What’s In My Handbag? (2019)

Bringing back a clich├ęd blog series that nobody asked for! Muggers, take note...

Let’s pretend it’s 2014 again by going through my handbag. (Admittedly, a handbag that’s probably too small and impractical for a Granny like me who’s got everything bar the kitchen sink on her at all times, but this looks cuter in the pictures than a huge back-breaking receptacle, so…)

I last did one of these posts in 2016. Plus I even did one back in 2014, when this blog was in its infancy. So, seeing as it’s been a while, here’s what I chuck in my bag on a daily basis:

  • Kindle,
  • Glossier Coconut Balm Dot Com (Related post: Glossier First Impressions),
  • Tinted Vaseline tin,
  • Nivea cherry tinted lip balm (not pictured – because two lip balms clearly isn’t enough),
  • Small purse (yes, it’s a cat),
And the things that aren’t pictured:
  • Garnier hand cream,
  • 3 packs of tissues,
  • A jam-packed toiletries bag,
  • A brolly,
  • Sunglasses (I’m either optimistic or too lazy to take them out of my bag – take your pick),
  • Power bank,
  • Travel cards,
  • Several old, scrunched up receipts,
  • Crumbs (why do I always have crumbs at the bottom of every handbag? Is it just me or do you suffer from Random Handbag Crumb Accumulation disorder too? You’d think I’d used my bag as a plate or something for the amount of crumbs that collect in there…),
  • Keys,
  • Apple headphones (that are rarely used and hurt my ears),
  • A half-eaten packet of Polos,
  • Hand sanitiser foam,
  • A pair of emergency tights (in case I get a ladder or need to rob a bank at short notice or something),
  • A pair of gloves and a pair of fingerless gloves too (because I apparently have four hands),
  • A squashed cereal bar.

What’s in your handbag?
