What's In My Bag?

So hands down since I’m a pretty nosy person I love to read posts about what other people have in their bags. Therefore I thought it would be ideal to share with you guys what I’m recently carrying around in my handbag.

My bag is pretty big considering I’m not carrying around much stuff right now, but I use it for school so there has to be room enough for my computer and books as well.  
I have some random, but useful things in my bag.

First I have a bottle of water. You never know when you’ll get thirsty and sometimes I just like to drink water because I’m bored (this happens a lot when I'm in school). I also always carry a pack of gum, which I like to keep in a Mentos bottle, that way I don’t find the gums to fall out in my bag as easily as if they were in their normal paper packaging. I also have a train card and my keys. Since I tend to get dry hands so easily an important and essential thing for me is hand cream. I have the "Vaseline healthy hands + stronger nails" hand cream. I must admit it’s not as moisturizing as I would like it to be, but it’s the only hand cream I have at the moment  - really need to get me a new one, any recommendations? The good thing about this, though is that it smells amazing. One of the most important things I carry with me is my purse. It’s a small brown leather purse and I really like it because of its size. In my purse I have lose change, my credit card, health insurance card, some random gift cards and a lot of old receipts. I also have my iPhone (iPhone 4S, I don’t have a picture of it since I’ve been using it to take those pictures…I really need a real camera :b) and my headphones which I literally don’t go anywhere with out.

In my bag I also have my makeup bag.

If I’m going out on a normal day I just have a few things in it. I have a gold heart shaped mirror – it’s always a good idea to carry a mirror with you! Then I have my MAC pressed powder in the number NC55 and a little brush. I also have bobby pens and some hairbands. My nails tend to break a lot, so I always have a nail file with me just in case I’ll need it.I also always carry a painkiller pill with me if I'll get a headache during the day.  I also have some lip products with me. I have the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour lipstick/lip balm and I just love it! It’s really good for dry lips. 

The last two products I have are two lipsticks. 
NARS Vendanges, MAC Retro

I have my NARS lipstick in the colour Vendanges, which is my favourite lipstick so wherever I’m going I just put that in my bag. The last lipstick I carry with me is a MAC Lipstick in the colour Retro. Retro is in a deep red color. 

Those were some of the things I have been carried around in my bag recently. What are the things you guys just need to have your handbags? J  



  1. I have a small Betsey Johnson satchel, so I don't carry much. I just have my wallet, pantyliners, cellphone, lip products I'm wearing, and a fragrance.


  2. I wanted to do a post like this, I just wasn't sure on how to plan it!
    I love the colours of those lipsticks!
    Great post!
