In my ole lady handbag...

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Ive wanted to do an 'in my bag' post for awhile, I did one last year when I first started blogging properly and I know what I carry round now is completely different to back then.. So after giving my bag a little tidying, getting rid of the 99 receipts and sweetie wrappers..yup im a bag hoarder..every girl has to have sweets her handbag though, am I right!?

I dont change my bag that often although Im trying to make an effort too..
so the bag im currently carrying round is this 'ole ladybag' as i call it..from asos.
paperchase diary, billybag leather wallet, crown and glory hair pins, diy
heart brooch.
collection 17 balmy beige lipstick..lipstick still kinda daunts me I dunno why so
I love this neutral shade..
My handy netbook that snuggly fits in my bag, great for blogging on the go,
harrods spotty coin purse gift from jo.
collection 17 hot chilli lipstick, lemon lipbalm, grey stone ring.
I use a dslr for my outfit posts but always carry this little compact around
just incase..

other random items: Burts bees hand salve, Echinaforce herbal tonic,
half a packet of softmints..

I always seem to have half a packet of softmints and never a whole packet...I blame mint munching Dave ;)

So there you go.. thats what I carry around with me everyday..not that exciting yet somehow I cant live without these things!
