What's in my Handbag?

Like so many other women, I am absolutely obsessed with handbags. If I had enough money (and room) I would buy so many and put them in one of those amazing closets that some ladies have. Goals ladies! Goals! One of my favourite types of posts along with handbag collections are What's in my Handbag blogs and vlogs. I obviously thought it then made perfect sense to do one myself and with my handbag of the moment.

I got this gorgeous Mulberry Handbag from my wonderful Nanny (as in Nan/Gran) for my Birthday last month.  This is their small Bayswater bag and is in the colour of the spring season which is of course pink. I actually can't get enough of this bag and it was such a wonderful Birthday surprise. I am not someone who owns a lot of expensive handbags so I will be looking after this one so so carefully. This is the bag that I am using most right now and despite it being dubbed as 'small' I can fit a surprising amount inside.

One of the main things that I make sure I have in my bag- surprisingly before a lot else, is my current read. I have a book on the go all the time and I get so annoyed with myself when I forget it. If I am on a train especially and I don't have my book with me, I literally don't know what to do with myself. I am definitely a paperback lover through and through so even though Kindle's are more convenient, I will always choose a paperback and put it in my bag.

I also always make sure I have a notebook to hand as I always get inspiration for things when I'm out and about and like to write them down.

Other things I take with me are my diary, purse and makeup bag essentials. I constantly need my diary with me as I get quite a lot of spontaneous plans thrown my way, so I need to keep track and also check what I'm doing and that I'm not double booking myself. I am in love with my kikki-K diary. If you love stationary, check them out, they do so many gorgeous products. I also take part in blog tours for books so I always need to make sure that I am free to post on that day.

I of course always have my purse with me as I always need money and my cards to hand. I am loving the monogram theme of purses recently, but although it says money bags- I sadly don't live up to this name. I also take my gorgeous Cath Kidston and Winnie the Pooh makeup case which I keep my cherry shine Nivea lipbalm in as my lips are always getting chapped. I also have my Estee Lauder pressed powder to take away the shine on my face throughout the day, along with carex antibacterial hand wash for when I am out an about and there's no soap to hand and a hair-tie as it's always handy to have when I want to get my hair out the way.

Lastly I of course have my phone, which I am addicted to. I can't not have my phone with me to check messages and social media. My current phone case is this gorgeous Disney animations collection. I think it's so cute. I also need my glasses with me when I am at work as the computer screen I look at daily has affected my eyesight. I don't need to wear them all the time, just when I'm looking at my computer.

There concludes what I have in my handbag this month. My bag and accessories are constantly changing, so expect another post soon. Please do also link me if you have done a similar post.


  1. I love it! I love the bag too-I have too many handbags but it's such a faff to change them over. I think I'd need to clear mine of rubbish before doing this type of post but could make for an interesting post/video...

    1. I have literally wanted to do one for ages! And finally got round to it. I am forever changing my bags at the minute so I always manage to tidy them up. Please let me know if you do do one as I would love to see :)

  2. Oh gosh I absolutely LOVE this post and your photos are sooo gorgeous <3

    1. Yay thank you so so much! I am actually quite proud of these ones! <3
