Tag | Whats in my bag?

Wednesday, 8 May 2013

Hi Ladies! Today I thought I would do a 'Whats in my bag?' post, I personally love reading these just because it gives me a chance to be a bit nosy! I know some of you wanted to see a tanning post next but all of my tanning products need time to develop and I want to see how they all fade off so I can compare them so that one might be a while in the making. 

Okay, so I got this bag as a gift for Christmas, its by Dior and I'm not sure but I think its called the Lady Dior bag, mine is in the smaller size and I also have the baby pink version so I can switch bags based on what I'm wearing, I love this bag it goes with pretty much anything and I really like structured bags like this one, although it is a bit small sometimes. 

I think I pretty much carry around standard things in my bag and there isn't very much that's special in there so I hope this post isn't too boring for you! I got my purse from Primark because I needed a bigger purse and I didn't really have enough money at the time to buy a nice one, I have a Radley one which I love but it isn't big enough for all of my cards that I've got now but I would love a Ted Baker purse. 

I carry a little deodorant with me just in case I ever need it, I got one of those new compressed ones from Vaseline because I thought it would fit into my bag nicely and not be too heavy to carry around all day. My tissues are from the Humble Vintage I think, my mum got them for me in case I cried on my first day at my new job, I'm sure everyone will be really nice though! I just think they're a really cute design and they fold up really small and slim so they're perfect for carrying around. 

I always take my phone and iPod with me because I like to listen to music whenever I'm walking to Uni or work to make the time pass quicker. I have a Blackberry Curve 9360 which is nothing special and I now really want an iPhone, and I have an iPod touch which I love! It's great because it means I can pretty much do whatever I could with an iPhone, but I really need to get a phone and iPod case so I don't keep damaging them! 

I always take my umbrella because the English weather is so unpredictable and it's always raining! Its from Moschino and is pink with a pretty red rose design, I really like it because its really sturdy and doesn't blow inside out too much and has an automatic open and close which is really useful if you have your hands full. I actually got it in TK Maxx for £16 down from over £60 so I was happy with that bargain! 

I got my keys cut to have a Hello Kitty design on them which I think is so cute, all of my housemates have exactly the same set of keys so I thought it would be a good way to tell which ones were mine. The shoe key ring is from Accessorize and the lucky chip keyring was a gift from a friend at Uni. 

My little make up bag which I carry around in my handbag was a present I got for Christmas and I love it. Its from Cath Kidston, I love most of the things from there but the roses patterns are definitely my favorite  Also it feels kind of plasticy so I can just wipe it down if it gets any make up on it. In there I have a YSL mirror which I got free when I bought some foundation, a No7 eyeshadow in a kind of pink/neutral shade, Jo Malone 'Wild Bluebell' fragrance sample which I absolutely love - I really want the full size bottle now!, Benefit BadGal lash in a sample size, Nivea pearly shine, mini Clinique make up brushes which I got as part of a free gift, 2 Clinique lipglosses which are actually really long lasting in sample sizes, and a small Dermalogica 'Clean Start' lipgloss which I got as part of a gift set. 

Most of my make up which I carry around I got free or are sample sizes because I find them easier to carry around and then I don't panic about losing my best make up! Do you carry around anything similar?

Also, while I've got you here, it would mean so much for me if you would nominate Lipgloss and Lashes for 'Best new beauty blog' in the Cosmo Blog Awards, and let me know if you do so I can thank you!

  6. I love Cath Kidston, especially the floral print, I really want a larger make up bag because my make up collection is getting a little too big to fit into my make up case now! I'm thinking of organising it and keeping my everyday make up in a bag. I know I love the Ted Baker purses, I think they look so classy in black or nude but theyre not cheap! xx
