What's In My Handbag!


Exams are over and I finally have time to blog when I want again! Woo!

Sooo, I love reading these types of posts of other peoples blogs, mainly because I'm so nosey! So since I really love reading them I guessed you all would too, and decided to go ahead and do one. My current bag I actually only got a couple of weeks ago and it's not too full of rubbish (yet!). My old bag was on it's last legs and full to the brim with old receipts!

So, my bag itself is from Accessorize and is currently still in stock at £35. It's a really lovely bag that also comes with a shoulder strap which is really good for when I've got a lot of uni books and it gets a bit heavier. It's also got a lovely little phone pocket which is really useless. Link for the bag is here.

Purse - My purse is lovely and big! This is also from Accessorize and I got it in the sale just after Christmas. It's a lot bigger than my previous purse and has plenty of card storage which is really great.

Antihistamines and Painkillers - Haha, I never go anywhere without these! I'm currently having some allergy tests carried out as I have an unknown allergy so keeping these with me is essential other wise it's runny eyes and sneezing (gross). I always like to have painkillers which me too so I'm not caught out by a headache.

iPod Touch - I love having my iPod with me! I have a lovely pink case on it as well as a screen protector as I hate things like these getting scratched. My earphones are Skullcandy which is a brand I've been using for ears. Really good quality and long lasting!

Diary and Notepad - Both essentials for a uni student!

Pens - I don't normally carry this mountain of pens with me but the last couple of weeks have been exams and I sort of panic about pens running out during the exam. Like to make sure I take plenty with me!

Real Techniques Power Brush and L'oreal Powder - Girly essentials for touching up makeup during the day! I love the RT Powder Brush, still super soft after nearly a year of use.

Glasses - I'm short sighted so need to keep my glasses with me especially when I go to uni. I've had these for a couple of years and they're actually childrens glasses (I obviously have an embarrassingly small head!). Hopefully I'm gonna be able to get some more soon!

Aviator Sunglasses - I actually picked these up from H&M when I went shopping at the weekend. I think they were around £5 which is a really good price. I have trouble finding sunglasses small enough but H&M always have really good fitting ones.

A lip collection - I actually didn't realise I had this many lip products on my bag. Three of them are lipbalms, Palmers is my fave! The MUA lipstick can be seen on a review here and the ELF liptint here. The Bourjois lipstick is actually one of my faviourites but since they brought out the Rouge Collection I've had trouble finding it.

Avene Mineral Water Spray - This is an amazing spray! It's got so many uses and the little 50ml can is really handy for keeping in your bag. I use it in the morning to set my makeup and then throughout the day to keep it looking lovely and fresh.

HTC Desire S - Like most people, my phone is always with me. I'm pretty clumsy when it comes to phones so I use a Casemate double case which is a rubber case with a hard outer case. It's never failed me yet!

So, that's what's in my handbag! It's pretty standard but I hoped you enjoyed reading it! If you want a review of any of the products mentioned then let me know!

  1. Lovely post! The bag reminds me of the Zara Office Bag (something like that ahah. I followed via bloglovin :)

    1. Aww thank you! Yeah it's kind of similar. I liked the style of the Zara bags but wanted something a bit different.

  2. Loving your blog following you now!

  3. Your handbag is lovely! I keep wanting to try the Avene water - what's the scent like?



    1. Aww thank you! It has absolutely no scent at all, which is kind of weird and kind of nice. The medium sized bottles are currently on offer in Boots, 2 for £10 :)

  4. I love these posts! Your bag is gorgeous!

    I always find I end up with loads of lipsticks in my bag too!

    Thanks for sending over your link x


  5. I think the Avene water spray is going to be a must for me! I tried a Vichy one today and loved it so much. I also love that you have like 6 lip products in your bag because I ALWAYS have tonnes of them, haha. They just seem to accumulate until I'm like 'enoughs enough' and then before I even know it they're back again xx
