Hi Me Lovelies,
It has indeed been a minute since I updated here an I apologise for my unannounced hiatus. I recently blogged about my love for my Zara Office City Bag here and quite a few of you asked for a "What's in My Bag?" post and I thought why ever not?So, here is a peep into what's currently in my bag and I hope you enjoy it...
The Handbag- Zara City Bag
I think this bag is the second most popular Zara bag after the never-ending fame of the Zara bucket bags which everyone had. My Zara City bag is one year old already and it is still as sturdy as it was when i first got it. I already have a dedicated post to the Zara City Bag so head on over here for a full review.
The Makeup Bag-Lancome Luxury Makeup Bag
I am not going to go into much details with this because i already have a post here for "What's in my makeup bag?". Although, I have upgraded my makeup bag from the former H&M one (which served me really well) to a Lancome one which was a free gift alongside other lovely samples I received on purchase of some Lancome featured here. The contents of my makeup bag have slightly changed with the weather but it's essentially the same items; My powder, lip gloss, lipstick, mini kabuki and the works. My makeup bag holds everything for refreshing my face while at work or if I am going out straight from work.
The Wallet- Primark Gold Embossed Purse
Again, I have already featured this bag here so check it out here if you want more pictures of this little beauty. I really like it and it was only £5-how amazing is that? I love it because it also has many compartments to fit in my cards, some cash(when I have some, hehehehe) and some coins. If I ever leave home without my wallet, it will definitely not be an ideal day and it stays permanently in my bag.
My Phones- iPhone 5 and Samsung( I cannot remember the model-it's a flip though)
To be honest, My iPhone is hardly in my bag because it is always in my hands or in my coat/jacket/blazer pocket. At work, it is always on the table with me which is why it is called a mobile phone and not a bag phone.... My iPhone and I are virtually inseparable. My other phone is a Samsung Flip Phone and I honestly cannot remember the model but I use it to call my family back home in Nigeria with my Lebara SIM card and that's all I do with it which explains why it is always fully charged.
Diary and Notebook
This diary was given to me by the BF and I love it so much. I am still the old diary lady and i love to collect diaries and all sorts of stationery. They make me happy (but not as happy as beauty, skincare and makeup does--nah, nothing comes close enough!) and I love to write in them. My dad used to give me diaries every year and I loved them so much and I actually had a day-to-day diary when I was younger and up till my late teens..I guess blogging has replaced all that. My Notebook is from Guardian Jobs and I recently received this at a work conference. I love how sturdy it is and the navy blue colour contrast well with my diary. I write all kinds of list in here from shopping lists to grocery list to To-do lists...any list you can think of has been written here
Glasses and Spare Contact Lens
Yeah, I wear glasses because my eyesight is very dodgy but it's getting better or rather it's not getting any worse. I really hate wearing glasses and this explains why no one at work has ever since me wear my glasses. I reserve them for night time when I am in cosy-ed up in bed and i need to do any late night reading or browsing on my laptop. I wear daily disposable contact lens everyday and it's so expensive but it is one of the most important things to me; it's just one of those sacrifices one makes. My glasses are my backup if my contact lens are acting up which they have done on a few occasions. I have spare contacts for the same reason but the whole shenanigans of washing my hands and finding a clean place to change them makes me reach for my glasses in such situations.
Water Bottle-Primark Grey Water Bottle
I cannot remember the last time I ever left the house without my water bottle filled with water. Water is about the only drink I ever drink and I love it just the way it is. I hardly drink Soda or Fizzy drinks except if I go to a fast food joint or restaurant and I am trying to be healthy so I limit these outings. Water is one of the most beautiful and satisfying gifts God has given to the world. Our bodies are made up of 50-60% water which is no surprise as my body really loves water. Besides, water is so expensive here in the UK and I am sure everywhere else and spending 80p-£1 on water has never made me smile. Ever!!.
The Miscellaneous Purse
This is where I keep all my random items like some Paracetamol, Pens, Hand Sanitizers, my Gym Padlock, Work ID, Hair bands, Mints/Chewing gum. I hate to have a messy bag with things all over the place which is why I got this little purse to put in essential things which I may need during the course of the day but they are things that can't be kept in their own compartments within the bag. I also have the Keys to my house somewhere in there and my Oyster Card for travel which I always slip into my jacket for easy access when I am on the go.
Charger and Ear Phones
I just throw this into one of the spare compartments because I hate to forget any of them. My ear phones are extremely important to me when commuting because I can listen to some music or audible books on my iPhone. Whoever invented ear phones deserves a squishy hug and huge kiss (that sounds gross though!) from me. My charger on the other hand ensures I can keep my phone fully charged while I am at work for the travel later when the day is over.
That's it folks.. I seriously hope I have not bored you. Sometimes, a person's handbag can give you a glimpse of their personality and I hope I have achieved that, even a teeny weeny bit, with this post. Leave me a comment below if you have done this tag or if we share any handbag items...see you in my next post and have a smashing week ahead.
