What's in my bag?

Friday, 1 November 2013

I haven't done a post like this before but I know how nosey you all are (if you're anything like me!) so I'll give it a shot. Basically, I'm heading out on a shopping trip to Norwich today and took the opportunity to rearrange my bag. Now, normally, I carry my whole life in my bag which means it's pretty much impossible to find anything I'm looking for. Typically, I'll have about 5 lipsticks, 2 purses, old receipts (just in case) my WHOLE makeup bag, a million bus tickets... you get the picture! I've put things in my bag, only to never see them again, they just disappear and I even found a tape measure in there the other day!     But every now and again I think enough is enough. I get fed up of the mess and decide to have a rearrange. This is when I place my ESSENTIAL items into my bag in an attempt to organise myself slightly (this normally lasts all of 24 hours if lucky!) and make finding things just a little bit easier. So here's what I chose as my 'essential' items...

Of course you've got the standard phone, purse, keys combo but I also like to take some extras 'just in case'. 
A lipbalm and lipstick will always be in my bag, along with a mirror and some face powder to battle those shiny situations. I also take a small selection of makeup; things I may realistically use while out such as eyeliner and lipcote (as much as I hate the stuff!). 
Some sort of fragrance is always essential for me as well, here, I've got 2, a little EDT and a body spritz, depending on my mood (yes, that's a necessity!). 
Then there are some hair clips, pins and a comb in case of gale-force winds.
A nail file for those moments you get caught out with half a nail hanging off your finger (my nails are so brittle!)
 And lastly my glasses because I can't see a damn thing! Ha!

Now I just need a new bag to put it all in...

What's at the top of your essentials list?
