What's In My Handbag

I have never done a what's in my handbag post. And what better time to start then with a competition. Money Supermarket are once again giving us bloggers the opportunity to win not 1, not 2 but 3 prizes all Mulberry related. A Mulberry Bayswater shoulder handbag, purse and phone case, in a colour of your choice worth £1000. Also six runners up will win £25 asos vouchers, that have been kindly sponsored by I love my bags but have never owned one over a £100 never mind a few hundred so had love nothing more then to win this, I also love asos. You can enter here

The design of this bag is Fiorelli. I got this from Debenhams in the blue cross sale for less then £40.00 full price is £49.00 and it's on sale again at the moment with free delivery. It's a black small leather suedette trimmer grab bag, i love that it's got strap so you can wear it round your shoulder when your hands are full etc and it's more convenient. This isn't neither to big nor to small and it's plenty of space for all your bits and bobs plus little pouches and storage areas with zips. 

Paul Boutique Purse filled with the usual various cards, provisional etc. Two of my most important (money saving) cards are of course Superdrug beauty card and Boots advantage card. Collection points, treating yourself or saving to take huge costs off at Christmas. I need a new bigger purse it doesn't fit all my cards in practically I literally have to empty majority to find the one I need plus it pops open due to the amount of coins in the coin section.

Body shop lip butter, passport, comb, Odeon cinema ticket, The body shop compact brush/mirror, a pack of tissures, mua power pout, sexy mother pucker lipgloss, a tin of hand cream, two bobbles and some soap and glory body butter.

 I occasionally pop my camera in my bag you never know if you might see a beautiful scene that is a photo op - I have a pretty basic camera Sony cyber-shot. I bring my Kindle with me occasionally too, this i believe is the second one that was released. I didn't think to ask for a kindle HD fire. Keys (I absolutely love Eeyore, huge obsession got few keyrings of nights out and family.) Sunglasses from Primark, my prescription glasses which i didn't photograph because i need new ones these have broke so many times plus the lens are seriously decked and last but not least my phone just a Samsung galaxy ace i could do with a phone had this for quite sometime now (a year and half lol).

Roll on, deodorant and a pen. I occasionally bring along a pad and my pendleside hospice form for obvious reasons. (If you wish you can sponsor me using the pendleside hospice tab on the right, here you will find more information and there is a raffle)

So there you have it. Various handbag stuff that's in most girls. I don't tend to bring my make up bag out when i do just a few basics like lip products that occasionally need touch-ups.

Five people I will refer to enter are:


  1. I just took a peak in my bag, it's full of old shopping lists, register receipts, a packet of gum, a protein bar and I think I saw a lip balm in there somewhere.

    I like you bag better :o)

    1. Everyone's bag gets like that sometimes. Thank you its pretty plain and simple but it does the job xx

  2. Haha my bag has less then yours. Lipbalm or lipstick, mirror, purse, tissues and baby wipes in case my son gets messy, drinks and I'm good to go lol. I hate reapplying make up and never do it outside, xoxo.

    1. I have a changing bag for the kids stuff. Except I do get the occasional little fingers in my bag all over my stuff, mainly purse. I don't apply make-up either maybe some lippy. I don't have this stuff all the time, my kindle and camera only occasionally. xx

    2. You have two lil ones so I understand why you have the changing bag lol, xoxo.

  3. I really like your bag :)

    I didn't know about this competition so thanks for sharing. My bag is mostly full of wet wipes, dummies, bibs and other baby paraphanalia (spelt wrong probably lol) these days!
