What's In My Bag?

I love these kind of posts!  I am very nosy so they are right up my street.  I've been putting off doing one though because I was waiting until I got a new bag, the one I was using was quite big cos I used it for all my uni stuff so I needed A4 note pads, calculator, ruler... all that fun stuff.  However now that I won't be going back to uni I downsized and got this bag from H&M for £12.99 I think it was?

So that is it full, and below is with everything taken out!  I forgot a couple of things actually but only a pen and a lip balm so nothing too drastic!

  1. My Kindle, or a book depending on what I'm reading at the time.  I've got a couple on the go at the moment...
  2. My diary, I love writing everything down!  I have a terrible memory so this makes sure I don't forgot any plans I've made.
  3. Cath Kidson travel card case, this was more handy for when I had my 1/3 off discount and used monthly season tickets but I still keep it in my bag anyway, it looks cute!
  4. Ted Baker purse.  Orange is one of my favourite colours!  Sadly it is leather so I will probably be selling it in the next year or so but I only got it for my birthday and I love it so I'm trying to make good use of it.
  5. Car and house keys.  I like to keep them all together so that if I'm using the car then I will definitely have my house keys with me too.
  6. Wee foldy hairbrush, very handy to keep in your bag, also has a mirror on it too!
  7. My swipes and badge for work, I always have these in my bag so I don't turn up without them!
  8. This is a sort of emergency kit which I've put together and I'll show the contents of it below.
  9. My iPhone!  It also has a wee orange sock to protect it but I'm not sure where that is at the moment...
The 'emergency kit' and work swipes I keep in the flapover part of the bag, the tassles are actually attached to zips so it makes a handy extra storage area.

In my wee bag I have:

  • Hand gel
  • Bobble
  • Earphones
  • Oragel for ulcers but I use it for my wisdom teeth coming in - I highly recommend it!
  • Ibuprofen and Pro Plus
  • Eye drops
  • Contact lenses
  • Nail file
  • Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream tinted lip stuff (not CF)
  • And half a hanky...

Finally here's a close of up of my purse and some of the cards I have in it:

  • Boots card
  • Superdrug card
  • Debenhams Beauty Club card
  • Student card
  • Drivers license
  • AA members card
  • Morrisons Miles card

Obviously I then have my debit card (I don't keep my credit card in my purse, too much temptation!) and credit card I need for staff discount but they aren't shown.  I also have a library card but I had taken it out and forgot to put it back after going to the library yesterday.

Hope you've enjoyed reading this, I really enjoyed putting it together!  Sorry, it's a bit of a long one haha!



  1. Your purse is lovely, it's a shame your selling it.


    1. I know I love it! Just cos it's leather and I'm basically vegetarian so I don't buy leather any more, but just using what I've got! Hopefully get a good amount for it :)

  2. great blogpost! love your bag :) xx

  3. your bag is so much more organised than mine, i have so much rubbish at the bottom, haha! i love my kindle, such a great travel item! x

    1. Probably cos it's still quite new lol! I'm sure the rubbish will start to build up soon :P I knoww it's just so handy!

  4. Oh, I love the tip about not keeping your credit card in your purse - I should really start doing that one! x

    1. Hahah it's dangerous! I don't even know my PIN! I just use it for online stuff :)

  5. LOL @ half a hanky!

    Despite having been veggie for a year now I still have bits of leather floating about. It can be really hard to get rid of it all. It's not like chucking/finished the last of the meat in the fridge.

    1. Hahah I know, I considered missing it out for the photo but thought ach why not :P I actually used it tonight! Very useful!

      Yeah it's really difficult, my work shoes are leather and they're sooo comfy, no way I'd bin them til they wear out - which is probably going to be quite soon admittedly lol! I sold a couple of my leather purses on ebay and got not a bad amount for them so I'm getting there haha.

  6. I love this kind of posts too! Cute bag.

  7. What a cute bag! I wish I could downsize, uni is so hard on my poor shoulders! Definitely going to remember the Oralgel recommendation, thanks for that! Loving your blog concept, yay for cruelty free!
