What is in my handbag

What is in my bag?!

I have to start by saying that I am obsessed with this bag!! I love how chic it looks, it feels like the type of bag a grown up would own, i'm obsessed!! I picked it up around 6  months ago from Zara at £39.99 (what a bargain!!) for some crazy reason I have only just started using it in the last couple of weeks.



The bag
As I mentioned my bag is from Zara though sadly I don't believe it is available anymore. But I've found some similar from asos here and here.


What's inside
I have aways been the type of person who carries around way to much in their bag, so recently I have defiantly started to get a lot better at cleaning my bag out and only packing what I really need. At the moment my essentials have been:

  • My Purse - My purse is from &other stories (find in black here
  • Bottle of Water - I drink a lot of water so their is always a bottle in my handbag.
  • Tangle Teezer - Literally the best hair brush EVER!! I'm sure you will all agree with me?!
  • Body Spray - Currently  I am loving the Victoria Secret spray in Love Spell 
  • A Good Book -  Lately I have been carrying a book around with me, now this isn't always in my bag but if I know I am going to be on the train for a long period of time then I like to occupy that time by reading a book, it makes a long journey fly by. I have just started to read 'girl boss' by Sophia Amoruso the (founder of Nasty Gal) and am currently loving it, I would defiantly recommend this book to everybody and anybody.
  • My Planner/ Diary- Recently I bought this planner from Urban Outfitter (buy here) and I have been using it all of the time, I feel I get so much more done when I can wright down everything I need to do and than tick it off.
  • Makeup Bag- My makeup bag is from Ted Baker and is so so cute!!
  • Alien Wallet - How adorable is this!!! I picked it up from Brandy Melville, and use it to keep essentials like, plasters, ibuprofen, an emergency £5 note and some gum (which are all things I find my self reaching for regularly)




So now you know what is in my bag, let me know what essentials you carry around in your bag down below.
