What's in my bag?

So, a post which I often like reading is 'what's in my bag?'.. I think that it's an interesting way of learning about a person and therefore, I have decided to do my own 'what's in my bag' post. I hope you enjoy :-)

Well, first of all, here's my bag. If you know me, you'll know that the only time I don't use this bag is if i'm wearing something tartan or something red. Pretty much every other day, I use this bag. I get overly attached to bags and use them until it is just stupid to use them any longer. This one is from River Island and I got it for Christmas and I have got so, so much use of it. Thank you to my bag for hanging on this long!

Firstly, and most importantly, is my car keys! I couldn't get very far without them (especially with living quite far away from shops, friends, etc.) and so these are the ultimate must in my bag. I'm a little bit in love with my keyrings. Each one represents something different for me which I like. I don't think people usually put much thought into which keyrings get put on their keys but I'm a weirdo so I do, haha. Aren't they cute though?

Next, is my phone. Not surprising in this day and age, I know. This needs no explanation as I'm pretty sure everyone reading this is also addicted to their phone. But my phone cover is the cutest thing ever. I love, love, love Lilo and Stitch.

My purse is another obvious one. I always bring it, just in case I see something that must be bought.. even if I plan on not buying anything, I need it in case I get desperate. I also have all my little cards, like my AA card in case of a breakdown and things like that. If you know me, you'll know very well that I am obsessed with anything that is leopard print. I have leopard print leggings, jumpers, coats, underwear.. everythinggggg (except socks but I'm working on that one, haha!) so of course my purse had to be a leopard print one.

Tissues are an absolute must! They always come in handy and it always seems to be that when I don't have them, I desperately need them so in order to solve that problem, I never leave the house without them.

If like me, you live in Ireland, you will understand how necessary an umbrella is. The weather here is shit, to put it bluntly. As you've already seen, everything I own must be leopard print so obviously the umbrella had to be as well, haha! It's from River Island by the way.

Hand cream is a very important one because I often have dry hands and if I don't have hand cream, it drives me crazy. Especially when I'm in work because I would wash my hands a lot because of handling money so my hands get even drier more quickly, so hand cream is essential! I absolutely love this Sanctuary one.. it smells so, so good.

I also always have a nail file because I can't stand it when a nail breaks and it's all rough. It has to be filed asap, so I always carry one about.

I always have some deodrant in my bag just to keep fresh and this one smells fab too!

Two things that I always keep together in my bag, especially during the colder months, is Carmex and Vicks. When it's cold and you have dry lips and a stuffy nose, it's just the most horrible feeling. Half of the time, it doesn't even have to be cold though and I still have a stuffy nose so I always have this with me. I don't know why, but I'm a very cold person.. forever having freezing cold hands/feet and always get blocked noses. What's wrong with me? Someone tell me because it's rather annoying.

I nearly always have chewing gum in my bag.. I just like to have minty fresh breath all the time and it always helps in work when I start getting a little peckish and I'm trying not to eat every sweet in the shop. Sorry for the disgusting torn packet but I always do this with chewing gum.

I always bring a mirror out with me. I very rarely use it but you always need one in case you need to check for food stuck in your teeth or hair sticking out, haha. This one is a Dove one and it's so cute.

Last but not least, I always have some lipgloss. I never really carry much make-up about with me unless I'm going out for the night or for dinner or something.. the rest of the time, I just bring some lipgloss and occasionally some concealer. I don't know why but I think you always feel more fresh with a bit of lipgloss on. It's so cringe but at the minute, I have a 'The Only Way is Essex' lipgloss in my bag, hahaha. I got it as a Christmas present and never used it but then I realised how good it smelled and this one is actually a really nice pink/orangey colour and it just adds a bit of colour to any look so yeah :-) 

I usually have my iPod in my bag too but it's in my car at the minute, along with my sunglasses, my emergency make-up kit and extra hand cream, haha.

Well that's it. I hope you enjoyed this post :-) I know it's a bit lengthy but I just think it's a nice way to find out a bit about someone. Anyway, goodbye lovelies!
