What's in our Handbags!

Isobel's Bag - Mulberry Del Rey in Black & Nickel Grainy Print Leather



Ray Ban Sunglasses - Even though London is mostly grey and rainy, we do get the odd day of blinding sunshine that catches you off guard- always pays off to carry a pair of sunglasses around with you!

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black - Iconic mascara with the coolest packaging, gives great results too.

Hairband - Essential. 

Oyster card in Graffiti holder - My travel pass to the whole of London.

Vaseline & Boots original lip balm - A girl can never have too many lip balms.

Kleenex Balsm Tissues - Unfortunately its the winter cold season, therefore tissues = must have.

Nivea mini Hand Cream - Smells good, does the job in a perfect handbag size.

Nivea Pearl & Beauty Deodorant - My favourite deodorant of all time, I've been using it since I was about 15. Its much nicer than the spray version too.

Wooly Gloves - London is absolutely freezing in the winter months, and I find that my hands suffer the most. These gloves are the perfect pair to keep in my handbag as black goes with everything!

2013 Diary from Oliver Bonas - Keeps me in the right place at the right time.

Umbrella - A Londoner is never without one.

Purse - This purse is the perfect size to keep all my bits and bobs in, I love the cute nautical design as well.

Keys with Bikram Yoga Pass Card - Nice and handy I can just grab my keys and head out to a yoga class without worrying about taking a purse.

Harriet's Bag - MCM First Lady Satchel in Taupe



Because my new handbag is on the petite side I've been forced to streamline my bag contents, this means no hairbrush, umbrella & makeup bag. However it feels quite nice to just carry my absolute favourites around with me, with no unused products weighing me down.


Headphones - I can't face any kind of commute without music! - These are noise canceling ones, so tube user friendly.

Hairband - I always need one of these as my long thick hair constantly gets in my way!

Oyster Card in 'H' Travel Case from Oliver Bonas - I got this Oyster Card holder in my Christmas Stocking, really cute. 

MCM First Lady Purse - I won't show you in here as its a big mess full of receipts. I love that there's enough room inside for my iPhone, if I'm nipping out for lunch at work I can just take my purse without thinking about my handbag.

MOR Lip Balm in Black Cherry - My ALL TIME favourite lip balm, I think that this will be the first lip balm I've ever used up. I need to find another one before it runs out, but unfortunately they're quite hard to find in the UK.

Mini Deodorant 

Tom Ford Black Orchid Perfume 

Mini Laura Mercier Lipgloss in 'Blush' - Another of my all time favourites, the perfect natural lip colour for me.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in 'light 2' - Perfect for on the go touch ups.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Varnish in 'Shocking Pink' - Currently on my nails.

No7 Lash and Brow Perfector - I don't do anything to my brows in the way of shaping so a bit of clear brow gel is essential to keeping them looking groomed. This one is just as good as the MAC equivalent but with a £5 No7 voucher costs just £2!

Anya Hindmarch Coin Purse - Coffee, lunch & taxi money.

Notebook & Pen - Shopping lists/ Workout ideas/ To do lists/ Blog inspiration - all get jotted down in here.

Starbucks Card - Still going strong from my Birthday in December.

2013 Diary

Laura Mercier Mini Hand Cream in Almond Coconut Milk - These mini hand creams are a perfect handbag size and smell divine.
