What's in my bag

I am most definitely a bag person. When I've had a bad day you will most probably find me scrolling through the Louis Vuitton website, drooling over some Stella McCartney bag (the falabella anyone...), or dreaming about owning my own Celine bag. 

In Hawaii just over a year ago one of those dreams came true and I bought myself a Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Monogram. (It's my baby) I'm a lover of big bags especially for uni or work. There's always a hundred or so things I'm trying to squash in. So here's a condensed version of what's in my bag on a average day out for me.

Mimco pouch: If you don't own one of these you need it in your life. It's the perfect size for squashing everything from your card, phone and keys or lip glosses in. I always take it out with my on errands or on a nights out, so it's always in my bag because I often forget to transfer everything back into my main wallet.

Napoleon Perdis Greatest Hits Cheek Palatte: This bronzer, blush and highlight palette is honestly my saviour. It has lovely, wearable powders and is extremely compact, so perfect to take out with me on a night out or to travel with.

Hourglass Ambient Dim Light powder: The most wearable powder I've ever owned. It's very light and very wearable. Perfect for people with dry skin who want to add a touch of powder. 

Stila blush brush: This was from a Stila Christmas pack two years ago. It's great quality, washes well and the perfect size. I'm always surprised I don't hear more about Stilla brushes in the blogging community. 

Real Techniques Blush Brush: Again one of the most perfect brushes, I use it for powder. 

My phone: (Yep still on the 4S...)

Kikki.K Diary: One of my favourite stores to explore. They have the cutest stationary and Kikki.K is my first stop for a new diary.

Victoria Secrets Pure Seduction Mist: I have a massive sweet tooth so love the smell of this mist. It doesn't last long unfortunately but I love it regardless. 

Mecca cosmetica Lip De Luscious: If there was one thing I couldn't live without it would easily be lip balm. I'm quite susceptible to dry lips and this is the perfect saviour. It smells amazing and contains hyaluronic acid, an ingredient which helps to hydrate the skin. It's expensive but I've never regretted buying it. 

Prada Sunglasses: As well as handbags, sunglasses are my kryptonite. My favourite brands are Prada and Raybans, I'll always have a pair in my handbag. I love the tortoise shell print on these sunglasses, they go with everything. 

Mimco wallet: A 21st birthday present, the leather is so soft and beautiful. I love Mimco wallets and this pinky nude shade fits in well with most bags. 

I hope you've had a lovely week and enjoyed exploring what's in my bag :)

  2. I really want to get one of those little pouches, I always have pens, lipsticks, lip balms and other random bits floating around my bag, will be so much easier to find it all in a pouch!

    1. They're super useful! I just bought another one today.. whoops x

  3. Everyone loves those Hourglass powders! Everyone seems to love Kikki K stationery as well, they're so cute. I'm doing a very good job avoiding buying stuff from there so far, I definitely don't need any more notebooks or planners!
