Whats In My Bag!


Before I started blogging I would sit and watch all different youtubers tell me whats in their bags and I've always wanted to do one of my own. I just found it so interesting to see what people carry on them in their daily life and what key products they can't leave the house without. Here I will show you what is in my bag (I cleaned it out specifically for this post!)


The Bag
The bag that im using at the moment is a Ralph Lauren Orange Laser Cut out tote bag, I actually couldn't find this bag on the website (I've had it for a while) but I found one very similar here. I love this bag, its small enough that you dont fill too much into it and it also fits everything that you need. The colour is actually my favourite part of the bag, it doesn't go with every outfit because of its vibrant orange colour. This bag also has a smaller pouch inside which is detachable and can be used for storing cards  or any smaller items you need to put into the bag. The only drawback about this bag is that it doesn't have a zip or a button to keep it closed but if your not over loading the bag it doesn't affect it too much. 




The Purse 
The purse I've been using recently is a Versace Jeans Blue Zip Around purse which I got for my birthday. I've also had this purse for a while so I found it on Ebay here. This purse doesn't really match my bag but I love it and it fits everything I need so I've been using it for months. Inside the purse you can fit 8 cards (mostly store points cards), There's a zip in the middle for change and 3 main compartments for cash or receipts. I've had purses in the past that are just too small but this one fits everything I need as well as all the receipts I forget to throw away. 




The Makeup Bag
This is only a small edited version of my makeup bag that I take to work everyday. I usually change up my makeup bag pretty often and now that the weather is a lot hotter I just take my Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Powder in Latte, I love to use this as a base instead of liquid foundation because it just feels like your not wearing any makeup and also add enough coverage that I like which is medium - full coverage. The other powder that I have in my makeup bag which is the Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation in Medium, I mainly use this powder just to matte my skin if im getting a bit shiny (I actually got this powder from Tk Maxx for just £7.99, perfect for bargains on high end brands).  I also carry my lip product that I have been using for the day, I usually wear a different lip colour each day but the one in my bag today is the Sleek Lip Shot which is a highly pigmented lip gloss that you can find in my Highstreet Makeup Haul. The last item I have in my makeup bag is my Real Techniques Powder Brush which I cannot live without! Click here to see my full post on Whats In My Everyday Makeup Bag



Sunglasses 
While writing this post it is currently 25 degrees and it is essential that you bring your sunglasses with you everywhere that you go because its so bright out. Recently I did a post on some Accessories that I purchased from Primark and these sunglasses were one of my purchases. These glasses were only £2 and are perfect for this really sunny weather because the lenses are quite dark. The design is really nice with a gold bar at the top which I've been seeing a lot this summer and these glasses are also really comfortable to wear.  

Headphones 
I cannot go anywhere without my headphones, even if its just a small trip they are always in my bag. I have an IPhone 7 so these headphones came with it (don't get me started on the silly design of these). 

Products 
Soap & Glory Hand Maid Antibacterial Gel 
£2.50
I think I've spoken about this product before on my blog and I absolutely love it, I use it multiple times a day because I really am a germ freak! I have tried all different antibacterial gels before but have only repurchased this one because it smells so amazing and doesn't have a clinical smell like other gels I've tried. This gel also sinks into the skin really quickly and doesn't dry out the skin. 

Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream - Crush scent 
£2.50 
Recently I signed up to be a part of #babesofglory with Soap & Glory and was very kindly gifted this Hand Food Hand Cream in Crush. I have tried the original scent which I loved but this one is so fresh and citrusy that I also love it. This cream has a non-greasy formula so it doesn't make your hands feel to slippery or greasy once applied. It also soaks into the skin quickly leaving your hands hydrated. 

Malibu Lip Care Lip Balm - Strawberry Scent 
£2.99 for a set of 3
I always have to carry a lip balm in my bag just encase of dry lip emergencies. I have been using Malibu lip balms for years now and love how soft they make my lips, Sometimes I even like to wear this lip balm under liquid lipsticks or matte lip products. I have been loving the Strawberry scent recently.

Im always switching up products and items in my bag but a few of these are my holy grail items that I need daily. What products do you need in your bag daily?

  5. I love watching what's in my bag videos, too! This was really fun to read, and I love that red bag, it's so cute! We actually carry around a lot of the same things - I can't leave the house without my hand sanitiser and sunglasses (even if it's a rainy day!). Another essential is the pocket sized foldable hairbrush by Denman. So nifty and handy!

  11. I love these posts! I really like it when bags come with a smaller detachable pouch too. I try not to carry too much makeup in my bag, usually just a compact and some lipstick (or 10 because I forget to empty them). I always carry anti-bacterial gel and some hand cream too x
