I used to always feel like Mary Poppins with the size of handbags I carried around, filled with everything I might of needed throughout the day (I like to be prepared!). However all that changed when I got this gorgeous Michael Kors handbag for Christmas from my amazing parents!
It’s not something I would have chosen and bought for myself however as it was smaller than the other bags I had. But I absolutely adore it! I love it in Navy. It’s also simple yet goes with everything.
Having downsized in handbags has been good for me (and my arms!) as I definitely carry round more of the essentials.
Here’s what’s in my handbag…
Ted Baker Purse – I got this for my 21st from Dino and I adore it! It has a gorgeous floral pattern on the inside.
Superdrug Mini Hairbrush & Mirror – This is handy when you need to freshen up your hair throughout the day or use the mirror to check anything!
Salted Caramel Lip Balm – I usually try to avoid lip balms with a strong scent but this works wonders on my lips. It moisturises them and makes them super soft. The smell is delightful as well.
Invisi Bobble in Black – These bobbles are a life saver! They don’t leave any of those annoying kinks after you’ve spent ages straightening your hair.
Fiat 500 Car Keys
Bath and Body Works ‘New York’ Hand Sanitiser – I love love love Bath and Body Works. They’re hand sanitisers not only smell out of this world but they actually moisturise your hands instead of drying them out like other brands.
ELF Eyelash Curlers – I picked these up in Old Navy when I was shopping while visiting my sis in Toronto as I needed a new pair.
Barry M Clear Nail Paint – I sometimes have this with me as it definitely comes in handy when you get that pesky ladder in your tights. Put a dap of the polish on it and it won’t grow.
NIVEA Age Defence Hand Cream – I love the smell of this hand cream, it’s so refreshing. I don’t really use the cream for anti ageing, I just really like how the cream makes my hands feel.
BENEFIT Dandelion Lipgloss – I’m a huge fan of the Dandelion Powder, and when I got this as a present I knew I was going to love it. It’s not very sticky like other glosses and gives a natural glowy finish to my lips.
CHANEL Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Spray – This is my all time favourite perfume!
