What's in my Handbag?

Hi Guys,

Seeing as Im absolutely smitten with my new bag from Topshop, that I featured in my Topshop Haul. I thought I may as well do a What's in my Handbag Post, I love reading these and I cant believe its taken me this long to do one since I started blogging! Ive been telling myself I'd do one for who knows how long!
The bag that I have is the Topshop Belt Buckle Bag in Rose Gold, any guesses there why I love it so much... It comes in various different options, mainly in the Black leather with Gold hardware, Sadly I can only find it online in the Silver and Black hardware. I have seen it about in stores though! 

It does also come with a shoulder strap, sadly mine doesn't have one as this was a returned bag and whoever returned it never returned the strap! 
 I literally tipped my bag out onto my bed to see what was inside, to say Ive not been using this bag for very long, I still seem to of accumulated quite a bit of stuff...

I have my Ness Houndstooth Purse, which has seen better days but as its fabric and not leather it does bobble quite a bit. But it keeps my ridiculous amount of store points cards in one place so its still going strong! 

I bought a packet of Extra chewing gum the other day as I couldn't find mine, only to now turn my bag out to find the missing packet! But you can never have too many packets of these anyway! I also have a bottle of Juicy Water which I can safely say Im obsessed with, especially the Lemon and Lime flavour, its just lovely and refreshing to have when its warmer outside!

I also randomly found a 50p coin, some McDonalds Monopoly stickers and a card to review Ed's Diner! 

As well as three memory sticks! Which are a essential handbag find for my days in College as I always end up forgetting one! 
 Of course I also have a ridiculous amount of beauty bits just sat in the bottom of my handbag. Plus of course my iPhone 5, to keep me up to date with Twitter!

I always seem to carry around nail polish remover and a nail polish, in the hopes that I'll fix my nails on the go... Which never ever happens but I'll live in hope that one day I'll get round to painting my nails in Barry M Rose Hip. I get a lot of use out of my little Lush Charity Pot however, its teeny weeny and really moisturising as a hand cream!

Im quite upset Lush decided to discontinue their old packaging and some scents including Tuca Tuca!  Of their solid perfumes, as they're fantastic to just chuck in your bag! Im still loving my Zoella Blissful Mistful though too. 

I think its pretty much routine to have a million hair grips just sat in the bottom of your bag, hoping one day they'll be rediscovered! As well as always carrying a couple of hair bobbles and its now a staple to carry my Tangle Teezer with my at all times because my hair is so long!

Finally I have my trusty MAC Fix+ Powder. I think we all probably have a shameful amount of lipsticks in our bags, when I swapped over from my old bag to this one I had 12!! Now I have downsized and currently only carry my favourite nude lip duo from Illamasqua in Glamore Lipstick in Rosepout with Sheer Lipgloss in Opulent. My bright lip options are from MAC in Chatterbox, Sweet & Sour and Girl About Town!

Just looking at all this makes me realise I probably need to do another downsize on the contents of my bag...

  1. Oh wow I love that bag! I definitely agree with the bobby pins left lying at the bottom of your bag, I swear I have about 50 just floating around! You'll definitely be prepared for anything with all that with you, your bag must weigh a ton haha! x

    Love Vicki |

  4. I love these posts, I somehow find them really interesting! And I love your bag, it's gorgeous! I have so many things in my bag, it's crazy and I really want to do a post like this one, but then I have to actually empty the bag haha.

  6. Your handbag basically looks identical to mine, I have so many lip products, a mirror, deodorant, everything I swear I am going to need a suitcase the way I'm going!

    Love, Amie.<3

  7. Your handbag is gorgeous! I wish the Topshop close to me wasn't small so I would actually find products I want. For perfume, I prefer keeping the roller one because I don't need to worry too much about those breaking in my purse. It was nice chatting with you at the #bbloggers chat!
