This week I’ll be doing some posts that were requested on my Facebook page – thanks Sarah Maddox for requesting this one! 

My Topshop bag is a bit of a mess at the moment, but when I tipped everything out this is what was inside… 

TECH // 
I can’t be without my iPhone in it’s Kate Spade case, my iPad mini also in a Kate Spade case and my portable charger

I’ve tried to stop lugging around 500 lipsticks so in my current beauty rotation I just have Homeoplasmine, a BECCA blush in ‘Flower Child’ (to use as a mirror), Kiko Luscious Cream lipstick in 502, This Works Deep Sleep Stress Less (for emergency tube situations), Stella fragrance and a hair clip. I also always make sure that in my purse I have my MAC pro card, my Space NK N.Dulge card and my Boots advantage card – essentials! 

An umbrella (because it’s London), my keys, my Miu Miu purse, my oyster card in a Whistles holder, headphones, M&S Cashmere gloves and my recent order of Instagram prints from Firebox

We all love a good nosey into someone’s bag. What random things do you carry around?

    I always carry lip balm, sanitiser and the lipstick I’m currently wearing, along with a pack of tissues/wipes. Everything else depends on my mood! Does all of this stuff fit in your new bag? I’d love to see what you would carry in that. πŸ™‚

    This Kate Spade cover is absolutely beautiful!

  11. I usually keep my phone (addicted to iPhone, too) and the keys in a pocket, so my must have are: water, handkerchieves, lip balm, my purse, a travel size of hand cream, sanitizing tissues, a couple of candies and according to the weather, of course an umbrella.

  12. I love seeing what other people put in their handbag! I always have the usual phone purse diary combo, Then a few lip balms and a tiny mirror in the pocket. The rest of the bag is then usually taken up by random bits that I do not need but can’t part with!

  13. Love that Kate spade case, I wanted to get one for my 4S but I amjust about to swap to s 5 so waiting for that!

  14. I love that Kate Spade phone case! I really want to get one of her purses as my next big purchase (maybe bday coming up…hmmmm, lol)! I usually have more lipsticks the necessary in my purse at any one give time (currently sporting my Aldo bag). What I love the most is my ruby red leather coach clutch that I use as my wallet. My husband bought it for me last Christmas and I absolutely adore it!

    For a beauty blogger, you carry quite fewer things in your bag. But I love it though <3 I always try to keep the amount of products in my bag at the minimum so I wouldn’t take so much time searching something!
