What’s In My Bag.

I love these posts, I could read or watch them endlessly, I’m just so nosey.

And I know others like myself are equally obsessed, so I thought why not do one myself. As I sure do accumulate a lot of multifarious objects in my bag.

This will be along the lines of whats in my bag if I go on a bigger day out, say to London where I need quite a bit. If I’m just going to the shops I take a little bag with my wallet, phone and headphones. That’s it.


Firstly, the bag itself is from New Look, and was about £19.00. It’s your bog standard backpack, I used it a lot for college, so it is big, but I prefer backpacks and for going to bigger things such as the blogger event, this was a good bag for it.



Of course, we begin with the general essentials we all have in our bags. Our wallets (mine is from Cath Kidston), phone, keys and headphones (Both of which were broken or lost so couldn’t take a photo of them, oops?).




I don’t carry too many beauty bits, if it’s a really important or special event/occasion then I may take a little makeup bag of the essential makeup bits. But I always take deodorant, body spray, mini perfume if I’m going to a special event, a hair brush, hand cream, concealer, powder, brow products, mascara, eyeliner (if I’m wearing eyeliner that day) and a lash curler (I know its bad to do curl your lashes is bad but oh well.) Just the necessities to freshen you up after a bit of travelling or walking around in the crowds and your makeup may be a bit worn or, if you’re like me, you hair gets matted and tangled at the slightest bit of movement.



I like to pretend I’m organised and so carry around my diary, which is pretty huge so should probably find a smaller one too, a notepad in case and ideas come to mind or I need to make a quick not of something. This is a tip which is thrown around in many organising posts and Pinterest posts, but something I definitely think is worth doing. You never know when you need to take a note of something or, if you’re a fellow blogger, when you have a moment on a train or in a coffee shop you can be jotting down and organising all your wonderful ideas!



You know, the junk that we find at the bottom of our bags that just collects. We all have it. Personally, I have a lot of train tickets, bus tickets, receipts (so. many. receipts), hair bands, hair grips, tablets, gum and if you’re lucky, loose coins.

There’s a little peak into my bag, nothing particularly special, but I gathered there would be people as nosey as I am out there! So I hope you liked it.

Until next time,

Em x

    I LOVE these posts too. Call me nosey…lol I’m happy to see that you have other random stuff because I HATE when these posts turn into just perfect purses. I mean I use mine like my home so it’s always got a TON of stuff.

      There’s just something about looking at someone’s stuff aha! I know, all these beautiful purses and accessories and then I look in mine and it’s just rubbish aha!

    I love these posts!! Like you I’m the nosiest person ever and want to see what’s going on in people’s bags. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who has random tickets and tablets at the bottom of mine. Painkillers are good though, so useful to have around for me or someone else who needs them!

    Oh and I love your bag, it’s cute!
