I suppose I should start with what handbag I am currently using. I have the Michael Kors Jet Set tote in white. My brother and his wife bought this for me from New York on their honeymoon. I believe I have mentioned this before as done a whats in my bag last year. I also have this bag in black but it is slightly bigger.
I always have my purse in my bag for those random Boots trips I love to make. Nothing too amazing.. it’s a Michael Kors purse that I got for Christmas a few years ago. I look after my bags and purse so they last a long time. I don’t have loads of bags or purses as these are really sentimental.
I have a clear plastic Benefit make up bag that I keep all my essentials in. I like them in this bag so when I change bags or need anything it is all in one place.
In this bag I keep the following….
Pens, a plaster, painkillers, sickness bands (random I know), a tampon, an earl grey tea bag… absolute essential, a £1 coin for a trolley or parking, headphones and a little plastic envelope with some flowers that Jacob picked for me.
Also in the bag I keep some make up etc;
I keep what I feel are essentials or top ups if I need them throughout the day. A Ralph Lauren roll on perfume, Benebalm, eye drops, a fold away hairbrush, hair bands, hand gel, a face mist, 2 nail files, eyebrow pencil, no stress rollerball, eyebrow gel, a mini mascara, a plumping lipgloss, Sleek face form palette, a blush brush and eye blending brush, concealer, Benetint, mini too faced lip stick in Dolly and the macaroon lipbalm.
I see all these as essentials!! I probably should downsize what I have in my bag but I bet as soon as I take anything out I will need it haha.
I also had receipts… chocolate wrappers and an empty water bottle in my bag… but I didn’t feel like taking a photo of those haha!
Am I the only one with so many “essentials”? XO
