does. A lot.

Owl Purse

This is one I picked up in Accessorize a few months ago. I honestly can’t remember how much it cost me, but it’s quite cute, isn’t it?

Apple iPhone 5

Yeah, I’m one of those smug idiots that’s addicted to buying Apple products. I understand if you stop reading and never visit my blog again…

PNY Portable Phone Charger

Oh my goodness, this is a lifesaver. If you’ve got a smartphone, you’ll know how awful the battery life can be. This is a wonderful invention that charges your phone up on the go! It’s fantastic if you’re out of the house for a long time! It cost me about £10 from Currys PC World.

Car Key

Where would I be without Clive the Corsa? Stranded probably. Which is where I am with Clive the Corsa anyway because he has a pesky habit of breaking down a lot… Complete with a Winnie the Pooh keyring because I’m still a child trapped in an adult’s body.

Carmex Lip Balm

I know I’ve raved about this before, so I won’t go into too much detail. It’s probably my favourite lip balm right now and I carry it around with me everywhere I go.

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer

Again, I’ve mentioned this before. It’s brilliant, but expensive, so I only save it for those days where nothing else shifts those nasty dark circles.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Another one I’ve already raved about. It’s the best liquid concealer that I’ve ever stumbled across. I’ve used it for years. Try it!

Boots Intensive Eye Drops

Bit of an odd one, I know. I’m supposed to use eye drops four times a day because my eyes are weird and these are the best value ones that I’ve found. They stop my eyes from feeling icky but they don’t cost the earth. Wonderful.

Mac Lipstick

I’ve mentioned this before too! My favourite lipstick. This is in ‘Coral Bliss’ which is a gorgeous subtle pink shade.

Cath Kidston Travel Card Holder

I’m obsessed with Cath Kidston stuff, I hold my hands up. This is a lovely bird print travel card holder that I keep my Railcard, Bite Card and Mango cards in.

This post is really handy if you were thinking of mugging me. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting now, won’t you? 

Cookie doesn’t stay in my handbag, but he wouldn’t let me take photos for this post without sticking his nose in front of my camera.
