What Do The Contents Of Your Handbag Say About You?

Sunday, 5 July 2015

When I got tagged by Maddie from the lovely blog Dinner With Maddie to do this tag I thought "Yay!!" But that quickly turned into "Ah nuts!" as I actually don't have a day-to-day bag right now. For my job I have to lug around a heavy laptop and lots of work junk so unfortunately for me, I have to use an old school, ugly Jan Sport bag but... for the sake of this post let's pretend I have a really fancy high-end bag, okay?

I guess because of my lack of a "real" handbag, I don't really have much to talk about. I carry around very little in the front pocket of my backpack. My desk at work, however, that's a different story. It's full of hay fever medicine, lip balms and other random crap. Let's get back to my bag though and get chatting about what's inside...

Sunglasses
Maddie started with sunnies so I'm going to also! I got these tortoise shell ones from ASOS three years ago for 20 quid and they are still, surprisingly, going strong. I didn't used to be a sunglasses wearer, but now I've become totally addicted. Like Maddie, I find they can really cool-ify an outfit and ya know, they keep the sun out of my eyes too.

A Diary
I don't take notes. I don't write a diary. I'm not some cool professional that has so many appointments that I had to get this. This diary is useless. I don't know why I keep it in my bag! I think I had aspirations of being a high-flying working woman when I bought this, but I'm not!

One Concealer
I was surprised that I only had one concealer in my bag. I'm a bit of a concealer junkie. It's by far my most valued product, but right now I only have the Clarins Instant Concealer. I guess that's a testament to how great this little guy actually is.

Two Lip Products
Another surprise is only two lip products. My favourite budget nude from Kiko. Sadly it was limited edition but I love it. It's low key and not too obvious on the lips so it's perfect for an office environment with mostly guys. And then the Nuxe Reve de Miel cos it's amazing!

Headphones
If I forget my headphones, my day is ruined. I listen to Spotify all day at work and love a good podcast for the commute. My favourite being Comedy Bang! Bang! These are just cheap white ones that are so stained with makeup. It's a little gross.

A Magazine
I'm not going to read this Elle magazine. I might have a flick through, but I bought it for the purpose of using in blog pictures. I find they are a cheap and cheerful way to adding a little somethin' somethin' to images and that is the only reason why I picked this up.

That's all! Pretty clean and minimal if you ask me and I'm really proud of that! Also, I'd like to tag Yet Another Makeup Blog, Conflicted Beauty, Piccolo Lovely and anyone else who wants to do this tag! I can't wait to have a nosy around your bags!
