What's In My Bag

I was inspired to photograph the contents of my bag when I read this post on the wonderful Everything Pretty blog. I've always been fascinated by what other people keep in their bags (Marie Claire USA does those wonderful peeks into celebrity handbags on the last page), and so I thought I'd share with you the things that I am carrying around in mine at the moment.


Above are the items which are usually in my bag: phones (Irish and UK), glasses, Filofax, camera, purse, perfume (Love, ChloƩ), pen, nail file, keys, and a little black bag filled with some other essentials.



My Filofax is always ridiculously full: as you can see above, it is filled with scraps of paper, postcards, addresses, stamps, perfume samples...anything papery that I find, really!


And here are the contents of my little black 'bag inside my bag': cherry Carmex, pink and red lip stains, a little compact mirror which belonged to my grandmother (it once contained something from Yardley), my favourite chewing gum (I like the peppermint one too) which I am never without, another pen, some tablets (painkillers, allergy tablets and travel sickness pills, plus a lemsip sachet just in case!), two little Miffy highlighter pens, and a little 'Free Hugs' purse which contains the selection of hair bands and clips you can see. 


And at the moment, all of that fits (just about!) into my trusty Warehouse bag.

  2. That's a gorgeous bag! And you keep the same things that I do...I have so many papers bundled into mine, and love to carry a couple types of lip stain.

    It's fun peeking into other people's purses like this. It's interesting how you've got two phones!
