Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Oh wait, it’s just another till receipt

I asked you guys across my social media about what you’s wanted to see here and the most popular choice was a what’s in my bag so here it is.

I thought if i’m going to do a what’s in my bag then it needs to be my everyday bag, the one bag that never gets cleared out and is like a bottomless pit. Like seriously, I can drop some loose change or bobby pins into the bottom of my bag and they're gone. Vanished. Away to ‘a place called here’ never to be seen again. It’s my burgundy Michael Kors Travel bag. It is the perfect size with three main compartments and ticket pouches in the sides with a documents holder in also. It is ideal for a day to day bag as I can chuck everything in it and somehow still have space for more.




Like everyone I have wayward receipts and unexplained crumbs in the bottom of my bag. I do clean them out often, I promise but in general my bag is usually fairly clutter free, well on a Monday anyway. Here’s a little peek of what’s currently in there…

Laptop

I like to keep my laptop in my bag when I go out so that if i’m on a longer train journey or stop at Starbucks for a coffee I can check emails and do a little blogging, and maybe a little shopping but shhh that’s a secret. It is a travel essential.

Phone and Keys

Is an explanation necessary? 

Paperback

I always, always keep a book in my bag, there’s always  time or place to be reading, even if it’s just to escape reality for a few minutes. My current read is The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory (I have a little bit of an obsession with Mary Queen of Scots).

Makeup Bag

In here is my essential makeup pieces as well as the odd glittery eyeshadow or bright lipstick that’s not quite made it back to my room after a night out. Rather that tell you everything you’d find in here, you can check out my daily essentials HERE as no-one wants to read a super long description of all the little things in my makeup bag. There is a few extra things I found in my bag when writing this that aren’t usually there. These are some new Barry M nail polishes in shades 20 and 35 which are infused with coconut water an oil which got an A+ from me. Coconut is my fave! I also found a Barry M Afterglow Bronzer which cam free with the nail polish but I have yet to try it, i’ll let you know how it is once I do.

Comb, Kirbies and Hair Things

Always, in case of any hair emergencies.

Rayban Aviators

These are a fairly new purchase but with the unexpected Scottish sunshine have become a staple in my bag. That and they are fabulous, they are the perfect accessory and they have a bluey green lens which remind me of summer.

Journal

I usually take my journal if I'm out an about, well i say journal, it’s more of a notebook for jotting down ideas, things i’ve seen or heard. Anything of particular interest really, this way when I’m home I can look it up, write or whatever course of action is needed. Generally this consists of looking at my loopy scrawl for a while trying to work out what was so interesting about what’s written on the paper. My current one is this beautiful purple and silver journal that I got on a trip to Edinburgh Castle. It took me a while before I started using, as it’s far too pretty to use. 

Apple Earphones

They came with my phone. I like them. Earphones are an essential.


Purse

I’m gonna need money at some point…



I hope you’ve enjoyed a peek inside my bag. I’d love to know what your bag essentials are, let me know below :)

    1. If I hadn't smashed my screen on my iPad it would probably be in there too :) Each tool has a different use so it's good to have all things readily available x

  2. Wow, you certainly do carry a lot! I'm not sure I could ever bring my laptop with me. I'd hate to lug that around.

    1. It is rather a lot haha, but honestly my laptop is really light so you don't really notice it too much when carrying it about :)x

  3. I love seeing posts like this! My bag contents sound very similar to yours though. I had to empty it last week because it was getting super heavy... looked like I was carrying around excessive makeup haha (over 14 lipsticks and 6 nailpolishes) whooops

    1. Sounds a lot like me haha, at one point I had a makeup bag full of stuff and endless lipsticks in the bottom of my bag i'd forgotten about. It was amazing how light it felt after a good clear out :) but hey, can there ever be too many lipsticks/nail polishes haha?x

  4. Ah, Michael Kors! I currently am carrying a MK bag as well along with a wallet that looks just like yours, but it's blue and I love it! And I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who carries nail polish with them. :)

  10. Your bag not only looks nice on the outside but it has lots of fun stuff in it too! Careful that you don't hurt your shoulders and back from the weight though!

  13. Oh my gosh so true about bottomless pit everyday bags! Doesn't it get super heavy with the laptop though? I was so relieved when carrying my laptop around was not a necessity anymore.
