This is a post I have been planning for the longest time. For some reason I always seems to move it down my to do list. So Polos getting in touch wanting to collaborate means I finally have my reason to post! Today I am going to share what’s inside my bag. This is my every day bag and things that I carry around everywhere with me on a day to day basis.
What’s inside my bag – My bag
I love looking at designer bags and admiring the fancy bags when I’m out shopping. But carrying one around on a daily basis just isn’t “me”. I like bags I can sling over my shoulder or across my body and not think about whilst I’m out. SO my day to day bag is an across shoulder bag.
It is a gorgeous light brown colour leather and feels so soft. I love the size of it as I can easily fit everything in. If I’m at a blogging event I can fit my DSLR in too. My bag is a good few years old now but is still up to the job and I’m loving the worn leather look it’s developing. It is actually from BHS (and caught my eye as I was rushing through the store to the car park one day) so it wasn’t super cheap but it also wasn’t too expensive either.
What’s inside my bag – The contents
So I don’t think I carry around too much around with me day to day!
Firstly my purse. This was a gift from a friend and I really love it. It’s a great size and fits all my money, cards and loyalty cards. Does any one else seem to have hundreds of those?
Next is my planner. This literally comes everywhere with me as it runs my life. Inside I have my diary and a notepad for jotting down the random things that pop in to my head through the day. This is a personal size planner from Paperchase.
The next items inside my bag are Polo pots. These new Polo pots are perfect for keeping in your bag. They are really sturdy so protect the Polos and save any minty crumbs in the bottom of the bag. Each pot has 44 of the iconic mints with a hole. Even better is the fact these polos are sugar free, great if you are watching the calories! There is always mints in my bag as they are great to freshen your mouth after eating or drinking,
I also have a few beauty essentials inside my bag. I always have a bottle of perfume, this one is from Next. There is a little compact mirror, perfect for spot checking what I look like through the day. A little pot of lip balm is always in my bag, I suffer terribly with sore lips especially this time of year. I keep a tube of BB cream for quickly touching up my make up if I need to. This one from the Body Shop is my absolute favourite as it adapts to your skin tone so suits me all year round. FInally I keep a tube of my favourite concealer, Collection Lasting Perfection .
I always try to carry some healthy snacks around with me to save me reaching for anything naughty whilst I am out and about. These are my favourite snacks at the moment.
And finally a pair of sunglasses, even though we’re into Autumn now I still sometimes need them for driving, and my glasses. If they are not on my face I keep them in my bag otherwise I can never find where I put them.
What do you think of what’s inside my bag? What do you carry round with you day to day? And I love to know what your bag is like?
