I am the worst person when it comes to carrying around stuff in my handbag which I don’t need. I regularly have clear outs and I always feel like the items I carry are important and needed but chances are some stuff I won’t use from one month to the next. In a hope of realizing how much crap I carry around, I thought I’d showcase the contents of my bag to the world.
Now my purse is like a mini handbag on its own because I do keep quite a lot of things in there including receipts for postage items, vouchers, a whole load of cards and of course sometimes a little money. For the past 7 or so year’s I’ve exclusively used Fossil purses as I don’t like zip around purses which rules out a lot of designs and brands, but I love the way the compartments are done on Fossil purses. Although I feel like I’ll want a new one later this year, but I’m not a fan of the current Fossil purses so who knows what I’ll end up with.
I almost always carry around my bullet journal on a daily basis as I can make notes in here, add things to my calendar, mark of things on various trackers and just generally have for all my journaling needs.
To go alongside my bullet journal I carry around a small black moon pencil case from Typo which has all my journaling pens including my various colour Uniball eye pens which are my favourite things to use, and Faber-Castell artist pens which come in a variety of nib sizes depending on what I need. I also keep a couple of normal biros in here as well so that everything is together.
My portable battery charger comes everywhere with me as my phone is so rubbish when it comes to keeping charge, A mini body spray because no one wants to smell anything less than amazing, My sunglasses in this awesome pouch from Accessorize and my Fossil card wallet which holds some of my less used cards which I still want to keep with me just in case.
There’s always at least one tote bag in my handbag, although most of the time it’s two as this means when I am out shopping I always have a bag ready to use. I am awful at remembering to take more out when I do my grocery shopping but I’ve left some in my car now in the hope that I won’t kick myself everytime I get to the supermarket.
Star Wars Bag
This is my bag of small random things which is mainly beauty/ health related including some mini wipes, blotting papers, a lip brush, a mini liquid lipstick, a lipstick, 2 chapsticks, a blusher brush, a mini concealer, a mini perfume, a hair band, a phone cable, a nail file, a pre-workout powder sachet, hayfever relief tablets and various paracetamol tablets.
Other random items
A few beauty bits including a folding hairbrush because my hair can get really knotty, some bobby pins as I am growing my fringe out so sometimes it just needs to be pulled back, My bath and Bodyworks anti bac hand gel because you never know when you’ll need hand gel, and an EOS mint flavoured lip balm.
My work pass in this pretty silver Accessorize holder, My Oyster Card in my Alice in Wonderland holder, My car key card because I always have my handbag with me when I get into the car and of course my house keys which feature a few keyrings including a Deathstar and a Jack Skellington Pop figure.
Within the larger pocket in my bag I have a small notebook, a little coin purse which used to hold any gift cards in just currently just houses some iron on patches I haven’t yet got round to adding to my jackets and a small tin which has a USB pen, a tester perfume and a spare ear plug in it.
