What's In My Bag

These types of posts are a classic. Everyone's got that nosy side to them and I must admit, I love reading posts like these. Since I've moved to university I've found that I carry around way more things in my bag than I did 3 years ago (I actually can't believe that I've been blogging on and off for around 3 years...what), so I thought I'd give you an update into what I carry in my Colette Hayman handbag.

Purse: For ages I was carrying around a battered purse which was full to the brim with receipts and loose change. Last month my boyfriend decided enough was enough and bought me a new Fiorelli one, which I've promised not to overfill! What I love about this purse is that it has a little pouch at the back so I can put my most used cards in there which makes it easier to get out when paying. Anything for a little bit of convenience. 

Planner and Pen: I've never known my life to be so hectic. I have a constant to-do list in between going to uni, managing deadlines, going to work and trying to keep on top of blogging! There's always something popping up in my head that I've forgotten to do, so I carry my planner around with me everywhere. I use the CGD planner and honestly, it has changed my life. There is a whole page dedicated to tasks for the day and then space for you to plan out meals, expenses, shopping lists, exercise, notes and even how much water intake you're getting a day! It's so useful to have literally everything in one handy, aesthetically pleasing book. 

Keys: Pretty self explanatory. I don't want to be locked out of my house. 

Tissues and Tablets: I don't know whats going on with my immune system this year but it seems like since we've jumped into 2019 my body's been going into meltdown with all sorts of problems from the flu to tonsillitis to chest infections! Carrying tissues and tablets around is a must for this part of the year.

Lip Salve and Hand Cream: The Winter is havoc for making my skin dry. To be honest I carry lip salve around with me all year round because I'm obsessed with it and I am constantly applying it to my lips, but I only carry round hand cream with me in the Winter. I am currently using L'Occitane Intensive Hand Balm for very dry skin. This stuff is amazing for moisturising, however it does smell like baby wipes which I'm not too keen on... At 150ml this product is sure to last me all Winter and even going into Spring, so I always have it on me.

Umbrella: I live in Manchester and it's Winter. Do I need to say any more?

Sunglasses: Quite a contradiction to the umbrella, but with the weather the UK has had the past month it can be torrential rain one second and blinding sun the next. I'm not complaining though, I don't mind a 12 month Summer...

Phone and Headphones: Obviously I have my phone glued to my side 24/7 like most other people. Since I travel to work, uni, London and abroad a lot I always make sure that I have at least 2 pairs of headphones with me at all times, just in case one pair breaks or I forget to bring some with me. But I'm not yet stunting with Airpods...

Chewing Gum: I like to eat a lot, and no one likes bad breath. 

What do you carry in your bag?


  1. I love these posts, they truly are a classic. I never leave my house without my phone, some lip balm, cash and earphones. Those are the four things that I NEED around me, at all times, haha. Great post!

  2. So many similar items to my own bag. Essentials for me are lip balm and hand cream!
