What's In My Handbag?
Tuesday, 10 July 2012
I've been wanting to do this post for a while now, but I wanted to wait until my new digital camera arrived and it arrived today! I'm more excited about it than I should be...
My bag is just a cheap one from Primark, it was £9. It's like a small rucksack with a drawstring tie, quite small but perfect for day-to-day use.
The contents do vary a lot, I tend to chuck things in and take things out a lot but these are the typical things that I carry.
I've got my Kindle in there for reading on the bus, my ancient yellow iPod Nano, boring house keys, menthol cigarettes (horrible, I know!) and a couple of lighters. I always chuck in my The Body Shop Vanilla EDT which I featured in my recent haul post - it's a lovely sweet scent that I'm constantly spritzing! I also carry a small make-up case by Murad which usually has my Caudalie Beauty Elixir (mentioned in my June favourites post), Collection 2000 concealer in shade fair, Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait and a Figs and Rouge Rose lip balm which I received in a Glossybox. There's also some cheap eyelash curlers for on-the-go and the ELF High Definition powder for touch-ups because this makes my skin instantly matte without any cakeyness (that's not a word, is it?).
Last but probably most important, I carry my River Island purse which is black and bright coral inside which holds what little money I have and far more random cards than I really need.
Obviously, there's usually a lot of crap like receipts and rubbish, but I thought it was a good idea to bin all that before this post as I'm sure no one is interested in that! And my phone is always in there, too - purple Blackberry Curve with the most cringey case in the world which says "Don't be jel, be reem". Don't judge me.
