Handbag Must Haves

Hello my lovelies, today I thought we’d talk about my handbag essentials that I carry around with me everyday along with all the other junk I store inside my bag.


My bag is from LYDC and I really wish I had a name to give you guys but I got it in the sale at a local department store and can’t find it on the website. Sorry for being awful. Now, let’s have a nosy at what I carry around with me.


Ted Baker Mint Body Spray – I absolutely adore this scent, I actually got it as a Christmas gift from my Uncle and was not expecting to love it so much. I like to carry this around in my handbag for those days when I forget my perfume, or if I’m wearing this fragrance that day then for a nice top up! It’s a very feminine scent which is floral but musky at same time by the addition of vanilla, for those of you that are interested.

Nude lipstick – I always have a nude lipstick in my bag because it’s what I tend to wear most days so it’s always to hand if I need to reapply. The one pictured is Mac’s Honeylove, which is one of my absolute favourites as it’s ultra matte which I adore.

Red lipstick – There appears to be a lipstick theme forming… I always like to carry a red lipstick with me as it’s perfect for turning a look from day to night. I carry mine around with me all the time just in case I go out after work on a last minute date etc, I mean it rarely happens but it’s good to be prepared! The lipstick pictured is Clinique’s Pop Lip Colour in Cherry Pop.

Powder + Brush– Essential for touch ups so that I’m not walking around looking like a disco ball with all that shine. I’m currently on the hunt for a new powder so any recommendations then please let me know!

Blogger Journal – I adore this journal, it’s perfect for bloggers (as the name would suggest) and has everything you need in one place. I like to carry mine with me wherever I go for when I have random bursts of inspiration. You can grab yours here.

Other handbag essentials that aren’t pictured, as they seemed rather boring and unphotogenic: my purse, a box of paracetamol (just in case), a drink – I must have a drink on me at all times or I panic(!), chewing gum, an extra hair band, my sunglasses (which wouldn’t have been boring to photograph I just forgot, ooops) and finally 3 weeks worth of rubbish and receipts because I’m an awful person.

What are your handbag essentials? Do you hoard rubbish in your bag like me?

Until next time, I’m back off down the rabbit hole.
