After doing my post 'Sales Haul' in which I featured my new handbag, I realised I hadn't done a what's in my bag post for a while. I'm not sure why everyone (myself included) loves these types of posts so much but they can be quite interesting - especially for nosey people, which, let's face it, all of us are!
So as you'll probably know from my last post, my bag is from River Island and as I mentioned in that post, I like to start the new year with a new bag, all tidy and organised. So because of that, my bag is nice and organised at the moment, no clutter and no mess! I decided I'd only carry around what I consider 'essentials' so this is what I have.
Macy's Make Up Bag containing:
Collection Eyeliner Pen
Primark Powder Brush (shockingly good)
Avon Mascara
Boux Avenue Mirror
Carmex Lip Balm
Collection Pressed Powder
Topshop 'Flush' Blush
MAC Hue Lipstick
MAC Creme D'Nude
Topshop Secret Admirer Lipstick
Topshop Nevada Lipstick
Topshop Powder Room Lip Pencil
Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
Soap and Glory Hand Maid
Soap and Glory Hand Food
Now, in fairness, this may seem like a lot of make uppy bits and bobs to be carrying around every day and maybe it is. But I like to have everything I need for touch ups during the day because you never know! I also definitely need 7 lip products, purely because I'm the kind of person that changes their lip colour throughout the day. Enough excuses? Let's move on.

Next is my beloved Ted Baker notebook and sparkly pen (not entirely sure where this came from), there's something about pretty stationary that just makes me happy. It might seem a bit excessive to have a designer notebook, probably because it is a bit excessive, but it's beautiful so I can't say I care, (Plus it was on sale!).
Then I have my lovely purse, which I bought in TK Maxx a while ago, I did a longer post on it here, although it's faded a lot since then! I still love it though, it has lots of card slots which I like.  
Then we have my super old well loved Ipod, my keys and my umbrella (always necessary)

So that's all! Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you've done a what's in my bag post, as I love to read them!
