What’s In My Handbag?

I feel like I’ve done an awful lot of beauty post recently (If you’re finding that annoying then let me know!) so I thought I’d mix it up a little and let you be nosy and see what I lug around in my handbag!

Black saffiano leather Michael Kors handbag 
First up the handbag. This is my new baby (I say new, August) from Michael Kors. It was a birthday present from my lovely boyfriend and I absolutely adore it.

Over the years what I’ve carried in my handbag has varied depending on whether I was commuting or at uni etc, but these are my staple items, the things I always have with me.

Nail file – An absolute must and I always carry one that’s in a case (my iPod learnt the hard way!)

Lip Balm – At the moment its the EOS Strawberry Sorbet and Sweet Mint balms.

Lip Colour – This Burt’s Bees lipbalm with a touch of colour is great for when I want more than lipbalm.

Sunglasses – My beloved Ray-Bans, aviator style, classic and suit my face.

Business Cards – I cannot emphasise how important business cards are! I always carry both my blog ones and personal ones with me at all time. Remember, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know!

Hand cream/moisturiserAs you know I’m obsessed with this REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Cream and it’s perfect for handbag usage, hands, elbows and shins love it!

Tea bags – At the moment I’m loving peppermint tea so I carry a few bags around with me in case I fancy a brew.

Mints/sweets – I’m a sugar freak so I always have something to munch in my handbag, mints, sweets, biscuits stolen from hotels…

Tissues – Am I the only one who carries them around? Why is it I’m always the one to be asked for one?!

What’s in your handbag?

    Loved this post! And no, you're definitely not the only one who carries around tissues, so do I!
