A creative lifestyle blog.

Friday 22 August 2014


I have meaning to do this post since I started blogging back in the beginning of 2013. For me they are one of my favourite kind of post's to read cause hell, we all love a good nose around peoples handbags. For me these items are the bare essentials of my handbag, sunglasses, gloves and umbrellas make a seasonal appearance but these are the items that come along with me wherever I go. 

First off we have the handbag itself, the Michel Kors Large Selma Studded Saffiano Tote which was given to me on my birthday last year from my dear boyfriend and his lovely family. Inside the handbag my organisational issues are clear to see with every item having its place, including a bag within a bag just to store make up, pens etc, anything I would not want to roam freely around my handbag. Within the Whistles Pouch we have Chanel Les Beiges to keep shine at bay, a travel size Tresemme Instant Refresh for those fringe taming moments,  Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer as it's a firm lip favourite and Versace Crystal Noir rollerball perfume to keep my scent topped up at all times. 

Next up we have the Vivienne Westwood Saffiano Purse which I have already reviewed here so I will refrain from going on and on about that one but I keep all of my cards, cash and loose change in here. Big items done and out of the way the rest of my handbag is taken up by my Canon PowerShot SX240 which I use for general photos when I don't fancy taking bigger, heavier, 600D out and about. Then we have my house and car keys with a little wooden tulip keyring from my travels in Amsterdam. Last but not least my iPhone 5s and the headphones that came with it, currently unused but a must have on public transport. 

For me it is important to keep my handbag pretty minimal as during my college days I lived out of bags staying at friends during the week and have since developed a bad back meaning no more lugging around large overfilled bags for me. As a result of this I am pretty strict on streamlining the contests on my handbag and taking out the hundreds of lipsticks and receipts that seem to accumulate in the bottom of it and this is what we are left with. I am a little shocked that there is no stationary in here to be honest, small notebook recommendations in the comments please.
