What's In My Bag!*

16/06/2016





Now that I have finished school I decided to treat myself to a new handbag which of course was completely necessary if you ask me. I picked up this gorgeous mini tote from Next  a few weeks ago because the colour of it is gorgeous! It also has scallops along the front which adds to the detail. Inside the bag there is two open topped pockets which I like to store my house keys in and my phone charger, which I take everywhere!And also a zipped pocket which I hardly use!


Normally I have my phone on the top of my bag which is the iPhone 6s in gold, which I never leave anywhere. The case I have on is from Coconut-Lane which is an online boutique full of every bit of stationary and jewellery that you need to own! If you want to make a purchase head over to their website and you can receive 20% off with the code ‘abigailjessica20’… Thank me later when you have all the accessories possible!  



I carry a notebook with me everywhere I go because you never know what you might need to write down! My notebook is super bright which I love as it makes it a lot easier to find when I’m hunting for it in my bag! This one is from Ikea and was really cheap at only £2. The pages are plain with no lines so you can jot notes down or doodle to your heart’s desire!


I make sure to always carry chewing gum in my bag because you never know what you might eat giving you bad breath or if you’re like me and you just love to chew the gum because it’s really refreshing! CB12  gum* is only £1 and the flavour lasts for what feels like forever! This might sound weird but the gum also looks really pretty! One side is white and one is a baby blue in the shape of a circle and I think they look so cute! I would definitely recommend this gum to anyone and everyone.


No matter where I’m going one item that’s always present has to be my diary. I hate the idea of using my phones diary because what if it suddenly swipes and I’ve lost it all at least this is a paper copy! I originally bought the diary because of how pretty it looked and for £6 it wasn’t going to break my bank because it was so pretty. However the diary has now made me 10x more organised because I can plan out when I’m working when I can put up what blog post and where I should be at what time! I found this gem in Sainsbury’s!


In my bag I always carry my house key.. Well it’s pretty obvious why… I wouldn’t be able to get into my house otherwise! Another trusty member on my lanyard has to be my Waitrose card because of the daily free coffee/tea and there is no way I am missing out on getting that every day! I also have my school card which I have to hand in at the end of this month because I’m leaving but for now… My photo from many years ago still lives on.



 Next up is my bag of everything that needs to be tidy. The little makeup bag is from Kurt Geiger and is the perfect size for all my bits! I decided to go into a bit more detail about each item…


Even though I’m not supposed to use it because I always have eczema on my hands I still carry it just in case! So the next thing is hand-sanitizer from Bath and Body Works in America in a Christmas scent because they are the absolute best! Mine smells like toasted marshmallows it is incredible!



One necessity to be in my handbag has to be a lip balm and I have loved the Nivea lip butter in raspberry. Not only does it look amazing, it smells amazing and it tastes amazing (you probably shouldn’t eat it but if you lick it off your lips then it tastes just like ice-cream!). I normally also carry lipstick but seeing as it is getting ‘hotter’ now I prefer to take lip balm around so that my lips wont dry up! 


I recently cut my hair and because mine is naturally curly it is always knotty. I have been wearing my hair straight a lot now but the knots are still there so I take my trusty tangle teezer with me everywhere. This was a travel one so it is slightly smaller and normally has a cap on it to stop it getting dirty and hair going everywhere but I lost it and so I need to purchase a new tangle teezer I just keep forgetting! I would really recommend a tangle teezer to anyone who gets knotty hair really easily because it doesn’t hurt to brush them out at all with this brush!


One of my favourite favourite brands for body washes has to be Soap and Glory, so I was excited to try out their hand food in sugar crush. The smell... The smell is incredible it makes you die a little every time you sniff it! It really reminds me of the green calipo ice-creams I used to eat when I was younger. The cream itself is very moisturising and doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy at all which I hate about some creams. If you do suffer from dry hands get your butt down to boots and pick up one of these they are super affordable and it does exactly as it says on the tub!


Carrying a pocket mirror is essential to making sure you don’t have lipstick on your teeth or smudged mascara! I picked mine up from Primark for around £1 and it is really good quality and hasn’t smashed woo!


Finally something everyone has tangled in the bottom of their bag is headphones. Mine are just the apple ones that came with my phone but they always end up squashed at the bottom of my bag oops!


I hope you enjoyed this blog post! What one thing do you always have in your bag?
