I always read these types of post with interest (I’m a nosey bugger really) but have never actually considered doing one myself because bags have never really been my thing and whilst I do really like the bags I use they aren’t anything special. Now, as you know, I got a Mulberry Daria for my birthday so I couldn’t resist the urge to show it off a little more…..
…….*sigh* isn’t it gorgeous? So this is what I choose to lug around with me everyday I leave the house; an umbrella, this one is totally useless it turns out but I keep forgetting this until it starts raining again and I open it up……it promptly turns itself inside out and offers as much protection as a brown paper bag! I need a new umbrella! Next we have my make up bag which actually doesn’t really have all that much make up in it (stupid allergy!) it does have hand cream, plasters, a glasses repair kit and lip balm though. My hairbrush and hair ties……vital……obvs! My Daria wallet which is just as gorgeous as the bag *sigh*. My teeny blue pencil case which I’ve had for years, I used to always carry a notebook too but now I have my Mum’s old iPad so I use that for making notes. I also use the iPad as an eReader which is much better than carrying around the huge hardback books I always seem to end up reading. I always carry around a bottle of perfume, this one is Tom Ford’s Black Orchid and that’s a bottle of hand sanitizer (essential when you do what I do for a living…..goodness only know’s where those casino chips have been!). My Oyster card which has my years season ticket on it so I’m always terrified of loosing it, Smints mmmmmm Sminty goodness and last but not least is my Guerlain Météorites Voyage compact.
I think this deserves a special mention because it’s just so beautiful. The compact itself is gorgeous…..
……and the powered it contains is just as beautiful and smells of violets! You can also see my iPhone which is always in my bag but as my Fuji instant camera finally died a permanent death the iPhone is the only way I have of taking photos at the moment (outfit posts will be interesting!).
