My handbag is filled with all the knickknacks that I need on a daily basis and I just couldn't manage without it.
Also, I think the contents of someones bag says alot about them!!!! And looking at mine....
I think it says I'm a little bit of a makeup addict - but then again you all knew that anyway!!!
So my bag of choice is a Michael Kors Jet Set Top Zip Saffiano Leather Tote.
(A massive thanks to my gorgeous husband for buying it for me).
Car Keys, iPhone & Charger - Yes my iPhone has sellotape on it...I keep dropping it and the screen has completely detached itself from the rest of the phone. I'm due an upgrade soon so I just have to wait a few more weeks!!!! I always carry a charger because any of you who own an iPhone know the battery life is just terrible. If you use it for any length of time at all it will just die. And that is not good news especially for a blogger (and self confessed phone addict).
I love the Soap & Glory Hand Sanitizer cause it smells lovely and doesn't leave your hands sticky.
I go through packets and packets of wet wipes because I'm always swatching makeup on the back of my hands so I need to have something to remove it. Otherwise I manage to get it all over my clothes (especially when I am wearing white!!!).
Hair Bobbins, Gum, Breath Spray, Nail File & Safety Pins - more must haves that don't take up much room and are easy to carry around. How cute is the breath spray. It's by a brand called Hello and I just loved the packaging.
My business card holder was a gift from my lovely friend Lorraine and I think it's super cute.
The Beutifi.com voucher I got at our last ITWBN meetup but haven't had a chance to use it yet. I love the idea behind this website - it lets you "search, browse & book 1000's of salons & freelance beauty professional near you" all with the click of a button. Brilliant if you are travelling to a strange town for a wedding or event and don't know the local salons. Saves alot of time and hassle.
Roscommon Rose of Tralee Gala Ball Tickets - Cannot wait for this event in April. I am chairperson of our local festival here in Castlerea and every year we put forward a young lady for the Roscommon Rose of Tralee Selection. We get all dressed up and enjoy a fabulous night out.
Supplements/Tablets - I am currently taking CoQ30 for energy and Chromium which is supposed to reduce sugar craving. I always carry some form of painkiller (ibuprofen/paracetamol), Motilium for an upset tummy and I have Otrivine Nasal spray for a blocked nose. So nothing really exciting on the drugs front.
Dove Deodorant - Hate being sweaty!
Bourjois Healthy Mix Pressed Powder - This is a great compact as it is really slim and has a big mirror.
Nivea Lip Butter - Blueberry (I actually have all the flavours but keep losing them)
MAC Select Cover Up Concealer in NW20 - Great coverage without looking too heavy.
IsaDora All Day Long Last Mascara* - Black (sample size)
The Body Shop Coconut Hand Cream - This just smells AMAZING
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Liner in Pillow Talk - Perfect Nude shade
IsaDora Powder Brush*
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lip Balm
Dior Lip Glow & Dior Lip Balm - There is nothing worse than having chapped sore lips so that's why I always carry at least 3 different lip balms with me.
Perfume - I decant into this handy Travalo which is the perfect handbag/travel size.Currently inside is one of my all time favourite perfumes Chanel Chance.
Jeez I can fit quite alot into a small bag!!!!!!
Or what else do you think I should add?
Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading.
As always....Be Happy
