If you have your lights on and your curtains are open, I see that as an open invite to take a peek inside your house. So, if someone wants to let me snoop inside their handbag, then I am always curious to take a peek.
My handbag doesn’t tend to get messy, as I like to switch bags every few days. My current handbag is from Tobi and I am in love. It is such a simple design with a clever trick. When choosing bags, I need a long shoulder strap that is adjustable because I like to wear it as a cross body bag. Not only does this particular bag have a long shoulder strap, but you can pull the strap a certain way and it turns in to a wee backpack. Which is perfect because lately I have been obsessed with backpacks.
I always have the obvious items - house keys, phone, bus pass and purse - but the other items change often. Lately I have bene working with my iPad a lot more, so my laptop tends to live at home now. I recently bought a stylus for it so I can do more sketches on the go. If I don’t have my iPad or laptop, then it is normally a magazine or a book. I need to have some sort of entertainment in my bag. There is always a pair of wireless headphones too, but at the time of the photo they were on charge.
Even in Winter, I like to have a pair of sunglasses as I have an unhealthy obsession with them. At the moment I have an beautiful pair of Marc Jacob sunglasses that live in their little white box. But I won’t lie, I still use the MJ box even if the sunglasses that are inside are NOT Marc Jacobs. I know. The scandal of it all. Shocking.
When it comes to make up, I like to have a few lipstick options and a good hand cream. If I am going to be out and about all day I will take a wee make up bag with the essentials, but for every day use I don’t need to carry that around.
I try my best to keep organised. I check my emails throughout the day, but then I often forget to jot down any important notes or dates. So I have started to take my Blog Diary from Ban.do everywhere I go. I do have another beautiful diary that my friend Amey gifted me, but I use that more for work like and social events with friends.
What’s in your bag?
