Hello Beautiful People,
In today’s post I want to show you, what’s in my bag. I don’t know about you guys but I love looking at what people carry in their bag. Call it being nosy or just plain curiosity, looking at what people carry is a way of getting inspired and it gives you ideas on what you could be carrying! As you may know by now, I finished my second year of university. So…hell yess to no more having to carry heavy bags filled with; notebooks, reading books, laptop and a whole lot of other stuff that causes your shoulder to ache (who can relate?) In this edition you will see what I carry during summer, whether its going to shopping, sight seeing or meeting friends for a day out.
Before I get started, I want to talk about the bag itself…
My bag is from H&M- I wish I can attach a link for you guys to check it out but I checked the website and they don’t have it anymore! It sucks because this bag sold out so quickly. I originally wanted the black colour but the next day it was gone and boyyy did I check, not just online but the stores in Oxford Street and Westfield in London but nope not a chance… I was lucky to find one in grey! This is called a shopper bag, its reversible but I use the imitation leather as the exterior as the suede will just get dirty easily. Its very lightweight, feels like you’re carrying a cloud rather than a bag and its spacious with no compartments. You ready to take a peek into the bag? Waits…No Reply… I’ll take that as a yes!
I’m first just going to answer you’re question… Why the hell is she carrying an umbrella if its summer? Well… If you live in England like me, no matter the weather you need an umbrella. It could be the hottest day, you may be ready to go out and chill in the garden, ready to take in that vitamin D and guess what? The next minute you will be soaked with rain. So, yeah an umbrella is a must!
The next item I carry is a a small white and grey pouch it looks like snake skin but its fake! Can you see that Mickey Mouse? Yeah! Thats my keychain, I have my keys in that pouch because, once upon a time, a clumsy Ela chucked her keys in her bag carelessly and later on found out that she cracked her phone screen… Nope, I didn’t have a protector on. So, after a upsetting lesson I now carry my keys in a zip up pouch.
I carry my sunglasses in my bag all the time. Do I wear it? Errr nope… Only on days when my vision is extremely affected by the blinding sun. This may sound silly but when I have sunglasses on my eyes feel a bit claustrophobic. Yep, that makes no sense but my eyes need to breathe guys! That sounds sillier, moving on…
I recently told another blogger on WordPress that I loved her nails because she had this amazing marble design… If she sees this, she’ll understand my obsession when looking at my notebook. I bet that gave you a hint on what I’m going to talk about next. Yes! I carry a notebook, especially within this time period as I’m about to move to a new house with two of my friends (we renting for our third year of uni) and I’m a visual person, I need to write down and be able to see a list in order to feel organised and I keep dates of when rent needs to be paid and contact numbers of companies and all the other adult stuff that I’m not ready to do right now.
Another item I carry that is a must is my purse… which is from a store called Stradivarious- its a glitter purse with metal plate trim. I love it because its very sturdy, it has a strong zip (watch me jinx it now) and fits literally all of my stuff. Cards, coins, receipts and vouchers is all in there. It only cost me £9.99 and is currently on sale. Here is the link- Stradivarious Purse
The last thing I carry is my makeup bag! In it I carry;
- Aveeno hand cream- you need those hands moisturised. Always!
- A compact mirror- for touch ups and to remove that mascara that found its way to the side of my eye.
- Aspirin- I don’t overdose on it but it does help with the headaches.
- A roll on perfume- I hate carrying full size bottles of spray or perfume.
- Caudalíe Lip Conditioner- its not only the hands that need nourishment.
- Elizabeth Arden Lash Extending Treatment Mascara- believe it or not sometimes I forget to apply mascara so imagine me on the bus trying not to poke my eye…yep not fun.
- Chantecaille Lipstick in the colour ‘Camellia’- I asked my dad to describe the colour he went it looks like the colour of a brick… That is the last time I ask him A question like that! No guys, its a very pretty rose colour not too deep not too light it has no sparkle but high shine. Treat yourselves people! You deserve it…
