What's in my handbag

So this is what I carry around with me on a day out...
I have always enjoyed reading other blogger's 'What's in my handbag' posts so I thought I would do one myself. Compared to many people I don't really carry around a lot in my handbag. At the moment I like using my medium sized satchel bag I bought from Tesco a couple of months ago, so I only really carry around what I consider to be 'essentials.' The good thing about not having a big handbag is that I don't have to spend ages rummaging around looking for my phone, keys or that stray bobby pin!

I only got my iPhone 4 a couple of months ago but it quickly became my baby. I would literally feel lost without it and like most of the blogging community I am now an instagram-addict. Halp! Isn't my phone case adorable? It was one of the Christmas presents James bought me a long with the ever-so-gorgeous Radley purse. I love the colour of my purse and it is the perfect size for fitting all my cards and coins into.

You may be wondering what I am doing carry around a straw with me. Well recently I have started working for a company called Hot Straw UK who sell straws that are designed to use in hot drinks. I have become quickly attached to my Hot Straw as it stops me smearing my lipstick all over take out coffee cups when I'm out and about, and also prevents the coffee from spilling out of the little hole - which for a clumsy person like me, happens all the time.

Looking at the image above you can tell that I don't really bother taking a lot of makeup out with me. I think it's because I am always worried about losing bits and bobs and when I'm seeing my friends I am usually having way too much fun to worry about whether I need to sort out my eye liner etc. I tend to just take out a lip crayon or  lip balm and a concealer or face powder. Unfortunately I have the sort of hair that knots as soon as I step out of the door, which is why I bought myself a Tangle Teezer. I absolutely love this little brush and it is perfect for popping into my handbag to take out with me. Bobby pins / bobbles also come in use for scary-hair days. I usually carry around a hand cream of some sort, with my current favourite being Soap & Glory's Hand Food. It smells divine and leaves your hands feeling soft (but not greasy).

If I am hopping on the bus somewhere I usually like to take my Kindle with me. I got it for my birthday and have found that I have been reading much more since then. As much as I like real books I simply have nowhere to store them. The final item I always try to carry in my handbag is my blog and jewellery business cards. You never know when you are going to bump into a possible networking contact!

So there we have it! I hope you have enjoyed my post. If you have done a 'What's in my handbag' post feel free to leave your link below so I can pop over and have a read. xo
