I've got a major thing for handbags, and it's been a really long time since I invested in a new one which has me lemming a little gander around online...to stop myself from doing that and to keep myself in saving mode I thought I'd throw up my very first 'what's in my handbag' post! I love taking a peek into what others tote around with them, and although I adore large handbags a recent bout of back problems has made me switch to this old and very loved faux-leather crossbody that fits in (most of) the everyday essentials. I still can't help but stuff it to the brim and I'm known for carrying far too many lip choices around, but the reduced weight is definitely a plus for my health right now.The usual suspects reside inside - a cheap pair of sunglasses, a coin purse from Cotton On where I keep my main cards and cash and my in-need-of-an-update iPhone.
This is a pretty standard lot for me, but generally accompanied by receipts and a snack which is usually some cheese and cracker Dippits or a muesli/nut bar. I keep all of my loyalty and gift cards in the zip compartment of the bag alongside my work badge, and the latest addition is the Nando's card which was spurred on by Sarah Cooks post! Two of the Rimmel lipliners were only purchased the night before I took this shot (at Chemist Warehouse for half price!) and the rest of the lip products are pretty much always in there as an option. The Laura Mercier 'Sweetheart' gloss and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 'Boy' are part of my current project so I'm trying to remind myself to use them over all others until they're gone!
If only I had a Mary Poppin's bag that could fit my giant water bottle and a novel inside without adding extra weight to the handbag...#handbaggoals
How much do you keep inside your handbag?
