What's in my bag posts are one of my favourite things to read, and it's been about a year since I've done one myself so I thought it was about time for an update!
I bought this silver (although it looks gold in these photos...) bag a few weeks ago, primarily as a laptop bag. My old laptop bag fell apart on the side of a dual carriageway on an industrial estate somewhere outside Loughborough, in the dark and on my own - I could have cried! So I had to do an emergency shopping trip and chose this bag in River Island primarily for the sturdy looking handles!
It's a pretty good size for most things, although I'd love it even more if there was a small inside pocket for essentials like my oystercard instead of having to hunt around for it in the bottom somewhere everytime I need it.
Essentials - I still love my Moleskine diary - I much prefer flicking through its pages to looking things up on a screen, Nicole Farhi glasses without which I cannot see, Sudafed (I'm fighting off a cold at the moment with a combination of sudafed and force of will!), Urban Outfitters purse, Oystercard, iPhone, I never travel anywhere without at least one calculator, ditto one of many Primark umbrellas - this is England afterall, memory stick for datastorage needs - I have a ton like most people I think and can never remember what is saved on which one!
Makeup - Estee Lauder lipsticks in RoseTea and Plumberry, fold up mirror, Boots lipsalve, Topshop blusher, FC5 handcream which came in the November glossybox. It smells really nice, although I've no idea if it is working or not!
