Today I carry on with my Bloggers and Bags series, where all my fave bloggers will brace it all and show us the contents of their handbags. Its been months since I last did a Bloggers ans Bags series post but in the meanwhile I’ve been reading loads of new blogs and thought I’d carry on with it
and because I’m nosey and wanted you darlings to know about all the fab blogs out there but Kicking things off, I have Laura from Whimsy Is Forever. Laura blogs about Fashion, Beauty, Music and her adventures in and around Stellenbosch so be sure to check her blog out!
My current favourite handbag is this neutral beauty from Woolworths. I like that it is structured but still just a bit casual, making it a perfect anytime bag, be it for work or weekend! It’s also big enough to just contain the stuff I haul around every day. I usually use the front pouch for my phone, keys and lens cleaning cloth.In the one half:
1 – Swallow-print mini umbrella for sudden downpours (from Woolworths)
2 – iPad (mint quilted cover from Typo) – I’ve really come to rely on this baby!
3 – ID book
4 – Typo pencil bag – with medication, plus small items such as bobby pins and hair ties
5 – Shorthand notebook
6 – Pencil, pen, marker, iPad stylusIn the other half:
7 – Small collection of choccies from my morning coffee – for when the choclate cravings hit!
8 – Black and tan bow wallet (from Mr Price)
9 – USB flash drives
10 – iPod classic
11 – Compact mirror (from Mr Price)
12 – Tissues
13 – Huge black sunnies (from Edgars)
14 – Fragrance samples
15 – Nail polish + calcium hardening gel – for emergency touch-ups or repairs
16 – Spearmint gum (has to be spearmint or I can’t stand it)
17 – An assortment of makeup from the week. I usually have the Piz Buin lip balm and a black eyeliner. I normally chuck in that day’s lipgloss or lipstick, and empty once a week. Currently, I have in my bag Rimmel Apocalips in Galaxy, Inglot Sleeks Creme in 98, Stila Lip Glaze in Vanilla and Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink.
18 – Estee Lauder Delux All-Over Face Compact – A great compact with three of the fantastic E.L. Signature Silky Powder Blushes plus the Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer. Fabulous for on-the-go touch-ups.
19 – Stila Sheer Pressed Powder in Light
20 – Polytop vial – no idea why this was in here and not in the lab, whoops!
21 – Student card
Eek, now that I lay it all out, that’s a lot of stuff to carry around every day! Thank you Tasneem for letting me guest blog and show all your lovely readers what’s in my bag J
