Let's have a nosey inside my handbag
Everyone in the blogosphere has done a "What's in my handbag" post, except me it seems. So without further ado here is mine.
I use this bag every day, even though I have a cupboard full of bags. Primarily because it holds quite a lot and is a cross body bag, the only type of bag I can use regularly because of my spinal disease as they distribute the weight so I don't hurt my back or neck any more than it already is. It is a black leather Jasper Conran bag from Debenhams which only cost about £40 if I remember correctly, I have had it for about 18 months now.
My purse is a black leather Osprey, bought for me by my lovely son about two years ago. I love this purse, it is so roomy and has lots of pockets for credit cards, loyalty cards etc.
This holds all my medication that I have to have with me at all times. I received it when I bought a Tibetan mala bead bracelet. I have had a lot of jewellery come in these little Asian fabric purses, but usually they are much smaller than this one, this is the ideal size to hold all my meds.
My prescription sunglasses, I have to wear sunglasses whenever we have a bit of sun or I get a horrible headache.
These Camouflage bags are fab, they fold up so neat and small but are very strong.
I only carry a few beauty products most of the time, and these are the things I rarely leave home without. I love perfume samples for throwing in my bag and always have one or two with me. My favourite lip balm is this tinted Burt's Bees, the chap stick is an old favourite that seems to be lasting forever! I love my eye liners so try to always have one with me to try and make it look like I haven't been awake for 72 hours straight! The Dermologica cream is just for when my skin feels particularly dry or tight, and of course - my old faithful - L'occitane hand cream. And finally one of my gorgeous Clinique chubby sticks.
Got to have tissues and wet wipes with me all the time.
This was a Christmas gift and I love it. Down the side is a small pen, when you take the pen out it opens up to a small writing pad, really useful and very pretty.
Odds and sods, my trolley token, tweezers and lighter.
I picked this up as part of a birthday gift when I was shopping the other day and forgot it was in my handbag to be honest.
So there you have it, the contents of my handbag. I used to always carry much bigger bags and carried around everything but the kitchen sink, but as my spinal disease has progressed I am unable to carry that sort of weight and this handbag has become a firm favourite as it is so comfortable to wear and holds a decent amount. I also usually have my cell phone and camera in my bag when I leave the house, but as I haven't been out of the house for a few days, due to my stupid spine, my phone isn't here and of course I was using my camera :)
Do you use the same bag most days, or do you change it out to match your outfits? If you have written a WIMB post please feel free to leave the link below and if I haven't already I will check it out.
