What's In Your Handbag?

One of my favourite blogs at the mo is Elsiecake's A Beautiful Mess. She recently shared the contents of her handbag with her readers, and being a nosey cow I loved it. I want to know what E V E R Y O N E has in their bags - so prepare yourselves for a long tag list once I've emptied mine for you! (if you're not there and you want to be, let me know!)

Introducing my beloved and well used Mulberry Bayswater. Himself bought me this for my 30th birthday; yes I was very impressed and he got a LOT of brownie points!

Its bloody huge and everyone calls it my Mary Poppins bag because of the monumental amount of crap I always seem to carry around in it.

Soooo.... whats inside it then, I hear you ask.

1. My pink notebook - used daily for scribbling lists and blog ideas and SSSS orders down.

2. My lovely (and ancient) brown leather Filofax. No matter how much I try to embrace the modern, digital age, I just can't be persuaded to give it up. It has all my diary entries in it, and all my addresses. I wouldn't be able to function without it.

3. In complete contrast - my iPhone. Another thing I couldn't function without. It has all my work stored on there, and shortcuts to all the blogs I regularly read. Not only that but I have a serious amount of photography apps on there which I would miss like anything if I suddenly became iPhone-less.

4. My pretty Cath Kidston make up bag - containing some Benefit Bad Gal mascara and black kohl pencil and No 7 Translucent Powder. Thats my daytime make up pretty much sorted these days.

5. Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes. Nuff said.

6. My purse - a recent purchase from Accessorize. Its not got any money in it but it does have my fully loaded Starbucks card and oyster!

7. Some Bath & Body Works Island Nectar PocketBac. England seriously needs a Bath & Body Works store. Whenever I go to America I stock up and buy silly amounts. I'm a wee bit obsessed with antibacterial hand sanitiser but the regular stuff you get over here smells of vodka. This smells bloody lovely. Think nectarines and lillies. They do antibacterial hand cream in the same scents. Genius.

8. Not one, but TWO pairs of Raybans. My aviators and my wayfarers. Because I can never decide which one I want to wear. And sometimes I change my mind. You can never have too many pairs of sunglasses in your handbag!

9. A narabug. Of course! Doesn't everyone have one in their handbag?

10. My iPhone earphones. For those long walks when (if) madam falls asleep. Or for when I'm out and about on my own generally. I panic whenever I leave my earphones at home. Travelling without music is torture.

11. Keys. These are usually lost so it was quite a treat to find them in my handbag, where they are supposed to be, for once!

So there you have it. The contents of my handbag! Now... whats in yours?


  1. I sooo agree on Bath and Body Works - I love them!! Now I don't really have a handbag but I'll blog all about it x

  2. Fab post, I think that I would be embarrassed sharing the contents of my handbag with you all. However do bear with me and I will give it a go x

  3. Ahh, Thanku for the prompt:) ..even though it is the dreaded *handbag* one!(I have bag inadequacy issues ;D ) yours is just beautiful! I will defo post mine, although it is not quite so pretty I'm afraid ;D x
