What’s In My Bag?


I like reading these posts on other peoples blogs because I’m rather nosey. So fair is fair, here’s mine.

My trusty floppy cross body bag. I’m not built to lug a heavy statement bag around that’s wider than I am, so this works well.

Tiny bottle opener because I’m not one of those people who can pop open a cap using the edge of a wall. I wish I were.

My crappy old phone that no one will nick off me when I’m waiting for the bus in Piccadilly at night.

My crappy old phone charger. I’m back and forth to The Blokes so often it has to stay with me. I’ve just realised I’ve picked up the wrong one, doh!

My rubber spiky pen because weirdo should have one.

My keys with a little pot clog (The Bloke has the other one) and the remains of a good luck pendant I bought from the big hippie market in Ibiza when I was 13.

Healthy food suggestions from a magazine that I must remember to buy, eventually.

My awesome Kahuna watch with a broken strap I need to get replaced, eventually.

A lip balm for day and gloss for night.

Face (T-zone) blotting tissues which also work well on a greasy fringe when you are on the run.

A heart shaped compact mirror. The cutest, girliest thing I own.

Mathew Williamson purse (the only thing by him I’ll ever be able to afford) with pockets for everything.

I finally found a notebook that isn’t spiral bound on the left so it does hurt to write left handed. I love that it features a Celtic knot made up of dogs!?

    Love your bag and you are very practical – mine is a big old mess! 🙂

      I don’t have the dexterity or patience to faff around finding things – especially in a really floppy bag, it would be a nightmare!

      It shows you have a creative and energetic personality, that does, Kerrie ;0)

    I used to have one of these River Island messenger bags! I wore it almost every day until I broke the strap beyond repair haha
